Year 4, Day 32,
I have stumbled upon this journal at the site of a famous battle that took place over four years ago. The battle took place just three weeks after our new town, Harper City, was founded. The previous entries lead me to believe the journal belonged to a young boy named Jari, who sadly died in the battle.
From what I remember, a large contingent of the Emporer's scouts found our location. They threatened to tell the emporer, who undoubtably would wage war on us if we didn't comply with their demands. I won't go into the nature of these demands, but we knew that dispite our obedience, they would never hold to their side of the agreement. Jari and about a dozen other settlers followed the scouts back into the woods, and ambushed them before they could return to the capitol city of Ordinan.
Years have passed without more than the occasional scout, whom we always dispose of.
Life is getting better here. The land is harsh, plagued with steep hills and little flat land.
We have begun flattening this land in an effort to expand our new civilization. Fortunately, our people are skilled at molding the Earth, and as we grow, we will be able to continue our growth at a faster pace.
Farming has been critical to our survival. But as we have stabalized, we now find a need to expand our industrial interests. Until next time, farewell.
Year 4, Day 49,
I presented this journal to our leader. He has suggested we make it a public journal that others can add to as time goes on. Hopefully these entries will serve as a reminder of our struggles and successes, as well as motivation for our future.
