    Around the Corner from the Hanged Man

    OOC
    This is not an adventure thread--it's just a temporary alternative spot for socializing while the Hanged Man's bartender is being held hostage and a huge fight is raging outside the tavern (see Protection.)

    A kobold and a shifter, both armed, are making their way towards the Hanged Man when they are surprised by a loud crash and a gush of flames, apparently coming from around the corner ahead. "What the--is that a dragon?" yelps the kobold, catching a glimpse of something rapidly diving through the air to disappear behind a building.

    A nearby street vendor shrugs. "Big kerfuffle going on outside the Hanged Man," he says. "Odd how these things happen, eh? Anyway I got rat-on-a-stick, snake-on-a-stick, lizard-on-a-stick, locusts-on-a-stick, frog-on-a-stick. With or without spicy sauce. How about it?"

    "But--" the kobold is interrupted by another loud crash and some angry shouting. "Actually, I'm starving. How about you, Kaeysari?--Wait a second, did you say rat-on-a-stick? That's not what--don't you have any normal food?"

    "One snake, please," says Kaeysari. "With sauce."
    As the vendor hands the snake over, Papolstaanas looks dubiously at it and at his friend.
    "What?" Kaeysari says. "It's better than army chow. Besides, after what we've been through with snakes recently, it's nice to have the upper hand on one."

    Papolstaanas the kobold continues to regard his friend with a horrified expression. As Kaeysari opens her wolfish mouth to take a large bite of snake, he actually winces.

    "We've been up to our armpits in snake poison for two days and you actually want to eat one?" he squeaks. "What did they feed you in the army?" He is briefly distracted by a yelp of pain and some angry shouts emanating from around the corner. He turns back to Kaeysari. "Um, how is it?"

    Kaeysari chews heavily on her "food". "It's a bit tough," she says, "but the sauce covers up the burnt taste."

    She leans forward to look around the corner. "Wonder what that's all about."

    Papolstaanas makes a brief move towards the area where all the noise is coming from, then holds back. He shivers. "I--don't think I want to find out," he mutters, his twitchy nervousness contrasting oddly with the unflappable manner of his friend. He examines the vendor's wares with some hesitation. "Well, maybe the frog would be--aagh, no, I really can't. Do you have anything to drink?"

    "Nope," replies the vendor.

    "No?" asks Papolstaanas. "Don't people ever need something to wash their, um, snake down with?"

    The vendor shrugs. "There's usually a tavern open around here," he replies helpfully.

    Papolstaanas sighs and turns back to Kaeysari. "Do you think anyone's in the Hanged Man? Maybe I could climb in a window..."

    "There's probably someone in there," Kaeysari says. "After all, they could come through the portal from Bacarte, even if they can't get through the door."

    She finishes her snake and starts using the skewer as a makeshift toothpick.

    "I guess you could try a window, if you like, but this business out front may be over soon enough. Also, there may be more of the fight inside."
