Evil must be driven from the forests.  The Sidhe will shoulder this burden with sadness, but an understanding of necessity.

The general cowered beneath the table. "What's that huge squawking noise?" he asked.
"Sir, you know how our allies killed a roc, and our soldiers killed one in the desert? It seems we have a breeding pair in our mountain territories."

Finally some good news, quest has appeared on our doorstep. Can we get that mysterious artifact everyone is talking about, that's the question?
Skalperians (22)
The men gathered in the city. Shoulder bags - and on the road. In a dense forest, a robber crawls out from under a bridge and orders: "Well, take off your things and put them in a pile." The men silently obeyed. The robber took the prey and retired to the forest. Travelers are silent. Finally one of them said: "That's what the units means." He took away things, but was afraid to beat.

OOps, that didn't go too well. better regroup!

Here we stand and here shall we die, unbroken and unbowed, though the very hand of death itself come for us, we will spit our defiance to the end!
Ordo Hereticus (30)
They came from the North, hailing us
- We want all your cities, ups, I mean we want to know about all your cities. We bring freedom! Freedom and democracy! Freedom, democracy and bricks!
- Bricks?
- Yes, freedom through roadbuilding.
- Oh, I see. But how? Your quarries are a year away.
- No no, we don't use that kind of old-fashioned technology in here. These bricks are made from swamp moss. Very soft and fluffy. Comfy too. A pleasure to travel through.
- That's very innovative. And environmentally friendly. When do we start?
- No no, first we need your city to accomodate our moss caretakers. Don't worry, our men are already there. 
- Great, but what about those crossbows?
- Don't worry friends, swamps are a dangerous place, we have to protect our production sites. But remember, you are the beneficiares here. Freedom through roadbuilding.

'Minister, were there any problems during the celebrations at New Year and New Years Eve?'
'No, master.   Some drunk too much.  Some fights.  Nothing serious.'
'Good to hear.  So production is on track?  Iron, 100 swords, 100 plate armour, 100 shields ready?  The road is finished?'
'Uhm ... not yet ... we are working on it.'
'Maybe you should make the people work longer and harder!?'
'Master, do you want them to go on strike?'
'No, that would throttle down production even further.  Instead ... a free round of brandy for all the hard working people!'
'Yes, master, a very wise decision.  It's a pleasure serving you.'

Need to scale the right things first, not the wrong things.

The high elf horsetrainers we were training in the plains have just reported that they spotted winged horses flying high above the plains. This is completely unexpected. Winged horses were not supposed to live on plains, they were supposed to live on tundras. 

Now everybody will be flying about causing all kinds of aerial trouble.

Time to enact a speeding regulation. If one of your units is flying above a regional Disasters Inc. police officer, expect to get a speeding fine.

This turn's still got 7+ hours left!  4 turns/week, I say!
The Darkest Night (48)
Using the magic of her new boots Adrica levitated to the second story balcony of the magetower and entered the room she shared with Uthark.
"What's up?" uthark asked as she hugged him from behind radiating excitement.
"Another dragon is spotted to the north. That cave is spitting one out every month it seems." Adrica replied then looking at Uthark's table full of scrolls she aked: "What are you doing?"
"I'm trying to figure out where we should be heading after we get bored sitting in this city." the half-orc replied.
"And?" Adrica asked curiously.
"Well, as I see it all of the settlements in our vicinity will be taken in a few months so we either declare war on someone or we'll go hunting some more dragons. Perhaps a few demons as well."
"Good. When are we leaving?" Adrica asked.
"Bored already? I recon half a year. Unless we loot something good sooner."
"Define good."
"Something that would help us take out a dragon. A couple of staves of lightning would be nice."
"Never seen one before."
"Because they are rare. The ancient one, T'azer made them and spread them on many worlds but I doubt he ever visited this one."
"OK. So what else?"
"I wouls really like to get our hands on a few cloaks. Some amulets of true seeing or an aegis would be nice as well."
"Now we're talking. I prefer a drow-made admantium mail over cloaks but I want an aegis for sure. So let's go." Adrica said excitedly.
"Where to?" Uthark asked.
"To the northern cave. That dragon to the north is not killing itself."

Here we are again!
Our scout found out that there are pirates in Undersea. This particular scout will not find anything anymore. Shame. A fine good looking  lizardman he was. Good meat too.

Some say the land is full. Then it is time to empy the land.
No Hope Nation (61)
Yep... even mithril swords lose their shine when not used.

Still the mage school has room for 10 newcomers - gate in via gate 666 - make sure you have plenty of coins in your purse, the cost of entertainment (and leaders) has skyrocketed in Bactgill.
Naughty Princesses (62)
Ninrolf looked around his new quarters. They were an infinite advancement from his earlier lodgings. Hard to believe but his friend had invited him to stay in the magical building that had caught his eye last year. He even got his own room and his immediate family likewise. Even if there still were no clothes shops this new world certainly had style.
Freemen of Lund (79)
These dangerous animals lurk beneath the surface of the water in a world vastly different than ours, and must be deadly to survive.

A new world... which way ?
After a talk with some peasants, I learnt a big city was in the south.
Well, why not, may be more information to get there.

Machinae Supremacy -  My Dragons Will Decimate

Burn
In a universe of nothing, like the sun
I am one of an infinite number
All too lost, too undone

I will forge my own world, my own law
And if broken, my dragons will decimate
Without a single word ever spoken

Firelight for as far as heaven is wide
Summon the dragon war
Twilight of the ones, the Children of God
Burning, falling

Why — in spite of great abundance
Do we suffer? Die?
The wise know not to off the light at night
So to watch the lazy waste their lives

I will forge my own world, my own law
And if broken, my dragons will decimate
Without a single word ever spoken

Firelight for as far as heaven is wide
Summon the dragon war
Twilight of the ones, the Children of God
Burning, falling

We have allowed you to stake your claim
But you’ll do nothing else, no more
This world is not, never was your domain
And you have lost this war

Firelight for as far as heaven is wide
Summon the dragon war
Twilight of the ones, the Children of God
Burning, falling

Firelight for as far as heaven is wide
Summon the dragon war
Twilight of the ones, the Children of God
Burning, falling

Burning, falling
