SPSF WEEKLY REPORT

Note, this obviously is very, very late. Sorry that our report is so late, we’ll be right back with our regularly-scheduled content with the next report. As such, this report will cover everything we’ve done since the South Pacific liberation. And, a huge special thanks to Swifty Imperial Dodo for helping out getting this report done! Now, without further ado, the report.

Determination (SP Liberation pt. 2)

We have been grappling with defeat at every corner. The mere power of the trident shards alone have given them enough power to do this. I had just been scratching the surface this entire time I had possession of the trident, but they are unleashing a dangerous force unknown to mankind. If they manage to find more of the shards… I fear what will happen.

Phoenix closed the journal once again, looking over at the clock on the walls. The past few days have been impossible, at every corner, there was a new surprise that caused the casualties of many of the civilians that joined forces with the liberators. With a sigh, Phoenix stood up, pushing her chair in, and quietly made her way out of the room.

“There has to be a way…”

Phoenix shuffled into the quiet cafeteria, sneaking over and grabbing a mango, which she nibbled on her way to the secret command room, looking over the various things discussed. After a while, she shook her head and left the room, walking out to see everyone else walking out of the building. Everyone at this point looked unmotivated, having experienced defeat at every turn up until now.

“Look. We might be struggling, but we WILL pull through!” One of the brilliant higher-ups of the Rejected Realms Army, Jamie, shouted. Their voice was confident, brimming with determination, as the unicorn they rode paced up and down in front of the combined forces. “We CAN do this!”

“You all can do this!!!” The head of The East Pacific, Serge, cheered on, though he could not enter battle. Just in front of him was the Field Commander of the East Pacific Sovereign Army, who was walking the civilians they had left through what needed to happen.

“I suppose it is time for our final stand.” Phoenix drew her swords and marched to the front.

“READY.” Phoenix shouted.

The combined armies fell quiet, no longer the massive 90 brave warriors, but a third of that. Many more of the civilians at home would mourn their losses, but now wasn’t the time for that.

“AIM.”

It seemed like the Hawks were just about done with their party, but enough were left to bite back against the defenders. They seemed ready to give it one last fight, having had their victory and ready for the next thing.

“FIRE!!!” Phoenix shouted, as the swarm of people from all over charged in. The Privateers of the North Pacific Army skillfully sliced through some of the remaining Hawks. The Rejected Realms Army rode in, invoking their wrath upon any remaining Hawks. The South Pacific Special Forces rode in by storm, charging in, firing harpoons at any nearby hawks.

The rightful King of the island ran alongside the liberators, tearing through hawks with powerful leaps into the ear, grabbing them with his powerful jaws, and throwing them off the island ferociously. Not a single hawk dared touch him. Instead, they flew away, leaving the throne empty for the Panther to casually walk up, which he took with stride.

“And stay out.” He growled. The remaining liberators approached Panther and the natives from South Pacific with a triumph in their eyes, which he smiled in return, as he was king over his realm once again.

Not many words were exchanged, though everyone helped clean up the mess as best as they could. When clean-up was complete, the South Pacific Special Forces and the remaining South Pacificans walked off the island and into their vessel, ready to set course for home.

“Let’s go home. We’re not out of this quite yet.” Roavin turned towards the front of the ship. Nakari nodded, making her way over to guide the ship back home. Phoenix passed SPIT all around to those who had attended, sharing stories with everyone aboard.

I just want to say, from the bottom of my heart, to everyone that participated, THANK YOU. THANK YOU for coming out to help our friends, even if it did mean losing your endorsements. Thank you for supporting our efforts and making history, even if we may not have “won” because of our numbers. The fact that every single person came out with the intention to help meant so much more to us, that, if there are any big, high-stakes missions, that we can count on you to help us liberate regions from the claws of the raiders that seek to destroy.

And a massive thank you to the different regions that came to help, especially The East Pacific, you guys helped so much with the Civilian Militia, with how many people you managed to pull for this and your intense recruitment efforts. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Minister of Military Affairs of The South Pacific,

FiHami

Middle of the Earth

“That way.”

