• "Pet Cluckling" - 80 MSP
This tiny chicken always longed for a life beyond the coop, to stretch her wings and take flight across Albion.

Fulfil her dream by hanging her in your cart and you'll make her so happy that she'll occasionally lay an egg that will grant you bonus Experience.
• "Wisp-in-a-Jar" - 80 MSP
A wisp is a haunted, restless soul, cursed to remain in our world long after its mortal flesh has rotted. As such, it seems the perfect thing to hang from the side of your cart, with only fragile glass keeping it sealed away. There's literally nothing that could go wrong with that arrangement. Your reward for this bravery? Extra health.
