[This journal comprises the last words of Captain Phillip Aurelius. They are noble and courageous, just as he was.]
Recon Patrol 3.1
Captain Phillip Aurelius recording. Engagement with the Exile invaders is no longer a matter of "if" but of "when". Whitevale is not big enough, to use a colloquialism, for the both of us. Only one faction will be in charge of this region eventually, and the traitors seem to be chomping at the bloody bit.
Recon Patrol 3.2
Captain Phillip Aurelius recording. Engagement did not go well, I'm afraid. Not that I intended to take on half the Exile Free Companies with my service weapon and the off bits of string from my pockets. Sustained minor injuries. I think. Might be bleeding internally. Datachron took a shot so can't scan to be sure.
Yes, there was... definitely interna - internal bleeding. By the Scions, this hurts.
This journal can be found in Palerock Wilds on a snow bank a few feet from Captain Phillip's dead body at (2453, -300).
