The sky over the sea was the color of slate, of steel, of tears.

At the prow of the longship, the stench of sweat and ordure was lessened by the wind as it rolled through the waves.  The captain, a grizzled lizardman with scales bleached by sun and salt, alternately laughed and roared imprecations at the apprentice trying to juggle both chimes and a jasper-tipped staff . 

On the fo’csle, the commander settled the gleaming cuirass on his shoulders for the latest time.  No matter what, the left pauldron rubbed – just enough to irritate.    Small boots scraped up the short ladder from the maindeck.

“All squared away, Rogrog?”

The goblin puffed his chest up, his smaller breastplate shining just as bright.

“The lads are ready, and I've got to admit that the stunties aren’t too bad. Better than dwarves. Their boss asked – asked, mind! – if I could bring you this.”

The commander took the bow.  Gleaming silver inlaid the yew that creaked as he gave it an experimental draw.  

“You know the drill then.  You hold the line, shields up and swords ready to hold off the beast.  The gnomes, the captain and I will make it a pincushion, and the bookworm will set it on fire for good measure.  Just like we practiced.”

The goblin nodded.  “I know we’ve drilled it, guv’nah, but my boys are a little… well, a little nervous about sumfink dis big, know wot I mean?”

“No one set foot on this scow without having mastered their weapon.  If you can keep it from coming over the rail, we’ll stop it cold. Do you think you can do that?”

The goblin’s green face paled to an unhealthy grey as his eyes fixed beyond the commander’s form, off to port, where the sea was spuming and swirling as if some great force disturbed it from below.

“I think… Guv’nah, I think we’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

- results?
- "we couldn’t catch them."
"From the tundra where they were, there were only 4 options to flee away. And they could only leave in the third week of the month, as they move on foot. I planned the entire operation.” -- continued Yakov, -- “at the beginning of the second week, reinforcements were supposed to fly from the city to me, and together we had to go to Undead. Unfortunately, we could overtake them at the beginning of the third week, just when, theoretically, they could already leave the region. Therefore, in a roundabout way, I sent two scouts, whose task was to patrol the surrounding regions and call us if they found Undead. But it turned out that among the four possible regions of departure there was one where the scout got in the second week, and already left in the third, and if the dead had moved there, we would not have been able to catch them. "
“Is that what had happened?”
“Yes, but what chance?”
- "Don't tell me about the chances in this world, don't start it..."

"Sweeper, was the silence last month intentional?"

As factions in the Hegemony of Cone built more temples around the world, the gods granted even more new temple quests. The question king asked his high priests was: will the quests stop once there is Temple to Cone in every region of the world or?
The priests could not answer the king's question. 
Kingdom of Charles (35)
So the fleet is off on a great and glorious Kraken hunt. Of course we, bobbing about in various cogs and longships, are doing the real work. And the real work is boring. Months out at sea, with supplies for far flung outposts. Why the far flung outposts anyways?

The Phrygians (83)
Akhorahil met with his builders to discuss the construction of a castle.  The amount of stone needed however was staggering and would mean that other construction projects would be delayed by months.  He adjourned the meeting and returned to his tower to think and resume his studies into the lore of artifacts.  He noted a report on his workbench from the scouts, reporting the seas were clear and calm and that fishing expeditions had resumed.

Rumors

Internal memo revealed:

Lately reports from customs authorities let suggest that our fine gilead herbs brand was victim to product piracy. Low quality herbs have been distributed labeled "made by gilead". It is to say that these products do not meet any of our quality standards.

Current state of investigations let us suspect that this is a direkt campain against gilead herbs. They try to sell their 3rd grade HPOT by spoiling our good reputation with fake low quality "gilead" herb products.

Further actions must be considered...
