As many of you have undoubtedly noticed, No Refuge II hasn't been updated in a few months. It saddens me to say that the story will not be completed in it's entirety. Between my youtube account with all the music I needed being accidentally deleted, and just not having any time to work on it and restore all the music, I've decided it's time to call it quits. However, I will finish TELLING the story. If you remember back to when I started production, you may remember that I was going to take all the pictures needed for a specific location for the series as a whole before creating a new set. Because of this, I do have some chapters finished. As for the ones that aren't finished, I'll just summarize.
About this creation
The group quickly leaves the Heretic base as Cronus gives a final warning not to underestimate The Crown. Loch tries to radio back to HQ while they run back through the ruins, but can't get a signal. He climbs whats left of an old tower and manages to get a warning out to Jake and General Carson. He climbs down, and the group continues to head back to HQ.
Still on the run, the group is seen be a nearby Crown fighter drone, which opens fire. The group takes cover inside a destroyed building, trying to fight back. Finally, they create a diversion. Tye and Ashlin sneak out of the building and around the drone while Loch and Kira stay inside drawing it's fire. Ashlin tells Tye to shoot at the thruster rotating joints to take it down. They open fire and destroy the drone, then continue running back to HQ.
Loch: "General. We're here."
General Carson: "About time son. Give us a hand!"
Jake: "There better be a good reason we lost your signal."
Loch: "I'll explain later. How bad is it?"
General Carson: "Pretty bad. Full on strike force."
"There's a sniper in the back left building we're keeping surpressive fire on."
"And it looks like some royal guards are leading the attack."
Loch: "Alright. Four! Cover us while we move into position!"
Four: "You got it."
The group raced behind cover.
Jake: "New contact! Raven inbound!"
Another hardsuit dropped down from the Raven.
General Carson: "We need that thing down! Two, think you can take it?"
Two: "I doubt it! I think The Crown upgraded their hardsuits a bit!"
The new hardsuit began to fire on The Resistance.
Tye: "Watch it! Get down!"
Loch: "Frag out!"
Loch threw a grenade across the battlefield.
Suddenly, General Carson fell to the ground.
Number Three ran out of some ruins toward her wounded general.
Three: "No use Commander. He's gone."
Jake: "Fall back! Fall back to the courtyard!"
Ashlin opened the gate.
Jake: "Everbody in! Go go go!"
Everyone began running into the base.
Loch fired a few more rounds at The Crown.
The Crown continued to fire on the fleeing Resistance.
Troops began falling just outside the gates.
Four: "Close the gates! I'll buy you some time!"
The gates started closing.
Kira let out a yell then fell to the floor.
Tye: "Kira! NO!!"
Ashlin began to pull Kira out of the line of fire.
The Crown continued pressing forward.
Loch: "Everybody get inside!"
Everyone gathered in the main hub.
Tye and Ashlin walked in with Kira.
Loch: "It's over. We've lost... I'm sorry I didn't get here sooner."
Jake: "It's not your fault Loch. We didn't see this coming."
Hope you enjoyed it! There are going to be two more large chunks of the story, the last being the biggest. Feel free to speculate and leave feedback!
