View Full Version : First Floor Commons Area
12th December 2008, 02:58
A large room, near the entryway, the commons area bears much resemblance to a pub, including an attached storage area containing food and numerous types of a wide range of booze.
12th December 2008, 03:17
"Nice place, James" Vice says, walking into the commons area from the entrance, immediately smelling alcohol and noticing the bar "BOOZE!" he yells, dashing towards the bar and stopping in front of it, then jumping over it, landing behind it and searching the shelf in the back, finding a pint glass and filling it with beer "I love this place. I never want to leave!" he says, then takes a drink from his pint, smiling as he looks at the door, waiting for the others to come in

She shakes her head at the childish behavior. "Oh brother..." she said, sliding up to the bar herself. "Wonder if they got any sake..."
12th December 2008, 04:07
12th December 2008, 04:08
Vice ducks behind the bar, then returns with a jug of Sake and a small dish-like object in his hands, which he then sets on the bar "Fresh sake, I believe" he says, pouring some into the dish, then smiling "Drink up, the old man has plenty of it down there"
12th December 2008, 04:11
She nods a soft "Thank you," before she starts to sip it quietly.
12th December 2008, 04:11
Mayra's reaction was simple; she danced around the room, making off-hand remarks, before finally settling into a bar stool. She shifted upon it, looking oddly dissatisfied. Brushing that off after a quick second, she looked up at the man behind the bar, and began rambling off a long list of teas, almost as if she were ordering every single one.
12th December 2008, 04:37
"We aint got Tea here. We only have booze." Vice says, taking a drink from his pint and smiling "That's the best beer I ever tasted"
12th December 2008, 04:41
At that point, several tea kettles, filled with hot tea, come seemingly floating out of the back storage. These are set down in front of Mayra. Nothing seems to happen immediately after that, though...
12th December 2008, 04:48
Mayra grins with all the happiness in the world, clasping her hands together in absolute joy as she grabs a cup and a kettle, singing a song that has nothing to do with the beverages in front of her.

"Well ah'll be damned," Franklin says seeing everybody tucking into the alcohol already. "You'll know how ta' start early." Dropping his bags with a loud bang he walks over to the bar to check it out. After a few minutes looking Franklin grabs a random bootle and rips the top clean off. He then downs the bottle in one go. "Oh, tha' hits the spot," he says as he lets out a sigh of delight. A few moments later though Franklins stomach lets out a loud rumble which is followed by the loudest fart anyone has ever heard. The stench following it is enough to deliver a fatal blow to a new born child. "'Scuse me,"
12th December 2008, 20:18
A high-pitched yip, and something akin to a very low whimper can be heard in the distance.
Suddenly, two thunderclaps can be heard from outside, just as a pair of window-sized holes are made in two places on the outside walls of the room.
James' voice can be heard from outside. "Finally! Somebody got rid of that damn demon poodle..."
12th December 2008, 20:23
"Ah demon poodle?" Franklin repeats as he looks outside the doors. "Wha' kind o' place is this anyway?"
12th December 2008, 20:29
James hops in through one of the holes in the wall. "Basically, it was a normal poodle, just more high-strung. And high-pitched. Damn near invincible too. Weird stuff like that, or people just randomly appearing in the front courtyard always seems to happen around here."
He then stops talking, and downs both of the Hurricanes that he'd been carrying, setting the glasses down on the nearest table.
12th December 2008, 20:33
"Ah wondered how I ended up here..." Franklin says to himself, looking off into space. "Ah thought it was peculiar, ah was walking through the forest and next minute ah end up here. And that's some impressive drinking, mister." Franklin adds as he watches James down the two glasses.
12th December 2008, 20:37
James shrugs. "What do you expect? Technically, I am a booze deity. Also seem to have influence in other areas. Don't worry about any formalities, though. I really don't give a flying rat fuck about them. And all drinks around here are free." He pauses, then points at Franklin. "Just make sure you're near an open window, if that kind of fart happens again."
