    Default [Nexus] The Black Dragon's Den III


    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.'

    Raril is provided with one of those looks.

    No. No, not just one of those looks.

    One of those looks.

    No doubt you know the sort all too well.

    "...what of them?" comes the rather cautious reply. Raril no doubt recalls that Zee wasn't very keen on the two little bundles of joy. Probably because she suspects that they're somehow serving as conduits for Cauliflower's eeeeeevil.

    Because that would totally be the sort of thing the sick lich would do.

    Zee wriggles atop her stool, somewhat uncomfortable now.

    The drow shinks a bit under his wife's gaze and averts his eyes, unable to look at her for the moment.

    "They've both grown up and have moved to the Nexus. And my family has it in for all three of us, because I've officially renounced all connection and loyalty to House Xar'Cha."

    Zee may notice that the house Insignia that normally hangs around his neck is missing.

    At first renouncing all ties might seem like a good thing. Until one remembers how much drow just love murdering people they don't like. And quite a few important people probably don't like Raril now.

    Or...

    At least less than they did previously.

    Zee wrinkles her nose.

    What a mess...

    "Grew up and now they're here... of course... Well..." a sigh from the reluctant demoness. "I guess we can just hope that Cauliflower didn't implant his soul in one of his offspring or something..."

    Because dealing with Cal is never much fun.

    Ah yes, the Den. The Nexus's current designated wretched hive, the seediest of the taverns around.

    It certainly tends to magnetize more unsavory sorts.

    And others.

    Someone rather strange enters. This person isn't very strange in appearance, though, other than her oddly gray eyes.

    Spoiler
    Show


    In fact, other than that one detail, she looks rather average and unremarkable.

    The strange part is that she seems to exude a strong 'aura' of sorts, one that tends to cause those unprotected from such effects to feel repulsed from her, to dislike her, or even hate her, for no reason other than it.

    She stops just after entering, glancing around, probably expecting a poor reaction to her entrance.

    After all, what else would someone with an aura like that expect in this place, which practically caters to those who would more often react extremely badly to it?

    Raril shakes his head. "Not unless he's hidden it well. Ilpholin, my daughter, is Drow for certain, but not overly evil as far as I can tell. At the very least, she didn't kill me when she had the chance. Nadas, on the other hand, I have a lot of hope for." The drow pauses and glances around the room, before waving a hand and dropping a misty bubble around himself and Zee. No need to risk anyone eavesdropping, especially in a place like the Den. "He's staying at GLoG, the last I knew, which I take as a good sign. When I spoke with him, he didn't seem to want much to do with me. I can't really blame him for that. They both think I abandoned them for twenty years, when it was hardly a few months for me. Seems you weren't the only one experiencing slipping timestreams."

    Sunn attempts to pull on the ears of the badger, trying to use them as reins, and digs her heels into its rump. She's reasonably experience at riding.

    Kara gets up and walks over towards Raril, being blocked out when the misty bubble pops up. She makes a little disappointed noise, and her ears droop a little in sadness.

    The newcomer with the repulsive aura has evidently dodged getting attacked on arrival...for now.

    She finds herself a seat, looking over the menu, seemingly ignorant to all the glares she's currently getting from NPC patrons.

    A young woman enters the 'Den' carefully. She is dressed in a very conservative black traveling dress, she got neatly combed shoulder-length raven black hair, blue expressive eyes. Her body shape is very lean and slightly hourglass shaped, with quite white skin.

    "This looks pretty much the way you told me Kev..." She sigh "Very well, let's try have a pleasant dinner anyway." She says to the man entering behind her.

    The woman with the repulsive aura continues to be apparently oblivious to her surroundings, even as a large, burly man comes up behind her with a baseball bat, and...

    Rather brutally brings it down on her head, repeatedly.

    She is affected by this-or appears to be affected by it-as any normal person would, and seems to be either out cold or dead.

    I wonder if anyone here will care...?

    Hey! Someone noticed!

    A small and furry, yet hat-wearing, weasel-like mammal looks up and scampers over.

    Ermine looks at the body, before looking at the man.

    "Good work. 'Ated 'er."

    The pirate scratches her chin.

    "Senseless murder ain't really too good thou', mebe some o' dat first aidy stuff should be used."


    Ermine takes off her hat and searches around in it for a basic first aid kit. Which she finds. In the hat. She tries to apply the first aid kit to the hate-aura woman. Oh yes, and search her pockets and such for cash.

    The NPC tries to kick Ermine away as she gets out the first aid kit. "Nah, let the bitch stay dead. We should just toss 'er in a trashcan somewhere and hope she doesn't get back up."

    Ermine may noticed that, in one of the woman's limp hands, a black, swirling mist has appeared, and extends to a point fitting for a typical sword...

    She'll probably also notice that the hand is clenching into a fist, or something close to it, like someone's grip on a sword hilt. Oh dear, Ms. Hate isn't dead.

    The NPC, however, remains oblivious to this.

    Ermine is kicked away!

    ...

    "Oh 'ells no, ye did'nae just kick me! I'll blow yer leg off and then shove a peg-leg into yer bleedin' wound!"


    The pirate takes another thing out of her hat. It's a musket. Which she aims at the NPC, but she doesn't fire it quite yet.

    "Now ye're gunna apologize and then buy every'un a round o' drinks, ain't you?"

    Anger issues. Ermine barely notices the sword.

    The NPC laughs. "Hah! What is that, a peashoot-"

    Ermine, and others around, may suddenly notice a few things.

    The first is that the repulsive aura has disappeared. The second is that the woman who generated it has bolted up, the NPC not noticing due to his attention being focused on mocking the small furry mammal's choice in weaponry.

    The third is that the woman is now holding a jet-black sword, and the fourth is that she impales the burly NPC through the heart with it.

    He doesn't even have time to die in shock, as the sword suddenly warps, the blade extending out of his chest disappearing in a black mist, and the remaining portion of it apparently splitting and exploding out vertically in a solid, razor-sharp black circle from within the man's chest.

    The NPC, needless to say, is very dead, and the area is now very messy.

    The sword/circle vanishes in a black mist as well, now, which soon disappears entirely. The woman mutters to herself. "One less senseless murderer..."

    "Oh. 'OLY %[email protected]#!"

    Ermine lowers the musket to look at the woman with surprise. And take a step or two back.

    "Bwah?"

    The pirate is, for once, speechless. She gropes about for a bottle of rum to drink.

    "That would be my own way of getting rid of those who would hurt or kill others for no reason. The aura doesn't give reasons for the emotions it encourages." The woman sounds...almost casual about this, and a familiar black swirly mist appears over areas most...messy from the NPC-explosion.

    It seems to be collecting the, ah...blood and guts.

    "Ooo...Kay..."

    Ermine has found that rum now. Which she takes a long chug of.

    "A bit... Messy. An' extreme."

    The pirate puts her musket back in the hat.

    The woman shrugs."A bit much on the messiness, yes, but it guarantees a very quick death and has more psychological impact on others who might try it. I know this place's reputation." The woman glances at a few NPCs who were glaring at her earlier. They're quite terrified. Into silence, in fact.

    By this point, the mist has collected the worst of the mess from the NPC, and combined into a black ball in the air, with spots of red.

    "And no, I'm not one of those. I'm just making the most of a curse."

    The identical text colors are probably getting annoying for everyone else by now.

    "Ah. Ye got a name?"

    Ermine takes a drink of rum.

    "Mine be Ermine. It's also what I am, before ye start callin' me a weasel. Or worse."

    "Worse" being, in this case, "Ferret". Which Ermine takes as a huge insult.

    Sienna is a popular color. v.v
