The Admiral looked over the naval reports. Why had the galleon full of horses for the northern islands not reported in? He sent another vessel over - it seemed pirates had ransacked it and sent it to the bottom of the ocean. If you kill a pirate and wonder where they got all those horses from, it was The Children of the Four Winds. 

The Admiral pondered - why did they never attack the stone shipments? Perhaps he should start sending a lucky piece of rock with every ship.

From the office of whining and complaining, a new edict!

Are monsters trained about us? Do they see us and think: these are Fanhunters, let's do our best! There is no other explanation on why on every single engagement the storm cloud unleashes its lighting, the lich freezes our troops or the kraken creates havoc. We have witnessed battles with those monsters from other factions, and they go meekly into oblivion without lifting a paw. Why us?

It's time to build ourselves a junkyard. Somewhere to dump all the spinning wheels, nets, spears, javelins, wagons, etc. that monsters, for some reason, seem to have in abundance.So, If there's any packrats out there that just have to complete their collection of unusual hammers, you know where to go.

“Extra!  Extra! Read all about it! Warship stuck in marsh channel!  Crew in danger!  Hospitallers despatched in daring rescue!  Extra!”

The paper-seller’s shouts as it hawked today’s broadsheet got nothing but a snarl from Grotsnurph.   What fools these lizards be, to go out challenging kraken and merfolk and elementals – oh, my! 

No, Grotsnurph was one goblin who would be staying well safe and (relatively) dry – given that this was a jungle, although luckily it seemed another year had gone by without the monsoon coming.

His quick-pattering steps brought him to the inn doors at last, where the warmup act was singing like a tone-deaf water buffalo about standing up next to a fortress and shaking it down with a wave of his hand.  Because he’s an evil mage?  More like because he had an evilly-flat voice.

The rest of his goblins were milling in the green room waiting for the poor fool to finish, swilling beer and complaining when the waitstaff were slow to refill their (modest) tankards.

Grotsnurph nodded as a mug was pressed into his hands along with tonight’s set list.  Nothing new, but then these cold-blooded locals never wanted to move much after dark.

On stage, the openers were now wailing about taking about half a day to get somewhere by dragon flight… orcish castle magic?  Must be something to do with building out of rootstone.
  
Grotsnurph slurped the rest of his beer, then found his sticks and started to go over the intro in his head.  That was the opener’s finale, and there was the MC’s drivel as he introduced them…
“…and so, welcome to the Mauretania stage, ladies and gentlemen and the rest of you…. 
DREGS OF GOBLINITYYYYYYYYYY!"
