Transcript of Commander's log page 5
The demon siege continues. Even with rationing, our food stores are starting to run low, and there are too many mouths to feed. We cannot hold out like this forever, and we cannot rely on support from allies.
Praetor Trindine has recommended that we evacuate as much of our civilian contingent as we can, with a small cohort of soldiers to protect them. The secret escape tunnel should see them safely out into the Kharidian, and she has assured me she can assist in keeping them protected on their journey. We have allies in the area where they might take shelter.
I have also ordered the Custodian to deal with our prison contingent - they are a burden we can no longer support. I don't care how he deals with it, so long as it gets done.
Beyond this, we must find another way to deal with this siege. Even with fewer mouths to feed, our food will run out eventually, and then we would grow too weak to be able to defend the fort.
