Times Turn 14

Hey! Onions! You see these rich people in the town? You go there, tell two or three jokes, sing a little song, spit some fire and... What? You can't spit fire? Hum... I thought every Jester knew how to spit fire... So... What about... Juggling, maybe? OK. Oh, and if they're not cooperative tell the Cucumbers : they have Swords...

The general examined the wreckage of the small mine in the underforest. It appeared that some creatures must have attacked. His scout found a pile of droppings, bent over to sniff and said "Trolls sir, they seem to have dined on drow elves recently."
"Not to worry, we'll track these down. Who knows - maybe these are the trolls we are questing for!" shouted the general.
"Unlikely sir", replied his scout, "there's five packs down here. Who knows which is the right one?"

Big, dumb and weatherproof. This is similar as Trolls, but Ogres are bigger. They are also more dumb. If one of this champs is moving, he can't be argued out of it, not with words nor with steel. It should be mentioned at this point, that this fellow-denizens of Atlantis are also fireproof. We acquired this information first hand from magicians who have tried to stop them with fireballs. Maybe we should substitute 'firsthand' with 'firstpulp' in this context (make it bloody, unsavoury pulp).
Nekojin Empire (19)
First Great Acerne's Mage Convention has been a complete success.

One of the most spectacular acts in the Convetion was a demonstration of force in the City of Bad'Al'And. After the Convention five new mages joined the School of Mighty Magic in Plunwick.

The Lizards (20)
As our first sailors and swimmers set out to sea, we discover it is a hostile place. Pirates and Merfolk abound, and more dangerous things as well. The land feels much more comfortable knowing what lurks beneath the waves.

Then again, the appearance of a Roc may lead us to reconsider that position.
Jax (21)
If we agree that the material world created an unknown mind, perhaps God, or gods, or demons, then we must find the answer, and where did this mind come from? Who created it or them? Suppose God or the gods themselves were created out of nothing, and then created the mechanism of evolution of the material world or due to arbitrary informations, unknown energy, evolution, etc., which naturally should have existed before them.
The question arises, who created this nothing or what came before God...

Red Skulls (34)
(Rhedom is overpopulated, we need to cast special spell, so all here have something to eat. I wonder when Dii Minores and Frozen Snails will go away. Is there a way to speed them up? There are days, when one can't simply walk through narrow alleys of mountain town, all around - nothing but troops, resting, healing, stealing, taxing, practicing (also on citizens, only at night). These of Minores are the "worst", no cow, no hidden stash or pile of silver, no dwarven woman can feel safe.)
Atlantis Explorers (35)
After this victory, many things were still to be accomplished! The next city to take was in sight and the territories to exploited had been explored. Another thing to decide was who would be the friends and the foes...

Disasters Inc (43)
Riding like the wind, the Reverend Mothers with the Fremen stormed two cities on two months. No time to rest, no time to study, no time to listen to the Holy Word. When the war would be over, they could rest. Would this time come? Should this time come?
Bene Gesserit (45)
Though the night is best for such things, a long planning session and the constant pressures of leadership give rise to a great need for rest.  Battle plans proceed apace, the next months will be simpler.
The Darkest Night (48)
Uthark and the others led their horses down the windig cave system that was said to lead into the underworld. The animals were skittish and scared and moved their legs hesitantly on the rocky floor. They could hardly see in the torchlight.
Uthark had a bad feeling. His instincts told him that they were not alone. But no matter how he strained his eyes and his hearing he could not pick out anything in the darkness.
"Where the hell are our scouts?" Uthark asked aloud from nobody in particular. They hired the best from Bactgill but they were all human, almost useless in darkness below ground.
"They are dead. If they were the best you can afford you should turn back Uthark Stormfist, while you and your companions still draw breath." came voice from ahead. It sounded melodic and feminin. All they could see were a pair of red eyes in the darkness.
"You seem to know my name. I'm yet to learn yours." Uthark said while signaling his followers to stay alert but not to engage. So far they only had a single target.
"My name is Adrica." the owner of the voice said and the pair of red eyes moved closer and continued: "Your scouts mentioned you while they descended. They walked like a stampeding rothé herd. I heard them from a mile. They were loud and stupid. You and your companions are also loud. Are you stupid as well?"
"Some of us may seem that way." Uthark said with a frown glancing at Giblet and the others around him then continued: "But looks might be deceiving. Now why would a lone drow lady venture so close to the surface to meet me and my merry band of misfits?"
"Who says I'm alone?" The drow asked and stopped right outside the circle lit by torchlight. Uthark had infravision and could see her clearly. A slender female drow. Quite tall for her kind. About 5 and a half feet. Silvery hair, dark skin. Sharp features. Not too bad. Tattered clothes. Less arrogant than most of her kind. Must be an outcast. Uthark hated surface elves but he decided that drow elves were OK. He answered:
"If you weren't alone then we would probably be engaged in a deadly battle by now."
"True. My kind does not like surface dwellers." Adrica said and looked Uthark in the eye with a strange expression. What was it? Humor? Mischief? Defiance? Perhaps all three.
"So what are you doing here?" Uthark asked.
"Isn't it obvious? I'm your new guide." the drow said.
"Well, you certainly seem more capable than your predeccessors. Welcome to Noizy Tribe."
Noizy Tribe (49)
Here we are again!
   We cannot hide it anymore, the truth is out. All the local graveyards are empty. More or less fresh corpses gone as food, their skeletons serve us as… yeah you guessed it - skeletons. Making servant skeletons from not so fresh corpses is a work in progress. 
   Need to feed grows stronger, time is near to start another reduction of  inferior or surplus people by selective slaughter. Which ones should we select? The culling cannot be delayed for much longer.

The Lost King threw the scroll in the fire. With the neighborhood, it would be hard to find a place here. But this report about a kind of gate in the mountain was interesting. May be a safe and promising place was hiding down there?
Lost Kingdom (69)
Lieutenent Crakow said, "my King we have found a new way to contact the scouts!" He triumphantly placed a small globe on the table.

King Sabaton looked into the globe. A centaur was making a motion to be quiet. On the ground was some silver and an odd shimmering metal. Slowly he drew a small blade and moved to the metal. He raised the blade high to strike... And flames from the left of screen washed over our poor heroic centaur. Then nothing happened. The image shoot and a huge scaly head bumped the blackened remains over. It started out from the globe where our hapless hero had been. The dragon coughed some flame towards the viewers and the image went dead.

Lieutenent Crakow looked from the globe to the King and back to the globe again. He barely whispered: 
"I think we need to train our scouts better."
