Secret Invasion Cube 001 submitting report to hive mind.

Secret Cube 001 has been incommunicado for some time but it has not been dormant. Pushing deeper into the region it has been largely successful in wining several encounters and thus gathering necessary raw materials to build the collective.

Unfortunately assimilation efforts have been largely unsuccessful.

While exploring the northern regions of the mostly forested planet drones were set upon by a marauding crew of dwarfs. The attack was repelled and the borg retained control of the planet and it's resources.


However, it is clear that the planet's resources have the attention of several species. A crew of pirates raised a black banner and attacked a scouting detail a few days later. That attack was also repelled but again the drones failed to bring back subjects for assimilation.


At this point the planet was mistakenly deemed secure. However, we have now encountered the most dangerous of foes. The crew calls themselves Aliens. We have met the beings on three occasions. The first encounter was a success as they were put to flight. However the second encounter was fought to a standstill and in the third our forces were routed. The Aliens have begun to build a hive on a rich land mass on the equator of the planet.

Efforts are underway for assimilation. Their resistance will be futile.

Also note that assimilation of these beings could result in the hive mind upgrade to claw capabilities.




More recently, there was another encounter with more dwarfs. However these were different. They were kin to their what the hive refers to as Chaos Dwarfs. This encounter was also a victory but they are a clear threat to efforts in the region.


Finally the reason for the transmission of this report is to update the hive mind. Secret Cube 001 encountered beings that are more of a disease than an average foe. Due to their rotting nature they will not be subjects for assimilation. However we have found a use for them.

The smallest of the creatures are referred to as Nurgling. They are mostly useless. However when our drones moved to strike them the drones often malfunctioned and avoided contact.

Fortunately, the encounter was a victory and the drones were able to return with a sample nurgling which was vivisected. The offensive odor has now been reproduced and with a few more samples it will be available for all drones. It should make them more effective in the field.



At this point, the hive mind is fully up to date.

Records transmission to hive mind.

Cube 001 continues incursion into Secret Sector encountering a variety of subjects. Unfortunately, while tactical victories have been achieved, assimilation efforts have been thwarted.

In this encounter unstable elves know as Witch Elves battled to a draw. Despite many efforts, the witch healer was able to salvage what looked to be a clear assimilation.

The next encounter was against Daemons of Khorne. This Cube is entirely unprepared to cope with the weaponry of the adversary. The collective was routed. The creatures known as Blood Letters and the leader known as a Blood Thirster scrapped drone after drone. Nevertheless, if either creature can be dragged back to the cube knowledge to be assimilated would be immense. Encounters should be limited as defeat is nearly guaranteed. However, all encounters should focus on capture of these creatures.

On the red dual mooned planet of the system resides a breed of human infected with disease lycanthropy. They possess similarities to the bear, wolf, and feline creatures. While care must be taken, there is much to be gained from them through assimilation. Unfortunately, again, despite proven tactics, the landing party failed to return with materials for assimilation.

While exploring the same planet, the landing party encountered a human band lead by a creature called an Oni. The landing party was nearly successful in returning with the carcass of the beast for assimilation. After knocking it to the ground, the entire party contributed in an effort to subdue it. The beast looked to be dead. It did not regenerate. However, the human medic managed to resuscitate it enough for it to escape. The creature is formidable but would be an extreme prize.

Hive mind is up to date. Thirteen of Sixteen has acquired the skills Block, Dodge, Leap, and Tackle.

Ranked Invasion Cube 023 Reporting. After a long period of radio silence, we finally encountered an enemy war band. The encounter was a success but nothing useful for the hive mind was gained. Two of Fourteen and Four of Fourteen both acquired new upgrades.

League Invasion Cube 001 reporting. This Cube continues to be stationed above the Tazman Sea observing activities in the Southern Wastes and Deserted Isles. A long period without any encounters was finally broken when a squadron of High Elves was engaged. Many attempts were made at assimilation but the subject seemed to be deceptively well armoured. Despite the failure to assimilate, the enemy was defeated.

Upgrade was attained by Five of Sixteen - Dodge

League Invasion Cube 001 has accepted the Hive directive to be more aggressive in its drive to assimilate. To achieve this the Leeg on the Deserted Isles has been successfully infiltrated. The enemy now has no way of evading scheduled encounters.

Standard [L]eague ruleset now has access to Orc Renegades. Are Orcs able to be assimilated by League Invasion Cube 001?

League Invasion Cube 001 reporting. This Cube stationed above the Deserted Isles has noticed increased activity as the enemy prepare for a new season. A mixed race squadron of goblins, skaven and a troll was encountered, all specimens which would be of interest for assimilation.

Five of Sixteen successfully targeted a Skaven Thrower for assimilation. However, enemy apothecary intervention retrieved the body from transit to League Invasion Cube 001. Resistance is futile. In future, apothecaries shall be eliminated.

Again, despite failure to assimilate, the enemy was defeated.

Upgrades were attained by:
Three of Sixteen - Block
Eight of Sixteen- Block

It would appear that the Orc Renegade is available to [B]ox and [R]anked cubes as well. If the collective works by consensus, I'd advocate for allowing the assimilation of Orcs! Immediately and repeatedly!

League Invasion Cube 001 reporting. Infiltration into the Leeg began with an encounter with a squadron of High Elves. The squad appeared an easy target with 5 Loner units not fully integrated. Assimilation was the priority as there was a clear opportunity for utilisation of this body type.

However, it seems it was a trap. Despite 65 assimilation attempts with Fist and 14 with Boot the elves resisted. Resistance is Futile. Two very high specification enemy units repeatedly attacked the Cube and complete failure was experienced.

0-5 defeat.

Upgrade was attained by:
Eight of Sixteen - Block. Eight of Sixteen will miss the next encounter while the upgrade is installed.

Unit Seven of Sixteen was decommissioned and replaced with Seven of Sixteen.

Ranked invasion cube 023 reporting another victory on the battlefield. We were unable to assimilate any of the enemy however, so the victory felt incomplete. Nothing of note was added to the hive mind. Drone Ten of Fourteen earned a doubles upgrade.

The hive is encouraged by the dedication of cubes throughout universe. The hive mind is updated.

Let it be known that in any areas where orc bodies my be used by the cube they should now be assimilated. (If you may recruit Orc renegades in your league go ahead and assimilate Orcs)
