[The Laughing Nomlas]
Rough wooden planks cover the walls and frame the door to conceal the underlying metal. Sheltering tree boughs stretch from the ceiling as if to greet entering visitors with open arms and wish them luck on their way out. An expansive mural provides the backdrop for the community picnic table situated at the rear of the shop. The carpet of cedar needles upon the floor fills the air with an earthy fragrance, completing the illusion of a secluded forest hideaway.
You also see a cedar display rack with several things on it, a hefty cedar counter with a few things on it, a slatted cedar fence with a few things on it, a pink deobar pegboard with a few things on it and a large cedar plank sign painted with bright pink lettering.
Obvious exits: none.
A large cedar plank sign painted with bright pink lettering reads:
"Nomlas - What You Need to Know!"
"1. The nomlas is a type of fish. They are good eatin', but I kinda admire them more for their spunk.
Ain't easy swimmin' upstream!"
"2. Nomlas is a color, too. It's a real interestin' orangey-pink that got its
name on account of it lookin' an awful lot like the flesh of the nomlas fish.
Strong, manly color, if you ask me!"
An expansive mural:
|A crystal blue river rushes over rocks and logs underneath a canopy of towering cedar trees. Dozens of ruddy pink fish leap from the water's depths, trying desperately to complete their journey upstream. One nomlas swims ahead of the rest, succeeding against the river's many obstacles. Its open mouth and sparkling eyes are rendered in such a way as to seem like the triumphant creature is forever laughing in joy.
