Hide 'N Seek!
Thane's Ring (10)
Once more, armies and assassins swarmed around the land. It seemed everyone was fighting for control of the land, but perfectly content for traders to keep coming and going as long as they didn't tax any of the worthwhile lands. Clearly the most warlike factions were on the rampage.
Children of the Four Winds (13)
The Hyrda hunters are ready again.

The main battles on the nearby islands were thrilling. Now they look like reruns.

Trying out some new digs. It's a little more post-apocalyptic, then our old home, and the beaches aren't as nice. We'll have to import some nicer sand.

"It goes well Sir. Five months until completion."

Portal ready. "Evil mages" of south - go, bring rich spoils. Very expensive things lay ahead we need tons of silver but we are to lazy to dig it in mines.
By the way - any one wishing to buy insurance ? World is full of thugs.

Looking out over the ocean.
Under Pressure (57)
Khois Ironbeard gave a moment's thought to her kin as she turned back to the wagon.  Her brother Varak was a month's ride back across the firemountain, a Hospitaller now with razor-sharp sword and bright silver shield.  Probably sat on the tail end of his beard - iron or not - waiting for nothing to happen.

Khois hoped nothing would happen, anyway, as she hefted the next fist-sized stone into the roadway trench down to the base of rammed earth.  Another furlong and she'd have the concrete poured to stabilize the layer, which she hoped would be complete by dark.

At least she hoped it would, with a nervous glance up at the giant's keep stretching high into the clouds.  Her brother's Hospitallers and the air cavalry had slain the original inhabitant, but how long would it take for another denizen to take up residence?
Church of Light and Truth (59)
Our men have advanced from eating just livestock in ocean to studying as well.
Times are good and new horizons have been reached, but for how long?

General Disasters Inc (8)
Oh, North is North, and South is South, and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth and Sea stand presently at GM's great Blasphemous Feat;
But there is neither North nor South, Guard One, nor Faction Point, nor Number Gap,
When two strong Sovereigns stand face to face,
tho' they come from the ends of the map!
Nomads (82)
I just witnessed an attempted assassination!

Rumors

You picked a fight with our neighbor, now you gonna die.
Indian summer
Heavy hazy sultry air
as leaves turn orange
One afternoon I said to myself,
"Why aren't volcanos more safe?"
Now unsafe is just the thing,
To get me wondering if volcanos are attractive.

How happy is the barren, desert isle!
Now bare is just the thing,
To get me wondering if the desert isle is inhospitable.

When I think of oceanic monsters, I see a merfolks.
Sea merfolks  - the true source of magic wagons.

When I think of inland, I see a wing horses.
"Heehaw", said the inland,
And "neigh" then "neigh" again.

whirlpools are not bloodless!
whirlpools are exceptionally bloodthirsty.
whirlpools are violent,  whirlpools are insidious,
whirlpools are homicidal, however.

I cannot help but stop and look at the scattered archipelago.
Does the archipelago make you shiver?
does it?
