Tucked in beside the Astropathic Tower, there is sturdy rockcrete block bristling with a large variety of aerials and antennas like an overgrown hedgehog. Covered in the shadow of the Astropathic Tower half the day, the Coms relay block isn't usual a busy place, but there is usually someone on hand watching over the important equipment inside or manning the multitude of voxs within.

On the inside it is a small and tightly pack building. As one enters they would find that themselves flanked by two blocks, giving the impression of a short and tight corridor. On the left is a small toilet cubicle (vox operators can't waste time leaving the build for such necessity, so they are permitted this little comfort) which door can never be fully open due to the large block of vox equipment which takes up the other side of the entrance.

Once past the tight entrance space, one would find a slightly large corridor with door lining ether side. These rounds seem to very very, some have work spaces. Others are fill with importance looking equipment. Other rooms are still a mystery to all but those who have taken the time to look. Above each door and extending up the wall is a maze of crisscrossing wires of every sharp and size. These seem to gather on the roof of the room to form a canopy of low hanging vines around the lights which make their way ether to the large block of vox equipment at the entrance or to the multiple plugs spread unevenly around the room which undoubtedly go to the aerials outside.

At the end of the corridor is another another door, but this one has De Grotto written on it. Inside is a small room, the same size as the others. At the back there is a firing port with a reinforced cover which can be closed over it. These can be used for firing slots if the base was overrun, but more commonly is used for air flow or sun light during the hours of 0900 and 1127. Before the firing postion there a small but sturdy looking wooden desk. On the desk there is a couple of maps, a vox receiver, some office materials and a simple steel mug. On the side of the desk is a mount for a vox caster and leaned against the desk is a strange looking rifle with a sharp, nasty looking blade extending of the muzzle. There is also a single long draw to the desk, but this is always locked. Beside this the room is practically empty, devoid of decoration or colour.

[[This thread is for any vox operators who want there own place to do vox stuff, those who want to track down a vox operator or someone who wants to formally meet De Grotto.]]

The haste with which Kriegers rush to do their duty can be compared with the one used by any other guardsman in avoiding theirs, Unit #9453/8-316 is no different.

With the speed and force of a silent storm, the Kriegerin ran through the Imperial Guard base, into the building, up the stairs, through the doors and corridors threatning to bulldose everything and everyone that will stand in their way.
Those who saw the incoming Krieg Projectile knew better to give space and those who did not notice it knew of its presence only after hearing the 'whoosh' and sudden gust of air that followed the shadowy bullet.

And here it is, inside the building slowing down and coating the floor with heat from the friction until finally it arrived into DeGrotto's Office. Unit #316 knocked on the door and once given permission to enter did so, marching to the Ordnance Master's Desk and snapped in attention with a salute.
"Scout Unit #9453/8-316 reporting for Mission as Ordered. Recieved Clerance from Command"

"Splendid." De Grotto reply, now allowing a faint smile to appear on his face. Thank the Emperor for the reliability of the Kriegers. "Now I'm sure you would like to know your intended target." the officer continued as he pulled a piece of paper from a bin under his desk. Placing it on the table, it appears to be the latest issue of "The love letter.". "Are you familiar with this paper or the name 'Romantic Remy'?"

'Remy, Romantic' a name of what at first seemed like a mockery of her failures and recently turned into an invaluable teacher and confidant.
DOES THE OFFICER KNOW?!
Kriegers are unable to experience Panic for it was an unacceptable drop in morale and combat effectiveness. The Kriegerin's Combat Effectivness and Morale were unchanged so it cannot be classified as Panic, yes.

"Affirmative, a pamphlet published by the Elusive Unit with clear intel on all Guard Activities. No damage was reported therefore 'Remy, Romantic' is deemed a nuicance."
Unit #9453/8-316 did a terrific job at masking its NOTpanic as a pause meant for thinking and formulating a satisfctory answer

"Ah come on, Dougie." Ahde leaned on the doorway of the room, having lowered his mouthpiece and wandered over to listen in, "If you go after Remy, they'll only start mocking you harder. Best thing to do is lean into it, let them build your reputation as scary if that's what you want."

At the explanation that he shouldn't use nicknames, Ahde smiled good naturedly, "Noted." quite what he'd noted, and whether it was a good thing for DeGrotto was unclear.
As Wesley puttered above his head, the vox officer reached up and gave the servo skull a tiny socket wrench to hold.
"There you go, I've promoted you to engineering and repair for the day." he saluted Wesley and winked.

Ahde listened to the discussion about Romantic Remy, and tapped a finger to his chin in consideration, "I don't think Remy is one person. Think about the things they've witnessed. No way one person holds a rank that lets them into all those places."

