It is possible that the scout army of the Sidhe will be defeated by the rabble horde the Lost Kingdom sends against it.  Our troops will give a good account of themselves, but they will be outnumbered by about five to one.  The state of training and arms of the Lost "Army" is so pitiful that a victory might be pulled out.  We hope our scout army survives to join the main force which is on the way.  If not, their banners will be recaptured and planted in the mound of LK dead that will soon rise to the sky.

The admiral stared admiringly at the charts.
"You say we've mapped the entire underocean? Are you sure?" he asked his minions.
"Yes sir, we've mapped the lot. Sadly, it's got very few creatures in it. So far our greatest military victory has been against pirates in a small lake." replied a midshipman.
 The admiral decided to award himself a new medal.

Undead... seams that they are not so useless in those crypts here and there. We need to check the latest rumors!
Avalon Empire (15)
After four days of travel, the small army arrived to the cave the peasants had reported.

Around the cave there was a glade of around 600 feets of diameter. No vegetation grew in it, and roof of the cave was clearly visible for those gnomes and dwarves used to darkness. Grotus himself couldn't see it, the torchlight was lost in the vastness of those spaces, but he had enough to see the entrance of the cave thanks to a spooky light coming from inside. It was dragon's breath, of course.

At his signal de dwarves advanced towards the cave while the gnomes hidden in the nearest trees prepared to shoot their crossbows. Then, suddenly, a huge red dragon emerged from the cave roaring and preparing to breath his fire. The dwarves got paralysed.

- Shoot!

A rain of arrows fell on the dragon, which could only take a couple of steps before collapsing. It gave a last warm rattle and died.

To whomever is committing petty theft in the plains of Igate, I extend an invitation to establish communication. I would happily give you a horse and upkeep for your scout if you were not sneaking around.

It has come to my attention that you earn too little in our village inn.
Lizardwoman: No, that can't be. I'm working my ass off all day. (figuratively speaking)
You will be transferred to crypt and start working there.
Lizardwoman: NO! WHY? Doing what?
You will be served as dinner for inhabitants tomorrow at noon.
Lizardwoman: WHAT?! Please no!
Sorry, no can do, times have come where Lizardwoman lives don't matter, just the profit...

Life has changed so much, and the world has deteriorated so much that when you see a pure, sincere person who wants to be around, you are looking for a catch in this.

Do not throw your forces blindly into battle. Before committing your forces, examine the situation. Review your own strength, and that of your enemy. Remember your own objectives, and try to anticipate those of your opponent. Then select those of your troops best suited to the task in hand.

If you are not understood from the position of dialogue, then you have to explain from the position of strength. Do you still hold the city to which I am entitled? Then we go to you.

Thief Guild was discovered in many major Fremen cities.
This organization keep stealing and assassinating innocent people. Many WING, LASSO and HORSES were stolen and their owners either killed or left behind with empty pockets.

Fremen tribes are investigating this Guild activities and warn newcomers to be aware and do not stay at streets after dusk.

Upper Management (484) saw across the lands and saw that they had been cleared of wild game. Kobolds, Kongs, Sphinxes, Ettins and even Dragons had been hunted down and made into wall hanging decor. A new castle even had to be built to fit all the trophies that were coming in. The lairs were all empty now, the land was quiet, the armies were bored.

Except for some undead in a jungle. VP of Research and Development (1353) was given the mission to try to turn this last wild game into entertainment and profit.

The Darkest Night (48)
Observing the guards of Yoybost from the shadows Desmond could barely contain his excitement. Less than a year ago he was just a street urchin trying to earn a coin or two pickpoketing on the streets of Shresta. Then he got recruited by the Tribe and everything changed. He received vigorous training and a few months later he was given a winged horse and a ring and he found himself flying towards the Dark League city called Yoybost. He spent two months observing the city and looking for a target. His instructions were clear: "Don't reveal your presence unless the reward warrants it." Now the reward did warrant it. A staff of fire! He needed to get it at all cost. Unlike the stupid guardsmen he had the skills to use it. It was part of his training. Not very well mind you, just a month about the basics. Well, it was time to put that training to good use. He wrote a quick report about the latest news including the fact that Dark League looted a staff of fire from a Dragon and sent it with a bat to Shresta then prepared himself for the greatest lift of his life.

What is green, and when sees something shining leaps and catches it?
You might think it is a frog, but you are wrong - it is a goblin.
Though, on the other hand it might be easy to mistake them for a large frogs...

The old mage is frozen!

Strange how there seems there are a limited amount of gates but they kinda get always on cold places..

-"Nothing happened last month. Nothing will happen next month" - said apprentice, looking in crystal ball.
-"Really? This is what spirits say?"
-"Yes, sir..."
Old mage for first time felt strange mistrust to the artefact, which was serving him well many years. His own foresight was telling absolutely opposite. A lot will happen soon.

Rumors

Where is the little Devovov? Come out, come out whewevev you awe.
Leader of Lost Kingdom should listen to this voice of wisdom!
Sidhe is stronger than Lost Kingdom. Sidhe has dragons, bigger and better armies including archers and combat troops, and Sidhe has ships to sail over to Lost Kingdom lands and destroy them once and for all. So the question is, can Lost Kingdom get good quick? Can they hire lots of men skilled in ranged combat and arm them with crossbows or longbows? Can they form a frontline of skilled combat men good enough to protect their ranged units? Do they have observers and tacticians on high enough level? Does Lost Kingdom have ships? Can mages of Lost Kingdom throw more than two-three fireballs? Do they even have a mage tower to study in? At least build galleons and sail to a safer place because YOU ARE DOOMED! Listen to this voice in your head my dear leader of Lost Kingdom! You have been too aggressive for such a weakling! RUN! RUN! Run while you still can.
  sincerely yours,
the Old Headless King of the North
not Sidhe,
definitely not Sidhe
Sorry to say, but I'm not a funny Jester.
I sailed from ocean, to be your investor!
Run! Run for your lives! This is the last warning (there have been many before).
Glory to the Ivory Tower and it's disciples!