12th December 2008, 20:55
"Ah booze deity?" Franklin lets out a friendly chuckle. "Now ah've heard ev'rythin'. And ah cant promise anything, but ah'll try. Alcohol always gets me like tha'."
12th December 2008, 21:04
Mithral looked up a bit as she poured a second dish of sake, then shrugged again, returning to her drink.
12th December 2008, 21:29
Vice, who was rendered practically dead from the fart, has stopped breathing, even though his raised right foot twitches occasionally "God Damn, man. What the hell did you eat!?" he yells, and asks at the same time "Smells like someone killed a skunk and left it to rot for a month" he says, standing and shaking his head "Warn everybody before you do that so I can put on a gas mask."
12th December 2008, 21:44
Bob wonders in, completely lost.
"Umm, could anyone here help? I have no idea where I am, why I'm here or how I got here!"
12th December 2008, 21:46
"Sorry 'bout tha'," Franklin says turning to Vice. "Alcohol does tha' to me ev'rytime. Mah gran'fathers brew was always th' worst though, guaranteed to have me passing gas for at least ah minute."
Franklin begins fishing around in one of his bags. "Ah got th' recipe aroun' here somewhere." He says before finding it and taking it out. "Aha! Ah'll be able to make it wi' this."
12th December 2008, 21:47
James looks at Franklin again. "Outside. If you drink that stuff at all...Outside."
12th December 2008, 22:01
((I said that I'd be bringing back the epic farts xD))
"Aye, if ah do then ah'll drink it outside," Franklins hoists his bags up yet again and turns back to James. "Where exac'ly will we be sleeping?" Franklin asks James.
12th December 2008, 22:05
"Eh, just find an empty room that you like. Then use it."
12th December 2008, 22:13
"Yeah okay," Franklin says before setting off upstairs, the stairs creak and threaten to give way under Franklins immense size though thankfully they manage to support him.
12th December 2008, 22:17
Thomas enters and starts looking at the holes that used to be windows to see the damage.
12th December 2008, 22:19
The edges of the holes, oddly enough, are clean. They're also comfortably cool, should Thomas try to touch them.
12th December 2008, 23:21
"Well I can deffinitely refit windows into these holes... I just need windows." Thomas mutters as he inspects the holes hand on his tool belt.
12th December 2008, 23:46
"There should be a storage room a short ways down the nearest hallway. Try there."
13th December 2008, 00:12
Thomas nods and heads down that hallway.
13th December 2008, 00:44
"Wait for me!" Vice yells, jumping over the counter and running after Thomas "I want to help. Better than being a barkeep"
13th December 2008, 00:45
Thomas chuckles. "I'm not really certified to train anyone though..." He says modestly as he opens the door to the supply room.
13th December 2008, 00:47
"Yeah, but I can carry stuff for you" Vice says, walking into the supply room "Pardon me, alcohol makes me a bit hyper"
13th December 2008, 00:49
"We need two replacement windows you see any in here?" Thomas asks as he looks around the supply closet.
13th December 2008, 00:51
"Right here" Vice says, grabbing two windows and carrying them with him out of the supply closet and out into the common area "Hurry up!"
13th December 2008, 00:52
Thomas chuckles again but keeps a steady even pace heading back out into the commons.
13th December 2008, 00:53
"Get to fixin! I want to watch you work. Apparently, when I watch someone work, I can learn what they're doing in a heartbeat" Vice says, setting the windows down gently next to the holes in the wall
13th December 2008, 00:56
Thomas starts installing the windows using nails to hammer them into a wall and then with a level checking to make sure they were well level.
13th December 2008, 00:58
"Nice technique." Vice says, running over and grabbing his pint, then taking a drink and sighing "Damn good ale"
13th December 2008, 01:00
"Thanks I guess." Thomas says blushing slightly.
14th December 2008, 17:24
Right about the time the new windows are installed...*Something* happens.
The sake that Mithral's working on seems to get tipped, probably spilling some on her.
14th December 2008, 17:28
Franklin makes his way back downstairs only to see that most of the people havent moved from where they were since he left them.
"Well, don't you all want to find rooms for you'selves or wha'?" He asks the room aloud adding a small chuckle at the end.
