With the summer season in full swing, many citizens are focused on finding cool lakes and springs to swim in, shady trees to rest beneath, and holding social gatherings beneath a cool night sky with the stars as their decorations. However, the town of Wehnimer's Landing has had a different agenda over the last week. It seems the town is always under siege of some sort, and this season is no different.
Reports are flooding in that locals are filing complaints of theft with their constable -- theft of gardening tools, wooden planks, construction tools, and farm animals (mostly roltons). In addition, several citizens of the beleaguered city report of an overwhelming stench of rolton droppings and that the hobgoblins occupying the outskirts of the city have revolted! This reporter can hardly imagine how a band of hobgoblins could possibly pose a threat to a town such as Wehnimer's Landing, but the citizens swear that the skies have filled with flying missiles from which they have no defense! We will keep you updated as we hear more.
For now, I leave you with a quote from a local farmer and his daughter. I feel it sums up the situation rather nicely:
Farmer - "I jist don't get it. They built them engines jist tah sling roltons!"
Daughter - "Don't forgit thah poo, pa! Thah poo makes everyone run!"
