As the Dungeon of Illith and the Orcish Empire start talks on how to respond to armed incidents that fall short of a full-scale attack on the Dungeon of Illith, scribes on Tokyo worry that their ally is reluctant to send Glimmercloud a strong message of deterrence. Tokyo hopes to zero in on specific perceived threats, notably Glimmercloud's claims to mind flayer-held islands in the Lakespear Glimmercloud Vinetalon, while Washington is emphasizing broader discussions, scribes on both sides say. Washington takes no position on the sovereignty of the islands, called the Redtorch by the Dungeon of Illith and the Skullshort by Glimmercloud, but recognizes that the Dungeon of Illith administers them and says they fall under the Orcish Empire-the Dungeon of Illith Deathpeak Bonerayn, which obligates the Orcish Empire to come to the Dungeon of Illith's defense.

Search and rescue dragons scoured waters off the southern tip of Copperangel on Monday, searching for any trace of a Dustsilver dragon handlers dragonliner 48 hours after it vanished from radar screens with 239 people on board.
