Heart of Corruption Beats!

Earlier this week, the Council of Five held an emergency community meeting to announce what they know about the Heart of Corruption, the massive beating heart that rests within the jungles of Kumala. If the citizens recall, it has erupted before, sending waves of undead to nearby towns and causing general havoc. Concerned commanders have sent massive numbers of troops to the area despite being warned not to, and citizens are bracing for more attacks from unearthly monsters.

Starting the meeting, Geomancer Herrolf attempted to calm the waiting crowd. "Citizens," he started "you must understand that we have dealt with this before and learned much in the process. Do not worry yourselves, but be prepared.

Stock up on dried goods and store water, but do not panic. The Heart of Corruption has only begun to... " Before he could finish, a guard slid quietly behind Herrolf, whispered into his ear and the pair ran off the stage, leaving the crowd dumbfounded.

There are more reports coming in by the hour, but we should continue to heed the Geomancer's advice and remain calm. Let your commanders march if willing, but lock down your towns and stay in contact with your neighbors. 

Please stay on alert and trust no one that you do not know as well as possible, for now even honest merchants appear to be falling under the monster's chaotic influence!

Those screenshots are very impressive and they look much better as ships.
Let us hope that it beats long enough to allow most people to get some units to the temples.
I often think that the Heart was game designed to help rid Elgea of excess diplomatic units!

It has now officially beat long enough for all races, even in the farthest reaches of broken lands, to reach Audrey with T2 scouts or spies (or messengers of course). Plus basically an extra day which is nice since people won't be awake or at home when Audrey first wakes.   

Now lets hope it actually stops
