Underworld Column
-----------------

Good Mr. Hagen's Thane's Ring spirits tried to kill a dragon while that dragon's stomach was overbloated from eating little folk.  But there were two dragons.

Farther south, Marteniks' Trade Guild had no trouble helping a Sphinx transcend to the next plane of existence.


Peace Column
------------

We don't all have to fight.  Really we don't.  We could cook.  Yes, the god's gave us more types of armor than types of spices.  But they still gave us free choice whether we go to war with our neighbors or feed as many artists as possible.


Hunting Column
--------------

The Magogash claim the 2 problems of their Great desert are that it is full of sand, and that it is full of scouts.  If Mogogash either wait quietly in the sand, or studies observation, they will discover a third feature, the desert is full of monsters.  Whether this is a problem depends on whether the monsters are hunting you or you are hunting the monsters.


Obituary Column
---------------

Bebinn, Derwid, Boudica, Conchenn, Angus, Affraic and Waterfire were killed by Sandlings and Evil warriers.  They will be missed.  The spears they were carrying will be missed as well.

Beort Findchoem died in a thunderstorm.  Or seeking a thunderstorm, the evil warriors may have killed him before the clouds finished gathering, we aren't quite sure.

*... Wait - say that again?"
     "What?  'I put pineapple on it.' What about it?"
"You monster!"

The mighty hunting party was stumped - where had the enemy gone? In the meantime, they would have to settle for bringing kobold heads home.

Christmas Truce!!

Krakens are rare monsters. Don't kill them

This summer feels a bit more tolerable to Utuk'ku. Anything is better than the inferno from last year, and building is more enjoyable than running.

Is that the ore that glitters or does the ore glitter not?
Corvin Ravens (55)
What a devastation! Retreating orcs have mobilised local gnolls somehow. All drunk, razing their own houses, totally insane.
Orc Hunters (56)
A liar talking about lies sounds disgusting.

"Thank you all, don't forget to tip your waitress and try the veal, I'll be here all week," called the goblin, smiling as he scuttled off the stage.

Behind the curtain he in nodded in passing to the next act, dressed in a confection of diaphanous veils.  A servingorc placed a steaming bowl on the empty barrel before the entertainer as he carefully laid his instrument against the wall.

"Ah, yes, food, shelter, sex and guitars, the four basic needs of life."

He looked up as a drip of rain from the uncertain roof landed in the stew.

"Make that TWO basic needs."
The Fendahli (65)
Who could know that fleet could be so useful in these desert, but it is!
SuperBober (78)
