A letter to the editor:
 Sir, once upon a Times this newspaper had excellent coverage of international affairs and insightful analysis. Now we receive scare stories designed to frighten us into cowering in our homes! Your journalists paint an unfailingly bleak view of the world when they are not simply repeating press releases.
Furthermore, you don't even cover the gnome football league decently! At least I have elven tennis to look forward to.

Yours,
 disgruntled of Patoshdesh.

The fighters have retreated to their corners. Trainers are busy patching cuts, and massaging tired muscles. The audience is on the edge of their seats, waiting for the bell...
Big Ol Bob (18)
When a dwarf fought alongside an elf, it made an epic tale. "Side by side with a friend", indeed! But now we have elves and dwarves and orcs all working together, and how does one keep the peace? They seem to have settled into a sort of blissful indifference. Thanks the gods that we are not forced to deal with this otherwise impossible work of diplomacy!

The messenger ran into the council chambers

"We beg to relay this month's report from C----, your worship"

The Grandmaster took the scroll. "What nonsense is this?"

"What part of the report do you not understand, your worship?"

"An all girl boy band of gnomes earned 276 silver playing in an underground dive bar. How does any of that make sense?"

"Money for the Order's coffers. Does anything else matter?"

"This messenger is not so stupid. Maybe we can replace that jackass we sent as ambassador who nearly started a war."

The messenger, knowing the fate of that ambassador, wondered whether this was to be interpreted as a promotion for wisdom or a death sentence for insolence.

We found a bottle in the ocean. Trying to decrypt the inscription.
Under Pressure (57)
Ss'hhss'ka swore quietly.  Another week waiting for the mage-damned cargo to be delivered.  They'd craned the outbound load ashore a month ago, then dropped ballast to collect the return goods.  

The factor had been right, it was just a short jaunt up the coast.  But with the holds barely a hundredth-full, they couldn't leave yet.  The loss they'd accrue would be staggering - it would bankrupt the partners.  

And Ss'hhss'ka's bonus was dependent on the partners' profit share.

So she picked up the cup, shook, and rolled the dice.  Acey-deucy.  At least the gods favoured her in the little things.
