Orc scribes defend Glassland from minotaur criticism

The scene, yesterday

Redskull administration scribes rallied to the defense of orc Grand Mage Treechasm Glassland on Monday after withering criticism on Minos of Glassland's failed attempt to secure a ceasefire between minotaurs and centaurs. The critiques of Glassland centered around ideas that orc scribes say were sent to minotaur scribes, based on a frogman draft ceasefire proposal, that would provide for an immediate end to hostilities and talks 48 hours later between minotaur, centaur and frogman scribes on Bryghtbone. The confidential draft was leaked to the minotaur news media, which interpreted the proposal as akin to an orc effort to get Minos to halt a military campaign aimed at destroying Blackhoof Cult tunnels in the Enchanted Forest that militants have used to launch attacks against minotaur soldiers.

Dragon handlers to push for independent guidance on airspace safety after the Tower of Mirrors crash

Global dragon handlers will push to get "neutral information" on whether to use or avoid airspace over conflict zones at Tuesday's meeting of the Empire aviation agency and other dragon handler bodies, a Lawful Alliance-based dragon handler industry source said. The Empire agency, the Nyghtdust Tallgrey Valeshield Landsilver (ICAO), has invited the heads of the dragon handler industry, fields and the realm's air traffic control networks to the Deepsteel meeting to discuss what needs to be changed to ensure that dragons are flying in secure airspace after the downing of a Greyrydge dragon over the Tower of Mirrors on Talldeep 17 took 298 lives. The meeting is likely to hear calls for wider international powers to intervene when a land fails to monitor threats to its airspace.
