It Happened Again!


Hoggle sent the following report to TMN:

I do not expect you to believe this fabulous tale, but as always, I assure you its one hundred percent true! (Names have been hidden to protect them from prying eyes.)

With the appearance of all these pet snails lately, I found myself once again on the trail of the Great Sea Snail. Much more reclusive than its speedier kin, the GSS can be found in the deepest parts of the ocean. Florescent GCP usually precede the great beast, and it is then with a blast of a sea horn the GSS will rear up and reveal itself.

So there I was... eyeball to eyestalk with my prey, and then it all went black.

I awoke on a strange island that seemed oddly familiar. Yes! It was familiar, how odd! It was Iceton! I was back once again after all these years!


I dusted myself off and saw the dreaded foe of the GSS slither from a pile of rocks. In a war of the invertebrates, it is the squishiest that always prevails. Quickly I ran. As I tried to flee I seemed to pick up a few boar in tow. Aha! The crossing! I had figured out how to navigate it during my last visit here and I just happened to be so prepared again. As with many of these magical crossings, one must take care not to get trapped once you have crossed.


I strolled about and was astonished to see two figures standing about that I didn't recall seeing last time.


They prattled on about nothing too interesting. I felt a little sorry for them that they had only each other for company and their inane banter.


I explored for what seemed like hours meeting various people and creatures. One watery lass seemed to proposition me, but I, preferring the company of more zo-ish females found her charms lacking.


I eventually found my boat on the other side of the island and after drifting for what seemed like an eternity I found myself once again in the Lok'Groton island chain.

Should you make your way there, be sure to bring riches should you wish to likewise return with riches.


P.S. Beware of Greenton.

Calil, Lilly and myself went there yesterday but didn't find out how to cross there. Maybe you could give us a hint how to do so?

I even remembered how to do it without having to research! Always enjoyed Hoggle's tales, now we know he's not a complete fibber!
