"Pshaw! Caw!" Oolong preens. "What can his family offer him that we can't? Do his kids fly and eat eyeballs with panache? I don't think so."

Ideas are good. Eyes are better.

As Ruanna crashes to the ground, Oolong swoops down.

"Can I eat her eye? Please?"

PaizoCon is actually online this year... But yes, pausing for weekend would be awesome.

Oolong flies up to the roof, just to show off. "Okay, so we threw a doll over the wall. Big deal. But we really do want to have the picnic with you, and get a chance to meet you. What do you say?"

"Yeah, the boss doesn't have much time on Wednesdays either."

"I don't wanna move rocks. Let the other circus people do some of the boring stuff. I wanna explore ruins, even if I have to do it with that creepy doll..." Oolong peers sidelong at Mr. Splinters.

Oolong continues to preen and gobble down way too much of Chani's rice.

"Now, what the heck is that supposed to mean? Don't pay attention to Mr. Splinters. He's a blockhead. Now me, I'm the gorgeous familiar. Can I have some of your rice?"

Oolong perches right on Chani's shoulder.

The link to your Earn Income Calculator is broken.

"And I will make the best decisions for everyone, especially Mr. Splinters!" Oolong says, preening.

"Why does nobody go for the eyes? They're the tastiest bit!"

"What kind of a corvid are you?" Oolong asks Song. "Don't you know you should have gone for her eyes?"

"I'm not just a new addition," Oolong says to Tahala. "I can subtract as well!"

"No! And look, if you don't snap out of it, I'll..." The familiar thinks for a moment. "I'll sic Mr. Splinters on you! We'll double-team you until you cheer up!"

"Are you still moping?" Her familiar hops to her shoulder. "You need to snap out of it. It's depressing to be around. You know what you need? Spells! Magic! It's time you started learning more!"

"Caw!" Oolong preens himself. "It looks like Song got it wrong, of course. Here's the real deal. If she takes Basic Witchcraft, she can pick up that Lesson of Life, and get Fast Healing for you, and one more ability for me. That means that I could also offer her a Cantrip Connection and let her use two different cantrips a day, provided they are on the occult list. So that could allow her a bit more diversity with her cantrips, and make me more awesome AND get you more healing"

Then Oolong looks at you. "OR she could pick up two more prepared spells a day. BORING, right?"

"Flowers? Chocolate? What do you think this is, Crystalhue?" The raven hops on her shoulder. "That sounds like the most boring time ever!"

"But what if they have cleavers?"

"It sort of depends on what kind of boring you mean, woodenhead," Oolong says to Splinters. "I think it shows a certain... spark!"

"And nothing could possibly go wrong with this plan..." The raven says, shaking his head.

"My name is Oolong! And I am here for you!." The bird cocks his head and then hops onto Song-of-Air's shoulder. "You're a bit of a mess, but that's why I'm here. I have so much to teach you!"

"Ha! I'm not lazy, I'm on vacation!"

Oolong means black dragon or black tea, so yes, this will be a Black Crow!

"Caw, there's no need to crow over bird puns!"

So I think that I will reuse Oolong -- it seems a fine name for crow familiar. I was thinking about taking the red feathered crow to complement Song's red cape and calling it Ruby Tuesday, but Golarian calls Tuesday 'Toilday' which is really not what this bird is about. I doubt that Oolong will do do much in combat other than make the occasional wisecrack. He's a spellbook and a tutor, not a combatant, thank you very much.

Blake if you can come up with a good way to introduce Oolong into the circus that would be great. It could be that he just arrives -- I picked the Fate patron as the most likely for a Tengu -- or it could be related to upcoming plot.

"Woof!" Oolong wags his tail in excitement!

Will, Good Hope: 1d20 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 1 + 2 = 4


Oh boy! We get to run now!

Woof! Oolong wags his tail, his tongue hanging out!

Yes, pet me, pet me, pet me!

I don't know what I am agreeing to, but I'm wagging my tail! Maybe they'll give me a treat!

"Woof" With a running start, the dog leaps after his mistress, tail wagging and tongue hanging out!

Oolong is getting nowhere! He barks anxiously. "Woof!"

Second try...
Doggy Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 2 = 16
Doggy Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4

As he feels his claws lose purchase, he jumps to try to hit the impact foam!

Take Ten Doggie Swim: 10 + 2 = 12


See what a good dog I am?

Oolong wags his tail as he swims Cup to Mr. Peppers. When he pulls himself up on the ice, he makes sure to shake all his water off on the elf and bark excitedly.

Doggie Swim?: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (18) + 2 = 20


Oolong dogpaddles forward happily, excited at all the screen time he's finally getting.

Oolong barks nervously as D drops large rocks in the water.

"Woof! Woof-woof!"

Swim in there? While he's dropping rocks everywhere? The dog's ears and tail droop as he looks at Cup with big and sad brown eyes. Uh-uh. That's scary.

He hides behind Cup and refuses to enter the water until D is done flinging rocks.

If D stops flinging rocks:

Oolong finally listens to Cup, lets her mount, and then swims them both across.
Oolong's Swim: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 2 = 17


Oh boy! Oh boy! Someone's gonna pet me! Oh boy!

Oolong slobbers all over Mr. Pepper's hand, and wags his tail in excitement.

Oolong wags his tail happily, despite the nasty stench coming off the cliff face. His person, Cup, is paying attention to him. Everyone's paying attention to him! He licks Cup's hand, just to let her know that he's there to help.


Oolong's Survival: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (14) + 5 = 19

He sniffs around, nostrils flaring as he catches the acrid scent of goblin and bile again.
