(The following battle report is going to be strange. You are going to think that I am on crack, or LSD, or some other hallucinagenic drug. I assure you, I am not. The following is an example of a type of story called "stream of consciousness," and believe it or not, in some literary circles, this kinda stuff is prime cut. If you don't like it, tough. I'd like to see you come up with a better way to portray a game from the viewpoint of a Zerg overlord.)


(Based on a game played on Lost Temple between Spicoley [Zerg, Orange, 12:00] and Ve||()cet [Protoss, Teal, 9:00] on November 18, 1999.)



Greetings, noble Zeratul. As you may or may not be aware, our group of warriors had been charged with studying the Zerg by our late Matricarch. Ironic it is, that we should be set to study those which have brought her demise...yet we believe we have made some astonishing discoveries in the past weeks.

Using the combined psionic energies of several of our most highly regarded High Templar, we recently tapped into the mind of one of the Zerg's controlling minions, the overlord, in our most recent sortie with this nefarious race. The following is the result of our mind-tap, as set to words directly from the creature's mind.

I can only pray that these findings may somehow aid your quest in destroying the Queen of Blades, and that this study reaches you in time to be able to do so.

The Zerg base was quickly overrun and destroyed by our superior forces. I hope that you have been able to gleam some knowledge of our opponents from this report, and it will somehow assist you in your endeavors against the Swarms.
