Ravenloft: Curse of Strahd
Half-elf bard in search of acts for his sideshow
Several months ago, a colorfully dressed half-elf bard came to Barovia in a carnival wagon, with a pet monkey on his shoulder. A carnival ringmaster in search of new actors, he began regaling locals with tales of distant lands.
Until recently, the bard had been staying at the Blue Water Inn taking advantage of Urwin Martikov‘s generosity and good nature. When he first arrived, he was accompanied by a monkey named Piccolo. The monkey wasn’t welcome at the inn, so Rictavio gave it to the local toymaker, Gadof Blinsky.
Rictavio left Vallaki on his carnival wagon headed west after rounding up his escaped tiger.
