Gold Collection[edit | edit source]

Goldie the Circus Bear loves to share golden treats and surprises through the big top crowds, but the real amazement comes when the lovely lady inside the burly suit makes a quick appearance -- just long enough for a wink and a smile -- before unleashing a dazzling display of golden pyrotechnics and dancing away to spread more joy throughout Newerth.

General[edit | edit source]

This fun furball recently stumbled upon a lush field of potent catnip in the Forests of Caldavar, and now he is ready to play with anything that dares to walk, move a finger, or even glance in his direction. Be forewarned, though, he's too jacked-up to worry about keeping his claws sheathed, so it's probably best to just stand still until his tail stops twitching. But that might make him even crazier, so it looks like we're all going to be scratching posts until the effect wears off and he passes out in a sunbeam.
Folks travel from miles around to see Big Top Benzi do her astounding tricks, like jousting crowns off petrified patrons' heads with her magical lance and stomping up a massive cloud of dust in the three rings. But the real show-stopper is when she leaps clear out of the big top tent, becomes a mere speck in the sky, then plummets back to Newerth with a hearty laugh and not a scratch upon her or her steed. Sometimes an unwary bystander gets crushed beneath the hooves, but that's the price of show business!
Controlling drunken, boisterous crowds is child's play compared to conquering the beast within for this mysterious Lion Tamer. Hailing from The Savannahs, this scarred and stoic performer joined the traveling troupe in order to keep moving and live among others who have a true wild side. A side that must be tamed at all costs, for unleashing it upon innocent bystanders can only result in tragedy and persecution--something this man and his beasts unfortunately know all too well.
