Fun Fact: All About Crabbygrass


Crabby-grass is a native plant-like animal form native to the planet Deanna, being essentially an animal which has developed remarkably plant-like characteristics. These characteristics enable crabbygrass to blend in remarkably well with ordinary grass and help it to all but disappear into wild grass and even urban lawns.

Crabby-grass has stalk and leaf-like appendages, and even grows seasonal flowers, by which it reproduces by means of wind or insect pollination, and sometimes, even by direct contact with its partners. The creatures generally resemble clumps of thick, green grass – making them appealing, unfortunately, to herbivorous creatures. The creature’s flowers develop into seed-pods, which can be made to rattle when the creature becomes angry and shakes them, usually as a warning. More

Fun Fact: Johannes Albrecht & Albrecht’s Takeaways


Johannes Albrecht – An immigrant who originally hails from New Excelsior Colony, Albrecht is the owner-operator of Albrecht’s Takeaways, a modest yet popular coffee shop set up in an old shipping container on Lupini Square in Atro City. The small enterprise has become well known, especially for his famous family recipe Hot Dogs and Cold Cats – which according to him – are made “the way his a’mamma showed him back in the Old Country” (New Excelsior Colony).

Owned and operated by Albrecht, an entrepreneur who sells exotic coffees and deserts, Albrecht’s Takeaways has grown popular with locals and visitors to Atro City alike. The small enterprise is a popular meeting place for locals, such as Cindy-Mei Winter and her friends, including Danielle Grauffis, Fred and local legendary bounty hunter Beck the Badfeller. The ad-streamer above the serving hatch advertises “Buggers and Chips – only 4.95! Ask about our flavored coffees! TWO for the price of ONE! Specials on Hot Stuff Blend!

The cosy coffee shop, which consists mainly of a converted former shipping container surrounded by clusters of brightly painted benches, tables, chairs and umbrellas, is something of an open-air street-cafe’. Forming part of a cluster of similar businesses operating on the bustling Lupini Square at the very center of Deanna’s capital, Atro City, the business has achieved an entry in the Deannan Tourist Guide. Albrecht’s comes highly recommended – despite featuring a few quirky and possibly even hazardous items on its menu – such as Hot Stuff Blend – known perhaps as the strongest coffee known to Humankind and which (at least according to his advertising) is meant to be drunk while standing up, preferably while running – which has sometimes had …unfortunate consequences.

Had some once – couldn’t sit down for a week!” is the average sort of comment from people who have sampled Hot Stuff Blend. More
