    Before death came,
    The liars were made to feast
    upon the hands of the thieves,
    And the thieves were made to ingest
    the tongues of their liar brothers,
    And we praised the Master Builder for his judgements.

    Before death came,

    The liars were made to feast

    And the thieves were made to ingest
    The tongues of their liar brothers,
    And the thieves did complain most pitious
    Though the liars had little to say.

    And the Builder said, "With thine hammer
    Thou shalt build and thou shalt protect,
    Yet also with thine hammer, thou shalt
    Play Croquet." And we praised the
    Master Builder for his wisdom!

    If Leist was a lost Hammerite resource colony...(Not really on subject but....)

    Sees He you
    Takes He you
    Comes you back never
    -birchbark scroll found outside the walls of the colony Leist

    Sees we Him in the Old Wood

    Sees He us on the old plain

    Sees we the manfoolsies slaughter the Old Wood
    and burn the old plain.

    Goes we both to the mansies and tears we them from their hammers and saws and torches---

    and grows we us goodsie wood from theys rootsie feet.

    -birchbark scroll found near an abandoned Pagan camp

    The Hammer did not prevail that day, ney-
    it fell from its place to the ground and lay there where feet tread
    But all was not a loss, for the Good Brother did take the seal from the ground and took it with him the docks of Leist, and he hid the seal beneath the sand and gave us back Leist.
    -Sermon on the Recovery of the colony Leist

    ...the colony was therefore lost on the grounds of lack of proper direction and therefore a gained acute weakness to its defence, not mythical beasts from the forests that surround us...
    -Study on Conquest: Vol 3---Loss of Leist

    We had no choice in its loss; it was too close to the enemies of the Baron's lands. Had we kept those (entities) at bay, we would have risked the proper end of Leist presuming itself upon the Old City. We had not forseen, however, the absorbtion of Duba into this.
    -Keeper Mallarn

    From the evidence gathered by mapping and exploration parties, it can be concluded that the colony was taken by surprise and destroyed in one day by unknown attackers. The entire colony, with a population of 36 standing garrison defenders, 1 captain, and 3 administration members, was taken with the intent of being plundered and burned with all its inhabitants slain. Although no bodies where found and the administrator, who was in an understandibly traumatized condition, presented the attackers as the followers of the Trickster (whose existance is by no way maintained by the council), the council cannot force these factors "in-line" into their explanation and therefore dismisses them as irrelevant to the main case. The massive hoardings found "in plain sight" by the mappers despite the attackers status as looters is irrelevent as time was a factor. The presumed location of raiders in the area, which where recorded by watchlogs as being remote to the colony of Leist, but not to her sister Duba, is and are declared inaccurate by this council. The lack of remains of raider camps is irrelevant. Therefore, the taking of the Colony of Leist is presumed and rested to be the work of raiders who have made there presence known several times in points of shortages.

    There's a taffer called Garrett from the City,
    Whence that place can be nice, but most shitty,
    Knew this chick called Victoria,
    Whose conversation could bore ya',
    Tho' he fucked her because she was pretty.

    BJ: You've completely ignored the syllable pattern for limericks, and "Whence that place can be nice, but most shitty," doesn't even make sense.

    As Garrett lay bound by the tricksters vines after they had left, taking his eye with them, he drifted in and out of consciousness...

    Two Keepers came via secret ways and severed the vines

    'Looks bad ... he might not make it' said keeper Oscagolman

    We shouted to the thief "Taffer"
    We yelled "come down from there"
    But he stood up here
    on those two boxes
    and he felt no fear.
