“ There’s a magical oak tree located in the park at the top of Neutakoncanut Hill, but the only being to ever have any knowledge of this magical tree was a deer from the nineteenth century named Frank. Frank learned that gently rubbing his antlers against the oak’s trunk gave him the ability to control the weather with his mind. Not all the weather in the world, of course, but for roughly a four-mile radius around the hill. ”
