PLANETARY DETAILS:
Discovered shortly after the collapse of the Terran Alliance, Kikuyu was slowly colonized by refugees from New Zealand, Tasmania and the Australian continent. A desert world, the planet only has one continent named Queensland, with two large archipelagos named New Tasmania and Auckland. Queensland had similar qualities to the Terran continent of Australia, satisfying most of the colonists.

The center of the continent is a vast desert wasteland named the Great Victorian Desert. Beneath the reddish-tan soil lies the reason Kikuyu was colonized radioactive ores and rare metals. The southern coast of Queensland is the fertile basin of Jelto Ran Delta, where the planetary capital of New Sydney was established.

The archipelago islands were set up as nation states, thanks to the nationalism of the New Zealander and Tasmanian refugees. Auckland Archipelago was named in honor of a city located on the North Cape. Willington is the capital, located on the northern coast. New Tasmania, with its capital of New Hobart, is the smallest of the landmasses. It has also proven to be the toughest to settle, in part due to the appearance of Kikuyu's own version of the Tasmanian Devil. This sixty-kilogram carnivore proved to be even nastier than its Terran counterpart.

EMPLOYER SITUATION REPORT:
Per intel briefings from Wolfgang Roehmer, the Director of the Lyran Intelligence Corps, they have lost all contact with the Black Wolf Rangers Brigade, the 15th Lyran Regulars, and their attendant Naval support consisting of the Mjolnir-class LAS Urdarbrunnr and Dante-class LAS Constellation on Kikuyu. As you can image this has brought considerable alarm from the Province of Coventry’s Regional Command, most notably of whom is Sub-Commander, General Kommandant Alden Gray. The threat that all our forces in the Clermont Gap will be cut off looms very real. The nightmare rings true, the Jade Falcons have in fact overran Kikuyu. Gray has requested, and been approved, to send in a WarShip Task Force of no more than six WarShips slash JumpShips as the LAAF is not willing to risk their own Naval Assets in what appears to be a Jade Falcon sink hole.

The last reports the LIC had been able to decipher from Leutnant-General Jakande was that the Jade Falcons were moving their Cameron-class WarShip, dub the Turkina’s Pride, into near orbit with the threat of orbital bombardment. The Intelligence Corps believe that all transmissions have stopped due to Interdiction Operations being performed by the two Jade Falcons Aegis-class WarShips, the Frost Falcon and the Blue Talon, one at each JumpPoint.

While we do realize that we haven’t utilized your command in a very long time, much like a wayward offspring, but it hasn’t been due to a lack of want; its been more of a monetary issue. We simply could not afford you. But this is a perfect opportunity for the Restless Souls for three reasons. Number One; you get to face off against your tried and true nemesis Clan Jade Falcon. Number Two; you can rescue your Federated Suns brethren the Black Wolf Rangers and Number Three; you can pull the Lyran Alliance’s collective fat out of the fire.

What we need from your mercenary command is to divert the Jade Falcons ground forces into engaging your units to give our present occupying forces a respite. We need you to establish contact with the Black Wolf Rangers and get them off world if at all possible. You are to link up with and resupply Leutnant-General Amare Jakande 15th Lyran Regulars Command and let him know that reinforcements are in the works. You will be required to gain a beachhead into the Kikuyu System at either JumpPoint for our follow on forces. And for the love of God, country, and everything Holy, determine why the Jade Falcons are so interested in Kikuyu.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:
1) Contact and provide the BWR a way off of Kikuyu
2) Gain control of one of the JumpPoints

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:
1) Resupply the 15th Lyran Regulars
2) Gather Intel on the Jade Falcons intentions
