The Dreamscape: Somnum Exterreri

The Dreamscape: Somnum Exterreri

0 INK

Politics have always been convoluted, and lust for power will always lead to bloodshed. After all, the betrayal of human life is not something that can be so easily forgiven.

3,005 readers have visited The Dreamscape: Somnum Exterreri since TheKeeper created it.

Introduction

A research project headed by the most esteemed doctors and scientists gone horribly awry has left the world systematically divided for well over a century.

In their quest for knowledge, they discovered the secret to human existence - Dreaming. They found that the human brain had connections to unused neural pathways, allowing each individual person to develop powers as unique and distinct as they were.

Unfortunately, power invites the spite of those who do not have it. The subjects of this project who had not gone insane or suffered severe mental, psychological, or physical impairment, were set free. Years later, a kill order released under the authority of the most powerful nations subdued what were now known as Dreamers, bringing them under the control of the authoritarian entity known as The Coalition. Many of them were killed.

Others managed to escape.

The Dreamscape, a hidden city found on a landmass far off the northern coast, is the last true refuge for the Dreamers.


"Alea iact est in bellum internecium."
"The die is cast in a deadly war."


Countries/Factions:

Exercitus Ludicii(Army of Final Judgment)(Latin) - An entire country that is populated by soldiers of varying rank and skill, as well as their families. This land was commandeered by the combined military strength of Condellium, Urteil, and Omorfia; this combined military then proceeded to break away from its superiors and form their own government. It works surprisingly well, and they are currently the most powerful nation, even if the other heads of state would hardly refer to them as such. They have made it their personal mission to hunt down the last of the free Dreamers. Due to the exceedingly large military presence(and thus, military trash) of this country, there is hardly any vegetation or plant life. Instead, the land runs nearly barren aside from the plains of tallgrass to the east and southeast - towards the coast.
Population: 390 Million, only a third of which are actually soldiers. Due to their motherlands strict rules regarding high treason and defection, their extended families had to escape with them on pain of death. Despite the fact that all of its citizens are deserters, the other countries do support them in their endeavors.

Prime Supporter: Condellium(To Condemn)(Latin) - Condellium is known for its harsh laws, and even harsher punishments. Those who break their laws are seldom seen again, and even if they are they return severely changed. They are one of the three prime supporters of the Anti-Transitional Realism Act, despite the dissent it stirred in the populace. They are the most heavily militaristic of the non-militaristic nations. This redundancy stems from the fact that more than half of their military defected when the Exercitus Ludicii was formed, and thus nearly every one of their citizens - save for the children and elderly - was drafted into the service. Their land is heavily industrialized, with next to no vegetation within their borders. The mechanical overtake of the land has turned Condellium into somewhat of a prison to its citizenry, leaving a bitter taste in the mouths of all that live there.
Population: 1.21 Billion. Nearly ¾ of these people either are currently serving, will serve, or have served in the military. Others were born to highly dignified diplomats or families of merit, allowing them to opt out of the service.

Prime Supporter: Urteil(Judgement)(German) - Known for their strict military practices, fiercely loyal people, and incessant lack of manners, Urteil is truly an acquired taste. They are one of the three prime supporters of the “Anti-Transitional- Realism Act”, which is the agreement signed by three of the most powerful countries in order to carry out an execution order upon those with Dreamer Abilities. Urteil is known for its brutal regulations - namely the “Vincientes” - or Binding Oath. It is an oath that all children are forced to recite the day their parents believe they are ready, although it normally takes place on their eighth birthday. This oath prevents them from ever disobeying an order, revealing incriminating information, or defecting(which is why there are so few Urteil-natives among the Exercitus Ludicii). This oath has even been known to push people to their limits when in extreme situations, even saving an unconscious person from drowning. Urteil is a land of wealth and unhappy people, with cobblestone streets, large chapels, and tall gothic architecture wreathed in gold and silver. The land is shrouded with greenery, allowing this place to bear an all too innocent disguise.
Population: 1.5 Billion. Urteil has the largest land area and most robust economy of the larger countries, allowing it to produce more per capita than the others. They do, however, keep most of this for themselves.

