Ruthless Fates -- Aftermath
Volnes, day 29 of the month Jastatos in the year 5101

[Circle of Souls]
Small semi-circular flaps cut out of the wall of a nearby tent lend some circulation to the interior of the structure. Black and silver streamers tied to the suspension cables flutter gently in the breeze blowing across the field, waving like snakes attempting to strike at any within reach. Lanterns hung from wires strung across the pathway flicker fitfully, struggling to light the area. You also see a bar door, a beautifully painted tent, a white tent, an old shack and a large blackened cauldron.
Obvious paths: north, south.

[Rudeal's Bar, Hallway]
Evidently whoever built this tavern was either too drunk to finish or just plain forgot about this portion of the inn altogether. The hallway comes to an abrupt dead-end and the rickety door seems to be nothing more than an afterthought. Somebody has hacked out a crude window which is providing a lovely view of the woodpile, but its lack of any glass is going to make standing here a chilly proposition at best. You also see a bar door.
Also in the room: Glub
Obvious exits: south, out.

You squint.

Glub asks, "WHere is the ale?"

As Glub taps his mask, its features shift and twist in a disquieting display before settling into a snorting orange tabby mask.

Glub snorts.

search
You don't find anything of interest here.

Glub asks, "A bar with no ale?"

Glub snorts.

You say, "I don't know."

You say, "Walk about."

Glub just went south.

You ask, "allright, rustling shadow, where are ye?"

[Rudeal's Bar, Hallway]
A roach that is slowly crawling up one wall has captured the attention of a mangy stray cat precariously balanced on one of the empty wall sconces. The feline is batting softly at the insect, evidently debating whether the bug is a plaything or dinner.
Obvious exits: north, south, west.

Something brushes you as it passes behind, but nothing is there.

You flail your arms about.

[Rudeal's Bar, Bar Room]
Several small shadowy shapes are rapidly skittering across a rotting wooden beam overhead, and oddly, they are roughly about the size of the chunky meat floating in the stew served here. Numerous gashes and bloodstains have marred the walls, most likely the result of years of brawls and perhaps one reason Rudeal hasn't bothered to hang any pictures.
Obvious exits: north, south, east, west, northeast, southeast, southwest.

You ask, "Where ye be, rustling shadow?"

You ask, "Shadow?"

You notice something move out the corner of your eye, then run through the door.
