After a brief respite in Noctis, the agents were again contacted about a new mission. Three Firewall agents had gone missing in the vicinity of a town called Beatrix Redemption. The team left after supplying up. On their way to this settlement they encountered a pack of robotic animals that attacked them but were quickly dispatched thanks to a plasma rifle. Upon arriving at the dome the team requested entrance to the structure but was informed that their weapons would not be allowed. Reluctantly they surrendered their weapons to enter the dome. Upon enter the group decided to send Q in a new dragonfly morph high above on scout duty. The town however had watch towers that, despite Q’s camouflage, noticed him and opened fire with rifles. They nearly killed him but only asked that he remain in the village while they had negotiations. The group decided to stay in the village to help determine if anything had occurred there even though Beatrix herself had explained to them that the agents in question had visited but had left sometime ago. Q decided to stay outside the city as he was not welcome in his synthetic morph. The town gave the team an eerie feeling and they slept uneasily. Being disturbed during the night by strange occurrences such as the the scarecrow robots running around the town and the kidnapping of the woman whose house they were living in.
The next morning they continued their investigation of the town and everything seemed normal as ever much to the agents surprise. They were only allowed to stay two days so the group took their leave of the town. However two members decided to remain behind and do further investigations. Upon reaching the outside and having their weapons returned, they resolved to go back in with force. The group attempted to drill into the dome hole to enter in, but Beatrix was there quickly and insisted they stop. She seemed to influence Kira by shaking her hand though Kira realized the powers of an async like herself and knew she must be quite powerful. Beatrix left attempting to have the group come peacefully with her to join their lifestyle. Once they refused and again attempted to break into the dome by blasting a hole with Kira’s plasma rifle, the mood suddenly changed. The dome was blacked out and the scarecrows all began to roam the cornfields causing the group to reconsider their plan of attacking. Instead they opted for an insertion through the top of the dome.
The two members still in town were now in danger and barricaded themselves in the church until reinforcements could arrive. The townsfolk were trying to break in but before they could Q flew additional armaments to the two and they managed to hold off the townsfolk. The rest of the team used a combination of weapons and nanites to open a hole at the top of the dome and began to rappel down inside to the center of town. They engaged the townsfolk in the towers as the rappelled killing anyone who shot at them with amazing accuracy. Upon landing the synth scarecrows attacked them and nearly killed one of the members before being overcome by plasma and traditional munition. Now Beatrix was angry and displayed a true show of her power by levitating a large amount of rubble around her using it as both armor and munition to attack the party. But before she could do much Kira shot an incredible shot that threaded the needle and vaporized one of Beatrix’s arms causing her to retreat to the church which was now opened thanks to some of the scarecrows. The two members who were in there had retreated deeper into the church watching as the robots and Beatrix opened a passage that descended below. The party pursued carefully and saw a huge psychosurgery lab as well as massive computer banks with a storage of many morphs. The party engaged the remaining hostiles and defeated them after a brief but fierce fight. The additional exploration of the area showed that they computers had many egos stored on them and that two tunnels ran from the area. One went to a fusion reactor to power the dome and additional systems. The second went far underground into the TQZ and the agents lost contact with their drone that explored that direction.
From among the egos recovered the agents managed to get a large reward for one notorious Fall criminal known as Emmanuel Hyved. These egos included the missing Firewall agents as well though they had undergone extensive psychosurgery.