Prime Supporter:Omorfia(Beauty)(Greek) - Like Urteil, Omorfia bears a docile look. They are known for their largely preserved stretches of forest and meadows - and also for their brutal military practices. While Omorfia is largely countryside villas and small villages/towns, there are still several major cities that dot its landscape. These cities are what house their military forces and most of their population. They are one of the three prime supporters of the Anti-Transitional Realism Act, a cause to which they have contributed immeasurable resources. Despite their tame look, more than half of the Exercitus Ludicii is comprised of their former soldiers, a testament to how large their army truly is.
Population: 2.4 Billion. They do engage in a surprising amount of trade with the other countries that are a part of the coalition, allowing them to experience hefty growth in short periods of time. They have, by far, the largest population.

Xiwang - This country, while not as large as the others, is quite outspoken against the Dreamers. It was not one of the three supporters despite the public outcry against those who wielded abilities, because the president in office at the time was sympathetic to their cause. This continued for generations until the Coalition forced them to pass the Act, in hopes of eradicating what was left of the Dreamers. When the ATRA was passed, the current head of state, who was the great grandchild of the original head of state, was removed from office and burned alive, like most of the dreamers in the country were. They are known for their rather simple and brutal caste system, which determines one’s role from birth. Funnily enough, most of the Dreamers were located within the upper ranks, and so the subsequent firebombing of the capitals and surrounding areas resulted in more civilian loss of life than intended. This led to their most notorious massacre, called “The Witch Burning.” They have a great love for their agri-business, and so most of the farmland is owned by corporations and companies. The few family farms that remain are intentionally well-funded by these corps, allowing them to live better than most. Their Caste is as follows:
Royal Family
President
Inner Circle
Bureaucrats
Wealthy Business owners
Owners of Family Farms
Inner City Dwellers
Outer Ring
Peasantry
Indentured Servants

Other countries have berated them in the past for keeping such a system in place, but it is the only way of life they have ever led, and their people are among the happiest in Atrium.
Population: 1.4 Billion. With this many people under a caste system, producing the most food of any other country, they are quite wealthy. They do not, however, spend that wealth on their people. Instead they use it to constantly repair the land and homes damaged by the regular firebombings.


Procellium Oceanus(Storming Ocean)(Latin) - A country that is not truly a part of the land at all. The entirety of this country is found at sea, upon large floating contraptions that are several kilometers wide at a time, bearing large skyscrapers and entire plates dedicated to greenery and forests. While they can vary in size, their purpose remains the same - to carry their cities and citizens offshore and to the open sea. Many have praised them for such innovation, and they are indeed quite proud of it. They were not one of the three supporters, and despite the outcry against Dreamers elsewhere, almost none of their population holds any sort of grudge against those with abilities, although they maintain a strict neutrality policy due to the tensions surrounding Dreamers and their subsequent uprisings. Their borders are often disputed by other seafaring vessels - although they maintain it the same each time it is called into question - fifty kilometers from their floating ports is their controlled oceanic territory, and they have fought to defend this before.
Population: 1 Billion. Surprisingly enough, these floating plates are more than enough to sustain one billion people, a testament to their resilience, and the resilience of the country itself.



Maeror(Sorrow)(Latin) - A small country with almost no history to speak of. Nearly all of it is slums, in which the poor people of this land make a meager living doing what fishing they can off of the continuously stormy coast. This country did not exist when the ATRA was passed nearly a century and a half prior, although it was formed sometime between then and the present(historians are not quite able to deduce when it was formed, although the general consensus seems to be about one-hundred years following the ATRA’s initial passing). Despite its meager borders and land, it is considered a haven for those fleeing the larger countries. As such, it has begun to grow and mature as a country.
Population: 30,000. Maeror’s population is undocumented because their existence is not formally acknowledged by the rest of the world. In reality, their addition to the WP would make it 7,900,030,000, but because it does not technically exist by coalition standards, there are nearly 30,000 people that remain under the radar.


