Mythodea / First Night at the"Salty Stick" Tavern - Großer Eröffnungsabend der Taverne "Salty Stick"

25.04.2020

Germany: The East Blackwood Company wants to invite you to celebrate the opening of their new tavern near the Black Pier and the trade possibilities it brings. Come enjoy a night of drink, games, and merriment as we celebrate the First Night at the Salty Stick.

A long afternoon of drinking to toast the Grand Opening of the East Blackwood and Realms Embassy in the Western Seal, Ambassador Dagger, Sayeh, Djako, Marik and Varn sat down with Sir Valdemar and Fia of the Bracar Keltoi to finish off the remaining stock of wine... One thing led to another and soon the idea for a tavern came about. Fia named it, The Salty Stick!  


Last year, the East Blackwood Company requested the right to build a small harbor and tavern along the Blauerstorm River just south of Drachenbrück, Zweiwasser. Margrave Balor the Red granted the E.B.Co permission. As soon as a small rebellion was put down in the region, construction began.

Now, that tavern has been completed and the East Blackwood Company is inviting merchants, sell-swords, travelers, tradesmen and women from all around to come and enjoy a weekend of revelry.  Yet with every small success comes with the possibility of those who would use those small victories for their benefit. If those moments will be for the betterment of the Realm or not remains to be seen.


The Salty Stick Tavern

The Salty Stick Tavern is located near the Black Pier just south of the City of Drachenbrück.  Drachenbrück the capital of the Margravate of Zweiwasser within the Realm of Roses.  

In the small hamlet that has started to spring up near the Black Pier in the shadow of Drachenbrück is also an East Blackwood Company warehouse. 


The Proprietor

Marik Fulgrimson is a Merchant and Harbormaster of the East Blackwood Company as well as a Guard of the Embassy Guard.  He is also, the proprietor of The Salty Stick. For more information on Marik, click on this link.

Tournaments

Corsican Mug

Two competitors fight with one-handed weapons against one another while holding a mug or stein of ale or some other drink in their off hands.  The goal is to either render the other unable to continue the fight or knock most of the fluid out of the other's mug or stein.  

The winner will get their choice of a prize of Coin or a Tavern Card paid for by Ambassador Dagger of Blackwood.

Farkel

At the beginning of each turn, the player throws all the dice at once.

The goal is to be the first one to reach a certain number of points which is defined at the start of the game.

After each throw, one or more scoring dice must be set aside - see sections on scoring below -

The player may then either end their turn and bank the score accumulated so far or continue to throw the remaining dice.

If the player has scored all six dice, they have "hot dice" and may continue their turn with a new throw of all six dice, adding to the score they have already accumulated. There is no limit to the number of "hot dice" a player may roll in one turn.

If none of the dice score in any given throw, the player has "farkled" and all points for that turn are lost.

At the end of the player's turn, the dice are handed to the next player in succession (usually in clockwise rotation), and they have their turn.

Each player uses their own dice.

Scoring

1 thrown - A one will yield 100 points

5 thrown - A five will yield 50 points

3 or more kind of any other number will yield 100 points multiplied by the given number, eg. three twos are worth 200 points (with one as an exception as three ones are worth 1000 points) - see example table below

Dice combination Score

Each 1 100

Each 5 50

Three 1s 1000

Three 2s 200

Three 3s 300

Three 4s 400

Three 5s 500

Three 6s 600

Straight (5 Dice) 500

Straight (6 Dice) 1500

Four or more of the same kind is worth double the points, so four 3s are worth 600 points, five 3s are worth 1200 points etc.

The winner will get their choice of a prize of Coin or a Tavern Card paid for by Ambassador Dagger of Blackwood.
