Barik blew his horn and the more than three hundred souls rushed out from the alleys and tents in the goblin city of Smyrnoeros and jumped on the guards. Edwin, Neera, Flamebeard and Slain stood shoulder to shoulder on the main square of the city waiting for the approaching guards. Edwin's baker's dozen elite bodyguards stood around them with drawn swords ready to engage the enemy while six goblin crossbowmen stood on the roof of the inn behind them crossbow at the ready.
"This is the difference between proper city guards and town guards." said Edwin pointing at an approaching phalanx of guardsmen who formed a defensive line and were slaughtering the ill equipped and badly trained goblins gnolls and humans that attacked them.
"Stingers! Fire! Bloody thirteen, stand your ground! Let them come to us!" shouted Barik and six bolts flew at the enemy killing two guards.
"Fireballs! Now!" roared Barik and Edwin and the other three let loose of their deadly fire magic killing roughly half of the guards but the rest were still coming.
"Bloody thirteen! Defensive line!" roared Barik and the thirteen bodyguards of Edwin formed a single line in front of the mages and engaged the enemy. Their weapons and skills matched those of the city guards and they managed to kill six of them without casualties thanks to the rest of Edwin's forces catching up from behind and engaging the remaining city guards from all sides. The morale of the remaining city guards broke and they tried to break out and flee but they were surrounded and outnumbered and were butchered with ease.
"That went well." said Edwin then he turned to Barik and shook his hand: "Welcome to the team."

Azrod jungle is unique in its beauty and pristine nature. These forests are home to many species of unusual animals and plants.  Crocodiles, lions, kongs, anacondas, giant lizards - that's what a zoo under a tropical sky. Outlandish rodents, rare birds, insidious poisonous snakes also live in the jungle, and there are many types of fish in the rivers. And how many amazing insects, especially butterflies and beetles, are in these most jungles of the Atlantis!

Reports continue to come in from the Perikitos Desert that the Gamesters of Trisaklion are active in the area.  It seems that they have not learned anything from their catastrophic exit from the tundra to the south, as they continue their strong-arm tactics aggressively taking bets on all types if inanities.  With the populace of the area as diverse as it is, it is unlikely that they will band together to force the Gamesters out, so they may be in the desert for quite some time.  Our investigations have revealed several training camps where the Gamesters are teaching their heavy handed techniques to the baser elements of the local communities.  Though they still lack direct leadership, the various factions of the organization appear to be unexpectedly cooperating well.  As the faction expends, it remains to be seen whether this trend toward a committee leadership style will continue.  The odds-makers still favor the eventual calling of a Rolling to select new leaders but only by a slim margin.  We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops.
