You've seen a Chronicler, that's a good start. Well, basicaly, they're the accountants, stock brokers, lawyers and thieves of Oddworld, or Mudos at least. They form the Odd equivalent of our sharp-suited Moolah-loving bank managers. Ever seen that episode of Blackadder II when the Bishop of Bath and Wells threatens to burn Edmund's bottom off? That's how much Chroniclers want debts payed off.
Lady Margaret's really in for it. With the loss of her most profitable franchise (RuptureFarms) and her Prodigl Glukkon Son, she's got a lot of money to pay up - all that material and work-force ain't free, ya know. And while other Glukkons would love to get a-hold of a giant meat-processing plant, that Man-in-Black-esque visit from Mr Pink Socks really does put a damp spell over the otherwise-promising concept.
And that's why the Chroniclers are after Maggie's Moolah. That's where Lulu steps in, to take over RuptureFarms and work it into a profitable business, under the control of Abe and Munch of course. Or at least, that's how the story went before OWI made all the cuts.
There you go. That should be more than enough to satisfy you - hope I've been a help.
The always pleased-to-help,
