In the quaint and bustling town of Bridgeport County, a remarkable mode of transportation reigns supreme: the Carrot Run Cart (CRC). A creation of ingenuity and practicality, the CRC is a four-wheeled wooden cart specifically designed for swift and efficient goods delivery by the esteemed Hare-Mail Delivery Company.   Crafted with precision and care by Gnome Workshop, each CRC is a marvel of engineering. Its sturdy wooden frame is expertly constructed to withstand the weight of various goods while maintaining a lightweight design for effortless manoeuvrability. The cart's wheels are equipped with sleek metal rims, ensuring a smooth glide along the cobblestone streets of the county.   What sets the CRC apart is its dedicated driver, a wibbit, member of the rabbitfolk community. Known for their exceptional speed and boundless endurance, the wibbit is the perfect creature to pull the cart with unmatched agility.

  The Hare-Mail Delivery Company prides itself on its swift and reliable services, and the CRC plays a significant role in upholding this reputation. When a customer requires a package delivered promptly, they need only send a request to the Hare-Mail Delivery company, and soon enough, a wibbit with its trusty CRC will be dispatched to fulfil the task.   The wibbit handlers are a highly esteemed group, trained from a young age in the art of cart-pulling. They build a profound connection with their carts, treating them not just as tools but as loyal companions.   In the early morning, the town awakens to the sight of wibbits and their CRCs racing through the streets, leaving a trail of wonder and efficiency in their wake. Their nimble forms allow them to navigate even the narrowest alleyways and deliver goods and mail to even the most remote corners of Bridgeport County.   All CRCs have a sign attached to each side advertising Enchanting Curves & Co, which helped kickstart the Hare-Mail Delivery Company.  
This is GM information
Wisps of Wibbit Energy: It is rumoured that when the CRCs travel at great speed under the moonlight, faint, silvery wisps of energy trail behind them. Some believe these ethereal streaks are glimpses of the wibbits' connection to the spirit of their ancestors, who once roamed the wild fields in the moon's embrace. Actually, it is just the iron wheels on the cobblestones that cause sparks.   Carrot Juice Energy Boost: Among the rabbitfolk handlers, there is a secret recipe for a special carrot juice blend that serves as an energy booster for the wibbits. This concoction, made from the juiciest and most nourishing carrots, grants the wibbits a temporary burst of speed and stamina, allowing them to accomplish particularly urgent deliveries with lightning speed. So they say.   Dimensional Storage: A well-kept secret known only to the wibbit handlers of the Hare-Mail Delivery Company is that the CRCs possess a limited form of dimensional storage within their cart compartments. This magical feature allows the handlers to store more goods than initially appeared possible, making the CRC a valuable asset even for for large-scale deliveries.

YES! Simple, practical transport vehicles get so underserved in worldbuilding, and I'm glad I read this.

Nice read (as always with your Articles)!

And now I am playing the devils' advocat: In the first Paragraph, you write
"[...]the CRC is a two-wheeled wooden cart[...]" and the you show us a picture of a four-wheeld cart.
So wich one will be the correct statement:
1. "[...]the CRC is a two- or four-wheeled wooden cart[...]"
2. "[...]the CRC is a two-axel wooden cart[...]"
3. "[...]the CRC is a four-wheeled wooden cart[...]"
4. "This damm little Fae, they stole and interchanged my picture!"

    Aw sheesh, need to fix that. I couldn't get for my life a 2-wheel image done, so I wrote 4 wheels, but then decided that would be a way too bug cart. But then, with the magical compartment again, the actual load wouldn't take that much space, so it could have 4 wheels but be really small... all you need is a tiny "door" into the magical compartment.
