Blocked paths and robbery

In the old days reavers known as "highwaymen" would block roads with downed trees so they could rob travelers.

Some of the intended victims didn't submit so easily, and some thieves died. Some of the surviving reavers got wise and realized it would be helpful if they could find a way to get their victims to stop fighting back.

So, now most reavers use speed limits instead of logs.



  1. Yah those reavers are getting to be a real nuisance. Around here they are even ticketing Amish and Mennonite horse buggies now.

  2. Well, you know, those Amish and Mennonites are pretty dangerous- to the myth that The State is necessary, anyway.
