Dent's radioman picked up hints of a transmission last night on one of the frequencies he's tasked with monitoring for Homeland Security...

09:04 AM #
He thinks it might have been the nuclear techs that are now long overdue. None of our allies were able to triangulate the signal.

If they broadcast again tonight, we'll be ready. We may be able to get a bearing, even if we can't make out the message. #zompocalypse

Back to my tales of what happened on Mackinac Island since the zombies rose and things fell apart. Things changed there this past summer.

09:13 AM #
The renegade soldiers (though nobody knew for sure they were mutineers at that point) had solidified their control of the island...

09:16 AM #
The soldiers led most of the raids using their commandeered Coast Guard cutter. They built a cadre of loyal followers for sensitive missions

09:19 AM #
The divide between these "Elites" and the rest of the island's inhabitants grew. Non-fighters were marginalized, taken advantage of.

09:22 AM #
Soon, they ran out of easy pickings near the island. They started raiding larger targets, like the big survivor group on Washington Island.

09:25 AM #
They hijacked a few fishing and salvage boats, even tried a raid on Washington Island itself. They got their noses bloodied there.

09:28 AM #
At some point, one of their scouts noticed something ashore at the Point Beach Nuclear Power Plant that indicated it might be occupied...

09:31 AM #
Now, I'm just piecing things together from interviews with prisoners we took in the ensuing battle there, but this is what I think happened:

09:34 AM #
I believe the mutineers decided it was time to move on from Mackinac Island, abandoning it for the next in a series of temporary bases.

09:37 AM #
Like other predatory survivor groups we've encountered, they use up the resources of an area, then move on. Like locusts. #zompocalypse

09:40 AM #
Unfortunately for them, the small group inside Point Beach that they thought they could easily overwhelm was led by Dent and his Marines...

09:43 AM #
...and they weren't alone. Our alliance had quite a surprise for them. You saw the rest unfold here, as it happened. #zombies #zompocalypse
