Al icon pc willhelm schrooten.jpg Do we have some logical explanation for what happened?
Al icon pc fernando ramirez.jpg I am sorry, but I can provide only very scrappy information on what has happened; it deserves deeper analysis. At this moment, it looks like some transportation device has been activated, probably something similar to Reticulan q-gates. That opened the way for those creatures, (let's call them Beastmen as our soldiers did), and they attacked our troops.
