    Martin Lacey, scratched his head, as he worked on writing a particularly challenging passage in his latest edition of A GUIDE TO THE MYTHICAL BIRDS AND BEASTS OF BRITAIN. As an elder scholar of Lycaeum, he was one of the foremost authority on the topic of legendary creatures. He had spent a lifetime with his nose buried in scrolls dealing with the unusual to the fantastic. His expertise lied in distinguishing works of fiction from accounts likely to be rooted in some form of reality. As Britain and her cities expanded, many of her other worldly inhabitants were either forced deeper into the woods or disappeared completely. Through his work, Lacey hoped to highlight this, often overlooked, cost of progress.

    His current source of frustration dealt with the exact nature of a creature named Eostre. While some of the sources described her as one of the fair folks, others hinted towards a more divine interpretation. Then, there was the case of the lack of information related to the description of a silver dragon’s egg in a previous chapter. For some reason, this day, the lack of details was weighing down heavily. Looking out at the setting sun from the small window on his right, he sighed,

    Would it not be wonderful to prove the existence of some of these creatures?

    Then, laughing at himself,

    You are going senile, Lacey. These old bones barely oblige to allow you to move around the confines of the Lycaeum. How do you propose to go on a real adventure?

    But.. why do I need to be the one going on an adventure? Perhaps, I can recruit a strapping youngster to take up the quest! Hmmmm…. Yes, that could work!

    Meet Lacey on April 24th at the First Bank of West Britain to help him find the answers he searches for.

    Note: You will have at least a week to do the event and it can be started at any time. So, don’t miss any real life egg hunting events because of it.
