    *quickly enters the tavern from the bitter cold wintry outdoor weather*

    Brr....

    *shivers a bit and makes his way to the fire*

    Hmm....died down a little bit last night.

    *loads up the logs and kindling wood*

    Vas Flam

    *the flames take to the kindling and the fire starts to grow*

    There we go.

    *makes his way back to the counter, starts the coffee and hot water for tea and cocoa*

    I know we are going to need some warmth today. Welcome all and relax by the fire with a warm beverage.

    *watches the meer enter the tavern, not noticeably disturbed by the cold*

    Good Day to you sir!

    *pours the tea and hands it to the meer*


    So um...what are fish chips anyway?

    Hum... fish chips... are ...

    * writes down the recipe... *

    Cut fillets in to 2 inch squares. Make a batter by mixing dry ingredients and slowly stirring in beer. Beat until smooth. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. Dip each piece of fish into batter. Drain. Deep fry a few pieces at a time until golden brown. Drain. Serve with salt and lemon wedges...

    * leaves note with the ingredients *

    Sounds like homemade fish sticks.

    *thinks about fresh caught perch fillets*
    Mmmm.... perch.... *drools*

    Fish for breakfast? I can handle that.

    *starts up the deep fryer*

    Thank you very much for the education. So, Black Sun...

    *motions for him to sit by the fire*

    Can I get you a drink? I know very well it is cold where you are.

    * Comes through the door shaking some snow off his cloak as he removed it, muttering something about it not being a fit day for man nor beast*

    You would not happen to have some hot cider with some cinnamon in it, would you? A nice drink like that would hit the spot right about now. I doth love the scenery at this time of year, but wearing full plate mail isn't the best way to stay warm.

    * moves across the room and sits down on a chair close to the fire to warm up *

    So any of you spot the White Christmas Stag yet? I hear it is giving gifts to those it runs across.

    *snaps out of his fish induced stupor and takes a seat*
    Yes, its a chilly one out there. The white stuff's a-flyin'.

    So is everyone ready? The fat man comes in just 2 days!

    *watches the man clad in metal armor enter the tavern and is very thankful he does not sport that himself*

    Good day sir, um...do you need a softer set of cloths whilst you let your armor warm? I'll check on the cider.

    *goes to the back room and returns with a jug*

    I do believe we have some fine aged cider, perhaps slightly more fermented than usual if you are interested. A little bit of cinnamon and time on the burner you might not be able to tell the difference, at first.

    I have not run in to this deer you speak of, though I have heard tale of him. Admittedly I have been chasing other tail of late.

    *looks over to Black Sun*

    Indeed, two more days and the big man arrives. Ready? Hmm...I suppose I was either ready in October or not ready at all!

    *takes a sniff of Podolak's cider, winces and passes it on*
    I've not run into this white beast yet. I've heard tales of his existence, but I can't yet verify that with my own eyes.

    *chuckles*

    Maybe you should try a bit of this cider and you might be seeing white stags everywhere, or is that white sticks? Hmm...who is to say?

    That's what I'm afraid of.
