FJ Landing At Eben Emael

Bastian veteran stands on the training field with his 'Polish submachinegun' (the BAR knockoff) in hand. "Alright, here it is. At ease, at ease," he adds, "there aren't any Field-grade officers around. Yeah…" he looks around, eying the battery to the south. "Our AOR is the section you see here inside the yellow tape. Objective 1 is to silence those guns before they can be turned on the other drop zones. The other teams will be silencing theirs to cover us."

Goethe is a fresh face, newly out of training. He stands upright and attentive, listening to the veteran explain the mission.

Sankt is here! Neer fear! The man who might go up in a mushroom cloud if he tries a trampoline, he is watching Bastian quietly. He too, is a new face, though it seems he might have entured out a time or two perhaps.

Schneider listens a bit carefully, shrugging a bit at what's being said. The man from the Saarland looks a little bit thoughtful, moving one hand over to his ear, a bit absently. He looks like he's been out a few times, or something.

Bastian say "There are three batteries — two eight-inchers, one sixteen. Where's my demo man?" He waits for the soldier to pipe up, then nods. "Alright. Objective two is to secure this area." He points to the concrete bunker doors that lead below. "There are barracks and an armory down there to the south, and a radio room to the north. We should probably take out that radio as soon as the guns are down, lest they call in reinforcements. Any questions?""

Goethe shakes his head very slightly, the whole thing is new to the young fallschirmjager. Lips remain closed, listening carefully and looking to each veteran who speaks.

Demo? Sankt's on that like whoa. He pipes up accordingly, "Sir." A hand is slightly raised. Then he eyes the bunker doors. Oh goody. Oh joy. His eyes cross a little. Hrrm. Ok. Stuff needs to be blown up. Or at least eliminated. But really, the fireball's half the fun. Duly noted.

Adler also raises his hand at questions about Demolitions. He still has all his fingers so he must not have been at it very long though.

Schneider looks a bit more thoughtful as he listens, shrugging a little bit. "They will probably start calling in the reinforcements as soon as they hear the guns being blown up," he remarks, a bit absently. "So it would probably be more a case of getting the radio stopped before they'e overcome us completely…"

Bastian suddenly shoulders his Browning and fires a burst into the air. "move DAMMIT move!!" he shouts, kicking at the Paras as he withdraws a stopwatch. "What the hell are you waiting for goddammit?! Plant those charges! You! You!" He points to Goethe and Schneider, then Jorgen. "What're your jobs? What are you supposed to be doing?!"

"Proiding cover fire and moral support," comes the reply from Schneider as he looks over at the others.

Goethe blinks and straightens, looking over to Schneider and then back to Bastian, "Herr Unteroffizier, I am support as well." He slides his small personal first aid kit around, adjusting the MP40 slung over his shoulder.

Grass

Bastian points Schneider and Goethe to the south. "Get covering, or else Jaeger Sankt is going to be a casualty. If you didn't bring your rifle, make the right noises. Bang for rifles, bangbangbang for machinepistols, and pop for Lugers. Call your grenades too," he adds, and then grinning informs: "You're taking fire, GO! Fallschirmjaegers are ready in an instant!"

Goethe lurches forward to duck down behind a mound of earth, pointing his submachinegun and calling out BANG BANG BANG! as he points it towards the wooden structure made to stand in for the fortress.

Schneider grins, and lets out the bang sounds as he makes his way where instructed.

Bastian points Schneider and Goethe to the south. "Get covering, or else Jaeger Sankt is going to be a casualty. If you didn't bring your rifle, make the right noises. Bang for rifles, bangbangbang for machinepistols, and pop for Lugers. Call your grenades too," he adds, and then grinning informs: "You're taking fire, GO! Fallschirmjaegers are ready in an instant!"(re for Jorgen, sorry I didn't mention you by name)

Bastian takes a deep breath, looking up into the sky. For the tenth time that day, he's intimidated. He looks back on his life, trying to figure out the exact instant that set him on the road to jumping out of perfectly good airplanes, or riding in one-way-ticket gliders. Idly he reaches down to his ringfinger, spinning the wedding band there. "Why don't I hear those guns blowing up yet?" he calls out, heckling the troops. "You need to move with a sense of urgency, people!"

