Trouble's Brewing

Deep within the macabre wetland of the Haunted Woods, hidden by the swamp gases and crooked trees shrouded in tangles of spongy moss, there was a foreboding abode that stood on the muddy river bank. Composed of rotten-looking shambles of wood, it looked like the slightest gust of wind could knock the entire residence on its side. But it was the enigmatic ixi that called this dingy shack home that really gave rise to the mysteries.

Penny walked up to the cafe and breathed a sigh of relief. She giggled as the sigh took the form of steam. She trotted in and shut the door firmly behind her. “Not used to Terror Mountain weather, eh?” the Kougra behind the counter asked. “Definitely not,” Penny replied, unwinding her scarf and setting it on a table with her hat. “I thought it would be a nice break from the summer heat and it was…for about ten minutes.” “Well, you’re welcome to warm up in here as long as you’d like.
