    The Fiddle is your bread, and your voice is your butter. You tell stories and sing song, to entertain is your livelihood...
    Last time you met the Half Ogre (half Half-Orc) Grue, who tried to rob you. Trickery, and food, quickly brought him into your fold. Returning to his base of operation, you defeated the Dwarf Glod and looted his cave. In this battle Grue lost an eye to the Dwarf's axe.
    Looting the cave was very profitable. Glod and Grue must have been here quite a while. You were able to salvage Glod's crossbow, 25 bolts, his chainmail shirt, and his helmet.You found several rolls of silk and cloth, some jewelry, and in a locked box 3 potions of healing and 4 gold coins. Though the potions are not very strong according to Newt.
    All in all you can probably sell everything for a total of 10 gold, including the 4 coins. This is the most money you've ever had.
    You were also heading to a small village down the road.

    Switch out our leather vest for the chain mail shirt. Ask Newt if our other health potion is strong enough to completely fix Grue's eye. You also might want to keep the silk with you and give it too a tailor in addition to some pay and get them to make some nice costumes for our show.

    First things first. Grue's eye. The wagon gets to the cave and Tabby starts loading the loot. You take the healing potions from the cave and approach Newt, to see if any of them are strong enough. As soon as you ask Newt shakes her head. "No. This would have stopped the bleeding and the pain, but they would only have sealed the wound. They aren't strong enough to heal the eye. It would take a decently strong Cleric or a Paladin to do that."
    Looks like Grue will have to stay with an eyepatch for now. You have to scold him a few more times for picking at it.
    You take the dwarf's chain vest and put it on. It's a little short and wide, but it fits. Newt takes the padded vest from you. "Every little bit helps."
    With a little help from Grue you manage to get up on his back, sitting on one shoulder, Grue puts Zanne on the other. His shoulders are wide enough to sit on comfortably, even if they are a bit boney. As Grue lopes down the road, far too big to sit in the wagon but easily able to keep up, you spot a young man working in a field next to the road. He looks up at your approach, screams, and runs as fast as he can down the road. You can see the village in the distance.

    After taking a moment to get Elisabeth out of the wagon, you start playing from your perch. It's a jaunty little tune that you hope will calm down the village once you get... Oh my.

    You stop Grue just outside f the town. Getting down off of him, now that you think about it, he has to be at least 8 feet tall, you cautiously approach the villagers while playing a song. They seem to huddle up some as you get closer, and an old man who is missing an arm steps foreword. "We've had enough of you rabble! You'll leave the village alone or we'll have to defend ourselves. The dwarf has finally gone too-" You interrupt him and tell him Glod is dead, and toss the helmet to him. You explain that you're just traveling performers. "And what about the beast you have with you? Do you know how many people he's hurt? He was the dwarf's dog!" He keeps peering down at the helmet, and back at you. "And how do we know you aren't just a new set to torment us? Just... go away!"

    You point out, very reasonably, that if you meant harm to the village then you wouldn't have left your heaviest hitters outside while you came up alone to introduce yourself, also, you're wearing the dwarf's chain shirt right now. You tell them you'll be providing a free show for them, and encourage them to keep their weapons with them if it makes them feel better. Then you cheat a little. Using your ventriloquist skills, ghost sound for those keeping track, you make a voice from the center of the crowd. "Whats the harm it it then?" Several of the people in the crowd look around. The one armed man looks down at the helmet again. "We'll be keeping an eye on you... But keep that thi... please keep the half Ogre out of the village." He seems to consider this. "No. Bring him with you. I don't want him sneaking about."
    You motion for the wagon to come up. You introduce everyone one at a time. TABBY THE STRONG! NEWT THE AMAZING! ZANNE THE BEAUTIFUL! FARAL THE EXOTIC! GRUE THE GIGANTIC! And Tanot, the driver.
    You open up with a song about traveling the road, accompanied by Faral and Tanot, with effects by Newt. After a few more songs, the villagers seem to be relaxing a bit and you see women and children peering out of the houses, you let Tabby exhibit her strength. She picks up a bench with five men sitting on it, beats multiple farmers in arm wrestling, and such. Newt does more tricks, from lights to pulling a silver out of a little girls ear, she give the girl the silver.
    You end up in the village for several hours preforming. After the show, while you're loading up the wagon, the one armed man approaches you. "I... I wanted to apologize for before. We... couldn't trust you. Glod and Grue... Glod has been terrorizing the village for several months now. Is there any way we can make it up to you?"

    You ask about a cleric or someone with magic healing. "Sorry miss, if there was anyone like that around I'd have both my arms. But I know you can find some like that in Vimestead. You still have about a week, maybe a little less, to go." You ask about anyone with talent that wants to leave, which seems to get the old man defensive. "No, no one like that around." Then you ask for supplies, much to his relief. "We're just simple farmers, but food is something we can spare. Change out your horses for some better ones as well... for a small price. Horses is expensive, even trading."
    For 50 silver silver he's willing to give you the two strongest horses in the village, one riding horse, and a larger wagon. He'll take 10 silver if you leave the leave the old wagon and horses. The Supplies will be for an afternoon of entertainment, about 2 weeks worth for everyone in the party but Grue. For 3 silver he'll throw in a good fat cow.

