DiCarrigan's Den

By:

DiCarrigan’s Den has the appearance of a “common house”, but it is actually a club.  Only those who are members (having paid their dues to the house. Their they gamble, drink, and socialize in proper splender.

DiCarrigan’s Den

While this appears to be a well maintained “common house”/ tavern/ inn, it is actually a club.  Only those who are members (having paid their dues to the house… i.e. set up their credit here) or those brought with a member can enter. (The door is guarded by two armed men in the foyer.) Inside, it is a very nice tavern of the noble level with a variety of food and drink. The serving girls are pretty, but not here for other types of enjoyment. There are a number of hexagonal and octagonal tables topped in felt where gambling games using cards are played. The chairs at these tables are quite comfortable. The various members can check out chips from the house (using their credit). Members can even draw off their credit to generate cash.

The Membership is a number of nobles who enjoy gambling, lesser nobles and city officials who utilize their connections to get in and use their skills to generate cash, and richer merchant types. Many a deal has been made over a friendly game of cards here.

There is a small squad of private soldiers here that act as security, guarding the members, the doors, and the cash in the building. They are well paid and quite elite in their skills. Some of them are moonlighting here from the jobs as The King’s Hand - the spy organization for the kingdom… though nobody knows that.

Yawn. At least you have a name to go with the cliche.

KendraHeart, while you are entitled to your opinion, perhaps you could phrase your criticism more courteously?

It's not bad, but DiCarrigan's Den doesn't have anything outstanding about it. I assume that it was intended to be a generic location, someplace that would serve as part of a cityscape, rather than an adventure waiting to happen.

Of course, not every pub needs to be filled with assassins and schemes against the PCs. This one gives the GM the option of adding intrigue, as spies and nobles meet within its private chambers, but doesn't ram the plot hooks down anyone's throat.

considering she's Moon's best buddy and PC, the yawn is not something to worry about, Wulf :)

Well for sure it was a good scroll post. A rewrite would be useful, as for many other items that traveled here from the forums, but I sometimes there isn't the time or will (Mathom knows I have some myself).

An okay basic location.

1971 Dodge DynaMax

       By: Scrasamax

The Dodge DynaMax is a rare care, coming at exactly the wrong time in history. The End of the muscle car era was nigh, and the market was already filled out with GTOs, Mustangs, Camaros, Chevelles, Novas and a dozen other high performance poor handling vehicles. The DynaMax had a plan to dominate the market with a combination of factory turbochargers and a complex eight speed gearbox. The machine was planned to triumph over the human driver element. What ended up happening was excess costs and mechanical issues saw the turbochargers removed and replaced with a conventional supercharger, and the eight speed transmission ended up being the bane of the car's existence. More DynaMaxes were destroyed or totalled by transmission failures than anything else. The car remains an ugly and ambitious reminder of a day gone by
