ATTACK ON VASTIME
They waited for the vastimian satellites to be taken down; once word was received, the operation was underway. The first attack from the day before was comprised of solely First Circle members, set out to do a preliminary attack as well as establish some information before a full-fledged assault was to begin. For this operation? The full force of Shadow Fall's multiple circles was coming at Vastime's territories without mercy or remorse. Aiming to avoid initial detection by taking down surveillance systems from the sky, straight from demon world and by the droves of millions, nasty little demons emerged in Vastime airspace.
The thing about supernatural warfare was that supernatural means were generally necessary to appropriately combat their forces. If someone took a fight to Soul Society, Demon World, or even the Iramasha Plane? Naturally forces of incredulous power were necessary to be effective at all; the living realm did not necessitate the same type of warfare. In the living realm, the inhabitants were mere humans, vulnerable even to the very air they breathe, rather than empowered by it. For that reason, the air in Vastime would today be their biggest weakness.
Tens of thousands of demons all over the Vastime nation's coastlines releasing chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction. Nerve gas, blood agents, blister agents, bacterial and viral bio-agents of all kinds were being released, polluting the very air these people breathed. Shadow Fall welcomed attempts to deconstruct their territories and wrest away control from their lands; so long as these vermin were prepared to receive due pay, and the demons and hollows of Shadow Fall were more than open to the severest, most despicable actions available. It was all fair game in their eyes.
Of course things weren't limited to just polluting the air of nearly the entire continent; the air was only a portion of their invasive actions. Shadow Fall had seen Vastime as a threat for quite a long while now, and they made contingencies for this sort of scenario, in which their southern neighbors suddenly pointed their guns northward. Vastime's economy was one of their points of pride, trading, importing, and exporting various resources and products being a good portion. Naturally, Shadow Fall had influence with the corporate world themselves, especially in the agricultural sectors considering their hold of one of the largest agricultural suppliers in the world, the United States. So in preparation for any sort of funny business going around, the food supplied also held traces of energies to supplant their way through vastime households, never an amount enough to exceed the latent energy going around, but enough to at the very least take attention away from the toxic chemicals within the foods, masked as nonlethal growth hormones commonly used in farming. With the activation of the demonic energies, these "growth hormones" quickly excited into terrible poisons that ate away at the tissue of human organs, inhibit the transfer of hemoglobin in their arteries, and essentially destroy Vastimian culture at the heart of their nation: the people.
Aside from the actual chemical attacks laying waste to Vastime's air, food, and various other imported products, Shadow Fall was certain to be more hands-on with the other two primary targets of their attack: the legionary facilities. The demonic organisation held more than enough power in the underworld and black market to trade information ferociously and without regard to monetary expense, enabling the locations of a number of military facilities in Vastime to be targeted; naturally, this included the locations where one of Vastime's most fearsome units--The Legionaries--were based in. A number of units were sent to target these facilities to inhibit the ease of deployment for these forces, if not at the least blatantly drawing away their attention to defending them. But--if it weren't defended against? That just might be ideal.
