All hands are needed to travel to Gotham--er, to travel to OSTGARDR-- to play the foole for the king's Tax Collectors, to disport themselves in foolish pastimes and games (including a Foolish Archery Shoot; it will be safe--we're fools, not idiots 8), to tell and hear foolish tales and songs, and to partake of a Foolish Feast in which nothing is as it appears.

Crown Province of Ostgardr (Huntington, New York)
