Lore[ | ]

"Many places in many worlds have seasons of reflection. Times when our focus rests not on the larger struggles in our lives, but on the small, sustaining bits of light that carry us through our days. The people who love us. The moments that nourish us. The beauty of nature. And, of course, the rams."
~ From the Dauntless website

"For the ram-loving denizens of Ramsgate, Ramsgiving is a special time of reflection, gratitude, and good cheer. City folk enjoy celebrating this season by dressing up as rams and indulging in all kinds of ovine-themed festivities."
~ From the Dauntless website

"From city name to local currency, Ramsgate is a city that truly embodies its eponym, the ram. Each year, as the weather cools and winter approaches, residents of the ram-loving city reflect upon all of the things they are thankful for. This light-hearted and cheery season has city folk dressing up as their favourite woolly mammal and enjoying all manner of rambunctious festivities."

These abhorrent creatures have gotten wind of a special buried treasure in the sandy Hunting Grounds of Conundrum Rocks. They are furiously digging as they search for the key to thawing their King Gruk and restoring their reprehensible leader to power."
