Freedom Phalanx Fails in Aggressive Act
-written and photographed by Necrochantress
It was your average day in the Rogue Isles, and I was innocently minding my own business when the call came out:
Recruits were needed as those so-called "heroes" from the mainland of Paragon City decided to launch an aggressive, completely unprovoked attack on our sovereign homeland. Those vile Longbow soldiers appeared through portals, blatantly attacking those who were going about their day to day activities. I think I saw one Longbow soldier kick a puppy, too!
But the close knit community of the Rogue Isles quickly sprung into action to help their fellow Rogue Islanders, and those vile Longbow soldiers were soon back on their heels and reeling from the united front, probably expecting us to cower in their presence. NEVER!
As the body count increased, it must have been apparant to the second string Freedom Phalanx flunkies that they had completely underestimated the will of us Rogue Islanders, and the call was send out for the big guns. The Back Alley Brawler appeared and started attacking the innocent bystanders. In the second shot you can even him running right at me! I was just standing around, minding my own business and he attacked me! The nerve of the man!
Those nearby couldn't just stand by and watch this man launch an unprovoked attack on an innocent woman (me!), so they were compelled to use the only method this aggressor seemed to understand to stop this madness - physical force.
If that wasn't enough, another of those so-called "Heroes" showed up, though this one spent more time running around like a jackrabbit than actually attacking Rogue Isle citizens. His name was Synapse, and even though I'm sure he was running around to avoid anyone catching him breaking Rogue Isle laws and attacking citizens, I was able to catch him doing just that below
Synapse was very difficult to track, however, as his speed prevented me from getting more than one good shot of him breaking the law. This is one of those failed attempts; you can see Synapse running off to the left and I only succeeded in catching a picture of his leg and back
More and more Longbow arrived, and the battle was intense. We fought in the streets, on the beaches, and in the water.
While Synapse and Back Alley Brawler had a good taste of 'Rogue Isle hospitality' and retreated, one Freedom Phalanx member seemed to enjoy the punishment we dished out on her, or maybe she was just so brainwashed by the Freedom Phalanx that she actually believed we deserved to be attacked! Whatever the reason, her name was Agent Kirby, and I only hope she eventually sees the err of her ways and joins us in the Rogue Isles, as she was an excellent fighter and not afraid to take a punch. I'm sure she would be welcomed with open arms as soon as she renounces that despicable Freedom Phalanx organization
But even the will of Agent Kirby was not nearly enough to defeat the close knit, caring community that exists in the Rogue Isles, and eventually all the attackers had been beaten back to the portals from which they came. With the vile Freedom Phalanx attacking force defeated, there was only one thing left to do - celebrate!
I thank all my fellow Rogue Islanders for joining together in defense of our nation, and wish good health and long life to our leader, Lord Recluse.
