The Shire is abuzz with the coming Mayoral election. Edward Eatonhogg and Francis Wimpley are up in arms against one another for the candidacy. There are allegations zooming around that Francis Wimpley is conspiring with three dark witches, relying on them for power and luck in the election. The washer wenches, the gravedigger, street urchins, school mistress, jesters, and all of the others within the shire are filled with excitement about the coming of the queen, but are shaken to the bone when the three dark witches actually appear! They cast a spell invoking luck and power. How Strange... Grace Magdeline, religious zealot frightens the witches hence, and the day in the shire has begun. Queen Elizabeth I will arrive soon- along with local nobility and Diplomats from afar on her annual progress to her favorite little shire, Kingston Upon Hull. Will the three witches affect the Queen's visit and influence the election? Excitement abounds in Kingston Upon Hull!
