PC Briefing

Bless you, Disciple.

When the Cataclysm's winds of chaos howl in our faces we must stand firm. Protect our temple in Hong Kong from the Unguided storm which approaches the island.

The Nine have had a vision. The Unguided seek to undermine our plans for the Pacific Rim. A heretic, known to us as Ko-Paull Vissick, perverts our message. He subjects the Unguided rabble to a travesty of the eldritch knowledge revealed to us by the Nine. Such wilful recklessness can only harm the unprepared mind and, by this sedition, Vissick creates greater enmity towards our Church.

Now reports reach us of landings by large numbers of Unguided in Hong Kong. We believe they are heading for our temple. It falls to you and your Acolytes to reach the temple before the Unguided and defend against the inevitable onslaught.

Faithful servant, here is more. We will be gods. A machine promises to remake the world. Keep the faith and you buy your place of safety. All others will be lost.

The day of righteousness draws near.

Virgil

He who shouts loudest can only hear his own voice. Those with true knowledge listen to those with true faith. And those with closed ears never hear the swing of the reaper's blade.

Mission

Protect our temple in Hong Kong from the unguided threat.

Miniguns will be adequate, and since you can't upgrade, proceed straight to the mission.

Upon starting the mission, a bunch of Unguided will emerge from a nearby flats compound. Deal with them first, then head to the temples location. Deal with the Unguided as they're reaching the temple. There is also an armored vehicle with adversaries (RL + HE) to be dealt with.

One tactic to use is take out the two bridges to the temple with explosives. This should eliminate all the Unguided traversing them. When all punks have been dealt with, proceed to headquarters.

Debriefing

Unfortunately no income, but you should have researched the electron mace, and Brain level one.

After the triviality of the previous mission, you're in for a fight this time around.

Right at the start of the mission, a large group of Unguided armed with LR Rifles and Miniguns attack you. Don't just stand there - take out a couple with your own rifles, then activate supershields and run away. The Unguided will chase you and get strung out; when you've reloaded your LR Rifles, you can cut a couple more down, and then probably switch to whatever your primary close-combat weapon is and duke it out.

If you're taking heavy damage, run away again. The enemy is dangerous in groups, so you have to string them out.

Once they're dead, make your way to the temple, where Eurocorp are likely performing drive-by shootings and more Unguided are coming across the bridges. Neither are a major threat as they arrive in small groups; focus your fire on one at a time and kill them. Sections of both units are armed with high explosives, try to grab them before they go off.

Once you've killed all the hostiles, find a car (there's a taxi near where you started) and persuade the scientists in the compound opposite your temple. If you've played Eurocorp, you should know they're the only thing keeping it from exploding... oh well, sacrifices must be made in the name of The Nine.

Be sure to grab LR Rifles for any of your acolytes who need them before ending the mission.

Prophecy transcript

Resolution uncertainty: Very low

New research: none

New weapons: none

Possible loot: 2 Scientists, High Explosive

Move towards the Church, while fending off Unguided and shooting the cars with Adversaries. If you're properly modded, you should have no issues withstanding some of their firepower while moving.

Try to keep your guns hidden when near Police officers - they will shoot armed Unguided and Adversaries same as you, so may help you a little.

Some Unguded have High Explosive. If possible, it may be worth to pick up one or two, for use in later missions.

When the mssion is complete, don't forget to get a car to the Scientists and persuade them.

Tech ex machina

This time, persuading scientists will not cause any explosions.

You were blessed by this premonition from Hong-Kong episkopy, please do not reply.
