"That went better than expected." said Edwin while looking at Neera on the other side of the street who was sitting at the wall of the inn hugging her knees and crying. 
"She killed only three." noted Slayn and turned over one of the fallen guards to search the corpse.
"The important thing is that she bloodied her hands and managed to defend herself." said Edwin.
"You shouldn't have used illusions on her. That was a dirty trick." noted FlameBeard shaking his head.
"If I haven't then she would have stayed out of the fight or shot some alibi fireballs in the wrong direction and kept her hands clean. We can't have that. We need her fully committed." explained Edwin.
"Are you sure she's not broken?" asked FlameBeard and swung one of the captured swords testing its balance.
"Mentally? The female part of every race is mental if you ask me. She's full of spirit though and that's what matters here. She'll get over it." replied Edwin.
"So what's next?" asked Slayn and pocketed a handful of silver coins.
"I'll continue to teach her. She wants to learn magic badly enough. The more power she has and the more she sees about the cruelty of this world the less she'll care about bloody goblins and treehugger nonsense." replied Edwin.
"I mean what's next for us?" asked Slayn.
"We get some wood, build ships and find some more guards to kill." replied Edwin.

The Council of the Four Winds read the battle reports, and saw that a commander had failed horribly and wasted many soldier's lives. They asked to interview the surviving leaders, but discovered there were none, and only a few lowly conscripts had fled the battle without being cut down. The other force was in an area a sphinx had just entered - it seemed that the Children were under threat from all sides.

A fort appeared in the distance. The allies were already there, waiting for them to arrive. One by one, torches flared, fires were kindled. Guyels reined in his horse and jumped off to the ground: “Wizger, we are almost there. Let's have some rest. We shall continue our way to the city at dawn". Tomorrow's meeting is to determine his plans for the nearest future.

"You're not such tough guys, you and your family," Shargha said.

Grugluf straightened his tie. adjusted his cuffs, and tipped back the brim of his hat with one finger.

"I'm not sure I'm entirely representative of my family," he replied.  He held out an elbow for her to rest a hand on, and she rested her talons there lightly.

Together they pressed forward to the ballroom.

Somewhere in Nazgubal, on the border of the Dogmoeryx Sands...
Papa Legba was thoughtfully filling a blue-black smoking pipe engraved with runes.
"What do you say about the local fauna, gentlemen, I want to hear your opinion," he took a deep drag, letting out puffs of smoke. The smoke formed into bizarre shapes resembling snakes.
"There's not much to say. animals are like animals, some of them are quite tasty," said Maitre Carrefour, gnawing a rabbit bone loudly and with pleasure
"You always were an idiot, Carre, Legba asking about those that has a particular smell, about the creatures," - lazy intervened Maman Brigitte, gently polishing bone strapon with the banana skin. 
"They are something similar to us but they not us, they are distorted and irreversible damage", -grumpy said Bawon Sanmdi, scratching his tattooed skull, "I had the idea to send hounsi to convert them, but I rejected. They can only be killed."
"Not only, brothers, not only. I've been reading elder scrolls. There can be a lot of benefis from the creatures. It is only necessary to kill them correctly," the smile of the Gran Bwa could only charm ettin, but there were no such nearby.
"Well," Papa Legba summed up, "killing is very good, and a lot of benefis is just fine. We will direct our efforts to this. The meeting is over, good hunting to your, my brothers, in this world."

What do you mean there aren't any horses any where near?  We've got to have horses: how are we going to get stuff moved around without horses?  We can't conscript enough of those stupid gnolls to move everything and the local dwarves think they are too good for transporting.  100 Kuatloos says that it'll be easier to get the hill dwarves to hump all that stone than to get the ice dwarves to do it.

Just sayin'.
There once was a man who wandered.
He liked monsters and they him laundered.
"It was rather divine,
But not very punchline",
He could say every time to ponder it.
