GREATEST GENERATION < < <


Coordinates : 7 7

The Castilian townships are small and scattered. Clusteres of several buildings compose the Villanueva that dot the countryside surrounding the town of Brunete itself. Cobbled stone roads, and red terra cotta roof tiles would make for lovely scenery in less violent times.

It is currently dawn.

Sub-Rooms :
1. Villanueva de la Canada
2. Aid Station

Having beaten back a push of Nationalist Armour and Infantry, K Company regroups, re-arms, and tends wounds. A brave few take the down time to complete the destruction of an abandoned fascist tank, while all prepare to face down a second fascist wave.

William holds the molotov and searches for a good place to toss the molotov in and tosses it.

Matti runs near, acting as a spotter for the panzer's fuel vents.

William stands around the frozen tank, looking for somewhere to toss it at.

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Grass (6 6)!

«Ground Combat» William fires his Molotov at PzKpfw 1 and hits!
«Ground Vehicles» William hits PzKpfw 1 (#9227) in the BACK!
Superficial Hit!

Lind is watching the scene south in the grass while chewing on her lip and cold-sweating from pain. But she has to keep watching, the adrenaline keeping her still very focused.

William frowns as he tries to toss it against the engine, but it does only external damage.

«Ground Combat» Roland reloads his Scoped Mosin-Nagant!

Vaclav shouts, "COMRADES! FALL BACK ON POSITION!".

Jase drags himself in from the west.. and oh does he look like hell. His clothing is torn, tattered and blood stained, one sleave torn completly off and tied around an old wound on his forehead. And it looks like he hasn't slept in a week.

Matti hurries back with a drum of ammo. He waves off the doctor, muttering, "Need to get Chauchat."

Jack looks at Jase, "You are one lucky SOB Comrad."

Matti arrives from the South.

Vaclav climbs up from his firing post, kicking at the pile of brass casings to scatter it, and stepping out of the building to gather more shots. "Comrades! Bullet count!"

Matti arrives back at the camp, bearing the Chauchat. He drops it in the equipment storehouse, muttering, "Allright. Got machinegun from dead man."

Lind gets out of the Aid station, rejoining the others. "I got 5 in the rifle, and 8 to spare," she explains, eyeing Vaclav with mixed emotions.

Jack speaks aloud to the group, "Do think they will regroup and his again, soon?"

William ran back in to regroup and gets tended to by an unnamed medical personnel.

"I… I don't even know," Jase starts to say as his adrenline finally leaves him and he passes the hell out in the middle of the road.

«Ground Combat» Herminio reloads his Mosin-Nagant!

Jack curses, "Medic!"

Matti makes his way away from the ammo dump, muttering to Vaclav. "5 in rifle, 20 in belt." He shakes his head sourly, fingering the hole in his tunic. As Lind moves to help him, he offers her a sullen, but not ungrateful smile.

Vaclav notes in turn to Jack, "Always be ready for more, comrade." Turning his narrow blue regard to Lind, and frowning, he drops a glance pointedly to the wound on the swede's chest, and rumbles, "Is bad, comrade."

Herminio is in the process of reloading when he sees a soldier hit the ground. With a barely muttered curse, he quickly trots out into the street to see about dragging Jase back under cover.

Jack nods at Herminio "Lets get him to the aid station" he says as he grabs one arm

Vaclav barks aloud, "All comrades without more bullets! Pick up mauser, use fascist shells! Re-arm!"

Lind is rather pale looking and it's sheer old Viking stubborness keeping her up. She wraps a bandage around Matti's hand without a word, a simple smile given to him before she looks over the rest, none of which she can help herself. Vaclav's words are met with a shake of her head and a rise of her chin. "Better than you," she insists. Then has to put a hand against a wall to lean, as she's lying through her teeth.

«Game» Jack moves into Aid Station.

Jack scans the room, "We have another one here!"

Jase doesn't appear to be seriously wounded, beyond a few scratchs and a rather fresh looking scar on his forehead.

Jack drops Jase onto a cot and gets out of the way.

Herminio hears the barked command and nearly answers, but instead helps Jack drag the unconscious form of Jase back under cover.

Matti stares at Lind, his brows drawing down in concern. Soon enough, his blue-grey eyes slide to Vaclav; he's obviously wondering how badly they've been hit. He apparently decides that it isn't his business, settling back to watch the south entry to the city. His hands are still shaking from combat stress.

«Game» Herminio moves into Villanueva de la Canada.

William grits his teeth as an unnamed doctor pulls the ricochet out of his chest and begins to patch him up. "No problem, Comrade. It is only a scratch," the doctor says. He looks at it and nods. So now the tally is: stitches on the right chest, small wound to the left chest, stitched up middle finger on the right hand, stitches on palm of the right hand, and two stitches on the palm of the left hand. He could be regarded as a Raggedy Ann now.

Vaclav draws a slow breath as he eyes Lind, at her words. His narrow blue eyes fix on the swede's, before rumbling quietly, "Medics seen you, yet?"

«Game» Jase changes his style to Stealth!

