General Tremones: Will they be friendly, will they seek blood? What do these neighbours have in mind? I expect  our Eagly Eye will get a good look at their badges this turn, then we shall see who they are and see if they want to talk with words or swords...
Filcist (10)
The Sidhe welcome those who follow the ancient path. 
The Sidhe (11)
On and on our hero walked, until they saw a ring, made of fire. Down, down, down they walked...
Legion of Boom (12)
Guards everywhere! Atlantis was turning into smaller and smaller enclaves, each jealously controlled. It is time to withdraw some wood and take to the seas, where only the krakens can stop you. Perhaps the secret of stopping the devourer is on a small island somewhere?
Children of the Four Winds (13)
Gnome exited the shaft leading to the underworld. Drow was already far away as he could not see anyone in that cave where he appeared. But there was someone else in that cave... a DRAGON! Holly Emperor! Fortunately, the dragon was fully occupied by eating something distantly reminding giant lizard... or what was left from him and have not yet noticed (let's be clear - he was just no paying attention to such small beeing as gnome is) our "lucky" gnome.

Only one thing left to gnome - start running as quickly as he can into a nearest tunnel into which this dragon will not be able to get into.

If you know your enemy, you can run more motivated
(The who is who of Scouts hazards)

Ettins (Forest)
Very slow and longliving creatures, it is not known if they are trees that have started to move or people that are stopping and growing barks and roots. If the last, they must be some kind of civilisation hating ecologists, since they are attacking every sight of modern technology like men with iron swords or armours, in wheeled wagons or any kind of man made buildings. 
Nekojin Empire (19)
Last night some cries and pleadings could be heared from Grotus forge. They had been heared if anyone had stayed there to do so.

But people preferred stay anywhere else. Despite all, one less assassin in the world makes no damage.
The Lizards (20)
We have discovered that our island is not! New neighbors are sought in the vicinity of 38,32 for trading and magical research.
Jax (21)
We have heard that many adventures (read: quests) are coming to this realm.
Those are great news! Skalperians will welcome new Avatar to their ranks with great pleasure.
Skalperians (22)
The beginning of the ninth month, but it was not possible to find the plain... Do they exist in this world? Or the scanty tundra is the only flat and open space.
Many say yes. Good for them...
Dark League (24)
Pirates?!  Word had come in that a den of pirates was spotted just off the shore.  The mage sighed as he placed the report on the stack of similarly exhausting news.  He added cutthroat pirates to his ever-increasing list of threats.  He hadn't counted on dealing with dragons, demons, trolls and even a sphinx this soon into his journey.  With that thought, he ordered a doubling of the recruitment and training efforts.  More orcs were never a bad thing.  The loud clanging of sword and armor in the background was a small comfort at least.
Covenant of Souls (26)
Orcinius threw the reports on the table. Forests and swamps surrounded by water, that was its new home... What could he do with that crap? Where were the green and fertile plains and the high and rich mountains?
Silver Hand (27)
It's nice one of my unit blocked wild creatures.
Demon's Duchy (28)

Valyrian Freehold (3)
This is not the first world that Devourer has destroyed, and unless we can halt him now it will not be the last. Should we fail, millions will die and we shall not be found blameless.
Ordo Hereticus (30)
Practically, I have nothing new to say, yet I feel an urge need to share this too...
Emptiness, void but also impatience. Strange. Void and impatience.
And something more, warm wind from desert brought unclear glimpse of magic's disturbance.
Fremen spirit is rising in burning fire. 
Frozen Snails (32)
So far the world is full of friendly people who hate unrevealing units. But such is the legacy of halflings.
Red Skulls (34)
The town of Rhedon is oppressed by greedy guards.
Our smiths forge picks, hammers and swords to liberate the town
together with our allies Frozen Sails and The Darkest Night.

Freedom for Rhedon!
Atlantis Explorers (35)
Magic in the world has always existed. In the last cockroach, in the stunted flower. People could always call out to her, begging for rain that would save the crop, or sending a curse on the annoying neighbor's head. But no one has ever been able to concentrate it for something serious. No one can use magic on their own. Besides them. Two friends who have learned to concentrate power. Everyone chose their own path, which led to a split.
Gyperboreya (38)
This is fremen lands.
Muad'Dib was trying to explain to City Guard that great evil is coming but they were just laughing looking at small fremen tribe camping next to the city.

It is sad but it's time to make a hard design. Muad'Dib turned towards the City Guard and whispered magic words.

City started aflame, tens of guards died immediately and shadows in desert cloths went in finishing the rest.

