Why so negative about that? Don't you like some variation in the general trend of things? Anyway, don't worry. It's just one chapter of this log written that way. I'm not turning it into a fictional story. Next events will be told in the usual style. Note that the chapter is not 'pure fiction'. What i have done is taking the elements worth reporting now and turn them into a small 'story in the story'. You see the different opinions about the best way to lead the attack (the conflicting reports), the concerns in taking a difficult decision (the dialogue between the Caesar and the Counselor), and a possible battle plan for the capture of New York and Chicago. I'd like to thank Vanadorn for the inspiration. Without reading its magnificent Pax Romana story, i would never have thought about writing a chapter like this.
