[Tavern Thread] The Dunn Wright Inn

Aura

Explorer
Charity, Human Female
Dressed in a long off-white tunic with red trim and symbology, a simple pair of pants and a braided cloth belt, a young woman steps into the inn. She stops, surveys the place a moment, hand resting on the pommel of her dagger, as if by habit. Finally she pulls up to the bar. "A beer?" she asks of the bartender as he dutifully cleans out a mug.

Grog, Bartender

Grog sets the mug he was wiping off down on the counter and grabs another from under the bar. He fills it from the tap and sets it in front of Charity.

"Miz Char'ty." There seems to be a note of respect in his voice that is lacking in his normal interactions with patrons. "See ya didn't die dis time." He's quiet which isn't unusual but the long look he gives Charity is. Finally he nods and speaks in a low voice meant to be heard by Charity alone.

"Yer parents woulda been proud of ya."

In strolls Robert looking around the tavern for a familiar face. Recognizing none with the exception of a certain red head, he walks over to her. "Already starting the heavy drinking? Hope you have some coin left from the last job." Robert teases Charity. "Got myself a new belt from the payment, see?" He shows her his new purchase before turning to the bartender "For me a milk please."

The curious halfling finishes his libation, and is now half full of liquid courage. He taps on the counter, signalling the barkeep "Hey Grog old buddy!" As the creature twice Francis' size approaches and quite forgetful of the previous scowl, he asks "Who are those two? I am talking about Big Red and her heavy drinking pal?" He flashes his most prize-winning smile in hopes of eliciting an answer.

[sblock=OOC]Is it possible for me to get the cool picture and heading for my posts too? Or this that a different membership level? This thread really isn't for bluffing/diplomacy/local knowledge checks either, is it?[/sblock]

No special rank needed for that, maybe you need 10 posts so you can link to pictures...

This is how they do their pictures (remove the two * ofc)

Grog, Bartender

Grog turns to the halfling (who still hasn't given him his name) and peers at the halfling's empty mug. "Another?" He looks over at the red head and her friend. "Dat be Miz Char'ty an' Robert Kronbark. Ya want more'n dat ya gotta be askin' fer yerself. They done sum jobs so gettin' advice from 'em be a good idea."

[sblock=OOC]The pics were done exactly as Lindeloef describes. For the headings you can just put something in the title field above the text box like I did for Grog or you can use bold tags and/or color tags (or whatever color). For colors, a lot of us use the legacy skin to the forum which has a black background so using dark colors (dark blues or purples) is really hard to read. Just something to be aware of.[/sblock]

Lindeloef, do you know how to do this?:

Charity, Human Female
At the mention of her parents, the redhead gets a rather surprised look on her face. However, it quickly softens, and she quietly replies, "Thanks for saying so, Grog. I don't know if this whole 'adventuring' gig will ever help me find them, but if I do some good along the way, then it will be time well spent."

With that, Charity looks wistfully across the room for a moment before Robert comes into her field of view to chat. "Oh, hey, Robert… how are things? New belt? I haven't done anything with my money, yet. If I step into that Pearl place I'm sure the owner will make it his personal responsibility to relieve me of nearly all my gold." Grinning, she reaches out and pokes at the sturdy leather of his new belt, "Hunh. Am I to guess it does more than the run-of-the-mill belt?"

Hearing Grog and the halfling's exchange about her, the young Venzan cocks her head to looks over the newest patron to the Dunn Wright Inn. Curious green eyes look him over from head to toe. Turning herself in her chair to face him, smiling gently and giving him a chance to speak.

"Oh, 'ello there Red! How are you and your companion doing on this fine evening? Me name's Francis. Francis John. I see you know our mutual acquaintance here, Grog. May I have the pleasure of yours?" He gives both of them a warm smile, making sure some of it is even directed towards the barkeep's direction.

"Well," Charity begins, leaning back against the bar and crossing her legs, "It is as Grog said. My name is Charity. It's very nice to meet you, Francis. Although, I don't understand why you ask for information that has already been freely given. Hunh, curious.

"Although, you can call me Red if you like," the young woman continues, taking a sip of her beer and setting it down, still mostly full. "Although, in that regard… you might not be the first… and probably not the last. It's your choice."

