    A tall man walks into the dingy room, dust motes illuminated from the few rays of sun that sneak in the windows. Surrounding him are a two dozen tables covered in thick layers of dust. To the man's right stretches a long bar, covered in an equally thick layer of grime and dust. He goes to set his coat on the table nearest him when the table disintegrates into a pile of wood. 

    "I knew this place was a dump, but I hoped that the tables wouldn't be a death trap. Looks like I've got a lot of work to do," he mumbled to himself as he picked his coat up and tossed it on the floor. He then picked up a broom that he had set by the door and got to sweeping.

    1 MONTH LATER

    Warm light spills out on to the street from the open door and windows of the tavern. Despite COVID concerns from the citizens of Torn, many had come out for the opening night of Wood's Tavern. After all, if they could survive waves of Leslie's STDs and Duke's weaponized common cold, surely some little cough is easy enough to handle.

    Wood and his wife Witch are behind the bar, pouring drinks and making meals with whatever edible food is smuggled into Torn. Only the few who are sober and not high realize that it's been ages since they've had a decent meal. After all, there's plenty of carbs in the form of beer, but when was the last time anyone had seen a fruit around? One that wasn't destined for one of the moderator's houses anyway.

    A sign on the door said that all were welcome and the first drink was free. After that, they were earned by a good tale or by completing one of Wood or Witch's crazy tasks.





    Welcome to my tavern! Please have fun, have some drinks, make some friends, and no shooting! (Stabbings pending approval.) I'll be around.

    An empty sign at the door says "Sponsers desired!" 

    If you're so desperate that you come to the RP section of the forum for some advertisement, here's where you can place it. All Wood asks is that you keep the drinks flowing for a few days and do a silly dance for the patrons every third Monday.

    Moon walks in, in a red dress. 

    She has a bloody cheek, a fat lip, and bruises up and down her usually modestly shapely body. She sits at the empty counter. "Scotch, please!" She calls, very softly.

    Angels keep falling from the sky.

    I will take their broken wings and I'll learn to fly!

    I will face everything and rise! 💖

    Wings were made to fly. Fears were born to die. I will push through the pain. Pushing through, breaking through. Whatever it takes; what I gotta do. Give it my all, all that I have got. Aint gonna stop til i get to the top!

    Wood cleans out a glass, before he pours a glass of scotch for the bruised up Moon. He looks her up and down as he passes her the glass.

    "What's the other guy look like?" He asks.

    "A bloody, shot up mess, now. Or wrapped in a body bag, I sometimes forget how fast police work." 

    "To endings," she toasts, and takes the glass, downing it in moments. She then pulls out a bloody Magnum and Diamond Icicle and starts cleaning them, unloading the bullets, checking the sight.

    Angels keep falling from the sky.

    "Well, the officers around here certainly are improving if they get them into body bags. They used to just toss them in the harbor as buoys," Wood joked. He nodded his head as the woman downed the shot.

    "Just a reminder, we keep it clean in here. No shooting. We're working on the permits for stabbing. Torn is very particular about which establishments can have stabbing licenses. But, anyway, just keep it clean for now." He adds. He fills up her shot glass once more.

    "I promise, I will keep it clean. Until someone tries flirting....I hate those kids that try to flirt. " Moon says, suddenly now in a clean white skirt, button-up shirt and corduoy jacket. "I'll keep my bat ready..." she says, pulling it out of...well...nowhere.

    Wood nodded as he returned to cleaning his glasses. Given the diseases most of the Torn denizens had, he had to use industrial grade bleach to clean out the cups. This required a lot of his attention.

    "Anything worth noting going on in the world out there? Faction wars? Dirty Bombs? Special Holidays?" Wood inquired, his eyes focused on the work at hand.

    "I don't know, and dont care. Aint no one mess with Moon in these parts, or her faction of 5. You hear TGS is coming for you, you better scream for Moon's mercy. 

    Though beer day is coming up," she says, suddenly not slurring her own words, her face looking clear as a crystal. She then readjusts back to the way she was, and pulls out her famed 72% quality Armalite. Strokes the barrel. Her black hair swishes softly as she cleans and as a fast shooting gun outside rattles the street.

    RAT-AT-AT-AT-AT-AT-AT, the gun whirls down. Someone screams. "Sounds like I gotta go. See ya, Wood" she says mysteriously, as she hadn't asked your name.

    Yazi opens the door, and looks around, surprised to see people there. He walked in, wearing a light blue jacket, with a black shirt beneath. The jacket was a zip up, and a mask lay on the side of his head, an apple. His pants were orange, with black shoes, and the colour combination made one person want to throw up. Yazi sat down, a holster seen on his black shirt, holding a worn Navy Revolver.

