The Saucepan Man has been trapped in the Barrow!
Sting The Big Fight

On Day 6, the delegates awoke to a dreadful commotion in the village square. Venturing forth from their huts, they witnessed the closing stages of a desperate battle. A great Bear was locked in mortal combat with a huge black Wolf. The Bear, his fur matted with blood, had the Wolf gripped between his powerful arms. The Wolf, battered and bruised, was struggling and howling and attempting to twist his great head round to lock his jaws onto the Bear. Eventually, just as the last of his life was being squeezed from his body, the Wolf succeeded in sinking his cruel black fangs deep into the Bear’s throat. Both beasts were mortally wounded, yet still they struggled on. Finally, exhausted and near death, both collapsed entangled in a deadly embrace. They lay there for a while, panting hoarsely, before each breathed his last and one more assumed his human form.

Boromir88 had not come from Laketown and his geography had actually been pretty good. He had been a Shapeshifter, a descendant of Beorn, and had been sent to Woodgard by Radagast to aid the delegates in their struggle against the Wolves.

Nogrod, a fierce black-fanged Werewolf, had assumed the identity of the delegate from the Witch-burner’s village, though he had nevertheless remained ready and willing to form a theory to suit his feelings whatever the facts.

Both, however, now lay dead.

The Sixth Wizard

Day 6 has begun and the game continues. Time to start talking again.
Do you mind? I'm busy doing the fishstick. It's a very delicate state of mind!
