For those of you who don't speak Cybertronian, Bumblebee just radioed in with a report. Our target is in a valley on the other side of the Xialknot Pass, guarded by eight satyrs. Three are on the lookout. The other five are dancing around the prisoner, performing some sort of ritual, a ritual building up enough energy to shake the foundations of the continent itself. According to Bumblebee's scanners, the buildup is coming from the captured human. If we stop the ritual, we stop the energy. We have several hours before it reaches critical mass, but if we want to rescue the one in the southernmost location, we don't have a moment to lose.
We should reach the pass within the next twenty minutes. Helmsmen, take us down in the ruins on the west side of the pass, but keep the engines warm -- we might need to make a quick getaway.
Pilots, you'll be flying as many people as you can over the pass as well as providing air support, if you feel you can fight without hitting us or the captured target. Those going with them, assemble in the hangar. The rest will be going on land, myself included. I can take a few people with me. I won't be as quick as the pilots, but we'll get there.
Don't attack right away -- the last thing we need is the satyrs picking us off one by one. We'll rendezvous at Bumblebee's location. The signal to attack will be a shot from my laser rifle.
Remember, our first priority is to rescue the human and stop the energy. Once the ritual is interrupted and the captive is safe and sound, then we worry about the satyrs. We still don't know how strong they are, so don't be afraid to pull out once we have our target.
Be ready to roll out as soon as we land.

Captain Reynolds, we've reached the Rahki River location. Our scout reports eight satyrs: three on guard, five performing some kind of dance around the target. The target itself is tied to a dais in the center, covered in glyphs. The source of the energy appears to be the captive itself. According to our calculations, we have several hours before this one reaches its critical mass. We plan to attack as soon as possible. If we finish the operation fast, we may have time to reach the one in the south.
What's your situation?