Sailing away from South Pacific, everyone made their way to the next region that had been taken over by the wolves. Along the way, they picked up a few new recruits permanently, and the ship was busy rejoicing in their recent victory. At the helm were the two generals of the South Pacific Special Forces, who were quickly steering the ships towards the target.

“Hey, back there at South Pacific, I found this thing, it looked important, some hawks dropped it.” One of the new recruits said, holding up a small shard of metal. Phoenix stood up and approached them, looking at what they held in their hands.

“That’s gotta be another shard.” Phoenix smiled, stretching her hand out for the trainee to drop the shard into her hand.

“A shard…?” The recruit asked confused.

“Basically, this little shard was part of a trident that was passed down from Minister to Minister of our region’s military. It is very powerful, as you saw from what the hawks did in South Pacific. All that trouble, caused by them having managed to grab a few shards.”

“Wait, where’s the trident now-” The recruit was about to ask, until they were cut off by a command from the helm.

“Let’s go! Target acquired!”

Everyone aboard armed themselves up for yet another liberation, when suddenly, another shout pierced the air.

“GET OFF THE DECK NOW! INSIDE!”

Had the warning come a few seconds later, many SPSF members would have been lost, as everyone made it into the inner workings of the ship just in time for the oceans to open up, everything falling for what seemed like an eternity, until suddenly, everything stopped.

Roavin stepped out of the cabin carefully, to survey what had happened. He came back to the cabin, somewhat relaxed, even excited a little bit.

“Well, we somehow took a shortcut to the target it seems, because we are in Middle Earth.”

“What do you mean we’re in Middle Earth…?”

Everyone emerged from the shelter of the lower levels of the ship to the deck, to find that they’ve been dropped into the middle of an ocean just looking out to what seemed to be a fantastic land only imagined.

“Well, let’s go. We need to find the invaders-” Phoenix started to say, only to be interrupted by Nakari pointing over to the shore.

“Wolves. They’re patrolling the shores, but we should be able to slip in.”

“How are-” Phoenix was about to ask, when suddenly, the skies opened up, dropping many other defenders down from the skies into the ship. After a bit of a meet and greet, everyone focused their attention on timing the wolf patrols.

At the signal from commanders, the large group dropped down from the ship into smaller boats, rowing to the shores, avoiding detection from the patrols of wolves.

“Hey, Phoenix. Go fly ahead and see if you can find anything. Try to stay undetected.” Haku whispered, and Phoenix quickly transformed, flying to the trees as quietly and secretly as possible.

“Everyone else, let’s stay here and wait. When the bird returns, we’ll see what our options are.”

They sat there, hiding themselves the best they could in the dense foliage, holding their breaths when the wolves got too close to comfort, and relaxing once again when they left. However, their situation was short-lived when the unmistakable screech was heard.

That’s when the wolves found the group in the dense foliage.

The initial skirmish was rather short-lived, as the more experienced defenders made quick work of the small patrol.

“No use for stealth now, no doubt they know we’re here. Let’s go now, as quickly as possible.” Haku sighed, motioning for the defenders to go and run through the forests as quickly as possible.

The group made it to the volcano where they saw the ruler of the wolves laugh, holding hostage the residents of the surrounding town as their attendants. In a small birdcage was Phoenix, wrapped in what seemed to be flameproof material, lying on the ground motionless. The leader stepped down from his throne, a smirk on his wolfy face and an undeniable glint of pride in his face.

“So, you lot all finally decided to descend from your crushing defeat to come to challenge me?” He growled, licking his snout. “I have your fire chicken, and now I have a wider buffet of defenders to snack on.”

Frattastan walked up to the large wolf with annoyance, picking him up from the scruff of the neck, chucking the wolf into the volcano, taking the birdcage with him as the wolf thrashed, trying to avoid his inevitable demise.

“Ah, we lost-” One of the SPSF newer recruits cried out, interrupted by Nakari with a smug look on her face as the recruit went from panic to astonishment as Phoenix flew out of the volcano as if nothing had happened.