Other Factions:

The Dreamer's Republic/Dreamscape: Sometimes referred to as Refugium Somniantes, little is known about this particular place. Few non-dreamers have ever seen it, and fewer still return from within its borders.
Population: Unknown



Dreamer abilities are steeped in one's dreams, allowing for unique powers that, when controlled properly, are a sight to behold.

Ranks:

Beginner - Daydreamer

B-Intermediate - Normalcy

Intermediate - Awakened

A-Intermediate - Nightmare

Advanced to Mastery - Lucid

Each level of mastery over one’s abilities is named after its corresponding stage of REM sleep. Daydreamers and Normal level wielders are named as such for their newly discovered abilities. When powers manifest, it will almost always be in the middle of sleep. As such, the following burst of power can be quite deadly to those caught unprepared. Every situation is different, due to the extreme variance in abilities from one Dreamer to another. When these powers are finally suppressed enough to be able to put them under the control of their owner, they are admitted for training under the Umbra Corps. When their training is complete, they will almost always be at Awakened level. This is the level where most Dreamer abilities will plateau in their power, rarely reaching a high enough level to be considered more than this. Even if they are only Awakened, Dreamers are always formidable, and depending upon the nature of their abilities can be very dangerous even to those of Nightmare or Lucid rank. Through training, it is possible to increase one’s own level of power in order to achieve a higher rank.

Those of higher power than Awakened, namely Nightmare and Lucid rank Dreamers, are put in positions of authority and power. Nightmare is much more common than Lucid, and yet still just as difficult to achieve. Nightmare level of mastery is often times the most unstable place for a Dreamer to be, for it is when their powers begin to fight against their very owner. There are few cases of a Dreamer failing to control this, but in the event that someone is not resilient enough to do so the results have been catastrophic. Lucid Mastery is quite the same as reaching a form of enlightenment, allowing Dreamers to remain in control of their powers indefinitely and to use them in very unique ways. This level of power is rarely seen or achieved, and as such those who wield it often have responsibility foisted upon them.

Seven Dreamer Units:

*Every Pillar wears a maroon band around their upper right arm to signify their rank. Along with this, they are given a badge that reflects their authority and represents their unit. If they do not wear a band around their arm, the color red is almost always present somewhere upon their clothing.

Unit One: The Umbra Corps. This Pillar is responsible for training the Dreamers that apply for the specialized units, as well as those with unusual or unique abilities. The unit in and of itself is responsible for taking high risk operations into their own hands that cannot be achieved by normal means. The Umbra Unit is the smallest of the seven, comprised of only a few dozen people.

Unit Two: The Vanguard. This Pillar is responsible for training soldiers that are not involved in any of the seven core units. The unit itself is the largest of the seven, and with good reason. They are always the spearhead of their Elite forces, and as such are expected to be trained and led well.

Unit Three: The Night Corps. They, like the Umbra Unit, are very mysterious and rarely ever take missions whose parameters do not include “under cover of darkness.” Considered to be the least trustworthy bunch in the army, they are put under the command of a Pillar to ensure that the threat of treason remains minimal. This unit only accepts those with stealth-oriented abilities.

Unit Four: Medical Specialization Unit. This unit is the one that is called on when people are in need of medical attention. Within this unit are those whose abilities manifested with healing properties, allowing them to care for the sick, injured, and elderly. This unit is also responsible for producing all of the medical equipment that is distributed within the Dreamscape.

Unit Five: Recon and Intelligence Unit. They are responsible for gathering intelligence and relaying it to the Pillars in order for them to make informed decisions. Reconnaissance missions are regularly performed not only to keep this unit in shape, but to ensure that the Dreamscape is not discovered. Thus, with their seemingly uncanny ability to gather information and put it to good use, they are the backbone of the Army.

