The glow over the island, which I noticed at night, turned out to be a volcano. Listen, demons, I'm not locked in here with you. You're locked in here with me!
Thane's Ring (10)
A new island loomed out of the mist. The lizardman scout ran ashore to discover a desert, where the locals warned him against going inland. It was full of demons and undead, they said. Had he discovered the legendary Monster Island?
Children of the Four Winds (13)
The village fell, now time to organize more.
The Filras (14)
Gods are mortal afterall
Loki (15)
The elves were the ones making the best boat, so they will be the ones chosen to expand our horizons. We just hope to find friendly (or at least business oriented) people wherever we land, not those monsters we start to hear about. Maybe sending elves is not the best idea, there is a rumor that they taste better than chicken.

From the diary of Bohica Miaburn:

5th of September Year 1

Autumn is here. The days are getting colder which is unfortunate and shorter which is to my liking. I wonder if it would be possible to permanently cover the sky with thick clouds to never see the sun again. That would worth the time to study weather lore.

11th of September Year 1

The sailors left the city in their longship. I wonder if I'll see them again. The ocean is perilous. The four sailors brought a batch of herbs with themselves. They said they want to make a few nets and try some fishing but I suspect they just want to smoke it to calm their nerves on the dangerous voyage. Maybe I could try some. The city is safe enough to relax and get stoned once in a while. I'll ask Kresius to carve a pipe for me from some bones.

16th of September Year 1

Today Lester and I decided to experiment with the herbs to find out which ones are best for recreational use. Found two species that are pretty good. We spent the afternoon sitting on the roof of our inn getting high. Getting high on the roof! Get it? Lester poured some kind of alcoholic liquid onto the weed in the pipe and is blowing purple smoke circles as I write this. The lad likes everything that's fire or alchemy related. He can't wait to try his spells on the city guards.

22nd of September Year 1

Today I got reprimanded in our study group by this month's teacher "Shoot Them Later" for constant non-attendance for the past week. I was there the whole time! It's not my fault that nobody in The Culture (41) knows how to observe their surroundings properly. I told them to hire a proper ranger.

26th of September Year 1

My armorers finished their first batch of leather armor. I tried one on but it was too rigid for my liking. I'll give them to my bodyguards. At least they should have some sort of protection if they don't have any weapons. Still no news about those lions. I'd really like to have their pelt. Maybe I should recruit some rangers myself?
Indigo (17)
It seems our musings around the table were mistaken for prayers, and were answered. Two mountain provinces, two towns, and assorted other goodies. Perhaps the gods are raising us up, just to push us down.

Also, kudos to us for transitioning from one, only worthy of an early passing, to a destroyer of mages. What other great deeds will the minstrels sing of us.
Big Ol Bob (18)
First ship will be ready next month, but there are no sailors to put on it. Oh well, as the funds are needed else where, its gone wait on the dry for another month. And then we shall see what's beyond this island. 
Steve N Seagulls followers (20)
The opening of the Caravanserai was very spectacular.
The goblins were definitely happy.
“This is the beginning of a new era,” the old shaman said...
Beastmasters (21)
An assassination has taken place in our domain, between two factions other than our own. Someone lost a scout. Who could be responsible for such treachery, and who seeks to sow dissent?
Fenris Knights (22)
Krakens, I hate krakens, you never know where they attack you. The bravest men die in the sea, helpless and scared, there is no escape.
The Black Obelisk (28)
"I will lead the charge into the settlement myself!"
"Sir, I would highly advise against this path of action."
"But I have to set an example for my men!"
"Sir, if your men would follow your example in this matter, they would lie death on the ground in the first hour."
"I am a fierce and powerful magican, surely you can not believe I would not prevail in the coming battle!"
"If you would lead the charge you will not see the light of the next day. Your expertise with the sword in the heat of a battle is rather appalling. Your contribution to the overall victory should rather be given from the back in form of your magic and your leadership."
"I can not charge with my men into the enemy?"
"no, sir"
"spoilsport..."
"yes, sir" 
Nekojin Empire (29)
The beginning of the venture was very calm and without _any_ surprises... This fact alone made the Emperor be a bit nervous. if everything is so calm then expect big problems in the least expected time.
Avalon Empire (3)
Land ho - land ho. More people are making a living in this world. That eases our lonliness!  
Filcist (32)
A few setbacks, teething pains for a new order. But the neighbors seem friendly enough and shared prosperity leading to a new enlightenment for all mankind.
The Most Righteous Order (34)
My orcs discovered that the trees were home to a large number of wood elves.  They wisely hid their axes, lest the elves think they were there to chop down their trees!
Riders of the Storm (37)
We like ice dwarves.
SoE (38)
It's time to see the big world. Let's build a fleet and start the exploration.
WindMasters (4)
The sentient colour claims to have allied with a piece of architecture. I wonder whether this is actually something like the infamous "War in Heaven". Except meta. Hmm. 
The Culture (41)
Report from Scout #5

I just received the most dreadful news! My life long friend, Scout #2, was recently killed in the plains of Torburn! A cowardly assassination using what seems to be poison from the Likaetare flower.

I am trying not to think about this, but it seems I have become very nervous and is looking over my shoulder every five minutes.

The enemy can be hiding anywhere!
The Disinherited Knights (42)
Things are slower than expected. But the birds never give up. Flap your wings and raise into the skies !
Heralds of the Great Wahzoh (46)
Where to go now? Still, so much of the world to explore.
Kingdom of Bogmor (47)
After months of wandering first and alone among natives, finally the traders met several new factions. September was good months. Let's hope that at least majority of those met are not inclined to aggression, but can be persuaded profitably.

Meanwhile monsters eating traders and farmers everywhere. Does every cow breeder needs two dozens of armed orc guards?!
The Trade Guild (48)
Sneaky visitors on the island? Hiding their affiliation. They might not be long for this world.
Red Skulls (5)
Now that we have the village, time to start taxing the area and producing in earnest.

My general's eyes keep looking west across the great lake to the city in the swamp... It will be a while before we're ready for that, though. Keep training those troops, General!
The Greycloaks (51)
The ship was christened and set sail. One of the mapmaker's discovery was that there was only one map hex between two islands and natives still called it sea rather than strait. Straits apparently were wider.
Last of Cone (53)
The wandering Ogre is walking directly to orc's camp.
No-one feel the worry, men, women, boys, are continuing their tasks. Field workers simply put their weapons closer.
If Ogre will come closer, he will regret.
Under Pressure (57)
Hhhhhr-Ruhfff let her tongue loll as the next dwarf came to her cart.  The market square was quiet this day, but still she kept her ears pricked for the movements of the guard force.  The two amateurs who'd been nursing a small beer for over an hour were a giveaway, sat to oh-so casually keep her stall in their view all the time.

She'd added them to the list as well.
Church of Light and Truth (59)
As it turned out decision to attack Lizard men was questionable. They made souvenirs from our very brave mages that didn't anticipated ice dragon by their side. Revenge is growing by the minute:
1. Lions
2. Lizard men
3. Ice dragon
Wildcard (63)
OK, what next?
Past time to learn to make some weapons.
ClanJaguar (64)
Cash is tight, need to fund mages
Malibu West (7)
Strangers.
Acquaintances.
Friends.
Allies?
Fountain of Magic (8)
