Upon entering the tavern you find it to be rustic, dim, cramped, and smelling of spilled beer. Moving through the crowd, half of which seem to be deadtiming, you spot a fireplace with a banjowood carving on the mantle, you also make out through the haze the curving bar and private booths hidden behind ferns. A side door leading to a bamboo patio outside reveals a hungry looking dumpster mimic sneaking towards an unsuspecting customer.

On the wall is a large, ornate mirror which people seem to step in and out of freely. A winding staircase near the front door leads to rooms for rent upstairs. The backroom is now completely off-limits to all patrons and most of the bar staff, it's occupied by the bartender.

Trog's Tavern is no longer enchanted to be indestructible. Attempting to damage it will succeed. Now with Free Sweet, Delicious Wi-Fi.  We've recently renewed our liquor licence!

New: Anyone that is not a bar staff that tries to pilfer drinks out of where they are kept will get a maximised disintegrate to the head. You have been warned.

In Memoriam (hall of former staff): Trog (owner emeritus), El Jaspero (manager emeritus), Hoseki (bouncer), Tempest Stormwing (bouncer), Valthreborn Valthera (bouncer), Vivian (bartender), Alex Shipmaster (bartender), Erdan (bartender), Kantur (bartender), Who (cook), Zee (cook)

Current Staff:
Owner and Proprietor: Melantha
Manager: *NEW* Alex
Bartenders: Aurora
Bouncers: Now hiring!  No seriously, Inquire within! Temp. Bouncer: Aurora
Cook: Ghoolion
Entertainment: T.B.A.

NOW HIRING: Bartenders, Cooks, Talented bards, Burly bouncers, etc.
(Hey bards: just take spotlight in the tavern's center and start singing!)

Nina - A feisty and vivacious 18 year old (she's legal). Mean and completely unavailable.
Paige - A sweet and wholesome elf working her way through college here in town.
Cosmo - A quick-witted and oppressed gnome scoundrel.

All will be happy to serve you. Since all are NPCs they are up for communal control. Feel free to say what they do or say to you or any other patron. To a point.

Greeny barks with laughter, then looks towards the stairs.  A second later, the Jonahs head into the bar.  Amid some immediate hugging and ear stroking, the girls fire questions at the wolf:

"Greeny!"
"We didn't think you'd be here for ages."
"Did you like sailing?"
"How's Kratos?"
"Where's mum?"

"Why do you smell of burnt sheets?" the wolf counters.

"No reason," the girls reply in unison.


Melantha taps her foot "So if I did a snap room inspection I wouldn't find anything untoward upstairs?"

The Jonahs look at each other.

"Um..."

"It's just the sheets.  I took the blankets and pillows off the bed first," Jamin says.

"And in all fairness, the purple flames are very pretty."

Melantha sighs "I leave you alone for 2 minutes and already you make a mess. Can I expect to be repaid for this and in what way?"

Melantha pouts "Aww, that's no fun."

Tala looks at Greeny {lupine} "So how have you been cutie?"

"Money can be used to buy fun things, though," Jamin comments.

Greeny barks a laugh.
{Lupine} "Flattery gets you everywhere, they say.  I've been doing well.  Not enjoying the open sea, but it was good to see my cub again."

Melantha gives a (slightly wicked) grin "That depends on whether someone is willing to play along."

{lupine} "I never trust the sea, it's just a couple of planks of wood between you and a gulf of nearly bottomless water"

"Were you thinking of getting a basketball hoop or a board game?" Jamin asks hopefully.

Greeny whines.
{Lupine} "Well that's that, I'm never going on a boat ever again."

Melantha giggles "Oh come on, this is me were talking about." she's aware that she's treading on eggshells around the pair, but if she couldn't be anything but herself (even in a toned down version).

And through the mirror steps Marisela, looking a little whiter than usual. She sits down at a distant table and orders (for the first time) a strong drink.

The drink is quickly delivered by Aurora, who doesn't actually seem to leave any more.

"Anything else?"

Marisela slips two platinum pieces into Aurora's hand "Yes. Keep the drinks coming."

The Jonahs spot Marisela as she enters the tavern and look a little worriedly at the angel as she orders a drink.

"I think she could use a friend," Jonah says to Jamin and Mel before peeling off and heading towards the angel.

"I recommend Nut Brew.  It's full of tastiness," she says to Marisela.

Jamin, meanwhile, folds her arms.

"Yes, actually, we do know," Jamin says to Mel, raising an eyebrow.  "I'm not so sure you could handle us anyway. We're not your usual conquest."

"It's not tastiness I'm looking for." Marisela says tiredly then finishes the first drink.

Melantha leans forwards with a smile "That almost sounds like a challenge. As if I wasn't going for it already."

"What's happened?" Jonah asks the angel in concern.

"Well, sadly our room's a bit burnt right now, so I guess we'll never find out," Jamin says with a grin.

"Oh I wasn't intending for it to go that fast." she leans back "As you wouldn't want that and even if you were I'm a bit bored of things going from base one to four in a matter of minutes."

Marisela grabs the second drink before it's been placed on the table. She downs it and slams the glass on the table "I've been replaced. Me. Replaced."

"Oh don't worry, Mel.  There's no danger of that occuring."

"Damn right there's not," comes a wolfy mutter.

------------------

"Another angel?" Jonah asks gently.  "Well, it's their loss.  You can be properly terrifying, y'know."

"We can all be pretty terrifying. And whoever's replaced me has been pushing for my position for centuries. She might be...very eager to prove her worth." she narrows her eyes at the bar to try to encourage the third drink to be delivered.

Melantha smirks "Well you've got you're ground rules set out pretty clear. Still, I can think of other things to do that doesn't cross that."

The third drink arrives with the addition of a small bowl of nuts. Woulda been quicker but she had to go bind.

"Sorry about that."

With that done she can go back to her usual routine of bar work and eavesdropping.

"See? I knew you'd come round to basketball sooner or later," Jamin says helpfully.

--------------

Jonah frowns.

"She's not gonna go after you, is she?"

"No. Killing your predecessor might be the case for the followers of an evil god, but not my one. The initial target depends on the angel chosen and her temperament, Rhiannon is a strategic and tactical fighters so she'll probably go for the hammerblow and finish Kalidas off when he shows himself. Ariana has been pushing the most so she will be going for a quick and easy kill. That means a...softer target." she takes the third drink and downs one half of it "Do you know what it's like to have a single purpose you've been literally designed and created to do and then have it ripped away and tossed on the pile as if you're a broken part?" she slams her fist down on the table "I'm not broken damnit. I can fight just as well that I did before." her cheeks are getting quite rosy, her constitution might be through the roof but drinking after being teetotal for generations is probably not the best thing to do.

Melantha chuckles "You just keep on thinking that Jamin. You just keep on thinking that."

Jonah looks thoughtful.

"Could you prove that by killing your replacement?"  I mean, gee, that'd solve a lot of problems.

"I'm not allowed to, it's prohibited. Else there would be a lot of infighting, we're avatars of war, we save that for the enemy." she finishes off her drink "Let alone without the godly gifts that I used to have I don't think I'm capable of killing friggern Kalidas at his prime."

Leaving only the 'softer' targets, yikes... Although...

Jonah looks thoughtful.

"What if you killed me and Jamin... And we made it look really good..." she says slowly. "But you let our souls return to Merant's realm so it's not, like, totally permanent or anything. Then you get your job back and everyone gets to live happily ever after."

Melantha's head immediately snaps round when she hears what Jonah said.

Marisela pauses and says carefully "You do know what you're saying, right?"
