Snail Traders of the Peaceful Frontier (106)
The Admiral unveiled the new plan. Using ships around the coast and lizardmen scouts, they would ensure total situational awareness.
"Gentlemen, I assure you we will never be caught unaware" he declared.

A new edict from the Ministry of We Cannot Rest!

One month, just one month of relaxing our whinnying, and the RNG deities are again stacked against us. We grow complacent, monsters go meekly to the slaughter month after month, and we just rest believing that the work is done. But not this month: this time the kraken decided that enough was enough, and took a serious interest of bringing as many of our men as he could before oblivion. Maybe he was too smart, what is a kraken doing with so many books?

Under Pressure (57)
Somewhere deep inside me there is a scintillating novella, a searing condemnation of oppression and a paean to the greatness of the human spirit, just waiting to escape some day the surly bonds of my psyche, and flood the Times with it's evocative imagery, poignant insights, razor-sharp wit, and wry repartée.

Some day.

But not today.

Sorry about that.
