Stein [LOCATION] The Harlot

Located not far from the Malician gates stands one of the most clean inns within the walls of Malice. Clean, not as in "not dirty" but more as in the sense of "least dirty". The inn was rumoured by many travelers to grant a weary adventurer a little rest in the ever dangerous city of Malice. The Harlot provides a warrior everything he needs after a harsh fight: beer, women, comfort and hard liquor.

After entering the inn one steps about three feet down into the seating area of The Harlot. Red pillows cover comfortable benches and matrasses and in the far right-hand corner a long row of small stairs lead to the upper region where an old, small man plays a terribly out-of-tune piano with such skill, one would hardly notice the honky-tonk sound it produces. Next to the piano player one finds the bar. A dark golden bar that stretches out for about ten meters, the shelves behind it stacked with uncountable liqour bottles.

Misleading by its length the bar is manned by one man only, Manuel. This tall, broad shouldered man handles his bottles and glasses with such incredible speed and finesse, a man might assume he has an endlessy supply of drinks pre-poured under the counter. In his white vest, with his slicked-back black hair and his thin upperlip moustache, he gives the impression of a torreador. Not to mention because of his face, covered in scars.

Above the bar hangs one sign in the entire inn, this one reads:
Quote:
do not speak to manuel
If one wonders how to order his drinks, the solution for this problem presents itself ever so quickly, for dozens of extravagantly clad women, wearing red-feathered dresses, swarm over the customers, offering them booze, hugs, kisses and for the right price, a pleasant night.

The grand total is lit by a grand chandelier that hangs heavy from the ceiling. This two-and-a-half diameter giant emmits so much light that the bottles on the bar are easy to read despite their exotic names. Under the huge, glass overhung chandelier stands a big hookah, where customers enjoy its numbing effects with substances bought from a few regulars that sit at the bar, tapping whenever they want a new drink.

timestamp: autumn era XI

johnny K felt finaly at rest in this luxurous shelter seemingly far away from the violence that raged all aroud the doors. he had heard of this place when he was on the road, sometimes from ordinary travelers but mostly from mercenaries. it was, to his opinion a fine place. everyone looked relaxed and was having the time of there life.

"there you go johnny" said a fine looking young lady as she put down the plate with the two beers. sitting down intimatly close beside him she whispered in his ear: "i've told manuel to put you and your friend down for the championship, dont you ruin that pretty face of yours now". she looked teasingly into johnny's eyes. "i wont ma'm" johnny said polightly and leaned over to pick up his beer.

he looked around and waited for his friend to come join him, the fight at the arena had been awful. johnny never liked the use of weapons, and he hated the thought of fighting animals. he shuddered with an unpleasant feeling and patted ROBO on the head. his little pal had been jumpy ever since they arived in this thug-filled hellhole but now he watched a few merchants take hits of the hookah, he lookes peacefull indeed. but what kept grosnok.

"Johnny!" Grosnock called out to his new friend as he entered the Harlot.

"Get me a beer will ya? i need one bad"

He sat down vioently next to the strange human. and laid his head on the table, not looking up tuntil his beer was placed in front of him which he proceeded to drink down in one smooth motion beofer slamming it down and demanding another.

"So, whats up?"

OOC: this is happening after the arena fight allright?

the serving girl was used to men treating her rough and got the drink without a big hasle and winked at the two men as she walked away.

"whats up?" johnny repeated the question, "i signed us up for the malician army leadership tournement!" johnny said with a big smile. taking it for granted the orc wanted to join in the first place.

and before the baffled orc could reply he blurted "aint it great buddy? we might even get to fight each other! wouldnt that be something"

johnny did not really want to win the competition, the prize would become a burden in no time, and the chances of winning where so slim it was almost a mathematical imposibility. then he realized he had to get some training in befor it started. "you know we should start training our punching and stuff, well.. tommorow, lets say tonight we have ourself a real night"

after he said this he picked up his beer and took two enormous gulps, almost finishing a full beer, looking grosnock straight in the eye to demonstrate what he meant.

