Female Gnome Bard
Shakespeare by the Sea.
“I am an actor sir, not some bawdy barroom dancer. I will have you know I was classically trained in the gnomish school of thespian arts at the prestigious academy of Sir Cobble Bottle britches himself. Where I had the honor of being directly trained by his fourth assistant’s key grip’s second dogsbody and had the honor of witnessing the master himself…as he rode past in his carriage, from a distance of no more than 300 yards – on two separate occasions!”
Here are some of the more popular roles played by the Actress of Annihilation, the Performer of Pain, the Thespian with Death’s Mien – Perrywinkle Black:
A true misfortunate. This poor human girl was carried off by pirates and no matter what unspeakable things they have done to her, their threats are even more unspeakable and she dares not run away. Won’t someone save this poor girl!
A flamboyant gnome illusionist gambler whose mannerisms Perrywinkle made a study of when staying on the same ship.
A savage pigmy hailing from an island beyond the charted seas, Flay is known for her love of torture and particle-free sentences. She is never seen without her signature mask which she claims was made by an elder of her tribe to “keep the bad thing in”
A strange Alchemists who has enlisted on the ship to keep the crew supplied with gunpowder and other needed sundries in return for funding and travel to the locations needed to collect the raw materials her experiments require. Mrs. Apples is quite reclusive and rarely seen. She frequently makes references to her husband Mr. Apples in conversation though there is no record of him ever boarding the ship. Sometimes you can hear two distinctively different voices argue from her quarters though.
