LOYAL LADS OF THE B.O.N.D
I bid you all a warm welcome, in the manner to which we have become accustomed, to our most portentous viginti sextus thread!
As the Winter Solstice & Yule approach, theres is a chill in the air and the season of cold death is almost upon us. Temperatures drop and frost begins to accumulate. The now bare trees resemble gnarled and wizened fingers and the cold creeps its way across Sacred Albion killing plants, insects, homeless and pensioners.
Winter is nearly upon us lads but fret not - for in the coming conflagration, the cold - which we are built to withstand through generations, bloodlines and the ice age - will be one of our most potent allies against the desert & savanna dwelling invaders. We can withstand it, they cannot and once the gibs are gone and (hypothetical) nationalist militias are (hypothetically) targeting strategic infrastructure (ie: power grids in key areas) the chill will be a potent ally as it will play merry hell with the invading horde's metabolism. Take heart brothers for the cycle is nearing its completion.
<Remember, when the time comes - in the cold, things will heat up
