Slippery When Wet
On 2 September 3039 elements of McCarron's Armored Cavalry land on Kathil for a raid, but the defenders of the 8th Syrtis Fusiliers are ready and waiting and force the attackers back. Colonel Marcus Barton orders numerous smaller objective raids as his forces pull out, including an smash-and-grab raid against warehouses in a city on 9 September.
A track for the campaign system in Starterbook: Sword and Dragon, this track depicts a raid by pirates from Antallos against food warehouses on Enif in 3042, during a time when the defending Sorenson's Sabres were considered a shamed and dishonored unit. Their handy defeat of the pirate forces, thus saving several cities from starvation, was a much-needed success.
