  1. The Saga Initiative “3….2…..1… and we have TAKE OFF!” A cheer could be heard within the command center of flight center. The initiatives first steps towards expanding its reach. The Thrope class scouting ship, it was designed by Chief Engineer Lucas Thrope. It is a multi-purpose scouting ship capable of holding its own in a fight while being able to scout and scan moons and planets with the ability to launch drones for scouting purposes as well. Armed with twin-linked Vulcan mini guns for combat and planetary scanning devices and drones. Ben and Lucas also had spoken on other designs stemming from this ship. Adaptability is something the pair wanted within the Saga’s navy. They had plans for a new ship coming as well. But they had to focus on other things currently. Back Council room, Ben walks in with a grin on his face. Exciting news and the plans for the future were booming in his ear and as he looked on his SI Pad he couldn’t stop from smiling. “Well well, do I have good news for y’all. We have successful launch of the scout ship and successful news on the mineral we found in the mines. The material is extremely resilient, it deflects regular ammunition and is only dented by a single armor piercing bullet. Explosive testing had destroyed the plate but it was only an one inch plate. The material however is extremely heavy, it’s heavier than lead. I want opinions how how this should be used. Should we put it towards armor plating on our ships, tanks, and soldiers? Or should we put it towards civilian uses?” Ben paused for a moment allowing the group to vote, the group voted unanimously in favor of the military side for the material as they saw it hard to not favor it as it would give them an extreme advantage. Actions: Scouting the nearby moon of Noctum-1. (1 AP) Mining of the mineral to build a surplus. (1 AP) Building of a new factory that can produce bigger ships. Equipped with machines and minerals to equip the new mineral armor plating. (2 AP). Orion: Population: 108,500
  2. The Saga Initiative “God it even wore down the diamond-edged saw? Grab that little piece of the mineral and let's start testing it. We need to figure out what an break it. Obviously we now have found a material stronger than diamond which is amazing in it's own right.” Doctor Needler was amazed that barely anything worked against this material. She tried everything, Lasers, steel and even diamond edge tools barely worked. Aubrey looked at the material and was amazed by its composition. It was harder than any material on Earth and this was so exciting to her. The applications that could be used for this was absolutely ridiculous. New picks, new drill tips, new armor plating for troops and vehicles. They just needed a way to get more of it. Aubrey and Ben both agreed how this was the Initiatives new priority. Back in Orion, the static radio heard is new. It isn't from anyone on the initiative either. Engineers scramble to boost the signal but it is to no avail. It is only static and louder static. Thorpe attempts to clarify the static by adjusting the frequency and then adding a signal booster to it. Then they would attempt adjust it until they got an understandable broadcast, and then they would try and communicate with them. With the factory ready to produce the scouts ships and the launch pad ready, production begins immediately on one scout ship. Ben believed they needed to find what else was out in their system before expanding their reach. Actions: Extensive research continues on the new material (2 AP) Attempting to raises the clarity and range on the Comm Systems to contact that signal (1AP) Construction of one scout ship and preparation for launch. (1AP) Orion: Population: 104,500 Military: 15,000
  3. The Saga Initiative June 28th, 2108 “HEY! YOU TWO WHAT IS THE POINT OF THAT!” A middle-aged women stood there looking across the lab at two young scientist fighting each other, she directed two of her protection force to go break it up and bring them over here. As the were grabbed they were brought over to her, the two men stood around 6 feet tall which was giant to the 5’2 doctor. She reached up and slapped both of them on the back of the head, “You two idiots. I get this is frustrating but keep your head on straight, we can’t get through this without each other. You know who I am, i’ll respect everyone until you do stupid crap like that while on my time.” She looked at the two glaring into their saddened eyes, “Look. The council has agreed for us to move on from the project for now as it’s ineffective. We are going to be moving onto this new element that was discovered in the mine, and we are going to be working on developing new types of spaceships. It’s going to be the new navy.” She looked at them both now smiling and they both smiled back. This scientist Dr. Aubrey Needler, was somewhat old for the initiative’s standards but she was extremely valuable to their efforts. She was an expert in astrophysics and quantum physics. She was what many considered a freak with smarts. She was a one of a kind scientist and someone who was invaluable in the eyes of Ben and the others, which made her the top of the list for the IPG. She was extremely active in the field and always wanted to be hands on more