Odd Folk of Green Pit

Today is your last chance to buy the Into the Odd PDF before it's removed from the Lost Pages store. It will come back up once we work out a solution to crippling new tax laws, but if you were planning on picking it up in the new year, I'd do so now just to be sure.

In the mean time, there's this little place in Bastion.

Green Pit is:
- A huge park full of dead trees, overgrown weed, and a rampant population of talking Snakes
- A haven for Stinkers, a group that reject city life and worship this rare patch of nature. 
- Overlooked by Zip Tower, an old watchtower converted into fashionable coffee-bar.

Random Encounters
1: Sephie Biter (7hp, STR 12) - Voluptuous woman with a toad-like face. Joined the Stinkers after a big fued with Annie Ganache. Wants to live a wild life free of responsibility. Always has another Stinker in tow. 
2: Prince Green (4hp, WIL 15) - Ruggedly handsome. Adored by the other Stinkers and used to getting his own way. Knows that Scarlett has a thing for him, and leads her on for fun. Wants to add to his hidden jewelry collection. Followed by d6 Stinkers. 
3: "Oboe" Fubb (7hp, WIL 6) - Pale, skinny, old man. Plays Oboe at Zip Tower occasionally, but lives with the Stinkers. Feels torn between the two worlds. Wants to get more of his city friends to join the Stinkers. Very close with Scarlett and supports her however possible.

7: Stave Snake - (STR 5, DEX 15, WIL 8, 4hp, d4 Bite, lose d8 STR on Critical Damage). White. Always fully straight, gliding forwards through some force. Speaks telepathically wants to trick people into doing stupid things. Attacks those that appear too smart for their tricks.