So the tournament sign ups had begun and Grosnock had appartently stumbled in to just the place to do it only to find his new friend had done it for him already. He was proving to be more useful than Grosnock could ever of imagined. It was a shame he had to get such a beating in the arena so soon before the tournament was scheduled but he was an Orc and therefore didnt mind to much. Most of the serious wounds had totally healed anyway and formed into impressive mounds of hardened scared flesh. Bless Jorel for the Orcs metabolism.

"Weel dats good news Johnny, let me get ya a drink an heres the 100 crowns for the entrance fee. Two beers, now!" He said as he raised his head from the counter once more with a seemingly more rested mind. Alcohol was a vital medicine for a lot of an Orcs problems.

"An' get me a plate of food, i dont care what"

Grosnock had fought hard and suffered a lot but he felt like more of a warrior than ever before. He had never been so close to death in a fight and he emerged victorious. Maybe Johnny was on to something, celebration was in order. He felt he had deserved it and he could sure do with some relaxation time. He hadn't had any real nights out since him and Kouran had celebrated a succesful job almost a cycle ago before he had fled to Zinn'Sunn.

"You know Johnnny i think you might be on to sumthing, we should get some practice in. But furst we drink. Who knows we might get sum punching dun tonight eh?" He said with an eager grin and a sly wink. Grosnock was going to have his fun one way or another.

ooc no; you can register yourself. It costs 100 crowns to enter, though. Make sure you deduct that twice for entering Grosnock, Johny.

one of the girls took grosnoks order and left two fresh beers on theyre table and said with the sweetest voice:

"your dinner will be here soon, handsome orc"

as she walked away, johnny gave grosnock a sly look, one eyebrow raised a little. he didnt know if this orc was in touch with his reproductional side but everyone liked that kind of comment from a pretty gall.

"that was quite the fight there" johnny said, and he meant it. he was quite impressed by the orcs preformance, he used tactics so contrary to johnny's fightingstyle johnny ought them crude and innefective but they had served the orc well. "youre a real firecracker in the ring" he added.

"but, how well do you manage without that axe of yours". johnny posed this last question not really like an inquiery but more like a dare, he had gotten the orcs hint and thought it might be fun to break the town up tonight.

"I cud take any Man, Orc or dark skinned fool in dis place so i cud. Ha ha ha!" Grosnock shouted out before downing his fresh beer and slapping it repeatedley on the counter signifying to the waitress to refill it.

Grosnock gave the female a good look up and down as she went and fetched his drink and he tapped his friend with an overly hard elbow while pointing at her with his forehead.

"What cha think eh?" He said with an amount of cool an Orc could not possess under his breath before shouting out "She wants me! Ha ha ha!" as she brought him a new drink.

He was certaintly gettin rowdy and there were more than a few customers unhappy with the situation.

"well my amigo," johnny said "this place aint called the harlot for nothing." and he laughed heartily. the two men sat at there table in the red seating area for a while when a pretty young girl walked over to theyre table and set down a plate of food and a bowl of soup.

the plate consisted out of a big piece of bread covered in honey and spices. various vegetables surounded a big piece of red steaming meat and smelled like fine roasted beef. the bowl was filled with a creamy yellow soup that looked, to a hungry man, like a gift from heaven.

as the maid walked away johnny realised how hungry he was and shouted "i'll have one of those aswell, and get us two of your best whiskey, with your fine looking body, while youre at it."

before he realised what he was saying he had it out. his manners decreased by the minute when he was with the orc. he didn't care though, he had been drinking all day that day and didnt really care about anything anymore. he was finaly free of any social rules, not that anyone cares on malice.

"allright my mate, what did you have in mind tonight?" johnny inquired and looked at grosnock with dreary eyes and a grin on his face.

"Well we drink till we're drunk an den we'll go wit da flow" He slurred and spat out between mouthfuls of food and swigs of beer.