    You give the man 53 silver for a new cart, horses, and a cow. You make it clear to Tanot that these are yours, and you won't take any of his property. Grue looks at the cow and pets it's head. "Cows yummy! Feed Grue for week easy! I call you Sausage!" Well at least the food problem for the next week is settled. You keep all the supplies in Tanot's wagon, leaving enough room for him and one other passenger, and make this bigger wagon you travel wagon. This is big enough that even Grue will be able to sit in it, even if he's hanging off the back. Sadly, no one seems to have pain in any other color but white int his town, and the only tailor is an old woman that says it'll take a week to make you a suit, and that it was inappropriate for a young lady to be wearing pants.
    As you make these transactions and the supplies are loaded, you inquire about anyone that the old man might not have wanted you to find out about, but with more finesse. The village seems to be just another farming village. The only person of note, other then the old man who is apparently the founder of the village, is his granddaughter. She spends a lot of time in the woods, sometimes weeks at a time, and is the best shot with a bow in the village, she makes more huntign kills then anyone else.

Hunting would greatly reduce our need to buy rations. It would CERTAINLY make it easier to feed Grue. We should probably get some white paint. You have to put a base coat on things before adding color to them.

    Marksman. Put an apple on someone's head and have them shoot it off, or other shit like that. Put someone on a spinning wheel and have them shoot at the wheel so they just barely miss the person tied to it. It's classic.

    Thank you for arguing semantics? It doesn't really change my point at all, we have someone who can shoot a bow, but not well enough that it'll attract a crowd. I'm still in favor of hiring the girl.

    We are heading to Vimestead, a larger city where things happen. If we pick up talent, and much more money from the richer townsfolk, we can ultimately get a real circus going. Afterwards, new roads are opening up, elven lands or something

    At first you dismiss this girl, and then you get to thinking about what she could add to the act. You certainly have the room now, and she sounds like the outdoorsy type anyway. You ask after her, only to find out shes out of the village, but is supposed to return that evening. It;s still mid-afternoon. The only ones who HAVE to be in Vimestead are Faral and Newt, both of which are in no rush. You've been talking to them in the evenings, trying to convince them to stay full time and you've been making great progress.
    So you decide to stay for the night. You have the one armed man's permission, turns out he calls himself Persius and used to be a high ranking soldier.
    Faral wants to be in Vimestead before the Elven Trade Roads open, to gather news for her people. But the Roads don't open for a few more months.

    You wait out the rest of the day. You practice your music and at one point entertain the villages children with semi-educational tales. One little child, you can't tell if it's a boy or girl under all the dirt, seems very interested in your violin. "Someday I wanna play music and beat up badguys too!" Tabby helps the local butcher prepare the meat from Sausage for travel, although it seems that Grue likes playing with his food... as in he plays with the skull like a puppet.
    Eventually evening comes. The village doesn't have an inn, but several people have offered their haylofts to the party. You are unable to find Persius' granddaughter, so you settle for the night, or you begin to anyway.
    "I hear you've been lookin' for me?" A woman stands in the doorway of the barn you're sleeping in. She's wearing a dark green hooded cloak with a longbow strapped to her back and a band of throwing knives around one arm. She leans against the door frame and flicker her dark hair from her gray eyes, her red shirt seems an dd color to wear with green to you. "Want do you want?"

    You ask her what her skills are. She spits into the hay next to your foot and grins. "I'm the best damn shot this village has, and in the surrounding ones. Only person better then me would have to be an elf, one trained from birth. And then only because they would have a couple decades more practice then me." You ask if she can back up these claims. Almost before you can finish the sentence, she has three throwing knives out and tossed. They pass close enough that you can feel them passing your ear. Turning around, all three are firmly in a knot in the wood behind you. "You're damn right I can. Ruby never make a boast she can't follow through." You look her up and down. The best word you can think of is lithe. Thin, but well toned. Intrigued, you ask her about coming with you. "Sure, I've been wanting to leave this dump for years. We heading out tonight? It'd be easier if we did. Gramps wont be happy."

    It takes a focused effort of will to keep yourself from salivating, and you immediately agree to leaving. You ask that she leaves a note or something to prevent the village from chasing after you with torches. Ruby grins at your response. "Hey, I'll try damn near anything twice. Meet you in the square." She blows a kiss to you as she leaves the barn, and you hear her chuckling, a thick, velvety chuckle.
    You quickly and quietly wake everyone up and try to get them moving. Much confused and sleepy muttering later everyone gets on the wagons. You calm them down you tell them that the Persius isn't too pleased with asking about his granddaughter, and that he polity asked for you to leave before morning. everyone tries to get comfortable and most fall back asleep. Tanot doesn't seem to be all that surprised with leaving, come to think of it he came into the bard a few hours after everyone else, and he drives the supply wagon without complaint. The riding horse is tethered to Tanot's wagon, and Gregor is acting as a pillow for Zanne. Grue lopes easily alongside the wagons.
    As you pass through the square, a pack thumps down on the bench beside you, followed quickly by Ruby. "I'm used to leaving on short notice. There's a nice spot for camp a few miles up the road. If we head out at sunrise no one in the village will catch up."

    With most of the crew asleep again you give a theatrical yawn and lean against Ruby. She takes the reigns from you and otherwise ignores you. She doesn't seem to mind, or care, that you're leaning on her. You spend the time it takes to get to the clearing leaning comfortable against the ranger.
    After reaching the clearing it doesn't take very long to set up camp. It's a nice enough night that most everyone doesn't bother with tents and just sleeps on their bedroll. Ruby takes first watch, and you immediately volunteer to stay up with her, saying that now that you have enough people it's safer to have two to a shift.
    After everyone else falls asleep Ruby looks at you and steps out of the firelight. "Come with me, and try not to make too much noise."
