Who Let This Idiot Loose?
by Clarence Dickelbrunn
tupidity. That's all that can be said about the Great Fire Tornado of 1203. Sheer stupidity.
This idiot of a bard is apparently some kind of demon at the same time. Everywhere they go, destruction follows. Everywhere. Not sure what this pariah was doing in the middle of a former battlefield, but they managed to set the whole thing on fire. And the forest. And nearly a nearby town. She's a menace!
Apparently, this genius/nuisance decided that to avoid being criticized for their ridiculously bad playing ability, they'd go practice in a field. Of course, this fool chose the one field that was a burial ground/funeral site. You can probably guess what happened.
The blasted dimwit began playing their cursed bagpipes poorly enough to raise the dead - literally.
The infernal sound started waking the souls of those who died and were cremated on that field. All of them. The ground began to churn as the dead made their way out of dirt and into the light. Apparently, these ghouls appreciated being let loose, and started circling the bagpipe wielder. At this point, the damage was done. That fool bard stopped playing, but the spirits kept moving until they created their own wind current. 'Round and 'round, until a vortex spun up.
Now there was a cursed tornado of fire burning. And the fire itself intensified the tornado, causing it to get out of hand in a hurry.
