Enter the Tavern, take a seat, order a drink, and get ready for chatter!

On the house

Post by MountainBard » Fri May 10, 2019 5:21 pm

Hey everyone, stop in for a pint on me. I'm really curious to hear from everyone who's still using this board. Even though it's far less active than in the past, I know there have to be peeps out there who are playing. If you are, and you've found this board, I'd love to hear from you. The tavern's business has fallen off, but we can change that. ;)

Thanks barkeep. It's mighty welcome. I've been farming the Inferno, and it gets warm in there. Some excellent swag drops though.

Sing us a song, icetear — my bards could use a new song! :)

If you're farming Inferno, I recommend a strong beer called Maudite — "The Damned"! A damned fine brew!

*clears his throat*

errm... I'm no bard, really.
But this old air just came to my mind.

deep down below
fiery darkness all around
that's where I go
my soul forever bound

finally we meet
now of the same kind
we share the need
a dweller in my mind

beware the trees
where shadows lure
soon on your knees
you won't endure

fear the dark master
don't let him through
his power growing faster
even in you

don't hold your ground
hide in the grass
make no sound
and he might pass

how long must we withstand
oh brother tell me when
his reign will be at an end
and we're free again

*applauds loudly* Barkeep, get this man another drink. You sound like a bard to me, good sir. That was tremendously fine. :D

Oh and Visstar, thank you for the beer recommendation. Maudite is indeed the perfect brew for the ol' inferno. Kinda reminds me of Mudders' Milk. *raises eyebrows* Now if I can just find how to move on from that first Inferno labyrinth other than getting booted out to Savage Crossing.

Hear hear! My bard played that song during an encounter and suddenly we were all hidden and attacking from the shadows. :)

Very good song from someone who's supposedly not a bard! The best I could come up with was:

Thunder making
Ground is shaking
Giants roaring,
Tree trunks soaring

Bowstring twanging
Lightning striking
A rogue in the shadows
Can end the fighting

Never tried Mudders Milk. I'll try to find some.

You'll need to kick every wall looking for a hidden door, and check the map each time you move to see if perhaps you missed a spot.

There is one place along the southern corridor with a hidden door that you can only access from the east. If you approach from the west, you teleport past the square with the door to the next square. Unless you're checking the map to see where you are, you wouldn't even notice.

Thank you Visstar. I had been kicking walls, but I kept getting interrupted before I got all the way around. *looks at the cats* So I will make sure I go through and get every one. (The cats, by the way, are a pair of tortoise shell rescue kitties, sisters who we named Holly and Ivy since we got them for Christmas. We've had a lot of cats but never torties before. These two are amazing, but they're so often doing something humorous or adorable (or in the case of Holly, getting into trouble) that they are a constant distraction.)
