[House of Bardic Blues, Wayfarer's Den]
Sweeping folds of deep blue broadcloth drape every wall from ceiling to floor, making the shop appear more like a tent than a building in the middle of town. Candles of all shapes and sizes are arranged throughout the room, adding to the nomadic feel while providing some meager light. Exotic odors linger to tantalize the senses, while the faint sounds of castanets clap rhythmically in the background. Plump pillows in various shades of blue lie sprawled about if one feels the need to relax. You also see Chofupi Tibvaov, a dark flowing curtain, and a cloth-covered table with a large leather-bound book on it.

Note: You may be able to haggle for lower prices depending on your Charisma.

Go Curtain

[House of Bardic Blues, Baubles and Bits]
Candlelight dances off of trinkets and spangles that are on casual display about the small room. Jewelry pieces rest on silk pillows and silk-covered stands with seemingly cavalier disregard for their safekeeping. More broadcloth hangs from the ceiling and walls in a shade of blue that's a bit lighter than the cloth in the Den. Sparkling jewels, sewn into the heavy fabric, create a spectacular kaleidoscope of reflecting shades of blue as the candlelight caresses them. You also see a cloth-draped arch, Dipuva Tibvaov, a bright blue silk-covered counter with a small leather book on it, a narrow iron gate, a dark flowing curtain, and a crackled blue parchment.


~*~ Items in the Baubles and Bits ~*~
~*~ area of the shop are only sold to ~*~
~*~ those of the Bardic profession. ~*~
~*~ Thank you for you patronage! ~*~

             ~*~ About Bardic Knots ~*~
                         ~*~

~+ The Bardic Spirit Knot +~
 
     ~+  The Spirit Knot is quite popular.  Although the Knot itself is fairly
simple -- a faint image of a bell can be seen entwined in a sea of twisted
strands -- what it represents is much more complicated.  The Spirit Knot holds
the Bardic Spirit, and serves as a constant reminder to the wearer of what it
means to be a Bard.
     ~+  Bardic Spirit Knots can be found on page 7.

~+ The Bardic Soul Knot +~
 
     ~+  The Soul Knot is quite intricate, and difficult to create, but the effort
is well worth it.  Complex in its form, this Knot portrays an image of two tails
twining about each other, almost as if one.  This Knot is usually given to another
on their wedding day by their mate.
     ~+  Bardic Soul Knots can be found on page 8.

~+ The Bardic Blood Knot +~
 
     ~+  The Blood Knot is a cluster of circles, all intertwined with one another,
without end.  A Knot of Sadness, the Bard who is left behind wears this Knot to
show their mourning state, and as a remembrance of what once was.
     ~+  We sell Bardic Blood Knots in the niche, just through the arch.

Go Curtain, Go gate

[House of Bardic Blues, Secluded Courtyard]
This partially covered courtyard is pungent with the smells of savory spices and incense. Exotic plants and flowers thrive here, creating an oasis away from the city's bustle and noise. Filmy blue fabric falls from the latticework overhead, cloaking the courtyard from outside view and creating a cozy, shrouded ambiance. Tall ironwork tables stand close to one another, providing stable and attractive places to enjoy a light repast. A roped-off stairway leads up to the next level of the building. You also see a wine-stained keg with a sign on it, a tiled urn, a blue-glazed tiled cart with some stuff on it, a narrow iron gate and Lumosa Tibvaov.


A sign reads: Mulled Wine. Need a tankard or stein to fill up with. 65 copper. No refunds! (PULL KEG to get your beverage.)
