After their previous adventures, Reta Bigbad, Chuffy Lickwound, and Mogmurch were now well renowned goblin heroes among the Licktoad tribe. Yesterday, the tribe discovered that one of their own had been using forbidden arts and engaged in one of the most heinous of crimes — writing things down. After branding his face with scribbles, they swiftly ran Scribbleface out of town, took all his stuff, and burned down his hut. However, inside of his hut was found a map and a lot of fireworks.
This morning, Chief Gutwad announced that there would be a grand feast tonight in order to drive out any lingering bad luck. The heroes were also secretly invited to meet at his Moot House. They arrived and Chief Gutwad praised them for being heroes, "That you aren't fleeing in terror from mighty sound of my voice is all the proof you should need." He told them about the map, and that he figured the map most likely led to even more fireworks! The heroes set off the very next day after a very strong night of merriment.
Into Brinestump Marsh they went, following the path that would lead to more fire sparkles. Not too long on their journey they were suddenly ambushed by Lotslegs Eat Goblin Babies Many, which most goblins were scared of, but not them. With their confidence, they quickly dispatched the giant spider and quickly moved on in their quest. Finally, they made it to the location on the map, a shipwreck that had been decorated with rags and many goblin skeletons. This must be the lair of Vorka, the cannibal, they realized.
After being attacked by a horse, and accidentally knocking down a wasp nest, they boarded the ship, where they found Vorka and her minions. Dogs. Lots of dogs. Seeing all the dogs, they were enraged and killed all of them, taking the treasure and glory back to their village where they were celebrated again.
