Hello Overload Crew extends the invitation to join the sixth event in the OVERLOAD series on September the o2nd – o4th, 2o16. OVERLOAD 6 – Battle of the Red Gorge
STORY 2016. Election year in Kazîrstan, a former soviet country. Bristenia, neighbouring nation and old adversary, spots the perfect moment to act. Background Historically, the foreign relations between the two countries are battered over decades of violence, originated in political and ideological conflict, but mostly fueled by the desire to control the resource rich border area. The entire area earned the name of The Red Gorge, from the rivers of blood shed over the years, the walls of the ravines still stained crimson. The main fighting factions are: 1) Kazîr Armed Forces (KAF) Loyal to the Kazîri government. Main force in the area. Subsidized from the state budget. Consisting mostly of conscripted soldiers. Commands an elite fighter unit, known as the Red Cobras. 2) Bristenia National Army (BNA) An army specialized in guerrilla warfare. Unofficially, they offer paid protection to the drug cartels operating in the border area and exporting their produce into Kazîrstan, this represents their main source of income. Commands an elite forces unit, known as the Devil’s Shadows. Along the border, the conflict has frozen over during recent years. Both countries, however, deployed troops along the demarcation line, and they are in a constant alert state. There is a single official border crossing and it’s heavily fortified. The drug traffic follows a clandestine route to cross the border, also known as the Mule Trail.
Reigniting the Conflict One of the presidential candidates in the upcoming Kazîri elections is openly adversative to Bristenia. Should he be elected, his promise stands to attack on an unprecedented scale the drug trafficking corrupting his country and also to take over the canyon and its resources. Bad news is, he leads the polls. BNA is aware of the lurking danger and plans to assassinate him to quench the threat. The most favourable moment for an attempt might prove the scheduled election run in this region. The convoy is due to pass through a small, secluded village near the borderline.
