    Default [Nexus] The Black Dragon's Den IX


    This old warehouse by the docks and on the edge of the city slums has numerous secret passageways and tunnels leading to it. When you walk in, either from the street or below, you see a freshly cleaned interior that actually looks somewhat welcoming, however, as a seedy hive of smugglers, pirates, and home of the local wererat assassin guild; this is a rough place to have a drink.

    The back half of the building has been converted into a set of rooms, used by those who need a bit of privacy, whether to have a private card game, hold a secret meeting, or just to get away from the world while enjoying a dose of some of the more exotic items the Den serves. We don't care what you do here, just don't leave a mess. Just keep in mind, the walls are a little thin back there, and can be listened through (or busted through), so be careful.

    The gambling scene is lively here, with craps, three-dragon ante, and darts, among other things. There are certainly not knife-fights held in the ring in the basement. Come early for a ringside seat. Gambling is permitted. Anyone caught betting against themselves will be killed, or worse. So don't do it.

    The servers are all NPC goblins. They are: Blackeye, Hooktooth, and Daggernose.
    The cook is a goblin woman named Sicklewort.
    The NPC bouncer is Gnarl, the orc.

    The menu is as follows:

    Drinks

    Common Drinks
    All the common drinks are available in an extremely wide range of qualities, brands, and prices. Just remember- you pay for what you get.
    Spoiler
    Show

    Absinthe
    Ale
    Beer
    Brandy
    Coffee
    Hard Cider
    Kumis (Fermented milk)
    Mead
    Rum
    Tea
    Tequila
    Vodka
    Whiskey
    Wine


    Specialty Drinks
    The specialty drinks are either crafted here or ordered specially from other sources. Normally they are higher class and more palatable, but that is not always the case...
    Spoiler
    Show
    Black Shadow-
    A strong concoction guaranteed to send a chill down your spine at any temperature.
    Damned Soul Nectar-
    Yummy. Damned souls. Perfect for demons, devils, or anyone else lacking a conscience.
    Devil Brew-
    It tastes good, though drinking it will gradually corrupt your soul to evil.
    Drow Spiderblood Wine-
    A specialty drow wine with a strong bite, and a hint of spider venom. Alcohol isn't the only thing you have to worry about when drinking it... but it does taste good.
    Firewine-
    This wine is created in a way that literally leaves the top simmering and flaming. Only recommended to those who have a good fire resistance. However, it is extremely warm and has a fairly sweet taste.
    Frenzywater-
    You want to know what it is like to see red? Frenzywater will having you raging like a barbarian.
    Goblin Thudrud Beer-
    A favorite of goblins... but described by others as smelling like a rotten, flaming cow.
    Hearth Brew Mead
    This is a sweet mead with raspberries, rhubarb and some kind of ingredient that makes you feel warm when you drink it.
    Ichor Liquor-
    A mixture of blood and alcohol made especially for our vampiric friends. It can be served neat, on the rocks, or specially heated to 98.6 F.
    Liquid Agony-
    A drink brewed and distilled from the agony of victims, and quite sweet and tasty, but very addictive.
    Mindflayer Mead-
    A special brew for those squid-headed fellows. Also appropriate for Zombies, or anyoen else who likes the taste of brains.
    Mushroom Wine
    An Underdark drink fermented from mushrooms. It has a good deal of sugar added to it and tastes sweet, but may cause hallucinations...
    Orc Kragg Liquor-
    Strong. Disgusting. Manly.
    Poisonbite Cocktail-
    This brew is mixed of several poisons and rum. It induces extreme euphoria, and will drain the drinker's strength and mental capacities for a day or so.
    Rat Mead-
    This foul concoction is meant more for drinking games, and less for taste. You'll need a strong stomach to keep it down.



    Other

    Food
    Like the drinks, the food ranges in quality and price... the menu is currently under improvement.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Bread-
    Crusty, burnt, soggy, or rotten. It's not your choice. A better bakery is "under construction" in the back. Thanks to a newly built brick oven, the bread is actually quite good now, baked fresh daily.
    Dragon Steak-
    This tender, extremely tasty steak is excellently prepared, but its source is undisclosed...
    Fish of the Day-
    The catch of the day, or yesterday... be sure to specify "fresh."
    Puffer fish liver-
    Tetrodotoxin, anyone? Extreme poison is ahead.
    Soup-
    Most common soups are available, but pay for what you want, or you'll get something else. Served in a bread bowl.


