    Icky has become somewhat discouraged with Pitmuck's suffering local economy, and with her hope that goblins might wish to become dedicated and successful merchants. Since it is true that goblins are rather... well, "challenged" at accounting (not to mention organization and PR skills) she is wondering if her dream of turning Pitmuck into a center of wildly profitable corporate activity may have been too ambitious.

    Icky welcomes feedback from the other goblins. If they are not particularly dedicated to becoming professional merchants, she will understand and quietly accept the resignation of any vendors. In the event the vendors decide to depart, she will turn the Pitmuck Goblin Emporium into a friendly public gathering place with gardens, cooking and picnic areas, and perhaps keep a homeless gypsy or two around to sell a few discounted goods as they become available.

    Again, Icky will welcome any feedback, and will plan for the future according to what appears to be best for the goblins' beloved island of Pitmuck.

    Hugs and wabes from Icky... :grouphug:

    A nice park where goblins and other folks can enjoy picnics and stop and smell the flowers. :)

    Icky searched frantically through the chests in the upstairs bedroom, looking for some paper to write on. She breathed a sigh of relief when she found some, and sat down to draw (or scribble) the pictures flashing through her mind. Yes, a garden... a natural setting free of most of the trappings of human civilization -- except for a small oven, of course, and a few items to make any visitors more comfortable. It would be a picnic garden. Luann would not like it, of course, but Luann could live in town if she wished. Icky herself would be content with her old bedroll -- the one she used so very long ago when she slept beneath an apple tree at the Pitmuck Deli.

    "Miz Lucy..." whispered Icky. She ran downstairs into the yard, then walked slowly over to the grave. "Mess gonna keep yoos here foreber, Miz Lucy," she said. "Foreber... or till itz timez fer mees ta joins yoos..."

    The vendor called "Old Gypsy" provides free food and drink. The vendor called "Wannabe Gypsy" sells odds and ends on the cheap. :)

    And Icky thinks about Miz Lucy every day... :)

    Edit: "Wannabe Gypsy" was fired recently. Wasn't doing a very good job.

    Raising the dead is always dangerous or so I hear. Sometimes the person you bring back isn't the same one who departed.

    Ashlynn might know... It's just a rumor, but I've heard that the spot where she placed her house was once a pet cemetery. :eyes:

    It is a shrine to the virtue of sobriety which I am a priestess of. It is a very important virtue.
