Another Paramilitary Mission

Most of the team is doing some recon in Europe, Nyx, Threshold, and Whisper get assigned a rescue mission. A reporter was captured by a rebel group in Afghanistan. We fly in and land in a nearby field.
Nyx and Threshold have their super senses jammed and the bright sun weakens Nyx's powers.
Threshold can tell what buildings in the small village the jamming is coming from, appears to be 7 buildings and guesses the reporter is in one of them.
We split the group up, Nyx and Nox head to the south towards the closest building with a jammer and it is kinda off by itself and might be a communications or storage building. Whisper heads straight down the middle to draw the fire as much as possible. Threshold teleports on top of a building between the main road and the south building that Nyx and Nox are headed for.
Nox arrives before Nyx and sees a glowing pulsating metal sphere that seems to be the source of the interference, Nox arrives a few seconds later and they disable it.
Threshold gets s a free attack when he ports to the roof and using his Obliteration Beam in Cone mode destroys the roof of two buildings, causing the 3 sentries to fall in.
Whisper attacks the only guy on the street, doing some damage with her hatchets but not taking him out.
The bad guys get a turn, shooting Threshold in the face who needs to use a wildcard point to make it a flesh wound and still falls prone (but still on the roof). A few shoot at Nyx on his way to the building but are all comfortably avoided. Whisper, as hoped gets the bulk of the shots but her armor mostly reduces it to minimal damage - though she also needed to use a wildcard point for a flesh wound.
Whisper jumps onto the building and goes after a guard up there, this keeps more guards focused on her as she is now in plain sight of everyone.  Threshold pops over behind some guards shooting at Whisper and obliterates their rifles and the roof, knocking 4 more to the ground.
About half the guards have been disabled, at least partially in the first few seconds of the fight. Whisper dodges off the roof, leaving a grenade behind taking out two more of the enemy.
Nox and Nyx power stunt a large Obscure and cover the area in darkness, somehow not affecting our team.
Threshold pops over to the north of a central building that seems a likely candidate and obliterates the wall to see what is inside.  He sees the reporter and three terrorist's.
One powers up the other two and  they charge Threshold but miss, Threshold ports away and obliterates the jammer and more of the building with the reporter. All that is left is a small corner they were hiding in (the leader holding the reporter hostage) exposing them to Whisper who can now reach them without going around the former building.
Nyx starts taking out the remaining southern guards, Whisper goes after the hulked out terrorists trying to reach Threshold using a grenade. Threshold ports to the ground  in front of the leader and hits him with the Obliteration Beam (using Selective Area to avoid the reporter) and he falls unconscious.
As soon as he passed out all the bad guys did.
Threshold patches him up and checks out the reporter then teleports her to the base while the rest search and restrain everyone.
The team finds a Delta Force unit that had previously been sent in and been captured and tortured, Threshold portals them all to the base for emergency treatment.


We rescued the reporter and as a bonus several Delta team members. Also retrieved 4 functional and 1 scraped (by Nox) jammers and a number of high tech (ETC) rifles. Most of the terrorist's were captured alive, Whisper being the only one who killed any and our bosses are happy with the mission results.
