ooc: keeping the rp going here for the moon as to not spam up lynneth's thread. While we seem to feel he's dead via Space HIV and civil war he's still probably going to be rping his own thing.


IC: The Legion Council quietly meets and begins discussing the future of Legion in this drastically changed environment. The moon had gone from the midst of a civil war to suddenly being a graveyard of badly damaged Solar Empire habitats and shattered buildings. Small recon teams are sent out to search for survivors and so far the reports are not coming back as favorable.

While Legion had the Moon covered and help was sent there the bulk of the Hellenic Space Forces focused on the space habitats, on most of them they would find to their surprise that the Lunars hadn't taken much better care of it than the Soviets of their military equipment around their fall. A few habitats were ruled habitable and thus integrated into the network but even those needed repairs approaching an amount more expensive than just constructing a new one. Others were simply no habitable anymore and needed to be salvaged for valuable materials. As their quest continued stuff kept looking dark. The Lunars had made a horrible mess of their assets.

The landing party from Freeside spent the better part of a day wandering through the empty city before returning to orbit. The whole time moon-side, they neither saw nor heard from a single living soul. The city was deserted: run down in some parts, never finished in others. With them as they left, they brought very little. A few keepsakes or souvenirs, a handful of items the 'techs' selected that would eventually find their way back to Manila, and the landing craft itself were pulled back aboard the relay vessel.

Before heading back to Freeside, the party examined two additional ships: a freighter, that like the landing craft and city was empty, and a warship left in a decaying orbit above the moon. Gone were the fancy weaponry and systems it boasted: no mass drivers, no lasers, no high tech missiles or point defense systems. Simply a ship. A large, crewless ship left adrift to the mercy of time and gravity. A short burn of the warship's thrusters ensured it would crash on isolated part of the moon and they left the remains of the Solar Empire to their fate.

[quote]Dispatch from the Empire of Tianxia to all other the Legion, Athens, and Selenarctos:

Tianxia proposes a summit for the equitable distribution of the the remnants of the Solar Empire. Our forces at the moment will remain fixed in Asian Lunar Territory, the Space Elevator, and our Island 2 Habitat, however, we believe that it would not be an exaggeration to say that the Solar Empire and its predecessors far overbuilt to the point where it would be difficult for any individual power to safely operate all their resources.

Tianxia would be interested in being given permission to take the lead on resources in Lagrange Point 2. We are willing to make the Space Elevator accessible at break even cost to all the powers here to secure these assets.[/quote]

"Thus far our survey teams are reporting that the majority of the Solly holdings near the MOOB are deserted and uncapable of supporting life at full occupancy. We do agree to your proposal though and will support Tianxia's operations through the provision of supplies and other support. Stop by the Moob anytime for a home cooked meal."

"Similarly, our own venture into Von Braun has yeilded few results. As Freeside resides at Lagrance Point 4, we will begin with the installations there and as Tianxia kindly offered their space elevator, we also offer access to our launch loop to meet launch schedules if you would like to use it."
