Memorandum For Record: Semiannual update for SOP 41156 “Vasarius”
Per Chapter 83 of Imperial Doctrine Document 2107 (Protocol for Sentient Observation Posts), this paper is the semiannual update for sentient life on the plant designated “Vasarius.” Enclosed on pages 2-18 of this report are the specific identifiable cultures and their current circumstances. Included is one additional culture overlooked by the original survey team as a counterpoint to two distinct but comparable cultural developments.
(Audio recorded: “I just think the death cult idea is cool, I mean, look at them.” [ID= SSG Justin Garcia, ANTH] “Justin, I swear to the Gods that if that gets leaked into the report, I’m going to throw you down there with them.” [ID=SFC Marissa Precaola, ANTH] “Both of you shut up. I need to get this done before the CO decides to have me clean the filters over another late report.” [ID= 2LT Nico Nova, ANTH]).
A notable feature of this plant is that while it contains three major continents, most Sentient activity is centered on two continents, and a smattering of islands around the equator, the third central continent has no significant development.
Several of the chosen cultures appear to possess rudimentary agriculture and architecture, some form of proto cities. In contrast, others are more nomadic with little change from ancestral tracings consistent with reports from designation “Melico” and designation “Narnia” but at odds with report designation “Galicia,” whose cultures all developed along the same lines at the exact times.
Island cultures are startlingly more developed than mainland cultures, living in identifiable villages, intricate social beliefs, and possessing either complex land or nautical food sources.
The mainland cultures are nomadic, often breaking up into smaller groups that collect from specific areas, then return to a designated spot on a quarterly or semiannual basis to trade goods, services, and occasionally responsibilities.
Savanna and grassland cultures utilize different techniques to hunt their prey, either complex socially intricate plans or more straightforward persistence hunting being the two most noted by field teams.
Our choice for proto warfare analysis continues to develop, one preferring to create complex and potentially detrimental equipment. At the same time, the other seems to be relying on the safety in numbers approach. Nevertheless, our military analyst teams continue to be enthusiastic in their reports.
(Audio Detected “Don’t blame me for actually liking my job” [ID= 2LT Henry Volkist, MTD] “Don blane me for liking my jobb” [ID= 2LT Nico Nova, ANTH] “I don’t sound like that” [ID= 2LT Henry Volkist, MTD], Analysis: 93% Match)
Report Compiled by 2LT Nico Nova, ANTH, at the behest of LTC Andrea Mesa, SOP Command Officer, SCI. (Computer, be sure to scrub outside audio before submission next time, on another note, please inform Captain Carter that I would very much like a word with Lieutenants Nova and Volkist before their next shift)
