An Adventurer Walks Into a Tavern...

Stop me if you've heard this one.


1.  Your character is in a tavern for whatever reason.
2.  Something interesting happens.

Fenris does not look subtle no matter where he goes or what he does - he was made to be shown off, not to go unseen - so generally he scarcely even tries. Danarius is dead and now he is the hunter, not the hunted: he delights in how slavers flee in the face of rumors of his presence, the elf with lyrium in his skin.

But tonight he is making his pathetic attempt at blending in, with a hood drawn up over his distinctively white hair, because he has come to Skyhold uninvited. How not, though? There had been such a big, ugly, magical hole in the sky and even when it was gone whispers of Corypheus had spilled down out of the mountains.

All was going fairly well for mission sneak in and eavesdrop on some demon-related gossip, until the comically large greatsword strapped across his back catches the fabric of one tavern maid's dress when she tries to stride purposefully by, causing her to trip and dump a whole platter full of ale steins over his head as well as and the heads of anyone sitting at either of the two tables next to his own. For good measure, she'd even grabbed at the excess fabric of his cloak on the way down in a last ditch effort to remain upright, yanking the hood off and almost strangling him for a moment before the ties give way and snap and the whole thing just falls on top of her in a big, undignified lump. "Fasta vass," he splutters loudly, dripping and suddenly ill-tempered (as though it hadn't been mostly his own fault.)

Someone better step in, because he does genuinely look like he might start throttling her as she tries to stand back up. "What is the meaning of this?" Surely he's been caught! Doing absolutely nothing. (Old paranoias die hard.)
