    Default [Nexus] The Black Dragon's Den II



    A thin plank of wood hangs beneath the old grey sign:

    Under New Management
    This old warehouse by the docks and on the edge of the city slums has numerous secret passageways and tunnels leading to it. When you walk in, either from the street or below, 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 back half of the building has been converted into a set of rooms, used by those who need a bit of privacy, whether to have a private card game, hold a secret meeting, or just to get away from the world while enjoying a dose of some of the more exotic items the Den serves. We don't care what you do here, just don't leave a mess. Just keep in mind, the walls are a little thin back there, and can be listened through (or busted through), so be careful.

    The gambling scene is lively here, with craps, three-dragon ante, and darts, among other things. There are certainly not knife-fights held in the ring in the basement. Come early for a ringside seat. Gambling is permitted. Anyone caught betting against themselves will be killed, or worse. So don't do it.

    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:

    Drinks

    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.
    Spoiler
    Show

    Absinthe
    Ale
    Beer
    Brandy
    Coffee
    Hard Cider
    Kumis (Fermented milk)
    Mead
    Rum
    Tea
    Tequila
    Vodka
    Whiskey
    Wine


    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...
    Spoiler
    Show
    Black Shadow-
    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.
    Devil Brew-
    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.
    Firewine-
    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.
    Frenzywater-
    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.
    Ichor Liquor-
    A mixture of blood and alcohol made especially for our vampiric friends. It can be served neat, on the rocks, or specially heated to 98.6 F.
    Liquid Agony-
    A drink brewed and distilled from the agony of victims, and quite sweet and tasty, but very addictive.
    Mindflayer Mead-
    A special brew for those squid-headed fellows. Also appropriate for Zombies, or anyoen else who likes the taste of brains.
    Mushroom Wine
    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.
    Poisonbite Cocktail-
    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.
    Rat Mead-
    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.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Crazy Cocktail-
    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.
    Ingredients:

    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.
    False Valhalla-
    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.


    Other

    Food
    Like the drinks, the food ranges in quality and price... the menu is currently under improvement.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Bread-
    Crusty, burnt, soggy, or rotten. It's not your choice. A better bakery is "under construction" in the back. Thanks to a newly built brick oven, the bread is actually quite good now, baked fresh daily.
    Dragon Steak-
    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.
    Soup-
    Most common soups are available, but pay for what you want, or you'll get something else. Served in a bread bowl.


    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...
    Spoiler
    Show
    Amanita-
    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.
    Chanterelle-
    An edible but unremarkable mushroom. Available pickled or dried.
    Lorchel-
    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).
    Morchella-
    Also known as morels, these very prized and tasty mushrooms are available raw.
    Omphalotus-
    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.
    Oyster-
    Unlike other mushrooms, this one has no confusing look alikes, and is prized for that quality alone. Served raw or stuffed.
    Porcini-
    Also known as Boletus ("superior"), the porcini is highly regarded and is served raw or sautéed with butter.
    Portabello-
    While edible, this is either described as plain or only slightly sweet. Available raw or stuffed.
    Psilocybin-
    This mushroom is famed for its hallucinogenic effects, while lacking dangerous toxins. Available raw and dried.
    Shiitake-
    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.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Doze Pill-
    A combination of magical energies and herbs guaranteed to put the drinker to sleep in a few minutes.
    Hanger's Drop-
    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.
    Happy Juice-
    As seen in Malleo's shop. Turns the hair pink, and makes the drinker extremely happy.
    Wonder Trip-
    A mixture of magic and poison that causes extreme hallucinations and delirium which are not directly harmful or toxic.

    Other Additives are available, you just have to ask.


    Other Drugs
    If it doesn't get you drunk, and it isn't a mushroom... we still sell it.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Arhtorvin
    A gray powder made by different magic plants, Arthorvin is extremely calming. It is ingested, and numbs emotions and reactions.
    Baccaran
    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.
    Dreammist
    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.
    Devilweed
    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.
    Luhix
    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.
    Mertoran Leaf
    This leaf is dried and treated. It is not very addictive, but it is cheap, popular, and boosts confidence. Ingested, not smoked.
    Redflower Leaves
    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.
    Sannish
    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.

    This is by no means the limit of what we can get our hands on, just ask and we'll see what we can do.


    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.

    Coin Pass
    Spoiler
    Show
    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.


    Serpent's Eyes
    Spoiler
    Show
    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.


    Warship
    Spoiler
    Show
    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.

    Darts
    Spoiler
    Show
    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.


    Knife Fights
    Spoiler
    Show
    We hold knife fights here every once in a while, down in the basement. To surrender or death. Place your bets, folks.
    -No current list of PC fighters. Contact management to arrage something 'formal.'

    Anyu accepts the more expensive wine. It really is good.

    "But you haven't told me much about it, have you?" she says to Teb.

    She looks at Maggy. "So they pay well, huh? Color me interested."

