Thanks for the great feedback everyone!

This is a unique courier with a heap of personality, it'll bring you items of fabulous power and in the worst case scenario - everyone loves the smell of bacon!

So the Tale;

A weary gnome spent his last gold on pig with the promise that it was special. It turned it out was the laziest piggy the gnome had encountered and being a fan of bacon he had encountered a few.

However rather than eat this pig for dinner the gnome had purposefully bought this pig because it was a rare breed, a breed which would grow to a tremendous size and was said to be capable of travelling faster than a Kobold could run.

Sadly the gnome had hoped to ride his pig but the pig wouldn't budge for anything, well anything but its food.

Determined not to have wasted his money the gnome decided to carry the pig with him - for fear of it being stolen by roaming dire wizards (who often use pigs in their spells).

As it happened there is a twist in the tale. The gnome got more than he bargained for and when the pig sprouted wings and took off - the gnome was dragged along with it! Hanging on for dear life the gnome is determined to deliver the items to victorious heroes.

Essentially this is a courier which consists of two characters, the gnome and his pig. Its close to completion as I am working on the flying animation set.

Special thanks to Robin and Andy for technical help! Thiago for assistence and Mop for awesome anim clean ups!
