CNCR NodLogo.png The following is based on the Nod campaign of Tiberian Dawn and might contradict canon.
The Brotherhood has located a huge field of Tiberium in the area. The nearby village has laid claim to the field. Eliminate the villagers, as to prevent any infection of our own workers. GDI forces are reported to be minimal, so elimination of them is of secondary importance.
- Mission briefing

Sick and Dying is the seventh Nod mission in Tiberian Dawn.[1]

Background

Gabon had fallen under Nod control early during the struggle for Africa, but late became neutral again before then falling under GDI control. Cameroon had likewise shifted from Nod to GDI rule. Both countries featured significant amounts of Tiberium, which Kane intended to claim. Seth tasked the commander with clearing out villages near the Tiberium fields.

Events

Seth had taken a disliking to one of his subordinate commanders, whose successes against GDI were causing Kane to favour him, and who Seth now viewed as a competitor. In the mission briefing Seth intentionally lied, claiming that the villages were barely defended. In reality, they were in the vicinity of GDI bases which had been built to secure the area and protect some hospitals that the GDI had built to treat the infected.

However, it is ambiguous whether the Commander in question was sent to this battle or to a concurrent false flag operation in the Central African Republic. If the latter, it is unclear whether Seth attempted to deceive the other commanders. Regardless, the outcome was a clear Nod victory. Nod troops destroyed the village, the hospital and the GDI base.

Aftermath

With Gabon and Cameroon secure Nod forces were able to advance on Zaire.

With the Commander truly becoming Kane's favourite at Seth's expense, Seth planned to dispose of him once and for all with a completely suicidal assault on the Pentagon. However, Kane executed him before this attack could be carried out.

Having apparently stalled the threat of Tiberium sickness epidemics, Nod forces would create enormous Tiberium mining centres at Bertoua and Koula-Moutou. Enriched by these nearby huge Tiberium fields Nod forces would swiftly destroy the occupying GDI forces in Cameroon and Gabon, restoring Nod rule over these countries.

Trivia

  • Late into the mission, the GDI may send Humvees into the village and proceed to kill off villagers.
