Potential players should definitely jump to the conclusion. … .. . All right, still here? Not all adventuring groups are radiant heroes. Some are simply greedy bullies – not downright evil overlord-level nasties, but unpleasant people nonetheless. This certainly holds true for “Whistler’s Troupe.” The group consists of the following persons: Griffo, a nasty halfling bard.
