"Why thank you," said the Master of Beasts. "This carnival has many beasts. We do have dragons, a werepanther, and possibly a Rakshasa. Would you like to see them?"

"How many Dragons did you say? I've had a fascination in them since I was small, so much so I manifested a red one as a familiar, you see?" he says looking up to the beastmaster,"I'm something of a beastmaster myself, what with Rafiki AND Zinn here now, We'd love to see the more, exotic things you have on display too."

Zinnath bounces his head up and down, and responds back to Nbazi, "very familiar!"

I guess the first thing to do would be to figure out where the other keys are? I don't think we'll able to just break them out without them," he says, then hearing the bell ring a second time he looks to Mongo and Ukube,"although maybe I'm wrong, Those 2 can probably break anything if they put their muscles to it." he says with smile.

Baz approaches Yumbu and asks, "Find anything yet? So far all I found was a pair of Oliphants." watching her talk to the wolf. "still finding it easy to talk to animals I see. Maybe we can get him to expose himself for what he is? It's dangerous, but the city wont allow a Rakshasa to operate so close if they know what he is. When is his next show?" he leans his head over to Zinnath and says "Steel boxes? Sounds familiar eh?"

This is turning out to be quite the adventure, maybe even one to rival Jatembe and his followers....

Ukube happily tags along with the group, taking in the sights and generally appearing to be in a great mood.

"Some of these beast are fearsome and dangerous all right. I've encountered many like them on expeditions in the deep jungle. Are you sure you want to set them free?"

Easily distracted, he looks around to spot the mentioned contest of strength or other forms of entertainment.

"Not everyone, but if they were imprisoning Zinn, they could be imprisoning other sentient beings. Lets just see what else the Carnival has to offer." He says watching Mongo approach the test or Strength.

"No no no, don't worry about it you can buy food later if you want to pay me back," Baz said to Yumbulika looking at all the wonders, he replies to Kugu, "Its possible they are paid to sit in the cage and be gawked at... but we should be able to find that out simply enough....". He takes a good look around the immediate area to see if he can Identify anything that might be sentient in a cage or on display.

Baz, growing impatient with the haggling cuts to the chase, "Look, either your gonna do good business and let us in for 5 silver, knowing we have 2 strongmen that will undoubtedly cause you too get much more than 2 extra silver in profit, or you charge us 7 silver and we don't participate in any events. Either way we'd like to go in." he says showing a handful of 5 silver in one hand, while holding 2 more hidden in the other hand.

”Ohhhh! Soooo, Kee kee naa will be deciding which sentients can be caged, and which ones are worthy of being freed!”

We take in the sights and wonders of the carnival for now, anything that is sentient and here willingly shouldnt need a cage for people to view them, but something like this tiger demon shouldnt be here in a civilized city at all, sentient or not. Baz projects back to Zinnath.

"5 silver should be fair for our group right? After all, 2 of us are applicants in the strong man games you offer anyways!" he shouts out, trying to help Yumbulika secure the discount.

Inyoni nods affirmatively at the faerie dragon's comment.

"Rakshasas are spirits of great evil born into physical form. They are shape changers and some have tiger aspects to their bodies, yes. But other animals can be rakshasa forms as well."

"They are powerful and clever, able to bend the minds of others to their will with crafty words and magic. They are absolutely not the kind of thing one finds on display in a traveling carnival."

"I will go too. I must see what is really there. Hopefully they are lying. If not, those men are fools or slaves to it."

"I don't think you could have made me more interested if you had been trying... let's go!" Baz says before whistling for Rafiki to join him.

It'd need to be spent on something important. Getting into a carnival that might have imprisoned people in it sounded important. "So we all can agree that carnival sounds a little fishy, right?"

"Oh most definitely, fishier than the wharf at dawn. Does anyone have any other plans for today or can we go now?" Nbazi said, wiping the crumbs from his goatee and dusting himself off as he stands up from his seat.

The two men confer amongst themselves. "A werepanther, a rakashasa, and an oliphant," one of them said.

"An Oliphant?? that sounds quite amazing, where did you say you were set up? I'd say I'm quite in the mood for a carnival, what do you say everyone?" he asks the table of old and new friends, while not taking his eyes off the 2 men.

Zinnath chuckles as he looks at his red scales.

He also speaks to Yumbulika and Nbazi telepathically, "hey, those guys that just came in. I think they're looking for me. Perhaps we should leave? I could disappear, if you think that would help."

