The CO of the Mobile Fire send a communicate to the Bad Dream command, stating that most of his forces were sick from a local illness. The Regulars intercepted the message and gathered their forces to strike at the weakened invaders. When the Rasalhague Regulars advanced the abbandoned camp, the Mechs of Mobile Fire emerged from the nearby swamps.
