Search and Rescue at Portus Lemanis Quake Site

Before the Swift Deliverer had even touched down on the deck of the Corvo Mortis’ Landing Bay 4, Brother-Librarian Ordo had already initiated the Disembark Litany. Klaxons were sounding the warning that the ramp was lowering while the transport was still in the air. Having practiced this thousands of time, Ordos was stepping on the Motis‘ deck at the same time that the Swift Deliverer had settled on its struts.

To the servitors and support personnel he barked, “See to the men, they need to be rearmed, repaired and ready to back in 2 hours!”

He continued heading straight to Quartermaster to requisition jump packs for another squad of Vanguard Vets. The Swift Deliverer was refueled by the time by the time Squad Shaan arrived on deck. It was less than 2 hours before they were on their way back to the quake site.

Brother-Librarian Ordos was even more brooding and ominous than usual on the trip back down to the site. Unable to rely on vox and auspex, a lesson hard learned from the last disastrous encounter at the site, units arriving on station would regroup in the center, where they could protect each other’s flanks.