I'm not sure that's a good idea.... they might be prepared for invisibility, and as far as they are concerned, you are my familiar. With Magaambya it should be plausible enough and they wont start a fight in a bar on Dry season day.

Mongo looks down at the little man speaking to him. He gives a toothy grin.

"Mongo not that hungry. Or that rich."

Mongo stops and tries to count his remaining coin, but keeps losing count. He finally gives up, sighing, and turns back to Nbazi.

"Mongo have no place to go, no job, and no friends. You know something Mongo can do?"

"here let me help you, Mongo was it?" Baz says reaching out to help the giant count out his coins,"OK so these 3 should cover your cheese and something to wash it down," he says pointing to a silver and 2 coppers,"but this one is a button, oh my I hope no one tried to pass that off as a copper." he shakes his head trying not to laugh.

Baz turns back to Mongo,"Well as for a place to go, lets start with the big table with the tiny lady and Grippli," he says pointing to Yumbu and Kugu. As they approach the table he hears Kugu and says to Mongo, and look at that a Job too, if you don't mind the jungle. As for friends, I'd be a fool not to count someone like you as a friend so welcome to the Dry Season celebration!" he says as he settles back into his chair and takes a large bite of melon, noticing that his fruit bowl has significantly less fruit than a moment ago, he shoots a knowing smile at Zin who is digging into their own bowl.

"My mother once told me, not to miss the bird on my head for the one in the tree. The whole "half-full" or "half-empty" comment kind of implies only one option."

"there's more than just the allergies Yumbu," Baz says through a mouthful of melon,"Okori's might have some debts he hasnt paid off yet and Oyamba and her family know. They wont let approve a proposal till that's cleared up." he said before quickly realizing he's talking about things he should be in such a public setting, and stuffs a honey cake in his mouth to stop himself from saying more. I should not have said that... that debt was recorded in the box I... inventoried right before finding Zin; certainly not the kind of debt ANYONE would want public. Black market debts that became public could be the source of shame to some communities after all.

“Hi Baz,” Yumbulika greets her friend’s arrival with a warm smile. “You look quite dashing with that leather shoulder pad. Maybe you could get a leather glove too and conjure a hawk to join your other summonings?” Speaking of which, she casually addresses his companions. “Hi Raf, Zin.” She plucks a piece of banana from her fruit bowl, handing it to the mandrill before gazing at Nbazi with respectful admiration. Summoning spells were always beyond Yumbu’s ken, so she can’t help but be impressed by someone who can keep two creatures around for essentially forever.

Nbazi blushed at Yumbulika's compliment and made sure to try to have that shoulder closest to her for the rest of the day,"Thank you." He manages to murmer out before blushing again.

Okay, refocus on the less awkward thing. "To answer your question, the thatcher job went fine. Bit... prickly, and got straw places I'd never want the straw to get. It went fine though. Of course with the dry season, they didn't need me anymore... But I don't need a new place to stay! The thatcher managed to point me to a shop that wanted a clerk. Owned by Juttu, if you know the guy? So uh, no need to go asking your friends if I can say with them for me..."

"That's where I recognized you from! We had some of our stalls thatched a few times over the wet season!" He exclaimed, "Well I'm glad to hear things are looking up for you." He says with a warm smile before popping a raspberry into his mouth.

"You have cheese? Mongo like cheese."

Mongo looks around, a bit forlorn, looking for anyone who seems friendly.

Cheese?Cheese!"CHEESE! I knew I forgot to order something, I'll be right back," he says as he eyes Mongo ordering his food and he stops,"And I think I might have found someone who can carry a whole wheel..." he says before realizing he is staring at the Massive man, he shakes his head and walks up to him and the waitress,"And some for us too please!" He says hoping she catches his small stature before turning look at Mongo, craning his neck almost all the way up,"I hope you arent planning on eating all the cheese before she can get me some!" he pipes.

Zinnath reaches out with his tail and pulls the "extra mint" fruit bowl in his direction, and while doing so, he knocks a bunch of the fruit from the second bowl into "his" bowl.

He pops a couple strawberries, and, he's not sure what else, into his mouth.

He waits until the servers walk away before speaking, "gee Nbazi, what are we gonna do tonight?"

