Consuming Icemint Vodka
Icemint Vodka is popular among socialites because it freshens the breath and takes the edge off. Consuming a shot or more of the drink, which smells and tastes of spearmint, grants advantage on rolls made to interact with socialites in a social setting (such as performance rolls to make a speech, deception rolls to pass off a cover story and a fake invitation, or persuasion rolls to convince an individual to agree to something reasonable). Outside of high society, there are usually no benefits.
A Story From the Frontier
Today’s story comes from Eastbrook. Seemingly overnight, a circle of standing stones has been erected there, with a cavernous opening at its center; thus far, none have dared venture inside, claiming that a strange sense of foreboding overtakes them when they attempt to do so. The circle certainly appears magical in origin; strange glyphs and runes are to be found at any point upon it, and a peculiar hum permeates the air.