Francis John III, Halfling

The proud little halfling starts vociferously wagging his finger in the air. "Wait, wait, wait a minute! Even though our fine friend Grog here told me your name, there is always room for proper introductions! Charity and Robert it shall be." The bushy-haired halfling takes a moment to regain composure. "There now.... we have all met, and are now friends for life. That includes you Grog!"

Francis spends a half a minute approaching Charity and Robert, and holds his arm high in order to shake hands. He leaps onto the counter, and offers his hand to Grog as well. From atop the bar, he proudly proclaims "Here, here! Dinner is on me! Grog, on my tab please: your finest teacakes, brown butter bread, and some delicious acorn squash with some drizzled honey. Bring enough for the four of us!" He hops back down to his stool, and downs his mug of the good stuff. "Another pint for the pint-size too!"

Throughout the halfling's overture, Charity's posture becomes less relaxed and more guarded, as she literally pulls away from the speaker. The redhead eyes Francis carefully as he extends his hand, and in a uncomfortable pause, waits until he retracts it once again. Upon completion of his words, she finally speaks. "Thank you for the offer, Francis. However, I shall respectfully decline," she explains, and offers no elaboration.

Too engrossed in his own frivolity, Francis doesn't notice Charity rebuke his pleasantries until she speaks at the end. He gives her the most awkward blank stare, and his bottom lip quivers a bit. Quite taken aback from the denial, he absolutely shrinks back into his seat. Timidly, Francis repeats his order for the drink, but cancels all of the rest. "I thought we could have made fabulous friends..."

The halfling's eyes light up at Robert's voice.
"Little?! I can direct you to at least a dozen of the fairest maidens in Venza alone who would happily dispute that claim!" He smiles back his new friend, and continues "But if Charity wants to pout, let her be. The rest of us three can still celebrate the simple joys of life. Grog, the party is back on!" Francis claps his hands together in new-found delight. "And Charity my dear, please feel free to join us in the merry-making!"

Mug in hand, Charity leans against the bar again, looking out into the room. She makes no particular effort to join any particular merriment for the time being, nor to avoid it. Upon the halfling's reiteration of his offer, she merely smiles and nods politely, but offers no overt agreement.

The young guard's eyes scan the room, although it is unclear what she is looking for, if anything. She sips her beer gingerly--it's apparent it will last her a long time at this rate.

The door swings open, revealing another newcomer to the bar. He is a half-orc, though shorter and far less intimidating than the massive bartender. His features are bestial and his skin a deep green, but his scalp is clean-shaven and his beard carefully trimmed. He wears a well-traveled coat over a chain shirt, and is decked out in a mixture of lethal-looking weaponry and exotic glass alchemical gear. He steps over to the bar with the air of one who knows the establishment.

"Afternoon," he greets the bartender. "A mead, please." The bartender seems about to offer the good stuff, but sees his patron shake his head. He obligingly passes over the requested mead.

His customer nods his gratitude and pays, then takes a look about the bar, perhaps seeking a familiar face.

[sblock=Back to LPF]
Hi All -- Back to LPF, after a break of a little over a year. Missed you guys! Iago (Alchemist 6) and Larissa (Cleric 6/Fighter 1) are available for games again.

Iago has a new post in his home thread here explaining his absence and his return.

[sblock=Francis]If you click 'reply' to a post that uses the formatting you're curious about, you can see how they did it. In my case, what I'm doing is using: [align=left]URL of picture here[/align] and the text goes to the right by default. There is also a [section] command (with usual trailing command) that you can use to establish groups of objects.

On another note, and perhaps of more importance, the game The Road to Tritower is available to you if you wish to play. I say this because the next introductory game may be quite a while away--being the first one to create a new character after the DWI clears out of low levels can result in a long-ish wait. Let me know either way--we will need to move promptly on this if you are interested.

PS: Your last post's non-brown text was very hard to see for those of us using the legacy styles with a black background. This sometimes happens as a side effect when you cut and paste. You can fix that by either by specifically choosing the color 'automatic' or removing all formatting and color from text you don't want to have a specific color (it's the button one to the right of the upper left button in the editor.)[/sblock]

[sblock=mfloyd3]Welcome to LPF! (Or, more accurately, welcome back, although it feels odd for me to say it that way.) I added Iago to the DWI on the Adventures page for you.[/sblock]
