Medger grumbled, "I'm sure the guards will notice something. Randyll replied, "No, give it to me, I need the stuff.  Unseen by the guards, the two figures slipped out of the inn and went about their sinister plans.

"You should really do something about the roof." said Neera to Edwin as they lay in bed looking at the ceiling as the mid-morning sun was shining through half a dozen holes.
"Can't. The innkeeper told me that he tried to hire some builders but goblins can't build anything more complex than a straw hut. Inns are beyond their capabilities. Even if it's just fixing the roof." replied Edwin.
"It was still nice to sleep in a bed again. Even if for just one night." said Neera.
"So you consider this a one night stand?" asked Edwin.
"Can you afford to rent this room for longer?" asked Neera with a mischievous smile.
"It depends..." began Edwin.
"Whether we can take the town from the guards?" asked Neera her mood darkening in an instant.
"I was about to say whether you make it worth my while again but I like your thinking better. Ouch!" said Edwin and rubbed his side where Neera elbowed him.
"Everything is a joke to you! We are to kill a hundred guards in a week." said the she-elf and sat up in bed.
"That's why I invited you to dinner last night to take your mind off the coming battle. Besides, it's just goblins. And only eighty, not a hundred." replied the wizard still rubbing his side.
"Just eighty goblins you say. Should that make me happy?" countered Neera.
"It's a cruel world luv. People die by the hundreds every day. I didn't think you'd make such a fuss about it. It's not like I'm asking you to kill your own kind. They're just goblins." said Edwin.
"You are a selfish evil bastard you know that?!!" shouted Neera and got out of bed.
"I'm pragmatic. And I never made it a secret." replied Edwin.
"I thought I would be able to change you into a decent person but I was clearly mistaken." continued the she-elf while dressing hurriedly.
"It's an impossible task my luv. Don't blame yourself." replied Edwin and dodged the two glasses and the empty wine bottle that Neera grabbed from the nightstand and hurled at him.
"I hate you!" Neera screamed and rushed out of the room.
"Women. Whether you tell them the truth or you lie to them you can't win. Well, at least she's fired up for next week's battle. The question is: How do I make her to hurl her fireballs in the right direction?" wondered Edwin and started dressing.

Grey Order (19)
While sending out invitations to the neighbours, the Ambassador of the Four Winds decided to perform some intelligence work by getting his minions to check who had been active at least 60 seconds before a crucial deadline. It seemed many people did not send their minions orders for June, and this was June-uinely a bad idea. Still, they wouldn't be as upset as the people who skipped May - they were thoroughly dis-Mayed.

Many years ago, when the world of three spheres was inhabited by witchers, magic and monsters, there lived one of the most discrepant heroes of that time - the Lord of the Rats.  In the end of the Great War, when the Source was activated, he disappeared.  Some people thought that he died during the conjugation of the spheres, but they were wrong. 
	Four riders raced through the night at breakneck speed. They were rushing to the capital without stopping, not sparing their horses. Guyels grinned to himself, as if remembering something, and waved his hand. The lightning streaked the night sky, illuminating the desert below. The magician looked into the sky and thought, "Finally, it's time to have some fun, like back then."

Well, do you probably want to know what happened to my scout, my brave devoted lwa, who was looking for silver to withdraw a horse? Everything is fine with the horse, and devwe lwa dashed past the Hydra's bog famously.
But now he looks at the two bog things among a swamp with bewilderment and disgust. How do they stare at him, and whether they can stare, is known only to God Random.
Let's sacrifice to Him by uploading the order.

Questions people often ask - do you need a horse to be a knight? Can a knight be on a camel? This is not an easy question!

Sir Leonardo did extensive research that did show that history does not know any knights without horses. Does it mean that horse is a half-knight and the rider is a second half? How should we call half-knight riding a camel? C-night?
The Order of Holy Grail (41)
Life has settled even better. Apparently some degree of intelligence in land of orcs is genius. Therefore, I can get to live in relative luxury as long as I have some way of explaining my reasons. Now I don't have so good life as in years of being in Trade Guild, but it is way better than interim years when I wandered across the forgotten world ruins.
I am also getting more used to the diplomat status. Being part of agressive faction these tasks are markedly different from trader ones, as apparently mutually profitable deals are not ok with weak opponents. Well, I am no lover of permanent conflict but apparently will have to live with that. Still will try to steer it away from suicidal tendencies, although those orcs are really eager to attack anyone that appears weak.

Wonderland (55)
Two giants and a sphinx, well at least the bets are starting to come in.  The High Gamemaster seems like he is starting to get his stuff together, but with monsters looming and not enough people to move the stone he needs he's going to have to get things moving faster.  The odds say that his own faction may revolt; thugs are gathering in Bulguzun and the local gnolls are hunkering down expecting fighting in the streets between the pro-Gwellynn gamesters and the malcontents.  For their part, the locals, while concerned, are hoping the Gamesters eradicate themselves and let them get on with their lives.
