CG's Dragon of Icespire Peak [IC]

Charwoman Gene

Adventurer
You are in a tavern in Neverwinter. A human man has just entered the place, wearing a huge backpack. He sits at the bar and mutters. "Can't believe I'm back here."

[Please keep RPing freely, this is just a mild adventure hook entering the bar.]

"Welcome to the Hawk and Child. There's a table empty next to that group there," Meadowlark says to the newcomer as she points with four empty drink glasses in her hand, plus the one she drank from. "I'll be back to take your order soon." She takes the tankards to the bar, separates the one she had drunk from and stashes it away where she keeps it during her shifts.

She takes a second to look at the size of her hands, and has a moment of hesitation. Nonsense. But they had suggested she join them on whatever it was they had planned. It would be something else.

She places the order the kobold had given, and in the meantime went and checked on the three humans dicing at table four.

"By the way, my name's Bella," the halfling woman says. She takes a seat at the table the other three are at. "How did you three meet?"

In a shy voice, and not knowing if Bella was including her in the question, Jeni says: “I liked her music and followed hem from the forest, then, I just had to introduce myself”. She giggles and takes a sip from her tea.

Bethrynna looked at Fitz. “Yes, but do humans not use wee to mean something else? Something like what this ale tastes like?” she said delicately, looking into her mug.

Then the newcomer halfling asked them how they met. “Well, this one,” Rynna gestured to Fitz with her mug, “stumbled drunkenly into my room upstairs thinking I was the tavern maid. I kindly helped him sober up by throwing him out the window into the horse trough. These two,” she gestured to Mina and Jeni, “happened to be arriving just then and got thoroughly soaked. From where do you hail?” she asked Bella. Her eyes clocked the man with the big backpack entering, but he seemed harmless enough.

"I'm from a town down the coast," Bella says. "Nothing special. My parents own a textile mill, a family business. I had to get away from how boring it was."

"I left my village to train in a bard collage here in Neverwinter, fancy place they taught me so much. A lot of my fellow students seemed very distracted hooking up. so it gave me more time to learn. After that I wasn't sure where to go so I was looking for work, and well, Fitz here 'fell out of the sky'" She gives a little laugh. She continues to tear off pieces of steaming hot bread and dunk it in the soup soaking up liquid. "From there Rynna came down to apologize to us and we all just kinda made friends. Shortly after a job came up clearing giant rats out of a basement and we learned we can fight well together."

"Only the prudes," Fitz explained Ryn regarding the word 'wee" being used for urine, "But it comes from th'same root word for 'small' - the other waste bein' yer 'big', if ye follow me. Naw, 'small' is how I mean it. Hahaw!"

Then he listened to the tales, nodding and chuckling and added, "I was a wee bit arse over tit at the time, so I couldn't fault her for it. No harm was done, excepting my pride, but lucky fer us, I've none of that, really."

When asked where he was from, he answered, "Here an' there. I don't right remember where I began."

Serpa listened to the tale for about the tenth time and then came his turn. "I was with the rats, took them all afternoon but they finally caught me."

He still could't quite understand why the story seemed to change slightly with each telling. But there you have it. Serpa's line never changed, but that didn't seem to reduce the other's amusement in the retelling in the slightest.

"They dunked me into a bucket full of soapy water and scrubbed me till my scales were shiny."

Bethrynna chuckled as Serpa finished the story. “I am from a village in the Moonwood,” she said. “North of Silverymoon. I just finished my bladesinging training, then was told that my father was last seen in the Neverwinter area, so I came looking for him.” Unconsciously she toyed with the end of a similarly marked purple sash at her waist. She shook her head. “Rats. It’s so...beneath me,” she said with a sigh. “And it didn’t even pay well.”

"Well enough fer us all t'drink though, eh?" said Fitz with a big, infectious smile as he held up his mug, drained it, and added, "Awright then, here's me off to take a ... a wee. Haw! A 'wee'!"

"Does he have to tell us every time?" She finishes her drink and looks around the tavern, "I really hope we find work soon, I'm sure these people are getting tired of me singing the same songs over and over."

Serpa watches Fitz swagger off and then seems to make a connection.

"I don't want to be the dragons that 'wee'..." he says uncomfortably.

"Even dragons have to don't they?" She ponders for a second then gives a slight shudder. "Still I do agree, I don't think that's the name I'd like to go by."
 

Looking over his shoulder, Fitz called, "Aye, I think ye've ruined it fer me, as well. I had meant small, of course. But now that I think on it, we shouldn't call ourselves 'small' either! We'll figger it out, I'm sure."

Bethrynna chuckled at Bella’s joke. “I think you might just fit in,” she said, sipping her passable ale. “I suppose I should introduce myself, too. Rynna Silverfrond,” she told Bella.

Rynna looked around the tavern. They’d been here long enough to get to know most of the regulars. “Mina,” Ryn said to the tiefling bard, “Shag, Wed, or End.” Her eyes scanned the crowd. “Rayne the blacksmith’s son,” she said, spotting the young, muscled, fairly handsome human male drinking with his friends, “Jona, behind the bar,” her eyes went to the half-elf at the bar, “or…” she scanned the crowd again, “that new waitress, what was her name? Meadowlark.”

OOC: That's just mean


Mina looks to Rynna when she hears her name called.

“Shag, Wed, or End.”

Mina rolls her eyes she's heard this game before from the other bards in training, she's never liked it.

“Rayne the blacksmith’s son,”

Even though Mina was going to protest she can't help but look when Rynna points out the young man., Mina gives a almost imperceptable shake of her head.
“Jona,...”

Mina doesn't turn her head this time lost in thought.

"...Meadowlark"

Mina quickly turns head to Meadowlark, then to Rynna, she's visibly shocked and confused. "I... You can't... It's a stupid game, I think I need to go to bed." She gets up from the table and starts toward the stairs, but quickily spots Meadowlark in front of her. She freezes and not sure where to go she heads for the door to go outside.