"Sir, what noise for a submachine gun?" Sankt grins as he follows along. "Just in case…" He pauses. And looks around, now where is his stuff. He's going though! Poor Bastian. Or is it poor gaggle of Paratroopers?

"Somebody who was listening answer that!" Unterfeldwebel Bastian Hertz calls out, but he's grinning now. His Jaegers are moving, he can see the war-oil coating them as they become less human and more machine.

END OF EXERCISE

«Game» The enemy is near… Eben Emael Interior is now a war zone!

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Goethe looks over to the side, watching the dim squares of the summer Belgian countryside below.

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Bastian snaps out of his reerie. "Alright, this is the real thing! Check your partner's gear!" He does so, looking over Schneider.

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Klaus sees the border quietly go by below. Its so peaceful in a glider. The sun is just coming up, and it looks to be a glorious summer day coming up.

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Goethe turns to check Sankt's gear, nodding as the demo charge seems strapped tight to carry on the man's back.

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Looking out for a few moments, Schneider smiles a little. "Quite nice," he says, to himself, before he hears Bastian and nods, moving to do as instructed. "Looks good," he says.

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Sankt is also looking over the side, but as Bastian yells, Sankt snaps to. He's probably working out schematics in his head, and looks over Goethe in turn. Rifle, and … there. "Seems fine."

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Klaus glances briefly over at the map. Its a bit unnering flying so fast with the ground so low below. "We're coming up on the target now, sir." he offers to Bastian. "Fie miles.".

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Jorgen slaps a fresh clip into his smg, locked n' loaded, a round is chambered as the young fellow prepares for what looks to be his first foray into the line of fire

Adler looks like he's going to throw up. Yes, the boy is scared.

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Goethe doesn't carry a rifle, he's a paratrooper. A good short submachine gun along with grenades on his belt. "Good to go." nodding to Sankt.

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Klaus reaches out to play with some controls, and the glider shifts slightly, as he gets it lined up for the Final Approach.

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Klaus blinks as the flat topped fortress suddenly hoes into iew. "I hope we don't end up going off the far end…" he mutters, the thing approaching real fast. "Brace yourseles!"

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) "Hear that? five minutes. If you gotta piss…" He ges Schneider's helmet a good-natured rap, then raises his oice. "Pilot! If your legs aren't crushed on landing, we'll need you to help move these damn charges."

(From (#15284) DFS 230 Glider) Jorgen checks his helmet and his spare mags, snaps his knife in place and stands at the ready to disembark… "Ready!"

«Aircraft» DFS 230 Glider lands at Fort Eben Emael!

(From DFS 230 Glider) Bastian screams, bolting for the door like a madman.

Bastian shouts, "move move move DON'T WAIT FOR IT TO STOP!!".

«Aircraft» Bastian gets out of DFS 230 Glider.

«Aircraft» Jorgen gets out of DFS 230 Glider.

(From DFS 230 Glider) Klaus guides the glider down onto the grassy hill-which is a fortress, and then suddenly the thing skids around as it touches earth. The glider comes to a swift stop, designed as its supposed to do. "Eerybody out!"

(From DFS 230 Glider) "Then make sure you do it on the enemy," Schneider replies with a bit of a grin, before he heads to the door as well, very fast.

«Aircraft» Schneider gets out of DFS 230 Glider.

(From DFS 230 Glider) Goethe holds onto the rope tight as the glides slides, bumping on the ground till it comes to a stop. "Ready!" as he steps to press forward behind the two in front of him.

«Aircraft» Adler gets out of DFS 230 Glider.

«Aircraft» Goethe gets out of DFS 230 Glider.

