-Puts on his metagame aviator shades, (they're bind-on-equip)- I know what you're doing!

-Jumps out of the booth, front-flipping over the counter and reaching into the fridge for a raspberry iced tea.-

I believe I'm more qualified to be behind the counter, Mr. Bartender.

-elbows Senescence in the crotch as he is flipping for he is wearing Omniscient Contact Lenses-

You're out of line there, buddy! -breaks the plastic bottle of raspberry juice over the counter, and holds it like a sharp object toward Senescence- Wanna tussle with me? Huh? Do you?!

-Cringes as the blow lands on his nether regions, muttering 'Oh, grace...' as he stands up and attempts to brush it off while meeting Jian's eyes.-

A tussle, huh? Well, how sweet the sound.

-Makes an attempt to grab the hand with the harmless plastic bottle and steps forward ferociously, thrusting his left palm towards Jian while muttering softly.- Was blind, but now... I see.

-Then a hidden blade would eject from my palm, aimed just so carefully for that carotid artery upon Jian's neck.-

On second thought, I really don't. I have this back condition; it's called scoliosis, ever heard of it? And my doctor says I shouldn't do anything that might result in me ending up dead. So, let's call it a truce, and I'll give you that uh... Lemon flavored peach ice tea. What do you say?

-Shrugs.- Violence is pretty cliche in taverns, don't you agree? Besides, I like lemon.

And hidden blades from video games even more so. -sits behind the bar, and resumes drinking his now lukewarm apple juice-

So, where'd you get that hidden blade of yours?

Ah, yeah. I borrowed that. It's sentimental, belonged to a really cool dead guy that did a lot of parkour.

Let me guess, you took it off of him after he missed a step?

-passes Xiagan a tall glass of chocolate milk with a shot of Kahlua- Thanks to That's 70' Show, I know what Kahlua is, but we're out of cream, sorry.

*while Xiagan is waiting for his chocolate milk, he walks over to the jukebox and selects Monta - Good Morning Stranger*

If you have to wear one, wear the 2nd one, in the mean time, I'm backing away, moving slowly over to the other side of the bar. Maybe simonster has room at his table. :P

To be honest, if I'd known it was going to be this type of tavern, I'd've stayed at home.

According to the Fantasy Tavern Guide 2009, this is supposed to be "a good place to sit silently in the shadows, with a hood half covering your face, cultivating an air of dark mystery."

I guess it's changed management since then.

Oh, that's only on Saturdays. It's quite a multifaceted tavern.

Sorry, the light cast into your hood from your phone killed the 'dark and mysterious hooded figure' a bit. ;) Now that I know, I will find another place over that way. Especially if Chill starts taking off all his shirts :P

Pirates, as in one of the most awesome groups of people in history.

So, what are your views on hobbits?

If you write a pirate story, you have to include a thinking ship to Hobb it.
