Austrian soldiers, part of the Alpine Expeditionary Corps, surveying the outskirts of an abandoned hamlet close to the formal borders of Sopron. Circa 2009.
The expedition into the Hungarian Wastes, which reached the "sea of glass" that had been Budapest, was the last conducted under the Alpine Militia's watch. The findings of the personnel and researchers were published with formal endorsement by the Alpine Confederation and WCRB, confirming the still tumultuous conditions of the land separating the Alpine Confederation from Partium. Rumors would continue to circulate, however, involving still-classified data. Which, if they are to be believed, concern the discovery of a peculiar corpse not long after the photo above was taken.
