Guildereim Society Bar and Eatery Menu

So you're a patron of the Tether, What happens next?

You could be a visitor, a traveller, a nomad or even a resident. Anyone toting a pouch of coins received with a warm welcome upon arriving on the island. Patrons are greeted by house servants upon entering the grand Main Hall for trade and, for a small fee, are waited upon every hour of the day or night. Outside of the main hall patrons can enjoy the Tether's groomed gardens, the beach, the bar and any of the many lounges found tucked away throughout the establishment's interiors. Stage shows and gruesome arena fights are put on frequently for the entertainment of the patrons.

Here you will find resources and information pertaining to the free-walking, slave-buying population of the island. Be sure you read the Code of Conduct for Patrons of the Golden Tether.

The Tether is the ONLY formal law in Guildereim. Everything else is survival of the fittest. Most laws can be found here. However, it is well known slaves have no rights, and that causing problems for the Tether staff is the quickest way off the island.

Transportation

The only way on to the Islands of Guilderiem is by boat. There are ships which fly The Golden Tether's colours and emblem that are specifically for transporting patrons and visitors. These are luxury ships designed to make the patrons travel to The Golden Tether as comfortable as possible. Economy class, for those on the poor side are available. Some who are unable to pay the ticket prices may be hired temporarily on the ship. Stow-aways are rare, but when found are punished or quite possibly, thrown over board. The ships dock at in very large cave, as The Golden Tether is built into a mountain side. For those that have privately owned ships, there are docking fees depending upon the length of stay.



Lodging and Housing

Rooms are available to rent in The Golden Tether, prices vary depending upon the quality of the room, and the time they are rented for. Private land is available for purchase, though it is up to the buyer to build their own homes. Some homes are available to rent on the main islands.

YEARLY EVENTS

Golden Hearts Anniversary Ball - This event commemorates TGT's anniversary and is held on February 14 of each year. As of February 14, 2010, TGT was five years old. The celebrations for this are usually dancing, food, kissing booths, and other soft and cuddly festivities.

Hua-Hashi - One day every April, Lizardfolk in conjunction with TGT staff and adventure-minded patrons go out into the Naga nesting grounds and destroy eggs so that the naga don't become too numerous and consume all of the Kaoi'e in the process. The week after this event, it is customary for naga eggs to be used in many food dishes.

Fairy Migration - From the middle of July to the end of August, random happenings occur around the Tether. Magical flares potentially disturb some people's ability to control their magics, food has been known to rain from the ceiling, and statues have been known to come to life. This sudden surge in magical energy draws pixie-like creatures to the island who swoop in and steal shiny things from patrons to put in their nests. Eating or killing the pixies has is a bad idea as they have proven to be quite toxic upon their death. After the mating and delivering of offspring into their nests, the pixies die off near the end of August. The first migration occurred in July 2010 and it's unknown why the flares began, but The Golden Tether has taken steps to ready itself for the next magical upset on the island.



MEALS AND REFRESHMENTS

The Golden Tether has a fully equipped bar and kitchen to meet your needs. Meals and drinks can be ordered at the bar or it can be delivered to your room. The bar is opened at every hour and offers a rather eclectic menu, from food to drinks.

Please note, seafood is in an abundance due to the establishment being on the island. Red meat, specifically beef, is considered a delicacy. It is more expensive due to the island not being fit for livestock and must be shipped in at great expense.
OOC: Sometimes there is no one tending to the bar so a NPC (Non Player Character) by the name of Evelyn will be tending the bar.

    The Dirty Mistress. 4
    Said to taste very much like the unmentionables of a yeti, this is the last resort if you really want to get wasted. It'll burn on the way down, burn on the way up, and burn on the way out, so choose wisely in deciding if this is the drink for you. There are two options, clear and amber, so pick your poison.
    (OOC Note: When drinking the Dirty Mistress you must roll a 1d4. 1=Immediately sick, you may need a bucket or chamber pot. 2=Minor hallucinations for half an hour. 3=Immediately passing out. 4=Incredibly drunk.)

    The Rotten Scoundrel. 7
    Cream liqueur chased by lime juice, taken in quick succession.

    The Gentleman. 7
    Glennfiddich, neat.

    Duchess de Bourgogne. 1
    Sweet and sultry red wine.

    Mulled wine. 8
    Prepared from red wine, heated and spiced with cinnamon sticks, vanilla pods, cloves, citrus and sugar.

    Chteau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac. 8
    Remarkably dark, it sports mineral aromas of mint and black currant. Flavorful, its texture is silky and lingers in the mouth.

    The Romane Conti. 7
    Smells of berries, spices and leather. Dark in color, it hints at flavors of soy sauce, flowers and licorice. The aroma is rich and penetrating without being too profound.

    The Blind Pig. 5
    Rumored to be the Dirty Mistress' cleaner counterpart, the Blind Pig is smooth, vinous, and cidery, with a slightly sour aftertaste. (Peche lambic.) After the Dirty Mistress, this is one of the strongest drinks on the Tether's menu.

    Krakens Blood. 6
    Served as a shot. Aged krakens blood mixed with a shot of the Blind Pig. The blood is thick and slides down like oil, heavily salty in taste. It seems to counter the horrible hang-over one may receive from the Blind Pig.

    Goblin Brain Hemorrhage. 7
    This rather fruity shot is a contradiction of taste and looks. Half a shot of peach schnapps starts off the drink, followed by a quarter shot of irish cream. The whole thing is topped off with blue curaco and grenadine to give the whole thing a rather fearsome look.

    Green Dragon. 1
    This is a murky green shot of cannabis-infused vodka. It may take anywhere from 40 - 60 minutes to take full effect; a potent sativa high laced with drunken mirth that will last three to five hours. .

The Cast Iron Menu

(3 to 10)

    Rock Lobster
    Two pounds of succulent flesh from the fabled rock lobster, only found around a particular obscure island of mages where the discarded potions and arcane bleed-offs have grown them to unforeseen sizes. Such delicate meat is only for the boldest, or stupidest of hunters to harvest due to those thick shells and massive claws. Served with a side of fresh sea scallops topped with caviar. It is the creme De la creme of expensive dishes, meant for those that have money to flaunt it out and claim their proper place in the social ladder, despite the intoxicating and addictive effects of imbibing in the flesh of such a creature. It is a test within a test, for being unable to conquer such addictive properties would ultimately end in financial ruin to most.

    Unicorn Haggis
    A decadent, nutty tasting dish containing unicorn's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and simmered in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours. Sausage or pudding form available by request.
