The Wobu Wobu and King Opoolintz
The king breeds the Wobu Wobu as his transports. He has a lot of them because they can only carry him for a few days before they die of exhaustion. He likes to parade around his kingdom and show off his new bird every now and then. They're born white, but he likes to dye their feathers bright colors so he can be seen from farther away. He has to ride with large cavalry in order to protect him from the hordes of disenfranchised farmers that could actually benefit from the Wobu Wobu and use them to make better use of the land. The king, as he should, usually throws them a coin or two.
