SHANTY HEIGHTS

neverthrive:

Is there anything worse than false advertisement? You came to Bedlam Ridge hoping to meet fellow turtle enthusiasts and instead find a ruthless gang of bandits. They should really put that in the travel brochure so other people don't get fooled. Luckily, you've found a safer, less gang infested area of the City to explore. You make your way down the streets of Shanty Heights, your faithful Squirtle companion in tow. The people there keep a wary distance from you, having learned to distrust strangers entering their city after years of attacks from the Ribs and Shells. At least you weren't gonna get robbed or anything here, right? Right?

The streets start to empty as you travel futher through the city, and soon you find yourself being the only pedestrian out and about. Looks like you can breathe a little easier. Or maybe you should worry that the streets were too quiet - that someone could be lurking around the corner. Watching. Waiting...
A glimmer down the street catches your eye. You follow the glimmer to its source - an ornate turtleshell just standing there in the middle of the road, held aloft by two orange clasps. And if that wasn't surprising enough, coins seemed to be pouring out from each of it's holes. It was if the heart of the shell was filled with gold. You've stumbled upon a fortune, and nobody's around. Do you take the turtleshell or leave it?
"This has to be some sort of trick, right?" Erven remarked, skeptically, of this new discovery. "I mean, it's totally obviously a trap, right?" he asked, turning to Greg for an answer, who looked to him in kind and simply shrugged. Erven sighed, feeling no less conflicted and turned his ponderous gaze back to the strange item.

Who would just leave a gold spewing turtle shell in the street if not for some nefarious purpose? But then again, he thought, who would just leave a gold spewing turtle shell in the street? Surely not Erven, as he stooped and grasped for the suspiciously appropriately themed trinket, figuring that the reward outweighed the risk.
