This happens to each of you:
There you were, minding your own business, really. It was late in the day and you had just settled down to dinner when you heard someone pound loudly at your door. When you trudge to the door, grumbling, and throw it open you see a big, burly minotaur. You stare up his large nostrils and barely register his black leather pants, simple white peasants shirt and well-worn walking stick. Before you have a chance to react he thusts a letter into your hand, backs up two steps, and raps his staff into the ground twice in sharp succession. He disappears unceremoniously without so much as a poof of smoke or a bang leaving you asking the age old question…
What the hell?!
With mounting panic you realize that the letter has the royal seal. You peel back the slightly beaten envelope and find this letter (feel free to open the file to see the pretty version):
Dear Citizen of Fairwind,
