Attacks on the Malakim Groups of desert Orcs have begun to assault the Malakim position. While the numbers of the attackers are few so far, their numbers could quickly grow. No demands have been sent, which means this will likely be a battle to the death. The Malakim had better prepare their defenses or they could surely lose everything they had achieved. Demon Groups of walking skeletons and specters have been sighted near the Hippus, Ngomele, Kuriotate, Bannor, and Clan lands. Many believe that these groups are connected in a way, possibly controlled by a demon. These undead are surely a threat to exploration and possibly to further expansion. Kraken Several large creatures, resembling squid, have been sighted in the oceans. While not close to any cities at the moment, they could easily become hostile and attack. The Lanun and Grigori are the ones most at danger as most of their trade takes place over the seas, being island-bound nations. These creatures could bring in quite a profit if harvested correctly, but for the moment, the question is whether they will attack or not. Rockslides In the Khazad nation, large rockslides have endangered their workers and threaten to close down several of their mines, the source of their wealth. Their is no answer as to what caused these rockslides, but the Dwarf citizenry of the Khazad whisper of curses bestowed by other nations, the Gods punishing them for leaving their caves, or one of the many other explanations that have been given. The leader of the Khazad should be careful going forward to avoid anymore rockslides.
