[An excerpt from the Officially Unofficial History of the Circus of the Last Days! that documents the last time the circus came to Baldur's Gate.]

Dumpy Dumpling was the headline act, as he had been for a decade. His performance was the usual - firework farts, chicken-snapping, and his trademark pie-in-the-

ear trick. The crowd laughed, and clapped but Dumpy lacked spark - his heart wasn't in it. Dumpy called for a volunteer. An unassuming man with reddish-hair and a shy smile volunteered.


And then everything changed.


The man commanded the stage with the sheer joy of his presence. His one-liners were lightning quick, his comebacks even more so. The crowd were enthralled, myself included, as we laughed till we cried. By the end of the show, I had forgotten I was there to see Dumpy.

Lucretious, the circus' ever-charismatic leader is no fool. She saw the star this man would be, even in his rough, unpolished state. She offered him a job then and there. When he bashfully accepted, the crowd erupted in applause. I knew, even then, that I had just witnessed history.


For Norris Greenie was the man's name. Or, as he would come to be better known...


Dribbles the Clown.