    Mushrooms
    Our mushrooms are well acclaimed for their taste and subtle poisons. If you have enemies, make sure they you didn't get something other than what you asked for...
    Spoiler
    Show
    Amanita-
    A hallucinogenic mushroom that is fairly toxic. May cause nausea, sensory distortions, mood changes, and loss of equilibrium. Retrograde amnesia frequently results following recovery. Serious poisonings cause delirium, seizures, or comas.
    Chanterelle-
    An edible but unremarkable mushroom. Available pickled or dried.
    Lorchel-
    Also known as false morels (due to similarity in appearance), eating these raw results in extreme liver failure or death. Properly prepared, however, they are quite delicious. Available both raw and parboiled (properly prepared).
    Morchella-
    Also known as morels, these very prized and tasty mushrooms are available raw.
    Omphalotus-
    This mushroom looks the same as the Chanterelle. It is extremely appealing in smell and appearance, but has a mild toxicity that will lead to vomiting and cramps.
    Oyster-
    Unlike other mushrooms, this one has no confusing look alikes, and is prized for that quality alone. Served raw or stuffed.
    Porcini-
    Also known as Boletus ("superior"), the porcini is highly regarded and is served raw or sautéed with butter.
    Portabello-
    While edible, this is either described as plain or only slightly sweet. Available raw or stuffed.
    Psilocybin-
    This mushroom is famed for its hallucinogenic effects, while lacking dangerous toxins. Available raw and dried.
    Shiitake-
    These mushrooms are normally added to ordered soups. Available dried or raw.


    Drink Additives
    Buy them for your drink, or for someone else's drink... everything goes here.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Doze Pill-
    A combination of magical energies and herbs guaranteed to put the drinker to sleep in a few minutes.
    Hanger's Drop-
    Ask for this in someone's drink to put them six feet under. Commonly means poison, though other methods can be bought depending on the target.
    Happy Juice-
    As seen in Malleo's shop. Turns the hair pink, and makes the drinker extremely happy.
    Wonder Trip-
    A mixture of magic and poison that causes extreme hallucinations and delirium which are not directly harmful or toxic.

    Other Additives are available, you just have to ask.


    Other Drugs
    If it doesn't get you drunk, and it isn't a mushroom... we still sell it.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Arhtorvin
    A gray powder made by different magic plants, Arthorvin is extremely calming. It is ingested, and numbs emotions and reactions.
    Baccaran
    A paste made of numerous, undisclosed substances, this is a mild hallucinogen that becomes more powerful as it is used in repetition and increased dosage.
    Dreammist
    This drug is formed into a tea, and then the vapors are inhaled. It causes incredibly beautiful and wonderful hallucinations that make the world seem dull in comparison. Overdose is extremely debilitating, as is directly drinking the substance.
    Devilweed
    A tobacco-like substance that is moderately addictive and makes the smoker skittish and more easily confused. Users enjoy it because it glazes over the memories of whatever happens during its effective.
    Luhix
    A powder made from plants grown in the abyss. It is sprinkled on self inflicted wounds- initially it causes intense pain, then numbs the body entirely. It is one of the most addictive substances known amongst the planes, but overdosing even a little may cause terrible, painful death.
    Mertoran Leaf
    This leaf is dried and treated. It is not very addictive, but it is cheap, popular, and boosts confidence. Ingested, not smoked.
    Redflower Leaves
    These leaves are only moderately addictive, but are known to give a boost to hand-eye coordination, making them popular among those who often engage in knife tossing or dart throwing. They are consumed raw and chewed.
    Sannish
    This blue liquid is made out of unknown ingredients and causes euphoria. It has a tendency to stain flesh and anything else it touches. Overdosing causes intense numbness.

    This is by no means the limit of what we can get our hands on, just ask and we'll see what we can do.


    Games
    As a new addition to the Black Dragon's Den, there is a back room where all kinds of gaming take place. Goblins generally oversee the games and make sure things are fair... but everyone here can be bribed. Best to keep an eye on things yourself.

    Card Games
    -Coming Soon-

    Dice Games
    We provide all of the dice used here... unless you slip them out of our sleeve. "Better" dice can be bought with a quiet word and a few coin, though we don't provide protection from those who find out that you've used them.

