Surprise Attack!

A Slipstream Scenario
It is a lovely day on the garden world of Theophilia, home of the mystical Sunstone and the Temple of the Maker. Visitors are wandering the gardens, drinking in the serenity of Theophilia. A group of Seers, the mystical priests of the Maker, are meditating in the gardens (upper left).

With a roar of engines, a fleet of rockets land in the garden. Out pops a horde of primals, the ape-like minions of the evil Queen Anathraxa. The are driven on by some Handmaidens, the Queen's elite warriors. One band of primals slaughters a group of visitors.

 Using their formidable psychic abilities, the Seers destroy a band of primals. Some visitors flee while others hide in the woods or in some of the gazebos situated throughout the gardens.

But seeing the advance of the bloodthirsty primals, the remaining visitors flee. The Queen's Handmaidens rush the Seers, but a psychic blast takes down some of the warriors.

The Handmaidens press on and overrun the Seers. However, the remaining visitors escape from the gardens.

It was a horrible sight - the peace and tranquility of Theophilia shattered by the Queen's invasion force. Some lives were lost - a group of visitors and a band of Seers perished in the assault. Fortunately, most of the visitors escaped.

Game Note:
This is the start of my Slipstream campaign using modified FU (Freeform Universal) rules. I will be posting some thoughts about the rules on my Warwell's Wargames blog (either tomorrow or later next week).
