Chickako Archivists Still Following Leads
Following up on a story first reported on September 14th,
the Chickako branch of the Archivists are still examining leads
relating to theft of the centerpiece of their main altar.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, one senior member
indicated there have been multiple reliable pieces of information that
indicate that a very unique plate from the centerpiece was found in
Rokfurd on September 20th and part of a covering wrap was found in
Madson on Oct 3rd.
Local authorities in Rokfurd and Madson have been aiding
in the investigation, although no concrete leads have surfaced.
The Archivists are still hopeful that their centerpiece
will be returned in good order.
Biretrem Theater Struggles with 'Heavy' Ballerina
Mewakekee’s Biretrem Theater was embroiled in a
high-profile row on Thursday with a sugar loving ballerina it says is
too heavy for ballet partners to lift.
Frerilin Ocila, one of Mewakekee’s best-known ballerinas,
says the theater contacted her 12 hours before she was due to perform
last week telling her not to turn up.
She told local reporters on Thursday she had been sacked.
But the prestigious theater denies dismissing her. It says
it has offered her a new contract but cannot find her a partner for
ballets which require lifting.
"None of the male soloists at the Biretrem Theater agrees
to dance with her, particularly in her current physical state,"
Biretrem Theater Kaerac Aberaron said.
Ocila, who is taller than most ballerinas, admits being
partial to ice cream. "I love ice cream
so much that I can't imagine life without it," she said in at a recent
Recent Raids Reducing Trade Between Oshkosh and Greebai
Some of the normally peaceful herdsmen of the island north
east of Oshkosh have suddenly turned to banditry. The bandits
raid the trade route between Oshkosh and Greebai running along the
western shore of Lake Oshkosh.
The rouges appear out of the silt of the surrounding marsh
riding round, sail powered, levitating platforms. Once on the
oad, they attack the caravans and then disappear back to into the marsh
with their booty and slaves.
The raids have been happening for about 2 years now, but
have recently become more frequent, more audacious and more
violent. The raiders don’t seem the care what losses they incur
Reports from surviving caravans claim that the raids are
usually led by lizard men who command human and animal followers to do
their bidding. Strangely enough, caravan guards captured in
previous raids are joining the raiders and helping them raid other
caravans. Unfortunately, the raiders fight to the death, so no
prisoners have thus far been taken for interrogation.
City razes building by mistake -- again
The city of Chicako is being accused for at least
the second time this year of tearing down a building by mistake — but
this time, city officials seem somewhat more willing to take the blame.
Woegord Kigoli filed a notice of claim against the city in
late August, stating that his five-stagon stable at 65 Clifford Ave.
was erroneously demolished in May, and with it tools and riding
implements estimated to be worth about 2,822 domars. The stable itself
has a replacement value of roughly 7,560 domars, according to the claim.
Kigoli could not be reached for comment.
The intended target, a vacant carriage house believed to
be at 55 Clifford Ave., was easy to miss, said Community Development
Commissioner Linda Stango. For one thing, it was obscured by a house.
For another, it wasn’t actually on Clifford Avenue. “When you’re
looking for a Clifford Avenue address, you look for something on
Clifford Avenue,” Stango said.
Bran "Scan" Tulgrim, beloved friend of Czin Kzanti, passed on during a
particularly brutal encounter with an “unfriendly” robot in the early
hours of Oct 9, 299. Bran, not so beloved friend of Dunkin-Dee
Riddlefork, was trying to escape from a storage room that he and
Dunkin-Dee were hiding in. The human became a laser shish kabob
when he moved into the line of sight of a robot they recently
irritated. Unfortunately, attempting to feign death did not stop
its arrival; Bran passed on shortly thereafter. When asked why he
seemed to get away unharmed, Dunkin said he wasn’t too sure about that,
but he one sure that one less human in the world can only make it