"Affirmative, Ordnance Master." The Unit stated and added "A report is required for granting clerance to participate."

"Consider it done." De Grotto reply as he turned his attention to grabbing a form and pen on his desk. "You can begin your searching now, I will send this to your commanding officer once I'm done.". Pausing for a moment, the older man look up in Ahde's direction once more. "Since you are here, I'm sure you are free enough to run this report to the krieg HQ bunker. Am I correct?".

Ahde chuckled at Wesley and then turned his attention back to Douglas, "Of course. No need to worry at all."
He walked over to save DeGrotto from having to move, "You need it on a private frequency, or will standard do?" despite his usual teasing, the vox officer at least always took the vox related part of his life seriously.

"Private would be best, the less the enemy knows of our movements, the better.". Whether De Grotto was referring to the tau or Remy was unclear, though Ahde would be familiar with the officer's strict observance of regulations. As he handed the finished form to the vox operator, he addressed both personal in turn. "Thank you Ahde. You are dismissed to proceed with your task unit 316.".

The Krieg Scout clicked its heels, saluted the Officer and left the room.

*How did I get myself into this situation?*
Erika thought to herself as she walked to her next assigment, to which an answer surfaced inside her own psyche; a thought not of her own invaded her mind with a force of thunder
*CONTINGIENCY ORDER 11: THE UNIT WILL OBEY ALL LEGAL ORDERS ISSUED BY LEGAL COMMAND UNITS TO MAXIMUM ABILITY. CONTINGIENCY ORDER 12: IN THE ABSENCE OF ORDERS: THE UNIT WILL WILLINGLY VOLUNTEER AND ACCEPT ALL LEGAL ORDERS & MISSIONS...*
*-CEASE*
Interjection. Point taken, no need for further distractions. Current objective is reporting back on base and that Unit #9453/8-316 will do.

((Scene change.))

Carolyne yawned as she sat in her office currently filling out forms on changing the rotation of the vox stations and scheduling her own recording sessions. Abigail sat off to her left currently half buried under paperwork involving infractions and reports filed against the Second Sons for issues with other units and coherency in joint operations. Paperwork for much of the issues with the Second Sons ended up in front of her, she had the free time to actually read it and try to write a proper response and make the offender sign it, it was the best she could do considering some of her colleagues. The pile of notices never got smaller as they usually reserved one day a week to work on trying to shrink it, the goal was just to keep the pile from breaking Abigail's desk in two.

Luca sat by the door in his fatigues the Lucifer was technically on assigned duty but playing the guitar in armor was a bit too difficult especially with how hot it was in the Comms building he decided it was better to leave it off in the corner of the room.

"Astora, recaf." Carolyne ordered as she stood up from her desk stretching she had music lessons with Erika soon and the Lucifer was here to provide accompanying music.

"Pastries too please Luca!" Added Abigail hidden behind the mountain of papers, the young woman liked to have sweets with her recaf.

"Got it." He added rising from his seat where he had been going through letters figuring out what to answer on the next show. The Lucifer rose from his seat walking down the hall towards the recaf machine and opening a drawer where Carolyne stash pastries she purchases for the week.

Abigail giggled a little. "We have a stormtrooper from Terra and he's fetching pastries and recaf... Some days I wonder if him being assigned here was a mistake by munitorum."

Carolyne gave a curt smile. "Well if he wasn't here he'd be off with the Cadian's probably getting the third degree for being a Glory Boy and a Terran. Besides, a single trooper like him could do a lot of good inspiring men and women across the planet to support the guard... Sometimes a symbol is better than a gun. After all how many guardsmen do you know other than him that wear an Aquila?"

2 Knocks where made upon the Door followed by a Request of a muffled voice "Unit #8-316 of 9453th Company, requesting Entry."

After given the Permission, a tall and bulky figure entered the room, despite a Respirator sealing its face, it was without a doubt the Kreigerin Scout Erika Hass given the Identification. She sharply saluted in perfect order and then announced
"Reporting for 'Singing' Training, Ma'am!"

Caroylne spoke. "Enter!" She called as Erika entered she heard footsteps from behind her, Luca had a tray with cups of recaf and pastries on it.

"Oh hey, Erika!" Luca added, he felt a little embarrassed being seen out of the armor fetching food and drinks like a secretary, but he figured Erika wouldn't be one to mock him about it.

Abigail gave the Krieger a wave from behind the grand stack of papers as Carolyne stood up. "Wonderful to see you again, Luca would you grab a guitar from the main vox communications area." She added as the Lucifer sat the tray down on Carolyne's desk and the woman picked up her recaf sipping it. "Now, today's lesson will be teaching how to sing in key. First things first, I suggest losing some of the armor. The carapace is heavy uncomfortable it will wear you out faster."
