Joy Killed the Duke
The Duke is dead. She ran away.
The dead weather didn’t ease her travels, the fuzz deprived her sight. The ground split open and she couldn’t escape from falling down the hole. While reaching for nirvana she found herself stuck in dirty fences.
A desperate scream for help attracted three strangers, three souls struggling for same rescue. They came from distant lands, but wore the same white stripes. They approached and she couldn’t help but speak of the tale of the Duke, his iron fisted reign and the Meatbodies, and their vengeance to come after the Dukes conqueror.
This assembly of strangers, not held back by cowardice, bravely made plans to stand their ground. They hatched a plan: “Let’s make music as loud as we can, with lyrics most foul!”, the redbearded shouted. “The Meatbodies will not stand the fiery sounds and will certainly lose the fight. You will hit the way they can’t hurt you!”.
Times later people wondered how she managed to fulfill her duty. They could firmly say: Joy Killed the Duke.

What adventures are awaiting them and can they keep the Meatbodies at bay in the near future?
