Ye Moderately Olde Ranger Guildhall: General Chat

The odor wafting through the kitchen is both wonderful and horrible at the same time.  It smells very hot and very sweet, thrilling and deadly, and it sends a shiver up your spine.  There is a faint vapour collecting in the corners that shimmers, seductive and alarming.  The vapour seems to be emanating from the very large cauldron in the back of the kitchen.  A long table has been set up with one end next to the cauldron.  You can see Cheetah, @Elastigirl, and @Mr_Willes working at the table in a line.  There are a large number of empty glass quart bottles on the table.  Cheetah is carefully filling them, one at a time, with a ladle from the cauldron.  He passes the bottles to EG, who taps a cork in with a mallet.  She passes them to Willes, who sticks on a brown label covered in fancy writing.  The label exclaims, "DR. CHEETAH'S OLD TYME DRAGON OIL REMEDY"  It also makes many smaller declarations, such as "Good for all that ails you!"  "A Dram a Day will Do It!"  "Protects Against Viral Pandemics!"  "Puts Hair on Your Chest, Or Takes it Off AS NEEDED!"

 

In small print in the bottom corner the label whispers quietly, almost as an after-thought, "Only 10 Gold!  A real bargain!"

 

The liquid in the bottle reminds you of a sunset after an extremely violent storm has suddenly passed, with hints of rainbows leaping among clouds that are swollen and bruised.  The color is definitely gold, but as soon as you decide that, it's blue, for just a moment, then it's gold again.  It's like staring into the sun, and there are flecks of scintillating colors that shift and dance hypnotically, whispering a beautiful warning.   

 

You may or may not notice that there are already a dozen crates of full bottles stacked against the wall.

 

Cheetah smiles broadly and winks at you.

Just to see what happens, the chaplain sets a bottle aside and throws one of Cheetah's hats on it.

Within moments, the hat looks younger, stronger, more attractive, and entirely impervious to disease.  That's the impression that you get.

Waiiiiiiiiitttt. This seems too good to be true. Quick fixes are often deceptive, and not within the spirit of the Rebellion. There's gotta be a catch. 

*The Chaplain fixes Cheetah with a stare.*

But then, a few moments later  , as the Rangers look on,  out of the top of the hat starts swirling puffs of smoke
