Legend has it that a swashbucklin’, hornswagglin’, all-around-stinkin’ buccaneer called Gnome-Beard hath pillaged all th’ land’s ports o’ thar swag, wit’ his loyal hearties at his side. Th’ crew traversed ye entire Meraki Community t’ escape a fate in th’ gallows, leavin’ thar thievin’ tracks along th’ way.
No one knows where th’ lily-livered scallywags finally came t’ rest, but we reckon ye brave souls might be able t’ track down th’ lost booty n’ send these scurvy dogs t’ walk th’ plank!
