It’s so hard to choose...!
Fresh Meat (12)
The Ambassador realised that there were a huge number of factions he hadn't met, or whose ships had briefly passed by. Who were they, and where did they come from?

Looking at the map, there were two likely answers. One was the big grey patch on the opposite side of the world, the unknown lands. The other was that in the interior of unfriendly islands where his scouts had been killed, factions were hiding. The Ambassador requested that another ship be sent out in the direction of the unknown lands, and to leave the unfriendly islands for his allies to deal with.
Children of the Four Winds (13)
More possible allies met, nice.
The Filras (14)
From the newly appointed head of the ministry of whinning, here is their first edict:
How is it possible that, in an island with 12 plains regions, not a single had winged horses? It is supposed to be 20%! We were planning for three, and going to settle for two, but ZERO!!! This is completely unacceptable, and it will be raised to the highest instances of the RNG court (whenever we figure out where it is held). 
Fanhunters (16)
You'd think we'd be better dressed what with all the spinning wheels we've acquired killing off evil mages, sorcerers, and such. And, why do the evil ones have so many? Maybe if they spent less time trying on new duds, and more time studying up on evil witchery, they would have been able to put up more of a fight.
Big Ol Bob (18)
"Commander."
"Yes Sir?"
"We have High Elves but I think we're missing something...  Hire some Wood Elves too, they're just as good with a bow."
The Grey Order (27)
Should we build black keep close to our enemy territory? All armies will sail towards it. It would be nice team building and barbekue event. Isn't it?
The Black Obelisk (28)
It is becoming very hot... literally. Emperor needs a big and cold ale cup to cool down his mind.
Avalon Empire (3)
If you pass by, pass by...
Gyperboreya (33)
Now a new message in the bottle was discovered on the beach. What could be within it? 
The Most Righteous Order (34)
Sailing to equator belt ?
Frozen Sails (38)
200 SILV for our needs
Heralds of the Great Wahzoh (46)
Peasants demand money, ridiculous!
Red Skulls (5)
Hey, sometimes a few troops go hungry; is that any excuse to up and die?
Some weak fish in the army, it would seem; not any sort of fault of upper management, no way, sir!
The Greycloaks (51)
Shaman was sitting on a porch in his armchair with a candle on a table. He put off a newspaper and glanced at the dusk. Nothing special, no bad news, nothing happening. Kids are in bed already. Everything is going in its normal way. So why is this strange feeling inside?
Under Pressure (57)
"Back to work!" snarled the overseer, his snaggled tusks crooked and mucus-yellow in the dim light of of the scriptorium.  "You're not paid to gawk, you horrible lot!  Next scholar I catch slacking off will be getting a taste of the cat and no mistake!"

Ellor let his eyes slide left, where the goblins laboured over the typesetting. Their scarred heads twitched in time with the nimbleness of their grasping taloned fingers as they placed the lead in the master form, occasionally still cursing if the pieces remained too hot from the previous page.

In Ellor’s own section, the human scribes laboriously added to the word count in their painstaking longhand, quills flicking and dabbing to keep their birds’ scratchings even and precise. They might be paid by the word, but to come in under the minimum meant no silver.  And no silver meant no food, nor rent, and then his bedridden mother, mad aunt, and delicate flower of a sister would be forced out on to the street.  There the rains would drive them through starvation to death by consumption.
And Ellor could not have that.  And so once more he bent his head over the parchment and set quill to it.

Rumors

Second jab done now.
Summer breezes, monster hunting
Arm bloody hurts though.

If you actually read the times, put a rumour in, even if it's just your faction number.
Yeah, well, I’m gonna go build my own Black Keep, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the Keep!
