Well, well, there's a squatters in our castle. If a palace is empty doesn't mean it can be occupied. Leave or prepare to be evacuated.

The recent cartographic efforts were very pleasant... although it just proved that this world is just one big dessert. It requires to more carefully select the targets... targets for development (not what you thought).

Edwin and his students were standing on the roof of the inn looking at the lone dwarf running from about five dozen chasers. It was a manhunt, or rather dwarfhunt. The scout of Kingdoms of Leonia (45) was no longer welcome in Metanokles.
"Ten coins it will be our gnolls who catch him. Who's in?" said Edwin and put ten silver coins onto the edge of the chimney.
"You are on mate. Here's my ten coins. But it will be our allies. They have the most men." replied Flamebeard and matched Edwin's coins.
"Slayn? Are you in? What's your pick?" asked Edwin.
"Allied forces." said Slayn and added his stake to the pot.
"Neera?" asked Edwin.
"I can't believe you are betting on the life on that poor dwarf." said Neera angrily.
"That wasn't the question. You can win thirty silver if you guess right." pressed Edwin.
"You are all disgusting." replied the she-elf.
"Last chance. Are you in or not?" asked Edwin.
"Orcs. Our orc headhunters will get him." said Neera in a whisper.
The dwarf lasted five more minutes then the show was over.
"How did you know?" asked the dwarf from Neera.
"Easy. When it comes to physical violence I always bet on orcs." replied the she-elf.
"What will you do with your thirty silvers? Have a pretty grave built for the poor soul?" asked Edwin from Neera as she picked up the coins.
"No. I'm sure our men will take care of the body. I'll buy myself some fine wine and try to erase this half an hour from my memory." replied Neera and climbed off the roof.
Wandering Monsters (15)
Visited by a gating mage? You'll have no luck here. The land is already crowded.
Sultans of Sling (16)
Brave words. I've heard them before, from thousands of species across thousands of worlds, since long before you were created. But, now they are all Borg.

Time to remove the City Guard from their duties is here. Lets see how it goes.

“Right, things seem to be going in the right direction.”
“They are... but slowly. We need to think about transportation.”
“Of course, you're right.”
Grey Order (19)
The Children of the Four Winds have created a new holiday, Sphinx-ter day, where they celebrate 90 days without a sphinx attack. The centaurs have not reacted to having their lands taxed either. Maybe the monsters are less of a threat than badly advised combat troops?
Children of the Four Winds (20)
We need they swords!
Elven Kingdom of the North (21)
We regret pillaging the forest as now we need the wood!

Peace at all costs!

Attack the town you say? Lead the charge you say? Not till I've packed up the picnic, and shaken out the beach towels I say.
The Big Bad (23)
The plan was simple. 
Thane's Ring (24)
This is an interesting idea: franchise. We should start opening in other cities, and replace the disgusting food that they are surely eating with ours.
Fanhunters (25)
Riders reached the city at dawn. After showing guards the dispatch, they were allowed to enter the gates. Meanwhile, the city was waking up.  The streets were getting crowded with people making their way to  wokshops or market square. The traveleres passed a whole caravan of stonemasons that was heading to the ruined fort in he northeast.

They decided not to linger at the inn and went straight to the guild. After the meeting, Guyels was laconic: "We shall stay here".

The last Ogre finally felt in a terrible crash and the dust was slowly settling, recovering the dead bodies of the soldiers who bravely fought the beasts.
"Well, this setback would delay the original plans... At least the Silver Hand survived its first combat!"
Silver Hand (27)
There is a damaged fort near the settlement.
The most of the building look very solid.
I've decided to restore the fort.
Crimson Keep will soon be ready for some warfare.
The Tribe (31)
So many magical towers around. And these mages look very suspicious.
Red Skulls (32)
Merchants everywhere... 
Lazy Paladins (35)
Few more months and we are going away from the desert to look for a better life elsewhere.
Upright ones (37)
Papa Legba bent over the map. The reports of devwe lwa and good neighbors made it possible to assess the nearest territories.
"Looks like we'll need to build a river fleet in the desert," he thought, picking his ear absently. "Sounds wild, but so close to the spirit of lwa. Plus, it's time to add the fish cuisine. Smoked merfolk tails in nazgubal style, mmm... Delicious."

- Ice dragon run away! - reported Sir Big Hands Jummy. - Have Faith and your enemies will fall!

Rebuilding from chaos this wyrm did will take time but with Goddess’s help, we shall survive!
The Order of Holy Grail (41)
Despite orc eagerness to fight, I have come to realize that they are not too great fighters. Although, most of new recruits is of worker caste rather than warriors.
Nevertheless last month at least they got their first kill. Not celebrating because all died, but probably died happily. 
However, those conflicts definitely will not die down. There are already at least two factions in neighbourhood that are interested in fighting orcs, so recruitment drive is in overdrive. Seems that there soon will not be enough food, but well it is mostly desert after all.
Hangry Orks (44)
The Sphinx has appeared in our area... Maybe he's homely and not aggressive. But all the residents are in fear and waiting for his attack. This will be the last day for them. Even magicians can't do anything against the Sphinx. Waiting for death is worse than death itself...
Gyperboreya (46)
Nature is very diverse here. We see deserts between mountains, plains, forest, water. What a rich planet. Fauna is diverse as well, that is the risk for our people.
Truth seekers (47)
We managed to avoid fight with sphinx this time, but it won't last forever. We must become stronger.
StarFire (50)
After the battle with guards 15 swords were laying around and that was good, but only 295 silver and that was bad. Our guess is that they were warned and stashed rest of the coins somewhere, will be doing the search for next month.
There are also news in other war with creatures, Ogres have entered the picture and if they attack our producers, somebody is going to be very angry, namely Ogres, because producers will be just dead.

Gwellynn puts down uprising -- Gwellynn, the High Gamemaster of the Gamesters of Trisaklion, against all odds, successfully put down an uprising amongst the Gamesters overseers.  The overseers are tasked with getting the profits from operations in outlying areas and complaining of being overloaded and overworked flatly refused to move last months receipts.  While the uprising was put down and the overseers are back on the job, Gwellynn was forced to some concessions, hiring additional overseers.  This, of course, will reduce the future profitability of Gamesters concerns and indicates a weakness that future gamesters may well exploit.  The odds that Gwellynn will keep his job (and his head) have gone up once again and betting remains vigorous in the face of the Gamesters apparent instability.
