Val'Raveran | The White Lion

Val'Raveran | The White Lion

Postby Thalar » Thu Jan 10, 2008 11:16 am

A large five-story building dominates the eastern district of Raveran; The White Lion, home of the Whitestone Arena and the Harem, renowned for its readily available drugs and courtesans of both genders and most races.

In addition to entertainment of various kinds the White Lion offers affordable lodgings for the poorest of travellers, as well as luxurious apartments for those of wealth, catering to anyone and everyone. In its stables you'll find anything from riding lizards to surfacer mounts, "horses".

On the ground floor is a bar, with a good view of the Arena's action if one desires such entertainment, on the next floor up is a more refined restaurant where music, song and dance is the available entertainment, with the restaurant sectioned into smaller areas suitable for private parties. Some of these areas have windows which one may open to watch the Arena. On this floor, in a separate section, are the first lodgings, and the next floors are all lodgings of variable quality, from the simplest of cots to queen-sized luxury beds and rooms to match.

The tavern is currently run by a light elf who calls herself Redstar, she dyes her hair a bright red and wears clothes of the same color. She may be seen occasionally, giving orders or recieving important guests. The staff who keep the Lion running come from all races, as Redstar employs people strictly based on their skills.

Celebrian stood infront of the huge building, its obvious she was in awe, then she caught eye of some of The Heram and blushed when she realized what they were. takeing a deep breath she readied herself and walked in the front door, or what she thought was the front door to find a room that she could stay in until she can get her own place. she removed her headgear and tried to smooth out her hair somewhat before walking to a desk.

"ummm could i get a room please?"

A light elf looked up from behind the desk, and beamed Celebrian a welcoming smile. Clad in a delicate, red outfit, with golden hair and green eyes, she made a striking figure. "Greetings! We have several rooms available, including anything from the basic necessities to your own personal Harem host or hostess," the light elf told Celebrian, "Would you like me to give you a review of the available rooms?"

She paused for a moment, eyeing the woman in front of her more closely. "Or would you prefer to be guided to one of our simplest rooms for a good night's sleep and make up your mind about rooms in the morning instead? That'll be 3 ada for the night, which must be paid in advance, of course."

Eliza stepped through the threshold to the white lion with a sigh and a small on her face she looked incredibly enough half-decent. Just battle worn, and travel weary. "Hello anyone here?" She said softly, as she stood there feeling kind of awkward as she fiddled with a tiny round stone she found on her way to Val'Raveran. A tiny stone no bigger then a pebble, yet round, that she found herself rolling it between her fingers softly letting another sigh escape her lips.

"Of course," the light elf replied, and snapped her fingers sharply. In the short moments before the attendant arrived, there was a brief sensation of music, and the smell of good food insinuated itself into the lobby. A slim drowolath male in blue-accented red livery came up to the desk at a light trot, and bowed in Celebrian's direction.
"Take her to the nearest available room, and make sure she has dinner served as soon as possible," the light elf ordered, and the male nodded, then gestured to Celebrian, indicating the way he had come. "Please follow me, honored guest, and I'll lead you to your room."
At that same moment, the light elf behind the desk called out to a new guest.

"Over here," a voice called to Eliza, and the voice turned out to belong to a female light elf, clad in a delicate, red outfit, with golden hair and green eyes. She was standing behind a desk, and next to her a liveried drowolath male was talking with a drowolath female who had been at the control post earlier. "How may I be of assistance?"

The liveried male guided Celebrian through a set of impressive wooden doors, and then up a magnificent, carpeted stairway. Once up on the next floor, the male consulted a small notebook, and then smiled shyly at Celebrian. "Here you are," he told her as they stopped in front of a smaller door, one of many in the hallway. The number on the door said 1-7, but a quick glance at the doors next to it would show that the rooms were not numbered in sequence.

The male opened the door and then stepped back, allowing Celebrian a good view of the room within. It was a small, clean room, with a single bed along the right wall. There was a nightstand next to the bed, a single mana light in the ceiling, and a small but inviting carpet on the floor next to the bed. On the left side of the room was a small table and a chair. Next to the door, a mirror was mounted into the wall.

The male pulled up a small purse, and extracted an engraved gemstone with the numbers 1-7 clearly visible. The gemstone was small enough to fit comfortably within the palm of his hand. With his other hand he extracted a string of plain metal chain, and attached it to the gemstone, allowing it to be used as a necklace.
"Please charge this keystone, it will lock your door when you wish for privacy. Please keep it with you at all times, you must present it at the lobby desk at the end of your stay or face a substantial fee."

"Such a big place..." Pariel let out an admiration as he glanced upon the sheer height of the building. He had been told this was the place he was searching for, somewhere for the wary to rest. He would not have expected to be THAT big. Apparently it was more of an inn, some kind of... leisure compound even. While certainly the Harem caught his eye and the fights of the Arena thrilled him, he needed sleep more than anything else. And so, he walked towards the counter, only to find the red-dressed female elf, certainly a standing figure, beffitting the ambience of the place.

