“You and your party have been contracted to carry out an extremely hazardous mission into the Arctic wastes. You have been chosen for your specialist skills and experience but to preserve deniability you will largely be on your own.
You can expect to be out on the ice for at least a week and there have been reports of hostiles in the area. We will get supplies to you when we can but you cannot rely upon them. The remains of several previous contracts may provide some resources but you will have to be careful with your stores.
You must also be mindful that in the lonely wastes the threats are not always physical, your mental well-being is also vital to your success. Keep your spirits high and don’t forget to stop to rest when the mission allows!
You mission briefing starts in an hour and you depart at first light. The weather forecast is atrocious with whiteout conditions – good luck
