My turn done.
The Great Chieftain and his council, having sailed and captured Kul Rullak, decided that they had no choice but to press on inland. They had heard tales of a fertile valley to the west of the mountains, once inhabited by a mighty race of men but now a place of the undead and crawling things in the night. "Nekehara" - the word rang around the camp, doom-laden but somehow enticing. And so the march began.
The Dragon Islanders marched over the mountains, and then headed for the capital of the lands of the Tomb Kings, Kenehara. The city was swiftly taken after a counterattack failed, and the Islanders declared it their new capital - Islanders no more, perhaps, but the people of the Dragons nonetheless. Plans were swiftly put afoot for the conquest of the rest of the lands nearby. Firstly Alaphis was taken after a furious battle with vast numbers of undead chariots being destroyed anf caught in the forests of that land. Kara was next to fall, taken to help preserve the route back to Kul Rullak and the homelands. In the homelands themselves, taxes were lowered and amenities built to reward those who had not come on the great expedition for their services and ensure they did not grow restless as their chieftains were so far away.
A treaty was then signed with the undead, for the Dragon-folk deemed that if the dead were to wander the desert, it was not for now their concern. Arabic armies were sighted around the north of Nekehara, prompting some alarm; but the walls of Kenehara are vast, and mixing the mason-work of the ancients with the stalwart Dragon-folk should hopefully yield victory in the event of a siege. A ship was built and sent north to scout out the lands of Tilea and the Border Princes; naval domination of the Tilean Sea could give the Dragon-folk access to rich new provinces in the Badlands, Tilea, and even as far away as Estalia...