Herminio ducks back around the corner, doing what he can to keep himself together now that the shooting seems to have stopped. He has not, however, given up keeping his eyes south, furtive glances thrown that direction every couple of seconds as he reloads and prepares for the next wave.

«Game» Matti changes his style to Stealth!
«Game» Herminio changes his style to TakeCover!
«Game» Roland changes his style to Stealth!

A small boy runs down the street pushing a wheelbarrow full of Bomba Gasolina. He's only about 10 years old, maybe less. He yells out in a piercing voice in Spanish. "Comrades! I bring supplies on the order of your friends to the north!".

Lind opens up her old uniform jacket to show the bandage that Ubbe put there earlier. "I've been helped," she promises, her voice softening. "Why are you not in bed when you are wounded?" she asks of him instead.

The boy digs out two drum clips of Russian bullets for a DP27 as well.

Jack looks at William and holds up a bottle, "How use?"

Vaclav sniffs and rumbles in reply, "Bed no safer than here. Here at least, I can shoot back," the corporal states in wry french." Looking aside, he orders, "Medics! Start moving the wounded north!"

Jase doesnt get much medical attention. An aid worker looks Jase over and moves on to someone whose actully injuried. So for now the boy just sleeps.

«Game» Vaclav wields his DP 27!

Roland has a sharp wound came from a bullet at his head, he seems to be still shaking. He sighs and waits for medical care.

«Game» Matti moves into Villanueva de la Canada.

William shows Jack how to do the molotov. "Hold it, light it, then toss it."

Matti mutters to Vaclav, "Better get into cover and hiding again, right comrade corporal? The tank not see us earlier. It see comrade medic, though."

William nods at Jack. "Got it, Comrade? Shouldn't be too difficult. Be sure to use it for enemy armor; we have too little to go around for enemy infantry."

Vaclav stalks about, continuing to prepare for the next wave. "Comrades! Can any other use machine gun?" Pausing to look aside and answer Matti, "Yes, Comrade. If tank come, stay out of sight. Bring in close, then hit with petrol, as before. If infantry, open fire immediate."

«Game» Vaclav moves into Villanueva de la Canada.

Herminio looks at the molotov in confusion, his back against one of the exterior wall. "How will we kill them with bad wine?"

«Game» William moves into Villanueva de la Canada.

Jack grunts "Maybe we should make foxhole to south to guard aid station better?

Matti shakes his head, muttering, "Afraid not. Rifles, can lob grenades in more or less right direction." He looks down at the strong spirits, grimacing. Perhaps he's sorry at the waste of good alcohol.

Vaclav shakes his head to Jack's comment. "No. Move into foxhole south, and get flank shot. Stay here.. And-" he pauses eyeing the city to the west..

Jack speaks to the Corporal, "Want me to go west again?"

Vaclav raises his voice, after coughing once and spitting, "Engelbretson! Michaels! Morris! Move into town west!"

Matti stares south. He mutters to Vaclav. "Comrade corporal, grass is on fire in South. They maybe not attack directly from there. I not know."

Vaclav pauses, at noticing that Morris is gone. "Right. Dietrich! Move west with them!"

Roland nods his head and sneaks west

«Ground Combat» Jack moves out of Villanueva de la Canada.

Vaclav rumbles to the remaining soliders, "Comrades. We support them from here, cover if they need fall back, kill any fascists who come south, to use smoke for cover."

Vaclav lets out a slow breath, eyeing the burning south. "Comrades," he rumbles to the others, keep eyes west. Tell if enemy come into town." He settles in to deploy the russian machine gun.
Vaclav shouts, "INCOMING!".

«Ground Combat» William moves West <W>.

«Game» Herminio changes his style to TakeCover!

Herminio hears the incoming artillery and slams himself to the floor to protect himself from shrapnel

«Artillery» 75mm Light Artillery artillery barrage batters City ineffectually.

Matti winces as artillery pounds the square, gripping the barrel of his Mosin hard. He obviously isn't used to artillery barrages, and it shows.

Jase stirs a little bit when the shelling starts, but he's still mostly in la-la land.

Herminio grips his rifle as he scrambles up to lean against one of the walls, quietly counting down the timing between shots.

Vaclav by contrast, simply blinks once with each detonation; expression unchanged, and breathing remaining even. Checking and double checking the mechanism of his gun, he rumbles to Matti without looking, "Comrade. Use time to check gun, bullets."

«Artillery» 75mm Light Artillery artillery barrage rips through City to deadly effect, filling the air with lethal shrapnel!

Matti readies his rifle, shaking and cursing as the artillery barrage rains down. He raises his head as someone shouts the panzeralert from the West, but for the most part concentrates on keeping down where he is, resisting the urge to break cover and run like crazy away from the shellfire. Or rather, into the shellfire.

«Game» Vaclav tries to inspire the troops!

From City, a male voice shouts, "PANZER MOVING YOUR WAY!".

Vaclav mutters, "Tank to south of us."

(From PzKpfw 1) Eisen gives cover fire while the Nationalist infantry are cut down as they struggle their way into cover. Eisen seems to know what he's doing. Training for the Fuhrer, oh yes.

Vaclav coughs and growls, where he lies against the far wall, "Get. Hell. Out."

