Settling Into the New Job

Being the new Field Commander isn't exactly awesome. Lots of boring shit to deal with. Gotta keep briefing the soldiers on how to best kill an Indoctrinated, keep drilling them with the new Hammer of Thor weapons, gotta keep signing requisition forms, and on and on and on.

It's really, really boring.

So, even though there's a bit of a dimensional bleeding issue, only the Science Department's getting assets shifted to working on it. There's only so much that my men can do to deal with the matter. We shoot stuff. And Specter signs paperwork. In other words, this one's all on the eggheads. We've got a betting pool going to see how long it takes for them to totally fuck things up worse than they already are.

The clocks seem to have started working normally again. I give it a week before they're back to being all wonky. Could be a sign that the nerds are actually fixing the problem.

To keep the troops from going stir-crazy and get them used to killing off Indoctrinated, we've gone back to search-and-destroy operations for the time being, along with scouting missions to try and find Benefactor and Dr. Zelphest like Specter wants.

No word on the reverse-engineering of the Reintegration Tablet. Not my department. Specter says he'll be updating his own blog later today with some information on that. They've apparently been making some progress, but not enough for us to actually get our own version of the Tablet operational.

For the return expedition to the Path of Black Leaves we've been planning, we've decided to only send an all-Military Department team armed with the Hammer of Thor prototype and some laser carbines. I don't want to get our hopes up, but we're running out of wiggle-room. We need to take a shot at the bastard.

  1. A lot of the sorting algorithms and fetching functions have been lost over time. It'll be a big leap when we get them back.

    ...On another note, maybe it's quoting Hamlet because it thinks reverse-engineering means death? Hm. Interesting.