If i can allow myself to do the pun, this may be the golden opportunity to test something

Pariel coughed, and recalling his knowledge of foreign tongues, adressed the lady, in the tongue of the light elves.

[["Greetings. I would like a room"]]

"Welcome, traveller, in darkness as light," the light elf replied graciously in her own tongue, albeit with an accent Pariel could not place. When she continued, however, she was speaking drow. "We have several rooms available, including anything from the basic necessities to your own personal Harem host or hostess. Would you like me to give you a review of the available rooms?"

Celebrian took the green gem and charged it then and there. looking into the room once more she looked to the male and summomed what charm she had left in her. "this will do nicely. thank you. I just have one more question to ask. which way to the baths? I feel i will need one very soon."

Kyore'saa Val'Ilhar'dro burst strode easily through the door of the White Lion. He frequented this place alot in the recent years, and after that business with the nether summoner, he was in dire need of a drink. He approached the bar with a sort of nonchalant swagger, his guitar case slung across his back.

"Good day to you, Madame Redstar. I hope I find you in good health."

He bows to her with a flourish and kisses her hand with a roguish grin.

I don't get what she said, but it's clear that my elven is understandable at least. Pariel grinned with self-satisfacion. Upon hearing the word hostess he stood for a little while pondering the situation. But his daydream was short, he couldn't afford such a thing.

"A simple room for the night will do. I am tired and I need a meal and a bed." He honestly replied to the elf. "I'll start worrying about finding a job tomorrow."

The streets were relatively empty that night. But then again many of the cities inhabitants did sleep during the 'night'. Kil'lian chuckled at the thought. It might be the middle of the day on the surface for all he knew. Though humans seemed to have some inborn knowledge of when day and night were, so chances were it was dark above ground as well as under.

Kil'lian stopped in front of the door to a large building. The White Lion, his destination. He hadn't frequented the tavern often. And not once since he had returned to Raveran from his rival imposed exile. But they no longer looked for him, and even if they did he doubted they'd look among the common mercenary scum that seemed to be everywhere these days. Not that he'd forgotten them. No he remembered all to well the faces of those who had run him out of the city, though they were slightly fatter now sucking the life from the remains of his business. But revenge was best served cold as they say. Though two of them found that Kil'lian preferred his revenge hot, usually to the point of their house collapsing in flame.

Kil'lian openned the door and stepped in. He was sure he'd not be remembered. It had been too long, and he had changed quite a bit. He had lost the softness that twenty years of luxury built up, and he had added red spike tattoo across his right eye, covering the lovely parting gift he had acquired from an assassin’s blade as it almost took out his eye. His hair was also cropped close where it had once reached down between his shoulders, still dyed the dark purple that blended in so well to the gloom that one found away from cities.

He crossed the floor to the bar quickly, not wasting a single motion. His cloak swayed a bit as he walked, rumpled around the travel pack and small shield on his back. As his stepped the outline of a blade could be seen to any who paid enough attention. He took a seat near the bar, nodding to Redstar. "Some Mushroom beer with a hot meal please." he stated, opening his cloak and revealing to pommel of his blade before he removed several ada from the pouch that hung next to it.

Meckruco:

"The public baths are located just at the end of this hallway, just follow it all the way. There is a hot pool for all guests, or for an additional two ada you could reserve one of the private baths - nothing luxurious on this level, but it has all the basic necessities, " the male offered helpfully.

--

grfu/Pariel:

The light elf was slightly stunned at the Illhar'dro musician's entry, and froze in the middle of replying to Pariel's question as Kyore'saa kissed her hand. She made a slightly awkward bow as she seemed unsure whether to extract her hand from his grasp or not. With an embarrassed cough, she moved to the side of the counter and rang a small bell, before moving back. "Milady Redstar is currently unavailable, my Lord," she spoke carefully, as if worried she might offend the noble.

Turning her attention back to Pariel, she nodded towards one of the nearby doors, which opened to a human female, dressed in livery. "That'll be 3 ada for the night, which must be paid in advance. Do you wish to reserve the room for a longer period of time? If you have yet to decide, you can think it over until tomorrow, and even upgrade to a better room if you wish it."
Meanwhile the human approached the counter, gracefully and with a sense of purpose. She waited attentively for the light elf to give her a task.

From the other side of the room, a purple-haired drowolath female, dressed in the same red outfit as the golden-blonde light elf at the counter, approached, and adressed Kyore'saa. "Welcome to the White Lion, how may I be of assistance?"

--

stratigo:

The light elf currently in charge of the bar, was a short female, with sparkling green eyes, and braided, blue-dyed hair. She wore a short apron over a black and red two piece outfit, which revealed little but suggested many things. "Coming right up," she said cheerfully. "That'll be two ada for the meal and three for the beer."
She waited for Kil'lian to count up the ada and give her the required amount, as she knew better than to take someone's cash right out of their hand.
