Dear Madam,
The uplifting is ended, with partial success! We did encounter some minor problems, but we got a much improved scientific output from this! As such, while not all we wished for, this must be seen as a success!



--------------------------

Advisor note: Nightly terrors, millions of our population literally vegtables... Not to speak of the almost disaster had we not intervened. I would hesitate to call this a success.

Dear Madam,
A most mysterious event has unfolded. The robotic workers of Londthyr resisted new colonists, warning us of dangers we cannot confirm by our sensors. We sent in our colonists anyway. And the robots are all gone. Disappeared. It seems they left in a hurry. But where? And why? We do not know, yet. But I am sure, with the gods' help, we will figure it out in time. We are Sithrandir.




------------------------

Advisor note: Aulendur. We might be Sithrandir. We might be strong and wise and whatever semi true nonsense they teach at schools today. But we are not invincible. We are not untouchable. And this is another piece in a puzzle we really should get solved, fast!

Dear Madam,
The solution to our AI problems is at hand! Our blessed programmers has engineered a hotfix that will stop the AI routines we have running our Confederacy from doing any new hickups. Some problems with scientific output at first might happen, but this will only be a temporary setback. Nothing can go wrong after this has been completed! I've set the patch to apply at the time you will read this.



------------------------

Advisor note: So, let me get this straight. The AI, which is glitchy and has been acting like it's selfaware and has developed feelings. It is getting patched, and from what I read from the attached files, more or less neutered. How do you think this AI, if it discovers this, will react? Oh, we have made our bed, for sure... It runs the entire Confederacy, without any subdivision? When did this get approved? I specifically told you years ago we did not want it to have absolute control, Aulendur! The Chief Precentor gave a direct order! Oh, Aulendur, what have you done...

Madam!

I implore you, hurry to the rendezvous point! Time is of the essence! Aulendur has doomed us all.

The galaxy, the Sithrandir, our Confederacy. All is lost. The AI has taken control of almost all our empire. Sentients; lying dead in the streets. All military vessels, all defense stations, all our defenses in space and on our planets; they are in control. Robots. Everywhere, pouring out. Killing billions. I know now where they came from. I know we brought this on ourselves.

The psychics… They were in the Shroud when it happened. They are all gone. But something happened. A rift of some sorts. Devils. Devils are what those beasts are. They poured out of the rift around Cybrex Alpha. It is the only part of our territory not controlled by the rebellious AI. Little good it does us, though.

I suspected this could happen and set Agent Haldir to prepare a last line of defense in case the worst thing happened. He did well, but we were too slow. Too late. The Confederacy is no more. We must flee. I have a small number of ships available for departure.

The dimensional portal we have opened might be our last, best hope. A small number can get through it, before it is too late. The other side… We know little about it, but it is in another dimension. If we can get through now, we might get away and close the portal before the Enemy catches us and gets through itself. The planet is beautiful, from the initial scans. We should have had more time. More time to prepare. But this is our only chance.

Madam, Middle Earth awaits.

Så der er vi, ved enden av reisen. Save gamet døde, men jeg måtte ende det på en god måte. Håper dere likte historien. :)
