Oh me oh my, what a busy week I’ve had. First little Dimwit started teething, then on Wands Day we were attacked by demons, and just yesterday the King fell into the lake! What a laugh we had, he was soaked to the bone, and his crown was terribly askew when he climbed out. But he took it all in good humor and only imprisoned a few of the servant boys over the mistake. In his youth we’d all have been fed to dragons, but I suppose age does mellow oneself to a degree.
On a side note, I should like to say that some kinds of demons, while extremely unpleasant and really rather rude, are surprisingly easy to subdue. I had everything I needed in the room, and have made a note of the method on a scroll, which I have deposited in a cave for safe keeping. I am confident that it shall remain there, kept safe lest I forget how I did it in my autumn years. Unfortunately I fear that my autumn years are closer than I would like, so in fear that I might forget where the cave itself is located, this should jog my memory:
Daring adventurers each have to attack lonesome Fensteron,
Stealing nothing, in a trivial nuisance, unmasking our monsters.
Ha, I should very much like to see some lowly adventurer try to figure that one out!
Well, Dimwit is crying again, so I must return to my duty, but I do very much look forward to next week’s Servant Toss. I believe the catapult has been primed to fire farther than ever! What a lark it all is.
scroll, which detailed the exorcism process was hidden in the
Flathead Mountains (the first letters of each of the words in the
italic section above, reading from right to left, hid the name), and
would not be seen again until the Great Monster
Uprising when it was obtained and used by GUE Tech to banish some
demonic influences from their great institution.
