White Chalice. This is Alexei Soras. I have received a parcel from the League of Ruling Corporations. They have requested for all of you to watch it with me. Please stand by...
[The video blanks out for a couple of seconds, followed by a bright flash of blue light, and the League's symbol.]
This is the League of Ruling Corporations. We hope that our pilot's continued partnership with the White Chalice has been fruitful. However, due to the contractual obligations tied to the Reinheit and Wahrheit, we must request the following mission from all on the White Chalice. Omer Science will administer the briefing.
[The screen flashes white, and the League's symbol has been replaced by Omer Science's own]
I'll tell you about your mission. The client is Omer Science Technologies. The target is Bernard and Felix Foundation's main Arms Fort: Spirit of Motherwill.
[The screen flashes an image of the behemoth:
The enemy AF is armed with large bore, long range ordinance. It's an oversized, out-of-date machine, but the long-range punch it can deliver still makes it a serious threat.
To counter this, the client has proposed the use of a Vanguard Overd Boost to the Reinheit and Wahrheit. Their tremendous speed and large heat signatures should allow for the White Chalice to also move within range without too much trouble.
Once you've closed in, destroy the gun batteries. Destroying those guns should also cause damage to the machine's interior. It's...pretty poorly designed, but that kind of sloppy work is expected of them.
That's the briefing.
[Omer's symbol once again appears against the pure white background]
This is a very important mission for Omer Science Technologies... we hope you come through for us.
[The screen fades, replace again by the League's symbol]
Rest assured, White Chalice, this mission will not go unrewarded. The League is prepared to supply the Chalice with as much as you request, within reasonable bounds. Failure to comply with this mission will prompt the Reinheit and Wahrheit to disembark, and for the League to take measures against the Chalice. We hope to see you again soon.
[The video cuts off from there...]
[Alexei is standing in the hangar, looking up at the Wahrheit with some contempt.]
So... the League is finally playing their hand...