    Coin Pass
    Spoiler
    Show
    This is a simple dice game played with a pair of six sided dice, and is generally best with four or more players.
    Each player puts out two coins (generally one type of coin is chosen, copper, silver, gold, or platinum) and then, in turn, each player rolls the dice.
    If a player rolls a one, they take one of their coins and place it in the pot.
    If a player rolls a six, they take one of their coins and pass it to the person on the left. This continues until only one player has coins, at which time they take the pot.
    If a player has no coins left, they have one round to wait for someone to pass them a coin (by roll of a six), after which they can buy their way back in. You can only buy your way back into a game once.


    Serpent's Eyes
    Spoiler
    Show
    This game is played with a pair of six sided dice, and a game board in the shape of the world serpent.

    Before the game begins, the number of rounds to play are determined, though the game may end ahead of time, or when one player runs out of coins/chips. Generally people play with a large number of rounds (double digits).
    A round is completed once every player has rolled the dice once.
    The dice start with the player closest to the seven on the board.
    When a player rolls the dice, he does one of three things.
    If he rolls any number 3-11, he places a coin on the corresponding number on the board, or, if the number is already filled with coins, they take the coins off of that number.
    If he rolls a 2, he places a coin on every number on the board.
    If he rolls a 12, he takes all coins from the board.


    Warship
    Spoiler
    Show
    This game is played with five dice for each player. The person who rolls first is normally determined randomly.
    The goal of the game is to create the best 'ship', where a 'ship' is a straight formed either forwards (1,2,3) or backwards (3,2,1). To create a straight, you roll the dice, and choose anywhere from 0-3 numbers from them. Your first chosen die is your starting number (IE, a number on either end of a straight), the second die chosen has to be the middle number of your straight, and the third die chosen is the last of your straight.
    You have three rolls of the dice to form a straight. Whenever you choose one of these die, you remove it from the dice you roll to get the next number.
    The game progresses like this:
    1) Each player places an amount of money agreed on when the game starts.
    2) Each player rolls the dice once, chooses any dice from their roll that they want, then either adds in the money first agreed on again, or passes from the game, but leaves any money they first bet in the pot (Note that everyone can see what die you have chosen, if you have chosen a die already).
    3) Repeat the second step once more, then every player rolls the dice once more, and the person with the ship with the highest straight wins. If someone creates a ship one the first or second roll, they still bet, but do not have to roll until the last round (which is only done in case of ties).

    If no one has a straight, the winner is based on the person with the highest number set aside (with only players with dice set aside competing). If there is a tie in highest numbers, they go to the second die set aside (with only players with two dice competing). If there is a tie between set aside die, they proceed with the same process into the dice they last rolled (excluding those set aside)

    If two people have the same straight, they compare the numbers rolled on their last turn (not including the ones placed into their "ship"). The person with the highest numbers wins.

    The winner takes all money in the pot. Generally, more than one game is played at once.


    Other Games
    These may be more or less 'games' as such... but are just as entertaining.

    Darts
    Spoiler
    Show
    Bet on how well someone will throw, whether they can do it with their eyes closed... with their left hand... or if they can dodge a knife- it's all good. There are a few different dart boards, so any number of rings and scoring areas can be played with.


    Knife Fights
    Spoiler
    Show
    We hold knife fights here every once in a while, down in the basement. To surrender or death. Place your bets, folks.
    -No current list of PC fighters. Contact management to arrage something 'formal.'

    Cragg tilts his head, staring at Junior and grabs two of the empty jugs from their drinking game. He starts pouring into one and when its full he'll move onto the other. By then, if Junior is watching, he should figure out that Cragg wasn't wasting good booze. After all, the clear bottle was only half full when he pulled it out. It just happened to stay half full when he poured it. Wee cohld sehl eet. He says holding one of the jugs up. Ohn Joog Ohf Bewze

    Right, this headache wasn't gonna go away on it's own here. Too much going on. And the back rooms wouldn't be any solace as she knew how thin the walls were. Heck, it would just make it worse, really, as she could probably list a short history of each just by smell alone now. Thinking about what goes on back there, it sounded like either a terrible idea to start with or the makings of an excellent drinking game. Yeah, one drink each for sex and drugs while murders and business deals count for two. Three for demon summonings. Hmm... Need something to count for the whole bottle. Eh. Later when it's easier to think.

    Unless someone had the bright idea to get Ghoul's attention on her way out, then she would be out in the streets and looking for a quiet, dimly lit place.

    Hopefully clean as well. Clean places didn't have so many smells to them... Though 'lemon fresh' may sting a little, now that she thought of it.