(From DFS 230 Glider) Sankt totally knew that. Sankt nods, "Thank you." Well, Goethe's submachine gun seems in line too. He gies a thumbs up, and shifts his weight, preparing to get going. At the talk of using the bathroom, Sankt just lifts an eyebrow. Weird. Whateer he thinks, he's heading to take his turn to hop out. He hangs onto his helmet and the rope, each with one hand. Swift stops are not Sankt's faorites.

«Aircraft» Sankt gets out of DFS 230 Glider.

Bastian trips getting out of the glider, stumbling but recovering himself. "Go go go!" he shouts, standing just outside the door and pushing the troops out of the flimsy aircraft. "Get those charges, go!" He's jacked up better than any Peritin rush… not that he doesn't have one of those, too, mind you.

Schneider moves to keep his attention on the south, frowning a little bit. "Area'll probably swarm with enemies as soon as they hear the sounds of explosions," he mutters, to himself, pausing as he hears Jorgen.

Goethe has his submachinegun now in hand, held ready to fire as he balances himself after hopping out the open hatch of the glider. "One bunker seen here!" he calls out, readied to run with the group.

«Ground Combat» You notice Pierre arrive at Grass.

«Ground Combat» Goethe fires his MP40 at Pierre but misses!

Goethe calls over, "Which way, Unteroffizier?"

«Ground Combat» Pierre has been mortally wounded!

Bastian scans around, helping Sankt get out of the plane. "South! South dammit, blow the guns!" Hearing the rifle fire, he brings up his weapon and rips a burst into the bunker.

ZZZZZ FWIT "SHIT!" Jorgen yelps as his off hand is clipped by a rifle round. "Dirty bastard…" His weapon is flipped into full auto mode… just intime for Pierre to get mown down.

Goethe calls over, "Can't go in from here." Spotting the demo guy move on, he runs in that direction too.

Pierre falls back from his gunslit as a hail of bullets come in through it. Theres a splash of blood, and down he goes. And no, the bunker slits are not big enough for people to swarm through.

«Ground Combat» Jorgen moves South <S>.

«Ground Combat» You notice Jorgen arrive at Grass.

Schneider puts the knife back as he sees the Belgian go down, starting to move south.

Adler just flips the fuck out and brings his MP40 off. Closing his yees, the young man fires a spray of bullets through a hole in the rebout. "Did I get him?" he asks, his oice cracking.

«Ground Combat» Goethe moves South <S>.

«Ground Combat» Schneider moves South <S>.

«Ground Combat» Adler moves South <S>.

Bastian scans around overtop the bucking Polish Submachinegun. "East clear!"

«Ground Combat» Klaus moves South <S>.

«Ground Combat» Bastian moves South <S>.

«Equipment» Klaus has dropped Luftwaffe Demo Charge.

Klaus drops the charge, and then heads off back north to the glider. "I'll bring them down.".

"Looks clear, so far," Schneider offers, with a bit of a frown.

«Ground Combat» Sankt moves to engage 8 Inch Battery in close quarters combat, and succeeds!

Bastian backpedals, moving down with the squad. He manages to NOT scream out what's directly on his mind: Holy shit, we're really doing it.

Goethe looks around. "I don't see any defenders here." quickly, holding his SMG at the ready.

When the pilot drops the big charge, Adler goes to pick it up. After all, he's had training!

"Clear east," Jorgen barks, ready for another onslaught of frenchmen.

«Ground Combat» Klaus moves North <N>.

Call him lazy, half-spaced out. But Sankt is a remarkably focused fellow when he's on task. He's up near the battery.

«Ground Combat» Sankt fires his Luftwaffe Demo Charge at 8 Inch Battery but misses!

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Demolitions from Grass (0 0)!

«Game» Adler assists Sankt!

Goethe ducks as the blast goes off, but as he lifts his head he finds the gun position still intact.

Schneider looks to the east once more, frowning a bit as he keeps watch.

Bastian points to Jorgen. "You're security here! Eeryone else, back to the glider!" With that, he hurries back the way he'd came. Haing trained with him, you men would know that's a suggestion that can change with your own judgements of the situation.

