  • *first entry found on a Grismaran Research Tablet*

    It's been 24 hours since the sickness has set in. They are saying that there are hundreds already dead, maybe more. All I have is my tablet and my lab. One co-worker has already fallen ill. We have him locked up in a test subject holding cell. We are doing our best to find a way to reverse the affects. I hope my family is safe. I long to be with them, but we must find a cure. . .

    Days are turning into years. Things are getting worse. There are reports of more deaths, but that is all rumors. I have not been outside of my lab in what feels like ages. We are no closer to a solution. It seems the elixir has made disease #EX017253-T even stronger than before. Preliminary test results show the readings exponentially increased aggression verses pre-elixir tests. I fear for my daughter and husband. I have not heard from them since we took the Everlife Elixir. I must find a cure.

    There is no one left. All my co-workers are now locked in the holding cell. I think they have started eating each other. I am starting to feel there is no cure. This must be my fate.

    Victor has created a serum that prolongs the affects of the elixir; he calls it Vitalus. Disease #EX017253-T is still present, but it seems to be held in suspended animation. Victor says he has sent for help. I must survive.

    *last entry in data set*

    Help has arrived, but we must move fast. I hope my Ikabod and sweet Amelia are safe and on their way to the ships. They say we are going to a safe place; a new home. Can we trust them?

    *Added 60 minutes later*

    I am to enter a cryostasis pod until we reach our new home. All I have is my tablet now. I fear my family did not make it. I will report again when I wake.
