"I remember as a child the ragman would visit the village after another trip into the ancient ruins with all sorts of wonders from that forgotten age, but as the years went on he returned with only scraps. Father would buy them for a pittance out of kindness; the metal could still be used to make new farming tools." - Ada from the Hilltop Village.
