Stormstead Shipbuilding Efforts Befouled Again!

Word has it, something afoul ran the ship down yonder! AGAIN! As if fire ants weren’t bad enough news, now the whole blasted thing’s covered in strange glowing vines! These are dire times, and I’d say I’d give my best walking stick to have a guv’ner again. Someone to handle all this mess. Could been me in the last election, but none you voted for ol’ Pester!

Ship Sabotage-1

Wolves Attacking Ship!

But that’s just fine. I know when I’m not wanted. I’ll just sit here, cursing that blasted rhyming satyr and watch the other village slags go by. Speaking of things running amuck, saw me an odd thing during when that ship had its trouble. Saw some of the villagers, some of the guards even, get all up and arms to charge those folks giving us the business. Didn’t make it far though, before some strange funny little men with leaves n’ twigs in their beards give chase. Routed the villagers, they did. Shame, because we’d prolly be able to put an end to that nonsense had things gone another way.

Remind me again why I’m here in the village? Ah, right, because it beats the alternatives of joining a cult, crazy voodoo natives, and whatever’s going on with them water folk. Well, Stormstead ain’t no stranger to hard times. We’ve been through many, probably them all, yes sir! No matter how many times this place burns down to the ground, we always build it up again. Can’t say I’ve kept track how often that’s happened, but it’s been a whole heck of a lot.

Now I’ve got to ask myself a question. Out of all the attempts folks tried to get us to leave, why they sabotaging the one thing that can make us done get outta here?

Ship Progress Sabotage!

The efforts of Stormstead citizens to complete their ship have met up with sabotage once again.  Though not serious in nature, once again there are setbacks to delay ship completion.  These setbacks sorely felt as more time and energies must be devoted to clean up the mess and gather more supplies.  

Hand Crafted’s monthly work party met at the ship on Wednesday night to find that the tools had been scattered and the buckets of pitch poured into the soil.   Stormstead was fortunate in the volunteers that appeared for they were able to patiently comb the waters and the depths of the bog to retrieve the tools which of themselves would have been a most serious loss.

But that was not to be all.  On Friday morning a foul and cloying stench circled the ship and even the mysts seemed to hang heavy.  Closer inspection showed a mess of eggs and other organic matter coated the framework of the vessel and a scourge of fire ants which had evidently been attracted to the food source.

Security has been heightened but information is being sought.   The Shipwright Langston has been unavailable.   This second act against the ship confirming the believe that someone or something is wishing to delay ship’s progress or eliminate it altogether.   The damage thus far has been relatively light and easily repairable.  But what comes next?  We must be vigilant.  Who would wish to see the ship’s efforts fail?  Who would benefit from such an act?  The questions continue to circle.

All villagers are asked to stay alert.  Those that are able asked to guard and watch the ship when they can.  Report any strange occurrences or happenings to the Stormstead Council.
