(NORTHFIELDS) – According to an Enforcer report leaked earlier today, an Enforcer fire squad from a powerful clan was on a routine smuggler pursuit mission, but ended up following themselves for a week.
The rise in faction combat in Sector Two has also seen a rise in demand for basic supplies for survival. Factions that are not involved in the heaviest fighting also are known to operate smuggling operations to help out allied factions.
The mentioned Enforcer fire squad was on assignment to track down two Vista weapon smugglers reported to be carrying a shipment estimated to be worth about 15 chips to their CHOTA allies. The Enforcers picked up the tracks of the Vistas on October the 5th and pursued them.
In an interview with one of the Vista smugglers known as A. Sigler (for security reasons) told WLN about the dangerous world of weapon smuggling,
“Yeah, a friend of mine from the CHOTA was at Thorne’s Bluff with us doing some traditional Vista peace pipe rituals. He left his pointy stick with a rusty nail here after he went home. Then the next day, two of us decided to walk over to the CHOTA camp and return it,” said A. Sigler about the dangerous weapon smuggling run.
“We had time to kill so we decided to go circle a large rock formation for a few hours admiring its natural beauty,” whispered Sigler. The vista smugglers decided to take a nap behind a rock by the road before reaching the CHOTA encampment.
“We had no idea we were being followed by Enforcers.”
The Enforcers unknowingly passed the two sleeping Vista citizens and kept following the old tracks circling the large rock formation. Reports from the Enforcer squad Sergeant reported that the number of smuggler footprints kept increasing every few hours. The Sergeant radioed Post 23 for reinforcements. The Enforcer squad kept unsuspectingly circling the large rock formations for the next few days in pursuit until the Squad captain called off the pursuit quoting, “This is suicide! We are following a group of now about 200 combatants, [expletive] this!”
The mission is estimated to have cost the enforcers about 20,000 chips in supplies. The Vista smugglers delivered their shipment and returned to Thorne’s Bluff the same day.
An Enforcer commanding officer could not be reached by WLN for comment.
“I’m just glad that Kroq got his pointy stick back,” said Sigler. “He killed his first Enforcer with it, it means a lot to him.”
