The Sound and the Fury....
Mining Expedition 23472
Tholrim of the Iron Fortress
The warriors on our west flank have been getting anxious waiting for this imminent attack from the horde of chaos. However this drawn out preparation period has given us time to strengthen our lines and we are prepared.
To our surprise the ogres to our East have vacated the area. I'm guessing that they ran out of food, or perhaps they received a commission else where. We will take full advantage of this to fully protect our flank and strengthen our position in the mountains.
Today the "Horde" of chaos finally showed up. It appears that there leader was absent, perhaps he actually was killed at the last battle. Another possibility is that he finds us to much of a hazard to his own safety when being threatened by the elves from the south. Regardless we pushed them from the road and scattered their forces. Our Western flank is still very much secure.
It appears the reprieve we had from the ogres leaving will be short lived. A new force of humans of the Empire have just recently showed up. It appears that they will be soon mixing it up with the forces of Chaos. Well at least while they are fighting each other we can continue to fortify these hills and mine them without interruption. It appears that our greatest threat at the moment is probably from the elves. They have been expanding greatly in the empty plains and forests to the south. Perhaps we should contain them before they get to be to much of a threat.