    "G'day, mate." I say, smiling. "You got any juice?"

    Yazi wasn't much of an alcoholic, having preferred drinks that were safer for children. His favourite was orange juice, mainly due to it's taste. However, the logos usually looked nice, too, which he called a big plus. Only time Yazi drank any alcohol was is he was paid, or if he was in a really good or really bad mood. Not over or below.

    Yazi pulled out a small butterfly knife from his pocket, which he flipped around in a similar matter to the Spy from Team Fortress 2, but instead of managing a perfect maneuver, he dropped it, catching it with his foot. He quickly picked it up, and put it away.

    "Orange juice, if you can. S'all right if you can't."

    Wood watched as the new customer came up to the counter and took a seat. Wood nodded as the man made himself comfortable.

    "Good afternoon. I think I have some juice around here. Let me see what I can do." He replied.

    Wood dug around in the fridge, his trench coat whirling and briefly displaying his dual Barettas. Even though he was still working on his stabbing permit, it helped to be able to flash a little heat if some trouble makers came by. If that didn't shoo them off, the Armalite hanging underneath the bar for the rare occasion.

    Wood stood up and came back to the man as he held up two containers.

    "I don't have any orange juice at the moment. I've got pomegranate and prune." He said as he set a glass before the gent. He watched as the man slipped the knife away.

    "You look new around. Have you been in Torn long?" Wood asked.

    I stand outside the tavern and take a moment to stare at it, inspecting it for no particular reason. It seemed decent enough.

    I walk inside and I have already prepared myself for any attention that I may bring. The ends of my hair are white, looking quite old as if I haven't been to the salon in a while. My natural hair color is black and that was the dominant color. My eyes are two distinct colors so that would draw some attention too; my left eye was black and the right one was a milky white to light gray color. It was unusual but I don't like to blend into the crowd.

    I make my way to the bar and I take a sit next to another woman who looks like someone I do not want to mess with. I am a small fish in the big pond and I will get eaten if I don't tread carefully. I wait to be served.

    Perfect-Pine-89, as he's called, opens the door, takes a few steps in and looks around. "Torn really has gone down hill." He says walking over to a table and sitting down. He is wearing a black suit and shiny shoes with a red tie and shirt underneath, a hidden Luger in his jacket. His hair is brown and short but combed over, he wears an eyepatch on his left eye, a scar underneath. The beginning and start of the scar showing. His right eye is blue, pure blue. He sits down and scribbles on some paper and then tucks it in his jacket, waiting to be served...

    He looks around, waiting. He gets up and walks to the bathroom, looking at the patrons. He enters the bathroom and goes. He washes his hands and leaves. He sits down again, but this time, at the bar, hands in an arched formation.

    "Pomegranate." I answer. "Heard bad things of prune juice."

    Yazi took no notice of the other person, focusing on the "conversation" at hand.

    "Y'heard of Skyrim? Ah, who am I kidding, you likely have."

    Perfect-Pine-89 reached in his right pocket of his jacket and took out a packet of what seemed to be Pain killers. He took one and put it back, swallowing the Pain killer in one go without water and the proceeded to take the paper out of his jacket a scribble some notes on it again. After a while, he put it back and crossed his arms on the counter.

    Yazi looked across in amazement. Well, half-amazement.
    "Huh." I say. "Thought I was the only person who did that."

    Perfect-Pine-89 grabs a napkin and starts drawing idea for random things on it then stuffs it into his coat pocket. He waits patiently for his water, knowing he has a "meeting" to attend to.

    He waits anxiously, wondering the what the time is. He leans in next to Yazi and says "Hey, mate, what's the time?" After he says he leans back to his original position, waiting for a reply.

    “Wood, I need you back here a moment!” Yells a voice from the kitchen, further back in the tavern.

    Moderately surprised, Wood pardons himself before giving his answer, passing a glass of water to the gentleman in a suit and tie before heading through the double doors.

    Moments later, a woman pops out the same doors, a pad of paper and pen in hand. Though looking a bit frazzled, she approaches the two gentleman towards the center of the counter.

    “Apologies for the wait lads, was having a bit of trouble with a particularly angry grocer over the phone.” She sighs as her furrowed-brows relax, mumbles, “Let’s see here...” and ducks under the counter for a moment.

    Coming back up with a juice bottle, she grabs a glass and pours a healthy amount in saying, “Pomegranate right?” Passing the glass to the man with the blue jacket and apple mask, she screws the juice lid on, straightens up and smiling asks, “Now, what can I get you boys? Drinks are nice but it’s food that keeps the body going.”
