Previous post: The Juggernaut, Chapter 9 by Monty Wild
< I was there, you know,> the old crew-member said to the younger. < I was a merchant at the time, and I was bringing a truck-load of supplies to trade for refined ore when the [Broad Peninsula Conglomerate] combat automata overtook me from behind. They ignored me, of course, since neither my truck nor I were one of their objectives.
Then I saw the Juggernaut emerge. The [Fifth Range Ninth Mountain Mining Camp] had built it inside [Sixth Mountain]’s peak, and it blasted its way out, the whole mountain peak just exploding away from it. That really made me pull my eye in, I can tell you.
Well, there it was, this huge black… spot, I suppose you’d call it,> Commandthree said.
