First contact with the natives of Atlantis XXIV

Our Lord Valeria, today 20th day of the 9th month of the Imperial Calendar year 40663 we have landed on the surface of Atlantis XXIV. The unit had just unloaded the cargo that our bio-scanner detected the presence of some sort of life form approaching from several directions. After visual contact it was determined that some sorts of natives were close upon us with hostile intentions. I ordered the men under my command in a defensive perimeter with suppression fire. The natives came under obvious belligerent intentions as they were armed with some primitive weapons. Hundreds of them appeared from the woods and attacked our position. Laser, heavy bolter and a lot of grenades killed a lot of them but every time more and more appeared. The natives eventually arrived at close combat distance but our frag armor protected from their blows. However, I can assure from my personal experience that they are hard fighters and we did not have casualties due to their improvised weapons. They seemed to have some kind of military organization as they attacked in groups of 9 specimens and furthermore, they showed some kind of psychic powers manifested only when they were grouped. The results of the action are 2 troopers contused and hundreds of natives killed of whom I’ll send a sample with the next transport with the “Faithfull Exploratio”. I’m waiting for the transports to begin with the exploration of the planet. Glory to Valeria! The Emperor Protects. href="">

  1. Well it looks as if the Valerians had a successful first encounter....though I would fear what comes out of the jungle next in case that was just a probe.
