The famous goblin, who controlled the defence against attacks of wild people from the jungle, at the dawn of Desert Eagles, was called Muha.
Richard singled him out among others and endowed him with power. Muha did not know actually why, but paid for it with devotion.
His exploits was extended by the capture of the settlement and the hunt for the sphinx.
For the last, he received the nickname Sphinpherd. Catching the sphinx was not an easy task, because Sphinx playfully ignored Mucha’s squad, always keeping them in a distance. It had last long enough for the nickname to stick to Muha.
That's the story about Muha Sphinpherd.

"What do you mean you want to consolidate? When you took on this job, you said multitasking was your strength. Are you now saying you can't be conducting a hostile merger, a management buyout and consolidation at the same time?"
"Err.. "
"Anyone who doesn't do a merger a month is dead in the banking world! Do you want to be dead?"
"Err, no?"
"So off you go, find yourself a target!"

From the diary of Dark Schneider:

3rd of June Year 2

Received a strange message today from Scoiatael. Can't make any sense of it. I sent a scout north months ago. Last time we heard from him the lizardman was swimming along the shoreline of of the cold plains of Chene (15,5). He was out of food and must have forced his way to the shore and probably got slain by the guards of Scoiatael. Why Admiral Lionel makes such a big thing out of it is beyond me. It was a non-event not worth mentioning.

7th of June Year 2

Leira is rounding out nicely. Elves are quite skinny but at 3 months pregnant she's hot. And cranky. Very cranky. Morning sickness is a pain. I try to give her more attention but there's Neira and Moira getting jelous. I feel a storm is coming and I don't think I can dissipate this one by casting clear skies.

11th of June Year 2

Another battle with the forces of Gyperboreya (30). I decided to leave the girls with the fleet while the troops and I marched on the 34 gnolls. It was a slaughter. Those mithril swords of ours cut through everything. I didn't even get to shoot a single fireball.  

17th of June Year 2

I decided to take the girls on a picnic today. We had a few arguments and let out some steam. They were really angry. At the lousy rafts. At the rowdy troops. At me and each other. At the whole world in general. They always acted so polite and collected in the past I never imagined they locked up so much anger and frustration inside. No casualities apart from some scorched grass a few burned down huts and frightened locals. Back to normal again.

18th of June Year 2

Now that the girls calmed down it's time to sail back to Fulford. It's a good thing we weren't in the city for our quarrel. Or aboard the fleet. Maybe I should find a way to harness their fury and frustration. It's free renewal energy. Can I power ships with it? I doubt it. A smithy then? Nope. Too much destructive power. I guess the only use we have for it right now is for war and destruction. We can experiment again later. I have a feeling that this will happen again from time to time.

22nd of June Year 2

We're back in Fulford. The rootstone for our tower has arrived as well. We'll have that magetower in a month. 

28th of June Year 2

Our very first galleon finally arrived to Fulford. Now where should we sail? There's Scoiatael's island to the north but it's too much of a hassle to sail up there for two tiny settlements. There's Incaghaven but Gyperboreya (30) already capitulated and swore fealty to out allies. The south is devoid of big settlements and it would take four months to go around our continent to reach Lyshetpol. Let's see if we can gather more intel then decide.

Silver Eclipse (15)
- Tell me, peasant, do you need an axe to cut a tree? 
- Your majesty, my father was half beaver, half centaur. I am comfortable enough with my bare teeth.
- Oh dear Random, what are you? Anyway, take this axe and cut more trees.
The Chosen Few (17)
The lonely explorer of our Empire was just enjoying the shores in ship guided by friendly Scoiatael when angry Skalperians rushed on and killed them together with sailors. They called him a pirate, the lonely unarmed explorer. Strange times, strange customs
Chaos Empire (19)
Pirates, disguising themselves as explorers, were interrogated and released from their duties. They told us that they come from rich plain island up north, interesting...
Skalperians (24)
Anybody knows how to transmute horses into stone ? Research grant money available.
Scoiatael (25)
Sildoral had made a decision. After the murder attempt of last month and the heroic way in which Elthaniels pet wolves had come to his defense. He had ordered all his inner circle to get wolf pets of their own. 
Elthaniel had pesented him with the latest clutch of pups from her wolves to start with.

The mystery of the undead empire still kept him awake most nights. A terrible suspicion had entered his musings lately. The human nobles of the Empire of Lund including most of the imperial family had always been a little envious about the near infinite lifespan of their elven subjects. Could it be that they had experimented to gain immortality themselves? Could these experiments have led to immortality by becoming undead?

Such thoughts were enough to keep anyone awake at nights.
Elves of Lund (26)
"That is enough" Sir Carter yelled

"He taxed our tools that we ship to our people"

Sir Carter took his quill and began to write orders.

