As the army killed its second lich in three months, it was time to turn round. Armour wasn't good at stopping casualties from icy breath, only from skeletons and regular undead. The healers used their herbs as best they could, but the slow attrition was becoming noticeable, and it was time to go home and save silver rather than send for reinforcements.

The commander decided to send a report to the council exploring forces that would be cheaper to maintain and take less casualties - maybe getting mages to summon undead, or more steel defenders?

"And HEAVE! And HEAVE! And HEAVE! And REST!" 

The sailors and scouts were united in the venom of the looks they directed at the captain, who remained obliviously cheerful."

"Not far now lads, another swift bit of portage and we'll be at the shore and let the wind do the work for a change."

The lead scout spoke up, "Sir, I do seem to have noticed that you are directing our course to the north west, when the nearest shore would be to the north-east.  WHen were you intending to head us to starboard?"

"Rubbish!" bellowed the captain.  "Why if you come with me and scamper up yon bamboo, you'll see that we are but a hundred paces from the beach!"

Together, they raced up the green-flexing poles, to see the jungle stretching out before them until the mist finally drew a merciful veil upon the trackless mire in their direction of trave.

"Ooops," said the captain, "looks like it was north-east after all.  My bad."

And that's when first fanged and venom-dripping head rose up from the muck.  And then another, then another and another and another...

Recently, an opinion was expressed about the creation of the United Nations of Atlantis. We decided to ask about the possibility of creating such an
organization of the Grand Emir Timur:
- I think the decision to create the United Nations of Atlantis is somewhat
premature. Moreover I am sure time of this institution will never come. The
single absolute authority is required for the functioning of such an structure, which will resolve controversial issues. Perhaps there will be two such authorities. In this case the situation will be unstable and will soon collapse. Three or more absolute authorities are impossible, it will be just a war of huge alliances, nothing more.
In fact, at present all disputed issues are successfully resolved by diplomatic or military means between the two disputing parties. These can be either individual Rulers or Alliances of Rulers. 
We are following this process with great interest. Time will tell what the result will be.