    There's another series of "meep"s at the initial booze-pouring and then the quick moving away.
    Also the grip-tightening
    And the prospect of apologizing to the funny-smelling horned guy.

    Well. Everyone here smelled funny.
    But he seemed sort of wrong, not like the other fleshy people here.

    He was also glaring at her in a sort of unsettling way.
    Dancing somewhere between an urge to kill and an urge to flip her upside down and dunk her in a bucket while screaming something about her being a disrespectful punk.
    It was a weird look.

    Del proceeds to be confused.
    Then slowly nods and hides his face behind a distinctly not flaming alcoholic beverage.

    Cragg groans and corks one of the jugs, keeping it in his left hand incase Then decides to start another fight. If he does he'll find the jug and it's brother flying towards him and two small fireballs coming shortly after.

    If Then stares into Cragg's eyes he might realize there are no eyes. Just empty sockets filled with a kind of mist. Cragg takes a swig of vodka and pushes it up to his eyesockets. Then he turns his head slightly and lights them on fire, looking back at Then with literal fiery eyes.

    Cragg simply pours more vodka and keeps the fires going. If Then keeps staring ice daggers at him though he might just decide to warm him up a bit. Maybe with some fire, maybe with some liquor, maybe with both.

    There's a rumble of deep bass coming outside the bar before the door bursts open as a pale white form is knocked through, into bar. The figure is a pale skinned elf clothed in All-Stars, baggy pants and a white "wife beater" shirt. The elf stands and readjusts his red ballcap so the bill is facing backwards.

    He spits out blood as he watches a half-orc and a pair of his posse enter the Den with him. The half-orc is the infamous Thugmasta-Z, rapper and gangsta from the warehouse district of Red Zone, his golden necklace and blue ball cap revealing his identity.

    The Half-Orc nods to his posse and the other two blue-capped orcs begin to get ready and they start beat-boxing. He's about to sing when there's the sound of a record scratching, breaking off the beat-boxing.

    The elf smirks and lowers his hands, knowing he's gotten just a few spare moments from the simple self-named "Scratch" spell. With a slight twist of his hat, his own music begins to play.

    "Yo pig, I'm gonna do mah thang
    And I'm gonna beat yo head till it rang!
    U and yo posse are gonna be layin' so low
    That you'll be wishin' I was jus' a Jug-ga-lo!"


    Oh dear Throne in heaven...a Rap Fight.

    Thugmasta-Z and his posse take a step back in surprise, air knocked from their lungs by the sudden counterstanza to their earlier beat-box beating. The air crackles with energy around the elf, his Rebellious Nature reformed and shielding him from the verbal abuse that the Thugmasta and his cronies could toss at him if given a chance. The pair of beat-boxers try to restart but the gangsta elf continues with his improvised refrain.

    "Now, you and yo posse think you Kings of Da Block
    but, you half-breeds ain't worth more than a fruit cart.
    I'm da real Masta, better than thou art.
    Thugmasta, you ain't as right as a bro-ken clock!

    Beat-Boxing may be a noble skill
    But I'm steppin' through, heddin' for da keel.
    You thought you could stomp me flat
    But you shoulda known betta suckas, CAUSE I'M PHITY-PLAT!!!"

    The Half-Orcs physically suffer under the verbal blows, bruises appearing as their pride is beaten. They back up, trying to get away from the vengeful once-victim, but he hunts after them, giving them no rest.

    "You all get outta here, ya his-to-ry
    Ya call yaselves rappers, but ya'll a shame to me!
    You all get outta here, afore I make ya get on yo knees
    Don't wanna see yo faces till ya have an ar-my!"


    With his final word, Phity-Plat gives a stomp, causing a small shockwave of air to push into the so-called Thugmasta-Z and his crew, knocking them out of the Den. The elf rapper smirks and cracks his neck at a job well done before heading to the bar.

    Junior nods at Del, grateful at least one of his drinking buddies can choose to show restraint around children.

    "Aye lass, tha's a good point thar. Run along with yer pants an letus get back ta arr drinkin. Mebbe yeh can go steal tha pants offa some people yer own age yeh?"

    With that the usually taciturn drorf releases his hold on Viera and tries to ruffle her hair as a parting shot.

    "Off yeh go now lass, Ah mean it."

    That rap battle over there looks interesting enough, but it seems it's already run its course. A shame really, since that means he won't get to showcase his breakdancing skills.

