Cashmirius's

By:

Cashmirius’s is one of the finest cafes in the city.  It is does not have a large indoor seating area. The small tables with their crisp creme linens are crowded with stools.  If you sit inside, the host will often sit other people you don’t know at your table.  This is great for meeting new people, but it is tough if you are trying to have a private talk.

Most of the table at Cashmirius’s are outside. There is a ivy decorated low fence separating the "seating area" from the rest of the plaza.  The large creme awning protects many of the tables from the sun or elements.  The tables are slightly larger than the interior ones. Four to eight can fit around them.

The food here is exceptional.  Cashmirius has been dead for nearly 150 years, but her name and recipes live on.  The cafe here serves the best pastries, klah (coffee/chocolate/nut tasting drink), and tea in the city.  The rest of the food is top notch as well.

This is the place to be and be seen by the noble and important folks.  Guildmasters and Dukes seem to be able to procure a table without a wait.  The Highpriest can be seen dining with the Mayor’s wife. The young nobles or retainers of the noble houses tend to while away the afternoons here.  Scholars from the colleges and elder guildsmen often find themselves here for lunch.  Many a lively discussion political, intellectual, or religious, can be overhead from nearby tables.

Sorry Moon, but this one just is. It is an idea, and it is here, but there is nothing to do with it as it is.

I am inclined to agree with Strolen. A lot of stuff like this resided in the forums and we are all gonna get it. This particular location could have needed something to make it interesting... plot possibilities, secret societies meeting here, old rumours about the place, and so on. Yes, most of us can make this ourselves, but that is beside the point.

Maybe it is a gender thing, but I really like this. It is just plopable into a place. It includes bits of description that I don't have to make up. My only thing is that it is a little short.

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
