  1. Spinning Jenny June Menu

    As the merry month of June sets upon us, the Spinning Jenny is proud to announce that we will be hosting a burger bar this Saturday afternoon! There will be fresh patties for each resident and visitor of Maplewood, and we encourage you to walk on down and build a burger with your companions. [[The Spinning Jenny will be offering the typical Saturday morning food, the egg casserole. Third shift we will be offering a build a burger bar, and there will be enough burgers for each PC and NPC to have ONE burger.]] DISCLAIMER: * If you do not have a bowl or plate, there are merchants in town that will rent bowls. ** Please be aware that catering to special dietary needs is not a service of the Inn or Operations' Inn staff at Kingdoms of Novitas. While players will occasionally go out of their way to provide alternatives, it is not something we can do on a regular basis. Players with special dietary preferences should always come to events prepared to feed themselves with the appropriate foods. If you have any serious or life-threatening allergies please let the inn keeper know so we don’t serve you something that will send you to the hospital.
  2. Breakfast!

    Nailed onto the beams of the Merchant's Bazaar, a few trees in Northtown, and even near the Jenny is the following flyer: Good afternoon, morning or night- I've come to bring you a daytime delight! Saturday morning in June, I will be serving freshly prepared breakfast sandwiches. These sandwiches will be the perfect way to start your day- with the eggs and meat, they will be perfect for long-term energy, while the soft, buttery bread gives you that needed boost in the morning. Conditions permitting, I will be offering cups of juice that you can purchase- don't have a cup? That's fine, as I will also be offering bowls and cups to rent, and also to purchase. As always, there will be sweets offered. I will be offering chocolate-cinnamon chip cookies for sale, a coin a piece. I hope to see the familiar faces of Maplewood, regardless of what the Elemental has decided to bless us with that particular Saturday. [OOG: Second shift I will be serving hot sandwiches! They'll be meat, egg and cheese. Haven't decided what kind of meat yet, it is a contest between bacon and pork roll. We'll be selling/renting bowls/dishes/cups if you need them also, and if I do get juice, it will probably be of the orange variety.]]
  3. April Spinning Jenny Menu

    It looked like someone personally decided to clean off the notice board. The typical foodstains have been scrubbed off and even the wood itself looks a bit shiny. The menu is pinned smack in the middle of the board, and unlike months past, is clearly more legible. It reads: Are those flowers, blooming along the pathway? Is that a warm breeze sailing through the trees? Spring has begun its slow return in Maplewood, and we hope you can come celebrate at the Spinning Jenny! Friday evening we will be serving a particularly interesting dish of a new caliber. We will be serving a ham dinner! Beautiful slabs of ham, served alongside corn and baked potatoes sourced directly from the mountains of Terra! Not a lot can grow in those rocky soils- but the potatoes from there are the best! Saturday Morning we will be serving a long-time favorite- a hearty egg pie. We thin-sliced potatoes, bacon and cheese, and add them to an egg-based mixture to make a nutritious, filling way to start your day! Saturday Afternoon- you'll be thinking its fall again, because we'll be serving turkey sandwiches! Also ham sandwiches, potentially. Alongside the sandwiches we will be serving a refreshing pasta salad- don't wait, hurry on over to get yourself some of this tasty treat! Saturday Evening, we are finishing up what is bound to be a cold night with hot bowls of chili. Bring your friends to the Spinning Jenny, enjoy a hot bowl of chili, and recount your plentiful adventures.

  4. February Tavern Menu

    A new menu is posted for the tavern. This one is typically cleaner then the other ones from months gone by, but it still has that characteristic messiness as some of the ink is smeared. Winter has not left Maplewood yet, and it is a time to celebrate how this chilly time of year brings us together as a town. Friday night we will be serving Penne Alfredo, a pale, rich cream sauce mixed with in-house mixed and cut penne pasta. Saturday morning we will be serving our typical fare, a hearty egg pie. We thin-sliced potatoes, bacon and cheese, adding them into the pie to make a very tasty way to start your day. Saturday afternoon we will be warming the bellies and tongues by serving chicken fajitas! Come see if you can handle the spices we blended just for this delicious winter dish!

  5. A Nip in the Air

    Winter had come to Maplewood, dumping all too giving amounts of snow on just about every nook and cranny the harsh winds could find their way through. They scattered snow up the trunks of still-green pines, dusted pathways white, and much to Malachi's annoyance, dumped it in her boots and soaked more then just the fringes of her wool dress. She was loathe to stop her trek in Potato Town, of all places, where Ice Elementals and Boglurkers tended to hang out, but she needed her toes. Scraping snow off one of the logs surrounding the firepit, Malachi set her basket upon it as she set about to find some dry wood. There wasn't much to be found, between the falling sun and the snow. What she did find eventually was a particularly heavy pine, needles encased in ice. It was there was she able to slip underneath the barrier and collect mostly dead, dry lower branches. It wasn't the best wood, she knew Pine didn't make the best for cooking, but for warmth? It would have to do for now, and could at least prepare wetter logs for burning. She wasn't sure who kept the pile stocked- probably the Templars, their temple was right there after all. Right next to the little shrine of Draconus. Malachi couldn't help but frown to herself as she returned to where her basket sat on the log, kicking snow out of the firepit so she could lay the branches down. "Let's get a little thing going here.." From the basket came out a blob. It was reddish, much like the Earthkin's wool dress, and fuzzy. She rolled it about her fingertips and palms, kneeling by her collection of dry wood and setting it right before it. And silently, in the growing night, came light. Malachi ran her knife along the edge of the flint, sending a few glowing sparks into the fuzzy wad. The first few caught the earth and died, but finally one began to grow and swell within the fuzz. She gently lifted it up, blowing on it as her hands went to work snapping little bits of wood from the sticks. She fed the growing spark, now sending smoke and light as it consumed the little twigs offered to it. She assembled it a decent enough house as it grew, lining the smaller sticks up first, then the bigger ones in a rather pyramid-esque shape. From the woodpile, she grabbed two logs, setting them beside the growing fire to dry.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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.

  14. 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?