"I'm not sure" he said in between bites of fruit and honey cake,"I've been trying to lie low with the night crowd since I found you in that box, whoever put you there is probably looking for you, you know."

after taking a table number, Baz looks around and see's Yumbulika at a table with Kugu at a table on the far side of the patio, and heads over to them, "Hello Yumbulika; Kugu, have you met Zinnath yet?

Zinnath had been enjoying the sun on his scales as Nbazi walked along, but the sudden increase in speed and tempo nearly tumble him off the halfling's shoulder. He tightened his tail's grip, and dug his claws a bit into the leather shoulder covering that Nbazi had taken to wearing over his left shoulder as a perch. "Huh? What? Oh, yes, dry season. That means bad humor, or something, right? Well, I am always merry, am I not?"

"As for Yumbu, yes, while you certainly have introduced to me to a lot of bipeds, most of them are taller, so how could I forget Yumbu?"

Zinnath's mood sours a bit at the idea of bipeds drinking too much, but the mention of a bowl of fruit changed things up immediately. "Can it be the big bowl of fruit? The one with the mint leaves shredded over it?"

"Yes and maybe some berries with cream and honeyed cakes and oh maybe some dates if they have any." Baz says rattling of a light halfling snack.

"Okay Zinn, this is the first day of dry season, that means its a great day to be merry and enjoy ourselves!" Nbazi says to the Faerie Dragon on his shoulder before glancing back at the magnificant Baboon sleeping on the bench outside his families house,C'mon Rafiki, lets see if Yumbu is at the bar." he says before picking up his stride, "you remember her right? She was the first person I introduced you too after finding you in that box." he says to the Faerie Dragon as he starts walking to the patio, thinking about that day. The box was labeled with the trade symbol for pearls, I had no idea there was an albino dragon in there! he thought to himself.

"Maybe Yumbu will be there and I can buy her a drink and share a fruit bowl while I impress her with the story? What do you think? he asks Zinnath as they round the street corner the bar is on.

It looks like we might have a smaller party than we thought? We may not end up with the 8 or 9 characters we had 2 weeks ago, it looks like Kikina (13 days), Ukube(12 days), and Inyoni (14 days) havent posted in almost 2 weeks.

Of course they could be just lurking and waiting for the adventure to begin, but either way I think a Summoner, his eidolon, a sorceress, A Faerie Dragon, a Grippli, and a Mongo sound like a good party too.

OK, how does this sound...

Returning to the city after his battle with the demon apes, Kugu is almost immediately set upon by thieves. Mongo just happened to be wandering by and saw this crime and saw how the little 'froggie' was hurt and being attacked by 3 thieves, decided to step in and even the score. While wiping up the street with the criminals, Nbazi wanders in and decides to help the wounded grippli, and Mongo follows along to make sure his new buddy is going to be OK.

Beautiful!

Nbazi was wandering through the town mostly enjoying the sights of his city and getting to know his new friend Zinnay, when he saw the scuffle and a very large man helping a small frog back up to his feet. "Looks like they need some help eh Zinnay? C'mon Rafiki lets go!" he shouted as they ran over to the scene, "you alright there Mr Froglegs?" he says before noticeing the tree trunks of legs standing next to the frogman,"Jatembe's beard!" He exclaims as he cranes his neck up to look at the man,"hows the weather up there! I saw you chasin' off those theives, nasty buggers they are." he Turns his attention back to the frog,"Anything broken or hurt? I'd be happy to patch you up if you need it?" he asks repeating his question in Polyglot, then Osiriani if needed.

"I'm Nbazi by the way, Nbazi Samba. You can call me Baz though, most people do. This is Rafiki, he keeps me safe and this is Zinnay, my... uh... familiar ya... that's what wizards at Magaambya have right? ." he says surreptitiously before blushing slightly.

bluff: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

DC 7 sense motive:

that fairy dragon may be many things, but a halfling's familiar it is not.

Part of Nantambu culture seems to be always having an extra seat available at meals so if Kugu was visibly struggling after his adventure, the Samba's would happily offer his a seat at the table, at least for a few nights till he can get back on his webbed feet.

Sounds good to me, when do we start?

so it sounds like 1 episode will take around of week, maybe 2 of IRL posting? If I'm understanding it correctly that sounds good to me

But the time reference is one day, sometimes two or three. But not 4-8 weeks.

is this in character time or irl time?

Also,

@EltonJ: how long did you plan on each "episode" being? is each one like a pfs scenario where it 4-8 weeks is normal for what would take 4-5 hours irl?

or more like the quests where each one can take a week or 2?

