Woenstag 13th, Maart, 1642AD
Hallo Miss Claudia, I hope you are well. I cannot contain my excitement, as today, I set sail for the New World! We are to join MrBenn and a group of settlers in the town of Van Chubbs. I left the military academy in Amsterdam and travelled to Rotterdam to board the 'Grote Maan'. Would you believe that Bartel is also on board! He hasn't changed a bit! I sure am glad to see a familiar face, for this will be a long journey. I will continue to write to you, my love. I miss you dearly.
Dearest Claudia, I am still stuck on this awful vessel. I have grown tired of Bartel and his jokes about the milk maid. Though I must profess, I do not understand them fully. I am told that we will be arriving at Van Chubbs in a few days now. Thank the lord, as my these bunks are killing me!
|Hullo from Van Chubbs!|

They have upgraded the walls now, which seems to have fixed the hole. Stone is better than wood. Our food stocks are low, so I escorted a few settlers out to hunt some large woolly cows. I stand guard as they strip the meat from the bone and we return home. The lumber yard is overfull. Why does no one use this resource in Van Chubbs.
I am bored Claudia. There is nothing happening in this Town. There are hardly any other soldiers around. I am writing this entry earlier than I am used to. We received a cannon from home this morning and we setup an outpost. I am beginning to think being sent here was a waste of time. Wait. That sound...it is the Town Bell! "The Russians are attacking again! To the west!" I hear Bartel cry. I grab my gun. I must end this entry here.

Two games down, and both of them have been really enjoyable! Though you know what's next... it's only Neil's favourite game.
Time until (Johan's) death: 40mins.
Biggest Fail: Not knowing how to repair walls.
Biggest Probable Inaccuracy: The dates of the diary.