than in the lab. It made her liked by a lot of the IPG and the leaders of the council. She was rarely a drain on resources, but that was about to change and Ben was ready to grant that change. She hoped in the all-terrain land rover with Ben and Zach along with two IPG agents. They were followed by two other vehicles, one was a transport truck carrying soldiers and scientist and the other was a supply truck carrying mining laser, electromagnets, and other things to test the property of the mineral. They would perform basic geologic mineral test at first to determine it’s properties and then go deeper in depth with it’s testing. Trying to determine a use for it, weather it is used for ship building material, new form of protective strong metal, or used for weapons. This was exciting to all, it was the first steps to new discoverers that could lead to some many breakthroughs as well. Back at Orion.. Chief Engineer Lucas Thrope was standing next to a plot of land that was filled with construction workers and machines moving materials around to build up a factory. Men lifted up steel beams with the Exo-suits they had. This was a factory for the construction of scouting ships for the local planets and moons nearby. It was going to be a breakthrough for The Initiative having multiple colonies or bases throughout the system. It was exciting and scary to think about. Actions and Stats Building a factory/ship construction yard for scouting ships (2 AP) Researching the new element found within the mining system (1 AP) Building a new launching pad for ships to take off into the atmosphere from (1 AP) Orion Population: 102,500 Civilians: 90,000 Military: 12,500 Mining Network Under construction: Scout Ship Factory Launch Pad Research: Researching the new element found within the mining network.
  4. The Saga Initiative Ben stepped out onto the balcony of his house. The governor's mansion some would call it but it was no bigger than a modern day two story home with a tall iron fence around and a gate blocking the walkway up towards his door. It was guarded by a contingent of Initiative guards, it seemed like a lot to a kid who just turned twenty but was appointed as the leader of the Initiative by the board.. Before Ben was selected he was a college student, about to end his fourth semester of school. He still does not have a clue on why he was selected, a lot of the people on the initiative were either extremely smart engineers and scientist, or soldiers, or younger age families whose sole purpose was pretty self explanatory. For them to reproduce with their superior genetic qualities that would increase the survival rate of the colony. But then again here was Ben, who was never told why or how he was selected or what was his ‘quality’ that led them to believe he was fit to run a colony. He couldn’t worry about it, but it has been a year since the last contact so worrying was what he was suppose to do. He plugged in his favorite classic playlist he had downloaded onto his Initiative touchpad which was a combination between Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Post Malone, and so on. He got to work on the planning of the next steps the colony would take. It had been a little over six months since the last Grand Marshall was killed in a rock slide during a scouting expedition. Ben had let others prove that they were worthy before they had any choosing of the sort. When it boiled down to it the race was between Colin “One Eye” Smith and Zach Johnson. Colin was a grizzled mercenary who had a background in Black Ops and was a Navy Seal, he got the nickname ‘one eye’ from an assassination attempt on an african warlord. Zach was green compared to Colin but to say he was inexperienced was foolish, he was apart of the world renown SAS which some would consider tougher to get into than the Seals. Ben had a tough choice to make. Either one would be a capable leader, but he’d lose a mentor in one of them. He had sealed his vote awaiting for the other four councilors to pick. Leaders: Chief Engineer Lucas Thrope Doctor Aubrey Needler Chief Economist Logan Dial Chief P.E. Advisor Jared Smith As Ben open each and every envelope it came down to a tie between the two, Ben had his mind made up. But he wanted to keep the other one involved in some sort of way so the loser of the vote would lead the planetary exploration and protection outfits for the Initiative’s HVTs. Ben decided that Zach would lead the military and Colin would lead the protection outfit and P.E. units in unison with Jared. Military: Zach wanted the military of the Initiative to be top notch and organized. He wanted them split into divisions on what they would specialize in. Engineers, aviation, first contact, survey and protection crews. He would also begin organizing an elite special forces unit, one similar to the SAS and SEALS. His ambitions were big right now considering the lack of military equipment they had compared to what they had on Earth but most these men were professionals they knew had to handle themselves. Actions: Survey crews sent out to find resources further out from the already surveyed zones. Sent with mining equipment to establish a resource node if they discovered anything. (3 AP) Scientist begin looking into reverse engineering the Ark’s Jump Drive so that they may reach home or nearby Galaxies. (1 AP)