This campaign is a T.V. type campaign. It's episodic in nature.

Ohhh! Rescued by halflings! Seems a great plot hook!

Zinnath would be quite a prize to poachers and exotic animal collectors. As an albino faerie dragon, he is rather unique. He is iridescent and pearly, but only in the white spectrum.

rescuing Zinnath could be the first episode, or we could start with it having been my most recent exploit, that I couldn't help but show my old friend Yumbu.

It's nice to be wanted!

I like, and have some experience with the shoulder mounted fairy dragon in a kingmaker game I was in almost a decade ago haha. It ended up having a place on the ruling council in our small nation. "head of non humanoid relations" or something like that iirc.

Any preference on how we met and got to working together? We could always say I was snooping around a warehouse I maybe probably shouldn't have been and found you in a crate haha.

Looks like eight of us, with everybody in? That’s a big party and a lot of backgrounds to entwine!

Yumbulika would probably know Nbazi (we’re both halflings living in Nantambu) and Ukube (also a Nantambu native, she would have heard of his exploits at Magaambya).

Agreed, from what I read if there are 2 of us here, there are only 898 more halflings in town. I Think its safe to say we at least grew up familiar with each other, attending the same basic classes and playing together? Nbazi is currently somewhat of a favored black sheep in his family and community because he likes to associated with less reputable folks than the upstanding traders his family comes from.

Zinnath would like to have a bipedal friend! Someone that he can ride on your shoulder. A spell caster would be ideal, as people might assume Zinnath is your familiar.

I already have a celestial baboon, why not a fairy dragon? having a laughing gas cone sprayer would certainly help in getting away from the aforementioned less reputable folk in a pinch.

I think the other main caster is Yumbulika (Can Nbazi call you Yumbi?; I imagine his friends would call him Baz.), but she might not like you depending on how snakelike your body shape is haha.

@Ukube, we might also have some familiarity if you ever worked as labor /porter and like Yumbulika, as a fellow native, I've likely heard of your exploits at the very least at the festivals. Although far warning, Nbazi might needle you for NOT being able to cast spells just as much as you needle him for not being musclebound haha

@Mongo, same goes for you, if its plausible you've ever been looking for honest labor work or protection its plausible we are aware of each others existence at least. If Mongo is interested in the kind of work that is neither entirely honest or dishonest, we almost certainly are aware of each other.

@Kikina, I imagine that while from Sargava you are in Nantambu now? or at least arriving through the gates on whatever day the plot starts?

@Inyoni and Kuga, I didn't see much in the way of background, are you also natives of Nantambu, or at least local to the city?

While I’m not personally opposed to the system I’m happy to forgo it too; And as far as Zinnay goes, I’m not worried either; after 1st level they’ll be just about our level anyways.

As far as background it seems like at least a few of us are native Nantambu so perhaps we are familiar with each other a bit? My family owns a trading company and I like to delve into the blackmarket and underbelly.

Submitting Nbazi Samba, A Halfling native to Nantambu.

Sounds great. Does he have any brothers or sisters?

Quote:
. . . elder brother and Father . . .
So he does have family.
He does, I imagine a mother as well; I can flesh them out with names and basic character traits if you'd like.

Here is the profile for Nbazi; It has his crunch and his background in it's about section.

DR34-M12 is able to jolt the Vesk, however he remains focused on Hi-C in front of him and swings his assault hammer, mightily crashing into Hi-C's ribcage, sending him flying into the wall! Hi-C falls prone from the heavy attack!

AWESOME BLOW!!!: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (16) + 8 = 241d6 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 81d6 ⇒ 1

"HAHA" roars Vrokilayo with a look of murder in his eye, "There, now I'm not in your way...And he's not in my way!" he says while looking directly at Justin as he swiftly closes in on Justin.


Hi-C= -8hp, -1NL, Prone

Vrokilayo takes 3 missiles to the face, and they only seem to enrage the Vesk more as he swings wildly at Hi-C screaming,"AARRRGG I EAT SMALL RAT!!!", but the Kasatha is able to dodge both blows.

1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (7) + 8 - 4 = 11

Seconds after the doors were blown open a hulking desk in thick red armor bursts through the door wielding a massive assault hammer. "AAAAAAARRRRGHHHHH DIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!!!!" he roars as he bursts through the door.
