Three strangers enter the new bar, all with hoods cast over their faces. They choose a table in a dark corner (hey, there's already spiderwebs here! who's the housekeeper?).<BR>The tallest one throws back his hood. He has pointed ears and a grave face... and very odd eyebrows. A human-elf throwback, perhaps.<BR>The man (if indeed he IS a man) glances around the 'nameless' tavern and nods to his companions. They remove their hoods also. One is obviosuly their leader; a stout, sturdy man with golden hair and hazel eyes. The remaining man had icy blue eyes and a apprehensive demeanor, and glances down at something in his lap periodically.<BR>"Bones! You didn't bring it down here, did you?"<BR>The blue eyed man retorts: "Confound it, Jim, I wasn't about to let you and Spock die on an unchartered planet... certainly not in some alien bar. I have to make sure the drinks aren't poisonous to human anatomy."<BR>He glances at the pointed eared elfman. "Though I'm sure Vulcans have no problems with alcohol at all... what with that crazy metabolism..."<BR>Spock raises an eyebrow. "Really, Dr. McCoy, you have made me aware several times that my internal arrangement is quite different than yours... and much more suitable."<BR>McCoy snorts and turns to Kirk. "So... Prime Directive in force here, too?"<BR>Kirk grins. "That's right... no mention of the United Federation of Planets, no referance to our ship or the fact that there are other civilizations, etc. Though that mdecial tricorder you brought will probably lead to this world's downfall."<BR>Bones grunted. "Shut up. Sir."<BR>James T. Kirk waved at a serving girl and she came over to take their orders.

Mithrandia entered the establishment drawn in by the lure of free ale. Mithrandia knew where there was free-flowing libations there were an excess of men. She had served at inns before, and knew how to handle herself and men. She was new to this area, and needed a job so that she could afford a nice cottage under the shade of a vallenwood tree.........<BR><BR>She walked into the bar, approached the man who appeared to be in charge of the place, Shadowjack, she thought she had heard him called.......<BR><BR>She hoped that he needed another barmaid, she really liked the feel of this place, and she could tell the clientel certainly were interesting.......she had already seen the 3 cloaked strangers in the corner. One had pointed ears, but he looked nothing like any elf she had seen before, and she had seen her share of elves in her traveling......

Uinen, glad to see the inn's light, stumbles in from the dry outside.<BR><BR>"I'm lost," she says to the nearest serving wench, "Do you know the way to the nearest beach?" When the girl shakes her head, Uinen decides to settle down and observe the interesting clientele for a bit. "Can you bring me some saltwater and a few shrimp?"

The Nameless Bartender, jobless since the closing of his Nameless Inn, seeks out Shadowjack for the position of bartender. "I can help you keep order when the undesireables drop by sir. I can do more than pour beer...", as he flexes his bicep, "if you get my drift"?!

<i>mandos no sooner looks at an apron than the place fills up like it had been open all night and a hundred years afore to boot.<BR>Luckily, several of those ensconced had pled dire and convincing cases for employment (</i>a couple with very impressive resumes<i>).<BR>In a whurl mandos hands Shadowjack the applications and such, pointing out the fact that one didn't have a name on it, but the guy looked like he could be handy to have around. Also the waif Mithrandia, looked as if she would do well. Not waiting (or stopping really mandos grabs two clean aprons from the rack on the wall in his free hand, tosses them at, um, 'him' and Mithrandia, in an urgent manner and points to the filling tables and chairs.</i><BR><BR>Off to it slowcoaches! Let no one here go thirsty or hungry, when all are full to there limit and you've cleaned up after is when you'll find rest! Off now! See what they wish!

