When the Troth attacked the ancient forest, a local tinker named Nubieous Maximus believed he could build a flying machine to spy on Mörken's forces. Sadly, Nubieous's dream did not last. The lifting gas used came from rotting flummox weed and proved highly combustible. The last sight of the aeronaut was a plummeting ball of flame that destroyed the Troth base camp. It is often said that Nubieous Maximus stayed at his post screaming "Death to Troth," but that may only be a legend.
