INN

Just off the main road leading into town is a gravel drive leading up to a rather disheveled two-story building, with bits of it under construction. Out front is a big wooden sign that reads simply, “INN”. The white paint is peeling from the letters. Beneath it is a sign that reads ‘Hiring! For a variety of positions! Inquire within!’ A wide front porch dominates the front of the building. The second story has new windows, but old shutters, new shingles, but old wooden siding.

Unlike many buildings in Town that pop up overnight this one has been here for some time. It was out of business for a few months, but now there is activity at it again, mostly in the form of work crews and a portly fellow brimming with optimism and the pride of owning a new business.

The door to the inn was once painted a friendly shade of green. It is currently sanded down in preparation for a new coat of paint. Should a person venture inside he or she will be met with large room that runs the front of the building, and is much longer than it is wide.

On the right-hand side is a counter. A big leather-bound guestbook lies in the center of the counter and behind it is a window looking into a cramped office. A shiny little bell sits on the edge of the counter with a small note that reads ‘ring for service please’. To the left, the room has some tables and chairs, and in the center several aging sofas arranged around a large coffee table all in front of a larger hearth. Past that there are more tables and a small bar. Behind the bar are several swinging doors that lead back to the kitchen.

Should a guest ring for service he or she will find a portly, balding fellow hurrying toward the front counter, greeting them loudly. “Good day!”

OOC INFO
This thread will (hopefully) be growing as I have my entrepreneurial  little character set to work on it. For now, have your characters stop by if they are curious about the new business, looking for a job, or even if they’re looking for a place to stay. Though the owner will tell them, “We’re not technically open for business yet…” he won’t turn them away if they are willing to stay in one of the not-quite-ready rooms.

A red goblin wanders up to the INN. Seeing the sign and checking his coin pouch, he decides to go in to the INN.

(the pun has been made)

((The pun was INNevitable.))

As the goblin enters he will be met by the sight of the main room as described, except there is a trail of sawdust leading from the front door, past the front counter and back into the hallway toward the rooms. The sound of hammers can be heard reverberating down the stairway.

The goblin will have just enough time to get his bearings before a portly, balding fellow with a broad, happy face comes scurrying out from the office behind the main counter.

"Hello! Hello and welcome! How may I help you?" the man asks loudly.

(I think the puns here might be INNexhaustable)

The goblin looks up at the man. There are several burns on his face that almost seem like ritual markings.
I saw a sign that said something about hiring. Is that the case, or did someone forget to take it down?

The scars on the goblin's face get a second glance, then at the goblin's question he replies, "Yes, indeed, indeed we're hiring, or rather I am hiring." he smiles widely. "What are your skills? Come, sit down and we'll talk." He holds out a hand indicating one of the round, wooden tables in the main room, and starts walking over toward it.

The goblin eyes the wood a bit warily, but follows the man over.
I can fight, though I don't think you'd want me as a bouncer. A bit too much wood in this building. Or I can entertain people.

"Oh... an entertainer...hmmm... hmmm..." He thinks on that a bit, chewing it over as it were, his jaw muscles working slightly. "I never thought much about having entertainment..." his thinking turns back into a smile, clearly he has decided entertainment might be an excellent idea. "What do you do? Sing? Tell me more, please."

This.
The goblin closes his eyes. Flames suddenly leap into existence around him and begins to flicker and weave in hypnotic patterns, creating blazing images of heroic battles. Throughout the story, which is accomplished entirely through the visuals of the fire, the flames change color to fit the mood that is to be set. Oddly, nothing catches fire.

At first the innkeeper jumps a little, and worry flickers through his eyes, worry for his wooden inn. Then, when nothing catches fire, he calms down and watches the show. "Oh... now that is impressive. Yes, I could see that making fine entertainment some evening. But it needs narration... and maybe some music to go with it.. yes, yes, that would be quite the show."

