Horrors of Village Primal
Mayor Clovis reports to the Skull Coalition that the Clockwork Horrors are making some more changes. They have stopped slaughtering all the animals that come into their territory. Several birds now roost safely in the trees past the trench that marks their land. There has been loud, extended buzzing sounds coming from somewhere behind the tree line. Described by some of the soldiers as sounding like "giant gods-damned wasps buzzing all over the freaking place", it’s happened at all hours of the day and night, all around the perimeter. Finally, Clovis reports that the horrors' messenger has asked for a quote to purchase more land in the hills to the North of the village. Clovis makes this report and sends it to each member of the Skull Coalition seeking their advice. Clovis is aware of the horrors' bad intentions, but he certainly does love the sweet, sweet gold that his dangerous neighbors bring. He believes that in the end, the horrors' wrath won't be directed at him or the village of Yoesville.
Of course, Amicus knows better. His message to the Coalition asks whether the Skull Collectors themselves should have a trick awaiting the horrors when they claim their new lands.
