    Governor Lord Gareth of New Magincia Proudly Presents
    In Association with Former Governor Lady CaT of Yew
    "Name The Roads Contest"

    Earlier in the week I overheard Bret, one of our local Councilmen giving directions to a visiting fisherman. He was looking for a Fishery Stall to purchase some Bluegill Sunfish to fill their quota since they came up a bit short this week. The fisherman said his ship was bombarded by Ancient Sea Plant like creatures…Anyway, 'tis a dull story.

    Once the fisherman was done telling his story and Bret did the whole shocked and amazed he turned and pointed down the road and began giving the fisherman directions. “Go down Sandy road and then turn on Sandy road. Follow Sandy road until you come to Sandy road. I think it’s the second or third Sandy road off Sandy road, then turn right onto Sandy road and take that down to Sandy road. Now Sandy road becomes Sandy road so if you come to Sandy road then you’ve gone too far because it’s right after Sandy road on your left hand side.”

    Thanks to the now presumed lost and soon to be declared missing visiting man fisher we are now aware of a Major Public Safety Issue on the roads of our Great Prideful City! But Fear Not! For I, your Faithfully Serving and Proud Governor, has come up with a solution to solve this issue!

    There will be multiple winners, unless you assassinate them all by drinking poison and then peeing on them.
