Title Minnesota Smith and the Mystic Stone
Description Continuing the adventures of Minnesota Smith from an earlier card.

As she poured over early Germanic texts from the days of the Holy Roman Empire, Minnesota read tales of a mystic stone imbued with great power. It was at the Battle of Letchworth, as Henry I, the duke of Bavaria lay dying, that he, along with Otto and Duke Conrad made a blood pact to protect the realm. As their blood fell upon the stone, It took on protective powers, which some say helped Otto propel his forces into victory.

But where was the stone now? And what of the curse? For indeed, as Minnesota came to learn, such a power could not be left unguarded. In the latter days of the empire the mystic stone of Letchworth was disguised and hidden among stones that appeared normal, but actually were cursed by the devil.

Fortunately, Minnesota Smith was committed to finding the stone. Not only versed in ancient languages, she was also the foremost authority on geological incantations and other earthy magic. Uncovering the stone, she retrieved it for the national archives where it now resides. Unfortunately, it was catalogued using an old software system that is no longer compatible, so no one is really sure where in the archives it is, but they know, if they ever do need it, Minnesota Smith could find it.
I received a fun challenge in the comments on my other card from Loladog and Ancient Planter to continue the adventures of Minnesota Smith. I wasn't sure I could, but this turned out pretty well.

Minnesota Smith and the Mystic Stone

Love it!! Great card and fun story! Doggone those computer catalogs; it was so much easier with the old card system!! (Used to be my job to type the cards and update the card catalogs, then update each individual computer in the Santa Barbara P.L. system when the switch happened). What's up next for Minnesota??? Inquiring minds want to know!