Unit Six: Weaponry and Combat Unit. This is the unit that is completely responsible for constructing, maintaining, and distributing weapons to the army, as well as those who are not assigned to the seven core units. This unit is also home to weapon specialists, who are capable of doing immeasurable damage.

Unit Seven: Tactical Intel and Formatory Unit. This unit is responsible for the tactical warfare of the army. Everything that the soldiers do is ordered and controlled by them, and as such the dreamers assigned to this unit almost always have sensory abilities. This unit is also responsible, funnily enough, for the repairs and construction within the Dreamscape, making them the second largest of the seven core units.

#, as written by K0VIP3R
It rained as it normally did in Exercitus Ludicci. The bullet-like droplets carried on peppering the grey stone and metal walls that haphazardly lined the mostly barren landscape. In the dry season the mud and dirty pools of water typically turn to dusty earth and weathered gullies, making travel just as irritating as the pouring rain. However the mere weeks of the dry season were still a ways off and Mother Nature seemed intent on pummelling the buildings, vehicles and people of Exercitus Ludicci.

In what could loosely be described as a training ground, in amongst the mismatch of buildings that made up the Army’s city, a small platoon of soldiers were standing to attention clad only in t-shirts, boots and trousers, bearing the weather as best as their bodies could muster. They stood rigid, almost ignoring the fatigue and hypothermia that was starting to set into their bones as another soldier, clad in officers’ colours and medals paced in front of the soldiers; intently focused on their expressions and posture. This officer was a young woman, definitely good looking and fairly more masculinely built than your average lady however Exercitus women were definitely more physically imposing than most. Her long raven coloured hair was plastered to her back, neck and face, as sodden as most of the soldiers she was inspecting. Her battle hardened face was stoic and cold, not feeling any empathy for the individuals that stood in front of her.

“It’s been 12 minutes since you started standing in this downpour.” She stated flatly, not meeting the gaze of any one soldier, instead, her gaze swept the entire row in front of her, flicking water from her hair as she did so. “In another 3 minutes, the weaker of you will be suffering from hypothermia.” At that point she smiled; a smile that would cause most hearts to falter slightly at the sight of it. “So to get you all nicely warmed up before you come in for your breakfast, I think 10 laps around the training ground should suffice. At full march speed!”

She was met with a chorus of “Yes Ma’am!” before the soldiers took off in perfect formation at a reasonably fast pace. The officer returned to a sheltered zone attached to the building behind her where she was met by another officer of equal stature. Her long blonde hair dropped to her waist and her crimson eyes locked with her colleague’s own. Her figure was more lithe than her colleagues but both were arguably as attractive as each other. She caught noticed of the ornate longsword strapped to her waist.

“What an unexpected pleasure, General Windsor. How rare it is to see you outside of your office. Did you finally grow a backbone?” The raven haired General said mockingly. Her words however seemed to do little than elicit a slight smile from her counterpart.

“General Sato, it would be wise for you to stop lowering yourself to the level of a child when speaking to an officer. I’m sure I do not have to remind you that you are on notice for such behavior.” Tia Windsor responded softly, the venom behind her words was very easy to pick up however.

“I’m fairly certain an Omorfian traitor like yourself should stop acting so aloof.” Yuzu Sato responded bitterly, though she could not bring herself to retort her companion. She, sadly, was correct about Yuzu’s current predicament. “What brings you out here anyway?” Yuzu asked as she sat down in a metal chair that was less than a foot to her left, sighing in relief as she did so. “It’s not common for you to observe troop training, especially with all the work you get burdened with.”

Tia smiled as she pulled up a chair alongside Yuzu. She sat as elegantly as she looked, crossing her legs daintily and clasping her hands together in a relaxed manner. “It is only 7:30am Yuzu. Not even I will start working this early.” Tia’s eyes hardened as she spoke, the smile slowly disappearing from her face. “Why you felt it necessary to train my troops however is a much larger concern to me. More so than some paperwork and marriage proposals.” The last statement was followed by a hollow laugh.

