As you step towards the bar to get a well deserved drink |_P you are stopped by a cool voice that comes from the cloaked figure sitting at the nearest table. You shoot him a glance and see a man who is well built and fitted with leather armor and a deep green cloak. Over his should you see a beautiful bow and quiver full of arrows. You cannot see his face fully but you can see the man has a peppered grey beard. He motions for you to come over to join him... He seems interesting enough to talk to so you heed his call.

The man greats you, He calls himself Heron-Grey. He explains that he is a Ranger of this region. Alongside of being a master tracker and huntsman he tells you he also as a fondness for gambling. He reaches in his cloak and produces a handful of dice and places them on the table. He grins and asks if you care to make a wager when playing his favorite dice game... Dungeon Dice.

*so in game...* this is one of the mini-games that I incorporated into the town. completely optional of course but it has become a favorite pastime for one of my particular Heros. It is actually a popular dice game called "cee-lo dice" . the rules are simple. you place a bet (in game you bet any amount of gold you wish to wager) the house then matches your bet and the winning pool is formed. You then roll the dice... then the House rolls his three dice... the results are gathered and the winner is declared... and whoever wins gets the gold.

heres a link to the rules via wikapedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cee-lo

This game has resulted in some hilarious outcomes for my Heros. I allow them to bet how ever much gold they want... hopefully doubling their purse is always a good incentive to play. Some of my Heros steer clear of Heron-Grey and his game but one of my Heros ... the Halfling... is a straight up fiend for this game... After every quest and the eventual return to Redbrooke... he heads straight for this table. And I have taken more gold from him than he can count... it was so sad for awhile as he lost every bit of gold (even some of his weapons :bites-lip:) to this game that I actually had Heron-Grey give him a side quest, where he could earn some of that gold back... the good old fashioned way.. by clearing the Valley board of orcs and goblins... He paid a reward for every enemy killed... Needless to say I think the Halfling ended up gambling all of this money away too.

That was a tough loss, but you hold your head high and thank the Ranger for teaching you his game. You deny his request for another go, and turn your attention to getting that drink. You take a seat at the bar next to a stout dwarf who is so drunk at this point that he is having a hard time staying atop of his bar stool. The fat woman behind the bar introduces herself to and welcomes you to the Sloppy Ogre. Her name is Bertha and from the looks of it, this must be Pipa's mother. She offers you a drink... this one's on the house. |_P :wizard: ;)

Bertha puts a fresh, cold mug of ale before you and you tip your glass in respect and drink the frothy brew.
Drinking is another mini-game... From now on my Heros do not automatically Heal and recover used spells after each completed quest... they must spend some of their turns and actions in the town of Redbrooke to re-fill and re-plenish Body and Mind. This gives the Heroes just another thing to do when in town... its a lot of fun to see how they go about it too... there are a number of different ways to go about this and drinking is one of them... albeit a riskier option. |_P |_P

You finish your ale and thank Bertha again. You get up to leave the tavern behind and set out to see the rest of the town now that you have a bit of beer in your belly.

yeah I could get around to doing that... It might take some time because I do not have scanner, but I could go to a public place like kinko's one of these days to do it... especially if more interest is given.

I would definitely like the rooftops to use on my town board. :D
