The Bizarre Dragon Inn
The Bizarre Dragon Inn
From the outside it looks rustic, clean and cozy. Sandstone bricks and hardwooden beams make up most of the building’s outer structure.
It’s hard to see through the high windows, but the passionate voices from within can be felt outside.
As you enter the tavern through the well-crafted, metal door, you’re welcomed by a pleasant atmosphere and amazing, but unknown scents.
The bartender is working hard, but still manages to welcome you with a smile.
It’s as charming inside as it is on the outside. Stone pillars support the upper floor and the decorative lights attached to them. The walls are swarmed with flags of all sorts and sizes. Some are from nearby towns or provinces, others from the far corners of the world.
The tavern itself is packed. Locals seem to be the primary clientele here, which often leads to exciting evenings. Several long tables are occupied by, what looks like couples, lone travellers and anybody else who enjoys great company. The other, smaller tables are also occupied by people who are playing games and, judging by their laughter, are either telling jokes or great, perhaps embarrasing, tales. Even most of the stools at the bar are occupied, though nobody seems to mind more company.
You did hear rumors about this tavern, supposedly it’s famous for something, but you can’t remember what for. Though judging by the amount of cups, tankards and glasses on the tables, it’s probably the fine alcoholic drinks. You manage to find a seat and prepare for what will undoubtedly be a great evening.
Beringer, the Bartender and Owner
Red, shaggy hair tight in a ponytail reveals a furrowed, wild face. Glistening black eyes, set charmingly within their sockets, watch energetically over the patrons of his bar that he has served for many years.
An old tattoo of a small wolf is almost hidden just above the right side of his right eyebrow .
There’s something fascinating about him, perhaps it’s simply his sense of humor. But nonetheless, people tend to take pride in knowing him.
His short sleeved, hide jacket covers him to well above his knees and is half buttoned up at the right side. The sleeves of his jacket are a loose fit and reach down to well above his wrists, they’re decorated with several thread linings from top to bottom.
The jacket has a round neckline which reveals part of the stylish shirt worn below it and is worn with a long cloth belt, which is held together by a simple knot. The cloth belt is a functional addition, but does have some decorative value.
His pants are simple and quite wide and reach down to his soft leather boots. The boots are made from a pretty rare leather, but are otherwise not that special.
It’s hard to describe a complex person like Beringer, but if there’s anything you should know it’s that he’s hardworking and good-natured. Of course he’s also forthright, ambitious and compassionate, but those are often overshadowed by tendencies of being disorderly as well.
His hardworking nature though, this is what he’s most popular for. Oftentimes people will count on this and his sentimentality in times of need.
Nobody’s perfect of course and Beringer has a fair share of lesser days too. His argumentativeness does cause plenty of friction on often personal levels.
Fortunately his good nature is usually there to help mends things when needed.
The last few years his best customer has been the priestess Messina, who had just rolled into town one rainy November evening. He rents her a room upstairs for half price that she heals the local villagers in when she’s not draining his stock at the bar.
