SPSF WEEKLY REPORT


MAJOR: 27 JUNE 2020

Minister's Log

I'm still in shock about being voted in as Minister, I suppose.  I've done my best to help raise up the new recruits and teach them what it means to be a part of this fleet thus far, and they are so enthusiastic, I love their fiery spirit.  But, there is much work to be done. The seas have been relatively calm, not a single pirate ship in sight, or whalers, or any sort of trouble.  But, we need to be well prepared to strike should something arise.

The radio on the desk next to me made its distinctive beep-beep-beep sound, followed by the voice of a familiar ally from The Grey Wardens.

"Phoenix, are you there?"

"Lovely to hear from you, Haku."  I pressed the button on my communicator, replying casually.  I leaned a little further back in my seat, twirling my pen between my fiery fingers.  

"We got wolves.  We could use a little help from the SPSF to corner them down."

"Lovely."  Was all I said, abandoning the humanoid form to fly out of the Captain's Quarters and round up any crew that was awake.  A young, enthusiastic recruit immediately reported to deck, saluting me with an eager expression.  I landed right on my perch, heart pounding with excitement.

"Good to see you, Swifty.  We've got wolves.  Go prepare yourself for a hunt of the ages."

Swifty took off for his quarters, leaving me to navigate us to our destination. I flew to the deck, re-assuming the humanoid form I held before, and quickly started the S.S. Llama Shade to the location where the wolves were last spotted.  

It only took an hour to get to the location, from where Swifty and I disembarked, and met up with our friends in the Ten thousand Islands Treaty Organization, The Grey Wardens, and the Rejected Realms Army.  Haku stepped forward, gesturing in the direction of where a band of wolves were dashing along the coastline, fish in their jaws and a distinct glimmer in their eye, running with such chaotic, disheveled cadence in every paw step.  

"Are... are they drunk?"  I asked, unable to hide the amusement from my voice.

"Seems so."  The other Warden nodded, loading his sniper.  "Let's move.  When they move, we shoot."

"Sounds good to me."  I grabbed the trident Swifty handed over to me, feeling its shiny metallic surface roar to life in my grasp.

The duality between the oceans and the volcanoes... could the wolves stand up against such power?

"THEY MOVED LET'S GO!"  Jamie shouted, taking off after the wolves.  Haku and Tim followed suit.

"Wait..."  I lifted my binoculars ahead to the target, suddenly realizing the target.  "They're going after Hector's Dolphins!"

I didn't need to worry, for the wolves' clumsy footing caused them to trip, revealing just how out of it they were.  With a laugh, I ran aboard the S.S. Llama Shade, followed by Swifty, and charged the ship forward despite the fact that the pod had swam away already.

"Careful, they seem to be going again..."  Haku whispered into the radio communicator.  He kept his rifle trained onto the lead wolf, preparing to take them down as soon as they next moved.

"Be careful of the dolphins.  They're highly endangered."  I replied, keeping my eye on the wolves.

The pack lurched forward again, going for another pod of dolphins.  This time they were a tad more coordinated, but Haku and Tim's quick firing saved the unsuspecting dolphin from the wolves.  I steered the S.S. Llama Shade a little ways ahead, blocking them off from the pods with the hull.  An expertly-thrown trident knocked the other wolves back further.  I smiled, watching Jamie wade through the shallower waters to grab my trident and toss it back to me.

"Thanks Jamie!"  I waved, ignoring the sting of the water droplets on my hand from the trident.

"There's more."  Haku suddenly motioned for everyone to follow him, dashing through the thick undergrowth.  I motioned for Swifty to follow everyone else back to land, and very quickly began the chase of our lives.  

I allowed myself to be Phoenix once again, a fluid motion from running to being truly airborne, flying just behind the Wardens.  The wolves quickly came to sight, dragging with them the body of a dolphin, with the distinctive rounded fin on it's back.

"Careful where you shoot!"  I screeched loudly.  The wolves turned their heads to face our direction, sprinting off further.  Without warning, a muscular purple unicorn materialized out of thin air, charging ahead with Jamie on it's back.  Haku and Tim stopped, a sudden confused air surrounded the Wardens.  I crashed into the tree just up ahead, scrambling back up only to see Jamie and the unicorn trot back with the wolves skewered on the unicorn's horn.  In Jamie's arms was the dolphin, safe and sound.

"Good."  I relaxed, shifting again to the humanoid form to take the dolphin out of Jamie's arms, making my way back to the ocean.  I waded through the water until I could let the dolphin swim away, then flew back to shore.

"That's more dolphins saved today."  I proudly announced to everyone, walking back.

"Thanks for your help, everyone."  Haku set his rifle down by his side, the thrill of the chase leaving a weary smile on his face.

"Always happy to help."  I replied.  Swifty nodded his head happily, making his way back to the S.S. Llama Shade.  I followed suit, making my way back to the Captain's Quarters, settling back down into my chair.  I raised the glass of S.P.I.T. to my mouth and drank my fill, allowing the sweet liquid to relax me.  I picked up my pen once again and began writing.

Minister's Log

The wolves decided to try to go after the critically-endangered Hector's dolphin.  We successfully staved them off for now, but there will be more who may come along and attempt to poach these majestic marine creatures.  As always, it is our duty to protect these creatures, no matter the cost.  No matter who tries to capture them.

Signed, 
Phoenix
