The Council of the Four Winds summoned the Chief Wordsmith. "Reknowned poet, we sent you out with a task to check the wordplay of our land. Did you go out and ask a reasonable group, say more than nine people, if they intentionally made any puns?"
"I did. I asked that number of people and it turns out they claim it was all entirely accidental."
"Really?" replied a councillor, "there was no scheme to make us groan?"
"No", said the wordsmith,"I clearly asked if there was any intention of making wordplay, and they assured me no pun in ten did!"

From the diary of Garthan Silvertong:

2nd of May Year 4

We managed to resupply the fleet at Scrertil. The locals herded a hundred livestock into the harbor for butchering. We'll eat steak tonight.It's a pity we can't bring them along our voyage alive. We'd have enough room for the animals but we don't have enough feed for them and neither do we have enough men to clean the ships of their manure. So we're turning them into beef jerky.

9th of May Year 4

We seem to have a curse on our artificers. Both Kresius and Regdan failed to create any staves or widchimes three times in a row now. Only Lester is distributing his swords to the troops every month as a ceremony. The lad thinks the soldiers will protect him better if he hands out his enchanted swords personally. It's bullcrap. The soldiers like booze and wenches better than shiny swords. And I made arrangements to supply them with those. I have their loyalties not the piromaniac lad they only see once a month.

15th of May Year 4

With the completion of the third ironwood war galley two of the galleons became redundant for the fleet. We decided to reroute them to ferry duty. It's time to reorganize our logistics.

24th of May Year 4

Admiralty decided to attack any creature we see on sight while at sea and the hunt is turning out quite bountiful. Nothing major, just two pirate gang and a bunch of merfolk so far but it saves us from boredom. It's a pain taking inventory of the loot though. I wish I could delegate the task. It was more fun while I was still hunting for a proper weapon. Ever since I got my staff I got disinterested in the loot.

"Yes, Commander. Here."

"Commander! Commander! New Orders!"

A little later...

"Ah, just in time Commander... I have orders for you to distribute!"

M finds this message he received most puzzling nonetheless. He calls for the Minister of Trade, who asks
"Why does Count Westwest not want to trade truffles for ivory? Truffles are delicious, and ivory makes such nice chess pieces. We all gain from trade including the growth of the settlement!"

An experienced counterintelligence officer like M knows what a suspicious world really is.

Under Pressure (57)
Smithers could see the beach now.  The pegasi darted this way and that and the defenders occasionally hacked with futile desperation at them, all coherence to their formation gone.  The cog crested the next swell then rode down before brutally slamming its keel into the trough - the captain had every stitch of canvas on her to close with the shore as fast as the old girl would take them.

Behind him, aft of the fo'c'sle, the Hospitallers waited, their muzzles panting as they hefted the ladders.   A lone pirate called a warning pointing at the cog, an panicked shout cut short by a gleaming sabre of the air cavalry.

Then the sand hissed beneath the keel as she rode up on the last few feet to the edge of the shoreline, and captain, sailor, and passengers alike were thrown forward as the ship dragged to a stop.  Smithers kicked the bolts free and the bow ramp splashed down into the shallows.  

"We're still in the water" growled one of the troopers.  

"Then we'll start the fight right here," spat his sergant, and with a howl the Hospitallers charged down into the surf to bloody glory.
