Ye Olde Challengers' Tavern: General Chatter & Revelry abounds!


Recommended Posts

Welcome one and all!  Come rest ye weary guild champions, put your feet up and order a beverage.  Security at the door will check your cloak, weapons, and armaments (but I wouldn't trust them with your valuables wink wink).  The fires in the hearth are roaring and the barkeep is freshly returned from both a specialty cocktail course and a smoothie retreat, so they can handle just about anything your heart could desire!

 

Since we're entering the late summer months (depending on your hemisphere and/or multiverse), I have it on good authority that the Guildhall staff have set us up with a seasonal bounty out back... 

enjoy the NF Tiki Bar™ and beach, we have kayaking and other water sports down by the river for those of an adventuring persuasion, and I hear the Powers That Be™ even managed to put together a a rock climbing course to dabble on!

 

Going into this August, remember our message in memory of friends current, newfound, and those whose memories we'll keep close to heart always:

I'm a sentimental old curmudgeon; can't blame me for sticking to what works ;) 

 

 

That said - Welcome, one and all!  Our next challenge is about to begin!

 

Please pull up a chair and take a look at our menu:

Me too!   I've been trying to get out kayaking all summer and it is yet to turn out.  

 

If it's sun we'll be enjoying I'll take a Daquiri please!

(Currently drinking this one as I type this. Not bad, but not my favorite among the Juicy IPA category.)

 

This thread reminds me that I need to take my kayak out as well. I've just about gotten to where I can get the thing moving in a kind of consistent straight line...sort of.
