This old warehouse by the docks has numerous secret passageways and tunnels. When you walk in, 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 gambling scene is lively here, with craps, three-dragon ante, and darts, among other things. The dart board is strange, and hangs askance on the wall, and a picture of Kantur adorns the bulls' eye - it is of higher quality than it should be and was clearly stolen from somewhere.
There are certainly not knife-fights held in the ring in the back. Come early for a ringside seat. Gambling is permitted. Anyone caught betting against themselves will be killed.
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:
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.
Kumis (Fermented milk)
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
A drink brewed and distilled from the agony of victims, and quite sweet and tasty, but very addictive.
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.
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.
This foul concoction is meant more for drinking games, and less for taste. You'll need a strong stomach to keep it down.
Aesa's Mixes These are only available when Aesa is in, and beware if you order them... everytime it changes, and it is always dangerous.
Whatever Aesa feels like putting in. Not normally fatal.
Death by Aesa-
Almost exactly like what it sounds. It has enough poisons, diseases, and energies to kill anyone with immunities to them.
Curse of Constitution
Touch of Fatigue
Fist of Subduing Force
Subtle Death (normal magical and supernatural poison and disease resistance/immunities are bypassed. Resistances and Immunities due to body and form are unaffected.)
Sassone Leaf Residue
Black Lotus Extract
Dark Reaver Powder
Magical Item Effects:
Flask of Curses
Dust of Sneezing and Choking
Imbued with Negative Energy and Essence of Ghast.
Mix with 90% Ethanol, and 10% Methanol.
Essence of Disintegrate-
A clear liquid that has no taste. It gives you a pleasant tingling sensation that means your mouth, throat, and vital organs are being dissolved. Please clean up after yourself.
A drink that uses a combination of frenzywater, titan's blood (poison similar to frenzywater), happy juice, and the Wonder Trip additive. Causes insane, joyful rages that normally end in mass destruction.
Food Like the drinks, the food ranges in quality and price... the menu is currently under improvement.
Crusty, burnt, soggy, or rotten. It's not your choice. A better bakery is "under construction" in the back.
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.
Most common soups are available, but pay for what you want, or you'll get something else.
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...
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.
An edible but unremarkable mushroom. Available pickled or dried.
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).
Also known as morels, these very prized and tasty mushrooms are available raw.
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.
Unlike other mushrooms, this one has no confusing look alikes, and is prized for that quality alone. Served raw or stuffed.
Also known as Boletus ("superior"), the porcini is highly regarded and is served raw or sautéed with butter.
While edible, this is either described as plain or only slightly sweet. Available raw or stuffed.
This mushroom is famed for its hallucinogenic effects, while lacking dangerous toxins. Available raw and dried.
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.
A combination of magical energies and herbs guaranteed to put the drinker to sleep in a few minutes.
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.
As seen in Malleo's shop. Turns the hair pink, and makes the drinker extremely happy.
A mixture of magic and poison that causes extreme hallucinations and delirium which are not directly harmful or toxic.
Other Drugs If it doesn't get you drunk, and it isn't a mushroom... we still sell it.
A gray powder made by different magic plants, Arthorvin is extremely calming. It is ingested, and numbs emotions and reactions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This leaf is dried and treated. It is not very addictive, but it is cheap, popular, and boosts confidence. Ingested, not smoked.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a special game provided by the new owners. Pay a suitable amount of gold, and you'll enter a battle room where you can create up to 50 warriors (of any race and type) and your own custom base and piece of the field (using a completely mutable area. Change gravity, landscape, buildings... the sky is the limit). Your opponent(s) will get the same options, and once bases and soldiers are created, you can pit them against each other.
The field, soldiers, and everything that takes place here is an illusion. Battlefront can have up to four players.
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.
We hold knife fights here every Saturday night. To surrender or death. Place your bets, folks.

She looks over at him, her red eyes shining--the one on the right seeming even brighter in the darkness of that half of her face. But you want to...and she dresses in a way that says she wants to be taken... _________________
Ah...but you tried...and see, that's as good as threatening him. Threatening a god is foolish, at best. Fatal, most often. And as a goddess of death, well...you can tell which option he picked. _________________
Hawkeye laughs and moves away more, seemingly the alcohol didn't impede his actions anymore "So why did you do all the talking at the start if you were only here to kill?" something in his eyes glimmers. _________________ Endellion Archive
Because it would have been fun if you'd taken her...I'm not too fond of her. Maybe because they look alike... Hel stands and the floor beneath her feet starts to become a black river... _________________
Hawkeye somersaults backwards onto a table, he'd heard enough about black rivers and death to know that this wasn't good. he quickly draws his bow, loads two arrows into it and fires them at Hel. _________________ Endellion Archive
If she had appeared at any other place in the room, he'd have got at least one shot at her. When she comes from behind, however, he hasn't the time to turn around and shoot, he curses and drops his bow on the table. He draws a dagger from his belt before she has the chance to grapple him fully and he tries to fend her off with it. _________________ Endellion Archive

She glances at the deadtimed fight, then heads to the far corner of the room and orders two DLBs. For starters. _________________ "You have declared war upon the Cybermen."
