Episode 212 - Show of Force: Talons of The Emperor
Episode 212 of The Independent Characters is, as you know, incredibly late. We talk about that in the episode. Nothing to worry about folks, just general life and scheduling getting in the way. But the important thing is that it is now here! And boy is it! We have a show that clocks in at over three hours of content for you as we tackle the Adeptus Custodes in our Show of Force: Talons of The Emperor episode! I want to thank Jody and Justin for joining us this episode. Their commitment to the show should not go unmentioned. We really hope you enjoy this episode and we are working to get back on some semblance of a schedule for you. One last thing - during the show we misspeak about the "Sworn Guardians" rule for Adeptus Custodes. In the show we state that a unit with this ability controls an objective even if outnumbered. However, what we didn't read was the second part of the rule which states that if a unit has a similar rule (Objective Secured really), then "the objective marker is controlled by the player who has the most models within range of it as normal." Sorry for any confusion we may have caused! We hope you enjoy this episode!

Ltc Merritt Edson (1st Marine Raider Battalion) Battle of Lunga Ridge, Guadalcanal 12-13SEPT1942
12-13SEPT1942:  Commanding the 1st Marine Raider Battalion, Ltc Merritt Edson learned of a coming attack against the US lines.  Anticipating that it would come near an area known as Lunga Ridge, he petitioned his commander to reinforce.  The two disagreed so in turn, Edson asked that his men move to that sector for a little rest from the main lines.   Arriving on September 11th, he had his men start to dig in and prepare their defense.  Just as they were doing so, Japanese soldiers were making their way through the thick undergrowth in preparation for their attack. As the battle kicked off on the 12th, Edson moved back and forth amongst his lines, motivating his men, assigning sectors of fire and doing all he could to hold the lines.  If his men failed, Henderson Field could fall and with it, the entire US presence on Guadalcanal. As the sun rose after hours of deadly combat, Edson had his men reinforce their positions and prepare for what they all knew was coming, a second wave that night.  Just after 2100 on the 13th it kicked off, with nearly 3,000 Japanese attacking Edson's 830 Marines.   With some Marines falling back or being overrun, Edson consolidated their position and directed danger close artillery right against their position.  By morning, the ridge was covered with dead Japanese soldiers.  The Marines had held. For his actions during the fight that would come to be known as Edson's Ridge, Ltc Merritt Edson was awarded the Medal of Honor.
