When War Is Fought Between a Rock and
a Hard Place
Between cannon volleys, you look around the deck of your
floatstone vessel. You remember stories of ancient battleships that waged war
in the waters of planet Earth in the 20th century. Only now, the mighty rock
fortresses float 6,000 feet off the surface of this remote planet -
magnetically repelled by the planet's core.
A blinding flash of light and heat snaps you back to
reality. Your opponent's long-range doom cannons have crippled your starboard
dragstone launcher and are pounding your defenses. Think...THINK! You've got to
figure out a plan to take out this juggernaut - before it does the same to
You start the repairs. You quickly commence building mode
and replace your arc projectors with creep mine racks and additional thrusters.
The improved speed helps you evade some of the blasts while you drop creep
mines in a circle around your enemy. He can't avoid them all, and slowly, your
foe's defenses are eaten away.
You're still taking heavy damage, but your well-armored
energy plant and added thrust jets spare you from the brunt of the attack. When
your enemy's last cannon erupts in flames, you move in for the kill. You
accelerate and ram your defenseless opponent. The collision topples your foe's
exposed command tower - a fatal blow. Seconds later, an explosion showers your
vessel with barbecued floatstone.
All remaining resources are quickly dedicated to replacing
lost battlements and repairing the extensive damage. Settling the nerves of
your crew is another matter...
