Our protagonist looks up briefly. The stew bowl is mostly empty and the bread rapidly disappearing. She shakes her head and carries the end of the bowl and bread over to @WolfDreamer's familiar. He gives her a snuffle and accepts the gift. "Keep half a nose on that for me, ok?" she says, gesturing at the pack. The pack wriggles. The wolf raises an eyebrow as if to say he's seen stranger.

An average sized human wanders in from the cold, offering a wave and smile at the barkeep as she removes her gloves.

The door cracks slightly and a small shy creature slinks in, trying to be unnoticed.  Notices the strong coffee aroma and a little confused.  Is this a Tavern or a coffee shop?  Well in her home town they are pretty much intermingled, so it does feel like home.

 

Unsure why everyone is rugged up against the cold, feeling quite comfortable in her thin robe.

 

Taking a deep breath, better get this over with, head high heads to the barkeep.  I'll have a cider - and hold the coffee.

 

Looking around nerviously at the folks who all seem so confortable here, takes a stool at the end of the bar to watch the interactions of the locals.

The door to the tavern opens ever so slightly as a small but fiery woman quietly slips in and sits at a table in one of the corners . “Earl grey hot please bartender. “. She glances around the tavern and thinks quietly to herself that this place may be a good place to settle for awhile.

The door opens and a wood elf shambles in, soaking wet.  Noticing the puddle she's leaving, she stops to hang her cloak by the door before proceeding to the bar, ordering a large non-dairy chai tea with a couple shots of espresso in it, and then promptly falling asleep in a chair by the fire.

 

Hello fellow Nerds!  I had a mostly good but very stressful holiday, during which I did not sleep well at all, so got zero chance to recover during my break from work.  Now I'm back to it, just as tired and possibly more run down than I was before the holidays.  So, I am not going to be charging head first into the new year, but easing into things so I don't kill myself.  Here's to a great 2023, however you choose to tackle it!

WolfDreamer hears Nashoba whine softly and looks over to see that the wolf has been splashed just a little by the water from the entering wood elf. He chuckles.

 

"You needed a bath anyway," he says to the wolf. He smiles at the resting wood elf. "Sorry to hear about the stress @Elennare. What do you do for work?"

Nashoba raises his head and then sits up. WolfDreamer sits up straight, as well, to show his esteem. "Wow," he says. "An actual rocket scientist! That's amazing!"

Happy belated New Years resolutions, people!

 

I'm finally feeling like I can post somewhat regularly so I've updated the  Weight Loss PVP: 10 or 12 lbs in 10 or 12 Weeks! [Jan 1 - Mar 26, 2023) over in the Adventure Parties forum!

 

Kinda late to the punch, but better late than never, so just jump in wherever or however you want!
