The gang sorted out their stowaway issue so they headed full speed ahead to Calsten to pick up Bucky’s favorite bard – the famous Jett Razor. Things are not perfect and sunny in the port city what with the rumors of an incurable disease floating about. Mostly whispers and gossip surround this mysterious sickness some are calling ‘The Gremp” but King Titus Harper is not taking any chances. Luckily, Nyx and Jaela will have his back in case things need to get dicey. They are tight like that.

The story opens on a pile of dead monkey. [[Nyx]] has claimed [[Bananas Foster]]'s skin (which required no effort to remove) with plans to make a cloak of it. Then goth [[Jaela]] goes to put the horrific remains into the meat locker only to find it empty. She demands that [[Winston]] puts any future dead bodies in there so she can maybe create a flesh golem for [[Thom the Dragonborn]] to return to.

After their victory over the demon that had inhabited [[Merendithas Bearcharger]]. King Titus Harper introduces himself to the apeling who helped them with their victory. The apeling is not impressed. He introduces himself as [[Bananas Foster]] who is 503 years old (despite the life expectancy of an apeling being 60). Bananas asks if he can accompany the group to the wedding. He also offers the group some wood (although he doesn't know who's) to help fix the boat. Once Jaela and Nyx have their backs turned, Bananas knocks out [[Timpleton]] and disguises himself as Timpleton.
  
[[King Titus Harper|Harper]] and Jaela discuss what has been happening in the last few years. Harper admits that he had to turn away refugees when he was rebuilding [[Pelor's Hope]]. Jaela still refuses to discuss her last few years. Then they get a call from [[Bucky]], who tells them where they can find [[Jett Razor]] (at The Poxy Wench). When asked about [[Aludra]], Bucky admits that she has been crying. When Bucky finds out that Jaela is going to the wedding, he says that she isn't allowed to come. Harper convinces Bucky that Jaela isn't actually there, then Bucky hangs up.
+
When they get back to the boat, they hear Harper complaining about how rude Bananas was. Bananas (disguised as Timpleton) attempts to convince Harper that he wasn't such a bad guy. Then continues to try to convince him to let him stay on the boat. Bananas goes with [[Winston]] (who is besties with Timpleton) back to the village where he changes back to himself. Winston carries Bananas and Timpleton back to the boat.
  
The party reaches [[Calsten]] and Jaela heads off on her own. [[Timpleton]] expresses concern over Jaela's behavior as they reached town and offers to tail her. Harper and Nyx go to the center of town and meet a man named Lomax who takes them to the leader of the city Erath Darkhammer(sp?). Harper states that he is aware that this town has been afflicted by a disease called [[the grimp]]. He expresses concern that Erath is not taking proper measures with it.
+
Harper expresses concern that [[Pyre]] might consider this island to be in his domain. Bananas says that (as he is 503) he goes way back with Pyre, and they are mortal enemies. Bananas says that if he doesn't get to go on the boat, then Pyre will likely fry his village to a crisp.
  
Harper and Nyx reach The Poxy Wench and see that Jaela is already there waiting for them. Her and Harper have an aside and Jaela confides that [[Erathis]] told Jaela to return to her, but she said "no". She then reveals that she now follows [[The Raven Queen]]. Harper tells her not to spread death in his realm and to not fuck up the wedding. They also bro out.
+
Then Winston says that they've built a funeral pyre for Bearcharger and asks Harper to give a eulogy. Harper does so, and in addition says some words for [[Tad]]. Nyx shares a memory of punching Tad in the face. They may not be entirely sincere about his memory though, since they refer to him as "Thad". Harper turns around after his eulogy and notices that Bananas Foster is missing.
  
They all go inside and do shots and toast to death, society, monkey cloaks, and bros for life. They see a lone figure on stage singing. He goes to the bar for a drink and the group introduces themselves to him and find out he is Jett Razor. They convince him to play the wedding because it will be fun. Then two individuals named Babyface Mulligan and Bungee the Beetle come in wearing suits looking for Jett. They say that he owes money to The Castiglianimorcelloderegenini.

Story

After their victory over the demon that had inhabited Merendithas Bearcharger. King Titus Harper introduces himself to the apeling who helped them with their victory. The apeling is not impressed. He introduces himself as Bananas Foster who is 503 years old (despite the life expectancy of an apeling being 60). Bananas asks if he can accompany the group to the wedding. He also offers the group some wood (although he doesn't know who's) to help fix the boat. Once Jaela and Nyx have their backs turned, Bananas knocks out Timpleton and disguises himself as Timpleton.

Then continues to try to convince him to let him stay on the boat. Bananas goes with Winston (who is besties with Timpleton) back to the village where he changes back to himself. Winston carries Bananas and Timpleton back to the boat.

Harper expresses concern that Pyre might consider this island to be in his domain. Bananas says that (as he is 503) he goes way back with Pyre, and they are mortal enemies. Bananas says that if he doesn't get to go on the boat, then Pyre will likely fry his village to a crisp.
