A Banquet in Toad Hall

August 2017

A celebration of summer saw Toady summon guests to join him for a Banquet in Toad Hall to mark the overthrowing of the sneaky weasels. Popping up for three weeks, adventurers needed to first find Badger's den before their journey along the riverbank and into Toad Hall could begin.

Soda-water here—baccy there—letter-paper, bacon, jam, cards, and dominoes—you'll find," he continued, as they descended the steps again, "you'll find that nothing whatever has been forgotten, when we make our start this afternoon."
