The Blackhawk Nation is born.
March 9, 2008
The Blackhawk Nation has declared the Flowers of Disease as an official enemy. The Flowers of Disease are a group of pk'ers who have targeted us and decided to bring terror to the suburb of Vinetown. They have embarked on a campaign of slander, misinformation, and death. We will fight them as they are a group that must be dealt with. All members of the Flowers of Disease are to be shot on sight. No mercy shall be shown to them as they show no mercy for others.
April 14, 2008
The war between the Flowers of Disease and the Blackhawk Nation has officially ended. Both sides took their share of casualties. In the end, it was a learning experience for both sides.

The Rangers went on their first mission re-establishing the communications network in Crowbank. The Rangers led a surgical strike into Exon Alley Railway Station, which is where the phone mast is located in Crowbank. They eliminated the zombies trying to make a home there and dumped their bodies outside. The building was then barricaded to EHB. A generator was placed in the building and it was refueled therefore re-establishing communications in Crowbank. The following tag was left letting the local population know that we were there, "Phone Mast: EHB! - Repaired by the BHN Rangers."

The Rangers successfully completed their second mission bringing literature back to the citizens of Wray Heights. Many studies have shown that the simple act of reading a novel or even a periodical can have very positive psychological effects on people who are in a long term survival situation. The Rangers targeted the libraries in Wray Heights eliminating the zombie menace and dumping their dead bodies on the street where they belong. The libraries were then barricaded to VSB allowing the citizens of Wray Heights a zafe zone to pursue their leisure activities.

The Rangers returned from the field today after completing their latest mission, "The Liberation of Pole Mall." This was a difficult mission fought behind enemy lines. The Rangers had to revert to guerilla tactics by sleeping in ruined buildings in order to stay in position to strike. This was an allied campaign as well, as members of the Flowers of Disease participated. Over a two week period, we laid siege to Pole Mall, reclaiming it from the zombies and barricading it up to EHB. We also liberated Clapton Stadium and brought it up to EHB as well.

The Blackhawk Nation declares war on the Angels of Mercy. One of our members was gunned down by the Angels of Mercy in Bubcar Towers. They claimed it was a mistake and that he should not have been killed. We retaliated by killing three of their members. They declared war on us at this point bringing us to where we are today.
May 22, 2008
The war with the Angels of Mercy is officially over. After losses on both sides, diplomacy brings an end to the bloodshed. We agreed that a mistake was made and one of our members was gunned down. We also agreed that we retaliated and killed three of their members. We may have been a bit overzealous in taking our revenge against them which brought us to war. After two days of fighting, we have come to terms and will remain neutral towards each other in the future. We are now at peace and no Angels of Mercy members are to be killed in the future.

The Rangers have successfully completed their latest mission, "The Liberation of Penny Heights." The Rangers performed an allied operation with the Penny Heights Police Department. They targeted the local resources buildings in the suburb and systematically restored order to this troubled region. They started by clearing Normandere Boulevard Police Department, Hagger Square Fire Station, Deacon Alley Police Department, Adler Crescent Fire Station, and the Craddy Building(NT). They then moved East clearing Langsford Drive Fire Station, Josephine General Hospital, Odo General Hospital, and Lumber Mall. After ten days of fighting, the final strike was made at the Rothwell Building(NT) bringing stability back to the region.

The Rangers have returned home after another successful mission, "The Liberation of Houldenbank." This was an allied operation with the Black Berets. Once again, the resource buildings were the main targets. Lucius General Hospital was the first target and was liberated quite easily. The Hosken Building(NT), Richard General Hospital, Solomon Lane Police Department, and the Owsley Building(NT) were the next targets. The hospital was taken easily. The other targets were a give and take affair. It turned into a battle of attrition. But in the end, the area was reclaimed from the zombie hordes. After six days of fighting, the Rangers are returning home.

The Rangers complete yet another mission, "Happy Hunting." People who were on our KOS list and zombie spies were the targets of this operation. For one month, the Rangers hunted down and exterminated those who have become our enemies. The operation proved to be a great success as we noticed a considerable difference on the streets as this operation came to an end. Those on the KOS list and zombies spies came to know that the Blackhawk Nation territory is not a home for them and they are not welcome. And that if they insist on being in the area, we will give them what they deserve.

The Blackhawk Nation took part in the Malton Uprising. This was an uprising against the DEM. We cleared the Blackhawk Nation homeland and the suburb of Vinetown of all DEM members. We actively sought out DEM members and put them down. We let them know that they don't control everyone. We let them know that they don't make all the rules. We got our point across and the DEM members in the area now realize that we are a force to be reckoned with.
The Rangers took part in the Crusade '08. The Crusade began on October 20th in Rhodenbank. We rolled through the SW corner of Rhodenbank and cleared it in one day. We moved on with the Crusade and the next target was Dulston. We went into Dulston on the 21st of October and concentrated on the NW corner of the suburb. We spend six days there fighting against the zeds. We were instrumental in clearing the NW corner of Dulston. On the 27th of October we moved on to Pescodside. Once again we targeted the NW corner of the suburb. We were able to clear it in only one day. On the 28th of October we moved on to Dunningwood. And in one day, we cleared the NW corner of Dunningwood. On the 29th of October, we moved to Pitneybank with the Crusade. And in one day, we cleared the NW corner of Pitney bank. We did some fighting in the SW of Piytneybank, but it was a give and take affair. Every time we gained some ground, the zeds launched a counter offensive and we were pushed back. We headed to Pimbank with the Crusade and retook Tynte Mall. We launched an attack on November 3rd and retook Tynte mall on November 4th. On the 5th of November, the Crusade headed to Ridleybank and began the assault on the heart of the RRF. We did quite a bit of damage in the SE corner of Ridleybank before the unavoidable came. The zeds did not take well to the invasion of their territory and answered back. On the 7th of November, the Crusade came to an end and we headed home. A successful campaign to the red zones had come to the end. But, we gained valuable experience and are looking forward to our next mission.

The Blackhawk Nation is relocating to Shackleville. It is time for a change and time to take the fight to the zeds. The time for waiting for the zeds is over. Now, it is time for us to take the fight to them. It is time for a new movement and the Blackhawk Nation will lead the way.

Blackhawk Nation liberates the center of Shackleville establishing its new base of operations. It didn't take long to clear the path and make our presence known.
January 3, 2010
"The Liberation of Shackleville" has been completed. On December 24th we decided to make it a priority to liberate the masses in Shackleville. We went to work and took the fight to the zeds. Buildings that were dark started to get repaired and the tide of the battle started to turn. Survivors began moving back in and the lights started coming on. On January 3rd the suburb went green and "the Liberation of Shackleville" was complete.
January 16, 2010
"The Kempsterbank cleanup" has been completed. On January 5th, the Blackhawk Nation went south to the suburb of Kempsterbank. Our goal was to turn the suburb green and retake all the resource buildings. We took Jilliard and Dobbs first. Then the fire stations were brought back on line. Then we went to work on the hospitals. St Matheos, St George, Neot, Titus, and Julie were all taken back and repaired quite easily. St Ferreol's was another story though. St Ferreol's is the home of St. Ferreol's Hospital Noise Abatement Society and they were not going to go down without a fight. It was a back and forth affair with the survivors unable to put the finishing touches on the zeds fast enough. Just when you thought it was about to be retaken, the zeds would stand up and the fight would start all over again. Things went on like this for days. Then on January 16th, an assault was launched and the zed numbers steadily decreased as they were shot down and thrown on the street one by one until finally the building was cleared. St Ferreol's was then repaired (40 AP's) and barricaded. And the Blackhawk Nation went home after a job well done.
