About this creation
On the planet Baunmaald, the newest planet added to the roster of MEGAlodus mining operations, the Kharakian Raiders meet at a discrete location.

Residing in the deserts of Baunmaald are a very devout group of nomads known as the Kharakian Raiders. Their leader, the Grand Khan, has called them together to organize their next raid targets, and how they will split up the teams.

Some of the weaponry and equipment featured may be from one of the following: BrickForge, BrickArms, or The Little Arms Shop.

All captions are below the pictures.

Grand Khan: It's imperative that we get things organized quickly. We need to get more slaves to the Emperors of Ikenda IV. If we don't get the slaves, we'll be looked at as possible slaves. As my trusted adviser, I would like to know what the next plan of action should be.

Adviser: As always I suggest we consult the Shard. The Shard will give us the answer as it usually does.

The Shard, the religious text of the Kharakian Raiders, was written long ago as a guide to survive the harsh desert lands. Stories of brave individuals leading the poor and dying to water, food, and shelter comprise The Shard and it is considered the biggest piece of heritage and culture of the Kharakian Raiders. The Shard is symbolized by a shard from the claw of the bandit dragon, one of the fifteen types of flightless dragons. The Shard, claw of the bandit dragon, is often used in religious ceremonies and predicting the future.

Adviser: These five cards represent the five major cities of the desert. The cities: Kharakbul, Kharakstan, Kharakia, Ahgreb, and Amenijia are still weak from recent raids. We've kept the police to a minimum, and we've bribed everyone else. It is time to decide what it is we need to do and the Shard will tell us when to attack again.

Grand Khan: I have most of my men here today. If The Shard tells us where to attack first, we will be able to divide the troops strategically from there.

Adviser: Pay attention now while I toss the cards and let The Shard do its will.

So the adviser tossed the cards into the desert sand. They faced almost the same as when the adviser had them originally.

Then with his gloved hand, because handling The Shard without a glove is considered disrespectful, the adviser tossed it towards the cards. The Shard made contact with the cards and shuffled two different cards, the cards of Kharakstan and Kharakbul were switched.

Adviser: Aaaaah, I see.

Grand Khan: What does The Shard tell us?

Adviser: It shows that the raids should start in the city of Kharakbul. That is the weakest city in the desert at the moment, and the easiest to force slavery.

The Grand Khan stared in bewilderment. "How could this be?" he thought to himself. Kharakbul has never been weak. In fact, the last time they had a raid in Kharakbul they were ambushed by rebels from Ikenda IV. How could it be that Kharakbul has been that weakened?

Adviser: I know what you are thinking...this is a lie.

Grand Khan: I just...I...How? You know what happened last time we entered Kharakbul!

In a quiet soothing voice, one that a mentor would use on his young pupil the adviser said:

Adviser: The Shard never lies...

The Grand Khan couldn't help but swearing under his breath. Through gritted teeth he rebuttled:

Grand Khan: It's no matter! We'll crush anybody who gets in our way. I will make sure we are so successful we'll all be able to afford new, lighter gear!

Grand Khan: Now please leave me be. I have to develop my strategy before I approach the other raiders.

The conversation being held between the Grand Khan and his most trusted adviser seemed to be nonexistent to the other raiders. What did matter, however, was the grub.

Hunter: Look what I pulled in. A tasty birdy to feed on!

Raider (gray hair): It's about time! We've been hungrin about and waiting for you to pull in some good food for us. It's obvious your team has been unprepared lately!

The raid leader next to the loudmouth wanted to put his two cents in but remembered how his jaw was still damaged after their last failed attack. Nothing is more humiliating than being dragged away after a defeat. One raider killed and another missing, it's a surprise he, the raid leader that day, was allowed to live.

Cook: Who cares! At least I have something to make a good stew out of finally! Give me the bird and I'll start cleaning it.

Veteran Raider: I agree, just get the food cooking! At least we have something to fill our empty stomachs. I have a big feeling something big is going down and I want to be traveling on a full stomach.

In a different circle of raiders, one raider talks about his groups success in the last mission.

Raider (goggles): Just last week we took four slaves, and we never stepped foot inside one of the five major cities! We caught a caravan trying to cross the desert and made them give us their goods, which we sold for an undisclosed amount of credits, and forced them into chains!

Raider (black hair): I bet you can't top that without setting foot in the weakest city around.

It was true, but only because luck wasn't on his side. It makes no sense to pair him with complete nimrods. How could he possibly get that many slaves without using advanced technology? It was complete luck they happened upon that caravan!

Apart from the argument were two good friends talking about what looked ahead for them.

Andris knew they were going on another raid soon, and as senior members of the raiding party, they knew they would be selected to participate no matter what.

Andris: It will be a city. We both know this. The only question is which city. The Emperors of Ikenda IV are worried about keeping up with the production of tanks and standard issue weapons. Without slaves to assist in the manufacturing process, the rebellion with not be crushed.

Another raid was the last thing Angie had on her mind. She was thinking about how great it would be to be back in a town and get a good nights rest. Angie was not always a resident of Baunmaald and she wished she never was. But with friends like Andris and The Grand Khan taking her in and giving her food and shelter.

Andris: Listen, Angie, I know you want to get back into the city. It won't be that bad. It will probably be Ahgreb and you won't even have to work hard to get slaves. Maybe you could just find a nice inn and take a bed instead of sand.

Angie: Andris you don't have to worry about me. I've been fine for five years sleeping in the desert. We've both worked our way up from the bottom and you didn't lose your legs just to quit. You got robotic legs and kept going. You've forgotten the past and let it go; something I need to learn to do to. Now let's get the details from the Khan, I'm ready to make some money.

Above Andris and Angie were the two scouts.

Red scout: Nothing for miles. We're clear for now, nobody will bother us tonight.

Masked Scout: I wouldn't be so sure, I'm picking something up in the distance. You and I are gonna have a long night. I'll let the Khan know we'll be leaving soon and that we'll send him a report on what we find.

Red scout: It could be anything though! There are so many creatures that come out right before night that we have no idea what it could be.

Masked Scout: Are you willing to risk it?

Red scout: Good point, I'll get ready for the trip.

As dusk set in, the raiders continued to bicker and rant about various things. All the while, the Grand Khan was preparing a very dangerous raid on the city of Kharakbul.

I'm sorry if this episode wasn't as good as the others. I wrote it really late because I'm sick of the photos sitting on my computer and not being put into a story yet. Eventually all the events here will play into my master scheme!
