The Quiet (But Busy!) Year

by R&D Officer Lio L. Levon

"...shwi oyu docul ese htsi, Leah!"
Never did I expect these would be some of the works I could get done with the crew! Now that we broke off from the others who turned out to be using us for less-than-honest ends, we're now our own crew, on our own island to shape our reputation as we see fit. And we clearly made a lot of work to it!
A silver mine was found on our island, and that was a bit of a jump start we needed for sure. With it, we were able to make a proper set of ships. Not ones that can submerge, or handle traveling through rifts... But they are immune to their pull! Such ships can make transporting goods to and from our island more secure than ever before. Our technology was making some great strides aside from that, like the heating systems we were able to master! We... did use some of it to make a hot spring kind of establishment, but it's surprisingly gone well for those who visit, so that's good! We were able to get the heating system working on the homes and buildings too, very nice, honestly.
We did have a few scouting missions we were going to get through in order to research more on those Redcaps. I think that may be a goal for us now. To truly be a force of good here in Liminal. Unfortunately we never got to finish those scouting missions. Suddenly winter came to Liminal, and it's something I never noticed before in Liminal. Something has affected the climate heavily, making the world incredibly cold and tough for the world. Our ships however have been really helpful in making sure they're doing well with supplies and food.
It really has changed the crew and what we do for Liminal now, not closing every rift we find, but only checking in on those that are truly dangerous, and finding the best way we can all help each other. And... Honestly, it makes me really happy. Like I'm actually making a real difference. Leah, I think you, Mom and Dad would be really proud of me and what I can do now. Maybe... Maybe one day I'll get to see you all again, and show you just how much I've grown.
I miss you all, Mom, Dad, Leah. I hope you are trying to find me just as much as I'm trying to find you.