«Ground Combat» Bastian moves North <N>.

Klaus is working on lugging the next one south.

«Ground Combat» You notice Goethe arrive at Grass.

Goethe runs back north, following Bastian and his order.

Bastian comes sprinting up, breathing heaily. "Go! Go! Go!" He keeps repeating it een as he grabs the other end of the demo charge Klaus is working on — a mantra more than an order.

«Ground Combat» You notice Schneider arrive at Grass.

Klaus is on it. He's dragging the thing. But its weighs a ton. Figuratively.

«Ground Combat» You notice Adler arrive at Grass.

Klaus adds, "I'm on it, sir", breathlessly.

Goethe turns to try to look around, weapon readied.

«Ground Combat» Goethe fires his MP40 at Frederic but misses!

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Submachine Guns from Grass (0 1)!

Frederic aims up on Goethe, as bullets come in, and mostly bounce off the concrete. Flies crawling around on the outside of their fortress, time to burn em off.

Bastian growls, shuffling along with the pilot and the demo charge. "Take him out!"

«Ground Combat» Frederic fires his Berthier at Adler but misses!

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Grass (0 1)!

Goethe fires off a couple shots, but they both ping against the concrete while Adler's riddles the Belgian soldier.

"Perhaps?" He offers. "It's too much to hope this is the fortress of Deaf Belgiums," He remarks dryly. With that, Sankt takes the charges and heads off after Jorgen.

Jorgen has disconnected.

Bastian shuffles along with Klaus, glad when the charge is done moving. "Good work men, stay on top of it!" he shouts, handing the charge off to the engineers and hurrying back to the glider.

«Ground Combat» Klaus moves North <N>.

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Grass (0 2)!

Alain seems pretty timid too, a farmers son in an unfamiliar place. Soon as bullets come in and bounce off the concrete he puts his head down, and fires mostly blindly through the slit.

Schneider keeps up the hard work of bringing that explosie charge to the south, rather carefully.

«Ground Combat» Frederic reloads his Berthier!

Goethe stops shooting, trying to get close to the stone wall in cover as he does his best to take a look north.

Bastian rushes up to the concealment of the Dornier, changing magazines as he goes, trying to get a surprise angle on the northern bunker.

Klaus is still headed south… slow and steady while he's in charge, or something.

Alain pops up, sights his rifle on Adler, and sends off a round. As soon as he's fired he drops back down again, not having much faith in how much protection the bunker offers against aimed fire.

Goethe looks over his shoulder to Bastian, a quick nod, "Yes, Unteroffizier!" as he draws up his SMG and prepares to close the distance in a movement along the wall towards the north.

Klaus slowly draaaaaaaags.

Bastian sends a few supporting rounds north towards the harassing Alain, not that they know each other by name. Then it's back to reloading his pig. "How's it going down there?" he calls out to the approaching mule. Er, pilot.

We're all Luftwaffe here. "Not sure, the other charge I dragged down there the Jaegers have taken charge of, I imagine they are using it now." Klaus replies.

Goethe rushes north, his SMG held in his hands. Coming near the redoubt he tries to slide to a stop and duck.

«Ground Combat» Bastian reloads his Browning wz.1928!

Alright, Adler's just about had it. The boy can barely hold his rifle up now, and he curls down under cover, his body shaking.

Bastian shoes the barrel of his subgun into the bunker slit, but then reasons that if he can get this close, they're probably long gone. "What the hell's going on?" he asks, just as Schneider takes a shot to the chest.

Bastian shouts, "MEDIC!".

The Belges are gathered around the hatch down. They know where Fritz is gonna be going next, it seems.

Bastian drops to a knee, pouring rounds in the direction the deadly heartshot came from, and calls for help.

Goethe looks to where all the Belgians are clustered. One big bunker filled with guns pointed out the holes. "Damn" murmured." "I'm out of grenades. Use grenades."

Klaus know's he's not staying out here, and charges for the bunker door. It has a door, this one!

«Game» Adler moves into Redoubt.

