A lonely mountain
Silent rejection in snow

In June of the second year, Muha managed to intercept the first Sphinx. The operation was not easy, the beaters had to maneuver throughout the desert, and with them the army, for which it was very important, among other things, not to depart far from the road being built.
The battle took place in the heart of the desert. The tactical advantage was on the side of the Sphinx, because Richard was somewhere in the south, overseas (this, and also rumours about some important battle with the undead that happened in May, was all that Muha had known). 
It makes no sense to hide, even half a hundred swords given to goblins were more of a psychological help than a hope of victory. The victory had to be brought by archers, not goblins of the first row.
In the first round, 23 goblins were defeated immediately, but they managed to drive the Sphinx into a small ravine, and then hit it with arrows.
Now it was necessary to make a march through Flabury to another desert for another Sphinx, and at the same time gaining reinforcements somehow.

---Hegemony of Cone: Change of course---
-----Chapter 11-----

The ships sailed south for the second month. Orcs clad in mithril harshly looked at horizon. Somehwere there was the enemy - a faction had attacked the kingdom and killed several missionaries. Revenge was in order. 

Meanwhile, in Metpool the communication dicordly pigeons flew there and back with messages. King received and delivered threats, requests and other diplomatic niceties. Eventually it was stated that the hostile enemy has a backing of several faction alliance and the kingdom was threatened with overwhelming force.

The decisions facing the king were unforgiving - continue the assault and while lots of heretics would be purged, the war seemed hopeless. But the spreading of the word of Holy Cone in south had failed, both by persuasion and by force. Was there another option, another course?! 

Time was short but Cone provided the revelation to king: there was probably another way. Maybe the word could be spread by merchants. Where armed force proved insufficient, maybe trading schemes could pivot others in the course of the Holy Cone. The high priests received new orders from king - fleet should be turned back and new opportunities pursued.

We have now gotten to know the deserts, the tundras and the mountains. Beauty can be found in other places than our plains island, that is good to know.

But then again it could just be because all those places are finally lacking their aggressive former inhabitants.

Sí na veth bâden im derel

In deep darkness buried.

Beyond all mountains steep

The Phrygians (83)
Through Dawn's real light,
An actual judgement of might,
Stay true to morality,
Seek not others' mortality,
Fourteen dead mages,
Light's own in their pages,
Upon a jungle grows a tower,
A small seat of power.
Luxadom (86)
It was payback time.  The army tactician deployed the masses of goblins, 5 warbands in all, each accompanied by a wizard, as well as several other skirmishing units.  They would all move into key positions to take out the city guard once the wizards brought fiery death down onto the guards.  It was payback time.
