Burdock looks stunning!
Burdock's very special treasures!
"Oh, hello there!" A doe holding a map with a hefty backpack over her shoulder waves at you. "It's nice to meet you! Do you think you could give me directions? I think I read my map wrong..."

Today, I met someone named Chuchi on the road that winds around the outskirts of Olde Foxbury. She had a few of her compatriots with her, including a cockatoo with a wrench and a squid in a jar! They seemed pretty out of place, but not in an off-putting kind of way, and I could tell they were fellow travelers, out on their own adventures. Since they were heading into town, I decided to tag along and they all seemed glad to have my company.
When we got to the town center of Olde Foxbury, I met the rest of Chuchi's group, nearly 30 villagers total; no small party! There were all manner of exotic and interesting folks! I got to talking with some of the builders, all big and burly Beast-types from Dragonsmaw Manor, and while they looked pretty intimidating, they were all kind, generous people and they even built me some sturdy pots for my plants. I met their Herbalist, a quiet Fox in ornate dress, hailing from Tigereye Peak. We compared notes and she gave me some seeds for the road. I talked with their Doctor, an odd critter, all skull and no face, but friendly nonetheless! There was even a strange, wooden Horse-toy type fella. I can't quite explain it, but I couldn't shake the sense of familiarity, like I'd seen it before or knew it from somewhere else, but just couldn't place it. It didn't pay me any mind, and it stayed near the blacksmith's forge, where that cockatoo I mentioned before was hollering away and banging on weapons with its wrench.
It's late in the morning now, and the Explorers are fixing to go out of town again soon. The Warriors are polishing their weapons and armor and the Husbander folks are getting ready to go out into the field and wrangle some animals. I think I'll hang out with Chuchi's group for a little while longer, get to know everyone a bit more, and perhaps in the afternoon I'll hit the road again and continue my own journey. It's been a pleasure meeting these folks, but I can feel the urge to roam rattlin' my little lamb bones!

It has been a convoluted and somewhat dizzying journey, but Quetzal Palace is finally within view. The sun went down ages ago, but the town seems to give off a sort of glow, like moonlight. Or maybe that's actual moonlight. I've got to admit, I'm a tad disoriented.
Oh, I think I see someone who can direct me. I'll have to write more later.

Burdock’s Travel Journal

So that was vertigo! That is, I now know just how that feels like, the whole icky thing. It was a mite bit scary, kicking in up in the clouds like that, but everything worked out peachy. Hestia took me to the local clinic, and a very energetic doctor in training got me patched up in a snap. I didn’t catch their name, they scampered right off to the next patient, but Hestia stuck with me and showed me out of the chaos.
Hestia, that is, is a lovely bright moth who I met right outside of the town proper. It was a bit of fortune, I think, because she calls herself a homebody. I don’t think she could quite get her head around my gardening on the go, but then again, I don’t know how anyone stays in one place for so long. Hestia is a fellow herbalist, and kindly invited me to stay at her home. She was happy to trade seeds, and I stocked up on an array of flying plants.
Emrin likes it here, I think. Lots of flying critters. Maybe I can come back soon.