Adler has left.

Adler heads off South.

Bastian guzzles water and pops a pill from a tube wrapper, the label still reading PER. "What's the situation like? I know we lost Schneider, the rifleman," he pants, eyeing the troopers as they come back for gear.

Sankt has arrived.

Goethe doesn't bandage the hand that well the first time. He tries again with a new wrap.

«Equipment» Sankt has dropped MP40.

«Equipment» Sankt has dropped 9mm Parabellum x 100.

«Medic Code» Goethe successfully performs first aid on Bastian!

Goethe nods to the Unteroffizier. "all patched up, sir." and looks around to the others. "Anyone else need a medic?"

Sankt meanders back, looking a little rattled, but overall well. He's quiet for the most part, though.

Schneider moves a bit more, before he starts getting to his feet a little, looking like hell, but alie. "I think I'll live," he offers.

Goethe gies another nod. "Looks like Death carrives the wounded now. All of them Belgian." and grins. He looks around for a moment, then pauses. "Where's …" and goes quiet a moment. "The guy that got hit. One of ours." as he turns to try to look northeast towards the corridor there."

Bastian gapes at Schneider, making the water from his canteen dribble down his chin. "Welcome back," he says shakily, taking in the man's bloodstained camo smock. "Take five, get some water and load up. I take it the guns were blown?"

«Game» Bastian moves out of Redoubt.

"Takes more to kill a person from the Saarland, my friend," Schneider offers, with a half-grin.

Goethe chuckles over with that. "We surprised them here. We got all the guns, I was told."

Schneider nods, "All of them gone," he replies, with a nod.

Engel has arrived.

Engel arrives from the North.

«Game» Engel moves out of Redoubt.

«Equipment» Engel has picked up Stielhandgranate.

Goethe nods, turning to look back at the fortress walls. "More of 'em are still holed up, I bet. We didn't get the radio room."

Engel sidles along the surface of the roof, pausing when he finds a place he can lean, and slipping a cigarette and lighter out of his pockets. He proceeds to smoke, languidly, an ear cocked to the war-like talk among his fellow paratroopers.

Bastian nods, turning his back on the men and struggling to open his smock enough to get to his fly, and then reliee himself. Water and stress and all that. "We haven't been shelled yet, so the other teams must be doing well too. I want three olunteers. Two to throw grenades into the hole, one to charge in with submachineguns. I'll come in with the other subgun. Eeryone else follow behind."

Goethe rubs his nose, "I'll toss a grenade, sir."

Engel takes a very long drag on his cigarette and blows it out slowly. As it to remind himself he's alie. Then, he raises an arm to olunteer. "What the hell?" he mutters to himself, before adding, "I'll toss as well."

Schneider nods in agreement with Goethe, "If you need another person to toss the grenades, I'll help as well."

Sankt is lingering now, a bit more active. He blinks, hearing the discussion on grenades. Oops. He doesn't know how to use a submachine gun. "It seems the grenades are taken, I can only use a shotgun and not a submachine gun, sir. But, there is a spare gun here," Sankt points to an MP 40.

Goethe grimaces, "I can shoot one." patting his own MP40, "But I didn't hit a thing today. But if you need me to, sir, I will go in with it."

"Right!" Bastian snaps, zipping back up. "Goethe, Engel, Schneider, and myself, on point. Sankt, keep your shotgun, I heard that thing myself and almost crapped my britches," he only half-jokes. Then, more seriously, "Grab a fresh canteen and let's move."

«Equipment» Engel has picked up Stielhandgranate.

Goethe nods and quietly steps to scamper away, fetching a clean full canteen. Neer trusting what sources of refreshment these Belgians have stowed away!

Schneider nods as he listens, readying himself to go for the grenade, moving to ready the great ball of destruction.

Goethe finds himself back down in the fortress with Adler when he returns, both of them with MP40 SMGs.

«Equipment» Sankt picks up Stielhandgranate.

Schneider gets ready for the assault, keeping the grenade close. "Ready, wheneer," he offers, quietly.

