- But it was for a long time, - Ramkeg has again interfered. - Now anybody a paw does not dare to stir. Hardly that - villains
threaten to fill in with black oil incubators in which small spiders are deduced, or to blow up the trotyl mines put under
platforms for young growth. And about ten years ago they funs for the sake of have brought down weight of salty water in a
foundation ditch in which thousand our females prepared for execution of eggs...
In a word, unfortunate Spajda lives nowadays in a gloom of incessant villainy. However, mass beatings as though have
stopped. A great Octopus together with traitor Kregom and extreme Freckled Skolopendroj operate in relation to spiders by a
principle of one our ancient dictator: "Hjakuse korosadzu ikasadzu" - "do not kill the lackey, but also to live to it do not
- Such is position, - has concluded the story a leader of Makomber.

plateau, looks like a ledged pyramid in one hundred metres in height, it from the squared basalt blocks is combined, on the
