The western part of the island, the ancient forest of Dafolk, is declared a sanctuary by the Sidhe.  Visitors who wish to meditate in the silent glades and seek the eternal truths may ask for passage.  Those who wish to trade should contact us as well.  We have all the products the forest gifts us.  We are willing to make plant-based fresh arrangements.  Green New Deals as it were.

Rinne an Sidhe greannmhar!
The Sidhe (11)
Upon encountering several others (or their representatives,) pulled from their homes, like myself, I have decided that strong diplomatic bonds are required. In doing so, should any wish to traverse my lands in small numbers, they are welcome, in return for petitioning access. All are welcome to the party, that come with open arms, and truth in their eyes.

"Fetch the quills, scribe", announced the ambassador. "We must send more letters. Heat up the sealing was and prepare the messenger pigeons!"
 "Excuse me sire", said the scribe, "but there is a magical method."
"WHAT? What bizarre nonsense is this?"
"I've heard tell that all the diplomacy involves a magic piece of cord", replied the hapless scribe. "At least they keep pointing and saying This-cord, This-cord."
The ambassador shook his head. Surely this silliness would never catch on.
Children of the Four Winds (13)
Emperor was looking onto map and trying to figure out how to build roads across empire so that it will give most benefit... that was not an easy task. His economy advisor told that there are no economical benefit to build roads and weather is always clear, it wont speed up armies.

For Emperor that sounded quite unbelievable... how come road will not increase economy? Does all traders don't care is there road or not?

Maybe, instead of a road, it is better to build citadel?

Emperor closed map and decided to put this question on hold, till he will speak again with his advisor.

Pride of Lions (Plain)
Lions are very dangerous, mostly hungry, large and yellow felines. The last fact is only given, so the observer can distinguish them for example from Tigers (who are very dangerous, mostly hungry, large and orange with black stripes). On second thought, since all large felines tend to be hungry and dangerous regardless of their colour, the observers should not waste time to classify them in zoologically terms, but try to differ them from themselves in geographically terms.

Fresh air comes to the old caverns too. In Cockwork you can hear the dwarves sing
The Lizards (20)
As scouts begin to explore the underworld, many in this world begin to discover that not all is as it seems. New races and resources are discovered, new opportunities found, new boundaries drawn and crossed. How this will impact life on the surface remains to be seen.

The Elf gave the scroll to the messenger. This month will see the people of the forest take the city and get rid of the occupying forces. 
Orcinius was old, weak and slow but with the wise advises of some neighbors (and a bit of a help, had to admit the Elf), people of the forest would finally become independent and prosperous!
Silver Hand (27)
I need more silver.

Ordo Hereticus (30)
Is there a group, which pretends to be world gandarme or at least Sherrif from Nottingham?
Group contracting potentional assassins, protecting 'random' factions, randomly collecting data about random gates ? 
Group willing to pay resonable sum of silver for a head of Master Ruri? We all know Master Ruri is great person but as he claims his greatness and importance is still in far future, waiting to be unrevealed..
Is  Money Stockpillers INC part of this group ? Visible part ? Is there a invisible web of connections crystalizing in shadows ?
This month unfortunate incident affected some ambassador, who's only crime was not telling a single word inspite of beign Ambassador. Who will soothe his death with promise of revenge, hidden between money-gibberish words?
 So many questions.

Red Skulls (34)
'Master! One of our ambassadors sighted a Giant Bird in a Lair to the west. What shall we do?'
'He shall run away as fast as possible! Our miners are digging iron ore, our weapon smith produces swords and our soldiers are learning the art of war. It is not now, that we are ready to deal with dangerous monsters.'
Atlantis Explorers (35)
Wonderful world - dungeon! Here, the thick dark woods are juxtaposed with underground cities and villages. In the huge caves are horrible dragons. Be careful, danger lurks at every turn.
Gyperboreya (38)
Translation of the ancient tablets was completed.

There is a way to worship Old Ones, gods of the this world. They seems to be different, some demand people sacrifices but grant a great power to their worshipers, others want to free this world from evil creatures.

Rumors stated that someone who will build a Temples and worship gods of Atlantis will get a big power and gifts from them.

But sacrifices?...
Fremen (4)
The Council was nervous. Despite the security measures, some foreigners had managed to enter the city. Through a magic portal they said.
The Council had a simple policy: living friends or dead threats, the new comers would have to choose...

Moulder (2877) did not want to wait any longer. He sketched some basic tactics and sent Skelly (2879) in to observe the Yeti (300). They were quite lucky finding it asleep in its Ruin [1]. She gave the word and 60 happy gnomes picked up pebbles in their slings and tossed them all at the same time on Yeti (300). It woke up with a big jump, knocked its head on the ceiling, got a serious head injury and fell down again unconscious.

The gnomes then went in en masse. They tried to toss more pebbles at it, but those just bounced off its pristine white fur. They tried to stab it with their steely knives, but they just couldn't kill the beast.

Moulder (2877) used his exceptional gnome strength and carried another gnome into its gaping mouth. The Yeti (300) asphyxiated in... about 6 minutes. The mission was a success! The gnomes had no casualties. The combat report was later doctored to instead reflect on their superior combat abilities.

