Summary: The isolated Kingdom of Bhutan is a mountainous land that has only recently begun to extend contact to the outside world. The extremely popular monarch has voluntarily begun the process of conversion to a Constitutional Monarchy and has begun modernizing reforms.
A Talent known only as Bhatt manifested about five years ago. He takes the form of a creature from ancient pre-Buddhist Bhutanese mythology and is suspected of having traveled to Assam at least once prior to Yama’s Apocalypse. The Directorates of Surveillance and Intelligence have pieced together an upsurge in Swords of Naciketas activity coinciding with a sudden flurry of activity from Bhatt. Operations Team was sent to assassinate Bhatt before he could consolidate a mythologically-based hold over the population of rural Bhutan in preparation for a political takeover of a country that would be a perfect replacement for Assam.
Operations Team was given minimal briefing information in an attempt to stymie the precognitive abilities of Jawarhalal Gupta, leader of the Swords of Naciketas. They were infiltrated into Bhutan. They scouted Bhatt’s elaborate temple-palace compound, evading his summoned demon minions, and infiltrated the assault Operatives to complete the operation.
Subsequently, Operations Team was briefed by (Redacted) and sent to the island of Aceh in Indonesia where an armed resistance movement had recently entered into an agreement with the democratically-elected central government to lay down their arms in exchange for the right to directly elect local officials. Section 2 had reason to believe this was a ruse as there was some evidence that the group was sponsored by the Swords of Naciketas. Operations Team spent three days in Aceh scouting the compound and the local citizenry obtaining evidence of ongoing terrorist activity and connections to the Swords.
