Legendorama 5: Monday Afternoon Preparations

Christopher the cook killed one of the hens, and sweated over the cooking pot. The party enjoyed a meal of stewed chicken, cooked in a vegetable broth that consisted of herbs plucked by the river, some pickled veg from one of the pickle jars, and a portion of hard tack. Gilbert the yeoman returned from scouting the land and reported that the river turns towards the east just a little way beyond where they have stopped, and the heath continues…

Our knight, Sir Richard Radclyffe by name, is…

And I have to move those balls every day. If I don’t move every ball I…