  5. OOC: Username: Look Left Skype: You have it Ideas and Suggestions?: Be active and ask for help when you need it. RP (Humans only, I apologize.): Colony Name: The Saga Initiative First Planet Type: Continental Planet, mountainous coast line, and reversely of the poles as the closer to the pole the hotter it is and the closer to the equator the colder it is. History: (Assuming it's a bit of a custom nation.) The Saga Initiative was founded by the wealthy and the powerful of the world. The people come from every country in the world. Many of the people selected to be on the initiative were chosen from their genetic profile and their profession. Many were offered to leave their families peacefully and have them taken care of or other things might sway their option. The Initiative had built several colony ships, but only one was able to launch when it was time, the Capital ship of the Initiative the SIS Divergent. It was launched from the island of Cyprus towards Alpha Centarui. After the flash had come and gone the crew was excited. But they weren't where they needed to be. They missed their mark, and nothing came up on their communications array and radios where silent. A giant earth like planet was ahead of them and maybe it would be the new hope the Initiative was looking for, and the colonist descended into the planet below. Map location: (Remember, fill a square and send it to me privately.) Honestly if you want to throw me in a random location go ahead.
  6. The Noctum Republic The council chambers where bustling with members arguing and some crying at the new that had been reported by Logan to the council. It was a giant uproar, this was the first time that Wyatt had faced any controversy during his time as the Keeper. Some called for him to step down, and some called for him to even be killed because of this mistake. Wyatt relied on Logan and Jared for most scouting information to take place before he made his decisions, especially big decisions like this. However, he was not about to throw his two most trusted advisors to the wolves. He was the leader, he had to take responsibility but stepping down would not be the course of action he took. He stood from his seat, it was located at the end of the room on an elevated surface where he was able to look out upon the councilmen and it allowed his voice to carry to them. He barked out towards the bickering, mostly old men, “SILENCE! You men are bickering like little children. I will not have it in these chambers. If you wish to continue or fight with me about this, I will have you removed for disrupting what we have come to discuss. We just lost over 200 people; and you wise, old-men want to bicker between yourselves instead of finding the solution to our problem?” he scratched his chin and let out a deep sigh as he shook his head. “I thought we would be better than this, better than what these council meetings where like when my father was here. Many of you backed me to change that culture and so far I have, In the case of adversity, you revert back to what was not working. It is sickening to me, I am ashamed that I did not plan better for this colony. I figured there was no way to our colony but through our city or by sea.” he’d back up, taking his seat, bowing his head and shaking it yet again. “We cannot let this distract us from the army that is still sitting near our doorstep. If our men see us bickering and fighting then that will simply lower moral as if it is not already low from witnessing utter annihilation and death.” Wyatt would raise his head and sit back into his chair peering out among the crowd. All shocked by his words, all stunned that he was actually right and a solution had to be found. One man, William Napoli, one of the oldest councilmen and in the city of Nocte Caelum stood up and spoke, “I have known many of you since you were born, I have known your families and some I know your grandfathers. Many would think I would agree with certain members of this council who have backed me on countless occasions but on this matter The Keeper is right. He has been working on solutions to help prepare our defenses even better, he has even began to take even extreme measures.” He looks to Wyatt and nods waiting to get the approval nod back, as Wyatt grants his approval, William clears his throat, “He has enacted the Engineers to begin working on a device that can be used to shoot spear sized ammunition at a distance to a highly accurate range. It would be able to kill multiple enemies at once and be able to pierce armor.” William gazed upon the crowd as they seemed intrigued. “Wyatt’s defensive planning is what I have never seen before. His plan for building the extra layers of walls basically renders the use of ladders useless against our defenses. It allows us to put out a very large amount of fire down range towards the enemy. Which we all know is very tough to kill. From previous experiences. This is all I have, but I am throwing my full support behind Keeper Wyatt. As should you.” William would sit down as many in the room would applauded. The meeting was soon concluded afterwards. Everyone filing out, in higher spirits.

