Edwin and the others watched as the fleet split in two and the Empire departed downstream towards Metanokles.
"Are you sure that this is a good idea?" ask Neera.
"What? Splitting the fleet?" asked Edwin. Then seeing the her nod he started to explain: "The fleet has grown too big for any coastal settlement to sustain both armies. And our combined numbers were an overkill for the tasks we expect to perform."
"Overkill? We barely have fifty soldiers!" exclaimed Neera.
"I said combined forces. We have a few months to reach our next target. In the meanwhile we're heading back to Tarkhnarb to resupply and hire more men." said Edwin.
"We'll need more ships as well." said Neera.
"Rafts." Edwin corrected her.
"Rafts. Whatever." said Neera and shrugged.
"We'll have two more built as soon as we land in Tarkhnarb. I sent word to our woodcutters to prepare the wood. Our shipbuilders will just have to assemble the rafts when we arrive arrive to town."
"Did you send word to prepare a feast as well? Our supplies are running low again." complained Neera.
"Naturely. And I have even better news. The Empire engineers reported that they have finished the inn. We'll have food, drinks and rooms waiting for us." said Edwin with a smile.

The orcs charged past the officer down the dune's face towards the sandlings below, silent bar harsh breaths sucked into their aching lungs.

But the silence was broken, by a scream, as the first lion broke cover to take the point orc down in a flurry of sand and fangs.

Another cat leapt, and another orc screamed as talons raked.

And another, and another.

Then the sandlings, alerted by the noise, threw off their languor and turned to roll into the fray.

There was big celebration last month as orcs were happy about big fight that not only left scores of combatants dead, but also ended with their victory.
However, I had a different worries. The battle had taken place in west, and that meant that we had enemies in both sides. Easy for orcs, but if I wanted faction to survive and my luxury position to remain I needed to do something. But what? It would be hard to find others that would agree to ally with those orcs, even if they would agree to that.

Though still without leadership, the remains of the Gamesters of Trisaklion have been sighted moving north toward the desert territories.  The gnolls of the tundra to the south express pleasure at seeing their backsides leaving their regions.  Rumors are circulating that the Gamesters plan to hold a conclave within the next few months to reconstitute their leadership which was recently killed in a foolhardy attempt to oust enemy spies from a town they did not have complete control over.  The town's City Guard took exception and executed summary justice.  It appears the the survivors of the ill-fated action were able to retain enough resources to avoid additional losses.  Our reporters will continue to monitor the situation and report developments as they occur.
