Well, it looks like there will be some losses in the next few turns...
Legion of Boom (12)
The commodore looked upon the waters with dismay. The sunken ship in the distance looked bereft of life, and he had hoped for great seabeasts. Maybe a kraken, maybe an elemental - but there was only a tiny scrap of seaweed.
"About course, men", he bellowed, "we shall have to sail back the way we came and see if there are any merfolk in that cave we passed."

Headless Horseman
Different to a headless chicken, the headless horseman will not run around aimlessly. On the contrary, he will run, or to be exact charge, his horse very aim-fully into the nearest living being of the sentient persuasion. This is most likely the unfortunate scout surprised by the absent cranium of the incoming equestrian. In addition to the unfortunate effect of the exquisite mobility in spite of the missing head to the mental health of the observer, the headless horseman is also very proficient in ignoring incoming projectiles. Thus making a persuasion of discontinuing the charge towards the source of the projectiles or any other target chosen by the headless horseman very unlikely.

More bodies than heads in world. These are strange times
The Lizards (20)
We have spotted many Headless Horsemen in our lands and decision was made to make them Legless as well, because Centaurs complained about unnecessary competition.

In other news, there seem to be more and more guests in our continent that are not invited, they will be dealt with only way we know.

You can never have too many enemies. The more you've got, the more likely they are to get in each other's way.
Ordo Hereticus (30)
Most of the men held their 2 rounds. Their mission complete, their reward had been earned. ...Except another Balrog was spotted. Their service was needed yet again...

While searching the Balrog, some fool dropped a Cornucopia and it spilled lots more Cornucopias out together with healing potions. What a mess.

I mean, I'm all about gettin' paid, but it's getting harder and harder to be super RP for these articles.
The Darkest Night (48)
"I think we'll be out of the tunnels soon." Shouted Shakaa to the others. He was leading the group in a line formation with the 7 dragons at front followed by Nena and two other riders on winged horses. He gave up on reading a map while flying through the tunnels at neckbreaking speed. They also gave up on landing to ask for directions after the debacle near Yoybost when Giblet was at the lead and they ended up in a fight with the guards of Dark League (24) blocking their path that resulted in over 800 dead guards on Dark League's side without any injury in their party.
The tunnels suddenly widened into an underforest so they could form a wedge instead of a single line. They were about to argue if they should risk landing in the forest when Giblet shouted: "Impsies! Impsies! We arrived!" and led his red dragon into a practiced dive.
"No Giblet! Those are gnomes, not imps! We're still days away from the demon pit!" Shakaa shouted angrily as he recognised the creatures below wielding a banner of Gyperboreya.

After the battle was over they sent Giblet ahead to scout the area while they discussed the situation.
"Maybe if someone cared to teach that goblin anthropology instead of dragon lore we wouldn't be in this mess." Nena said.
"We shouldn't have brought Giblet demon hunting with us." Ryzzar agreed with his wife.
"Uthark insisted. If we left him in Shresta his dragons would have razed the city by now. I don't see a problem. The guards were blocking our path anyway. And we killed everyone in this forest and we'll be gone in a few days."
"Everyone will know it was us. Ours are the only dragons in the area. Dark League might have believed that Yoybost was an honest mistake but a month later we slaughter an army of their ally? What do you reckon, where did all these guards come from anyway?" Ryzzar asked Shakaa.
"They must have been the Owood garrison." the lizardman replied.
"There must be at least five hundred dead guards around us." Ryzzar said then he added: "You know, if we can't shift the blame and we keep emptying cities of all of their garrisons we might as well keep the cities."
Noizy Tribe (49)
Here we are again!
  We heard rumors that somewhere in underworld is a place where fanatic worshipers of dark forces go to sacrifice themselves hoping to be reborn as higher beings. They call it "receiving The GIFT".
  They take off all their clothes and items, go naked outside settlement in deepforest, and willingly put down their necks so that unspeakable horrors can easily cut their throats and drink their blood.
   Then hundreds of still warm agonizing corpses, gurgling for their last gasp of air, are put in big piles and long lost (or so we thought) evil spells are cast on them, reviving them and making them servants of the Dark.
  Then they wait silently for even more worshipers to come... naked, hopeful, happy to die and to receive "The GIFT".
  .... and then we see Headless Horsemen coming....

Why was the Headless Horseman depressed?

He could never seem to get ahead in life.
Wodia Empire (8)
Stone is the material that surrounds us everywhere. It forms the walls of houses, tunnels in dungeons, mountains, it's an impenetrable barrier to vegetation, forming vast areas of deserts. We don't mark it, we consider it as the resource being completely unimportant, but it actually shapes our life more than iron or the beautiful curve of the yew bow.
Stone is the first thing we encountered in the first steps in this world, moving by stone road laying in a stone desert somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

Rumors

Headless horsemen want to go to brothel.  Nothing else seems to be cut off except head after all.