  7. The Noctum Republic Nocte Caelum’s air was growing with a tension that could snap at any second. It could be expected with a city that was always preparing and always expecting another attack from the monstrous and glowing army. That at some points could seem invincible at some points. But they prevailed one attack, hopefully they could prevail another one the leaders and military believed they could. Final defensive preparations were about to start construction, and full focus would be on these preparations. An attack on the capital city of the Noctum would be costly. As the engineers smiled and had large quantities of stone moved in from the quarry for their next plan. Where the palisade was constructed to slow the advance of an enemy as placed in a strategic fashion to where a stone wall could be placed, one that was bigger than the palisade but smaller than the main wall. It would make breaching the inner walls that much tougher and increase the time the enemy could reach Nocte Caelum. The first wall would be manned by mainly well-trained militia, as well as veterans who would act as the officers of the militia. Those veterans however knew the militia well, they trained along side them and taught them what they needed to know to be effective. Wyatt, Logan, and Jared all were prepared for what that thought would happen very soon the Nocte Caelum. Especially believing that they were the only path to their recently established city. Later that day… Logan and the Tempestas led Wyatt below the council chamber where very few people had gone before outside of the Tempestas. Wyatt had not seen this room since his leave from the Tempestas during his late teens before he pursued a chance at leadership. He sighed, as he watched Logan and the Tempestas prepare the upcoming rituals. These rituals are how the Tempestas came to be named. He hoped it would not need to come to this, he had run through this situation in his head a million times. Many of those times ended in a bunch of people dying in a fiery death. If it needed to come, he would have to allow it. But until then, they would only prepare. Actions: Medium stonewall between the palisade and the main wall.

  8. The Noctum Republic Wyatt looked upon the people from the wall Nocte Caelum was bustling within, the militia were running their daily drills alongside the regular army as many others lined the wall keeping vigilant and wary of the Glowing Army as they had not approached in nearly a year now. They still need to be prepared for an attack. Wyatt had ordered his engineers to add a palisade in front of the wall in hopes to slow down the approaching armies advance even more. As it would give them another obstacle to clear, and give the soldiers time to get more shots off. However, in the new town. Construction on several things would start. This town would be the center point of trade with new races. First they would need to develop an economic base. Construction would start on three areas that the Republic needed and would help drive the economy of the new town. A farm, a mine, and a large forge. Actions: Create a palisade in front of the stone walls of Nocte Caelum (1Ap) Farm being built at new town (2AP) Mine starts construction at new town (1AP) Large Forge starts construction at new town (1AP) Nocte Caelum Population: 1,510 Assortment of Weapons- 400 Shields - 400 Bow/Arrows Set - 400 Matchlock Rifles - 300 Iron Tools (For Farming) Reinforced Stone Walls with embrasures Engineers Workshop Lumber Camp 3 Farms - Currently Produces 1,500 Food 4 Silos - Currently Stored Food; 1,910(Maximum; 4,000) 240 Wooden Homes - Currently Holds 1,510 (Maximum; 2,400) Military Five Tempestas (Armed with Sword, Matchlock.