The goblin's eyes open.
Perhaps. However, that would need to be supplied by another. My concentration goes to maintaining the flames.
He thinks for a moment.
Barring that, I have some knowledge of beverages, and my pet will keep a fire going without any need for wood.

"Ah! Beverages! Now we get into an area I need to fill quickly. It is a small bar, but it will need a bartender." He gestures toward the small bar at the far end of the room. "Are you familiar with this Town?" He looks very eager to hear the answer to that final question.

He will doubtlessly come back to the topic of the fellow's pet once the topic of the bar is well covered.

"Ah, more's the pity, more's the pity..." he shakes his head a little, then brightens up again. "Well, that just means I'll have more research to do. I need to ascertain what types of drinks are popular around here so I know what to stock the bar with. Tell me about any experience you have with bar-tending and more about your pet, it sounds unique."

Not so much in actual bartending as with alchemy. But bartending and alchemy have a lot of common elements, and I know how to make several drinks, though I'm not sure about any of the local varieties. As for my pet...
His eyes close again and a creature appears beside him. It looks like a coal statue with a fiery glow coming from within. Its eyes are a pair of white flames.
Talnik, Emberling steward of Torch, at your service, sir.

"Alchemy, now that is interesting. If you know basic drinks, that should be enough to start with. We'll learn the local favorites together." He says.

"Oh, my! A pleasure to meet you Talnik, emberling steward of Torch." He greets the pet.

Talnik appears to grin.
So, I'm getting to pay for my own lodging again, it seems.
The goblin looks at it.
You need the heat.

"Now, your master said you can keep a fire going without any need for wood?" The innkeeper inquires of the pet. "As you can see, I have a very large hearth here, and it would be nice to have a cheery fire going in it all the time for the guests. Can you help with that?"

Talnik walks over to the fire and hops in. As it enters the fire, it seems to vanish.
Done.
The goblin explains
Talnik is from the Elemental Plane of Fire, so it can give off flames. But, if it has a fire to start with, it can do so without consuming it's own energies.

"Well, I have some matches, and there is plenty of scrap wood out back from the renovations. I can get a starter-fire going in a jiffy. Here, let's head out back and get some wood while we talk." The man hauls himself to his feet and starts heading past the front desk and into the hallway.

"As we go, what's your name? I'm Daniel." He holds out one of his meaty hands to shake.

The goblin follows and shakes the hand. Daniel may notice that the goblin's skin is incredibly hot. Not quite painful, but certainly uncomfortable.
Torch. Pleased to meet you.

Talnik stays in the fireplace.

"Well, Torch," Daniel flaps his hand in the air a few times to cool it down after their handshake. Not blatantly enough to be rude, but just out of necessity, Daniel's handshake is firm and that just made the handshake warmer. "Will you be working off room and board as part of your pay, or will you want a straight paycheck and be living elsewhere?" he asks as they head past the stairs and out the back door.

In the back yard of the INN there are piles of new wood siding, set to be installed soon, and piles of scrapwood from the nearly completed interior renovations.

Torch doesn't mind.
For now I'd prefer room and board. I may move elsewhere once I save up some funds and have a chance to look around town.
He eyes the wood
This should burn nicely.

"Sounds reasonable, Torch." he says in reply to Torch wanting to work off room and board to begin with. "And it's good to hear this will burn well. I had this pile made hoping we could burn it in the hearth there instead of having to pay to have it hauled off."

Daniel gathers up several pieces of timber sized to fit in the large hearth and heads back toward the door.

Torch blinks and a few more pieces float up and follow him as he walks back in after Daniel.

As Daniel pulls the door open with one hand he drops a kindling sized bit of wood and turns back to pick it up. He sees the wood floating behind Torch and does a double-take. "Now there is a useful skill." he comments, clearly impressed. He continues inside.

"Once we get this going, you should head upstairs and pick out one of the renovated rooms." Daniel tosses the wood into the hearth, careful not to hit Talnik.

((see you all tomorrow or the next day, whichever I have time to post))
