We at the Dead Sea Almanac are pleased to offer on Thursdays this week’s featured beverage, starting with our world-famous Five-Dragon Mead! Made with the brewing talents of five of the nation’s famous magical brewers, and featuring a searing sensation worthy of any dragon, this spicy beverage burns like scotch on the way down and like fire on the way back up! (Just kidding – most people can keep it down.) Experience the original five-alarm fire with this hotter-than-hot mead, or take the sweet way out with our Five-Dragon Honeyed Mead, which has all the same fire but with the cooling sweetness of honey and a hint of cinnamon! Available in bottle, stein, and keg sizes. Get yours while supplies last!
|Bottle||4 Servings||12 SP|
|Stein||16 Servings||38 SP|
|Keg||48 Servings||10 GP|
Consuming Five-Dragon Mead
Five-Dragon Mead is a punch in the gut for those who aren’t expecting it. Any creature not accustomed to the sensation must make a DC 12 Constitution save when consuming the liquor; on a failure, they need the privy immediately, which may open certain paths of progress to the players.
A Story From the Frontier
This week’s story comes to us from far across the distant sea. It is said that of late sailors have become more and more wary of the water, which is said to harbor ancient and powerful beasts which can undo a mortal man, of nature both leviathan and human-like. There is tell that one such leviathan has stirred – a kraken now held responsible for the sinking of three ships and the deaths of fifty-three men. As a result, goods from the orient are now priced at as much as fifty per-cent mark up; such a situation is regrettable and reflected in our own prices, though we would of course be glad to any adventurer that could slay such a beast, as would the entire Tradesmen’s Guild, which posts a bounty of eight hundred crown for proof of the beast’s death and delivery to the Scientific Institute.
