First off, recon, The 68th Krieg was stationed on your planet for 2 years due to heavy Xeno activity a few systems over. The blue bastards were beaten back, and the 68th were pulled out. As of now, that's all you know.
You're serious about all this. You ask Emmie to help you help her. Over the next few months she has you run a pretty easy, by Imperial Guard standards, training regime. Waking up early for running, muscle and dexterity building exercises, Emmie's favorite is making you dig trenches on the weekends, and shooting practice. Luckily there's a firing range just outside of town. You had to get a permit for Las weapons, but it was pretty easy to do so. You also get yourself a basic Krieger Kit from the surplus store, however you hold off on more donut extractions. You save diligently, cutting a lot of fat of fat budget, yet you still seem to spoil Emmie.
Emmie manages to get a job as, believe it or not, a substitute teacher, she looks very nice in a suit.
You've managed to track down the 68th. It appears that right now they are beating down a minor Chaos incursion a few sub-sectors rimward.
And it's all led up to this. You've managed to get a position for you and Emmie on a small trading vessel. You'll be part of only about a 12 man crew, and you were told it would mostly be grunt work. But the pay is better then you expected, and they are heading in the right general direction of the 68th. You will be embarking in about a week. You've already quite your current job and sold most of your possessions, anything you couldn't easily carry with you on the ship. You've been sleeping on a cot like Emmie's for a few weeks now, and you're getting used to it.
You and Emmie have decided to take the next week easy.
