All actions have consequences. Some come immediately. Some through a time, making the revenge sweeter.

There are still city guards in the world, but for how much longer?

Things go in general well, but some interesting battles are ahead, where the outcome isn't as clear, as I would like to see.
Not so long to wait anymore.

It was inscribed in the ancient manuscript that kraken might have magic items in loot. What caught my attention is "magic items". What the Mighty Random wanted to show me - "it might or might not, haha!"
This phrase was lined in coins of silver, the only loot in the derelict ship. The amount of coins is not even enough for maintenance of the troops.
The Chosen Few (17)
Kingdom of Charles attacked and killed our peaceful naked analphabet, but hardworking peasants on small island. We have many questions, but main two are: Why and how far is Metpool?

"...and i am proud of laying the foundation stone for our company new headquarters" Sir Carter solemnly    announced.
The crowd clapped.

He hated it. In this part of the world, stone was a scarce ressource so he had to build a stockade.
He always dreamed of a citadel, high as the clouds and mighty as a mountain.

Now he had some rustic log cabins borderd by sharpend woodsticks.

He put on his brightest smile, raised his glass, cheered to crowd and took a good sip.
He struggled to keep a straight face.
"The centaurs may not make a good cup of tea, but -oh boy- the distill an quite unexpected rich grain brew" he thought, taking another sip. 

Lost Sea Trading Company (27)
The orc unit entered the harbor without being notice. They joined the other units who were being formed during last months.
A group of lousy gnolls, the orcish leader thought. But that will do.
As soon as the fleet arrived, the units formed ranks and attacked the city guards.
They hold the line while the fireballs performed their work.
The capital city of the Stim islands was ours.

The gray haired old man looks pretty bad
He left the tavern with a bottle of rum
Near the young officers he found himself
And one of them said, " Well, here you are!

Brave campaigns are now a thing of the past,
But the years had not changed his formidable temper.
"There's a reward waiting for you guys for my capture!
Agree, the dead don't need it anymore!"

"You are very old, but you hold yourself well,
But you're wrong it's not about the reward!
My father was the captain of a fine frigate
He died at your dirty hands, at the hands of a pirate!"

Your father is a different story,
He jumped into the shark's mouth running away
Before that he had suffered torment -
I cut off his head and arm in battle!

The officer's veins swelled with anger,
He plunged the dagger into the filibuster's neck.
The old man dropped the bottle and fell to the sand
And from the wound, instead of blood, strong rum poured out...

There is no place in the ocean where we have not visited
And I'll tell you now, no fooling around! No fooling around!
You, by God, brave men, have just attacked the wrong one!
Sheep don't hunt wolves! At the wolves!

Miserable Maniacs (40)
We have become a nation of outposts. Bleak, featureless, resource poor, and sparsely populated... outposts. Some, many months away from the homeland, with no hope of rescue, should misfortune befall them. Though, they, as they occupy unwanted lands, may be the last of us.

The Greyfishs gave themselves the answer to what the goal of their existence should be. They wanted to become godly people and honour the Creator of the world. And... to become people that could defend themselves and their allies.

The ambassador had emptied the treasury and sent out agents to recruit the finest they could find. He gazed out, and thought the new army looked oddly proportioned.
"Is this what we could get?" he enquired.
"Yes Sir, our neighbours are all gnomes with the occasional high elf. We have a severe shortage of orcs and gnolls. The budget wouldn't stretch to many centaurs."
The ambassador gestured at their equipment. "Is this all?"
"Yes Sir, these lands are notoriously metal poor."
 The ambassador sighed - this would have to do.
Children of the Four Winds (44)

Translation:
 
Guard of the Silmarils 
 
Hour has come, 
O guard of Silmarils, 
Onto road fiery-red 
On a pale horse, 
Whose name is Death - 
To fly far, 
To the West of the Sky, 
From dear Arda.
Your empty sheath 
And broken sword 
Will sleep in the waters, 
That will cover the dale. 
Like a golden gift, 
Your broken body 
Are you giving to lands 
That you were protecting.
Is made by friend 
Unmakable deed, 
For foes are dead, 
But Marring is alive. 
Weep, Beleriand, 
For the hero is dead, 
And two new stars 
Will not shine for Eldar.
