    Ted isn't sure about the red beer, though he is thirsty, and the stories at least are interesting.

    "Maybe if I drink it, the locals would react differently to me. I have a feeling that would mean some react worse, other perhaps better. To learn more, at some point maybe I should. But I wonder how long that stain lasts ..."

    Helen was just sitting and listening to the stories, nibbing on her food.

You are each also served two large steins of a red beer. If you taste the beer it is very bitter, certainly an acquired taste, but when you look at someone who has had a taste, you see their teeth are already staining bright red like blood.

    The waitress is starting to bring out the red drinks to everyone you can see. And those back in the bards corner. From the other room you can hear the songs have ended, but now a story is being told. Something about Grandfather Boar, Grandfather Owl, and Grandfather Wolf
    After returning and checking the room she received, Cheyanne asks, "How do we want to split the sleeping arrangements? I don't like that the rooms are separated, but it will be nice to go to sleep soon." With a big yawn the Irorian looks at the food and drink delivered. It doesn't seem that the food bothers her much, but after a sip of the beer Cheyanne makes a face, squinting her eyes and puckering her lips. "That, is really bitter - much more than I expected. Based on the color I expected a nice, fruity red. This...Mekkulbrau...is more like a dark bitter. Does anyone like theirs?"

    Ted says ”For the room, I’m with Grey, no doubt.

    Well I might as well try the beer then.”


    He drinks some, then puts the mug down.

    ”Hmm … Actually, it tastes kind of good. But, there’s a metallic aftertaste or something like that.”

    "Makes sense. I'm still debating if the wolves are on the outside, inside... or both."

    Rose takes one look at the drink, then to all the stained teeth and NOPEs out of trying it. She'll at least eat the boar and radishes. Yet another thing she wished she could just sprinkle a little magic on. Ah well, at least it's not bad.

    "I guess we can pair up for the night, since we're six members now," Rose comments, having been a moment ago ninja'd by Ted.

    Having fancied herself up, cheyanne does draw more attention before. A fair haired man and a dark haired woman sit with the group. The woman speaks first. Her teeth are red from drinking Mekkulbrau.

    "Well hello pretties, you lot are new. We heard of some Caliban walking a Goblyn around town, seems you are known, but we don't know you. Sharing is caring you know."


    The man looks more interested in Rose, Helen, and Cheyanne, while the women's eyes linger on Akla, Grey, and Ted. He speaks next.

    "Stains your teeth red, so watch out." Grey warns and one might notice he has not touched his own cup of beer "And no, don't like it much. Hopefully, we'll not stay here enough for me to acquire a taste for it."

    "Fine by me. Just remember that light and I are not on best terms, so if you feel someone moving around the room in complete darkness try to call out to me before swinging your axe." Grey says to Ted with a chuckle, still there's a hint of concern.

    When the group finally catches the eye of some of the locals, Grey translates for those who can't understand the language "Seems we have caught the interest of these fellows here. Curious about why there are non-humans among us." that said, he smile amiably to the woman and extends a hand to greet her "I've been called many names, never 'public nuisance' though." he says in the local language, a little joke to break the ice "People usually call me Grey. And if you're looking for a story, have a seat. Drinks on me."
    "Rabbit has Brain. That's why he never understands anything."

    Cheyanne nods at Grey's assessment of the beer and sets hers aside. "Akla, would you like to sleep in my room?" she asks the little goblin woman before the two locals approach the table.

    At the pair's interest in them Cheyanne smiles sweetly before quietly commenting to Rose, "Always two wolves, though not always the same way..." She lets Grey start the conversation, but she does ask, "Caliban? What does that word mean to you? We've traveled a bit, but the last place we were called 'caliban' it wasn't kind to call people that. We don't get to choose our parents, you know?" Then, to soften her words she smiles again and looks to the man as she says, "They say my mother caught my father's eye, though, and that I look like a more exotic version of her. What do you think? Is it a good look?"

    More "fishing" - Cheyanne is not really interested in flirting. If I need to roll a Bluff check or anything, please let me know, @Darius Vibrtrar.

    Helen was being quiet, not really having anything to add at the moment. Still, she smiled and nodded, just to make a good impression - wouldn't hurt, right?

    "Someone ask about the G-word," Rose whispers. She picked up enough of the first part to get context, but decided to just play dumb. She's only been getting bits of the language here and there, and she rather not start into a conversation only to draw a blank stare halfway in. She wonders if Caliban get a different reaction here. N one seems to be recoiling from half the party... not yet anyway.

    Rose nods back. If there were two wolves in her, one would be hungry half the time and the other wanting to throw magic missiles at all her problems. They're probably not the best behaved wolves. She continues to eat, occasionally glancing up and smiling just to show she's listening to the conversation.

    "Guess we're sharing the third room," Rose quietly tells Helen. "I got cotton if you hear me snoring. Or just smother my face with a pillow. Both work." Rose smirks, trying to be a little humorous.

    The group can see Ted and Cheyannes teeth have become red in the light of the tavern.

    The man looks to Grey with a puzzled look. Before pointing to your groups members one by one.

    "Human... human.... Caliban.... Caliban.... Goblyn.... oh! A third human! Aha! You are clever enough, Grey. Tell us about your exploits.

    ANOTHER TWO REFILLS! ON THIS ONE!"


    The man holds up two fingers and points to Grey. The woman glances back to Cheyanne.

    "Caliban? You are just mutations from humanity. The lands of mists corrupt and twist, even the joyous event of birth can be twisted. You inherting some of the non-human features of your parentage is a prime example, you and the one with the horns, and little tail peeking out of the bottom ofher skirt. Strong jaws and tails can be attractive. You go to smaller towns, and you'll see fear, but not here. Though that Goblyn, will get you some stares."

    Now that she's getting a little more accustomed to the language, Akla is able to pick up bits and pieces of the words. But, lacking some critical context, she chooses to stay quiet.

    Ted says to the newcomers "We do have interesting stories we could tell about ourselves. Can you do the same?"