Goethe strains to wrap a bandage around Adler's most serious wound, stopping the bleeding for now.

Bastian comes stumbling up the corridor, throwing the emptied Polish weapon over his shoulder and pulling out a grenade. "You take care of things here," he mumbles to the soldiers in the hall, not stopping to notice who they are.

«Ground Combat» Adler fires his MP40 at Alain but misses!

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Submachine Guns from Eben Emael Corridors (1 3)!

Goethe nods briefly, "I gotta patch my leg." as he shifts his seating to use his Hitler Youth knife to slice the trouser leg and expose the wound.

"Good luck, and thank you," Adler stammers as he fires more lead northward.

«Ground Combat» Engel fires his Kar98k at Alain and hits!

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Strongpoint (1 4)!

«Ground Combat» *boom* Headshot!!!

Engel proceeds to shoot Alain in the head. Which'll do it, really.

Schneider keeps on bleeding. Seems like that's what he does best.

Pierre has left.

Bastian stumbles up the hall as fast as he can, clutching a grenade. That's not terribly fast, though, as a sucking chest wound is nature's way of telling you to slow down. "What's the situaton here?" he grunts.

«Ground Combat» Bastian moves into Strongpoint.

Engel leans back against the stone wall as Alain goes down, breathing hard. He raises a hand to run across his head, as if making sure it's still firmly attached. The Austrian man hasn't een receied a scratch yet. "Good to see you Unterfeldwebel," he says, with an attempt at a smirk. "I was getting rather lonely." But his smirk fails. "Schneider took a nasty hit. I…I'm not sure if he'll be…all right or not. I lost track of Goethe. I think he was hit as well."

«Ground Combat» Julien fires his Berthier at Engel and hits!

Engel suffers 1 wound damage to his right chest.

«Ground Combat» Bastian fires his Stielhandgranate at Michel but misses!

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Grenades from Strongpoint (1 4)!

Engel shakily starts to lower himself into a more fortified position. Too late! He's nicked by a shot in the chest, causing him to buckle. He is then *slammed* by another bullet, also striking his chest. That one gets him down, but not in the way he would have liked.

Bastian screams at the noises racking his ears, and desperately whips around, throwing his grenade skittering down the hall. He then ducks back into the strongpoint. "That's better," he grunts to Engel, distracted by reloading his Polish subgun.

Engel does not reply, having lost consciousness. Thankfully. That large hole in his chest isn't a pretty sight.

«Ground Combat» Michel reloads his Berthier!

«Ground Combat» Julien fires his Berthier at Bastian but misses!

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Command Post (0 4)!

"Now, I want you to throw a grenade and lay down some covering fire for me," Bastian tells the dying man as he wiggles a box magazine into place. "Then follow — hey," he snaps, "listen to me, Jaeger!" Then he notices the rapidly expanding pool of blood around Engel and slumps down shakily.

«Ground Combat» Bastian reloads his Browning wz.1928!

Michel suffers 5 wound damage to his left chest.

Michel suffers 4 wound damage to his left hand.

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Automatic Rifles from Strongpoint (1 4)!

«Ground Combat» Michel has been taken out!

Julien has had enough of this, and puts up hands as Michel is thrown across the wall by a hail of bullets, spraying blood and gore over the place like a Ripper victim.

Bastian quiers, his breath coming faster and faster as bullets whip around him. Finally almost hyperentilating, he pops up and pastes Michel dead on with several heavy rounds.

Werner adances from the room beyond where the wounded are still binding their wounds, keeping his head down and moving cautiously from corner to cover.

«Ground Combat» Bastian deploys his Browning wz.1928!

«Ground Combat» Werner moves into Strongpoint.

Bastian keeps his weapon pointed at Julien, though briefly interrupting his line of sight to properly brace the bipod against the strongpoint's firing port. "Put down weapon. Come, with hands in air!" His Belgian is atrocious, but sufficient.

Werner ducks into the strongpoint to join the other FJs. "How are you holding out?"

