Elvis has left the building
Someone pounding at the gate of the city, demanding to come in? A ghostly carriage with the king's crest on it barrelling down the road, out the door and into the fog? Rumours abound that strange visions have been seen, and not just by one or two people. What next?
During late evening and night, the gate to the city is usually closed. But on one occasion, it's opened up and the carriage that was seen to leave the city returns. But it returns empty. Those who witnessed the return swear there was a dwarven man there, but surely that must have been some sort of crazy effect of the fog and the darkness of night?