Yuzu merely waved her hand dismissively at Tia, before responding rather brazenly. “Bah, I’m doing you a favour.” Tia looked slightly confused at her statement. “Last time I was in your office, I saw a report on your desk. In fact…” Yuzu began reaching inside her black jacket before grabbing a bound bunch of papers and tossing them lightly at Tia. They were slightly wet due to the rain. “That report to be specific. This squad has been noted by Brigadier Mordred to be rather disobedient and underperforming in the field. I decided to give them a bit of a rough workout and short them on meals for today. Next time, I’ll follow the Law to the letter.” She ran a finger across her throat to make a very clear point.

Tia sighed as she passed the documents back to Yuzu. “Well I ought to thank you for that, Yuzu. Maybe at the next Officer’s Night. Though I feel that maybe you should be more like this with your own squads. I hear Raven are getting disobedient again.”

Yuzu groaned. “Ugh, don’t remind me of that bunch of misfits. One squad turns the whole bunch bad. Problem is they get results, what do you do?” She asked rhetorically with a shrug. “That Andre really leads them astray but like his cousin, I can’t fault him tactically.”

“I have seen the files Yuzu, I’m very well aware of their accomplishments as a team however that is beside the point sadly.” Tia’s voice became stern. “You know how the other Generals are about disobedience. It will look bad on you and I if they step out of line and it fails. Hold them up to the same standard as Eagle or Hawk.”

“It won’t work with that lot. You know that as well as I do.” Yuzu turned her attention to the field, noticing three of the soldiers on the field had stopped to chat while the others still doggedly marched on with worried glances thrown at the three. “I’m assuming you’ve noticed?”

Tia stood up in unison with Yuzu. “Yes sadly. Call a halt and line them up in front of the building. I shall take it from there.”

Yuzu nodded and walked out into the rain. “HALT!!” The order was met immediately, all the soldiers, including the three at fault turned towards Yuzu. “Form up in front of General Windsor on the double and stand to attention!” They all moved as ordered with a definite air of urgency. None of them had realised that Tia was present.

As soon as the troops lined up, Tia’s eyes spotted the perpetrators at the far right of the group. She pointed them out and spoke with practiced authority. “All but you three, return inside for your breakfast. Due to reports from Brigadier Mordred you shall be served basic rations for the next two weeks due to your repeated insubordination. You are lucky myself and General Sato are feeling generous.” The soldiers made to move before Tia raised her voice harshly. “If however I hear of any more obedience issues from this squad, I will follow the letter of the law and you will all face a firing squad, do I make myself clear?!” She was met with a loud chorus of “Yes Ma’am” before she allowed them to pass. They all eagerly passed both Generals, happy to leave their comrades to their fate.

Tia turned to the soldiers who were left behind. All three were shaking from the cold as well as in trepidation for what was to come. She paced in front of them for what seemed like hours until she stopped and spoke. Her voice icily calm. “What were you doing?”

The soldiers all swallowed, but refrained from speaking. Tia repeated her question with more projection on each word. “What. Were. You. Doing?”

One of the soldiers broke the silence they maintained. “We were following General Sato’s ord...argh!” His hand clasped his ear, blood flowing clearly from the side of his head as he looked at Tia; aghast. Her sword was drawn and blood was clearly glistening on the blade.

“DO NOT LIE TO MY FACE SOLDIER!” She shouted angrily, her beautiful face contorted in anger. “DO YOU TAKE ME FOR AN IDIOT?!”

“No not at all…” The soldier cried.

“DO YOU TAKE GENERAL SATO TO BE AN IDIOT?!” She asked just as angrily as before, closing the distance between herself and the soldier who backed away fearfully.

“No not at all General…” He was yet again interrupted but this time by Tia’s sword working its way along his front. “ARGH!!” Blood flowed from the long slash across his body.