They must have all had Rings! mandos pockets their Pez.<BR><BR>Checking to see that the slowcoaches had found their way to something useful to do, mandos sits, and the third leg of the three legged stool he sat on broke, sending him sprawling backwards to the floor.</i>

I, Mithrandia, looked astounded........no interview, no haggling over the span of my waist, no checking to see if I had nice looking legs, no checking the validity of the size of my......hum,um....well you know. This was the easiest job I had ever gotten, not that I had ever had trouble getting a job before, I have all the right qualifications in all the right places........<BR><BR>I tied on my apron, and grabbed a wooden tray and headed out into the masses, and it was not a second later I had orders being barked at me........<BR>"Wench, get me a tankard of your master's free brew!"<BR>"Barmaid, bring me a mug of your oldest and most expensive ale!"<BR>"Honey, bring me a plate of spiced potatoes!"<BR><BR>"So many men, so many orders, so little time....." I said with a flirtacious grin on my face and laugh bubbling out of my throat.<BR><BR>I could tell that this place was one that I was going to enjoy working at. About the time I had that thought, a burly, hairy man grabbed me by my waist and pulled me onto his lap. <BR>"You sure are the prettiest little thing in this dump of a bar." he gargled through rotten teeth.<BR>"Thanks, mate, now let me up so that I can tend to the other folks here waiting to be graced by some ale and food." I said as I attempted to get up. But, the horrid smelling, oafish, brute pulled me only tighter to him.<BR>"Now, I ain't gonna share you this evenin'. You's mine, and ain't no man here man enough to try to take you from me." The greasy headed scoundrel again gurgled through rotten teeth.<BR>"Maybe not," I said, "but I am going to give you one more chance to let me up or I'll show you how much of a man this woman can be in a fight." I firmly told the rancid stranger.<BR>"You can't do nothing to me.......You's just a little snip of a woman and now you's mine." He blabbered on.<BR>"I warned you." I said as a twisted around in his tight grip just enough to turn around and look into his face, eye to eye, so that I was now facing him. I planted my knee firmly into the area that is so sensitive to mortal men, and he loosened his grip long enough for me to escape, I back up less than an arm's distance from him, and picked up my foot, kicked at his face, and planted my heel firmly into his nose. The blood gushed out, and he fainted dead away. I turned around, picked my tray up off the floor, and started to make my rounds, when I saw the man who had thrown the apron at me, the man apparently in charge, walking over to the scene of the scafofle, with quite a stern look on his face. What was going to happen next was a mystery, hopefully I wouldn't be fired................<BR>

While no one is looking Thalion sneaks in through a back door. He sits down at a table and gets some beer. After maybe 10 beers Thalion forgets about the black trenched coat men and pulls his camera again, after 6 shots the trench coats haul him out again and this time they break his camera and kick Thalion in the face.

Mithrandia sashays over to the table where the 3 hooded strangers are sitting. <BR><BR>"Fancy some free beer, tonight, fellows?" <BR><BR>"I don't supposed you have synthehol here, now do you?" The hooded figure with an older face and more straight-laced demeanor barked.<BR><BR>"Nah, sorry mate, never heard of that in these parts." I said.<BR><BR>"It figures, we land in the only place that still serves real alcohol, and if I drink it, I won't be able to stop. That's why scientists invented synthehol, so that we could enjoy a drink with out the consequences." the man who had spoken previously had said.<BR><BR>"Bones, lighten up. Enjoy your self. We have free beer, free nachos, and beautiful women to look at. What else could you ask for?" The apparent leader of the group asked the one who spoke before. The one he called Bones."<BR><BR>"I could ask for a clean table." Bones replied.<BR><BR>"That would be illogical, considering the dirt roads and the dirt that is put into the air by the feet of passing and entering travelers. Also the methods for cleaning in this era is not the most proficient." The pointed eared guy said in a calm and even tone.<BR><BR>"Well, I haven't worked here long, but I know that the owner and the barkeep clean this area very regularly. I am sorry if it does not suit your liking." I promptly told the strangers.<BR><BR>"No, no. It is just what we were looking for. My friends here are just grumpy over worked men. We are here on a holiday. They will behave. Please just bring us a plate of your best nachos, and 3 tankards of beer."<BR><BR>"Sure mate, but I think your friends are just a little different." I told them as I walked away.
