The Hissing Beaver

Post  Edythe Elvie on Mon Jul 03, 2017 8:04 pm

From the outside it looks disturbing, rough and unfriendly. Stacked boulders and carved pillars make up most of the building's outer structure that dig into the earth. Its not too far from Cretu's bustling harbor, but the place almost seems abandoned.

It's hard to see through the dusty windows, but the quiet sorrow from within can be felt outside.

As you enter the tavern through the worn, wooden door, you're welcomed by whispers and a feeling of discomfort.
The bartender is sleeping and makes no effort to acknowledge your presence.

It's as gloomy inside as it is on the outside. Wooden beams support the upper floor and their are gas lanterns attached to them. The walls are covered in a layer of dust, making it near impossible to see what the few paintings on the walls are about.

The tavern itself is almost completely abandoned. The few people inside probably work less honorable operations, but whoever they are, you'd like to stay as far away from them as possible.

You did hear rumors about this tavern, supposedly it's infamous for something, but for the life of you you can't remember what for. Though judging by the dirt and unhygienic circumstances, it's probably food poisoning.


(OOC: Wanted to use that description generator and see what happened, it works rather well if I do say so myself! Very Happy)

The man in black sat at his usual booth, a book recounting the history of the White Tower in one hand, and a half empty tankard in the other. His hair was clean, yet unkempt, with a red bandanna keeping the long bangs out of his eyes. The eyes themselves were a deep crimson, which eerily seemed to glow in the low lighting. He frequented often, given its lack of frequent clientele, which made it a perfect place to read; though with such bad lighting, it often lead the other frequent fliers of this particular tavern to think odd of him, and a general wonder how he could read anything in the musty dump.

He had his talents. To say that 'the darkness was kind to him' would be both an understatement and a joke. The quiet parishioner of this house of mead and ale was usually left alone, if not because of his eerie eyes and quiet and serious appearance, it was because of the pair of daggers clearly visible on his person. He only drew'em once in this establishment, and once was all he ever needed. The mark where he slammed the serrated blade into the table, between the fingers of the drunken fool who wanted to start a fight with him, still visible.

He raised his tankard, finishing off the rest of his ale before setting it down and continued reading. Though his eyes scanned the pages, he found his thoughts drifting elsewhere. I wonder how Dominique is doing... with all this 'war' business, the guild has been booming with activity however its been a while since she's been deployed in the field. The Guild Master has been setting us up with a lot of government work. I've been working double duty between the Ebonshifters and the Council of Masters. Master Galaerion has been keeping me busy as of late in that aspect, helping him smuggle more of our countrymen from Abdel's wrath in spite of the Black Emperor being the Avatar of Sirius. Still, Master Galaerion as a member of the Council, has been able to keep our activities hidden from Abdel so far. Still, I'm curious for how long that may be. The old man is good, but we're talking about a man with 60 souls inside him, if not more. Compared to us with our 13... we don't stand much of a chance should he seek our heads. At least in a direct confrontation. But, this is preferable to losing more of our countryman to the Black Serpent... our rituals to become a Master take so much life as it is... we can't afford to lose any more to the likes of that power hungry mongrel. He thought, sighing as he realized he wasn't even reading anymore.

He sets the book down gently and closed it. Rubbing his eyes with his left hand, he wonders if he was becoming too much of a worry wart...

"Need'n a refill, Agust?" asked the sultry tavern worker. Edythe was her name, and she made it a chore to remember the names of what few patrons who visited the Hissing Beaver. She was a beautiful and easy to remember woman given her buxom body, her long uniquely pink colored hair, teal blue eyes and a scar which ran across the front of her face. She was generally kind to customers, but wasn't at all meek; like August, she had made more than enough scenes to make those who frequent the tavern to not mess with her. When she was on shift, it usually meant business was doing well at the Beaver; though that meant the Beaver was having a good four or five patrons for an extended period of four hours, which wasn't much at all. Oddly, the place seemed to never be too concerned about its funds. One would think the dump would have closed shop already, but financially they were stable. Every now and then Edythe would take off for more than a month or so, then business would falter somewhat, then she'd return and business would be back to normal.

"Ye look like a man who is need of a refill, love. Strained thoughts makin' your eyes wander from the pages?" she asked, just having to notice the look of a man who was distracted.

August Darkstalker removed his hand from his weary eyes and turned to face the sultry woman. "Hm?" he grunted, before smirking. "Oh, you can say that. One of my pupils are out on a journey. I was just thinking of them in passing is all." he says before handing her his tankard. "Sure thing Edythe, fill her up." He's seen Edythe here and there, she was quite the bustling waitress here, if you would call her such. "How are your other business practices holding up, milady?" he asked, yawning politely with his hand covering his mouth.
