Mount Doom Chicken

The mountain rumbled, puffing out a continuous pillar of ash and soot. Rill did not look up. It was hard enough to see without getting soot in her eyes. In her hands she held the Bracelet of Power. She had to get it to the place where it was forged....inside the mountain. She was nearly there. Just ahead she could see the entrance to the great forge that the Dark Iron dwarves created. She was tired and hungry and just wanted this quest to be done so she could get back to her archeological studies.

Suddenly a fierce sqwack sounded from the rocks to her right. A tiny ball of feathers burst out and attacked her with claws and beak. Rill yelped, more out of surprise than hurt or fear and automatically sent a light hammer crashing down on the tiny beast's head. It died instantly.

It was a chicken. She rolled her eyes.

"Oh good. I'll be able to tell my guildmates all about the fearsome beast I faced at the entrance of Mount Doom and wasted a powerful judgement spell on." She sighed then noticed something odd.

The chicken was carrying something. Or at least, it looked like it had. She had never seen a chicken with loot before and she'd killed thousands of them. Rolling the corpse over  with her foot she found a canister of some sort. It had a lid. She picked it up, opened it and sniffed. It was....fizzy. And smelled like...lemonade but not quite like that either. She took an experimental sip.

It was a lot like the Kaja Cola beverages that the Steamwheedle Cartel goblins raved on and on about. It certainly was delicious and it certainly gave her ideas as she took another sip and eyed the chicken corpse. Surely her quest could wait until after dinner....
