    I would like to commission a nine foot wooden effigy of Hardcastle, made to lifelike features. It should be hard to damage, but be as weak as a child, and have the aim of one, and be very vulnerable to fire. It will be a symbol of Nature's regard for Hardcastle. I do not intend for Adventurers to fight it. Rather, I will let the commoners fight it and "kill" it.
