    Karaglen giggles for the first time in awhile at the licking, finding it very hard to resist.
    The wolf is huge, compared to her, so the lick probably encompasses most of her scaley little face.

    Crissellea jumps slightly when Jacob starts to talk to her. " O-oh. I'm Crissellea, Crissellea Lachonues. " She replies and offers a small dainty hand to shake. Crissellea is probably best described petite and beautiful.

    "That's right," Lisor nods, "Her name is Reelshka... Trollfinger, I think. She's quite friendly, but works herself pretty hard."

    cool Re: [Nexus] Trog's Tavern CCXXXVI

    There is, at one of the tables in the corner, a group of men in cowboy hats and leather jackets. They're drinking from large bottles of various varieties of hard liquor, talking to each other in loud, slurred voices. They're playing some card game - five card stud, it looks like - each with various amounts of money in front of them up for bid. At the far side of the table, sitting against the corner, is a man in a white jacket and leather chaps, who seems to have tasked himself with dealing. From the looks of it, he's made himself quite a bit of money off the drunken cowboys gambling in front of him. Hes a mangy old fellow with dirty grey hair and a bent back. There is a scar on his cheek, made all the worse by a lazy eye.

    At about noon, a second man walks into the tavern. This one's wearing black shirt under his leather jacket, and his ancient jeans are stained light brown around the cuffs with dirt and mud. The man in black takes a few steps towards the bar, reaching in his pocket for some coin, when the group of gamblers in the corner catches his eye.
    Well, actually, it's the man dealing that catches his eye. The man in black stands there for a moment, incredulous, his hands balling up into fists and beginning to shake. And then he is walking over, his strides fast and long. Within a moment he has pushed the gamblers aside and he slams his fists down on the table, looking the man in white in the eye.
    "My name is Sue!" He bellows. "How do you do!" The man in black topples the table aside, sending cards, coins and drinks crashing to the ground with a crash that only echos the roar of his next words. "Now you're gonna die!"

    Stepping forward, the man in black pulls back his fist and hurls it at the man in white, right between the eyes. The old man grunts, falling off his chair and hitting the wall with a thud before sliding to the ground. For a moment, it looks like he's going to stay down.
    But suddenly he's up, and there is a knife in his hand. The man in white bellows has he lunges at the man in black, swinging the knife down at the man in black's head. The man in black fends off the blow, knocking his arm against the man in white's, but only by a little. The blade slices into his ear, cutting off a notch. Blood pours down the side of the man in black's face as he pushes the older man away, the force of the shove sending the man in white backing up against one of the windows. With a roar, the man in black picks up the toppled chair and swings it at the man in white, hitting him right across the jaw. The blow breaks the chair in two and breaks the window, sending the man in white falling out in a hail of glass. He lands in a patch of mud outside, and the man in black wastes no time in leaping out the window after him.

    The two wrestle in the mud, kicking and punching and biting. Blood mixes with the mud, giving it an unusual reddish hue. But suddenly, the man in white rolls away, grabbing at his belt for the revolver hanging from it. The man in black pulls his first, though, getting up onto his knees with his revolver pointed at the dead centre of the man in white's head.

    The two slowly stand, and for a moment, they are dead silent.

    And then the man in white laughs. "Son," he says, chuckling to himself, "this world is rough. And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough. And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along. So I give ya that name and I said goodbye. I knew you'd have to get tough or die. And it's the name that helped to make you strong." He grins sheepishly, rubbing mud off his face. "Now you just fought one hell of a fight, and I know you hate me. Y'got the right to kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you do. But ya ought to thank me, before I die, For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in ya eye, 'cause I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you "Sue.'"

    The man in black stands there for a while longer, conflicted, when suddenly he throws down his revolver. Tears are in his eyes as he steps towards the man. "Pa..."
    The man in white laughs, throwing his arm around the younger man's shoulder. "C'mon, son."

    Dipsnig nods as well. Reelshka Trollfinger, yeah. I don't know her very well. But it's good to see goblins appreciated.

    Viima's tail swishes and she flops down on the ground next to Kara.

    As Crissellea goes to respond she can't help but jump when the fight breaks out between the boy named Sue and his old man. It takes her a moment to compose herself enough to answer his question.

    " I... I don't get out much actually. I'm usually busy with work. " She says still trying to get her head around the strange fight that just broke out.

    Karaglen smiles and flutters down, possibly to settle on top of Viima.
    She's about the size of a cat, so it probably isn't uncomfortable at all for the wolf.

    Cozy for the little dragon though! Yay snuggles!
    Also bamhacon.
    She'll definitely share the rest of that with the wolf, in exchange for being a cozy resting surface.

    Where I come from, goblins aren't hated, but noone loves us either. Though truth to be told, no sentient race likes the others very much. But yeah. Compared to other stuff seen here, goblins are mild.

    Viima will curl up to provide Kara with a more comfy surface and happily nom on the bamhacon.

    Jacob takes another drink and makes a quick mental note to avoid mentioning that fighting is what he does for a living.

    "Well, there's a lot of fighting." Sakura sounds a bit more subdued. She's still a bit bothered by her failure in that regard at times. "I don't fight. I can't kill things." Or won't being more accurate. "It doesn't really even matter now anyway. I can't fight, even if I wanted to. I'm actually pregnant."

    Jacob downs the rest of his whiskey. He peers thoughtfully over the rim of the empty glass.

    Crissellea gives a little shrug. " Inheritance. It was my father's business and when he passed away I just sort of stepped in. I was always good with figures and I loved it when father would let me watch him work so I learned a lot about the business when I was a kid. So it was just sort of natural for his only child to take over when he passed. "