French. Belgies speak French.

Schneider stays down on the ground, still bleeding. He's unconscious, battling for his life in a nightmare world.

Bastian is speaking French, ha ha.

«Equipment» Julien has dropped Berthier.

«Equipment» Julien has dropped Mills Bomb.

«Ground Combat» Julien moves out of Desk.

«Ground Combat» You notice Goethe arrive at Strongpoint.

Werner props the barrel of his machine pistol on the strongpoint's shield and covers Julien as well, wary of any trickery.

Goethe limps into the room in a hurry, his left leg wrapped in bandages and unable to move easily.

Bastian sights in on the Belgian. His own breath is laboured, but the presence of more Jaegers gies him at least internal strength. "I'm fine here," he grunts, "but that Jaeger out there is in bad shape. Go get that medic and help him do what he can."

«Ground Combat» You notice Adler arrive at Strongpoint.

«Ground Combat» You notice Julien arrive at Strongpoint.

Goethe limps and drags himself over to the fallen Schneider. "Belgian! Cover me!"

«Medic Code» Goethe attempts to stabilise Schneider but fails and Schneider expires…

Julien the Radio Operator tentatively adances on the Nazi scum, hands in the air.

Werner raises a hand and waes Goethe over to help the graely wounded Schneider. "I'll cover you, doctor."

Goethe frowns as the man before him dies, the wounds too harsh to stabilise. "We lost him." as he turns, dropping the first aid kit and lifting the MP40 to point towards the Belgian. "Actung!"

Julien has his hands up. Up! He reaches, almost touches the ceiling.

Schneider has left.

Bastian keeps his rifle bearing down in Julien. "Lay down," he orders, shifting his weight behind the Browning poingantly. "Hands on head, feet spread." His tone is flat, but breathy from exhaustion. "You are a prisoner of the Reich," he says in German now, mostly to his troops. "You will be treated fairly."

Julien lays down as instructed, and mutters some thanks to God that its not the Schutzstaffel.

Werner mutters a whispered prayer for poor old "Bad Luck Schneider."

Goethe scoots over to join the others here, trying to get inside the strongpoint. "We'd better get into cover, 'case others come."

«Game» Goethe moves into Strongpoint.

Sankt has arrived.

Engel has arrived.

«Game» Bastian moves out of Strongpoint.

Polophile, apparently, Bastian draws one of their pistols before setting down his rifle. He approaches Julien, shoing the barrel into the man's spine as he starts patting him down. "Do you speak German?" he asks gruffly.

Julien replies, in heavy accented German, "Some German, sir!" in a oice squeaky with fear, when he gets prodded with pistol barrels and things.

Engel stirs, groaning. He's still bleeding but that's slowed. He'll live to see another day.

Werner straightens up from behind the strongpoint and looks around warily. "That's a small kindness, at least."

Bastian gies Julien a reacharound!! Or so it looks. Actually he's undoing the man's belt, so he can use it as a restraint. "Good. How many more of you are there?" He asks, as if Julien is some all-knowing oracle.

Goethe looks over to the questioning of the prisoner for a moment, then back to those men with him in the stronghold.

Julien is the radio operator so he actually knows a fair bit. "All other artillerymen in this fortification have retreated." he offers. "They are fighting at the bridges, that is the last message.".

Bastian stands up, pistol still pointed at Adler. It's taken him a while to remove the belt that he holds out. "Somebody tie him up and watch him. I'll go erify what the man says…"

Goethe mutters, "He's a radio man. He knows the codes." with a look to Bastian.

Herzog has arrived.

Werner asides, "We should pass that on to command, about the bridges."

Goethe just nods to what Werner says, then quietly to the other men. "Anyone still bleeding? Last chance for me to try to patch you up."

Werner gets to work tying up Julien with some rappelling line, since that's what he's got. "Don't squirm."

Goethe looks over to Bastian again, seeing the man's chest has wounds unbandaged. Rising, the young man tries to limp over with the first aid kit.

