Dipping into the Fiction now, I want to introduce you to Follvirkeland's first Capital city, with it's name stolen from my previous journal. New Uniden. Short history lesson, New Uniden was the first colony established in the continent of Euphemia by the overseas nation of Mervey. (Think Norway) New Uniden grew prosperous due to an overwhelming demand in the logging industry, creating surplus in the business of export. Hundreds of years later, we see this:
It's not as big as one might think it would, but being an old city, it had it's limits on development. But it was a lovely city, with a rich history and the seat of government, until one fateful day when things changed for thousands.
At 3 o'clock in the afternoon, with thousands of people just wrapping up a work day in downtown, a 7.9 Quake struck the city. All of downtown suffered damage along with the rest of the metro area. Scientists even feared the nearby mountain might erupt, but thankfully stayed still. Society inside the city was turned to chaos, the government unsure of leadership. The Chancellor although, made it safely aboard a flight out of the nearby airport, escaping east to Follvirkeland's Financial capital, Hinali.
What was left was crumbling buildings that search and rescue crews combed through for survivors. People then returned to gather their belongings or salvage what was left of their homes. The slow but steady cleanup began, but was interrupted shortly after when Follvirkeland reported one of their military bases had been breached. The following events depicts what happened to New Uniden as Government agents tracked down what was stolen from the Military:
Overwatch: Focus grid 240057. Thermal's picked up a massive spike, headed in the direction of the docks.
Hunter 2-1: Docks, roger.
Overwatch: All units, be advised. Package is heading for the docks in an attempt to leave the country.

Hunter 2-2: Hey he's going for some-*static*

Now that you know what has become of the old capital city, we can move on.
However this isn't the end of the action. Knowing me, more is to be had.
Next we will see what has become of this situation, and witness the reaction as the
might of Follvirkeland bears down on who was behind the destruction of a city.
