news report; 2 (May 5th)
[OOC: EVERYONE PRETEND THIS IS POSTED TOMORROW. I just am not sure when I'll be able to post it tomorrow so its going up now]
During the return from Polis, members of the Council came into contact with survivors of the Argo Station. This Station had once been the agriculture center of the Ark that the Skaikru are from. During evacuation last year they landed in Ice Nation territory and were not welcomed by those already occupying the area.
Families were reunited and then broken apart again as they struggled to survive the harsh winter and even harsher conditions levied against them. “Traps we set for animals were deliberately tampered with,” one survivor told me. “At other times our parties who went searching for food were slaughtered and left as warnings to not go any further into their land.” Starvation and the lack of habitable shelter led to many more deaths, but most talked of losing loved ones who stepped in to save children from the Ice Nation who continued to drive them further out of their territory.
Over the months their population has dwindled to one third of the size it used to be. Marcus Kane has allowed the surviving members of the Argo Station to join Mount Weather in hopes that their farming expertise can be utilized during these spring months.
Members of the Ice Nation were not available to give their own accounts of these various encounters.
