* I. Want. Dragons!
* Sir, as you wish ... we might be able to delegate the counter espionage fields to one of your disciples.
* If they don't want Dragons I don't care.
* No, Sir. They consider surviving a higher priority to having dragons...
* That is why I am head mage and they are not.
* No, Sir. You are head mage, because you had the fortune of a father higher in the hierarchy than theirs.
* You are the most rude chancellor I've ever had, one could think you are head of the empire instead of me.
* Sir, I lean on the fact that you need me to run this empire because you don't want to be bothered, and that you can not find anybody to be willing to clean up your messes all the time.

The rest of the towns in the district will join the True Faith without him. Now he will focus on two things. The construction of temples and the fight against heresy. The construction of temples will require resources and skilled hands, and heresy needs to be burned out with a hot iron. And that requires an army. And the army needs trained warriors and weapons.
He stood and looked to the north. Something from his past life stirred in him at the mention of the North. Irritation at the edge of consciousness. The inexplicable and irrational. The same as the mention of heresy. Maybe it was somehow connected. It is necessary to continue the study of the Holy Book... Maybe the answers will be there.

However, malcontents in the town and city guards has led to some fighting in three of the settlements the Clan has now claimed.  Foreign agents are suspected of turning a peaceful takeover into one where guards and clansmen have lost their lives.  

Underhanded tactics are not welcomed by the clan and anyone found guilty of espionage, assassination or bribery will be dealt with by the Clan court, with an appropriate severity of penalty.

The Children of the Four Winds listened to the great economics reports again.
"We're number one in stone!"
The chief of works pointed out this was because they quarried it, but not enough builders had been trained to use the production yet.
"We're number two in camels!"
The general of cavalry pointed out that was because most of the faction lived in a desert, with only a handful of centaurs living on a plain.

This was greeted by nodding. At least the industrial capacity of the Children was notable.

We have safely arrived to Akluckmi. The gnolls are friendly. They don't suspect a thing. We are recruiting in secret. Soon the city will be ours. Shakaa is eager to try his tricks against the guards. He is dividing the troops for a pincer maneuver.
Irina is livid because I asked her to help save some of the wounded after the battle is over. I hope I don't have to rely on her skills myself. Not that I don't trust her abilities but she is not too gentle when it comes to bedside manners and patient care. You can trust me on this one.

November, Year 1

The winds of change blow in our favor. Today, the Order of Obsidian Shadow banners fly high over Pami'o village. With their unmatched prowess, the Raider Company B routed the City Guard in Daprat's forest. Though victory came at a cost, the spoils of war are ours. The centaur peasants of Pami'o now look to us for guidance, and their coffers have bolstered our treasury.

Whispers of a drow city named Feldsale reached my ears. A city of our kin, it beckons us with promises of a familiar haven. It might just be the perfect place to expand our dominion.

But the most exhilarating news of all? Our drakkars are ready to slice through the waves, with a crew eager to explore and conquer. The vast seas await our might, and I can't help but wonder what new horizons we'll discover.

The Order's influence grows, and with each passing day, our legacy is etched deeper into the annals of history. Onward, to greater glory!

The scout soon recruited a band of local toughs, gave them whispered instructions and left the region. His band were seen  practising the basics of violence. Punching and kicking. Then chopping and stabbing with substitute weapons - nothing but harmless pieces of wood. Then some attempts at working together as group. The peasants laughed at their comical efforts.  “Lizards acting like Orcs” taunted an old sailor “If you want an adventure go to sea.”

Yalumi Ofuru colebrate the lives of Neyi and two clansmen.  It seems that some trees got out of Yalumi's forest and ventured into the plains, causing some distress to the plainmen.  Yalumi hope the trees will come back to the forest, and not stay out in the plains causing problems.

Mubo Sakor celebrates the lives of the Punker squad that somehow upset the usually peaceful kobolds of this woods.  Perhaps after performing the appropriate rites Mubo Sakor should move on; these kobolds seem a mite unfriendly to the new races coming into the forest.

Ashuray celebrates a Tailenders scout who is helping to protect us all from the dangers underneath the earth by trying to dissuade anyone from entering the shaft.  It is so kind of the Tailenders to protect the rest of us.  We wonder, however, why the scout blocks the top of the shaft and not the bottom?

Yet Another Faction (9)
With scales that glisten like polished sapphires, the Ice Dragon's immense body is a testament to the stark, chilling environment it inhabits. Its scales seem to capture the essence of the glacial ice, reflecting the ethereal blue hues of a frozen sea. The dragon's body is sinuous and powerful, with a lithe grace that defies its massive size.
Its eyes are the deepest shade of icy blue, akin to the heart of an ancient glacier. They exude a wisdom forged through centuries of solitary existence in the unforgiving cold.
Dragon's wings are a marvel of nature's design. They stretch out like vast canopies of crystalline ice, with translucent membranes that shimmer when they catch the pale light of the northern sun. 
While it is a guardian of the Northlands, feared by some and revered by others, it possesses a deep compassion for those who struggle in the harsh wilderness. In times of need, it descends from its icy roost to provide shelter and warmth to those lost or endangered, serving as a symbol of both awe and protection.

Among them were the Fon(69), known for their ancient knowledge, and Gyperboreya (4) and Incompetence Unlimited (28) scouts and informators that visited many of tundras and swamps of Cone's lands.

Seranis called a council. "The time is near when we shall face others, but fret not. Our aim remains a mystery even to ourselves, but our faith in Conus Mysticus is unwavering. It will guide us in times of uncertainty."
