The shining sun of summer afternoon shed its light upon mantis, orc and black dragon, standing near the main gate of the Capital of HeroesLands. All three wore light summer cloaks, embroidered with gold, what indicated their belonging to Magisters of those Lands. As you have probably figured out, these were sir Gorbik, the shortish orc – director of the project http://www.heroesportal.net/ and also the supreme magister of HeroesLands, sir Sombreus, the big, green mantis-shapeshifter, who liked to turn into a Scorpicore while travelling in HeroesLands 3 – head designer of HeroesPortal and the head of Merchants' Guild, and sir Pool, the young black dragon – main programmer of HeroesPortal and the leader of clan "MIB". They stood, having risen their heads up, and looked on huge gate of the Capital.
The orc broke the silence. "We should renovate the colouration of the gates – it's almost faded!" – thoughtfully said Gorbik. Right behind his back the mantis by a hardly noticeable move of one of his paws passed the scrool, that beared the handmade sketch of the new gate of the Captial on it, to the black dragon. The dragon stopped gazing on majestic construction of the gate, examined the scroll, smiled, and by casting a short spell changed the colouring of the gate! So the look of the main page of our portal http://www.heroesportal.net/ has been renovated, and now the main gate seems to be even more Heroic:)
- "Well, this is better! Thank you, friends! Let's pass through – we are being waited inside!" – said the orc. But before they succeeded to make a single step, a huge grey werewolf, somersaulting in the air, landed near them and turned into sir shay tan. "Damn it...shay tan!" – cursed the mantis on Old Mantisese. – "Those youngsters always hurry somewhere." The werewolf stood up on his back paws, slightly bowed to them as a sign of excuse and, having barked something unclear, continued on common language: - "Forgive me, noble Sirs! I'm in a hurry – the battle is about to begin! The "Royal Games" have just ended, and after you, sir Gorbik, and lady Ornate have added all prizes, that were earned in those games, to the players, I decided to visit the Capital and buy some provisions and some new weapons in order to compete with this proud "Order of Paladins". I think you heard about the war that has just begun, do you? It involves not only HeroesLands 3, but also HeroesLands 4! Sir Maverick is the one who wages this war on Order of Paladins."
While hearing this long monologue, the orc's eyebrows comically crept up. - "Really? And who participates in this war or yours?"
The werewolf was a well brought up beast and so he started to enumerate the pairs of duelists, carefully bending his fingers: "Maverick/vadim99, shay tan/Horot, SkyWalker/Feeria, Yokozun/Crazy Kolobok, lowalex/Twilight Knight, Lazar/White, Havr/Vicont, Defender/ScorpionSP, Bakster/VAN, and maybe some more, whom I forgot. By the way, sir – before the "Royal Games" in HeroesLands 3 were declared, lady Ornate didn't add the prizes for the past "Landless Tourney", "Merchants' Gulid Tourney" and "General Tourney". She urgently left the Lands, because she had to visit the monastery, where the highest levels of magic are being taught to her, and the last thing I remember was the spell that she casted, with the word "session" being the last, disappearing in the clouds of smoke, spreading in the halls of tavern."
The Orc smiled after he heared the question. – "Yes, sir, I personally distrubuted all the prizes for those tourneys! So, if you have any claims or questions about those tourneys, it's better to write me a letter and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Lady Ornate has already returned to the Lands and even had time to add all prizes for "Royal Games", and I did the same in HeroesLands 4. By the way, the new round of tourneys in HeroesLands 3 and 4 has been opened, so tell everyone that if they want to get the treasures of unconquered lands, they should visit the http://www.heroesportal.net/land and pick up the task, that the Magistrate gave for these tourneys".
The werewolf gladly wagged and said: - "These are great news indeed, sir! But let me leave you – the war cannot wait, and yet it is so tempting to capture those unconquered lands, that are being drawn in those "Landless Tourney", "Merchants' Guild Tourney" and "General Tourney". Then the werewolf somersaulted again and, standing on all four laps, ran towards the forest. Gorbik looked at Sombreus and Pool and said to them: "Well, let's go to the Capital at last, we have plenty to do there yet." And all three turned and went to the Capital of HeroesLands.
While entering the city, the trio unexpectedly met the paladin – magister Logan Peacekeeper, that has just returned to the Capital after a short vacation, that he spent in isolated cabin in the field. The three magisters were peased to meet their colleague, and all four went to the tavern in order to celebrate the ending of "Royal Games". While passing near them, you could hear how sir Logan Peacekeeper told the shortish orc, that the quantity of maps of unconquered lands now makes up 1580 and that the current CH tourneys will end soon and the new ones will be opened shortly, and Pool spoke about the elections to the council of the Knights of the Round Table, the new three Clans, emerged in HeroesLands, and about the "Storage" of HeroesPortal, that was considerably replenished thanks to the great work of new magister – sir Poly-Master, and about many other interesting things.
