- Where are our men? When are they coming?
- The road is blocked!
- What? By whom?
- We don't know. They are hiding they identity, they covered up all of their emblems. What shall we do?
- What options do we have?
- We could try to go around, but it will takes us another month to arrive. And we are not sure if the other road is free.
- No, that takes too long. We don't have time.
- We can force our way through. But we are not sure what waits in these plains. It might lead to bloodshed.
- Do it. We cannot be cut off from our men. Issue the order: ADVANCE!
The sacred forests must remain pristine. Those who trespass upon the ancient trees will feel the wrath of the glade guardians. The Sidhe can only save those who heed our warning.
Cosnaíonn an Sidhe!

Busy roads bereft of music, this is a bad thing.

The general looked through a telescope into the distance, and wondered what the small bird was picking up. He then realised it was a very large bird, but extremely far away, and the little thing in its claws was one of their scouts.
"Take a message to the faction commander", he shouted, "we've spotted rocs in the hills!"
He sighed. Sadly these beasts had a terrible habit of getting the drop on your scouts, and would probably eat any of the faction guard if they moved in his direction.

Those plains are not so peaceful place... monsters are all around. Empire will put an end on them...

Ex-living ex-mages, mostly also ex-humans or ex-elves. Highly powerful, but also in the majority of cases highly frustrated about their multiple ex-states. Out of this frustration they tent to be very incommunicative and will relieve still living personnel, who incautiously occur in their vicinity, out of their living status, sometimes adding them to their also ex-living, but much less powerful subordinates.

Peasants chanted all day and night:
King is dead, long live the King!
King is dead, long live the King!
King is dead, long live the King!
Only one of them murmured:
You live by the sword, you die by the sword...
Do dragons exist? This is a very complex issue that requires scientific research. Therefore, the neighboring magicians were invited to solve this problem. In the final of which, the answer appeared:
The dragon is the result of a dispute between three drunken magicians about the answer to the question of whether crocodiles can fly.

The scout stopped his horse on the edge of the cliff. He wouldn't go further in that direction. Ocean again! Were we on a island? How big was it? With how many competitive neighbors were we sharing it?

Heresy is like a tree, its roots lie in the darkness whilst its leaves wave in the sun and to those who suspect nought, it has an attractive and pleasing appearance. Truly, you can prune away its branches, or even cut the tree to the ground, but it will grow up again ever the stronger and ever more comely. Yet all awhile the root grows thick and black, gnawing at the bitter soil, drawing its nourishment from the darkness, and growing even greater and more deeply entrenched.
Such is the nature of heresy, and this is why it is so hard to destroy, for it must be eradicated leaf, branch, trunk and root. It must be exorcised utterly or it will return all the stronger, time and time again, until it is too great to destroy. Then we are doomed.

So, we can ignore 'treasure issues', silver is becoming rarity. Well, well,.. There is rumor, in Underworld, there are veins of silver in hardest rock, one just need to be master of mining... Unfortunatelly...

When Bruno entered the world, his plan was to unite all the oppressed halflings and lead them to victory. Or at least to living a comfortable life. Yet after months of searches it became clear he's the only halfling alive.

The dense forest was not so dense. And it's not the number of trees through which had to Wade. It was the armed men who were warming themselves by the fire at the edge of the forest. While the scout was watching them, other armed men approached him from behind. It turned out, that this were guardians of forests, so they themselves was called. They wouldn't let the rider go any further. The scout was forced to go home.
It is time to seek guidance from the gods... are there any gods in this world? Show yourself!
While digging in the desert fremen discovered weird ancient tablets with magical symbols.
Runes are unknown yet but Lady Jessika already started translation.
Does it mean there was some ancient advanced race who lived here before us?
They have begun to dig deep under the surface. Iron has already been exploited but the craftsmen have only been able to produce cheap tools and weapons. Other resources will appear soon and they will be able to forge delicate and frightening weapons.

OK, that didn't finish off the guards. One more time!
Exploration was going too slow. We needed new markets to expand to. Taxing being a whole months undertaking was not good for the quarterly report.
VP of Research and Development (1353) had a breakthrough! If we combine the speed of the Centaurs with the brutishness of the goblins we can explore and tax with the same unit! The centaurs ride to new markets, drop off the goblins, the goblins... soften up the locals willingness to pay for protection while the centaurs scout the nearby areas for more unwilling locals.
It is a perfect mix of taxation and exploration. We call it the Mobile Infantry Squad for Exploration and Revenue Yield.
For short: MISERY.

The Darkest Night (48)
Uthark inspected his forces with a wicked grin on his face. They've come a long way in the last two months. True, they were nowhere near a regular army, the goblins were untrained and his new students wasted a lot of mana to squeeze out those small fireballs they were capable of shooting but it was still impressive improvement considering the short time they've had.
Gnarl proved to be a resourceful tactician as they prepared for the attack on Panedyl. He made a small representation of the village from clay and twigs and they carefully planned for a two sided attack from west and south to minimise the risk of friendly fire. They decided against a northern encirclement as neither Uthark nor Gnarl trusted the fire discipline of the 'Three Hazzards' as they called Giblet, Shaka and Ryzzar behind their backs.
Their hideout looked like a huge fire pit after two months of practice and they were certain that every living being in a month's walking distance was aware of their location by now.
"It's time to move." Uthark said to his followers. "Try to leave at least a few buildings standing." He added looking at the magic users then the small army began its short march towards the village.

Here we are again!
Serious blow to our plans was received recently, so our stories about evil will have to wait until we figure out things more related to survival.

- I'm Frank - the centaur said, and held out his hand to me.
- Fox - I introduced myself, shaking hand.
- How did you get here?
- i don't know, apparently magic. I stepped into the passage. Woke up here. By the way, where am I?
- We call our World - Atlantis. And this is the village of centaurs.
- Are there only centaurs?
- Not. Humans on guard. And beyond the village live elves and gnomes and many others.
- The guard? And to whom does the guard serve?
- Free guards. We pay them taxes for protecting us. Too big taxes.

King Sabaton looked out over the ocean. "I can feel wind."
Lieutenent Crakow replied, "I dug up some boat designs would you like to approve them?"
King Sabaton said, "Certainly and dig up some gnome crews. They are good at teamwork."

The tentacle applied martial paint to the body and attached twigs. And quietly crawled west. For a month he was chased by women. Not the right women. It was he who should hunt for them, and not otherwise! Centaurs are evil. Like goblins... Well fuck, as one monk said.
Anuii (44) is an evil faction: they didn't respect our agreement and killed my units. Don't trust them!!!
Thank you for that extra silver
Great! The giddy goblin Giblet grilling grumpy guards!

Alas someone died last turn due to a theft of 22 silver.
When will people learn that the real threat is the Devourer?
