For the past few years, the ogre Blogg has demanded monthly tribute from the town of Dundraville. Since the demands were only ale, sheep, and occasional mundane supplies, the town reluctantly complied. The ogre was content to collect his extorted goods and otherwise leave the town alone. However, last month, the tribute changed – in addition to ale and sheep, the ogre demanded gold and building materials!
But now the situation has grown even more grim. The ogre returned this morning two weeks early with yet more demands of ale and worse – townsfolk! Dundraville erupted in protest and denied the ogre’s request. The brute flew into a rage and after injuring many people, hauled two townsfolk forcibly back to his lair – destined for his gullet no doubt!
But amidst the turmoil, a small number of brave (or opportunistic) townsfolk have vowed to confront the ogre and bring him to justice. With the aid of a local hedge witch and the brewers in town, the last batch of ale the ogre took was laced with a mild poison to help incapacitate the brute. Now, as night falls, the ogre should be under the influence of the ale and mild poison… it’s time for you to finish the deed.
