As the night progressed, nothing much was heard. The villagers got their first good night of sleep in a while. When they gathered in the square the next morning however, the tranquility was shattered. One of their number was missing - Ryven, the ever-popular muffin man, was not to be seen. A quick examination of his sleeping areas showed nothing and when the villagers entered the bakery they could smell something burning.
Afraid to look, their morbid curiousity drove them onwards and when they opened up the ovens, the shredded and charred body of Ryven was found. The shadowy creatures had obviously caught him preparing his morning bake and taken full advantage of it. During their search, the villagers had explored every facet of Ryven's business and home and found nothing untoward. He had obviously been a Peasant.
The villagers, dismayed by their lack of breakfast muffins, started to argue amongst themselves over who was to blame. Who shall pay the ultimate price?
