Near the end of Reap, ten years after Emergence Day, Estana was attacked by the Locust. The city quickly fell to the Locust Horde and was set aflame, still burning two days later with the flames visible from the Cressy Escarpment. The victory brought the Locust one step closer to Ephyra and Jacinto City, giving them access to sewer lines and the metro stations underneath the city that led deeper into the Jacinto Plateau. The 3EE Sappers would lead a delaying action against the Locust outside the city by destroying roads and bridges and even tunneling underneath Locust tunnels and destroying them. The Locust would advance at least twenty klicks from the edge of Jacinto Plateau.