  9. The Noctum Republic Nocte Caelum: Inside the city, the militia’s training could be heard through Nocte Caelum. The remaining Tempestas acting as their drill sergeants, everyone of the militia moved with a motivated purpose; they knew their survival would depend on how well they trained and how well they fought against these creatures. They looked up to the Tempestas, everyone of them had heard of how fiercely they fought against them. Even though they knew none of these fought with against them, these five were the veterans and most experienced with the order, so the others must of learned the fierceness from them. Wyatt smiled at the progress he saw that the training was making, he had called for Logan to meet him on the walls. As they had to discuss the strategy and other possible defenses that they may want to have before the next assault which Wyatt believed would be soon. As Logan approached the walls, he could see Wyatt pacing back and forth while staring out towards the direction of the Glowing Ones’ camp. “Wyatt you need to relax. We are making good progress. I know you’re concerned about risking the lives of your citizens; especially after the last attack. You are not to blame, Sir.” Logan would stare out into the wide-open field that gave Nocte Caelum such a wide-open view of everything. As Wyatt joined Logan leaning against the battlements, “We could have our engineers and spare citizens dig deep trenches, or we could focus on reinforcing the walls. Or I was thinking, why not have something that can launch stones or other large objects towards the enemy. If it landed or rolled them over, it would have the ability to wipe out a considerable size with one shot. Also in the future, we could use it to break through walls if we ever go on the offensive.” Wyatt adjusted the long sword on his hip. “Or a bigger version of a bow, that could be aimed. It would swivel, and be drawn back by something. It would fire a large bolt. It’d be extremely accurate and could help take down whatever comes our way easier. Who knows what they are bringing next, we’ve seen a lot of crazy stuff of late. What do you think Logan?” he would turn his head looking towards his friend . Logan would nod his head, “I would agree those could be very helpful for us. If anything, it would take us awhile to find out how to make them and to produce them. So if we were to go through with this. We would need to start it immediately.” He looked down towards Wyatt and nodded reaffirming his friend, by placing his hand on his shoulder and giving him a shake of the hand. “We will survive this. You know us Tempestas have our rituals for the Sacred Flame if it turns awful. It is a last resort though.” He’d then turn and walk off as Wyatt shook his head in agreement. Defensive Plans: Jared and Logan had spent awhile considering the best defensive plan, they had finally found one they think would work well. The matchlock regulars would split into pairs for the Embrasures, they would rotate after one or the other would fire giving them time to reload and still keep up a consistent rate of fire. The archers however would be kept on the main battlements, but this was in trust with how accurate each archer could be. The swordsman's would be on the wall as well however incase they reached the wall. They were still armed with matchlock rifles, and would use those until the enemy reached the wall if they reached the wall. The militia would be placed at the remaining Embrasures in groups of three to give the same consistency of the regulars. The other militia that couldn’t fit on the embrasures, would fill in where need be. Which was estimated to be about fifty. Those fifty would retrieve supplies and ammo for the troops on the wall, they would also be used to carry off the dead or wounded. If they needed to replace a unit on the wall or near an embrasures they would. Actions: 1 AP Training the new militiamen further. 2 AP working on researching catapults or ballistas 2AP working on a bigger boat that doesn't tip over when hit by waves and a way for it to be powered by sails Nocte Caelum: Population: 1,210 Assortment of Weapons- 400 Shields - 400 Bow/Arrows Set - 400 Matchlock Rifles - 300 Iron Tools (For Farming) Reinforced Stone Walls with embrasures Engineers Workshop Lumber Camp 3 Farms - Currently Produces 1,500 Food 4 Silos - Currently Stored Food; 2,400 (Maximum; 4,000) 240 Wooden Homes - Currently Holds 1,510 (Maximum; 2,400) Military Five Tempestas (Armed with Sword, Matchlock.

