Wars are won not by those who have a better strategy, but those who make fewer mistakes.
The gods should slow down time.
The Six Shores (11)
"S.. Sweeper"
"Right you are lad"
"We have managed to get out almost all the treasure we were hoping for."
"Good. But even better, I have managed to get away some highly trained men. It was lucky I found all those gliders in the Evil Mage's tower's broom cupboard. But I still feel sorry for the men we had to leave behind."
"They volunteered."

So our troops, weakened by long journey and too heavily loaded with loot from previous battles with monsters, were able to win the fight they came for.
Luckily, there are more monsters respawning, according to scout reports, so relaxing won't be long. Month or two for regrouping, some training and they will be marching out again into swamps of Jyrpatziac.
Gray Ones (16)
"My these centaurs on turtle back are fun."

"We only have one of them sir"

"It still makes me laugh. Even more than the Sea Elves who are high."
King of the Penguins (18)
The stones are so heavy, need to build some more galleons for the transport ...
Scoiatael (25)
The town of Nornglen was thriving. 
Everwhere new buildings could be seen, the economy was bustiling and tax revenue where on an all time high.

Sir Carter was pleased. His change of management bear fruits.

Lost Sea Trading Company (27)
(Stories from ancient Darealone family book - Tales from Torsee Darealone - XXII)
The church had arrived to the town. They soon gathered enough donations to raise a temple were the followers could gather and look for guidance.
The minister was quite happy. As Adira had promised there were many citizens interested in the church sacred vows.
Soon, he hoped, the first group of men and women, would take the next step.
This is Paradise (29)
Where to go? What to do? Empires everywhere.
The Filras (3)
Welcome, friends, to my tavern,
I rent rooms for the night, you are here as in Paradise.
And if you have money ringing in your pockets -
I'll be happy to serve you a drink,
I learn something from them.

The beautiful wife is ready to serve everyone,
And feed and water and put to sleep.
I swear to God, she's my Saint,
Not like me. I will cast a sly glance after you,
Everyone is happy to see my wife here.

If the guest values his skin,
He won't touch what belongs to me.
A nice wife can't hide from prying eyes,
I'm ashamed of you. Yes well now don't wash it
B smear all over with soot!

A tavern in the middle of the woods
Waiting for people honest.
Guest my dear,
Don't mess with me!

What kind of people do we have now,
And I'm surprised every time.
I took them in for the night and gave them food,
But you didn't promise them a wife!

Finger on the trigger
Smoke from the barrel,
You're a fellow thief!
The conversation is over.
Gyperboreya (30)
The article of last month Times shocked the king. Apparently the heretic faction of Skalperians threatened to attack their homeland. However, it seemed that potential attack could still be few months away and therefore king ordered to increase production of swords as much as possible and felt satisfied with his decision.

Meanwhile, in barracks there was quite confusion about changing focus monthly - just month ago men were ordered to start building ships and now different focus - there was just not enough men and silver to reach different goals. Something will have to give. Or maybe some hidden reserves can be found. Maybe dragon has some useful loot?
Kingdom of Charles (35)
so where are these mythic turtles anyways?
ClanJaguar (38)
Not this time
Beastmasters (39)
These undead sure know how to put up a fight... and wiped out our attacking force.  Better preparation is needed, including skilling up on tacticians and having a mobile attacking force.
The Hunt Begins (4)
One of our distant outposts has been taken out. Revenge? It's so far away, and what with the wear and tear on the ships, would it be worth it? We think, that at this time, 'revenge, is a dish best served later'.
Northern Viking (42)
And Björn and the Crew started to sing:

As the soldiers gathered around the stockade of Boncast, they hoped that their opponents would be lacking in proper siege equipment.
 One gnome turned to a centaur and said "I don't like it sarge - it's quiet....too quiet"
Children of the Four Winds (44)
This... this seemed better. The orders were tamed and the money was, if not exactly rolling in, at least tumbling gently in this direction.  The Primarch grinned to himself. There were admittedly some distribution issues, but the localised nature of the money did have an upside.  The assistant was just finishing drawing him a bath, the coins tumbling out of his bucket with a clatter. 

It wasn't comfortable, but that wasn't the point. The point was to show off the large amount of money. The very large amount of money. The slightly alarmingly large amount of money... no really there shouldn't be this much.  The Primarch went ashen faced and bolted to the window just in time to see the army march away, empty-pursed. 

The assistant was having a good day. Duties were light, and the Primarch was distracted, without a paperweight in sight. Then his leader burst into the room, towel flapping, and seized him by the collar. "GET ME A VERY FAST HORSE" he screamed. 
The Worshipful Order of Guildsmen (45)
Another debt has been settled, and another resettlement of the lands is underway. A few hundred more grievances sent to a better place. At this point, this world might have some merit after all. We are open for discussion.

We feel another change of state coming on.
Little House in Anger (49)
I laiss e-mallorn ernediaid.

Gâr chinnen. Ir dannatha?

The leaves of the mallorn are numberless
One tiny leaf, one fading leaf
Holds my eyes. When will it fall?
Istari (55)
So the new neighbors seem aggressive to some other neighbors, while we are not involved, its fine by me. Not seeking for any conflicts.
Semigallians (6)
No money! Army consumes all money...
Royal Pinguins (69)
Salty spray of the sea. Our first hike.
Moon Knights (7)
A brief insurgence of old loyalists was quickly and righteously suppressed.  We will not return to old unenlightened ways.
The Phrygians (83)
Rave, Rave, Rave with the dying of the light,
The dusk brings relief from scorching heat,
A snake with many heads now but one,
Isolated upon a rock, alone.
Luxadom (86)
Akhorahil oversaw the preparations for his long-planned conquest.  Most his troops were in place, though some were still out collecting food for his armies.  “Soon, he told his tactician and minor wizards.  Soon we will attack.”  “He turned to his quartermaster and spoke to him, “Make sure the goblins are well fed before the battle.  I don’t want them wandering off in the middle of the fight.  But not TOO well fed, because then they will sleep through the entire fight!”
Riders of the Storm (89)
Starting to wonder how far this is going.
All unfriendly frogs will be removed from Fishmonger's domain.

six shores is becoming extinct like dinosaur
The third state has started. Mellow out, mellow out.
The everlasting spirit of Ovuna (80) is at peace now that Sword & Shield Forever (32) has been destroyed. Let this be a lesson for all bullies everywhere.
Eternal Empire will fall to pieces, necromancy won't save them, as their bones will burned and there will be just nothing left, years will pass and no one will remember that they even lived in this world for such a short period of time.
The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives!
