There is a Random Venues Outside of Town thread for all the places one might go that are outside of Town but not deserving of their own thread.

Well, here is the Random Venues Inside of Town thread.

It is for anyplace you need inside of town that doesn’t deserve its own thread.

A little brick house, sandwiched between two similar brick houses. Unlike the neighbor’s yard, with it’s tidy rosebush, this one has a slightly crooked fence surrounding an unkept patch of grass.

Westlanna knocks on the door and it is answered by a skinny lady with frizzy hair and thick glasses.

She opens it just a crack and glares out at the people bothering her evening… until the light from the candle she’s holding shines on Westlanna’s face.

Ah, its you again, the wandering bookworm, yes, do come in, and I see you have friends. Come in. she opens the door for them.

Good to see you again as well, Sara. Westlanna says.

The lady's sharp green eyes scrutinize both Johnny and Raril. And you would be? she says to Johnny.

Mm-hm. she says with a sharp little nod. She then holds the door a little further open Well, don't just stand there. Come in.

Westlanna steps inside onto the frayed rug, and walks in a little ways so Johnny and Raril can follow.

There is a kitchen off to the left and off to the right a couch and some chairs. Every wall is covered in bookcases and a peak through the door at the far side of the room shows the next room is filled with bookcases as well. While the chairs are well-worn, the bookcases are shiny from careful dusting and every book is lined up straight.

Well, what brings you here? Just Johnny, and you as well, bookworm?

Mm-hm. she says again with a sharp little nod. Then she looks at Westlanna.

I was hoping you could help us find some books, ones about a thing called Atropus. Westlanna says. It is the thing that has been causing all of the undead.

Mm-hm. she says again with a sharp little nod. I can’t promise anything, but books like that would be here.

She briskly strides across the room and motions toward a staircase.

Or in the attic.

Thank you Sara. she then turns to Johnny, Well, should we both look in the basement, or split up and one of us take the attic?

You both decide now. I’ll be over here. Sara walks over to her chair, and picks up the book she’s reading.

Sounds good. Westlanna says.

If he chooses the basement he'll need a source of light or he'll want to borrow the flashlight Westlanna just pulled out of her pocket.

If he chooses the attic Sara will point him to the enterence in the next room, along with the ladder to get up there. The ladder is wobbly. Westlanna fell off the last time she was here, but Johnny wouldn't know that.

Downstairs are bookshelves, Rows and rows of them. Sara had the basement excavated till it filled almost her whole plot of land. That is where most of her books are. In the attic are boxes of books.

Feel free to RP him going through the books. Only rare and unusual titles are present. Sara doesn't keep normal books.

((actually I need to go now too. Perfect timing.))

Ned pauses outside, then enters the building.

Given his choice, Raril will search the basement, having always been more comfortable underground and in the dark. Unfortunately, it's impossible to read normal text through darkvision, so the Drow summons a small, softly glowing orb that would float around and illuminate nearby titles. He mutters quietly to himself as he scans the shelves. "Gods, I haven't done anything like this since Sorcere."

The lady looks up from her book as Ned enters And you would be?



Westlanna heads downstairs with Raril. Then pauses as she remembers something, Oh, Johnny, if you look in the attic, watch out for the ladder, it slips, and the third rung is a bit weak.

Westlanna isn’t overly fond of heights, and she hasn’t visited the basement before.

Raril’s light will show a wide range of titles, and lots of books he will have to open to find out the title. Many of the books are old, some with the lettering on the spine too faded to read, and there are many leatherbound journals.

A ticking sound can be heard nearby.

Westlanna hears Raril's comment, Been a while since you've had to do research?

She pulls a book down from a nearby shelf and flips it open to the first page, Ah, an adventurer's accounts of his travels. Not what we're looking for. She puts it back on the shelf.

Tell me if you find anything that looks like it might have info about a giant undead moon. I really don't know much about this Atropus thing.

Ned aims his most charming smile at the librarian.
John Paul Edward Kelly at your service, ma'am, but please call me Ned, everyone does. I'm with a lady who I believe came in here earlier, a Miss Westlanna?

Not actually a librarian, she's one of Westlanna's eccentric friends, a lady who compulsively collects rare, odd and unusual books. Her house is filled with her private library.

Mm-hm. she says, again acompanying the sound with a sharp little nod, just as she has for everyone else. friends of hers are welcome. She just went downstairs. she says briskly, then goes back to reading.

Ned tips his fedora to her.
Thank you, ma'am.
And he heads downstairs.

Crow flies leisurely through the streets.  She passes over the building and circles back around it.  For some reason she finds herself drawn to the brick structure.  She thinks briefly about it then swings down and lands in front of the door.  She eyes the door carefully and sighs.  This would be easier if I had thumbs.  She looks the building over and gets an idea.  She flutters up onto one of the windowsills.  She taps the window several times with her beak, trying to get the attention of anyone inside.

Ned will soon spot the light from Westlanna's flashlight, a few bookshelves away in the dark basement. The air is dry and cool, perfect for storing books.

Meanwhile upstairs...

A thin lady with frizzy hair and thick glasses looks up from reading. She walks over to the window to see what is disturbing her reading now. And gives the bird on the windowsill a long look.

And why would a crow be tapping on my window? she wonders aloud. Crow should be able to hear this musing through the thin windowpanes.

Now this is what I call a collection of literature...
Not wanting to surprise her, Ned calls ahead.
That you, 'Lanna?

Over here! she calls.

Ned might get sidetracked by the many leatherbound or oilskin wrapped journals, obviously logs kept by adventurers detailing their travels.

He skims their titles as he walks past, but once Ned has something he intends to do, he does it with bulldog tenacity...even if it's merely crossing the floor to join his friend. Wink
Hey. What are we looking for here again?

Most don't have titles, besides "Journal" or "Log" written on the side, one thin one might catch his eye though: 'An Odd Encounter with a Moon'

Hi, Ned, good to see you. she smiles Anything about an undead-causing moon called "Atropus".

((Sorry bout that, got called away.))
Crow looks at the woman and tilts her head.  Nevermore!  She pauses a moment.  I know, I know, Quote the Raven, not crow, but I couldn't help it.  Mind letting me in?

He smiles back.
Good to see you too. Hmm, lets see, I did notice something...
He heads back and relocates that one certain title Wink , and takes it off the shelf.
I wonder about this one.
He opens it.

If you quote poetry, you are welcome here. she says and opens the window. Do you like to read?

Crow may hear Westlanna's voice drifting up from downstairs.

Crow bows to the woman before entering.  I have read many books in my time.  Poe always struck a cord with me.  She pauses.  That sounds like Westlana.
