After a pair of engagements, the kill teams on world realize that they are not alone and that rival factions exist trying to recover relics as well.
After some tracking, base camps have been located and the factions that have proven to have secured the most so far are in the most danger as their rivals move in on their base camps.
Episode 3 utilizes The Raid scenario found within the Shadow War Armageddon book. When playing out the game, the player with the most relics at game’s beginning is the defender and the player with the least relics is the attacker. In the case of a tie in relic count, players will roll-off to determine attacker or defender.
