Tavern Tables: Evening’s Entertainment

Gingerly making your way through the crowd, you work your way to a better vantage point from which to watch the performance area. On a roughhewn stage, the most amazing performance is underway. The audience laughs, gasps, and cheers at the talent displayed before them, indicating that the battered straw basket at the edge of the stage will soon be filled with gladly-donated coins.

Of course, there's a 1-in-6 chance the events manager doublebooked the acts. :)

Apart from (obviously) taking these for their intended use, I think "half-ogre insult comic" just became my next character concept. Now to get a book of Don Rickles jokes for research...

Uh, this is the fifth time in a row they've had dwarven wrestlers for the evening entertainment.

What kind of bar is this guys?
