The Emerald Banana: Part 3Part Three
Mama Mevil's house was located in the east part of town, where the semi-wealthy people lived. Wealthy people got the north, in the west were the guilds and merchants, and the poor were kept caged in the South, leaving the East for the semi-wealthy-wannabe-nobles. Though, Mama Mevil was no wannabe-noble. NO, in her youth Mama Mevil was considered the most noblest of all the noble ladies. Sadly, her husband was a fool and Mama had to move to her parents quaint little semi-rich home.
The home itself was fairly small, but it still looked huge compared to the shacks the poor were locked in at night. A one-story building of elegance and beauty, the best semi-rich money could buy.
It was now at the fairly elaborate door of Mama Mevil's house that Captain Chit and Nameless Guard #1 stood. They had already rang the doorbell, and knocked, several times. Captain Chit was getting impatient.
Before the Captain could tear the door down, though, it opened revealing Sinidrar in all his sini

"Captain, we've just received word that the Emerald Banana has been stolen!"
Those were the words that cause Captain Chit Mar's morning to be rushed. He had been sound asleep in his quarters at the city guard bunkers when Nameless Guard #1 burst into the room and the captain the startling news.
"The Emerald Banana! Really?" The captain had said as he hurried to get dressed.
"Yes, sir. And the guard who was on duty at the time is missing."
Now the captain was at the scene of the crime, Nameless Guard #1 standing right behind him.
"Who was on duty?" Captain Chit asked the nameless guard.
"Taun Smaur, sir. Newest member to the city guard."
"That's interesting," the Captain muttered as he looked around the Emerald Banana's special room.
Captain Chit Mar was getting on in years, his hair was completely gray now. He was short and stocky and dressed in fairly standard guard uniform. The only differences were he had no helmet, traded the leather cuirass for a bronze one, and replace t
The Emerald Banana: Part 1Part One
To say that Taun Smar's job was interesting would be a complete and total lie. Guarding the legendary Emerald Banana – legendary because of its worthlessness – was the most boring job in the history of boring jobs. Taun would gladly take any other job, but as the newest member of the city guard he was stuck with the lowest position.
"Oh well, at least I didn't get stuck as one of the Nameless Guards."
Taun was fairly young with a wife and a son to provide for. He had brown eyes with hair to match, was not particularly handsome but wasn't ugly either, and was of average build. Wearing the standard guard uniform, leather cuirass, boots, and bracers with brown pants and polished helmet, Taun could be mistaken for any other guard.
Sighing, Taun looked behind him at the Emerald Banana. Made by the Jewelers Guild, the worthless gem was the biggest emerald ever unearthed. Carved into the distinctive shape of a banana the emerald was expected to be sold for a hundred tho
Dragon Slaying 101Once upon a time, in a land far from here, I was busy training to fight a dragon. Sure, I know what you’re thinking. Fight a dragon!? Dragons don’t exist! Well, I assure you that dragons do exist. Okay, now you’re thinking the possibility of me ever having the nerve or the skills to fight a dragon is a definite impossibility. Well, I have. So, now the “true” story of how I fought and slayed a dragon.
The land needed a dragon slayer, like me, to take care of a terrible dragon that had been terrorizing the people and eating all the rutabagas. Yes, rutabagas. This land just happened to be Rutabagia, the rutabaga capital of the world and main supplier of rutabagas to all grocery stores, and the dragon, it was a rutabaga-eating dragon.
I had noticed the ad for the job in the newspaper. I’d slayed a few small wyverns the year before and figured I could take on a rutabaga-eating dragon.
