Gate Defense Protocol – not a step back in The Red Star

Not yielding an inch to RPGaDay!

Protocol gates are a central keystone of the mobility and logistics of the Red Fleet. At the same time, they are a critical weakspot that can grant an enemy direct access to Red Fleet vessels and infrastructure. The Red Fleet thus expended considerable resources on devising and implementing gate defense plans, including the development of specific sorcerous methods such as the Gate Defense Protocol, used to bolster the stamina of rearguards and security detachments at selected gates.
