A wall is only as strong as the brick that holds it up. We have always known this and for you to experience it in practice can only be a good thing.

You created chaos in the insects' ranks by eliminating the brick that holds their wall up. That is why the Dragon is in perpetual motion like a wave, and not static like a wall. A wave cannot be dismantled.

Your creative use of the material left by the fallen soldiers showed us that your mind is in continuous motion as well. Good.

Illuminati.pngIlluminati

And that is why monarchy went out of style and why our way is better than the medieval system they have over at Temple Hall. If your entire organization is dependent on what kind of day your leader is having you're setting yourself up for a huge helping of fail.

Well played appropriating the dead soldiers' equipment and eventually taking advantage of the crickets' lack of organizational sense. That kind of initiative only proves you're able to roll with the punches. High five.

PS. Tell Sarge to go fuck himself. No, seriously. I nearly wore out a pair of kneepads trying to smooth over that shit he pulled in Khartoum.

Templars.pngTemplar

This only reinforces the impression we already have of the Pentagon. Their training does not match their funding, and their equipment is better applied in capable hands. Ours.

The officer was right about one thing, though. Taking out the matriarch did put a big dent in the crickets’ organization and advance. That information is very much nice to have.

Your ability to adapt and take advantage of all information and material, no matter the source, is pleasing.
