[There is little of this book left that deserves the name.

Dunno why those hellspawns decided to attack us, we've never done anything to them. Note to self: scratch that last sentence; they weren't hellspawn, I never heard tell of no demon looked like any of those things. Fiddix was right though: they looked wrong, sure enough. Like, shouldn't have been able even to exist...did manage to come up with some nifty ways of driving them off, though....
...pretty well established again. It's been a lot of work, and I don't think I've slept more than five hours at a stretch, what with keeping the outer defenses up, but I think we've carved out a place for ourselves for real this time....
