Mr Krasnov long ago saw a gap in the market that his bar could fill.It caters for Orcs, Goblins, Lizard People and other races that are seen, not as evil, but as inferior by many people, and has a strict *no humans allowed policy (except for Mr Krasnov himself of course.)
Mr Krasnov long ago saw a gap in the market that his bar could fill.It caters for Orcs, Goblins, Lizard People and other races that are seen, not as evil, but as inferior by many people, and has a strict *no humans allowed policy (except for Mr Krasnov himself of course.) It has two entrances, a steel door at the street, guarded by two Troll doormen, and a smaller door at the back guarded by a Gargoyle doorman, but trouble is relitivly rare due to the fact that many of the customers know that this is the only club willing to take them, so they really don't want to be barred from it.
Inside there are plush leather-backed chairs for those who want to sit and rest, a dancefloor of stone, strong enough to bear the weight of the heavyest troll or gargoyle, and hired bands who, depending on the night, will play the latest Orckish,Gobliniod,Lizard or Pixie tunes.There is also a huge bar with enough staff to serve up to twenty people at once.
Contrary to rumour, they do not serve human flesh at the bar, but almost every other dish and drink that the non-human race could possibly want is here, for a price. Here the non human races can look for romance,socialise and generally have fun with their own kind, secure in the knowledge that they won't be hassled or worse by any racist human *adventurers*.

Of course we could ask, 'If humans/ good races hate them, how did they get into the city and were not hunted down by the city guard/ militia?'
How come the city has not used this place as a 'roach motel', raiding it/ burning it down to rid themselves of all these evil races.
Branding them as 'EVIL RACES' means they would not be allowed in civilized lands, let alone cities. I mean if you were a 'good land' it would be your duty to kill all these things.
This is the equivalent of having a capitalist catering bar in the USSR in the 1970s. Sure there were a few capitalists around... keeping a real low profile... but gathering together in one place was just asking for a KGB round up.
Maybe an edit to make it 'socially less acceptable races', kind of like an african american joint in the 1920s-30s. It could be an Orc Drum bar, instead of a jazz joint... but you get the idea.
Of course we could ask ourselves, would these various races socialize? Or does this place have the tensions that a bar that straddles two strong ethnic groups' territories. Add gangs to that.
I've edited it, and I'll edit it more in the future. That's what it's supposed to be like, the equvilant of a 1920's/1930's African American bar. Not an illegal place, and not so hated that the locals are angry enougth to destroy it, but it caters to non-human races in a place where said races are seen as inferior.It's a place where the races can go to spend a few hours without humans and with their own kind.
I see some of those races as getting along OK,whilst others would have their own club night if there were enougth of them. And yes, gangs are a problem.
It sent my imagination going at least. I hope you will edit this more in the future Cheka Man.
Idea's there, but it need work.
Hmm ... nice idea
I could certainly see such a place existing (depending on the status of non-humans within the city) but needs a little fleshing out
3/5 for a promising idea
This could slip easily to into a rural community in a Shadowrun setting.
A good thought - a place like this could exist so long as the races are not kill-on-sight types.
