Adam Jensen, 29, was out for a walk with his 3-year-old daughter when he noticed a glint of light coming from the grass next to the sidewalk. He initially expected a bit of gum wrapper or aluminum foil, but upon closer inspection discovered he was actually looking at a 3 carat diamond ring.
While many would be tempted to keep a valuable ring and even sell it, Jensen had a different idea of what to do. As he observed the ring's details, he noticed that there was a unique inscription on the inside of the platinum band, and something told him that they were coordinates. Instead of looking up diamond pricing, Jensen did a search for the exact location inscribed in the ring. This led him to a small coffee shop in Orem, Utah.
But he didn't give up there. "I figured that the coffee shop must be important if it's inscribed on the inside of a huge diamond ring. My guess was that it was the place the owner met their partner, went on their first date together, or was proposed to," Jensen explains. "I spoke with the owners and they allowed me to put up a flyer that said 'Found ring'. I left out some details about the ring but included my phone number in case someone came looking."
Meanwhile, the owner of the ring (who wishes to remain anonymous) went looking around every place they had been recently. It wasn't long before they found themselves at the coffee shop where, indeed, they had recently been proposed to. While they did not find the ring, they did find the flyer, and the rest writes itself.
Jensen took the call and returned the ring to its rightful owner after they were able to accurately describe the ring. The owner expressed great appreciation for the integrity Jensen showed and asked that he keep the loss of the ring confidential.
So what does he attribute to his keenness and ingenuity?
"I just rolled really high on my Perception checks," he admits. "Once when I found the ring, and the second time when I found the inscription. Of course I had to do a History check as well to understand that it was coordinates written on the inside. I have a pretty high Intelligence score in general, so once I figured out how I was going to find the owner, the rest was just waiting for the right person to claim the ring. I couldn't have done it though if I didn't know what skill checks to use, so I have Dungeons and Dragons to thank for that." He added, "By the way, do you know anybody who wants to join a campaign? I'm a great DM, but I could be a player, too. This experience makes me wanna play D&D."
When asked why he went through so much trouble to return the ring, he simply responded, "Well duh, I'm Lawful Good."

whale spotted in illinois river A humpback whale was spotted near Morris IL in the Illinois River today. The sighting comes just days after 2 Great White Sharks were seen frolicking in the same area. While not impossible, it does seem unlikely. It is thought that the whale may have followed the sharks as they sometimes do in the wild. The whale would of had to travel over 1250 miles to get to this location. The Marine Biologist Association will be in town for a full investigation. Until we have answers, we are asking folks to keep their pontoons and fishing boats docked.
two great white sharks found swimming in mississippi river near saint louis, missouri. While it is not entirely impossible, it is incredibly uncommon for salt water dwelling creatures to stay for lengthy periods of time in fresh water. However, two Great White Sharks have managed to survive the trip and make their way up the Mississippi River somehow. Believed to have started as a mating couple, the two are assumed to have swam the 920 mile journey from the mouth of the Mississippi River that is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Officials in Saint Louis have contacted the Missouri Conservation Department and will likely have a team in the river soon to capture the two lost sharks.
