November 9th, 1920 Geologists Lost Kulik and His Men Presumed Dead in Siberia

After months of speculation, the Russian government has finally called off its search for Leonid Kulik and his team of explorers. The expedition departed in mid-August to investigate the Podkamennaya River region in the Tunguska are, site of a mysterious explosion in 1908. Communications between Kulik and his comrades at the Academy of Sciences ceased a mere 20 days later. Rescue parties were then deployed and tasked with the mission of retracing Kulik's path, but returned empty-handed again and again. With the harsh Siberian winter starting earlier every year, the landscape has since become too unforgiving to traverse. Officials declared that the chances of survival in this region had withered away to none, especially given the length of time that had passed since the geologists first set out.

The final search party did manage to find evidence of Kulik's presence near the village of Vanavara, which included a camera and a page from his journal which was rolled up neatly and hidden in the splinter of a tree, its branches stripped bare over a decade beforehand. The entry read as follows: "The local population here, the Evenki people, has perpetuated a legend that their god, Agdy, came down from the heavens in a flourish of anger, causing the phenomena that was observable for hundreds of miles around. I fear that they were more accurate than I had initially believed. There was a vengeful entity that forced its way into our atmosphere all those years ago, but God has nothing to do with it. We will embark on our return trip to St. Petersburg at the first sign of sunlight tomorrow morning."
