1 Hour later.

I hope this works..... Ruegg thought. He'd been spending the last hour trying his best to repair malfunctioning parts of his armor. Most of the problems had been corrected, and the helmet was the last to be repaired and calibrated.

He lifted the helmet onto his head with a satisfying hiss. Well, I didn't break the seal. An instant later, the visor lit up with different monitors. Good, now I have all the displays working. He did one final diagnostic on the systems, and all were green.

Well, I guess I should start searching for any signs of civilization. His best option, though still fraught with unknowns. He was unarmed, in an unknown area. Not a good situation, for any soldier.

As he slowly made his way through the brush and trees of the woods he was dropped into, he noticed a small sign on the radar. Damn. Must still be broken. Oh well, it's my only shot. He began to move towards the signature, wondering what it was, and expecting the worst.

When he came to the source of the radar signature, he was surprised to find supplies from Yuma scattered around a small area. Those must've come with me somehow.... Among other things, he found a number of combat knives, and an experimental .50 handgun. He loaded up as much as he could without hindering his movement, and continued forward, always ready to grab one of the knives.

As he made his way northward, according to the armor's compass, he ran into a snag: A canyon, and no means to cross it.

*sigh* Well, I'll follow this eastward.

Eventually, he came across a bridge. Though, in the distance, he saw something..... strange, though he couldn't determine what. He moved slowly forward, pistol at the ready. As he came around a bend in the road leading from the bridge, he saw what looked like a massive, black gate with strange symbols written on it. His mind was a mess now, wondering why this seemed so familiar, and what would happen if he approached. He couldn't remember, no matter how hard he tried, and decided to move towards it. A rather large mistake. As he came to the barrier, something grabbed him, and pulled him through.
