Part IX: O Deus! Caedes Erat! (Oh God! It was a Massacre!)
This is the Gospel according to caldeem...
First letter to the members of General Tso's Alliance:
Oh brothers! What hath happened between us? Not to long before now we called each other friends. Brothers even! Our causes are the same, are they not? Are we not brothers in arms? But yea you cause us such loss. It feel like a knife through the heart!
Did we not leave on amicable terms? We moved to our own land to prosper. And prosper we did. We meant no ill feelings to arise. But if you come in to our land, we will engage! And engage we did. But we never predicted what would happen next.
We also couldn't predict how completely naked you would all be.
After our initial attack, you made a counter-move. The result was devastating. The losses were great. The blood filled space and the wreck of my fallen comrades are a vision that will haunt my dreams. I know mourn their losses:
Boshnic Sternen was the first to fall. We tried to move our fleet back to the battlefield to defend him, but it only proved to be our undoing. Soon after I fell myself. My brothers fell very closely behind me. Reco, Whatchu, Rain, Yourdoom, Zerelos, then Reco came back, followed by Rebecca, Boshnic also came back, and finally Rain returned as well. Oh it was a massacre! Here we thought we could survive against a handful of battleships. 3 Dominixes, 1 Tempest, and an Armageddon? No problem... But we were wrong.
It is with heavy heart that I concede defeat to you, my friends. Never again shall we underestimate General Tso's Alliance.
Your former comrade,
