The roofs are shining from the rain. 
The sparrows tritter as they fly, 
And with a windy April grace 
The little clouds go by.

Though the rumors from the other sides of the Gates murmured of apocalypse. The young mage prepared to step into the unknown. He was pretty sure the Nexus wouldn't survive the end of the world any better than wherever he ended up.

Odd times indeed. The battle fleet spin casts for Kraken, while the mines go unexploited. While the old guard is resplendent in admantium, the new recruits make due with the discarded implements of war, left to rust on old battlefields.

The Most Righteous Order (34)
"Hey, the world is ending!"
The call woke the Elder Trader up. He looked up from the table and the pile of paper that he had been asleep on. The large room was piled up to ceilings with paper sheets - orders about what goods to sell, where to sell, what to produce, where, why, to whom. Written orders, signed orders, draft orders, forgotten orders. Again he had worked too much and already forgotten when he begun.

"What?" he tersely asked.
"The world is ending," said trader apprentice entering the room, "didn't you read the Times?!"

No, he hadn't read. He hadn't read for long time. Once the faction was avid reporter about the growth and exploration of new markets, but now... Elder Trader looked at its room again. So many daily orders, that vision of faction were lost somewhere and at sometime. Treasury reported Trade Guild to be first in world in most of the reported things, so life is good. It appeared that it even had almost half of the world's stock of floater hides. So many unbuilt airships. Hundreds of smiths mad all kind of metal tools and swords plate mail and other things and those were sold lucratively in markets from Bispchute to Edorf. 
But now they said that the world was ending. No more airships were needed. No more things to produce.

So, no more orders needed. No resurrection of strategy needed. But judging from messages received from the friends - many close and far away, there seemed that there was one last thing to do. One last project. One last commitment by many traders.

But it also meant, some more orders. Elder slumped back on the pile of orders serving as his chair and took up pen.


The Trade Guild (48)
Orc-father bought the paper on his way home. On the masthead shouting in big letters was: "Vile ritual has been performed at plain (18,0) in Cetheim!". Strange, but all other pages as well.
Under Pressure (57)
Ellor looked at yet another flyer that the recruiter dropped on the table.  

"Come and see the wonders of the North! Excellent rates, short-term contracts, no experience needed, only high-quality applicants need apply."

He took a sip from his rather warm and somewhat insipid bitter.

"More sacrifice lottery places? Sounds a long way to go to have your heart cut out by a dark mage, sunshine.  If the rates are so good, why don't you push off and volunteer"

The recruiter looked around as a hush fell on the bar, suddenly cowed by the glares of the regulars, and slunk away.

May the world last long
Flame-crown'd bright glory
Down avenues old yet hale
Calls greying pilgrims