“SO NOT ONLY ARE YOU INSUBORDINATE, YOU ARE DISHONEST AS WELL?!” Tia screamed, she slashed the soldier’s knees in quick succession, bringing him to his knees, the bloody mixing with the mud that splashed around him. Her face calmed as she looked down at him in contempt. “I have no need of soldiers who I cannot trust.” His face was frozen in horror as she took his head there and then, faster than he or his associates could process. Tia flicked the blood from her sword before nodding to Yuzu as she walked back to the building.

Yuzu turned to the men quickly, firing four rounds from a pistol she drew from her hip holster. Two to the soldiers’ heads and two to their chests. The gunshots echoed around the complex, however, the commonplace sound drew no more attention. Yuzu replaced the gun in its home before following Tia back inside. She drew a phone from her jacket and after punching a short number spoke into the mouthpiece. “Three bodies need extracting from Training Ground Delta. Dishonorable conduct. Execution performed by General Yuzu Sato and General Tia Windsor. Thank you.” She ended the call there and then, a slightly smug grin on her face. “Nothing like a good bit of bloodshed before breakfast.”


In a completely different part of Exercitus, things were much calmer (Which in the larger scheme of things in Exercitus was actually quite abnormal). The location of said abnormalness was the Central Headquarters, the home of many of the officers throughout Exercitus.

Within this building, many of the “Live in” Generals were sat around a lengthy table that was creaking under the weight of charts, reports and plans. Mealtimes were a very bland affair in Exercitus, even the Officers ate the same food as their subordinates. Each meal usually consisted of rice, some form of meat, beans and vegetables as well as soup and a drink of choice, typically either tea or water. Meals were to many Exercitus soldiers only fuel to keep them going. In this case the Generals and few Brigadiers that were respected enough to join in the discussions were present.

At the head of the table Jericho Hilias ate with one hand whilst simultaneously looking over a report in the other, stopping only to flick pages. A noticeable twitch he had developed from years of military service shook both fork and page in a rustle barely above the noise of forks and spoons hitting plates.

Jericho looked over the rims of a pair of black rimmed spectacles, dented with age, at another man further down the table. The man in question was middle aged but had an air of youthful exuberance about him. “Is this report accurate, Ricardo?” Jericho asked the man, placing the report in question on the table, next to a couple of maps, haphazardly sprawled out on the table.

Ricardo Vila smiled as he seemed to do almost permanently. He quickly swallowed a mouthful of rice before he answered. “It’s the most recent one I have to hand at this time Sir. The information was corroborated between the Air Force scout aircraft, the Assassination Division infiltrators and the Raven Special Division’s scout regiment and cyber intelligence. I took all the information that was presented and compared it, removing any inconsistencies and interpreted the information onto the maps in front of you.” He paused to take another mouthful of food and quickly wolfed it down before continuing. “So in essence Sir; this is the best we can have at this time.”

Jericho chuckled softly as he glanced at the report again. “Good work Ricardo. I hope you have also thought about possible next steps?” He asked, knowing the answer he would receive.

“Yes Sir. I have about four proposals that could work…” He took a breath before wiping the smile off his face. “Sadly the best option has a survival rate for our scouting regiment of about 48.4%.” Most of clatter around them stopped at this moment.

A woman who was directly opposite Ricardo snorted coldly. Her medium length blue hair, billowed with the noise almost emphasising its effect. “I’m sorry, 48%? Surely you must be joking Ricardo?” She laughed almost mockingly if it were possible. “If that’s the best you can come up with, why bother doing anything?” She folded her arms loosely.

Another woman slightly further down the table sighed. “Oh here we go again.” The comment did not go unnoticed by the other woman.

“Brigadier Kurotsuki, I’d recommend you keep your thoughts to yourself,” She said, licking the knife she had been eating with all the while keeping her eyes locked with the Brigadier. “Otherwise you may find that you won’t be having thoughts anymore.”

