I cruise by the turn off for the Martian Council eyeing the EDF patrols that wander by while simultaneously keeping my eye on the cliffs surrounding the base. Then I spot it up ahead; the perfect outcropping just high enough to allow me to get up and over the range of hills that surround the base; with the help of my handy jetpack anyway. Smiling, I step on the gas and move down the road quickly stashing my pickup behind some boulders. Never know; I might have to make a hasty exit. With a deep breath I sprint towards the hills, leaping activating my jetpack’s thrusters at the apex of my jump. With a series of assisted leaps, and one close call with some over-zealous EDF grunt, I manage to make it to the top of a large cliff. I stare for a moment at the Martian Council building my lip curling in disgust at the clean lines and utilitarian design of the EDF built structure. Unlimbering my home-brewed rocket launcher I take careful aim and let loose a missile. Concrete, glass and rebar fly in all directions followed almost immediately by the first pot-shots from the EDF troops below. I smile, staring into the smoke filled hole in the council building; definitely an improvement.