Nastad was their but killing those people was not good. Now it is fremen lands.
Fremen (4)
The scout walked down the tunnel during a long time, hours, maybe days, before he arrived in a huge cave. At least it seemed huge in the light of the torch. The scout didn't dare to shout to sense the echo. Who knows who or what could have heard hm?
Black Tower (40)
well, what's next appears to be more taxers needed ...
ClanJaguar (42)
VP of Sales (1354) is overjoyed! Every single guard has been gainfully disemployed from the city, and every single building is still standing! Imagine what a mess it had been if we had recruited haphazard goblins or something.

The city throws a welcoming parade in our honor as the people rejoice at being liberated from the stagnation of the status quo. Prosperity will arrive to the city and the surrounding plains.
Disasters Inc (43)
The presence of a centaur family in my regions has proven to be quite disruptive to local operations, and has even caused a diplomatic incident. One wonders whether the fresh batch of recently acquired and still bloodstained swords should be used to solve the issue.
Anuii (44)
Time loop:
Arriving from in the back of the army, four shadows slowly climbed the hill. From the bottom of the hill, for the few soldiers who dared to look at them, they looked like statues or dead trees, dark shapes in the gray of the dawn.
The guard which defended the city was to far to see them. And after the battle, if their dead bodies weren't laying on the ground,  they could have seen them keep still, as if they hadn't joined the battle.
the Guild (45)
Things are getting interesting.
The Darkest Night (48)
Uthark looked at the ocean shore with new hopes. Soon they will leave these poor badlands for richer places. All they needed was to chop down some trees and build a few boats. The sea had more possibilities and the moist breeze coming from the large body of water was definitely more pleasant than the stench of the swamp behind him. Or was it the stench of the corpse of the scout that his goblin minions brought to him? The dead centaur had seen better days. Scorch marks and sword cuts covered every inch of his body.
"Seems like Giblet and the others had some target practice. Their aim is improving.' Gnarl said examining the corpse.
"Good. At least someone benefited from the kill. Our treasury clearly hasn't." Uthark frowned then added. "Have them bury this fellow and send the agreed silver for clan Silver Hand (27) with our apologies."
"You wanna bury that fine meat?" Ryzzar, the gnoll shaman asked incredulously while profusely salivating a the sight of the corpse. 
"We promised clan Silver Hand (27) to treat their fallen scout with respect. Why? You want to eat him?"
"Hell yeah, the small folk hunted that centaur for days and we are paying a hundred pieces of silver for him. We might as well make a decent meal out of it. These swamps are poor hunting grounds and have been already picked clean by our forward scouts. I've eaten centaur before. Tastes like deer. We can bury the bones." The gnoll said eagerly and not waiting for permission grabbed the sword out of the hand of the nearest goblin and hacked off a hind leg. As on cue the goblins around him drew their swords and joined in and butchered the centaur in the blink of an eye while others went to get the cauldron ready.
"Very well." Uthark said with a sigh. "Just keep quiet about it. We'll have a few centaurs in our ranks as well quite soon." he added and made a mental note to keep the newly recruited centaur scouts far away from the gnoll.
Noizy Tribe (49)
Here we are again!
  Everything seems to be good now. We found some centaurmen and we found some elves. Should we do some crossbreeding? We could get many-legged quick elves or pointy-eared nice looking centaurs. Hmmm...
Dii Minores (50)
Did another random jump. Still not good. the region is occupied by monsters and there is also scout from some other faction. Let's wait for the night and triangulate my position from stars. Huh, this world seems to be quite small, small compared to from where we came. Let's go for another jump, maybe I will luckier this time ...
Malakoff (63)
King Sabaton mentions, "I feel fortunate that the other nearby factions are friendly."

Lieutenent Crakow replied, "The other kings mages are, but those centaurs in that cave over yonder look rather vicious."

King Sabaton commands, "Send in our loyal Centaurs to bring them to heal."
Feet of Fleet (7)
doh, it hunts.

> Filleann an Sidhe!

That's what Sidhe said!
We are much more happy with smaller lands this time
Escaped from Devourer but was slaughtered by another faction ... we shall unite against Devourer and not fight each other. But some people will never learn ...
*raise hand* Me too, I was surprised, when the order checker disagreed with Atlantis Little Helper.
Liar! Liar! Liar! Anuii is a liar who betrays his partners !
Beware of Scalperians - they are up to no good.
If you are preparing to sail, then be prepared also to meet huge sea monsters that roam the ocean.
