    Dar sounds soothed, content, uplifted even as the sad music continues. "I ennnjoy music. One of hummmanity's most valuable innnventions."

    Then he turns to Haruki. And leans back a bit, glancing at his wings and other angelic features. "Heeello..." He says, a bit cautious of talking to a creature from human folklore. As I said, he's new here.

    Haruki stares at him blankly. Why? Well, he can tell Dar is somewhat staring at him. A bit too much. He shakes his wings a bit.

    "Uhm...... BOO!" he says, opening them up as wide as possible.

    So... slavers disguised as a circus. That's a new one. What do you mean by "apostasy"?

    Zanny undeadtimes! And is very annoyed as he plays a blue-sparked note to disintegrate the remaining deadtime goo on him.

    "Ug. I need another drink."

    So he is handed another glass of wine. And surveys the room to find someone interesting to talk to.

    Is this Great Maker a deity you worship? There aren't many things he respects, but religion is one of them.

    "Ah, a pessimist. I shall take it into my hands to convert you into the wonderful land of optimism. This is how our songs go.

    Zanny grins and strums his lyre. Electric blue sparks (totally for aesthetic purposes) spring from his fingers. A slow song that gradually gets faster ad faster comes from the enchanted instrument. It gives the sense of being uplifted, and as with all of Zanny's songs, magically affects people's moods. It makes listeners feel hope, confidence, and accomplishment.

    "Oh. Usually claiming life as a farce is what pessimists do. I apologize for mis-labeling you. I am not well versed in the undead. The only things I know about them is that they usually try to eat you. But, hey, if you get along with them, that's fine."

    Zanny raises an eyebrow, but keeps his smirk. His hand continues to play the optimist song almost unconsciously. His lyre doesn't like being played then stopped, played then stopped, played then stopped. So he plays the song a few times over. Hope, confidence, and accomplishment for everyone!

    "Oh. A necromancer. Interesting..."

    Zanny isn't quite so keen on necromancy, though he isn't exactly a paladin himself. He sips wine with one hand while still playing his hope-song with the other.

    Minat looks as though he's about to respond, when a ninja zombie drops from the rafters. "Surgeon Minat, it's time for you to return. You may bring your drink with you."

    From outside the bar, a resounding *CLANG* could be heard. It sounded like somebody dropped a full saucepan from their window onto the street below, though much louder. The noise, strange though it was, was gone in an instant and nothing seemed to come of it.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Outside, though, things are moving rather quickly. The streets were surprisingly clear, so there wasn't much commotion when the man popped into existance with nary a blur or waver in space/time, upside down, wearing breastplate and wielding a warhammer as if he were surrounded by foes.
    Gravity ensued rapidly, bringing the man down to earth with a painful-looking *CLANG*. He picked himself up tenderly, swaying noticeably as he did so. He looked around with uncomprehending eyes before moving towards the largest source of sound nearby, a brightly lit building with a sign above proclaiming it to be Trog's Tavern...

    Minat sighs, a bit unhappily, and allows himself to be escorted out.

    The napkins are left behind, covering his graffiti until somebody removes them or they are blown away by something.

    "Val? Come see," Marcie calls to her friend, who orders a Black Shadow and a llamaade, and then comes over to inspect as well.

    Frowns.

    And re-reads it.

    "Cryptic, prophetic, and doomful," she muses, which draws a nod from her Flemish companion.

    "...that sounds certainly ominious, yes. Could you describe him in more detail?" Val asks everybody's favourite grumbly gnome.

    Marcie, meanwhile, gets the bright idea of grabbing a saltshaker, and taking the message with a few grains tossing some salt on the message, to see what hapens.
