We had come to a spoken agreement with the american flag group that we were cool with each other. Little did we know of the hive mind that the lattice had grown to possess. Out of our control, the lattice ripped through the american flag. To be fair they had started expanding and we weren't too happy about that, but being so early into the place we hadn't figured out diplomacy yet. We figured just telling people to not destroy it would be enough. That was our first brush with the hivemind of the lattice.
