"Nice shot. I see you've overcome your inhibitions regarding killing goblins. Incoming!" shouted Edwin to Neera then sidestepped an incoming fireball which flew past him and struck a bunch of allied goblins killing six of them.
"You said that The Big Bad (23) mages were out of town!" screamed Neera hysterically from behind the flaps of the caravanserai.
"They must have returned to the sound of battle. You've noticed they are shooting from our eastern flank?" replied Edwin calmly.
"You said nothing about fighting enemy mages!" complained Neera still from cover.
"There's only two of them. And the Empire troops just got one. And there's the other one." said Edwin and launched another fireball at the mage then seeing the results he grinned and wiped his hands in his robe and continued: "And that's it. We're done. The danger is gone. You can come out now."
"Would you look at that?" said Neera still inside the serai.
"Found anythig good?" asked Edwin and stepped into the tent.
"A couple of crossbows and a bag of silver." smiled Neera then added: "No more mystery meat barbeque. We're feasting tonight."

Last month we had no battles. Seemed like nice month for me.
They had thought to find and kill one Njosn scout but it mysteriously disappeared and none could find it. It annoyed orcs. And someone stole one of our camels. That annoyed me, as I'm trying to do some bookkeeping here.

So orcs have become restless, and if they don't get to fight some bystanders, then they are now drawing straws who wins and get to charge neighbouring village guards. 
So we will have at least one fight next month.

Gwellynn, High Game Master of the Gamesters of Trisaklion, called the Unstable, appears to have lost his mind.  The odds makers have again increased the odds that he will be assassinated, and began taking bets that his epithet will be changed from The Unstable to The Insane.  Apparently, in an attempt to show that he is not weak after getting caught sleeping last month, has sent some gamesters with sticks to go poke at a Sphinx.  Of course, should the gamesters succeed at driving the sphinx out of gamesters' territory, he will be lauded, but should they fail...

It was not me
That killed your mage
It was not me
That stole your meal
It was not me
That drank your beer
It was not me
That forgot to submit my orders
I so love my sword
It is iron and solid.
It has a sharp sting
And a mighty brilliance too
When it laughs I feel happy
