The party walks through town heading towards the bucking mule. After some walking the party comes upon the row of tavern’s & inn’s. It seems quite lively



Khan lags behind a few steps, avoiding to have to order the drinks (and pay for them). Looking around as if scouting the street he notices the mage they had encountered before turning the corner.

Thunk checks out the tavern. It’s full of a variety of people. Thunk heads over to the bar and orders a keg for the group. After hauling it to the table he realizes Khan is missing. Thunk sticks his head out the door and sees Khan talking to a mage.
“Hey Khan! Get yer self in here and bring yer friend. I’ve got a keg waiting for you and I can smell Grim cooking up a meal for us. Mmmm sure smells like some good eating heading our way tonight”

Dang. I seemed to have lost my coin pouch. Thunk !search around the bar for his lost pouch.

You search the surrounding area and you find ticket to battle at the arena

i was looking for one of those.

Khan listens to Thunk and invites the mage in. " You look like you need a drink. Come on."

“I see everyone has a drink. Grim must be cooking up a storm in there’, Thunk points his chin at the kitchen. “Sure is smelling good”. Thunk sees Khan and the mage enter and pours them both a pint.
Thunk looks at the newest members of the group, “If your gonna drink my ale you have to give us a good story. Tell us about yerselves. You sure seem able to handle yerselves in a fight... but you seem to get a bit soggy doin’ it”. Thunk laughs and gulps down his ale and freshens it up with a new pour.

Thunk pulls out his newly found ticket and whispers to Quaid, ‘Hey Cap’n. I can’t seem to read some bone dust in my eyes..uh, yeah...that’s it...bone dust is makin’ it hard to read the words. Can you tell me what it says?”

Mage: Greetings fine elf. I see you are more civilized then your roguish companions.
Where are my manners. May I offer you drink ?

a wild Grammar-pony appears, correcting then to than, before galloping off

EXCUSE ME "Grim is pushes forward true Quaid,Warcet and Thunk in front of him and enters the bucking mule. well inn there he going to the the kitchen.

Good day @rolld20 see what a have!. oping up the chest fill of frog legs. do you have a fryer a can borrow and maby some potatoes. fryed frog legs and French fries.

"one thing is for sure grim has not the best memory out there"

Shake shake shake, you roll the 20-sided die.

You rolled a 19.

OOC: best post ever !

The staff of the bar let’s the dwarf through and assists with the prepping of the dish.

Whilst the rest of the party is busy drinking and having fun whilst watching Grim cook up a storm.
Frienmir ask the barmaid “ what rumours have you heard? @rolld20

Shake shake shake, you roll the 20-sided die.

You rolled a 19.

Shake shake shake, you roll the 20-sided die.

You rolled a 4.

She leans towards you across the bar and says “I heard they are bringing back frog jousting on Wednesday’s at the battle arena”

omg, i need tickets.
paces back and forth formulating a plan
(it appears to be more of a trot)

Quaid sniffs the air. "Yep, smells like frog legs in here. We are definitely in the right place. Spread out, see if you can find out from a waitress or barkeep where they get them from. We'll track them back to their source." Quaid will chat up a server and ask about frog legs. Personality is +0! @rolld20

“Wait...what? I knew that smelled familiar but I... Hey Quaid! Come here. I’ve got something we need to discuss, er... private like”. Thunk tells Quaid that since Grim is in the kitchen he may actually be cooking up the forbidden legs. “Grim’s memory ain’t too good ya know. He just sees ingredients to cook with. He may not remember where they came from. Let’s go check out what he’s doin’ in there.”

"GRRRIIMMMM!" Quaid runs into the kitchen.

OOC: Although I just checked the last post. It said it was a crate of "Frog Legs." So... @simplegame, are those frog legs or frogMAN legs?

OOC: frogMan legs so someone is importing them.

They do not seem to be illegal in this town

The waitress says,

We get a shipment once a week, from the merchant guild. Don’t you get your supplies from them ? They supply the whole town.

Shake shake shake, you roll the 20-sided die.

You rolled a 17.

I will also excuse myself into the back alley after sipping my ale to go relieve myself so I can !search
You know, for clues...

You search the surrounding area and you find jar of spice

Quaid sniffs the spice. "I'll bet Grim could use these... hey! Where is Grim?"

GIVE ME GIVE ME....a need it...mix it in the batter, spice frog leggs jummy,,

Zur grabs a pint from Thunks keg and takes a seat at the bar.


You search the surrounding area and you find absolutely NOTHING

Bucking Mule? I thought this was the Leering Jester
I'm looking for my old friend Lester!
After taking a nice quaff with Thunk
Warcet wanders back, seemingly looking for lunch.

From the street he finds that jester Leering
suddenly Warcet fears what he is feeling....
but wait, no, it was just some gas I'm sure
Let's see what's what at this other bar.
