Diary of Gao Lin, first entry.
This is my first day as a member of the 37th Chamber after I was rescued from the battlefield by Master Wong, and for some reason, he has instructed me to start writing a diary. I don’t relish the idea, but he is my master now so I suppose he knows what he’s doing. Anyway, I’m happy that I’m once again among my own kind, but unfortunately, this won’t last for long, for Reverend Grimme is still at large and we have discovered only two out of the seven Indian glyphs. I have decided to stay here for a week and then leave to look for the rest of the glyphs. But without aid, it will be a near impossible task. For this reason I have decided to seek out my former companions. Unfortunately, the Priest and the Shaman fell in battle and I have no idea of Eagle’s whereabouts so the only one left is Ross. But luckily I have a good idea where to find him. I’m not so sure myself if I should trust him anymore, for he seems to be now working with the enemy of the Chamber. And he will probably be thinking the same about me, after our clash earlier. But he’s seems to be the only one left, so I’ve got no choice.
As I mentioned earlier, I fought against Ross and what seemed to be his new travelling companions. A tall blonde man and an ugly man who reeked of alcohol. They were escorting a boat full of infernal machines that belonged to the Confederate Army. Good thing that our raid was successful and the devices were all destroyed. I was relieved that he was alive and well but disappointed that he was working with the Confederate Army. I know that he is a Texas Ranger but does he not know that by aiding the Army he will doom California and it’s inhabitants? And isn’t he a former slave himself so shouldn’t he know better than to help them? If and when we rid California of Grimme and his cult, it would seem that the CSA is the next one to threaten the Maze and it’s people. And I can’t allow that.
