Flash Fantasy: The Legend of MiddleEarthenTown
by Joseph Cameron
Smoke wafted from Grimwald the Wizard’s meerschaum pipe, and
Bordabor the dwarf ran a finger down the razor edge of his battle-axe.
Twinkle-Toes the Halfling snuck from the shadows and snatched a
steaming leg of mutton from a table in the Inn, but a cloaked stranger
sitting in the corner saw him. The smoke from Grimwald’s pipe
made Morken, the invisible evil priest of Bogdrom, cough, and
Lothlalathol the Elf brushed his blonde hair aside and shot Morken with
an arrow before Morken could cast the spell of Doomnation that would
cause all meerschaum pipes to forever vanish from MiddleEarthenTown.
