We are now working on updating the new log. This one will still be available for you to browse through but will no longer be updated. As mentioned before, the new one will only be updated on a weekly basis.
To reach the new log, visit The Secret of a Sunken City. This information will also be available in a tab at the top.
Ahoy . . . .
Eliseo . . . I heard so much about him, even though he was a taboo subject. People still talked about him. Particularly to me. The brother he never knew.
It’s because he left that my city was grieving. Because he left, my city destroyed us all. It would have taken me with it too but I left when I started hearing the city move. Orslone sank to the bottom of the sea to imprison her residents with her for all eternity.
It’s his fault I lost my home. And everything I held dear. It’s Eliseo’s fault.
I have to find him. I have to find Eliseo and kill him. He must pay for what he’s done.
I’ve convinced Davenport to move on from Argo Bay. He understands now that he must let the great city rest in peace. She was never meant to be disturbed. She never wanted us here. But she tolerated the Leviathan because Eliseo and I were onboard. A shame he never took the time to know his little brother better.
This log will be available always for your perusal. However, if you want updates on how we’re doing on our new adventures, you’ll have to check the new log. Check back tomorrow for navigation to the new log. I’ll also provide a route to it from various pages of this log. A note on this new log though: as we won’t be providing treasures (though you might still get the captain’s poems), we will only be updating the new log once a week.
First Mate Future Captain Laroque Whire
Well, we’re in a bit of a bind. See, in the middle of the night, Ship’s Doctor Elias stole our last remaining life boat and left. Not only are we out of luck if the ship breaks or if anyone gets sick or hurt–luckily those injured in the battle with Corbett are recovered enough that they no longer require Elias to take care of them–but we also can no longer perform expeditions to the sunken city. That means no more treasures. Until we can find a life boat that is.
I will hold a conference with my most trusted officers and crewmen to determine how we shall proceed.
Elias . . . after that . . . yesterday . . . he hasn’t spoken to anyone. He holed himself up in his cabin and hasn’t come out. Laroque is concerned. Well, face it, most of the crew are concerned about him. Expeditions have been postponed until further notice. My apologies. I’ll inform you if there is any change in his condition.
I have to tell you this. I could think of nothing else since pulling up that letter yesterday.
I am from the city of Argo Bay–we actually called it Orslone.
Jerrell was my twin brother.
When I left the city, I became immortal.
My name is Eliseo.
Ship’s Doctor Elias
I was . . . in charge of the expedition today. See below.
I overheard my officer speaking to a few others this morning. Eli, I, I think my unit is going to be deployed soon. I don’t know where we’re going but he said that he had a conference with the Director to discuss our progress.
I lost track of time, Eli. I guess it could be true that we’ve been training long enough to know what we’re doing. Eli, I’m scared. I’m even more scared of this than I have been all my life of the world outside our City. I’ve been taught things that I never wanted to know how to do. And I’m scared that I may have to use these skills and use them soon.
Eli, where are you? I need you. Stop this. Stop the City from training our young people and sending them off to kill never to be seen again.
When you get this letter—not if, but when—I’ll be long gone. It’s already too late for me and the boys already here. But maybe you can stop this from happening. That is, if you ever return.
This might be the last letter I’m able to write. And at that, I’m sneaking around. But I don’t know what else to do. And there’s so much to say. Too much, as it is. It’d take a letter of a hundred pages or more to accurately convey my feelings right now.
You need to know, though, Eli, what I’ve found out. Maybe it will help you talk some sense into the citizens. Only they can stop the Director from sending away our youth.
When the Forces are ready, one unit at a time, they are sent into the clouds. The officer remains behind. The top man from the class becomes the unit’s commander. But they’re sent into the clouds to the Heavens to prevent Evil from entering our City. I knew the Forces fought against Evil but, Eli, did you know that this is where they went? The officers claim we were chosen by the Divine for this job, that’s why we couldn’t be consolidated into society.
Do you see, Eli? This is why the boys are never seen again. Once the Forces join the Divine, they can never return. They must fight the Evil until they are killed or keel over dead.
I guess this is good-bye, Eli. Take this information to our friends, family, and neighbors. Tell them that this is what’s happening to their children, nephews, and friends that don’t get consolidated.
With love always,
I failed you, brother.
Ship’s Doctor Elias
Didn’t get much of a chance to make an expedition today as I’ve been trying to set everything right again. And people are resting and healing besides. I’ll get one to you tomorrow though.
For now, please take note of the Current Payroll tab. This was created simply for your benefit so that you may keep track of who does what and who is now gone, as the old The Captain tab has fallen a bit out of date. This Current Payroll will be kept updated however The Captain tab will remain the same in case you’d like to reference old crew descriptions–what little information I have provided you.
Tomorrow is a new dawn and, with it, I shall retrieve another new treasure. For now, please just check out that tab I was telling you about.
