    *Podolak enters the tavern and looks around, noticing it empty he sets to work on the hearth getting a roaring fire all ablaze*

    Hey all,

    Once upon a time we did not have a daily thread. Instead it was "The Vampire's Tavern." This was back in the 2001ish time frame. That thread grew really large due to our intense activity so I created a second tavern thread. When that grew too large I just decided to start doing a new thread every day. Well, that has been going on for some years and fortunately continued after I left. I know there has been times when it stopped for a few weeks or more but it seems to have been a consistent theme here.

    Since returning to Stratics a several months ago (not sure how long I've been back exactly) I have noticed that although we have a good community, there may not be a need for a new thread every day. Given that, I thought we might try just using one thread for a while. This will not be stickied, it will just stay near the top based on participation. If it doesn't work out, we can go back to the other way.

    Have a great one all,

    *moves to the counter and starts the coffee and hot water*

    Chefnia,

    A good cook is one of the most important positions. We have lots of hungry patrons and well...my cooking usually leaves something to be desired. Often that desire is antacids...

    Thank you for the platter Chefnia.

    Black Sun, that does seem far more accurate. What did we end up using my last cake for again?

    I think we ended up using it as a stool. Someone had stolen one of the sawed off logs from the bar and we needed a replacement.

    Perhaps the meer can accomplish this task Chefnia, I hear tell of him as a good hunter.

    ((Woody, am I spelling Chefnia's name correcty?))

    Ahh right right. I think after a time Va'lis made off with it for some nefarious experiment.

    If I have a long lost twin he better not be better looking than I am.
    I shall have to hunt him down and check, and if he is more handsome than I, I will bludgeon him in his sleep with a stale turnip until I am the better looking twin.

    A genius plan.

    Nothing for me thank you Claudia. Your attention to the patrons is all I can ask.

    *looks to Black Sun*. Perhaps Dark Sun is the slightly less evil of the twins. Dark being not quite black. I think there was a movie, Pitch Black, I hear the main character was very evil.