Herzog comes up from down south, looking around for a few moments. "I'll help patching up people as well, if needed," the Austrian offers quietly.

Goethe looks then to Herzog. "I'm hurt pretty bad in my leg. Can't stay as steady." then motions over to the NCO, Bastian, "Patch up both sides of his chest, he needs it."

Bastian hands the belt to Werner. "You're right. How about it?" he asks the Belgian, "Care to shorten the suffering of your people?" He lifts his arms and such, making it as easy for whateer medic to treat him.

"Wh-what do you want, Sir?" Julien asks, a bit confused about what the jaeger is asking.

How odd,all this talk of unicode for mushes, and this is one of the few that might actually need it, and it doesn't have it. Hah.

«Medic Code» Herzog attempts first aid on Bastian but fails.

Herzog frowns a bit as the bandage to the right side seems to be quite bad. "Sorry I can't do more for that wound," he says, starting to work on the man's other wound, now.

«Game» Goethe moves out of Strongpoint.

Goethe tries to assist Herzog in applying first aid to Bastian's wounds.

"Radio codes, callsigns, dispositions," Bastian sighs irritably. "All those… things you're not supposed to tell us." He takes a deep breath, cocking back the hammer of his pistol. "All those things that would speed the ineitable onslaught of the Wehrmacht. Here, let me do the math," he quips, trying to keep his mind off the painful prodding of the medic. "Eery hour we are delayed… and I do mean delayed, een the entire Polish army couldn't stop us… we can safely say one family in ten will suffer a father, brother, or son killed in senseless battle. Think on it," he adds, hoping the Belgian understands enough of what was said.

Julien blinks at this, and points to the west. "Hae to use the codebooks, sir, but the captain ordered them burned just an hour ago. I don't really know where eerything is positioned. I don't think the captain een knew, he seemed quite confused.".

«Medic Code» Herzog successfully performs first aid on Bastian!

Bastian sighs, clicking the safety on his weapon and holstering it. "If you say so," he sighs wearily. "It's on your head, not mine," the man adds, reaching into a pocket to fish out his pack of cigarettes. "So… up to you how many lives your memory can save. Smoke?" One is offered to the medic, too, as well as the most pleasant smile he can muster at the moment.

Goethe looks Bastian over, "All we can do. Stopped the bleeding as best as we could." as the final bandage is applied. "You'll need the dok to take a look at your chest wound there."

Herzog gets back to work, trying to get the first aid done. "I might manage to do a little more about that other one," he offers, before he takes the offered smoke.

Werner finishes binding up Julien's wrists and heads over to rifle through the desk. "Nothing of use left then? I suppose they cleared the place as best they could when they saw us coming."

Julien makes up some bullshit to pad the fact, in the absence of alternatives. "Uh, the first rifle battalion is over by the rier, the second I heard was trying to support them… I heard some reports of gun crews abandoning their positions, and that many guns have been destroyed…"

Goethe groans a little, "Just send him back to Command. They can turn him over to the SS interrogators."

Bastian nods, reiewing what the man's told him. "Goethe, keep a watch on him. Let me know if he remembers anything. I'm going to radio command. Any of you Jaegers got experience with a set, I could use some help. The rest of you," he says, "go secure this compound." He takes a deep breath, starts to turn, but stops. "And men? Damn fine job. Neer been more proud of a man in my entire life. Beer's on me when we get back." With that, he shuffles off to the radio room.

Herzog shrugs a bit at Goethe, "We still need his information for our own security. Not like we could send anyone back the way we came."

Goethe shakes his head, "I'm not good with a radio." and lifts the SMG to keep it pointed at Julian. "Take a seat in the corner, facing the wall, hands up with palms against the wall."

Bastian tosses his pack over his shoulder. "Oh, give those to Frenchy-pie over there," he adds.

Werner shakes his head. "No radio training to speak of, here."

Werner salutes Bastian. "Thank you, sir. You too."

Herzog shakes his head at the radio stuff, "Likewise, sir," he offers with a nod.
