... the city guard building was ablaze. There were corpses of guards lying around. The citizens who supported the uprising, with torches and swords taken from the guards, rejoiced. One of them kicked the lifeless body of the guard, pulled down self pants and urinated on body.
Something turned over in his memory at that moment!
"How dare you perform a Ritual on someone who has lost the spark of life!" he cried. "The ritual is permissible only with the embryo of a new life! Heresy! Apostate!". In an inexplicable rage, he brought down his club on the head of an not understanding anything citizen. That tried to cover himself with his hands, but he was too late and fell like a sack at his feet. "What's wrong with me? Where does this anger come from?" he thought in horror. Something inexplicable was stirring in the back of his mind. Something connected with the past, hidden from him by a veil of oblivion. We need to figure this out, but in the meantime we need to explain his act to the believers. In the glow of the flames of the burning building he began to preach...

Greylords High Command announces:
As reported to us by peasants, members of the Monster Hunters killed in large numbers an innocent lone scout of the Greylords. A nefarious deed that happened while the scout was resting and did not suspect anything evil. His body was desecrated and dragged through the region by the Monstrous Hunters. Anyone who sees Monster Hunters, who also have a conspicuous 85 tattooed on their face, is hereby called upon to get to safety as quickly as possible and, if he can, to take revenge. The Greyloard forces are considering countermeasures.

From the diary of Gale Swifthands

The farewell party was a blast. We set sail with head splitting migraines. The ships are holding together. Irina decided to study magical healing. Ghorn and Argark decided to keep drinking. The rest of us are just suffering silently.
It turns out that a rival thieves' guild name Darlocks (107) has shown signs of activity in the area. One of our goblins had 17 silver [SILV] stolen. We have identified the culprit as Unit (3513) a lizardman from Quaskim but so far he has eluded capture.
We have arrived to Priscilla's homeland. She refused to leave the ship to stretch her legs. I guess she has bad memories regarding her birthplace. Either that or a bad conscience.

Reunited. Pt 1.

Some months ago…

During the tumbling and bumping of the fall Svyatoslav had tried to grab Kylie and somehow had lost hold of his pet. 

Baaa and Narochka awoke in a jungle.  Svyatoslav was nowhere to be seen. 
But at least they were alive. They had to live amongst the local lizardmen, helping with their primitive agriculture. In his spare time Baaa was already working on a still.  Soon there would be samagon. Bottle it, put a pretty label on it, and sell it to the dwarves for a pretty profit. Narochka liked a walk in nature. During one excursion she was resting on a log when it wriggled and threw her into the air. 
“Snaaake!” she screamed. 
“Im not a snake I’m a cuddly python.” it corrected “Want a hug?”
“Err, no thanks” answered Narochka, backing away. 
“Well never sit on me again then.” 
“Of course.” She promised, then ran. Her local excursions ended there. For what seemed like months nothing much memorable happened. Just work, sleep, and yakking with the locals. 

  Then a centaur scout appeared…

Rethu celebrates our fifth place status in furs.  Fifth place is our best score at anything.  We have been going steadily downhill since January, when we were tied with Melf for first place in leaders.  Rethu celebrates our steady downward slide in the rankings.  Thari Titthal wants to convert some of our furs to leather armor, but Rethu fears we will slide even farther down in the rankings if we allow any of our furs to be converted.

Kara Aslefa celebrates Thiyo Anaro's short life as an explorer.  Thiyo had heard that there might be weather in this world, and wondered where he might find it.  Thiyo rejoiced when he found a tower with clouds gathering overhead.  Thiyo tried to enter, but found this tower was clodes to player units.  Thiyo quickly sent a quick message by fast courier announcing his discovery to the rest of the Celebrants.  We have not heard from Thiyo since that final letter, but Kara did see a bright flash and rumble to the northwest.  Kara hopes Thiyo found his weather.  Kara will recruit another scout to send in the same direction to try to discover what happened.  Somehow, Kara feels this is a better task for a new recruit than for an experienced explorer like herself.

Yet Another Faction (9)
One day, as Karia roamed the forest glades, she stumbled upon a peculiar sight—a group of gnomes busily at work among the roots of an ancient oak tree. These gnomes, led by their ingenious leader, Tinkerthorn, were known for their inventive minds and their ability to create marvelous contraptions.

Karia watched in fascination as the gnomes tinkered with gears, pulleys, and levers, transforming the roots into a complex network of underground tunnels. Their eyes sparkled with excitement as they explained their project—a series of tunnels that would channel water to nourish the forest's deepest roots and ensure the well-being of the ancient trees.

Impressed by their ingenuity and their dedication to the forest, Karia approached Tinkerthorn and his gnome companions. She extended a warm greeting, and soon, they struck up a friendship as deep and enduring as the roots of the great oak.

Karia and the gnomes found common ground in their love for the forest and their desire to protect and nurture its wonders. They shared stories and knowledge, with Karia teaching the gnomes about the forest's secrets and the gnomes showing Karia the wonders of their mechanical creations.
