Contents

The Coalition States have built an army. Following the events of the Juicer Uprising, Emperor Prosek addresses the states and declares "the Crusade for Humanity". This will eventually lead to the Siege on Tolkeen. Free Quebec is declared an enemy of the States. The first phase, "A Campaign of Unity" ratified the new Coalition States of Missouri and Iron Heart.

Countering this CS propaganda is a short section of the Diaries of Erin Tarn, dated Autumn 105 PA.
