Watch your valuables, pickpockets are back!

Ladies and gentlemen, citizen of New Babbage, unsuspecting visitors, travellers and about anyone setting foot on the streets of our City, here is a word of warning :

You are used to deal with nice well-behaved street urchins who greet you and smile and help you around with only a “thank you” as a reward?

Well those times are over.

New Babbage is not a safe town and its streets are not buzzing with well-fed happy children. We are starving, we are dirty, we carry fleas and lice, and we spend our days fighting to survive.

We will from now on be back to our old ways, which means you might someday cross our path and notice after turning the corner that your wallet has vanished. You might see us beg for money, sell matches or roses, and busk in front of the Excelsior.

We’re also open to discuss all kinds of discutably legal affairs. We don’t say nothing, we’re fast and know our way around town. Just think about it!

As a final note, please be aware that if you have been mugged, that was nothing personal against you. We can very well like you a lot and find you nice, but we’ll still nick your pocket watch.

That being said, enjoy your day Misses and Sirs!

Spread the love

There is access for canal boats….. Rates are reasonable… just rates in general, not those fer storing any dodgy gear, cus we don’t know nuffin bout that sort of stuff….

    “New Babbage is not a safe town” no it is not safe.

      Maybe that should be the city’s motto?

      Or at least posted on signs at all the city’s approaches?
