I won't mask the truth; the Year of the tohaa has been difficult for us in its uncertainties. The Fall of Daedalus Gate has cut us off from the Trinomial and from our homeworld, Runohaa. Not only are we unable to return home, we are left without a means to know how the colonies with their own faraway battlefronts with the Combined Army. No news from loved ones, no resupplies from Trident Command, no choice but to remain here to fight alongside the Humans. But the Humans still remain wary of us and our technology, vastly different from their own rudimentary machines. After all, why should they not be? To them, how are we different from the Morats, from the Exrah, from the Shasvastii that now infiltrate this Human Sphere, from the misled "Sygmaa" septorised by the Enemy? If we are to continue fighting our true enemy, we must firmly establish our place among the Humans. To this end, Luubna Kaaram has outpaced us all; her purchase of the Spiral Corps Mixed Mercenary Company is a step toward legitimising Tohaa presence and normalising Tohaa-Human interactions. We must take our own steps. First, however, we must answer the question of Tohaa leadership. Ambassador Maaya Seegur is truly dead, Ambassador Vaanther among the O-12, and other senior members difficult to locate. To solve this, I propose that our remaining Tridents, those who have not already pledged to the fledgling Spiral Corps, announce themselves and their present status. From those of us left, a moot and vote shall be called to usher in a new Tohaa Command Triad whose task it will be to not only coordinate our military efforts but also to communicate our intentions to the Humans and discover who among them will welcome us and, more importantly, stand with us in holding back the EI. My proposition: [With thanks to the Haqqislam organisers.] When the online campaign forums open, one of the first topics that will be provided shall be a nomination thread. This thread will be open for 72 hours. During that time, you are free to nominate anyone, including yourself, as a member of the Command Triad. There are NO REQUIREMENTS. If you feel you could make a good Command Triad member, then nominate yourself. After 72 hours, a new topic will be made to vote on that nomination list. This voting will take place over 48 hours, and each individual will have one vote to cast. Again, you may vote for yourself or others. The individuals with the most votes will be the triad assigned as Tohaa Command. No matter the outcome of this vote, all of you brave commanders and your troops are important. We are all ambassadors now with a duty to forge bonds with the Humans and with each other. In these difficult times, let us be a cooperative and fair community. Support each other and share saom as though we were all one Triad. Daedalus may have fallen, but the Tohaa continue to fight, both here and in the colonies. 10-2. #ThreeTheTohaa #TohaaUnfallen PS. Just a reminder that it is imperative we work closely with the Cube Jaegers. Back up frequently. Leave no Tohaa Cube behind or vulnerable. Avoid True Death at all costs.
