ASPERMONT, W.L.- Negotiations between the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company and the enemy to end the Alt War are in process. Unfortunately, from the enemy’s end, their alt containing their part of the bargain is banned until somewhere in the late February. How… Typical. This does not mean that both sides' combat operations or shitflinging may end during the negotiations, SO ENJOY IT WHILE YOU CAN.
Some disappointment was expressed by members of the General Staff of the Army of Observation, who were keen to carry on the war and hound the enemy until the cheaters were brought to justice. The War Party of the Army of Observation however conceded to the reason that Meme deserved to be paid back and that it would be selfish to continue war for want of conquest AND IMPERIAL ADVENTURES.
Irishkaiser - I signed up for a food trip in my last days in Viet Nam. During the food trip, I met two Canadian(typical) solo travelers, you know the types. Eat Pray Love People(actually, one of them was only using Viet Nam as a stop to return home after attending a wedding in Thailand). First thing one of them asked me was “Oh you’re from the Philippines. How’s your president… Du-terte? Is it..?”
Instantly I respond with “Oh he’s great. We love him. He’s finally cracking down on a lot of the issues.”
She then proceeded to make awkward looks and disbelief “Oh… That’s good.”
I spotted it and I was like
“Let’s not mince words here, we all know what you really think. He’s this gung-ho, madman murdering everybody he doesn’t like”
“Yeah. Actually, yeah… I mean like… Throwing people out of helicopters doesn’t really make for good world leaders!”
More inane mundane conversation where I defended MY PRESIDENT. But the conversation instantly shifted to something about rule of law and that people shouldn’t just do that or some shit, coupled with self-depricating jokes about how Canada’s politics are boring.
I told the other Canadian who joined in.
“If I were to steal your phone, what would you do?”
The point of which, was to make her realize that not everyone was willing to follow the same morality and that force and violence are not only justified, but a necessary component of the rule of law. And she was like
“Well, you can have it… I’ll just get another phone!”
I chuckled a bit, but inside I was dying inside because she missed the point that I hypothetically stated that if I infringed on her person, her rights, her property, she would simply discard it and submissively allow potential invaders/tyrants/bad guys to dictate. Something something, hazy memory, I enjoyed the soup.
Another thing though. A married Filipino couple who were there to see the Chinese New Year was there as well. One of them asked like how long they’ve been together and they responded into 20 + years, to which they were both awed at how long a marriage lasts. Typical modern Westerners. Also, if you guys are ever in Saigon, go find the Mach House. It is Tres Bien. The chef there is superb and we had a great conversation about food and the strict French school of culinary arts.
He pointed out that he hated it when he asks how the food is and people are like “It’s OK…” and he like dies on the inside a little because he put so much heart and soul and effort into making dishes.

This trade run was almost called off for 30 minutes to an hour due to Shotbow having proxy-related issues(I.E., Shithost). Irishkaiser persevered however and managed to assemble a Corps-sized group.
A trade run planned to be long to get as much hands on experience and battlefield data as possible for the new Chasseur Inventory, designed by Irishkaiser and provided for by Silver. The trade run started near Grimdale, where Pittacus as usual, being an obsessive ex who keeps plotting my destruction would not stop trying to find me for the purposes of attention seeking or some shit. However, our scouts (GunOverdose, Pi and the others) were the most excellent scouts I have seen to date provided outstanding screening, skirmishing and foraging, frustrating not only Pittacus and some random schmucks, but other premiums as well. Like, seriously, that was excellent Scout work that deserves to be noticed.
The Corps defeated multiple geared premiums. Most of them were teams and bandit groups of no less than 3 at a time. I find it very weird that a lot of people in the South recently have been equipped. Sometimes with protection helmets and diamond swords. It should be noted that this development should be monitored with an increase of encounters with cheaters, as their names could be dupers or some shit. I don’t know. Another possible and more likely explanation is that they killed some hapless healers who could not fight back for bagels.
About three diamond swords were captured from the geared bandit premiums in the South.
Finally and most importantly, battlefield data was gathered on the Chasseurs to develop their function in the future.
There were 5 Squads of UTC fighting each other in Aspermont.
Pi Squad was defeated by Gun Squad, who in turn was defeated by Irish squad who got a draw with boogaert squad. Cyclone Squad achieved the art of war: winning but not fighting.
Alluding to the romantic Scottish liberation adventure of Bonnie Prince Charlie and of course we both share the same color headgear. I chose something softer on the ears since not all of you like JOCK MCGRAW AND HIS BAGPIPES.
Kills a couple of premiums near the Frostbain area as part of training for new recruits on unit disposition and scouting.
An old man was lagmastering all around two days ago when he was suddenly assaulted by the local weirdo. The old man was suffering a heart attack first before the local weirdo got him.
