Song: Scooping shine at hills waterward of Greytown.

Situation: Yield not what was hoped for but adequate. Shovels taking great interest, almost threatening. Returning to Above with what we have.


[OOC: Since Halmarna is inactive, I suppose I might as well post the cipher that she used. It's a simple word substitution of the most ordinary form; specific words were used in place of others for concepts, places, and other terms that would appear frequently in the crimson journals of scouts, and notes they left one another. I tried to make it possible to decipher it without too much work, but it would take some. Here it is:
