From the introduction to the story:
Earlier This Morning:
You wake up in your cave with a thumping headache and a raging hunger. Your larder is barer than a Rock Baboon’s bottom and you have decided that now is the time to really tie one on and go on an epic RAMPAGE! The Gnomish town of Boulder Ford, ruled over by King Brilligan the Great, overlord of the Gnomes, lies over in the next valley, and those short, stumpy little people should be easy prey! Grabbing your Stuff, you head out of your cave and climb the range of hills behind your lair.