  10. The Noctum Republic “Ready… Aim… Fire!” A Tempestas officer would command of the archers and matchlock infantry rained projectiles upon the glowing armies advance. The bullets and arrows pierced the glowing army but to no effect. A lone soldier, a young nineteen year old, watched his arrow pierce a glowing soldiers head and the soldier dropped dead. “The head.. The head being destroyed is what kills them.” he yelled out. The Tempestas officer near him repeated what he said yelling it out, as the shouts could be heard along the walls. The tempestas officers were fearless in their fighting, it inspiring the other troops. But this fierceness they fought with, would eventually lead them to their death. Nearly wiping out the order as a whole. Logan wasn’t there, he was securing the colony. But he would’ve been damn proud of the way they fought. The fierceness led to the Republic hitting them back with their might. They fought off the Glowing Ones, but it wouldn’t be for long. They knew soon enough they would strike again. Wyatt had an exhausted look on his face, the fighting, keeping the citizens calm, and most importantly dealing with the death caused by the recent fight. As Wyatt looked through the streets where the bodies lay, where the wives or mothers of the dead soldiers weep over their loses. He gathers reports from the remaining commanding officers and the engineers that he had called. “Men, I want ideas on how to stop the high casualty rate when they did not even reach our walls.” He stared each of them in eye, a stare many of them have not seen before. This was a fiery dark stare, a motivated yet angry one. The master engineer spoke out with a hesitation behind his words, “Sir we could.. Uh… modify the walls with silt wide enough to shoot out of accurately but small enough to where the enemy projectiles couldn’t hit us in return. Would offer us a very big defensive advantage. But we’d have to work quickly.” The engineer would look down after he spoke. Then Jared spoke, “Sir, I also think this is the best plan of action. Also to train more civilians with matchlocks, as well as recalling Logan and the other remaining Tempestas. I need them sir. We need them. They are our best fighters. Best marksmen. I hate risking their extinction however, the Republic needs them to keep our flame burning.” Jared stood their looking his old friend, and leader in the eyes meeting his fiery glare. Wyatt’s stare had met every in the circles eyes. Each nodding as they met his stare, he had the stare of a leader, a stare that no one would forget. “I have already sent for Logan, straight after we pushed back the army. Jared, we are going to gather the militia as well as train our swordsmen with matchlocks. Right now, we need people who are willing to learn and fight. Band together in the times of our Republic’s greatest needs and destroy this army.” his gaze would turn towards the grand engineer, “Do not be hesitant with me, I placed you in this position for a reason. You’re smart, be confident and talk to me like you are. Proceed with modifying the walls with embrasures, we also must strengthen our walls, gather the stone masons and the extra stone we have from the quarries as well as extra wooden logs that will be able to support the walls from this side. You’re all dismissed. You know what we have to do.” He would turn and walk back towards his house, comforting those who needed it. Actions: Training Militiamen and swordsmen how to use a matchlock. (1AP) Modifying the walls with embrasures, allowing the soldiers to shoot the matchlocks out while they protect from projectiles from being shot or thrown in.

  11. The Noctum Republic The Council was pleased with Wyatt’s progress. With voting coming up for the next Governor, Wyatt was clearly in the lead. No one could possibly touch him, the council loved him and so did the people. There would be a select few who were upset with that, and Wyatt could live with that. He knew what the people wanted, and he had the solution to the upcoming problem they might face. A group of volunteers, consisting of farmers, carpenters, and craftsmen began preparing to set out and set up a new town towards the east of Nocte Caelum. They would be accompanied by ten Tempestas, 30 swordsmen and ten archers to protect them. They would first establish a tent camp, before establishing permanent housing and resource gathering. An old engineer would approach Wyatt with the idea of constructing an Engineer’s Workshop. So that the engineers of the city might have space to craft new ideas and perfect new research ideas that Wyatt or anyone might come up with. The idea of this intrigued Wyatt greatly and the start of construction started right away. Action Points: Colonization to the East, with the setting up of tent camps and patrols to protect to civilian population.

