    Default Taverna Generica 7

    Taverna Generica
    TAVERNA: Teh Acronym's Victoriously Extraordinary Realm of Nice Alcohol Yes, The is not normally included. Hence, "teh"
    or
    PUB: Place of Uberous Bavardage Credit for that to Blue Umbrella for that particular Acronym

    Reasoning for this thread: Townies complained that ACRONYM players and characters were intruding, destroying their plots, and generally making a nuisance of themselves. This thread (and perhaps others that may follow in its vain) are by no means trying to replace town, but are trying to offer ACRONYM players the chance to show their characters off in a non-ACRONYM base environment. In the same way, we are in no way saying that because this thread is here, it will stop ACRONYM players from using the Town. We also remind Townies that we are not saying you cannot post here. Yet, we dissuade you from doing so.

    Before you stands a stout, heavy building, constructed from dark, grey stones, with crossbeams latticing neatly across the foundation, up to the heavy wooden, and thatched, roof above. An inn sign hangs outside, eroded by age, the image undecipherable, the name withered: TAVERNA GENERICA.
    On the front door, someone, most likely eons ago, has inscribed the same words, and the words Townies, Keep Out! Someone has also hung a sign, offering ACRONYMers work in the bar, permanently.
    The tavern is in walking distance from any Acronym organisation. This, I stress most heavily, is not to be abused so you can run amok. It is so characters with no teleport capabilities can come to the inn. Yes, it makes no sense, considering that the organisations are miles apart, in some cases, even further. It just is.

    Inside, there is a large bar area, capable of seating at least one hundred people, with tables, big and heavy, and dark red leather chairs, aged yet comfy, littered about in a disorganised style. Old, oil paintings, of landscapes and battles, are hung randomly about the place, and a roaring fire constantly blazes to one side, nicely illuminating the baby grand piano. Behind the bar, an assortment of NPCs man the bar, all middle-aged, pot-bellied men, with bad body odour, and too much stubble. The occasional good-time girl (legal), and, recently, boy (legal) (working as a bar wench/manwench) also serves as a bar(wo)man at times. And, still further behind them, are the drinks, many hundreds of thousands of them, ranging from the mundane, to the mystic. From the bar, one can also buy typical bar foodstuffs, like pork scratchings, and dragon-flavoured nuts and kettle chips. One can also order proper food, in dizzying variety, from the kitchen. By the bar, a sign reads "No Wanton Telepathy, Please.". The only regular barmaid/hostess/front-of-house is Yasmin Lewis.
    Behind the bar is a large kitchen area, designed to cater for large functions, staffed by unnamed NPC slaves and servants. The technology in the kitchen has been imported from another dimension, there are incinerators, ovens, microwaves, and fridges, unlike the typical level of tech in this dimensional quadrant.

    Beneath the kitchen and bar area, accessible through a hidden staircase, lies the gigantic, mysterious wine cellar, filled with ancient drinks, and age-old graffiti, filled with dust, and the occasional pair (or more) making hot nookie beside the bottles, barrels, fine clarets, vintage burgundies, and other fine wines...
    Above the bar and kitchen, for three floors, lie rooms, varying in taste and decor, available as homes, and as places to stay the night. There are NPC cleaners who circulate among the rooms every few days or so, to clean up after the notoriously dirty out-of-dimension ACRONYMers.
    There's a small stables outside, where horses, ponies, and smaller mounts can be stored, and the NPC stableboys are perfectly capable of sending larger mounts and vehicles to other, larger, holding places off-site, when required to. There is an NPC heavy warhorse stored there, by the name of Cookie, created by Kaela, who can be rented for dramatic entrances, and the like.

    The only spells on the inn are ones that prevent alcohol from being watered down, and another that stops the entire inn being destroyed. Portals, and teleports, are perfectly allowed within, though frowned upon if they appear in places where they're not wanted.

    However, one of the semi-permanent residents of the place is the demigoddess Tessa Camlar. She is somewhat protective of the premises and tends to quickly repair any damage. (Kaelaroth is allowed to godmod her for this purpose.)

