supplement 22 May 5623 CE ...
Well this morning’s little action at Walkingtree Farm resolved over the
afternoon into a rescue of government troops by the expensive STC
mercenaries that our government has hired to protect us -- apparently
from each other. I think STC stands for Siphoning Tarkine
Credits, which is mostly what they do (and the amount we’re paying them
is a public record, previously published here and elsewhere), or maybe
Save The Corporations!, which seems to be their real assignment.
Some of boys took time off from the early harvest to go help out their
brothers, bringing homemade lunches and rocket launchers. Our
boys exchanged fire with the government troops hiding behind the women
and kids in the buildings of Walkingtree Farm (now officially
recognized as a “strategic hamlet”, we hear). One squad of
government goons ran screaming out of the south silo across the road
after receiving a hail of fire, and we’ve heard that several more of
those thugs were killed and wounded, to which we say, good
riddance. We don’t have any word on civilian casualties, and
while we hope such were avoided, we know that it’s a cost of war
imposed on us by our own government!
The government put the civilian buildings between our boys and their
armored vehicles. Our boys tried to hit them with rocket
grenades, but had no luck and actually caused some damage to the south
silo. The armored troops fared better against our boys, their
machine guns killing and wounding several as they moved away from the
hamlet to engage the STC vehicles coming up from the starport.
And what was going on at Tarkine Down? You may have seen the glow
and heard the explosions, but we got the story from friends of friends
of starport security personnel, if you know what I mean. It seems
that the fancy security gate that STC installed wasn’t opening fast
enough for them, so they used their vehicles’ main guns to blast it
open! Now are we supposed to pay for a new gate? I hope the
price of that is coming off the monthly stipend we’re paying them – and
I recommend you write your representative and demand that STC pay for
the gate they destroyed!
Anyway, our boys had no luck shooting at the STC vehicles – they hit
some of them, but the rockets pretty much bounced off, and so the lads
withdrew to fight another day. That makes me think that those STC
fellows better stay in their armored barracks at night. Our boys
have some rockets left, and plenty of bullets.
Remember, don't give them nothing that you don't have to: not one iota!

STC managed to recover most of the Loyalist vehicles. The
Loyalists will be able to use them later in the campaign.
