RECLAMATION
A South Region Premiere Event hosted by Dystopia Rising: Florida

 
 

An urgent message from postmaster Bella Thorn…

Citizens of the Rum Coast... Gatorlanders... This is Postmaster Bella Thorn.

It's been a while. And I hope many of you made it out of the way of these storms over the past few years. I know many of you lost your people, lost your family, or even lost yourselves, but please know wherever you may find darkness, you will also find my lantern. Our lands have been destroyed by storms, retaken by swamplands and the warped creatures of radiation that now inhabit them. And yet, I still believe we can rebuild.

We are here to stay. We are here to fight. We are here to reclaim what was once ours.

For those who have died. For those who have sacrificed. For those we must protect. For those still lost in the darkness. For those who would rather die fighting, helping others, and improving the lands for all rather than sitting on thrones made of others’ bones.

For all of us.. Let's reclaim this land... For Gatorland.

Because Gatorland isn't a place... it is a people.

… I implore all of you... let us come together, as one, and take back what is ours.

For those willing to help, we are going to be retaking Camp Echo’s Forward Base, the place where all of this began. We who destroyed this land with our bombs, oblivious to how it would affect a storm already brewing, it is our responsibility to retake this land, rebuild what was destroyed, and restore the homes of so many who suffered loss due to this catastrophe.

We must always remember, that while this base is abandoned, it is still the place where many Gatorlanders gave their lives to save all of us. We cannot let their sacrifice be in vain.

This new town will become a beacon of light in the darkness. A place where all weary travelers may find refuge from the horrors of this land. An ode to our unyielding survival. The truest testament of our united strength.

Let me be the first to welcome you to our new home. May my lantern ever guide you. May these New Gatorlands bring us all a new dream to believe in.

Now, more than ever, keep your lanterns lit.

Postmaster Bella signing off.