    IC Rules are as follows:
    Spoiler
    Show
    1. No listening to unhappy songs during happy hour!
    2. No killing the staff.
    3. No vandalism.
    4. No thieving!
    5. Not so much a rule, but we'd like to remind customers that we retain the right to refuse and kill customers, and no responsibility can be taken on our part if you're evicted, injured, or killed, by Taverna employees.
    Breaking of the rules may earn ACRONYMers banning from the tavern, or a fine. Or, in certain cases, other ACRONYMers, or NPC policemen and bounty hunters, may be employed to hunt down the nasty, nasty people who broked the rules.


    OOC Rules are as follows:
    Spoiler
    Show
    1. No controlling the NPCs to do anything that would be considered unlike them to do. You're permitted to make them serve your character(s) a drink, but no, let's say, make them get drunk and burn the place down. Of course, you could always make it clear your character is mind-controlling them into doing such as thing, for example, but you cannot make them do anything out of the ordinary, and make it seem as if they were doing it out of their own free will.
    2. No destroying the place. You're allowed to damage it, but destroying it just takes the fun out of it for all the other players.
    3. No godmoding. Even if it's permitted in some ACRONYMs, it isn't in others, and therefore shall not be allowed in the taverna.
    4. Players are allowed to make NPCs speak in whatever tone, colour, and font they so choose. If I, the thread runner, am not online, NPCs can be played by anyone.

    Repeated rule violaters (in nearly all circumstances OOC, but perhaps IC), can be punished by being IC banned from the thread. And therefore OOC banned to, under threat of mod being called to remove you for breaking thread rules.
    Any other rules can be submitted by PM, and can be considered. Please bear in mind that the rules of this thread may update. Alerts that updates have been made will be made clear on the rest of the thread.

    The hired building crew comes in and starts building the extention of the new plaque, but they lack the words to write, having only "Taverna Generica" to work with.

    So they start making suggestions, some as stupid and unuseable like "The best B.O.O.Z.E. in the A.C.R.O.N.Y.M.S."

    Vespe shrugs, since his player can't stick around much longer either, and leaves, deciding to leave his query for later.

    Crey snaps under the gaze, and sends a lance of Negative Energy strong enough to slay a man ten times over at the Undead Slayer.

    Crey loses interest, and shifts his gaze to Reinholdt and Calublufiok.

    Well who knows why Calublufiok is here? Probably waiting for Nomlas or something.

    Reinholdt will take notice of Crey. Then look at him oddly. He seems familiar... Reinholdt will head over. "I'm sorry to ask this, but have we met before?"

    He only barely recognizes some similar qualities from the statue of Crey, but isn't sure how to place it.

    "I'm sure you will." Reinholdt will turn and head up to his room to deadtime.

    Calublufiok puts up a super-ultra-magic-impenetrable-bubble in order to deadtime.

    In other words, he knows how to cast the deadtime spell. He's that powerful. In fact, he invented deadtime ooze. *nods*

    Vespe chuckles at Tessa's quaint little "laws of physics" and teleports back down to the main room. He walks over to her. Hey, Tessa? Do you have any books on souls I could borrow? I met an incubus the other day, and now I'm interested in the theological implications of having so many different incarnations.

    Vespe goes and hides in a booth, feeling vaguely ashamed from the "I thought he wanted to learn something" comment. He opens up the book, hoping that

    A: It isn't an "S is for Souls" pop-up book or something like that, and
    B: It actually contains something useful and/or relevant, and he won't have to go back to the big scary pile of books.

    It's a technical introduction to the subject--challenging, but probably within Vespe's capabilities to learn. The author is Tessa Camlar Fairley.

    Having nothing better to do, and insatiable curiosity, Vespe starts reading the book, and probably won't stop until he's finished, or unless, say, the Taverna is suddenly set ablaze. And even then, it's only 1d6 damage per minute, so he'll probably keep reading for a while after that.
