I don’t think dragons know about festive holidays, it’s a nice thought to think they might.
[i She couldn’t help but laugh a little at the thought, envisioning Christmas trees with sleepy dragons around it.]
We did, and again thank you for all of the decorations! It certainly makes this place much more festive.
I would like to think the beasts and bandits could give me a holiday reprieve.
::[I Jarod shrugged at the notion, knowing better than to assume anything of the sort in that nature. For all he knew, such beings were always creating trouble, but at the same time he could not be everywhere at once. There was only so much that could be done]::
By the way, yeah, we did do a good job round here.
[i She hummed among to herself as she listened to him.]
No monsters to conquer or villages to save during the festive time?
[i Although she was glad he was taking a break, of course.]
I think we did great with this place.
Most festive I’ve seen it in years!
Ah, good morning.
::[I Jarod let loose another yawn before showing off a half-smile, an easy indication
That the man was still half asleep. He knocked on the side of his temple slightly, as if such a notion would wake him up]::
Well, I did say I'd take a bit of a break so, here I am.
[i Glances up from behind the bar and smiles. She had done a good job brewing up hot chocolate, of course adding some festive spices and such which made the Tavern smell distinctly festive.]
I didn’t think you’d be here this time of year. Glad of the company though.
::[i Jarod yawned lazily as he made his way down the stairs from the second floor of the Tavern. The last week had blown by and there was not much he could remember regarding it, but that being said he did remember the effort put into decorating the place. As he hit the bottom of the stairs he paused to take it all in, from the tree to the wreaths to the lights and even ribbons. It was a sight to behold, and he couldn't help but smile at the work he and Tasia had put in. He made his way over to the bar counter and slid into the seat of his usual spot, yawning once more]::
That, or I heard seasickness is a very real thing.
[i She giggled a little at that because she highly doubted that any adventurer suffered from seasickness. She started to help with the lights and pondered on how they flowed so nicely.]
Yeah, I agree. Part of why I try to avoid travel by the sea. I can't really fight in the water.
::[I Jarod finished unwrapping the lights and moved to the tree, starting to coil them around starting near the top. There was a lot to work with, so he spaced it well enough to make full use of it all]::
Best not to try and beat a kraken from what I’ve read.
[i The barkeep giggled a little. It was probably for the best that Jarod had never run into such things. She eyed the lights and pondered on how they worked exactly, not exactly adept in magic.]
Never saw a Kraken but heard stories of them. Same for Mermaids. I did encounter sharks, dolphins and whales on my sea travels but never came across any fabled monsters
::[i Jarod saw Tasia begin to unravel a box of Mana-activated lights meant for decoration and began to assist her, taking appreciation for the folks who made sure the lights wouldn't become tangled during travel]::
Not sure I could beat a Kraken, honestly.
Are there monsters in the oceans?
[i She glanced up to him and eyed a box of lights. She started to unravel them slowly.]
I’ve read about krakens, water nymphs and such.
::[I Jarod nodded in response to her mentioning of the sea, and he hung up a handful of more ornaments as he thought it over. He hadn't spent too much time on the water, but he had enough experience to write about it. He noticed he set an ornament slightly lopsided and adjusted it accordingly]::
I've got a few of those, I'll be sure to add them.
[i She seemed pleased enough with that answer as she hung some more of the crystal like ornaments, observing her work for a little while.]
Good. I would particularly like stories about the seas and oceans.
[i She smiled up at him as she hung another ornament and shrugged. She’d never been to the ocean or the sea but she had heard it was rather beautiful, even the docks outside weren’t accurate and always seemed gloomy.]
::[i Jarod nodded in agreement about the books and their lack of emotion when reading. He too found them to be hard to enjoy, and so he would indeed make sure to include as much as he could remember from start to finish. He reached for a Ruby colored ornament for a change]::
As you wish, milady. I won't skimp out on even the most trivial of details.
[i She Jung another ornament on the tree, one that looked like glass but was shaped in a rather pretty snowflake.]
That sounds like a deal. And don’t leave out any details, I’d love to know what goes on outside these walls. Sure I can read the books and stuff but they’re all so... factual. There’s no feeling or anything to relate to.
