5. Codename: Kodiak:

Incoming message from : Commander Ford, Command bunker 296-4497.

I regret to say this will be my last transmission. Our supplies are depleted and our forces torn to shreds. We continue to fight this unseen horror but each day more of our best and brightest fall. My only hope is to protect anyone passing within reach of this planet.

A Renegade Mechwarrior from Clan Ghost Bear has landed on our planet and has been slowly tearing us apart. Our best mechwarriors have gone to face the renegade and all have died. I fear all hope is lost.
