Quinn slurs, "Can we at least wait until the gift is given before entering the basement?  Abdullah why don't present the gift?" as he stands from the seat at the table and wobbles somewhat.

Abdullah

As if suddenly awaken from a dream, Abdullah snaps to attention, and asks, “excuse me, what were we talking about?!? A present? For me?!? You shouldn’t have. It’s not even my birthday.”

Jeremiah makes no effort to hide his exasperation and says, "He said that given you $hithead move yesterday, you should be the one to present the keg to Molmat the bartender.  The point is to charm him so that we can gain access to the sewer.  Try a sincere apology and then give him the keg as an act of contrition." by the end Jeremiah's voice has taken on the tone a a parent explaining to a child.

Abdullah

“I don’t see how what I did was wrong. I merely did not have the funds at that particular moment in time. As you saw, I made good my debt the very next day.

If he wishes to upgrade his clientele, he will come across this quite often; as people of my stature do not always carry funds with them, especially in a neighborhood such as this.

Furthermore, he already said he would grant us access to the sewer. If he goes back on his word, there will be consequences.

But, if will appease you all, I’ll gladly present this keg to him, just so he is reminded of our good intentions.”

With that, Abdullah picks up the keg, throws it onto his shoulder with no effort, and marches off.


But, if

As Abdullah picks up the keg, you notice motion at the door.  A Skandik in an iron helmet with large round shield and spear enters the bar.  Behind him is an unarmored man with a sling staff and a large satchel.  They enter the man with the satchel evaluates the table choice while the Skandik eyes you.

Skandik is a viking for lack of a better term. as one source puts it:

Vikings. These are straight-up Vikings. They even worship the Viking Gods. The book really hammers in that they like the water: They're ritually birthed in water, only build their cities on the coastlines, the men can't reach climax unless the ocean is visible, Some of them have webbed toes, etc. (Only one of those was made up!). They also only let their warriors grow beards for some reason.

I will try to find a picture

** agreed but I envision most Skandiks in less/lessor armor***

The current subject has on rough pants and a tunic with fur trim, the big shield a spear and a hand ax on his belt plus the iron helm with eye rings and a nose guard.  https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-scandinavia-viking-age-helmet-from-chieftains-grave-iron-gjermundbu-122410449.html

The man (a Karakhan, a riding culture from lands east of here) with the satchel points out a table to the Skandik and sits, continuing to watch the portage and presentation of the kegs (if this occurs in the main room).

** For reference - he is a human, male, 5' 8", 175 lbs, longish red-brown hair, green eyes, narrow beard, ruddy skin

The troll is over near the fireplace and the Human bouncer near the gap between the bar and the kitchen.  Grobbitt is a few steps from the gap and Bug is a few behind him.  the new comers have moved to the table by the kitchen window.

I will re-post the maps here to prevent needing to go back to the other thread.

Abdullah

Abdullah saunters up to the bar, and address’ the owner.

“My dear, Molmat... As a measure of good intentions, and to show you, we bear no ill will, we wish to present you this keg of Dwarven mead, at no charge.”

The Molmat looks up very surprised and says, "You are giving me this keg at no cost?  I am surprised that you have returned; and more so, that you have brought an apology.  I accept your gift and wish you success in locating the girl.  If you can return her to me intact-I will triple my initial offered reward.  Please  feel free to enter my basement, and find the girl.  Her speedy return is what is most important to me, and the reputation of my establishment."

The Karakhan nods to the Skandik.
