FALL OF THE ARANDA ASTROLOGISTICAL CENTER
For an army of limited numbers, such as the Nomad Military Force, simultaneously engaging in multiple combat zones reduces the forces deployed to each zone exponentially. To avoid being outnumbered, the Nomads distribute their units with consideration for the opposition expected in each location. The wide dispersion of the Nomad forces throughout the Flamia island territory had the obvious consequence of leaving its rearguard and headquarters—a place considered safe—insufficiently protected. The Nomad Military Force did not have enough units in the field to have more than a small garrison force to protect the Aranda Astrologistical Center. It seems the Combined Army intelligence service, probably through the covert activity of Shasvastii operatives, was aware of this fact. The alien forces launched a strong airborne offensive against the Astrological Center, which nearly drove out the scarce Nomad security team, and established a beachhead in the area.
The Aranda Center is a location of interest, as it provides the Combined Army with a safe and versatile insertion point against to the rearguard of our forces. It is vital to recover control of this location as soon as possible to stabilize the Flamia frontline as a starting point for the expulsion of the Combined Army forces from the island.

AND SO IT BEGINS… THE BEGINNING OF THE END…
As we reach the half way point of this campaign, word is reaching us of significant movements of Combined Army forces towards and around Paradiso.
Expect more theatres of operations to open up as Combined Army Make their push deeper into Flamia Island. As more of the Island falls opens up which faction is going to have the resource and discipline to capture those all important Theatres?
Perhaps alliances will be the key… expect more on those soon
In the mean time Aranda is there for the taking!
