2102 September 10th 

Things have gotten out of hand… Last night I apparently walked all the way to head quarters with a knife in my hands barging into the headmaster’s office. Luckily, the second I entered I passed out… This morning I woke up in the hospital of therapy… We now know that it is because of the meteor…Luckily..  otherwise I would have to be taken into captivity…Many people have gone mad in all kinds of ways and it’s not safe anymore…. Last night we lost 5 people for uncertain causes and 2 from self committed murder… Both of the people who committed suicide where found near the meteor…

About 10% of the people have gone mad now…

2102 September 11th

Heavy thunderstorm are belching around the landscape and wailing winds are dancing around the pines…

If things are going to go on like this then it might mean that the tribe has to move…

2102 September 12th

 After I got released from the Mad Therapy we started looking at the fence around the north side and there are many holes…What could have made these holes Is what we wonder. And what if whatever made them got into the fenced area and could be lurking about now?!

The holes in the fenced area seem to be made by something with sharp claws and is probably resistant to electricity because the fence is powered with electricity and if the fence is touched you would get a really powerful shock that would almost kill a grown elephant.

2102 September 13th

 

We know that it is not a Red Scale because they die if they get even the slightest shock of electricity. And it can’t be a swamp wisp because they would have gone through the fence. Neither could it have been a Jagh Snake because they would not be able to survive the sound frequencies of all the people and machines, and we would have probably already spotted it.

2102 September 14th

I feel very sad because this place has been my home, our home for so long. When our ancestors found this place a hundred years ago, and when they built the fence around the area, they wanted it to be a safe place, a place where everybody lived in harmony.

But now, it is far from safe. People are going mad and there are holes in the fence which means that all monsters can come and go out. It’s no use really to have the fence now, we could just as well leave and go out into the unfenced area. The fenced area does not really grant any protection now.

A difficult decision now lies before the chief of the tribe: Should they leave or stay. Because if they left, they could maybe try and reach another civilization for there is fabled to be a city about 100 kilometers away. But would it be worth the risk? If they stayed here then all kinds of creatures would go into the fenced area and people are still going mad. And they are probably going mad because of the meteor that struck a few weeks ago. So, the further they get away from the meteor the better. But still, it was very unsafe out of the Fenced Area, But then again the Fenced Area did not provide any protection anymore  even though that many of the creatures are probably still unaware that there where holes in the Fenced Area. But it would only be a matter of time until everything would know and everything would sneak into the Fenced Area poisoning, eating and capturing the citizens of the Fenced Area.

 

2102 September 15th

The first snow has fallen. Everybody is shivering from the cold. Usually we would be more prepared but winter has hit so early this year. Me and the counsel are still thinking about what to do. Should we leave or should we not? We are thinking of holding a vote but up till now we have kept it a secret from the rest of the tribe that there is even holes in the fence and that we are in danger. So that is not a very feasible option.

The counsel has been thinking very hard but still it is difficult to come to a conclusion because everybody has different ideas and both of the options ( staying or leaving) are very dangerous. It is also rumored that there is another village with a population of 40 people about 20 kilometers away and so, the council sent 5 people to go in search of this fabled village in the hope that they could help them.

2102 September 16th

We have sent 5 people out to go in search of the fabled village towards the west. Hopefully they return.

The council is still trying to come to a decision. And the citizens are starting to think that something might be up besides an early winter.

2102 September 17th

We have come to a conclusion. We are going to go on the dangerous and rough and risky journey to try and find the fabled city 100 kilometers away. And, also, the people who we sent to go in search of the fabled village 20 kilometers away have not returned. We are going to have to break the news to the civilization tomorrow morning.

They have come to a conclusion but are aware of the dangers that lie in front of them. The head council is hoping that this is the right decision.  

2102 September 18th

We have told the civilisation. They where very surprised. We are setting off in 2 days..

 

Everybody is packing and there is a LOT to pack. The people who set off to find the fabled village have not returned meaning they are probably dead…. People suspect that the inhabitants of the village where not friendly with outsiders.

2102 September 19th

I have been working so much lately. We are packing a lot and we must also take away all the fences because we must keep mother nature clean. We don’t know how we are going to finish this in two days… Maybe we should have waited longer. I have been in charge of working on removing the cabins.

 

 

Temperatures have dropped to 1 degree in the day time. This makes the journey even more dangerous.

 

We have decided we are going to postpone the journey one day because it is tradition to have at least a one day mourning ceremony. Meanwhile we are still packing a lot.

 

The mourning ceremony takes place in a special sacred place at the edge of the Fenced Area. There always has to be a mourning ceremony when somebody dies. Because all souls are respectable and all souls deserve to be respected after death for then, their soul becomes neutral again.

 

2102 September 20th                                                                                                       

After the mourning ceremony we packed even more. For tomorrow morning we are going to set off.

 

 

They did not pick a great time to start because they were leaving on the day of the full moon and on full moon the Djagas came out. And since it was their first night it is very unfortunate but they did not really have much of a choice. It was not safe in the Fenced Area.

 

2102 September 21th

We set off early this morning. We lost 7 people during the first half of the journey. And more and more people seem to be going mad for short periods of time…

People are starting to wonder, could this madness be some kind of disease?

 

2102 September 22th

A murderer is stalking us!

People have been murdered over night  – could the legends of the mad murders that live in the marshes be true?
