Radio Free Earth News Story
The following item goes on the air in early August of 2008.
Our top story today is of a hard-won victory in New England, and a call for help.
In a bold strike against the invaders, resistance members led by one James Massey located, assaulted, and captured an invader base near Temple, New Hampshire. After his community near Wichendon, Massachusetts suffered several weeks of raids from Ghostwalker-controlled walking dead, Massey tracked the attackers back to their base in New Hampshire. He gathered brave resistance members from his town and the surrounding area, and attacked the small outpost at dawn.
Fighting raged throughout the day as the invaders put up a strong defense, but eventually Massey's forces stormed the main building of the encampment and killed all of its defenders. Massey, himself, and over a dozen of his men were killed in the assault.
The survivors of the battle and others from the Winchendon community are calling for aid in holding the base against a counterattack. Some of the captured invader property cannot be moved from the site, so they hope to set up a permanent community there. They are also calling for scientists and linguists to help them investigate the invader writings and artifacts that they have found there, in the event they might be used against the invaders.
One captured item of particular interest is a Ghostwalker artifact apparently used to attract and manipulate the spirits of their dead. It's located in the main building of the outpost and was central in its defense. During the fighting, the spirits of dead Ghostwalkers were seen rising and entering the building, and these invaders later emerged alive and able to fight again. The Winchendon resistance fighters hope to keep this artifact out of the invaders' hands and learn whether it can be used against them.
We at Radio Free Earth honor the bravery and sacrifice of James Massey and his friends, and encourage anyone willing to help in Temple to contact the Pathfinders' Guild for an escort to the area.
