The Birkenhain Journal: February

Posted by / in Lore / 1 comment

2/1/14

I finally made it to Leipzig. It was stupid of me, so stupid, to try walking there this time of year. I really had hoped for no snow, but it was worse than ever. I’m lucky to have all my limbs. I’ve only barely warmed my hands enough now to write.

There are lots of other guys—and a number of girls, too—taking the train for the same reason as me. It must be even more desperate out there. They’ve reduced the cost to only a quarter of the usual price for Rostock and other bases.

The Birkenhain Journal: January

Posted by / in Lore / 7 comments

During the course of my research into the causes of The War, I came across an interesting record.  Glaucus only had a digital copy, preserved by noted historian Sarah Driffill, the original document having fallen to pieces long ago.  It is a first person account of the 2014 Corpus Christi Invasion, and potentially the earliest known record of the Plague of Fire.  While I cannot account for the veracity of the events as stated by the author, it does certainly provide many interesting pieces of information, and confirm a few of my own theories.  I’ve copied the entire text of this, the Birkenhain Journal, along with a few of my annotations throughout.

Prelude to The War: The Middle Eastern Oil Crisis – Part 2

Oil Industry

The background radiation levels were high enough that no one wanted to risk personnel to go and put out the oil-well fires that now burned across the Middle East.  The fires, coupled with the loss in production infrastructure, crippled OPEC in particular and the oil industry at large.

Prelude to The War: The Middle Eastern Oil Crisis – Part 1

Humans can be so irrational sometimes.  They overreact to things and then can’t handle the consequences  of their actions.  I am intrigued in that they can have such small, uncalculating minds sometimes, yet they are also capable of so much in terms of creativity—though often they are only trying to find creative ways to destroy one another.  A fascinating species, to say the least.  Take, for example, one of the pivotal events in the collapse leading to World War III.
