Richard opened his eyes. The wooden ceiling of the room, unevenly covered in white paint, friendly reflected the daylight.
Headache. Richard recalled how he was face to face with the Lich, and three of his four companions did not arrive in time for the battle. Was he really dreaming? He recalled how courageously, holding a row, the goblins kept blow from a horde of skeletons, how some unprecedented gloomy witchcraft mowed their ranks. He remembered how, one by one, the skeletons and undeads fell, chopped to the dust, and remembered the blow of huge undead monster, received in the area of ​​the liver, from which it darkened in his eyes. He remembered how the Lich had retreated, but they also had to urgently clean up, taking the wounded away. He remembered the joy of victory and the bitterness of the loss of comrades who were practically raised before their eyes by their new lord, lord of the Death, making impossible pursuing the Lich. It was a terrible dream.
Richard lowered his legs to the floor and tried to get up. The right side treacherously hurts.

From the diary of Dark Schneider:

Note to self: Never leave your diary out in the open while practicing weather lore. This month's entries have been ruined by a torrential rain. I need to get myself a fire and waterproof diary. Perhaps I could create one out of thin mithril sheets? I heard that Skalpers made his from human skin and calls it the Necronomicon but that's just a rumor. I know for a fact that he procured some furs and floater hides for the purpose. 
Silver Eclipse (15)
Been reading a book about wars in the sea. It is said that gnomes are good for that because of their weight. You can fit more of them in a ship. Would be nice if they were eating less also. Where do they put all that extra energy? Hating tall races?

"We found an island with two factions one city and no ladders or wood? Leave them to themselves or offer t hem help."

"Sire, foreigners arrived to our city" reported old soldier.
"Have you arrested them?" Admiral Lionel asked.
"Yes, they claim they are not spies and they came peacefully" replied the old soldier.
"Well, we cannot be sure, we were not contacted by Moon knights, no idea about their intentions" Admiral Lionel replied.
Minutes passed and the older soldier was still waiting knowing the old Admiral will still reply.
"Kill them all, God will know His own" Admiral Lionel said after while. "And send a message to Moon Knights saying that we deeply regret this accident."

Sir Carter read the report.

He sighed. "Had to send explorers to find even the most trivial ressources" he thought.

He issued more orders to build ships.

(Stories from ancient Darealone family book - Tales from Torsee Darealone - XVII)
Torsee, was a little nervous with the wedding. Maybe he was being to hasty.
After looking for a good bride among the human wealthy families (thank god he was in a human village, considering that the neighbor lands consisted of orcish and high dwarves communities..) he had chosen a young brown eyed brunette human lady from one of the merchants families.
Her family was very reputable and with strong ties and contacts with other cities nearby, something he was looking for, and he got the parents consent to marry her.
Torsee, only had some little conversations with her. The costumes were quite conservative there and he needed to follow them.

He had not great expectations about her bride, more of a political coin. Her beauty was above average, but he had seen much better candidates. To bad those candidates didn't came from good powerful families. But she seemed sharp minded.
Adira was her name.

Time to prepare for a hunt, we were attacked my an Evil Mage, and need to revenge our brothers.

Dark, gloomy corridor,
I'm tiptoeing like a thief,
I make my way, barely breathing,
So as not to frighten you off
Those who have been sleeping for a long time,
Those who care,
Whose room am I sneaking into
I'd like to take a look,
To see...Like insomnia at night
Changes, unsociable, your appearance,
Whose slave are you?
Why do you want to hunt people?
Cross on my chest,
Look at him,
What is he capable of in you
Abruptly change?
I read a lot of books,
I've seen a lot of tricks,
Your secret from me
Don't try to hide it!
I saw it!
Like insomnia at night
Changes, unsociable, your appearance,
Whose slave are you?
Why do you want to hunt people?
I'm sorry you didn't
She couldn't believe me,
That your new friend
Not like everyone else!
You were alone with him,
Without knowing anything about it.
That he is dangerous to everyone,
You don't care!
And you got it!
To a real wizard,
He's ruined more than one of your kind!
Like a doll and in the hour of night
Now he can control you!
Everything is happening as if in a terrible dream.
And it's dangerous for me to be here!

---Hegemony of Cone: Early years---
-----Chapter 10-----
The Charles wondered in mountains among pine trees as he used to do when he was confused about future. This time the confusion stemmed from the current diplomatic efforts. The answers from other factions were never of straight out support. He had imagined that when heard about the word of Holy Cone, most others would immediately come to his aid, but it seemed that each faction pursued their own goals which may not be in opposition to the Holy Cone, but focused on some other ends. Whay he should do, king thought, and looked up in pines. After a moment, a pine cone fell from the tree on the forest path in front of the king. Aha, that's a sign, merrily decided king, the Holy Pine shows me that we should take direct path and shall not wander around. We shall deal with direct opponents first, and continuously work with engaging the others, while always remembering the primacy of our main mission.

This message was spread through the kingdom and shipbuilders switched from building scoutships to warships.

The Greyfish people are thriving. More and more regions were settled. The local people began to organize themselves better and establish friendly relations with their neighbours. And so Björn spoke to the council: "We should look for allies. For together we can defy the dangers of the world. Send out messengers." The council decided to implement Bjorn's idea and sent out messengers in all directions.

Hello Goblins my old friends, we've come to talk to you again.  Because a vision softly creeping tells me a bounty I could be reaping in. And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains. It's the sound of quest rewards.

It's hard to be a scout. Always on the go. In foreign territories, you risk your life altogether. And they pay you as well as everyone.

The Phrygian countryside was rugged; beautiful yet rugged.  "Make straight the path" the foreman shouted as they ventured further.  The road behind them stretched back beyond the horizon.

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death

“Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns!” he said.
Into the valley of Death

Grain was in short supply, and the only livestock were some scrawny things that were more bone and skin than actual meat.  His people needed to be fed, and things weren’t looking good.  Then he had an inspiration!  Fish!  One thing that was in abundance nearby was fish!  The waters surrounding his island were teeming with them!  Why hadn’t he thought about this sooner?  He immediately ordered his quartermaster to hire and equip some fisherman.  He started to leave, then came back and ordered the quartermaster to hire and equip more warriors as well.  He wanted to increase the number of patrols and that required more men, after all.  Akhorahil then returned to his team of mages and their magical studies.
