THE ZAP BRIGADE
Today I'm writing about a strange band of individuals that have been sighted in the mines from time to time. They call themselves the "ZAP Brigade" and wield mighty staffs of lightning, with which they apparently patrol the caves in small squads ranging in size from just a few individuals all the way up to nine. Their signature calling card is the loud fanfare they seem to play whenever they introduce themselves to someone. I do not believe they actually carry any instruments with them, so it is probable that the music they create is magical in origin.
Of particular note about the ZAP Brigade is that they pride themselves in hunting down and destroying wild minotaurs; an impressive feat to speak of for sure, but one that this author cannot confirm. It is frankly very unclear to whom they hold their allegiances, if they hold allegiance to anyone at all; but they seem peaceful and cooperative, so no one has ever complained of their presence. It is my guess that they work with the wizard Merlin, who was kicked out of the Mage's guild many moons ago for a disastrous experiment involving the destruction of his own tower, though Merlin and the ZAP Brigade are seen together so infrequently that this is little more than conjecture on my part.
