  1. Player Initiated Plots (PIPs)

    Malachi has been looking for some fish folk to come crawling out of the lake so she can discuss things with them! 1) Who is planning on going - Malachi, and if I can rope them into them, some of the prominent Septons. The leader of them seems to have some history with them. 2) What you're planning on doing, and what you hope to accomplish. Malachi wishes to know more of the Dragon that the fish-people claim their origins to. She would like to learn more about their culture and whatnot also, and is part of my attempts to create an in-game book of knowledge of the monsters and other humanoids of Novitas. 3) Any relevant history or NPCs that are important. None that I am currently privy to. Please pick NPCs that are not deathly allergic to nuts/almonds/cinnamon, Malachi intends to offer them something in trade that contains these ingredients.
  2. December Tavern Menu

    This time around, it looks like whoever was responsible for refreshing the menus each month either got lazy or forgot. While the December menu is up, it's terribly obvious that the November one still lurks underneath it. Waiting. A little torn from handling by tavern patrons, but still strong. None the less, the December menu reads: As Winter finally sinks all of its cold teeth into Maplewood, we gather 'round the Inn Hearth in order to stay warm and tell stories of summers gone by. The Spinning Jenny is proud to serve the following: Friday Evening will be our in-house Ziti Marinara. Freshly made noodles are cooked and served with a hearty dollop of our homemade Marinara sauce. Saturday Morning will be our typical, popular breakfast fair. Chicken eggs are cracked into a bowl filled with sliced potatoes and generous bacon slices and milk, and then baked into our casserole pans to make our popular meal. In the afternoon, we will be serving a hearty meal of meat n' potatoes. Baked chicken drumsticks served with mashed potatoes? You'll be thinking of summer as soon as you take a bite! Saturday's dinner consists of a very hearty, and yet healthy, meal. We simmered cattle bones for hours on end to make a very rich broth, and to it we added slices of beef. Along with the beef we have added cooked vegetables, which are sure to give you a boost in the chilly weather! Don't see something you like on the menu? As always, the Spinning Jenny is proud to serve our selection of pretzel bits, popped corns, and Pinedale Inspired Sausages. DISCLAIMER: * If you do not have a bowl or plate, there are merchants in town that will rent bowls. The Jenny is no longer renting out bowls, please be prepared. ** Please be aware that catering to special dietary needs is not a service of the Inn or Operations' Inn staff at Kingdoms of Novitas.

  3. Fish Fry

    Didn't mean this to happen /on/ the lake, moreso on the edge of it as the Fisherman and Piscean NPC wait for PC's
  4. Fish Fry

    What better way to soothe the winter stomach rumbles then going ice fishing? What better way to feed yourself then snagging the tasty bait off of a fisherman's hooks? Sure is awkward for both parties when a fisherman reels up a Piscean.
  5. Queen Bee Fight

    As someone who is very into bees, honey bees especially... What if there was a Buzzer Queen fight? Beehives rarely have more the one queen, and I imagine the same is true for the buzzers. Perhaps the old queen has passed away, leaving a group of younger ones fighting for her position. Or maybe there was an attempt to overthrow her, and a new, younger queen was raised in secret to overthrow her? PCs could attempt to settle this, maybe take bets on who will win, etc etc.
  6. November Spinning Jenny Menu

    Nailed smack-dab onto the previous month's menu, is the November Menu. The paper is relatively clean, although if touched it has an underlying greasy feeling that stains the clothes. None the less, the ink holds, and it reads: As October comes to a close, we look forward to the colder nights of November marked by snuggling by the fire with a glass of something warm! The Spinning Jenny is proud to offer a selection of hot foods, served in a relatively stab-free environment. And always, the Jenny is proud to serve fresh Sausage, popped corn and salted pretzel bits! As the season grows colder, we are also very excited to offer our specialty hot chocolate! Friday Evening will host a dish enjoyed by everyone, be it the Earthkins or even the Elves sleeping in the trees in the Great Forest. Our Macaroni and Cheese is sure to please, as it is made with our fresh pasta, along with an aromatic and gooey blend of cheeses hand-picked by our Tavern chefs!
  7. October Spinning Jenny Menu

