Dark Eyes, Cold Hearts - The Blunted Blade
     Late morning begins to settle in as you make you way through the city. Lamp lighters are finishing up their rounds dousing the oil lamps spaced along the main boulevards. Traffic is beginning to get heavy as the shopcarts and side stalls all begin to unpack their wares for the day of business. Unlike many of the towns in Vilmir, Old Hrolmar is experiencing a rennisance of sorts. Instead of the drab and grey cities of many of the other city states, Old Hrolmar is full of colors and gadgets from every corner of the Young Kingdoms.

    After wandering through the well organized, busy, and extremely crowded, streets of Old Hrolmar you find your way to the Blunted Blade Inn. The inn is a cozy affair located along  one  of the main throughways heading out of town to the north. Music and laughter drift from the door each time it is opened, greeting each and every traveler with the promise of a good time. Bawdy songs from the Isle of Purple Towns color the mood for the evening as you approach the intended destination.

     The door opens easily hinting of the popularity of the establishment. Inside the place is crowded with people: Sweaty cattle drivers in dusty yellowed robes just in from the wilderness, local craftsmen still in the leather aprons of their trade, a small selection of the obvious night worker some of whom are finishing up with their last client of the evening. Two musicians, playing stringed instruments, provide a pretty young girl with a tune to dance to. Several appreciative patrons toss coins at her naked feet.

     Your obvious distinctive look, one that differences from the average serf present, garners a look from the bulky bartender. He reaches down grabs a few of the carved wooden mugs  and begins to clean them with a not so clean looking towel that was just recently slung over his shoulder. He nods a quick, but easy to decipher, gesture in your direction indicating for you to head towards the bar.

Bartender get the scrumptious treat that just walked in and sat down a drink too...and who you calling gressive bartering type looks over at Éclair and gives a devilish smile towards her...throws down a small handful of bronze..some still covered in Barbarian blood.  Keeps rubbing a stone on his axe to make it gleam because of its insane sharpness..

"Thanks." Hraal sips his ale and absorbs the atmosphere of the modest tavern.

Taking a quick glance up as the door slams quickly, responding to a common cry of "Wine, my good man", he motions Corvus over as he turns behind him to fetch a bottle. Turning back with hand at the ready to pop the cork, waiting for the coin to appear, he takes a deep breath "Ya seem a bit fluster son, wats on yer heels?" Cracking the seal he lets the bottle breathe for a bit "One second, while this breathes"

He looks up as more and more unusual clientele start to walk in. A few more mugs begin to appear on the bar top. As Viktor saunters up to the bar and digs deep into his coin pouch and tosses a handful of coins on the table top. He is met with only a few solid thunks of a bronze. Instead the light tinkling of groats fill the air.

After sweeping in the "vast treasure" laid on the bar in front of him the bartender smiles a bit. "I'm takin it that yer all here for tha meetin" He motions to a few tables over towards where Eclair has already claimed. "I was told to get ya all over there outa the way". The barkeep turns back towards Corvus "You part of this lot too? Or is Balo yankin on yer stings?" as a "knowing" smirk dancing across his face.

"Ya all just best be heading over. I'll be there with somethin ta wet yer wistles. How many of you am I expecting today gents?" He turns and begins to fill a few of the wooden mugs with something frothy and rank from a large barrel off to the side.

Khazim comes through the door right as the bartender finishes talking. He notices the two men in strange garb and mismatched in height. He tries to take everything in but it is so loud, nothing like the small villages he knows and the relative quiet of the wastes. He takes up a position just inside the doors, leaving against the wall and watches to see what else is going on and whether his mysterious patron happens to be present.

Turning back as he notices a new body near the door "Jus one moment, I'll getcha if'n you want ta just take a seat near the bar"
