Girl from Ildoken

I didn’t want it to end up this way. Things had been falling apart rapidly, We’d grown too big, too fast, people at both ends had been pulling and as the poet said “The center cannot hold,”
I knew exactly when it had started, and I knew with the cold, clear knowledge of hindsight when it had gone critical. I did my best to hold things together at my end, and our other leaders did the same, but we had too many chiefs, not enough indians, and simply lacked the resources to hold out against a growing and successful opposition. We got greedy, our eyes got big and we saw our own capabilities through rose-colored glasses and reaped the ashes of our lack of vision.
So now we head back to Empire, battered and defeated, but far from broken. We will go back to what we do best, we will rediscover our fundamental skill at the game, we will fight smart, we will fight hard. I will make the long trek from -10.0 to -1.99 and maybe higher.
To our friends, and those that worked with us, our thanks, to our enemies, well fought and well won, enjoy your rewards. To all involved good luck, fly dangerous, score kills.
