Since there's this nifty MERC group now, how about wacky and wild stories?|
For example: The first year I did the Jester for Madrigal, we had a script worked out and entertainment and all sorts of fun stuff. However, Shiney didn't know much about Madrigal dinners and so would get nervous when people were just eating.
I had been told, as the Jester, two things:
1) You will perform no more than three times, so have about three 4-5 minutes "skits" that amuse and engage.
2) You will perform these skits when the King demands.
So, I got together a wooing contest, a mock sword fight and....something else I don't remember.
Now, Shiny was the King and, as I said, was strangely uncomfortable with silence, fearing people weren't having a good time. I don't remember how many times he wuold yell: "JESTER!" *clap clap* "Entertain us!"
The end result was me doing prat falls, hoping not to kill myself, to end the night.