“She’s a phoenix.”

Phoenix landed on the ground next to the group, transforming back to the human form.

“Thanks, did we win?” She smiled, shaking off random down feathers from her sleeves.

“Fratt literally just grabbed the wolf like it was a kitten. It was great to watch.” Swifty laughed, mimicking the action of grabbing the wolf by his neck and tossing him like a toy.

“I wish I could have seen that. We should go home though… wait, do we have a way home?”

A hush fell across the defenders as they realized that they were trapped in the unfamiliar land.

Some Perfect Timing
Written by Swifty (Imperial Dodo)

It was a sunny, summer day. The sky was as clear as it could be and all was well. It had now been almost 2 weeks since the liberations of South Pacific and Middle Earth. Minister Phoenix was sitting in her office, reading a book and munching on a mango. I was slumping in my chair trying to get a little sleep after having updated the entire SPSF Headquarters Security System last night. There had been no sightings of any of the hawks or any of the other trident fragments. I was sitting in my chair, half asleep when my computer started beeping. I spun around, and saw that there were 2 unidentified objects approaching the outer rim of Asia. I jumped out of my seat, took my computer and walked over to Minister Phoenix’s office:

“Phoenix, 2 unidentified objects appeared on my radar approaching Asia.”

“It’s fine, probably just some wolves doing some shenanigans, just noti-”

She was interrupted when my computer started beeping like crazy and over 25 more unknown objects appeared on radar. They were forming up in a coordinated swarm, seemingly preparing to attack.

“Notify Haku, Jamie and our friends at UDSAF and let's get moving!”

I grabbed my computer, ran back to my office, called Merlin and Jamie and told them where to meet us.

“Cmon, hurry Swifty. We’re gonna miss them”, screamed Phoenix.

“Yea, coming.”

I grabbed my pistol and my sniper, jumped on the boat and started those engines. Upon our arrival near the location where they were spotted, we found an abandoned wolf camp which seemed to be very recent. We were looking through what was left of the camp when Roavin called us:

“I think I found something,” he said, “it looks like some kind of flag with stars on it.”

He handed it over to Phoenix.

“Ahhh, well, looks like we’ve got a pack of European wolves on our hands. Lets go hunt every single one of them down!” , she replied.

We met up with TGW, RRA and UDSAF, armed our weapons, cracked our necks, and went wolf hunting. Following some trails, we were led to a thick, and dark forest.

“They must be hiding somewhere in this forest, waiting for the right time to pounce.” said Jamie.

The forest was dark and eerie. We walked slowly, clearing out every possible angle, when we saw a figure appear from behind a tree. All of our weapons were pointed at it.

“Don’t worry, don’t worry. It’s just me” said Haku standing in front of 20 wolves who were tied to trees.

“What in the world happened here??!!”, I asked

“Well, to put it simply, I happened to be in the area when I noticed this large pack of wolves who seemed to be preparing. I was able to pick them off, one by one, while they were alone, and capture them.”

“Imma be honest, that’s some gosh darn perfect timing.”, I replied pleasantly surprised.

“Oh, I also found this, it looked important,” he said while handing something to Phoenix, “Isn’t it like one of those missing shard thingies. Not sure.”

Phoenix examined it and was ecstatic.
“Yes, OMG, YES! Thanks Haku. Like, Thanks ALOT. We’ve been looking for any sign of the trident for almost 2 weeks now. Well, I’m gonna be honest with you peps. This is both good news, but also bad news. It’s good because well, we found another shard but bad because we found this on some European Wolves.”

“Why is that bad?” asked Merlin.

“Well, the shards were taken by some hawks but if we found them on some European Wolves, it means that the hawks are sharing the shards with their friends, which will make it a lot harder to get all of the shards back.”

“Welp. Thank guys for your help.” I said walking back onto the boat with Phoenix.

I sat down, started the engines and commenced the long boat ride home.

Yours Truly,
Soldier Swifty
