This week has been very tense. Vohk has been a little stuck-up, Matu and Hoka have not been very social with the others, Rohko has been ornery and rude, and I have been too passive instead of being the peacemaker the way I usually am. I need to make an effort to get involved.

At least sharing provisions has not been a problem. We all agree to the fact that cooperation always accomplishes more work than solitary labor, but that doesn't mean that all of us have enjoyed it. Rohko, especially, has issues with sharing food.

I mentioned before that we were affected differently by the Visorak venom, Rohko and I. I was vague. Rohko has displayed a greater brutality level than before, and it has been slowly increasing. I get brutal impulses often.

We were strong enough to burst out before we were affected too badly, and our naturally strong immune systems also blunted it some. We are not in danger of falling into rage, but Rohko's tense emotions make it seem that he is. My impulses have gotten stronger slowly, and I fear for my peace of mind.

Recently we have been trying to put aside our differences for the greater good. Somehow I feel that this cooperation will come in handy later.

Vohk, who is fast enough to cross water, has seen an island that gleams off in the distance. We built a crude telescope, and sure enough, there it was, shining brightly.

Rohko, with widgets in his eyes, has ordered everyone to start making boats to cross the ocean. Despite his brutality and gruffness, he makes an excellent leader, if a little greedy.

We arrived at the island, despite our oddly terrifying trip. We were constantly being plagued by some tiny pirates with staffs. They seemed rather weak, but then one hurled Hoka aside, causing her to slam into the rail of our boat. They were short, clad in bright armor in shades of blue, green, and red, and knew what they were doing in combat.

I would have offered a peace agreement, but Rohko simply shot a spinner at the deck, and the shock wave knocked the trio off. Pretty wasteful, as I told him, but he thought we had enough "meddlesome wimps" already.
