Chapter 2

The Hunt

  • The weird sounds just keep on coming, and finally Arthur sees three large cheeses running through the woods. Chasing the cheese are hounds and men on horseback.
  • Wait, those horses look weird… their legs are too skinny and their faces look drawn-on. As Arthur watches, one of the horses halts, and after the rider hops off, the horse separates its body from its legs. Turns out there are two dudes wearing a horse chassis.
  • The rider switches in for one of the horse-leg-guys, and they continue on the hunt.
  • A muzzled hound brings down a cheese, and one of the riders ties the cheese up in order to lead it back to town. The rest of the hunt continues.
