Journal Entry 1.0

I have hidden since discovering that our town has been abandoned. I am unsure of what to do at this point. I suppose I should eventually go outside, maybe figure out what to do next even, but instead I continue to sit inside of my home. Is it even really *my* home? Or does it belong to then?

Game Plan

Okay everyone. The getting certain buildings ready thing. Who's in? The bowling alley was mentioned. The Rec Center. One of the bigger houses over on the rich-ass street. Somewhere on the farm, maybe. Anyone else have suggestions? And who's going to be helping? Does anyone want to be responsible for one of the checkpoint buildings and organize from there?

Ping here and we can figure it out.

Valley Forge

Being here reminds me of the war. It's a strained feeling, tense like muscles drawn taut and held past their limits. Dark days and mistrust, that much is identical no matter how many differences there may be. I've never been an avid reader, though I like a good book now and then. Most don't stick with me, they didn't when I was younger and they sure don't as I get older each day. Still, some sections catch and take hold, and I'm grateful for it. In particular, 'Valley Forge', a book about one lost base of Marines, not so much about Vietnam as the people it touched, both soldiers and their families. I don't trust my memory for accuracy of this sort often, but here it's solid as bedrock.

Private Journal Entry

Day three. The word is that you've taken over, that this was never ended. So, where does that leave me? I worked for you and I still will. Whatever you want me to do. I know if you're out there you can read this - I always read their's. So tell me - what do you want me to do? Just let me know.

TIME UPDATE

Date: Tuesday, September 30th 2008

Weather: The day starts off clear, but the clouds soon start to gather on the horizon, looming and black. The atmosphere becomes very close as the storm approaches and the rain starts around 3pm. It's heavy and constant, a sheet of water interspersed with episodes of hail. By 4pm nobody will want to be outside and anyone caught away from their home may wish to stay where they are.

Events: None of note, it seems that the town really is just being left alone...

If you have any events or anything going on which you think warrants a mention in the time update, please let us know!
