    Summary

    WARNING ORDER

    In the spring of 1936 a Soviet expeditionary force crossed the Mongolian border into the newly annexed Imperial Japanese puppet state of Mengjiang.

    All contact ceased two months later. As of March, 1937, no trace of them has been found.

    That expeditionary force had been ordered into occupied territory by the Soviet Philosophers. They want answers. And they have no one else to send.

    You will RV with The Sorrow in Beijing and make your way west to their last known position.

    You, The Joy, will ESCORT The Sorrow from Beijing to the Siberian border NO LATER THAN 012400-JUN-37 in order to determine the fate of the missing Soviet expedition while screening Japanese forces in the area.
