How to use The Front Desk

The Front Desk




Thematic Music

That service is the noblest which is rendered for its own sake.

The Curator is an eerie individual that appears harmless enough and helpful, but in a way that makes him seem secretly manipulative and suspicious. As such rumors exist in the pub that he is an intensely devious and conniving oracle of sorts. None to speak of in the inn trust him, despite the fact that he has maintained his post for many years without report of incident.

I'd like to "rent a room" for the storyteller, at the minimum 1 week/1 EM rate. It's just written by me as part of Cromius Felt's story, so I don't actually need a private room thread.

This post and the ones just above it, from the Quick Q&A thread last spring, gave me the impression that you do need to rent a room.

I figured you had to to make it fair, so writing a fanfic doesn't get you more EMs and EXP than doing freeform roleplaying.

But, now that I think about it, that raises a question of whether a 4000 word extended background should require two room rentals...

No one is good, we'll get your room rental and have it set up for you asap. Please rent the room IC like you would otherwise and I'll follow the links an get the room charged to your character sheet.

Cromius Felt The Mysterium

 

On his way to what he hopes is the beginning of an adventure, Cromius decides he needs to leave some sort of message for his father. He hears the storyteller, Morthos the Wise, telling stories of how other people came to Eternity's End, and an idea hits him. I'll tell Morthos my story, he thinks. If my father comes through here, he'll hear the story and know I was here!

Cromius approaches the Curator. "I would like to rent a room, so I can stay here long enough to share my story with Morthos, the Storyteller." He offers the Curator a single Eternity Mote.

After the transaction is complete, Cromius continues heading towards Room 998, curious how he can help Cookie's friend.

OOCIs this the proper way to rent a room? There weren't any examples, so I made something up.

Nope that's great, very nicely done Renting a room with Morthos to share your story sounds like a great way to do this.

The Curator

Very well young scribe, this key shall take you to a safe place where you may speak with Morthos... enjoy your stay here at Eternity's End...

There was something a bit menacing about the way he spoke, but also strangely inviting...

transaction complete

Sazlowe Gaxx, of the Mysterium

A short cloud of smoke and feathers cleared its throat at the front desk, the eyes barely above the edge of the table.

"I would like to rent a room please. I suppose I'm going to be here for an eternity, but I'll start with a month's rental."

Salman Stormcloak the Ascendant

Salman walks up to the front desk, and places a piece of paper on the table along with a single eternity mote. In a long, elegant script, the note reads: May I please have a room for one week?
