Saloondrian Short Stories, by Blake Propach
Hatbrim Council Meeting by Licheng Mai
So begins the partial transcription of the two thousand, four hundred, seventy-seventh congress of the Principality of Saloondria held in the council chambers of Hatbrim. Transcribed by Sir Michael of Kurodia.
HM (Headmaster) Johannes Killwhales: Order please. Settle into your seats. We have multiple points of discussion scheduled for this meeting. Grievances brought forth by Cantsee the Eyeless are up first. Councilman Cantsee, you have the floor.
So ends the partial transcript. It is noted by stenographer Sir Michael of Kurodia that no further progress toward any council goals were made throughout the remainder of this meeting. It devolved into further chaos, wherein CM Cantsee was forcibly removed, but was later reported to have not believed he had exited the council chambers, as he did not witness the act. Instead, he continued his debate with local fishermen that evening and into the night, before dying of exhaustion the following morning. It was discovered in autopsy that he had not consumed a single drop of water over the course of his final week, presumably no longer believing such a thing existed.
