Dear Diary: Miraculously, I found some unclaimed land to tax. Just to pay the rent until I can find a large space to call my own. I hope the neighbors are friendly and the island isn't too small. I need to build a fleet anyway...

The council of the Four Winds met. There were screams around the city as all the production was in disarray, and no food was reaching the shops (even worse than that time people tried to leave a certain union). On investigation, it turned out that the quartermaster for the capital had disappeared. 
"How can this be? I thought he was well-guarded against enemies?" asked the councillor of the North Wind.
"Certainly he had an amulet of true seeing, and a huge room full of weapons and armour. How could an assassin get him?"
Much research later, it turned out that the dark energies unleashed by the black pyramid had devoured the most powerful being they could find, and the chief quartermaster certainly was powerful. A thin smear of ash was all that remained of one of Atlantis' great traders.

Rumors

Bleak week for Bleak Creek... from 9 sacrifices down to 7.

So unlucky.

Defenders:
Yasodhara (966), Bleak Creek tribe (75), behind, leader [LEAD], 3
  dragons [DRAG] (Combat 6/6, Attacks 50, Hits 60, Tactics 4), balrog
  [BALR] (Combat 6/6, Attacks 200, Hits 280, Tactics 5), shieldstone
  [SHST], ring of invisibility [RING].

Yasodhara (966) is destroyed!
  
Which one, pray tell, is next?  

Is it Artemida (3880)?

Or Bob on assignment (659)?

zZz (9587)?

Could it be Erika (995)?

What about Killerdog (994)?

Maybe, if my luck holds out, it'll be more than one this coming turn... then the fun and hunt begins.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, king of kings;
Look on my works, ye Mighty, no errors found!
