"we are going to be renamed."
"which way?"
"Now we are The Kingdom of the Four Shores.”
"But why the kingdom?"
"Because we have enough possessions not to be a duchy, barony, or county, of course."
"And why the four shores?"
"Because that's our land."
"Sir, I would say that we have three to seven shores, depending on how to count."
"but only Four Shores truly belong to our Kingdom."

"Sir, the HR are asking whether wearing clown outfits is really the, as they said 'attire appropriate for a professional responsible for maintaining the diversity, quality and ...'"
"They don't get it, do they? The role if the HR is either to entertain or to terrify the staff. Given that all of our other staff were given sharp tools, you can ask them whether they really want to try the 'terrify' bit."
"I see sir. I'm sure they will make the wise decision."
"See that they do. And those that still don't like the outfits, well, we need some practice dummies, so feel free to suggest that as another possibility to them."

From the diary of Dark Schneider:

2nd of December Year 2

Finally the fleet is ready to sail. Zodd took charge of the 4 corsairs and named them The Wolfpack.
It's good to be out of the flowery tower. The girls really went owerboard with the decoration.

9th of December Year 2

We set sail for Incaghaven. These ships are really fast especially when we send the winds directly at the sails. The girls love the speed and don't miss the tower at all. They are happy. I am happy. Our cabin is big and comfortable but lacks soundproofing. The crew already calls our corsair the Siren. Zodd named his the Fang while Eric calls his ship Chaser. The crew of the last one calls her the Shadow as she is following the other three and has no captain yet. That will be Logan's ship when we reach Cendale in two months.

13th of December Year 2

We had a live fire excercise shooting at empty barrels in the water. First our goblin crossbowmen showed their skills then the girls let some fireballs fly. We haven't lost our touch. In fact we can throw fireballs with bigger force now at greater distances. They create huge steamy explosions when they touch the water. The crew of Shadow caught up with us to thank us for the cooked fish and calamari they managed to gather with a net in our wake. Zodd and Talindra came over and we had a nice dinner. We invited Eric as well but he's busy with his maps and planning the assault on Incaghaven. That guy doesn't know how to have fun.

21st of December Year 2

We've arrived to Incaghaven. The town is a disappointment after Fulford. Gyperboreya (30) men took everything that was not bolted down when they fled the area. Some men of Scoiatael and Chaos Empire set up camp outside town. We'll have to wipe them out before we can secure the place. Well, we can always use some more target practice I guess.

31st of December Year 2

Another year has gone by. It was quite a boring year compared to the first one but we spent most of it in Fulford. I'm hoping the next one will be more eventful. Gotta finish this entry fast. It's time to celebrate with the girls.
Silver Eclipse (15)
So, great Nyrdmogi city has felled in hands of our brave orcs.
Let's celebrate!
But there is still so much to do. If you stop, you fell behind. Unfortunately, sometimes you fell behind even if you don't stop, but just move too slow.
Gray Ones (16)
Our explorer observed fiery fleet capturing Incagaven. Seems that it is not the first time that town experiences fire. And then the explorer was also killed, probably the mages were angry for his observation skills.
Chaos Empire (19)
New alliances will be forged among the peoples.
Tribes of Bructeri (20)
Admiral Lionel woke up and looked around. He has seen horses everywhere, horses in stable, horses in the castle, horses in the armory, in the kitchen, in the granary ... so many horses everywhere. And even worse - his soldiers stared to call hom Khaleesi.  I have to find out what it means, he thought, I do not what it means but I feel insulted by it ... 
Scoiatael (25)
Sildoral had some troubles coping with the new way his life had taken after joining his old liege. 
It wasn´t what he had first expected: It wasn´t the constant proximity to undead folk. It wasn´t even the reminder that a lot of things had changed in the Empire he once knew so well.
It was traveling by sea. That didn´t suit his stomach. Why had he agreed to accompany his liege on this cruise? There had to have been a reason, but he couldn´t remember while loosing his breakfast overboard.
Elves of Lund (26)
Reports indicating that his allies were pressured came on the desk of Sir Carter.

