No matter how bad it is, never despair, hold on while you have the strength.
Darlocks (107)
Here at Mage School... but where are the professors?
Thornhaven (108)
I managed to escape from the Devil.

And it is not surprising but here in the underworld there are many people.

Maybe they are also running away from someone.
MMF (113)
The newly opened Thynbay Paradise Resort is booming! We did spot some trouble makers who had snuck in and weren't wearing their name badges so we had to kick them out. 

And received an offer of a visit to a Dwarven inn! We'd love to come. We'll bring some Rethwood casked rum once it's ready.
Idle Vice (12)
Underworld time! :D

... after the capture of the town, he was taken to the local library. A book lay open on the table, the sheets of which were made of thin leather. On the open page was described the legend of a terrible nightmare that lives in the mountains and kills everyone who met on his way. Legend had it that this nightmare guarded a hidden treasure, the possession of which could make its owner great. His Church needs this, his Faith in the Holy Deed must receive not only strength, but also glory, so that new followers hurry to join him.

The priest spun on his heel to regard her, one eyebrow cocked in unspoken question.

She met his gaze levelly.

SkyRaiders (46)
From the diary of Gale Swifthands

Today we went to visit our horsemen. Well, gnoll horse tamers. The girls and I watched them in amazement as they overpowered the wild horses and bent them to their will. Having tamed horses will speed up our movement significantly. If only I had confidence that we will be able to ride them good enough to make use of them. As a goblin I never really learned how to ride a horse. Thinking of what a wild horse can do to an inexperienced rider makes me question about our plans regarding horses.  As for the girls? Well, we all agreed that they can try out their cowgirl fantasies in the bedroom tonight.

One fisherman dreamed of catching a mermaid,
He got ready and went to sea early.
Only he caught a fish, but not a dream,
Then he decided to look for the kraken.
I tied the bait, threw the net,
And he waited for a long time, fell asleep.
But then he felt that the network had started...

Media sources are fleeing the area surrounding Greywolf's men. There is just not enough work to make a living.

Activity is so low amongst both the leadership and men that there is simply nothing to report.

They lie around all day doing nothing and are pretty much starving.

February, Year 2

The winds of change blow in our favor. Our forces, under the command of The Enforcer, have successfully purged the plains of Inteng, ridding them of the Tribe of Centaurs that once roamed there. Their swift defeat is a testament to our growing strength and the might of the Obsidian Shadow.

In the depths of the underworld, our settlers have reached the entrance to a vast forest. The potential of this new land is immense, and I can feel the pull of its dark magic. It beckons us, promising power and resources beyond our wildest dreams.

Above ground, our battle group is strategically positioned near an independent settlement. Soon, it will be under our dominion, and its inhabitants will know the protection and order of the Obsidian Shadow.

And in the vast expanse of the sea, our ship, carrying another group of settlers, has set sail. The horizon is vast, and the possibilities are endless. The world will soon witness the rise of the Obsidian Shadow, and none shall stand in our way.

Spain grew rich from the gold and silver it found after conquering native civilizations in Mexico and South America. It soon afterwards found itself poor as it cleansed itself of immoral living. 
Is there a lesson here ?

Reunited. pt 9. 

There were troubling signs and times around the regions inhabited by the allied factions. The clan wild men had split up into smaller groups after emerging from their quiescence in the jungle ruins. A tribe of centaurs had attacked a small band of scouts in the northern plains, wiping them out. Luckily, in a few months s trickle of crossbows should turn into a flood and those small problems will disappear. 
But rumours of a bizarre underworld ritual were spreading.  An of the allies swore he saw it with his own eyes. Thirty goblins of a single faction, each on his own, and each carrying a separate unit flag, all in the same cavern, had offered themselves to a demon. Who had promptly and gratefully roasted them with one breath of hellfire. WTF is going on there?  And how to deal with that faction, who had appeared in their midst from nowhere?

Ed celebrates the lives of many guardsmen.

Minty celebrates land that goes on, and on, and on, and on.

Hesss Owenss celebrates water that goes on, and on, and on, and on.  Hess Owenss celebrates large seas.  Hess had no idea that anywhere in the world there was water so far from land.  How do the natives make nets without herbs?  Why is there no seaweed in Atlantis?  And how do they move their stone without caravanserais?  The deep ocean is a strange place.  Hesss hopes he discovers land soon.

Zorion celebrates wine.  Let the northerners have their palette burning VODK, wine will be good enough for Zorion's trading.

Ninsunir of the northeast celebrates spinning wheels.  The tools of the fibre arts are so much more useful than the metal tools.  Metal tools are hardly worth the effort.  But spinning wheels now, spinning wheels are different, a single spinning wheel is as good as many months of study.

Yet Another Faction (9)
The forest elves lived in perfect harmony with the creatures of the woods, sharing a kinship with foxes, owls, and deer. They tended to the flora, ensuring the woods thrived with vibrant colors and lush greenery.

Underneath the silvery moonlight, they danced in a delicate ballet, their laughter harmonizing with the rustle of leaves. Their songs, sung in the ancient language of the forest, wove spells that protected their home from harm.

In the heart of the woods, where the starlight filtered through the leaves, the forest elves embodied the beauty and wonder of the natural world. Their stories, whispered by the wind and carried by the streams, were cherished by all who ventured into their realm, for they told tales of magic, unity, and the timeless spirit of the forest.

Chapter 8: Shadows in the Wilderness
After the end of the conclave the missionaries spotted Tyranny(51) representatives in the far west inhabiting a small northern town. Apparently our tribe have established the western border.  

While the Revenge of Cone's fame and influence spread, a dark threat loomed on the horizon. Ogres, lurking in the forests, lizardmen in the rivers, and unseen monsters of the swamp began raiding their outlying settlements. Stories whispered of these creatures, united under a dark banner, challenging the very heartlands of the tribe. Two ogres had made a camp right next to the future capital city of the tribe.