The gnome luck struck again! The Yeti was using an admantium ring mail as a glove. This is a treasure unlike any that exist in the world today. It will be auctioned off to cover expenses and new housing for peasants of the Clatpe'ach tundra.
Disasters Inc (43)
The cooperation with the Fremen was perfectly working. The cities fell one after the other in front of their power. 
But other factions were less sensitive to the power of the Voice... The Bene Gesserit would need time to create the appropriate environment to disarm the threat and gather all the good willing factions against the Great Enemy.
Bene Gesserit (45)
The shadows writhe as excitement builds.  The balance has been misaligned for far too long.  Soon, this will be rectified, and a new peace will enter the world.  Whether or not it comes stillborn remains to be seen.
The Darkest Night (48)
Uthark woke up to the smell of smoke and when he left the house he was sleeping in and looked around he buried his face in his hands.
"Giblet you miserable little twerp." he sighed as he watched the village of Jyrholm in flames.
They arrived less than 8 hours earlier and took the tundra village without casualities. Even Giblet managed to avoid lighting anything on fire. Well, apart from some unfortunate village guards. After the village has been conquered and they had filled their pockets and belly and the night fell they retired into the houses of the former guards to be sheltered from the icy cold.
"Boss, the fire is spreading quicky. Shall we attempt to protect at least a few of the houses?" Ryzzar asked.
"Nah. We are done here. Gather everybody and bring everything you can salvage to the rafts. And find Giblet for me." Uthark growled and started walking towards the harbor.
"Mmaster. Giblet is so very sorry!" he heard the voice of the goblin behind him.
Uthark forced himself to calm down. Followers with affinity to magic was hard to come by in the badlands and the goblin was a natural talent. If only there was a way to control his clumsy mistakes. He swallowed a dozen of rude remarks and only said one word: "Explain."
"Nightses are soo soo cold here in tundra. Giblet was freezing so Giblet started a fire in the house master said Giblet should sleep in."
"You were to stay in the dwarven smithy. The fireplace and furnace were built from stone. That building could handle the heat from a furnace. What the hell did you do?
"Giblet was so very cold. Furnace was empty and too big for Giblet to fill so I built small fire pit out of black rocksies on the floor. I filled it with wood and..."
"Wait a minute! Black rocks? You built a fire pit out of coal?" Uthark asked.
"Giblet didn't know what it was. Black shiny rocksies. There was a huge pile of them in the smithy."
"I see. What happened next?"
"Fire too big. Stonsies started burning. I found big barrel full of liquid and poured it on fire."
"Let me guess. Dwarves use oil to quench steel instead of water?"
"Yes." the small goblin said in a whisper. He expected his master to strike him dead but to his surprise Uthark started laughing. "This will teach me not to house you with anything flammable. I thought that the smithy would be the least likely to be burned down but obviously dwarven builders did not take you into account when they designed it. Come to think of it how is it that you were alone in the smithy? Where were the others?"
"Ohers don't like Giblet because I am too clumsy and now afraid of Giblet because I know fire magick." the goblin said sadly.
"All right. Here are your orders: You are not to leave my sight and not to light anything on fire unless I say so." Uthark said then added: "You will learn some earth lore next. Can't imagine what destruction you could do with that." Silently he added only to himself: 'But I'm sure you'll figure something out.'
Noizy Tribe (49)
Here we are again!
   Inviting that spying Ambassador to our feast worked, but there was not enough of him for everyone because our neighbors decided to join too as if they didn't eat all the fine meat of Sabrina. Ambassador was eaten twice as quick and left the feasting crowd still howling in hunger. Should we really invite more Ambassadors to our settlement just to eat them and add their skeletons to our armies? Prudent commander wouldn't do that. We need a better solution. Ask friends to grow food for us? Do we have friends?

Everywhere we walked there was already some unit that had gotten there first. Apparently land was in short supply. Pity that Maker did not make more of it, main Walker sighed. Will need to hire gnolls to tax those deserts. We need money. Need a lot of money to stop Devourer. Maybe we can bribe him?!
Brave Walkers (51)
That was sad about Sabrina. Magic teachers will train new teenagers. Even better. Will use money form insurance well.
Caraconteo (60)
Nobody in sight? that was strange... He would expect to meet somebody in these new territories. But apart some guards in the cities, none around. Opportunity or trap?
Lost Kingdom (69)
King Sabaton looked at Crakow, "We need to keep those high elves happy."

Lieutenent Crakow replied, "They keep saying they are higher than us and disobeying orders."

King Sabaton replied, "Threaten to cut off those herbs they like to smoke if they don't help us more. If that doesn't work let's grind them under our heel."

Rumors

Looks like chilled escargot's back on the menu, boys!!
Red Skull is an evil faction who will betray its foolish followers! What kind of people would have chosen such a name ?
a member of Skalperians faction has committed a theft AGAIN. For such crime Skalpers himself will be hanged by the neck until dead. We are considering hanging him by other body parts. Choice has not been made yet
In inns, they gossip that if Black Tower guys build tower and paint it black, then it will be signal for Devourer to come.
Sabrina (610) needs to get a life.
