Running the Empire becomes a tiresome. Perhaps it was worth staying no more than four shores. But the life is the realization of the mistakes that we made earlier.
The Eight Shores (11)
See last month article:
Land Ahoy! 
Gilead expedition forces discovered first foreign coast. We hope the natives are friendly (and like herbs).

...due to minor typos we'll just try to do this again ;-)
Gilead (111)
The dragon hovers above the underworld city.

All are hidden as they can. All know that a rescue army is coming. All keep in mind the last words of the messenger : 

"Look to our coming on the first light of the third day, at dawn look to the south-west."

All are holding their breath... and squeeze their butt.
House Arkonide (112)

Balrog... Something new for us. And how many MARM'ed gnolls you need to get him down?
Gray Ones (16)
The sun was setting as he rode his horse through the city park. The awful smell of cigars reached his nose. Or was that the high elves and their herbs? He sighed as neither was good.
King of the Penguins (18)
The unit was given a simple task. Bring silver from A to B. To accomplish such task a glider was given. Problem is the water. A small error, and you lose your unit.

Good ideas are needed!

The Hunt Begins (4)

Miserable Maniacs (40)
We've noticed some previously unseen factions in the neighbourhood. You can tell that we're the good guys, because you're still alive.
Northern Viking (42)
The wizard carefully studied the curriculum of his school of wizardry. As someone well versed in the foundations, was it better to summon a huge number of illusory creatures that may deter an enemy, or a modest number of real creatures to fight?
Children of the Four Winds (44)
Well, we have not been able to get rid of the parasites. Our island is just infested.

We have adopted capitalism though, so everything can be replaced for the right price. Maybe we should just retire and let some others manage this.
Little House of Acceptance (49)
nothing special this month...

Rumors

The quack doctor Gilead is spreading across the world. Don't accept his herb if you value your sanity.
Some would say that for some factions like King of the Penguins or Riders of the Storm, it won't change anything.
