Reconnoiter in the Jungle

by Elektra Kaur

We get clean, and clean clothes, and more food, and some information. We need to go reconnoiter the Van de Bergh property near Matumaini because the Van de Berghs may be a threat to this hidden city. After, we will probably need to go talk to the genuine Hammer Empire commando squad of five to ten people.
 
Minzi and Corporal Adani will be escorting us to the edge of the area that we will reconnoiter. They have bone conduction comms gear for us to use on this work.
 
I get to ride a rhinoceros for the second time. I am all smiles!
 
After the rhinoceros ride, we have to walk for two hours before we reach a pond near the wall of the Van de Bergh area. It looks like a twenty foot tall wrought iron gate in a foreboding wall. The wall seems to be wrought iron fencing. It has a strong electromagnetic field, and the grass does not grow within an inch or two of it.
 
Sahara says he could make a staircase that goes above the wall and back down the other side. Psypher says he could jump over it. Chameleon says there are security cameras built into every fourth gnarl in the wrought iron pattern. Loki says he could create an illusion for a distraction.
 
Loki will make an illusion of antelope coming from very far away. When they pass near here, an already dead tree will be knocked over (really by Kabuki) to fall onto the wall. We will see what happens to the wall, what happens to the dead tree, and whether someone comes out to clean it up. I climb up a tree on the opposite side of the pond where I will have plenty of height for a good concealed view of everything that happens. Sahara disperses himself and floats up 200 ft in the air.
 
The dead tree had bats in it. So it kind of exploded when it hit that fence.
 
A man in a ghillie suit appears on the far side of the wall, looks at the situation and talks into a radio. He sprays something on himself when he sees one of the giant prehistoric jackals near him. Four other guys in ghillie suits rise up and then all of them pull back away from the fence. They eventually settle down and vanish into the grass on the inside of the wall.
 
We hear a faint whine as a flock of drones come out of the trees inside the wall. They go to the tree and spray it with a fire suppression foam.
 
More than 400 yards away is a group of ebony trees that have a suspended walkway up in the area of their crowd, and there are people up there who are up there using it as an observation point.
