We came to our next target zone, a large nearly intact building. It was occupied by a handful of these tech worshipping fellows. They had been cut off from Central just recently (relatively) and were engaged in making repairs as best they could. We made contact and diplomacy prevailed. We repaired their machines (well Kit and the box did) and they agreed to help us. They call themselves The Brotherhood of Electricity or some such. I liked these people. They are a bit backwards, but they have a certain charm that makes their presence bearable.
They certainly seemed grateful to be back in touch wih Central! One of them, Thomas, volunteered to join us. He is the best skilled among their young generation. He is very useful since we know so little of this new place. He undertands how to use and maintain these fancy machines, and I am interested in learning all I can. I like Thomas he is soft spoken and respectful, and actually useful.
