  • Magnusk: Disaraaskian, Vrylzesk's coordinates are leading us to an abandoned zone in North America. The Emperors seem to have built their base into ruins located in the Colorado Badlands. From where I am, I can see trenches, sniper nests, artillery emplacements, and a lot of aircraft. They've turned the entire city into a fortress. Fortunately, their attention seemed focused on the Hive and Red Legion Remnants in the area, so this may be our chance. I've found some suitable landing zones to establish a beachhead, but we'll have to drive back their current occupants. My team and I have placed a beacon on the outskirts. Meet us there.
