City in Flames

After a brief assault the City of Alteberg is in flames tonight . The forces of the Imperium have retreated after a lightening raid. The inhabitants have deserted the City and are making for the capital of the Duchy of Tradgardland. The Tradgardland Army is standing by in case the Imperium causes trouble further within the Duchy tonight. The Tradgardlanders are said to be in a state of shock after this occurred without any prior warning or diplomatic endeavours.

A very good explication to the disappearance of the blog...


P.S.: a city may be like a phoenix - and will add one to its coat of farms, once revived.

did anybody else notice the devil's face in that smoke cloud?

Frankfurter said...

As the Migraine, uh, Margravaine Rhabbidiers would have warned Tragardland before ...
Pink Elephants are beasts of Bourbon.....

See, nothing good can happen when you cosy up to those perfidious Gallians.

The devil's face in the smoke cloud..
reminds me of William Blake's poem:

"O for a voice like thunder, and a tongue
To drown the throat of war! - When the senses
Are shaken, and the soul is driven to madness
Who can stand? When the souls of the oppressed

Fight in the troubled air that rages, who can stand?
When the whirlwind of fury comes from the
Throne of God, when the frowns of his countenance
Drive the nations together, who can stand?

When Sin claps his broad wings over the battle,
And sails rejoicing in the flood of Death;
When souls are torn to everlasting fire,
And fiends of Hell rejoice upon the stain.

O who can stand? O who hath caused this?
O who can answer at the throne of God?
The Kings and Nobles of the Land have done it!
Hear it not, Heaven, thy Ministers have done it!"