He looked at his troop reports and began to order more troops.

"The dogs of war will soon be unleashed" he thought.
Lost Sea Trading Company (27)
There is no wedding without a gift. And that gift is a ship.

And that ship has only one purpose.

The Filras (3)
glittering prizes
Gyperboreya (30)
Kingdom of Charles had established several diplomatic initiatives and things started looking up again. Several factions had listened to the word of Holy Cone and were looking supportive. From some there was deep silence. 
Kingdom of Charles (35)
I met an old man. He looked as if he had come straight from fairy tales. Long snow-white beard, gray hoodie, wooden staff. We talked with him for a long time, and he said that he belonged to the ancient order of the Magi. Incredibly, there is magic in this world. We talked with him all night, and in the morning we parted as friends. Hope to see you soon. I have so much to ask him about ...

The Hunt Begins (4)
Based on the times thous wild men are again in our territory , but Scouts report no contact. We'll wait, we might get lucky and they come to us..
Miserable Maniacs (40)
Well, we got our ships off the rocks, and they can now proceed to carry out the tasks assigned. It may be, given the tasks assigned, that the crews will remember the period they spent grounded, as the best of times.
Northern Viking (42)
Since there have been goblins in the desert of Thesipais, the tower 'Eastwatch by the Sea' stands there, today it houses an old goblin and some servants. What they do in the tower and to whom they report is not known. But the goblin mothers warn their daughters to get close to the old man and his servants. 
Greyfish (43)
Behold in Boncast! The phantasmal burlesque! More illusions than you've seen crammed in one city before, all live and for your entertainment.
Children of the Four Winds (44)
100 gnomes against one Dragon. How will that turn out? We will know very soon!
Filcist (46)
Evil Magicians are nasty folk. My dear imperial negotiator tried to bribe one and immediately the heavens opened up killing him with a mighty lightning strike. They must have some secret deal with Thor, because I wonder how they do that underground without a sky.
Anuii (47)
From a wonderful and peaceful plain we came. Through pain we have grown. 

Now we make landfall. 
Little House in Anger (49)
Ai! laurië lantar lassi súrinen,
Ah! like gold fall the leaves in the wind,

Yéni ve lintë yuldar avánier
The long years have passed like swift draughts

Andúnë pella, Vardo tellumar

Who now shall refill the cup for me?

An sí Tintallë Varda Oiolossëo
For now the Kindler, Varda, the Queen of the stars,

ve fanyar máryat Elentári ortanë
from Mount Everwhite has uplifted her hands like clouds

ar ilyë tier undulávë lumbulë
and all paths are drowned deep in shadow;

ar sindanóriello caita mornië 
and out of a grey country darkness lies

i falmalinnar imbë met,
on the foaming waves between us,

ar hísië untúpa Calaciryo míri oialë.
and mist covers the jewels of Calacirya for ever.

Sí vanwa ná, Rómello vanwa, Valimar!
Now lost, lost to those of the East is Valimar!

Namárië! Nai hiruvalyë Valimar!
Farewell! Maybe thou shalt find Valimar!

Nai elyë hiruva! Namárië!
Maybe even thou shalt find it! Farewell!

The Phrygians (83)
A refugee flees south,
His men in tatters,
Failed attack on the shores,
Troops through occupied lands,
Know that the cities are hands off.
Luxadom (86)
Akhorahil watched the goblin recruits as they were drilled and instructed in the finer arts of combat by one of his leaders.  He turned to his Quartermaster and said “Have another goblin recruited and outfitted immediately”  The Quartermaster balked and replied that the treasury was low, and would need a month or two to recover from the last expenditure, but that he would squeeze what he could out of it and secure enough funds to raise another warband in one month…
Riders of the Storm (89)
Sea was silent very long. Now Grandpa of all Krakens was located in the middle of fishing operations. So bad, Captain Murray is too far. Captain Barracuda is too far. We must prepare for loses. FS Striker is sailing home.
