Into the Mist

Without warning, on the morning of the 10th of August, a deep white mist appeared in the highlands of Ethiopia, near the city of Harar. Before long the mist began to spread out in all directions. The mist has remained there ever since, and does not shift with the weather.

It is deep, and furthermore it seems to play havoc with any electronics. Most notably, any communication technology dies almost instantly upon contact. Several groups, both private and from the UN, have entered the mist. None have since returned. In fact, no one has come out of the mist since it arrived.

Most alarmingly however, the mist is growing at a speed of 15 kilometres in every direction every day, although it does not seem to be able to cross the ocean. At this rate, however, it will occupy all of northeastern Africa within three months.

Marshal Caine has declared the mist unnatural and probably the work of Angelspawn. He is mounting an expedition into the mist, using Mass Production Evangelions. He has extended an invitation to the Federation to assist as well, assuring the Federation that all proprieties will be maintained in regards to the Angelspawn truce.

The Federation has agreed, and together a joint UN-UEF force has been assembled, with the UN dispatching three MP Evas; Ezra Caine will be in overall command of both teams, but the UEF is permitted to dispatch its own commander to work with him, with communication to be via telepathy with an MP Eva back near HQ. Caine's objective is to locate the source of the Mist; if readily possible, it is to be destroyed. Otherwise, on locating it, as much data as possible is to be gathered, and then the forces are to retreat. As a secondary objective, the team is to find any survivors and escort them to safety; or, more likely, at least discover what happened to those in the Mist.
