Now my son, sparch Medger. It is time. Tell the men to be ready tonight. It's time to strike. Perhaps this is our last conversation here on earth.  I know you would be a worthy successor if I should fall. Let the gods decide who they will call tonight.

"I thought that we will be in Tarkhnarb by now." complained Neera.
"I see that you are eager for battle." said Edwin.
"It's not that. I'm just sick of the desert. I'd like to see some greenery. Even if it's just swamp." explained Neera.
"Ahh, good old swamp with clouds of mosquitoes and smelly lizardmen." laughed Edwin.
"You are no fun at all." said Neera.
"Relax. We'll be on our way in a few days. In the meantime you could join the barbecue tonight." replied Edwin.
"Barbecue?" asked Neera.
"Yep. The Empire guards invited us to their centaur cookout." explained Edwin.
"I haven't seen any wild centaur around. Wait a minute! You mean the Big Bad scouts? We're supposed to eat them?" asked Neera in horror.
"We can't be choosy. We're out of food and my purse is empty. Tastes like dear. Old dear." said Edwin remembering similar times on another world a couple of years ago.

The village of Orgilaskalos has changed allegiance to a mix of Iron Harlequin and Peacekeeper forces.  Expect more of this in the future as we spread peace throughout the land.

Current issue for the faction is lack of orcs. Actually all around there is very few orc villages where more orcs could be recruited. Mostly there are gnolls, dwarves, elves and these are considered only as workers in this faction. A lower caste, although they are sent in battles nonetheless.

Meanwhile, despite previous defeats, orcs are again eager to scout out their enemies in east. Some are guessing that they may be guarding the Tarkhgar village and someone brave enough should just charge in and start battle there. There are enough volunteers for that.

Apparently Gwellynn, High Gamemaster of the Gamesters of Trisaklion, is not in as much danger as was suspected, and the odds makers have lowered the odds of his early demise.  It seems that he was caught sleeping, and survived.  The head of the Gamesters Collections Department, the Heir Apparent to the faction, entered Gwellynn's quarters, it is reported, and found him soundly sleeping, having failed to provide guidance to the faction.  The odds makers would have expected Gwellynn to be assassinated forthwith, but the the heir apparent simply woke Gwellynn up and requested his instructions going forward.  While the odds of Gwellynn's demise have gone down, the odds makers speculate that the heir apparent may not be a target, citing weakness and have started taking bets that he may soon be replaced.
