Domination of Eiler Journal #14

Operation Darkflower 2006B

Domination of Racine and Milwaukee, Wisconsin

What Is the Domination of Eiler?

In one sense, "The Domination of Eiler" is a political entity modeled upon the Holy Roman Empire. Which is to say, it works through national and local political entities, but transcends nation-state boundaries. You may already be a citizen without knowing it!

In another sense, "The Domination of Eiler" is a pen name for an amateur but very prolific web journalist. Perhaps you may enjoy these travel writings, given this simple guide:

  • The Domination of Eiler is led by, of course, the Dominator.
  • Its chief military force, and bodyguard of the Dominator, is the Domination Guard.
  • The Domination's world headquarters is in Palatine-Illinois, near Chicago - and Wisconsin. As such, Wisconsin is a target for Domination patrols.
  • After the success of the recent Darkflower offensive into Lake Geneva-Wisconsin, the Domination of Eiler feels like another weekend trip. Starting in January, the Domination's alliances and treaty commitments will prevent even a three-night, two-day weekend until at least April. So it's best to get one in now.

    As for the last offensive, the Domination force has chosen to drive only one hour away from EilerBase - and spend three nights there! Racine-Wisconsin has been chosen for occupation, based on really cheap accessibility to Milwaukee and Lake Michigan. This occupation will prove that no part of the Domination of Eiler is safe from patrol, not even the cheapest Wisconsin town between Milwaukee and Chicago..

    Operational Map

    Day 0: Saturday 9 December 2006

    Departure from the District of Dominance at about 5:30, after the completion of the Tuesday - Saturday Domination work week. Super 8 motel of Racine (or in suburb Mount Pleasant, depending on whether you ask the local government or the U.S. Post Office) is cheapest online vendor in the region; it was occupied at about 6:30.

    Day 1: Sunday 10 December 2006

    Milwaukee attractions are largely not open on Sunday. As it turns out, Racine attractions are largely not open on Monday. So today's a pure Racine day.

    Churches have been researched for Sunday morning goodness. But none of them put their schedules on the Web, and none are within walking distance. So, the Domination of Eiler will have to mount up on bicycle and take its chances. It's a bike day anyway; temperatures permit bicycle conquest!

    However, late start. Super 8 motel had a steam of loud checkins from 4 am onward, when presumably the last bars in town had just closed. Oh, joy. Presumably this won't be a problem tomorrow. Still, the Domination forces slept in. Force under way at 10:15 am.

    A full day of Domination. Hibernation sounds good now.

    Day 2: Monday 11 December 2006

    Fitness Program
    The Miller Brewery has a fitness program! See also:
    Pabst Mansion
    The Pabst Mansion has no beer, but it has lots of Xmas decor... no photographs inside, please.

    Two Milwaukee attractions are targeted: the Miller brewery tour, and the Frederick Pabst historic mansion. Domination force doctrine is, beer first, museum second, beer third. Therefore, despite opposition from highway construction barricades, expeditionary force on Miller site at 10 am.

    Then deployed downtown to see the Pabst Mansion.

    Subjugation of these targets required automobile excursion around downtown Milwaukee's Interstate 43 - 94 - 794 interchange - many of whose on and off ramps were closed. Hijinks ensued throughout the day.

    Having had enough of Milwaukee driving, the Domnation force retreated to Racine for lunch. There, Charcoal Grill cooperatively provided a prime rib sandwich and the Leinenkugel Apple Spice beer of Wisconsin. Best of trip, and near hotel too. A nap quickly ensued.

    Dining options limited, due to a combination of rain and busy cab drivers. (Domination force doctrine prohibits driving for dinner on mission days.) Most bars near hotel either highly crowded due to presence of good draft beer, or highly deserted due to lack of same. In the end, Newcastle Brown Ale and chocolate cake at Summit restaurant.

    And that's about it.

    Day 3: Tuesday 12 December 2006

    Rapid deployment to the District of Dominance, to start the work day at 1 pm. And, for inexplicable reasons, take a nap first. Hey, why not nap time every day?

    Ribbon of Domination

    The operation shows these signs of success:

    The Domination will admit to these operational shortcomings, though:

    But Domination of Eiler forces return triumphant as ever, all praise to the One Maker.
