Day 107 B.W. (before warp)
I have optimized our war fighting resources, and I fear it is to no avail. The evils of this land have infected every beast and most men with a vile blood lust.
Troops are battle fatigued, but we stand strong, I await intelligence reports from the field.
Day 260 B.W.
I have received word, that Navy is preparing ships, I have sent forth word, for my troops to retreat. Weather is horrid, stormy and dark. They should be able to mask their presence, safely under the cloak of darkness.
We have traveled to a strange time, crew is regrouping and preparing to board Navy ship in 2 weeks. I have given orders to gather supplies and raw materials. Scouts have been assigned to ships, and new recruits are finishing basic invasion training.
It is a long journey, my bought's of dealing with crew and my personal seasickness has left me worn and weary, and pissed as vinegar at the never-ending waves. Force 9 gale winds during day and adjusting body clocks to cope with watch system, leaves many crewmembers quick tempered.
A break in the monotony of the rolling waters, we were visited and amused by a family of 3 whales, playing but 100 feet away from ship. It was a welcome reprise, a chance to forget the present and our unknown future.
Caught in shackles of high-pressure system, it has taken great self-control to restrain my temper as our mileage has disappeared in 3 days of frustration.
Land found, I have sent forward my scouts with small teams to set communications points on highest peak, seen from here, and furthest viewable from there.
Scouts have been reporting of many great beasts scattered through this land.
A direct attack fell 3 men from 1st fleet. We may need to wait for navigation to gather all information from scouts, to form a plan of attack on this land.
Positions have been abandoned. Damages have been conservative, but we are best to salvage ourselves and replan our infiltration onto these lands. Task force has been dispatched to recover remaining troops in field.
We will regroup and rest at camp until all available information is in.
I must pick men for picket duty and a light mine layer. My kamikaze warriors are ready and waiting to be sent forth.
