Is there any chance you are also taking applications for bar flies?

I can do a really good "Cliff Clavin" character if you need one.

We Are The Many... We Are The One... We Are THE WAERD !!!

Bar fly isn't an intended job, but your continued patronage would be greatly appreciated. Visit enough and everyone will come to know which seat is yours :)

Love this. I can't fill a position but I will definitely be a patron!

Either way, thank you for taking the time to read it! Hope you have an awesome day, and should you ever stop by the establishment throw me a message :)

I wake up at the crack of noon. Eat a breakfast of fried otterbear bacon, and mystery eggs (note to self, figure out what that nest belongs to). Then I throw a light but tightly linked chain mail shirt on, and pull a baggy tunic over it. Bolt resistant clothing is a must in the oasis. I throw a skin of mead, laced with trison tranquilizers, into my pack, toss it over my shoulder, and head to work.

The Oasis is a beauty to behold. At all hours of the day, scantily clad females from every tribe can be found dancing in front of the entrance, each vying for the coveted position atop the mailbox. Warriors duel for glory, bragging rights, and the occasional guild invite, in the worn paths that wind to and from the tavern. New arrivals to the realm frequently meet their friends here, as it is an established landmark, somewhat safe from brigands. And of course, those merchants that lack the funding (or are prevented by law) to open a proper store front, shout out their sales to those that pass. Ah, my home away from home.

I glide though the entrance, with a nod at the brudvir bouncer. Not usually one for conversation, but on a good night, he freely distributes the wealth found on those that try to start an impromptu fight club. Just a moon ago, he gave one of the serving wenches matching earrings, made of gold incisors.

Ignoring those initial jeers as I clamber on stage, I toss my bag to the ground near my stool, and take a seat. I then open my bag, remove the dummy within, sit him on my lap, and start the show. For the next several hours, I start religious arguments with Aren the dummy, and we insult various patrons that gain our attention. I play the straight man, while Aren drunkenly slurs pickup lines to a redheaded lass that might not be a lass. The crowd loves it, and throws coins, the occasional gem, and the far too frequent dagger up at the stage.

When the show finally comes to an end, I carry Aren down to the bar, toss him on a stool, and order a couple of drinks. Eventually Aren sits up, asks where we are, and grabs a handful of nuts from the bar.

I tell him to never mind where we are, pour him a mug of mead from the skin I brought, and point him towards the redheaded "dame" he was hitting on earlier.

I spend the rest of the night enjoying the free drinks sent over by members of the audience, and make sure that Aren safely finds his way into my pack to pass out, after the redhead brings him back. I'd feel kinda bad if anything (else) happened to him. He's a nice enough chap. Besides, it's hard to find a good replacement kypiq in this region.

Vandals took my land.

Oh that's awesome, I call Norm! hehe

I obviously love Vandiir and want to visit frequently.

You can count on me endeavoring to be a supplier for whenever I drop in town.

Heck, I hear the Immortal Vault is great during the Longest Night, so you can expect me sending over convoys to serve the interests of adventurers coming through.

I'll be visiting as often as possible!

12/25/2018 6:38:29 PM #9

I hope to visit your tavern some day maybe you'll get to host the Scedecim! Collect enough nice features to your duky/capital and I'll bet it won't be hard for you to host it at least once.

Being normal is vastly overrated!

Glad to see the tavern in the hands of someone unsettled, likely makes ti a lot less stressful, the fact that it was set to a specific point seamed odd to me.

(less I miss-understood the taverns details)

Hope you make the best of it.

All the apples belong to me

Why would it be stressful if it was tied to a Duchy that is part of a Kingdom? You think it will be the only one?
