Location: Roshmi City
Interactions: Torvi @Tae
After inquiring from the bartender, the cost of renting a room in tavern’s inn, Bowyn found himself in for quite the shock. He could deal with the overpriced mead of The Leaky Tap, he rarely minded parting with amas in exchange for alcohol but the price for room in inn was completely unreasonable. He had expected things in Roshmi to be a bit more than they were up north but for someone used to living rent free in the forest he was finding the city to be far more expensive than he cared for. Clearly the bartender could read the annoyance at the price on Bowyn’s face and the man assured him that ‘they wouldn’t find rooms more reasonable in the city, at least not in any place you’d want to be in after dark’. Normally Bowyn wouldn’t think twice about staying in the rougher areas of a city, and he doubted that Torvi would be easily intimidated either, but getting into trouble would draw unwanted attention to them. It seemed wiser to stay in the more savory parts of the city and after a failed attempt to haggle the barkeep down on the price Bowyn gave in and quickly finished his drink and ordered another to take his mind off the incurring expenses. Of course, seeing how this adventure was more than likely to end in death he might as well live frivolously until they met their end.
“Best not to gawk too much.” Bowyn warned quietly as he noticed Torvi looking around at the bar’s patrons as they headed towards a table away from any invasive ears. “I assume you don’t have quite the variety of creatures where you’re from?” Bowyn asked, from what little he could remember about the old stories of humans, they all had the silly round ears and lack wings, being fairly uniform in appearance other than size and coloring. He had been surprised when he first met Torvi to learn that most humans did not posses magic, and it was strange for him to think of a world where so little magic existed. Her world had sounded just as brutal and unforgiving as his own but without magic, or even flight, he imagined that would make it all even harder to bare. “With no wings and little magic, if you don’t mind my asking, what exactly does your world and it’s people have going for it?” Bowyn asked.
