Bear Backed Troupe
A troupe of players who were quickly rising to fame. They were to receive their ‘big break’ playing for the Eladrin of Fallcrest, but unfortunately disaster struck them on the road – their usually placid bear ‘Bonsai’ became enraged, broke free of them, and fled. They tried to track him down, however when they finally caught up to Bonsai they found him slain. They attempted tracking down the killers, but hearing the roars of another angry bear, and later on the frightening whinnies of something straight from the depths of hell (the trainer swore he saw something terrible with red eyes) they fled in turn.
The troupe has made its way to Fallcrest, but they are in mourning, and without a bear, they will not be able to perform, and indeed they have been locked out of the Eladrin sector of the city.
Matt added: the timing for this loss of the bear exactly matches the time when the party encountered the two bears attracted by Vilma’s lure hidden in their pack. The lure must have gotten to poor Bonsai…