    Tebtranlyn shrugs. " There isn't much more to say. I'm an agent that has been sent here to the surface for various tasks. We could just use some help. The pay is good and we will contact you when we have need of your skills. Though that doesn't mean you can't contact us for...

    Magtok rolls his eyes at the mention of a knife killing him. Like one little clone would make a difference.

    We're dedicated to generally taking what's rightfully ours and declaring stuff to be rightfully ours before taking it and my head feels weird. Our base is built into a valcano, and not some smelly, moist, mushroom-filled cave. I just got back from kidnapping a little while ago, we're thinking of ransoming him back to his employers after shaving AMEN's name onto the back of his head and we won a war against France once...I think. Feeling kinda woozy...bartender, get the lady an even fancier drink than the last, please.

    Magtok wobbles a bit closer to the edge of the table.

    "Awww, man. I wish I could help you out with that stuff. Sadly, I'm a lot better at making things bleed than making them stop bleeding." She reaches into her pocket and pulls out a vial, then picks up a few drops of the blood. After that, she pours in some of the drink. "I'll have use for this later. Well, then." She drinks the rest. "Ah, this is really good stuff. Shall we go?"

    Magtok takes a step forward, falling right off the table. Instead of landing on his face though, he ends up standing horizontally, hovering in mid-air with his nose perpendicular to the floor, before he grabs a chair and pulls himself back up.

    Sure. Let's just hurry this up, though. I'm going to die soon, and I'd rather leave my body somewhere away from the general public so another me can pick it back up and dispose of it properly and keep all the fancy gadgets away from any smelly scavengers. Oh right, forgot to mention that, there are other Magtoks.

    The cyborg floats towards the door, with a hand over the bleeding side of his mouth. All of this talking is just making his wound even worse.

    Cyborg has cloning technology.

    Merrak makes a mental note. He's compiling everything he learns in a report to send back to his drow superiors. Detailing the various organizations and the members of note.

    Raril chuckles and shakes his head. "No, thank you. I actually don't have time to stay for a drink. I only wanted to drop in and make sure the place was still in one piece, not that I doubt your management skills, my dear, but that gas-bomb has me a tad paranoid." The drow explains.

    Kara pouts at Raril. The fact that she's listening to the Gent at the same time rather aids her in this.

    But I wanna talk to you!

    She stares at him, with puppy-dog eyes. The fact that hers are yellow, like some breeds of dog, will help this.

    That is indeed hard to resist.

    "Oh fine." Raril sighs. "One glass couldn't hurt." He decides.

    Kara grins at him, vaulting over the bar to grab a bottle and a glass, pouring for him.

    She's quite good at this.

    Anything you could advise me to try? I've tried and liked mead, but I've never tried another alcohol I like.

    Riv waits until Katie and Angie have been gone for a while, then sits down in his favorite seat, which they were taking up.

    The drow takes a sip from his glass, thinking. "Well, if you like sweeter drinks, you could try liquers, some wines and champagnes are on the sweet side, too." Raril suggests, whilst gently swirling the wine around in his glass.

    Can you suggest a sweet wine for me, then?

    She smiles at him, interlocking her fingers and stretching her hands out so that her joints crack.

    The drow scans the stock of bottles on the shelf behind the bars. "Hmm... Try a bit from that one there." He point to a fat, round green glass bottle with a bit of red wax on its neck. "It's a port wine, fairly sweet, as wines go."

    Kara nods, taking it down from the shelf and putting it onto the bar for Raril to open.

    She's not really fond of the idea of breaking some of Raril's stock.

    Raril flicks his wrist and an odd set of tools appears in his hand. Another flick and he's selected a corkscrew from the set and uses it to open the bottle. The cork slides out with a light pop and the drow reaches for a fresh glass, pouring a small measure of the port wine into it. He then slides the glass to Kara.

    "Here, try a sip."

    Kara picks up the glass, giving it a sniff.

    Well, here goes.

    She, in a single movement, tips all of the glass into her mouth. She then moves it around in her mouth, sticking her tongue out a few times so she can taste it on the back of her tongue.

    This seems odd.

    Raril watches all this, a strange expression on his face. "That... wasn't a sip..."

    Kara swallows the port, and beams.

    I like it!

    Raril should probably remember that Kara is genetically programmed for quaffing.

    He chuckles and slides the bottle over to her. "Enjoy it, then. You deserve it." He also recalls that with her heritage, it would be nearly impossible for her to get drunk, and so sees no problem with giving her the entire bottle.

    Kara smiles, and picks up the bottle, taking a swig.

    Anything you'd like to eat? I had a steak earlier, but I'm still kinda hungry.

    "Steak" is a bit of a misnomer. What she had was more like half a cow.

    But then, we don't know WHERE the Den gets its meat...

    Let's just say it probably wasn't cow.

    "Sure, I could eat something." Raril decides. "Thanks."