"An' maybe i'll get a piece of dat dere waitress to"

The two were boasting and giggling at the table for another ten minutes, Telling old anecdotes from their younger days and slapping each other on the back. They were getting on well and the night looked like it was going to be an intersting one. It was then that the waitress returned to the table and put down two more whiskeys and a second plate of food and two whiskeys, leaving the bottle on the table. However she did not escape the table so easily as when she turned to go Grosnocks hand managed to get a good squeeze off her behind making a large grin expand accross his face. She, however, might not be so happy about it.

"you might want to watch where you keep those hands of yours, fair stranger" snapped the maid. petting the girls of the harlot was as common as an orc with scars, but grosnocks hands were strong and cruel and had really hurt the pretty girl, "unless ofcourse if you have money to pay for them" she added in a more relaxed and sensual tone, winking at the big green man that sat at the table.

johnny was amused, very amused as he watched his social incapable friend wriggle himself into the strange situation of getting told of by a whore for merely touching her, and lay almost in stitches when the maid left there table.

"phew" he said when he got his breath back, he sat up straight and has tears in his eyes form laughing so intensly "she sure looks like the right girl for you" he got out befor errupting into anoher volley of laughs and giggles.

then he dug into the food like a rabid badger, and for those of you that have never seen a rabid badger it is not a prewtty sight. he was starved and tore the meat apart with his teeth. he almost ate as uncontrolled as grosnock, but the orc had his race as an advantage in this strange culinary contest.

when both men were saturated johnny picked up one shotglass and handed grosnock the other.

"to your fight, this afternoon"

he said holding his glass high.

"Aye, to me fight" Grosnock replied, rasied his glass up and clinking it against his friends before downing it in one smooth motion.

"I feel like another one!" he siad slyly to his friend who picked up the bottle of booze and reached over to fill up the Orcs glass before Grosncoks hand pushed it away again.

"No, i want anuver fight" he said in total seriousness for such a drunk brute.

He took the bottle from his friends grasp and filled his glass up again, slamming down another shot. He was excited and full of testosterone. He did not want to kill anyone but he did want a fight and would beat anyone he could half to death given the chance.

quite shocked by the orcs forwardness johnny sat and drank another shot of the burning liquid. he knew orcs liked fighting but this man was quite the barbarian.

"well, perhaps we should get more smashed and see what comes our way" johnny threw at his new friend.

he was still to sober to get rounded up in a fight, espescially if he was gonna be with grosnock he picked up a napkin and cleaned his face. his plate was on the ground and ROBO was scrounging the leftovers from it.

"hell, maybe youre right, maybe we should have another fight, you know you and me fighting side by side"

johnny felt the whiskey pumping through his vains by now and somehow saw reason in the orcs aggresion

"Yeah, Dats what im talkin about. Da two of us could take anyone in here" He roared out as he launched his arm around the shoulders of his drunken comrade.

He stood up and took another huge drink out of the whiskey bottle and used his arm to wipe the liquid from his face where he had spilt it, his think forearm hair doing a nice job of cleaning up the mess. He swayed gently from side to side as he scanned the bar around him. The sudden motion of standing up had confused his mind and body and he had to take a moment to collect himself. He passed the empty bottle to Johnny Kickass and told him to take a drink, clearly not realising how much he had drunk. He was well and truly intoxicated but not in a way where he lost control of his actions. He could probably fight even better with a mind like this. He had a certain focus on his fists and his body with the added bonus of immunity to pain.

"Barmaid!" He shouted "Another bottle of whiskey"

the scared maid shyly walked over to grosnocks table. the big orc was loud and reckless, the Harlot only had the occaisional ruffien come in sometimes. this was probably him. she put down the full bottle and picked up the empty one wich she held in two hands.

"the two gentlemen have quite the tab, managenment wonderes how you are gonna pay for youre night here?"

she asked, in a very insecure voice. she hated asking violently drunk men for money but she had orders from manuel.

johnny was loving the situation, his new fellow really pumping himself up and making quite the fool of himself, and he wanted to know how far grosnock would be pushed. so he decided to take sides with the maid in a teasing manner.

"well...?" he asked and looked inquisitly at the hulking body.