    Scribbled underneath Saturday's second meal is the following: Afterwards we will be serving Chicken Jamblya Jumbalya Jambalaya. This dish truly puts the "Season" in "Seasonings", featuring delicate grains of rice, chicken, and spices from all over the known world!
  8. October Spinning Jenny Menu

    With last month's notice ripped off, a new one had been tacked onto the board. This one is relatively stain-free, but the paper is crumpled as if someone had put it in their pockets before delivering it to the board. It reads: The Weather outside might be chilling you to the bones, but the hearth at the Spinning Jenny is still piping hot! Come in today for some wonderful meals prepared by our kitchen staff! Or stop by for a quick snack- try one of our legendary Pinedale Sausages, Pinedale Popped Corns, or Pinedale Pretzels! Friday evening will be penne pasta served with a well-to-do tomato sauce. The sauce is enriched with the Spinning Jenny's special selection of grounded meats, and is sure to stave off the winter chill! Saturday morning's offerings are sure to be a crowd pleaser! We will be serving a beautiful quiche for the early-risers, and it sure is enough to get you started on your day! Hashbrowns, bacons and eggs join together into one wonderful dish! During dinner on Saturday, we will be serving a hearty meal. Potatoes that have been finely sliced are baked with rich cheeses and chopped onions. The Spinning Jenny is also serving succulent pork cutlets, and paired with the potatoes it is a meal so rich and savory that even a dragon will want to add it to his hoard! ** Please be aware that catering to special dietary needs is not a service of the Inn or Operations' Inn staff at Kingdoms of Novitas.

  9. Spinning Jenny Menu

    Tacked up to the opening of the Spinning Jenny is an advertisement of the Inn's offerings. Whoever wrote this had decent handwriting at best, and left a smudge of something yellow and crisp on the top of the paper where it had been held as the paper was nailed into the wall. The Spinning Jenny is delighted to offer the following meals, and encourages residents to take a break from the cold weather to warm up! Friday evening we will be serving freshly cooked pasta, joined with a rich tomato sauce with ground meat. From adventurers to even the Constables, this meal will give you enough energy and warmth to brave even the wilds of Maplewood! After that the Spinning Jenny will be offering a filling breakfast. You will find hashbrowns, hot biscuits and scrambled eggs waiting for you as you begin to settle into your day. We will then be serving a very familiar meal. Fresh chicken sliced and cooked with seasonings, before it is mixed within a batch of rice. A comfort food like no other, don't skip out on this cozy meal! If you find yourself feeling the chill later in the day, why not stop in to the Spinning Jenny for some pulled pork?
  10. Music Boxes

    ah ok, thank you deathwish
  11. dnd

    What edition do people play? Would there be interest for a campaign over Roll20?
  12. Music Boxes

    I think this is the right spot to ask this? I was wondering if crank-and-play music boxes were too advanced for the game, or if they're allowed. I did a forum search before I asked, but it didn't seem like it was being asked in this context?
  13. Hey! Although it might be a bit late to do this, I just wanted to stop by and say hello. It might be a bit until I'm actually physically present at Novitas, but I do lurk the boards a good deal to keep up on the misadventures of Maplewood. Some of you might know me through Dagorhir, I'm lookin' forward to returning to the game again! - Mellifera
  14. Howdy!

    Hello, it's wonderful to finally introduce myself to the people of Novitas. My name is Sarah, but you can call me by my Dag name, Mellifera. I run around mostly with the fine folk of Barenheim, and I've started playing some Pathfinder as well. I'm pretty fond of bees. If you are interested in getting into Beekeeping, I can probably answer any question you've got! :D Have a beautiful day, everyone!