14th December 2008, 19:03
She sputters a bit as the jug pours on her, quickly catching it and setting it back down. "Aw damn," she grumbled as her kimono got soiled. "Excuse me for a bit, will you?"
14th December 2008, 21:03
A few footsteps can be heard heading away from Mithral...Behind the bar.
James merely rolls his eyes, then throws a nearby mug in the general direction of the footsteps. It merely bounces off of the floor.
14th December 2008, 22:19
She peers over at the footsteps in curiousity. Subconsiously, she reforms her weapon into her hand. "What is that?" she asks.
15th December 2008, 00:54
"I do believe it is that invisible gnome that mister James was speaking of outside." Vice says, his tone more refined "If that little thing decides to get over here, I've got a pint for it" he says, holding out his pint of beer
15th December 2008, 02:15
The mug that James had thrown earlier comes flying back out, aimed at Vice.
James shrugs at whatever follows, and comments, "I said dwarf, not gnome...He kind of takes exception to anyone making that mistake."
15th December 2008, 02:17
Mithral shrugged, and headed for the door to the rooms.
15th December 2008, 02:42
The mug hits Vice square on the forehead, Vice just standing there motionless for three seconds, before falling over backwards "Little bastard. I think I need to go lay down now" he says, standing and heading towards the door to the rooms
15th December 2008, 04:09
Finding the door open, Ronell sticks his head in while knocking. "P-p-p, p-p-p, shittingdicknipples. Excuse me but can someone tell me where in the 9 heavens I'm at?"
15th December 2008, 18:40
"Ah dwarf, ya' say?" Franklin asks James. "C'mere lil' fella," Franklin says as he walks towards the bar, his hulking frame barely able to fit through the archway. He offers the dwarf a bottle of alcohol that he had brought down with him, well he offers it in what he assumes to be the general direction that the dwarf is in.
15th December 2008, 23:17
Somewhere in all of this, James has somehow vanished from the room, along with his aide (of sorts).
The offered bottle...doesn't seem to get touched at all...
16th December 2008, 00:31
Seeing the bar, Ronell's eyes go wide and he gets a goofy grin on his face. "W-w-woohoo I've died and gone to alcohol heaven, turkey testicles, I mean this place has everything." As he's yelling this he jumps over the bar to get a better look. Unfortunately he's so clumsy he falls over the bar head first with a crash.
"W-w-w, w-w-w, ah damn. Strange I don't normally fall down till after I get to the booze." He says standing up and hugging as much of the bar as he can with a sigh.
19th December 2008, 07:20
A roar of fury comes from Mithral's room as she notices something wrong. After some silence, she stomps to the top of the stairs, stuck in a tower and holding her sword. "GOD DAMMIIT! WHO THE HELL TURNED THE SPRING WATER INTO VODKA!!!"
21st December 2008, 02:21
(Leaves to go check out other rooms and find one forhimself as well.)
23rd December 2008, 04:23
Vice comes out of his room in time to heart the screaming "Ow, tone it down, lady. Some of us just woke up" he says, rubbing his right temple with his right hand "I personally prefer beer, thank you. If they had a Beer fountain in this crazy-ass house, I'd be in heaven." he says, now moving his right hand to rub his eyes "'Course, that'll never happen"
23rd December 2008, 04:28
James can be heard distractedly hollering from deeper within the house. "Third floor, fourth hallway to right, then find the terraced garden. Should be there...Actually, that area may be next to your room."
23rd December 2008, 04:33
The area where Vice was is replaced with a smoke after-image, from Vice dashing out of the room towards said Terrace in said Hallway
1st January 2009, 01:28
James' voice rings out through the building. "TO THE INNER COURTYARD! SOUND GENERAL QUARTERS! MAN THE BATTLEMENTS!"
Just after his call to arms, a voice that isn't James' hollers out. "ALL ABOARD!" Laughter can be heard following it.
1st January 2009, 03:28
Moments later, a loud scream can be heard from upstairs in Vice's room "BEER!" is all that can be discrened from his shouts of glee echoing through the house