    As the rap battle ends, a slow clap comes from the back of the barroom, where Raril Xar'Cha leans in the doorway. The drow has his eyes on 'Phity-Plat'. "You've got talent, kid. Real potential." The bard compliments the rapper, serious, before a grin spreads accross his face. "Now if you could just learn to play some real music."

    Plat scowls and spins on his stool to glare at the critics. " 'ey, why do ya gotta do that? If dis wasn't music then I woulda lost. I don't see any of you Rappin'."

    Raril steps behind the bar and leans on it, looking at Plat. "Now, I'm not saying you didn't put on a good performance. Your improvizational skill is pretty good, but your rhyme and meter are off. With some polish, you might actually be able to compose something worth remembering.And call me old fashioned, but real music is... well, musical. With notes and instruments. You're just talking, there, friend."

    Viera skips away from Junior as he releases her, tying her latest pants acquisition to her previous acquisition.

    Then she sticks her tongue out at the group and fades out in her usual patchwork fashion.
    "Grumpy butts!"
    Who would have thought that a drow-dragon and a rocky...thing would have been grumpier than a drow-dwarf?
    Aren't dwarves supposed to be really cranky about booze things?

    Weirdos.


    Del glares at the spot she vanishes in, before proceeding to down the glass he was hiding behind.

    Junior doesn't blink as Viera appears to break reality by fading away. He's seen worse things at the bottom of a bottle than pants-stealing rabbit children that don't obey the laws of physics.

    He does surl right up again though, slipping his wallet and keys into his rucksack and taking a seat again, "Mmnot a grumpy butt..."

    In defiance of common sense, Junior takes one of the leftover firewines and sips it gently, the flames tickling the insides of his nostrils.

    He'll sit there in companionable (grumpy, surly, taciturn and altogether malaised) silence unless Del wishes to speak with him again.

    At this very statement, a gust of wind seems to have opened the door, momentarily allowing nothing but fresh air to enter.

    After a hopeful second, a colourful object is blown in the door by a similar gust, knocking a poor wizard's hat down in its owner's eyes before stopping with a buzz at the table of pants and Junior drorfs, tipping a suddenly-appearing hat at everybody present.

    "harmony and grooves, that was fun!"

    No longer moving, the object appears to be a peculiar little humanoid. Mundanities such as the solid green eyes and insectoid wings are paired with a colour-changing coat, red hair and aviator goggles.

    "Oh. Pardon me very much, granolas, but is it me or you who are upside down."

    The pixie, who indeed appear to have found himself on his head in mid-air, does a short bow.

    Well then, isn't this an exciteable little fellow. Junior, finding himself in an altogether too pleasant mood, tips his rather heavy bowler hat back at the pixie.

    "Tha's hard ta say. From a purely universal standpoint, non've us're really tha right ways around. How'vre, looks like grav'ty's pullin' me tha right way 'round today, so ah'd say ye're tha one what be upside down at tha moment." Sound logic, at least to someone familiar with special relativity and universal constants.

    Pushing a green scarf out of his face, the Pixie turns around and drops to the floor, studying the arrangement of it and the ceiling.

    "I believe you are right, mister... Crikey! I forgot introductions, how square of me!"

    Bowing again, this time in a quite aristocratic manner, the Pixie presents himself.

    "Greetings, I am Lewis Wyllt, mechanic, tea-maker and very glad to meet new faces. Who might you fine cats be?"

    The polite greeting loses a bit of the seriousness by the cheery tone and psychedelic clothing of the speaker.

    ((Deadtime, I'm afraid. Sorries! T_T))

    Cragg undeadtimes and peers at the pixie, extinguishing his flaming eyes. Eye ahm up yew are down. Or yew are up and Eye ahm down. Such ees leyefe. He isn't quite sure where he heard that before but it seemed to fit the current situation.

    Del peers at the pixie for a moment, rubbing a burn spot on his lip.
    Too many peculiar creatures are appearing.

    If this one gets anywhere near his face, like last one, he's shooting it.
    "As long as your gravity stays over there..."

    He had some vague question to ask Junior, but he either plans to wait until the pixie leaves or he forgot.
    Which is a risk.

    "Junior, short fer nuthin. Phycisist, mixologist, an' grump. Yeh can ave a drink one me if ye'll jes stop 'overin thar an take a seat." Junior may be getting a bit dizzy watching the groovy pixie, so hopefully the new patron will take the offer.

    Otherwise there's a gut worth of liquid forgetfulness that wishes to have words with Junior once again.