"Not for much longer"
Lost Sea Trading Company (27)
(Stories from ancient Darealone family book - Tales from Torsee Darealone - XIV)
The army departed back to the village to bring it again into submission.
The guards were caught by surprise, and gave no resistance. Everyone thought that the expedition would end with everyone not returning no more.
That was not the case, but truly the army was in very bad shape. During return, some more men got lost, units, weapons and spoils were scattered.
Time to regroup.
This is Paradise (29)
Finally out in the ocean, more jungles found, will continue around. Another underworld entrance would be nice to stumble upon.
The Filras (3)
More of our men are turning againts us, we wonder if if is the beast we found in the underworld. We have to change our plans, but we will keep fighting. Let the Light shine.
Sword & Shield Forever (32)
"I've almost forgotten what a tree looks like." remarked the commander.  "This land is filled with nothing but ice and dirt as far as one can see!"
The Obsidian Order (34)
withdraw is expensive, but have to speed up studying somehow ...
ClanJaguar (38)
Can we use the stars to navigate this ocean?
Beastmasters (39)
So, that city we've found wasn't full of drow elves but humans instead.  That's probably enough for to consider sending a force there to take it - once the other cities up top have been captured.

Plus, those magicians at the site of our proposed tower now seem to be part of a quest - double points.

Oh, we're sailing from south from Pelton with the hope of finding the owner of the raft we have.  We never did get directions from Faction 52.

The Hunt Begins (4)
Our scouts messed up miserably, that wild clan of men is still not in our sight, but they cannot hide forever. Hopefully nobody else will get to them faster.
Miserable Maniacs (40)
We are told there are lands for the taking, just off the port bow. We shall see what our reception is. This is not a fishing vessel.
Northern Viking (42)
"Bjorn, we have confessed ogres," the messenger said excitedly."Stay away from them, I ahh hear that an ogre can kill dozens of men without even trying." The beasts are said to have eaten even the dead as well as the living wounded.  I wish no one this death, not even my worst enemy Björn thought. 
Greyfish (43)
Across the bay, little scaly head were popping up and down. It seemed the lizardmen scouts going one way were being met my lizardmen scouts coming the other way. In fact, the seas were full of lizardmen and the occasional longship. It seemed no-one had time for fancy ships or turtle riding.

The ambassador strode down to the beach. It was time to welcome delegates from more factions.
Children of the Four Winds (44)
We have no words, but actions remain. Settlers settle and ships sail.
Little House in Denial (49)
OK We've been stuck on this island for a year and half now... No sign of wood or stone. We could use either. Just lots and lots of fish, some cows, and an evil tower full of evil warriors. Great!
The Weird Company (52)
We have huge update on the current map, this world is very great, with a lot of islands, underworld also a lot of explored lands, overall huge amounts of monsters there. Need to start building ships soon.
Semigallians (6)
Good relations start paying off marvelously. Might there be some foul plans underneath? No matter.
Met some unexpected newcomers. Ah, I say newcomers when it really is someone who's been there the whole time, but was silent. I'm curious what will become of it.
Gnolls are starting behaving erratically. I can see they are ready to kill, with their training, equipment and whatnot. But I've yet to find a worthy battle. Suppose I could get them some horses and hope they use them the right way.
Chaotic Neutral (62)
We moved underground. Dangerous lands...
Royal Pinguins (69)
On the field the barlogs rumbled, the orcs walked to the last battle.
Moon Knights (7)
Its time to build some economy, 
tax, wood, iron, livestock.... the time of hard working is there
Anomymo (76)
Death Guard report June, Year 2

"We're under attack! Dark League troops marching forward destroying everything on their way! Master, we need..." - message drops.

Supreme Lord turned away. There is no regret in losing some servants, we can always get more from the grave. Maybe even same ones. But they dare to attack his zombies. This require consequences.
Eternal Empire (8)
Sailing, sailing, over the bounding main;
For many a stormy wind shall blow, ere Ovuna comes home again!

For many a stormy wind shall blow ere Ovuna comes home again.
Ovuna (80)
The new government has promised a substantial investment in regional infrastructure.  Signs of new projects already dot the landscape.  It is a real shot in the arm to the local economy, and their is a growing sense of optimism.
The Phrygians (83)
Illumination shields shadows.  
Shadows conceal treachery.  
Empathy lost and a run for the borders over land for those lost in cities unknown.  
A fourth joins the three.
Artistry, Cartography, Mastery and the score of scouts push ever outwards.
Luxadom (86)
A quiet month, though there were more visitors to the island.  They seemed friendly enough.  The goblin scouts were ranging further from the base encampment, and the goblin sailors set sail again on the raft with the centaurs and another team of goblins to see about getting some wood to build another raft with.  Hopefully they would not run into any trouble.  The training of his mages was coming along well, though there were some hiccups, which seemed to be the norm, not the exception!
Riders of the Storm (89)
Fishmonger Air Commando is up . Soon first  patrol will fly over the ocean. We salute to first brave Boyz.
Fishmongers (9)
I think I've explored the majority of this island. Perhaps it is time to build some ships and visit other ones? Not so much "Distancing" any more. A name change could be on the horizon
Social Distancing (91)


It is rumored that Mister Schneider has lost it. It being the count of days.
Greyfish is in the wrong island
dark league is doomed. or should we call them now dead league?
