Part Two of the Albenistan Series, a d20 Modern adventure supplement
Information gathered from a raid on a drug smuggling waystation near the village of Ashkashem has led Great Britain's Secret Intelligence Service to investigate an abandoned vehicle repair facility near the town of Qalashar along Albenistan's border with Afghanistan. It seems the abandoned facility is abandoned no more. Someone has occupied the base, but for what purpose? Worse, a letter recovered in the Ashkashem raid refers to a device or weapon that will 'strike fear in the hearts of the enemy and destroy their feeble resolve.' What kind of device could be hiding at the Qalashar facility? Fear of what this weapon might be and how it could be used has lead the SIS to reactivate the Increment unit that successfully completed the raid on Ashkasham. Their mission: discover who has occupied the Qalashar facility and neutralize any threat that might be posed by the Qalashar Device.

Wyrdmaster at Gamewyrd says: "It's dead simple. If you want a no-fx d20 military adventure and buy adventures then cough up the peanuts for this download."
Nick Mulherin at Silven Crossroads says: "Fraser Ronald has spent a lot of time getting the details and feel of the base down, including when the men eat, what they keep in their closets, and what their coffee cups look like. Like the base in Raid on Ashkashem, there's a lived-in feel to it, especially given small touches such as a TV playing a South American soap opera dubbed into Russian with Tajik subtitles."
Wayne Tonjes at GamingReport.com says: "Overall, this is an interesting mission for a military d20 Modern campaign with nice options for connecting to the other adventures of the series."
Dallas Parsons at d20 Zines says: "I think this series of adventures would be best used as a filler period between campaigns, or if the players were just wanting a night of shooting terrorists."
