The Raix Effect: Chapter 5

After a lengthy debate, an alliance has been signed with the Tej-Sheel. Not to be outdone, the Tej-Brask quickly form a pact of their own: with the Crimson Blades. With the {Your Race} fleet behind them, the Tej-Sheel propose an offensive against the Garathon system... to go after one of the Tej-Brask's isolated raix supplies.

Daily Mission Briefing

My leaders have given word that an alliance has been signed. I am pleased. With your help, we can end this war, and rid the Tejiar of our raix dependence. As you may have heard, the Tej-Brask have signed an alliance of their own. There is much to do.

Mission Dialogue:

Krydul: Let's get to work.
Tell me, how many other raix weapons does the Tej-Sheel have in stock?

Krydul: Commander, I know you are eager, but our relationship is still quite fresh. Trust will take time, and we prefer to keep certain details about our strategic plans... secret, for now.
Krydul, if you want to end this war, we both need to be in sync about these plans.

Krydul: As I said, in time.
I'm afraid neither of us has the luxury of time. The Tej-Brask have already secured an alliance with The Crimson Blades.

Krydul: Alright... alright. I'll tell you this. We are working on another weapon, but there have been... delays.
How close is it to completion?

Krydul: Nearly halfway complete. Keep in mind that less than 5% of the raix we procure is pure enough to refine for weaponized purposes. Supply lines are running thinner. We need new sources soon.
You're not going to win with the weapon alone. I hope you have a deeper strategy.

Krydul: Of course. The weapon is simply insurance. Our strategy is to siphon off the Tej-Brask's supply of raix, while completing our research.
You want to starve them.

Krydul: Given their political situation, even just a small disruption in their supply will cause unrest. With our research, we have adapted to needing smaller amounts than the Tej-Brask, but we are anxious to rid ourselves of the dependency altogether.
What is the status of the research effort?

Krydul: We're continuing to make progress, but finding new subjects for the tests has grown difficult as of late.

Krydul: As the war continues, subjects want to be paid directly in raix... and that is not easy given our supply constraints.
Well, if we were to go after their stock, where would we start?

Krydul: Our best option is currently the Garathon system.
Garathon. We've scanned that region. The Tej-Brask seem to keep a lot of ships there.

Krydul: They do, but the location sits against the edge of their network. It is quite a distance from their nearest fleet deployment area. Reinforcements will take a lot longer to arrive there.
I see.

Krydul: This should give us enough time to punch through and capture both their stock, and their refineries.
An attack of such a size will leave a major hole in your defense.

Krydul: Not with the help of your ships. Besides, the Tej-Brask wouldn't risk sending in a huge counter-attack quite yet. We'll be ready.
I hope the supply in Garathon is worth it.

Krydul: It will be.
