== TAVERNS ============================================== Updated: 03/02/2001 ==
The TerraFirmA taverns.
TerraFirmA presents a whole new look to Taverns! There are many
bars around TerraFirmA where you can buy drinks, chat to Bards
and socialise in a safe and relaxing environment.
The administration are in the process of revamping all the bars and turning
them into fully functioning taverns. The Turfe Taverne was the first of the
existing bars to receive this overhaul, and others are also being added to
in this way. There are many new and exciting features to be found in the
taverns right now, features which will be expanded on in future versions.
The main features of the tavern are:
Linked Rooms Traditionally all locations are entirely separate and
distinct from one another. In a tavern environment, the
different locations used to describe one room (the bar)
are linked. This means says and movement between the
different locations of the bar are overheard and seen by
the people in adjacent linked locations. For example, in
the Turfe Taverne, anything said by someone in the main
part of the bar will be overheard by people standing by
the fireplace to the south.
Order Players may order drinks from the bar staff (from The
Barman in the Turfe Taverne), from a list that can be seen
at the bar (see ORDER).
Interactivity Mobiles within the tavern have a new, increased level of
awareness and interactivity. As well as a Barman or other
character from whom drinks may be ordered, taverns may
have one or more other characters each with their own
The Wench She will move between through the bar cleaning up as she
goes. Any items she picks up will be placed into a lost
property chest, located by the fireplace in the Turfe
Taverne. Not every inn has a wench this busy though!
The Doorman The main job of a Doorman is to eject abusive or light
fingered people from the bar area. He will also refuse
entry into the main bar to any person that has been barred.
In inns without their own Doorman, another TerraFirmA
Police Mobile will do these tasks.
Note: If you are barred from a tavern, you will remain
barred from the main bar areas in all taverns until the
next reset; you will, however, still have access to the
boards and the vortex in the Turfe Taverne.
The Bard The Bard can also be found in the Turfe Taverne, and is
available to give out hints on specific quests or general
game features (see INFO HINTS and INFO HINTNUM).
