(Falkare) Cute and Scaly. You found a velociraptor egg. With proper care, it hatches within the next week, but since it is away from its natural habitat, its growth is stunted.
It may not be attack, defend, or provide aid in combat, being no deadlier than a domesticated dog or cat. However, through patience and practice, it can be taught simple tricks and name recognition if trained and fed for a minimum of 20 downtime days.
The Thrill of Victory. By claiming victory in both the dinosaur race and the gladiator’s arena, you gain a bit of fame from the citizens within the walls of Port Nyanzaru. Once per day, you may gain advantage on a single Charisma (Persuasion) check when dealing with any residents within the Market, Merchant’s, or Harbor Wards.
Recap- Yeenoghu’s stinking crotch. Orbus knew a man once, an initiate of some filthy sect or another, who coined that turn of phrase. That’s what ran through his mind upon arriving at Port Nyanzaru. The air saw so thick with moisture his hair clung to his scalp like a wet towel, the smell of unwashed bodies assailed him, the sights and sounds of animals unheard of was all a little overwhelming. Looking around is almost seemed like the town was on fire and he had visions of dark rites for the Eternal Flame but what he had first seen as smoke became clear to him, swarms of biting insects worse that the filthiest swamps along the Sword Coast. Worst of all, though, was the oppressive heat. Not since he earned his scars did he remember such a feeling. Yeenoghu’s stinking crotch is right; here, we call it Chult.
It was plain the team would require some days to adjust to their new environment. After teleporting the party to this city Syndra their patron stepped away to seek a guide for adventures ahead. The party sought out a representative of the Lord’s Alliance, Klevan, who provided them with a simple mission. Smugglers were upsetting the proper and directed flow of trade into the city and the party set out to find out where they were doing business. They found a tunnel outside of the city, bluffed their way in and navigated a series of traps and puzzles where they came across Sanuya and her band. Battle ensued and the party stopped the smugglers and picked up a piece of some artifact of interest. The party’s Wizard also found a very large egg which he has committed to hatching.
The team went on to aid the Zhentarum agent, who wanted them to participate in some local sport. Poe enrolled them in a Dinosaur race. With skill and finesse the party embarrassed the Green Vipers and claimed a victory. In true Zhentarum fashion they then promised the object of Poe’s desire to the Harpers in exchange for a larger payoff and then entered the arena. They plucked a Kenku and established dominance over his reptile pets, claiming ultimate victory in the local games. They won the respect of Kwayothe and earned a tidy reward for themselves.
