The young man with the slicked-back hair looked up from his espresso as Grugluf dismounted.

"The Mystic Nine's undead have routed the Elven Kingdom and taken Drelys.  Thane's Ring's undead have taken Ketterhill from WindMasters."

The young man set the cup back on its saucer with a gentle clink of bone china.

"Any word from the necromantic factions?" he asked.

"No word, mi capo," replied the consigiliere.

The young man stood, and discreetly tugged his cuffs into place.  "It's not war yet."  He picked up the heavy blackened walking stick next to his chair, and then turned back to face Grugluf fully.  "But tell your boys to be ready to go to the mattresses."

The pillaged wastelands have slowed orc advance. The burned down houses in desert now was complemented with decaying undead bones as one by one those automated skeletons broke down. 
However, just recently orcs have reached Peacekeeper lands that still have life left in them and it appears that only Harlequins burned all down.
Now it is good place to wait for resupply since we expect Blandwood to be heavily fortified. Maybe even castle has been built there. It would be great to have another castle for me - such an unexpected fate for broke trader and orc captive.

For such a small village, Ogdur seems to be attracting quite a lot of traffic.  Our reporters have spotted scouts and other units from several different factions in the area, and it appears that the Gamesters of Trisaklion are getting a little edgy with the situation.  The seem to think that other factions are trying to horn in on their business and some within the Gamesters faction advocate going on the offensive, though the majority of the faction, remembering past disasters, counsel caution.  This situation has potential of turning volatile as tensions increase.
