1. Bree-land News - Special Edition
The floor of the local inn, The Prancing Pony, collapsed last night due to 'extreme structural pressure' according to Bree Building Inspector, Cob Brownlock, brother to Nob, Ostler of the establishment owned by Barliman Butterbur.
When asked what precipitated the collapse, Cob said, "'Twere them twenty-four dancing dwarves! Ya can't have twenty-four of 'em all dancing at the same time, in the same space. Some of 'em were climbing on top of each other. Putting stress on the building."
Barliman Butterbur himself was found under the rubble, having gone to the wine cellar for a patron.