  12. The Noctum Republic Wyatt, Jared, and Logan all had a scowl on their faces as the Naga had left the room, the meeting was more than a disappointment in both of their eyes. The Naga had insulted them, but from what the trio picked up the Naga could not be fought effectively or without heavy casualties. The Republic had nothing to offer an underwater civilization. The trio had agreed that the Tempestas would keep an eye on the coastal provinces for colonization. Now that they knew that other intelligent races were around them. The Republic had a full-shift in attitude. They had to be prepared for what might be taken from them. Grand Marshal Jared Freuh and Grand Master Logan Smith were both Wyatt’s closest advisor and friends. He trusted them completely, and when the Naga insulted him they had calmed him down and told him to be patient. They pushed for him to let them train the military and prepare for anything that might come from this. Which is exactly what he granted them to do. More intensive military training for the 315 offical Republic military. Leading the training would be the Tempestas, they would act as the drill sergeants. As the training went on Wyatt looked on from the city walls. He did glanced back to the bustling city that Nocte Caelum. He knew however how soon the Republic would need to expand. They had two places close to them that could sustain a growing population and help grow the Republic’s resources. He worried immensely about what was happening with the disappearances of the citizens and how even 24/7 patrols could not stop them. Then the Naga had shown themselves, the Snake people that could breath underwater and never got cold. He had to be prepared in-case Noctum had to fight. He bowed his head and mumbled a few words asking for guidance from the Eternal Flame. When finished he arose, he let out a sigh of relief and smiled. “We will be ready.” Military Training continues for the whole military, preparing for combat that feels like it is on the horizon.

  13. The Noctum Republic For half a year the Republic had not made any major moves, it is if they stood in time. Wyatt was stricken with a sickness and was bedridden for months. He had recovered his strength to lead the people, but he was now stuck to walking with the aid of a cane. “Sir we have reports of more missing citizens.. This time some of them are from our military's ranks. We are also positive they are not deserters.” the councilmen would step back, as Wyatt signaled him to stop and he cleared his throat, looking at the group of councilmen. “You men worry to much, I am positive that we can solve this. This is concerning and we are going to be stepping up our military forces training, recruitment, and patrols on the street. However, you councilmen, seem to have no faith in my ability to do this.” he would cough a little bit into his sleeve and he would lean on his finely crafted cane. The group would all then disperse into different directions so they could go handle their appropriate businesses. After a brief conversation with Jared, Wyatt had come to the conclusion to increase the number of active military members. By 75 people. Throughout training five would be selected and invited into the Tempestas. (1Ap) Street Patrols would increase, more consistent and frequent patrols would happen as well. (2 AP) The construction of an additional silo is started as well.

  14. The Noctum Republic Wyatt looked out upon his city, people were bustling about the Springtime brought forth a new wave of energy and a bunch of new births and seeing new mothers cradle the newborns made Wyatt smile. He knew work had to be done. A new craftsmen had been brought up with the recent group of teenagers. Leatherworkers, would craft leather armor capable of being able to protect soldiers on the frontlines from some attacks but not many. The lumber camp was to be finished within the next season Wyatt had a clever solution for what could be done about the shortage in wood. But with this he would need large amounts of stone. A quarry was marked out on the outskirts of the city to be constructed. The Tempteas would not attempt to contact the snake people, they seemed dangerous from afar. They would mark down the settlement spot on a makeshift map and return to Nocte Caleum.

  15. The Noctum Republic The cold winter air pierced through the streets of Nocte Caelum, most citizens were huddled by controlled fires in the street set up by the Tempteas. Those at work though, worked hard and vigorously. Titus had his military, drilling in the cold. Shouts from him could be heard as it carries on the wind, “WE NEVER KNOW THE CONDITIONS WE WILL BE FIGHTING IN. THIS WILL ONLY MAKE YOU BOYS TOUGHER. NOW MARCH!” Titus follows the last rank as they march through the streets outside the walls to drill formations and do physical training that Titus prides himself on. Wyatt smiled as he saw his Marshall pushing the men to their best ability. With the Hunters finding some extra meat, it is distributed to families before it expires because of the full food storage. In other news, the hunters who gathered leather and food are thanked personally by Wyatt. The leather would be stored for a later use. With the wood shortage becoming a real issue, the Senate would vote to start the construction of the woodcutting camp that would also be responsible for replanting and maintaining the trees near the city. (1 AP for Camp) The Bees are left alone for now, but they are monitored closely by herbalist. (1 AP) The Tempteas are sent on a scouting mission towards the north, they would be looking for any resources or colonizable areas for the Republic to capitalize on.
