[Incoming Echo message] **~`*`can..!~*~me`&~*…[Static noise]……..AH there ya go. An update on my investigation on this... this bandit. Well to my dismay, it seems the bandit is crafty and must have cheated somehow. Well… there may have been some moments where I have rested my eyes… but I did not fall asleep! I just conclude that he must have magic on his side. About a day and a half in, I closed my eyes only for a second to… hone my senses… yes that’s what I was doing, and before I knew it the ginger cookies were gone! After 2 days of constant vigilance of monitoring my ingenious trap, it seems that I have failed.
But this is only the beginning! I have spent the day investigating and interviewing some of the citizens for clues. Here is what I have so far.

Scary and loud Roegadyn: HEY YOU! YEA YOU, THA LIL FELLA, I HEAR YA THA ONE ASKIN BOUT THA MISSING PASTRIES RIGHT? HWAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH, WELL YA CAN WRITE THIS DOWN AND LET EVERYONE KNOW, WHEN I GET MA HANDS ON WHOEVER TOOK MA SHEPERD’S PIE, IMA GONNA MAKEM REGRET EVER COMIN BETWEEN ME AND MA MEAL! I’LL SHIELD BASH THA THIEF AND TIE EM TO MA TOWERSHIELD AND LOB EM INTO THA DEPTHS OF THE BOWL OF EMBERS! I KNEW I SHOULD OV PUT THE PIE ON THE TOP SHELF.
Grumpy Wandering Minstrel: Hmmph…I’m not going to play anything until I get my kabobs back. Oh… you want to know about my lunch. Well you tell me, I was here helping adventurers as usual. I had my bento right over there next to the fountain. I was looking forward to eating the meat miq’abobs too. They were there one minute and gone in the next, whoever they were they were fast, and sneaky. I try to help people out and this is how they repay me…I don’t even know if I want to stick around in this city.
Cutie Alchemist: I see that you are inquiring about my missing research? Well you see, I was working on a new type of Faerie Apple that would help the… how do you say, the vertically challenged, you should understand.
Anywhoo, weeks of research had gone into the project but for some reason it had the opposite effect. Instead of making the he subjects bigger, the apple seemed to make them smaller. Nothing I couldn’t handle, only a minor setback. I suppose if we could get everyone to eat the apples, we would have the same desired effect…
I think it may have been the amount earth shard I needed to infuse, or was it fire… or maybe I needed some more tree toad legs in the fertilizer. But then again maybe it needed more growth formula beta. I tell you it needs to be beta, alpha just doesn’t have that extra umph, ya know…my friend here thinks it was the growth formula infused coffee beans. What if the growth formula used the earth energy and melded yet kept the properties of the coffee bean…oh why was there coffee, I just like the taste, problem? oh about what happened, well it was stolen… *waves hand*, Hellooo? Did you get all that, and why are you drooling, and what is with that goofy smile?
Word is spreading like wildfire about these incidents, and many of the citizens express their concern. To make sure everyone is heard will go to the Flame Guard to find out what they are up to and what course of action will be taken. I will even take it to the Royal Guard if necessary. I fear that if nothing is done, only chaos will come. I will do that when the sun rises again, for some reason my headaches seem to be getting worse and I am very exhausted. I will keep you all updated on the situation. Uber Tonic out-
