Sample text

Adventurers sometimes find them, although nobody has ever discovered what they do. And since you can never take them off once you put them on, you might as well wear this one. And now, since there is nothing more up here on the mountain (not even another bear) and no way down except the way you came, you'd better go back to the Village at 4 and decide on some other course of action. 44 Something funny is happening.
