Journals are a time honored tradition for intrepid explorers and the heroes of Adventure Inc. are no exception. This is a place to post in character reflections on what's happening, we'll use these as a form of interludes as we journey along but feel free to help pad your post count by adding entries as you feel (they may not count one for one to post rate but I'll use them to bump counts).

There will be no long-term consequence to my effectiveness. Atmosphere, temperature, plant life all fall within expected ranges. There are several radio signal sources nearby. I am following the strongest.

engineICOSA >>Signal tracking led me to a small armored team conducting a reconnaissance expedition. While initially wary, they were not hostile and I was able to initiate communication. They identified themselves as being from a community called 'Lazlo,' and were willing to lead me there. Summary follows:

Lazlo - Preliminary Assessment
Location/Environment - Built near the ruins of Toronto in Canada, it controls the surrounding countryside and its natural resources.
Stability - Lazlo claims to be one of the older settlements in North America. Its military has a great deal of 'irregular' units, though it has begun to formalize as the city-state conducted defensive wars against alien beings known as 'Xiticix.' Its government enjoys popular support. It is currently challenged by demographic problems due to large numbers of refugees from a recent war fought between two unencountered factions: The Coalition and Tolkeen.
Politics - Lazlo is a democratic republic, using direct votes of citizens to elect representatives to a legislative Senate. Detailed analysis in progress.
Demographics - The city hosts individuals without regard for planet or world of origin, resulting in a diverse population. Many beings that would not have been recognized as 'people' by the CAN Republic are citizens.
Tactical - Lazlo's military is nearly entirely defensive, composed of volunteers from its citizenry. This volunteer force is formidable though, despite its lack of standardization and military discipline due to the large number of powerful non-human beings in it. Prevailing technological level is inferior to CAN standards, but their embrace of paranatural abilities is an equalizing variable. Lazlo is physically isolated from other large factions in North America, with no allies of comparable strength, but its two most competitive antagonistic factions being too distant...and too distracted by mutual threaten them directly.

>>More time is needed to conduct analysis. Lazlo is sponsoring a major exploratory expedition to the west coast of the North American continent. As this will give me more time to extract information from citizens, opportunity to make contact with other settlements with support from a larger force, and access to information collected from the entire expedition, I have asked to join.
