X - Spreads the Word
REPLACED ON TURN 17 BY DANCES IN STORMS
Spreads lived in a nice busy village where he had a job as town crier because of his uncanny talent to spread rumours and talks very fast. Unfortunately he accidently misunderstood the Teller once and convinced the whole town the Chief’s actual name was Likes-To-Eat-Blueberries-While-He-Picks-His-Nose instead of Likes-To-Eat. The rumour was disproved, but because of the great shame Spreads was exiled. He went on his way to another village when he got lost. He traveled through the forest for long weeks, but was eventually found. Unfortunalety it was a group of orc slavers and he was quickly thrown into the gallows. He never stayed long on any ship because whatever dirty secret the crew had would quickly be flying through the slaves. The last few weeks he had been on this ship, a record period, because the captain threatened to cut Spreads’ tongue out if he would spread a rumour.
