The fucked up thing about forward momentum is that the faster you go, the more damage is done when you get that small nudge from one direction or another. We're working our asses of trying to make a go of this expansion, and so far we've been lucky enough to avoid major conflicts with the Exiles, no crushing defeats at the hands and teeth of the undead.
Just goes to show you that it doesn't take a supervillain to derail a train moving at speed. Sometimes trains collide.
Enough beating around the bush, I guess. We're in trouble. Our decision to withhold aid to Louisville wasn't an easy one to make and to be blunt it hasn't been popular with some of our allies. A few of them have made it plain that they think we've made the wrong choice, that we should "risk much to save much." I understand that point of view--it's one I've wrestled with over and over again recently--but ultimately the safety of our people trumps any other consideration.
It isn't pretty or nice. It's actually pretty fucking terrible. But those of you out there who aren't happy with us at the moment...well, you're about to get a whole lot unhappier.
I don't have the heart to get into a long post about it today, but some of the Louisville people are planning to come here if things get much worse there. We're sending out scout parties to make sure they don't get close enough to infect us with whatever version of the plague is devastating their people.
I understand desperation pushing people to do things like this, but we'll shoot the tires out from under their vehicles and lay traps if we have to. This isn't up for debate. Causing a ton of division and hard feelings both inside New Haven and beyond, but as policy goes it's pretty much concrete.
