Quandary Resolution 1814
excommunicate, ornithopter, parlay, confiscable
The man knew that to take was not a crime exclusive to the ground, where nature could be hidden in and distraction could be made simply by knocking something over, but in fact, the excommunicate thought in this world of wind, where people sleep in clouds and travel solely by ornithopter or the occasional helium balloon, theft was all the easier (not many were willing to follow a plummeting man), which is what lead to his eventual downfall when sin parlayed upon sin, and through orders of the church, he learned that even heaven was confiscable.
