The Sidhe (11)
Making great strides after befriending the orcs, Leader stumbled into a caravan of Goblins. The goblins were in the middle of a solo performance. The long, sorrowful lyrics, intermingled by a stringed instrument, led the leader to try a cover by the Man in Black, Hurt. The goblins were surprised by the tones, but soon demanded more and more. It was dawn before the leader got a chance to sleep. More friends, more musics.

Trudging through the mountains, the scout thought he saw the terrain ahead getting flatter. Could it be... there were plains ahead!
 He then saw the huge number of scouts coming the other way. "It appears a starting city or gateway must be in that direction", he sighed while writing his report back.

Report of Imperial legate Gronnor:

"My Emperor! Our scouts, who were ordered to explorer nearby provinces, are reporting about wast plains north to our capital. If we will teach those mere humans and other races living there how to treat Mother Nature, we could get wast harvests from _our_ lands.

Our scouts encountered some strangers, hopefully, they are peacefull. They are different from races living on plains and we don't know from where they are coming. Scouts will try to track them till their home... We must know more."

Clan of Wild Men (Jungle) wild man [WMAN]
They are not really all bad, they are only very good in going wild. So their parties usually end in bloodshed. The average wild man can avoid most lethal blows at the above mentioned parties, but the unsuspecting adventurer will probably be killed in this activities. As already stated, this is not happening due to unfriendliness of the wild bunch, but to the inexperience of the visitor. It's a sad fact, that all attempts to establish touristic bureaus to avoid this to happen ended in failure as the clerks went wild.

What is this? Race discrimination of the most atrocious kind!
We demand that every man, woman and child... and orc, elf, gnome, gnoll and every other minority race have the same rights and opportunities afforded to them! We won't stand for this treatment and will pursue this issue until corrected.

Gnarl had mixed feelings about the situation. The last couple of years have been relatively peaceful. He was by far the oldest member of the small goblin horde that occupied the swamps southwest from the lizardman village called Panedyn. The horde counted over four dozen families and they all trusted Gnarl to lead them while they were waiting for the 'Overlord' to appear. The stupid fools. They eat Gharl's story about the coming of their 'Master' with hook and sinker and were eager to follow Gnarl until the coming of the master. Goblins were small creatures compared to other races and had a tendency of being subservient to other races. They ralery elected a leader from their own and even more rarely did that leader manage to survive long. Being a goblin leader was a miserable task. Other goblins only folowed you if you led by example and other races knew that eliminating the leader broke a goblin horde's moral so whenever there was a fight they targeted the leader of the goblins and by killing him they made the other goblins flee. If the goblin leader chose to escape his fate by fleeing his attackers he lost prestige and rarely remained leader for long. So the goblins either lived under a constantly changing leadership or they elected a leader above them from the other stronger races. Such leader was often cruel and abusive but the goblins didn't mind. Their chance of survival was much higher with even the most abusive masters than with goblin leadership.
Gnarl served a few masters before and when the last died a half a dozen years ago he came up with a plan. He invented a prophecy of the coming of their true master. He calld him the 'Overlord' and told tales about the coming prosperity and good times under their future master. And while waiting for the new master he assumed leadership. "Just until the new master arrived." he told them. Everyone obeyed hime because he was the oldest and wisest and probably knew best how to run things until the new master arrived and he did not suffer loss of prestige for running from their enemies as he was a strategist, not a warrior. No-one expected him to fight. They were sure that the new master would surely avenge all the atrocities his goblin minions suffered from the hands of other races. It was the perfect system and it worked for years. Until that Stupid Giblet brought Uthark to their hideout. The goblins took the Aurora Borialis  as a sign and accepted their new master immediately.
And Uthark went with the flow, accepting his new role. So did Gnarl, bowing to the half-orc brute three times his size hoping that he would survive the coming conflicts.
For Uthark was ambitious beyond any previous masters and he seemed powerful enough to back his promises. And he seemed to be a benevolent master. He did not kick them. He only frowned even when that stupid Giblet misunderstood his instructions and set their hideout on fire. Giblet was the horde's smith and toolmaker. He always tinkered with something in his little forge and Uthark, seing his affinity with fire decided to teach that fool fire magic. Real magic! To Giblet! Well, Giblet and two others.
Uthark had Gnarl think of all the possible candidates with affinity towards magic in the area. They managed to approach two of them and Uthark did the talking. Gnarl was very surprised that nobody died in the process. The folks living in the badlands never got along well with each other. 
Uthark managed to recruit both of them. A lizardman pyromancer called Shakaa and Ryzzar, a gnoll shaman. They both had a grudge against the lizardman village and were eager to hone their fire skills and see the guards burn. Giblet was only the third and last candidate that Uthark added on his own as Gnarl would have never suggested it. Dealing with Giblet was like playing with fire. Accidents were a daili occurence with the clumsy goblin. Having Giblet hurl fire magic was a completely new level of crazy. Maybe it was a good thing that he was no longer in charge. All he had to do is stay far a way from the clumsy fool. A few hours of walk distance preferably.

- Hey, traveler.  You are lost? Where are you from?
I slowly turned around.  It was a centaur. It looks about thirty years old, judging by the face, however how do I know.  Without weapons and quite peacefully smiling. Peaceful centaurs. What world did i get into...

something is creeping in the underworld
Tentacle enjoyed life. It was able to escape from this monster. A monster in a pink skirt and a terrible face painting. Green goblin female, grrr.
It appears that some anger quickly
Frozen Snails sounds much better.
Do ye hear what people are talking about? They say Naughty Princesses arrived in Nexus and they seem very anorexic - almost no flesh on the bones. No wonder they came looking for better feeding grounds, but if they delay too long only skeletons may remain of them - very naughty skeletons.
