We got into Canson early in the morning. The Forward team welcomed us at the entrance into town. They have been working hard to clear and secure the airfield to make way for people coming. Ghouls have been attacking in steady streams here. Small to larger groups of them. At one time the Town has over 10,000 people living in it. Now most of them have been turned into those walking nightmares. How is it that some got turned into monsters while others remained human? Maybe everyone has changes and we just don’t know how yet. Could have the charred and Crypt Wisp once been human to? It would take a couple people to make one charred. That gives me the chills just thinking about how that could be. (more…)
It has been one week since basic has started. Nothing but getting up early in a makeshift barracks, run drills until the evening, eat and then sleep. Next week basic will be over and the trip the front will start. We will be on the front line for 6 months then will be released from duty. If at that time I wished to stay on my term will be for another 6 months. This has been the first chance I have had to write in all that time. Usually once it is night time it is bedtime my body is too sore to do anything else.
There has been some news on the road clearing team. Ghouls have been attacking steadily as the road clearing team has gotten closer to Canson. Nothing that they can’t handle, but it has been delaying the mission. Enough so that Sgt. Major Miller said that we might get in another week of basic. Which for some of these people that signed up need it. There are at least 5 people that I would not trust with a gun watching my back. Not that they would turn on us just probably shoot someone or themselves by accident. Time for lights out now the sandman is calling my name.

My everything hurts after today’s gauntlet of test. Sgt. Major Miller did not pull any stops to make sure everyone that everyone volunteered or drafted was fit to server. The military with a group of others town folk fixed up the old obstacle course from the summer camp for us to test on. Everything from a mud pit with barb wires run across it to a giant wooden wall for us to climb. Then there was a firing range setup. Though because bullets are at a premium right now it was bb guns. The final was a ran up and down all of Daikon today while wearing a 20 pound pack. The important part is I made the cut even missing part of my hand! (more…)
Today was the day the council announced the vote for the draft. They gave everyone in Diakon the day to decide on where they stood. Then tonight during dinner will hold the vote. If it passes the draft will immidleted be held. A no vote will result in the military having to go through without the man power. Only 25 people will be drafted to fight on the fronts. Everyone of fighting age will be added to a electronic list then drawn. The results will be put up on the main slate in the cafeteria. For each person that volunteers it reduces the people to be drafted. After the announcements everyone went to work. (more…)
5 people volunteered to go out during the day to test the theory of when the Crypt Wisp are awake. The plan is for them to stay out all day. Once the wisp appear they are to lead them back into the main building where it will be studied on how to take them out better. From there we will have better information on what we can do to escape. It was as sound plan too bad that is not how it went down. Everything fell apart when the Crypt Wisp that managed into hide inside the house ambushed all of the volunteers. (more…)
We have been stuck inside the bunker for two days now. People are starting to get cooped up. Only two days and some are already losing it. This bunker is ten times bigger than the one at our at house. These people need to get it together. I guess after last night I don’t blame some for stressing out though. Crypt wisp managed to find a why into one of the underground passages. There are only a few door between us and them so people are getting unnerved. More of wisps keep showing up outside the compound walls. Only during evening and early morning do they move around. During the day they cover themselves and hide. I wonder if we can use that to our advantage? (more…)
From bad to worse that is how I would describe today. It turns those camouflaged monsters are nesting around here. The military tired to wipe out all the they could find. All that it did was draw the other arounds in the area to us. Someone started calling them Crypt Wisps and the name stuck. A few more got into the compound. No amount of bullets seem to take them out. One of them was just a pair of leg attached to a blown away upper half and were still walking after people. Not just walking but following the person. They don’t bleed or make any noise, but the slurping noise from that lamprey mouth of theirs. Being surrounded was not even the worst part about today. (more…)
Dad woke me up early today to go on a special job with a group of other people. We went to the secondary site that was under construction before the collapse happen. At first I was excited to finally go check it out until we get on the road. My stomach was not a fan of the bumpy winding road that lead to it. Me and bumpy roads do not get along. The journey only took a few hours. I managed to keep my breakfast down just barley. Our traveling party consented on three council members and 20 military personnel. I had to ride in the back of a old truck which made my motion sickness so much worse. At least in a car seat you have some cushion. (more…)

The first round of crops have been harvested and tested to make sure they are safe to eat. Turns out radishes grow a lot quicker than potatoes. Finally some sustainable sources of food. Though radishes are not the most flavorful foods. With winter coming in it nice to have something in storage. Once all the radishes were harvested the farm team started to planet winters vegetables. We have enough “MREs meals ready to eat” to make sure everyone is feed until the crops are established. At least that is the plan. What we don’t have enough of is clothes for everyone or a way to make more. Also shoes, socks and undergarments most of the new people brought here only had what they had on. Even with the cloths that were donated from the surplus it is not enough.
These radishes may not seem like much, but to people that lost everyone seeing something grow given them hope. People were holding them like a newborn child when they pulled them from the earth. This was our small communities first real harvest. That is when we noticed something that I never thought about. I keep calling our compound a summer camp, but it doesn’t have a real name. The council decided that it was time we changed that. There was a vote tonight in the mess hall while everyone was enjoying a movie and some snacks to celebrate the harvest. From now the our little old summer camp will be call Camp Daikon. Which is funny to name something after a radishes, but it drew everyone a bit closer to becoming a real community that people will fight for.