“With all due respect General Nicrosa, if you tried I would burn you to ashes!” As if to enhance her point, a rather bright flame appeared in Brigadier Mikasuki Kurotsuki’s left hand.

“THAT’S ENOUGH!” Another woman who was sat directly next to Jericho shouted above the two women. Her purple hair punctuated with grey streaks being one of the few features actually managing to denote her age. Any noise stopped immediately at the sound of her voice, such was the respect she commanded, while Mikasuki quickly snuffed out the flame in her hand. The woman quickly slipped back into a softer voice as she continued. “Not only are we trying to enjoy a quiet and relaxed meal but we are also trying to go over important information concerning Dreamer movements. Now is not the time for two higher ranking officers to be acting like children and disturbing my peace.” She looked at the two with a look of sheer animalistic superiority. “Unless you two feel up to fighting me, since you seem so energetic.” She giggled as the two both bowed their heads and began shoveling food in their mouths.

Jericho leaned over to his wife and placed a gentle hand on her shoulder. “At you age, Iyashi, I wouldn’t strain yourself.” He turned back to Ricardo who was just finishing up the plate of food in front of him. “What is this plan of yours Ricardo?”

Ricardo again hastily swallowed before he stood up and moved towards a chart on the far wall. The chart itself was detailed at the edges but then appears near empty in the middle. Ricardo began what seemed to be a rather short explanation for what would be a rather dangerous plan. “The Dreamer’s movements on that damned floating isle seem to be centralised around this area.” Ricardo pulled a pen from his right pocket and marked a large area on the empty middle of the map, but the location of the area outlined was definitely too specific to be a guess. “The location I marked is the most likely area where the Dreamers are located. I say most likely because, I cannot be 100% sure without seeing it for myself. However from the troop movements that our scouts managed to acquire, the all seem to be heading from this particular zone.” He paused a minute to allow the other officers to process the information.

“The issue is, for us to launch any form of actual offensive against the Dreamers, we will need to be sure about the location. Which is where my plan comes in.” Ricardo sighed. “Yuzu is gonna hate me for suggesting this.”

“You’re not planning what I think you are, are you?” Said the last officer present at this time. Her scarlet hair was her most striking feature, along with a large scar across her left eye.

“Yes Mordred, I am.” Ricardo then marked three locations on the map. “At these three locations, I recommend we airdrop three small units worth of troops at varying locations on the outskirts of that island. We can’t get any closer than this from the air since our planes get blasted the moment they enter any space beyond the marked locations.”

Jericho clasped his hands together. “So for all intents and purposes, you plan on leaving my men on that island to locate the Dreamer stronghold?” Jericho leant back in his chair with his eyes closed. “I do not like this at all, Ricardo. We will lose too many troops to this plan.”

“Which is precisely why I want to keep the unit sizes small. Five soldiers per squad should solve it. The less men we send, the less chance they have of being discovered. On top of that, I will be implementing a time delay on the drops. This way they can’t get caught out all at once. I will admit however that no matter what we try Sir. Troops will die.” Ricardo said this hard eyed. His tone was completely serious.

Jericho opened his eyes and nodded. “I trust you explicitly, as I do the rest of my officers.” All the officers saluted from their respective positions, pulling their left hand in a clasped fist over their hearts and bowing their heads. “We will proceed with this operation, codename ‘Notitia’. You are all dismissed.”

Each officer stood and made to leave. Ricardo however grabbed the arm of Kara before she had the chance to get through the doorway.

She looked at him darkly. “What are you-”

“Sir, I have one more strategy that I can put into play...however it will require General Nicrosa and General Hilias to make it work.” Ricardo proclaimed.

Jericho leaned forward on the table, a large grin on his face. “Well this is exciting Ricardo. I wonder why you need my daughter for this one?” He laughed uproariously. “Hahaha, oh it has been a while since we’ve had so much go on. Come now, regale me with this plan of yours.”

Ricardo returned the grin. “Well let’s just say the previous operation...is just a smoke screen.”