Xavier crawls between most of the wounded, trying to save as many of them as he can.. He's just waiting for everyone else, really.

It seems that if Jase survives his first wound, he'll live. But this time, as the last time he was hit, he just flat out dies, machine gun bullets tearing him up.

Jack tries to raise his gun again, but more bullets rip through him, as he falls over in a heap.

Matti looks around in desperation, shaking his head. "Someone help me carry corporal!" He puts aside his Mosin, moving to help carry Vaclav.

Herminio does the best he can to drag the corporal out of there, sheer survival fueling him.

Matti tries to carry Vaclav out of the building with Herminio, moving as low as he can to avoid drawing fire.

Julian ughs, wounded badly, he struggles to get the machinegun set up in a window with a decent view. So
he can assist in driving the Red scum out of this village once and for all.

Jack lifeless eyes stare blankly at the back of Julian's head.

Xavier shouts for Matti to hear, "What of the rest of them?" He frowns a bit, and moves to help take Vaclav anyway.."

Matti grunts as Herminio gets hit, taking on Vaclavs full weight on his shoulders. "PERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRKELE!" He tries to move forwards, half-carrying, half-dragging the czech.

(From PzKpfw 1) Eisen continues with his surprisingly accurate and lethal fire, mowing down the reds as they flee. Its good to be in a tank! And he laughs maniacally in the heat of battle.

«Ground Combat» Julian deploys his Chauchat!

Matti shakes his head silently at Xavier, "Run, doc. Can't help them. Save own skin."

Matti shakes his head, shouting, "RUN, DAMNIT! Perkele!"

(From PzKpfw 1) Eisen runs out of targets. He peers through the gunsight through corpse strewn streets, for signs of movement…

Castilian Plains

The Grid-----> > > > > THE GREATEST GENERATION < < <


Coordinates : 2 0

A flat plain of short grass stretches out around you, broken by the occasional bush or tree. It is rather exposed out here, the grass being too short to hide in, and cover too sparse to hide behind.

It is currently daytime.

Vaclav arrives from the Brunete.

Jase has arrived.
Jack has arrived.

Xavier had begun running as soon as Matti did, having intended to make him go first anyway. Unfortunately, Xavier isn't so smart as to -sneak-. He's taken down by machinegun fire.. Fortunately, he's able to crawl the rest of the way to relative safety, having been far enough away… Apparently.

Matti runs out of the combat zone like a fairly stealthy bat out of hell, keeping low to avoid the vehicle gunner's attention. Some distance from the fray he collapses, the slight man failing to bear the big czech's weight any longer. He gasps, fighting for breath, looking at Xavier, "You ok, doc? I think comrade corporal hit pretty bad."

Vaclav hits the ground with a grunt, planting one hand on the dry grass and levering his torso up to steal a look around. Simply breathing for a long moment, the corporal rumbles, "How.. many?"

William is being dragged by two surviving K Company comrades across the plains… somehow having escaped death but riddled with more ricochets.

Xavier pants heavily, collapsing forward himself,the grass becoming stained with blood from his various wounds. "No.." Pant. "I am not, ok."

Matti coughs, shaking his head. His arms are trembling, and grime and tears streak his reddish face. He flexes his jaws, squinting angrily back at Brunete for a while before muttering, "I not know. Position overrun… I see people going down everywhere. From our company, only you me and doc there make it out. You take it easy, comrade corporal." He scuttles over to Xavier at the other man's words, looking down helplessly. "I try to help you doc, but I not know what to do. If you tell me what to do, I try and tie wounds."

Jack 's seemingly lifeless form is dragged in, bullet holes cover his entire body, save his alreay disfigured face. Those dragging him simply drop him in a heap.

Vaclav draws himself up onto his knees, turning his head and spitting to clear the taste of blood. Planting first one, and then a second foot to the ground below, the corporal rises slowly, and half steadily to his feet, his thick legs untouched by gunfire. "Comrades.." Rasping, he coughs once, spitting again, before restating, "Comrades. Need. Keep moving."

William continues being dragged along by the two surviving unnamed K Company Comrades.

Jack lies unstirringly on the ground.

Matti glances at the corporal, nodding mutely. He bends down, picking Jack up now, and hoisting him over his shoulders in a fireman's grip. Despite, or perhaps because of his amazing luck, he seems really shaken up, badly affected by his first real battle. He looks at Vaclav with some admiration, what with being able to move with such wounds on him. "I carry 'Jack'." Without further chit-chat, he starts loping away from the hot zone.

Vaclav nods once, without breath or words to answer Matti with anything more than a frown. Muttering curt instruction to another of the solider, he hefts another of the wounded up, and between the two, bear their felled fellow northward toward safety. "No tanks behind," he rumbles.

Xavier sighs a bit.. "I'm not sure.. Only ever done it myself, dunno how to tell someone else to do that.." He groans a bit.. he could barely make it this far, how's he supposed to keep going??

William finally comes to. "Aye, I can walk alright, Comrades…" he says to the two pulling him. They gently let him down and rushes off. He stands up and follows the rest at a light jog.
