Vallaki - Slums - The Gaping Wound
« on: April 11, 2012, 11:59:22 PM »
 "Various nefarious individuals have been seen lingering around the old Vallaki Slum's dive bar, the Gaping Wound. If rumors be true, the natty lads and lasses are looking for serving wenches, bouncer brutes, dice men, entertainers, and patrons to make the dust rise and shadows dance in the old tavern as time wanes away."

[Local slum denizen Dimitry Pochev was seen half-dragging, half-guiding a brutish, terrifying looking dog through the streets. The size of the dog changes with each telling, some saying it was the size of a horse, others claiming it was built more like an ox. They say the beast appeared more wolf than dog, scarred and snarling at passersby, with blood caked and matted into its shaggy mane, especially around its snout. Dimitry was seen taking the dog into the Gaping Wound bar. Why the Pochev's want such a fierce looking beast is the source of much speculation.]

The night brings with it yelling and fighting from the shady tavern in the Slums of the Gray City, and just as the sun grudgingly rises to light up another miserably rainy day the exotic man who only recently started working there steps out with a large corpse over a shoulder.
His bartender's apron is torn and the tavern's namesake glaringly obvious in his bloody visage.
He throws the corpse into the nearest sewer opening with a calm air and heads inside after pausing to wash the blood off his face in a muddy puddle.

The alleys around the Gaping Wound earlier in the evening were disrupted by the raucous screaming of the new Tepestani manager, as she seemed to chase around an animal through the streets. Her voice carried easily and something of "shapechanger" and "witch" might have easily been heard by any passers by. After returning to shut the doors to the Gaping Wound, and a few people in and out of the establishment, a pair of guards arrived, dragging the lifeless and beaten body of supposed witch out into the dark alleys of the slums, likely not to be seen again...

It would seem the staff of the Gaping Wound has no problem with making their violent stance known in regards to disruptive and dangerous patrons.

A well dressed gnome is seen coming and going from the Gaping Wound. Various people entering with her and then leaving after some time. The sound of a violin can be heard coming from inside the building on occasion.
