Kebab Pit (Encounter)

The Kebab Pit:
Knocking on the door you get no response. You wait for a little while and knock again, this time louder. Just as you’re about to walk away you hear raised voices inside the shop. A moment later the door is snatched open by a tired looking woman in her mid-forties.

[Darhanna:] “You’re a son of a bitch! This is my family’s place and you’ve just driven it into the ground! You can’t do this!”

[Terralis:] “Well the deals been made, so I think you’ll find I just did. Now get out you dried up old slag.”

The woman turns and almost walks right into you.

[Darhanna:] “What are you here for? You here to make sure I get out?”

Darhanna Dalesborn

  • Asked to speak to Terralis:
    [Darhanna:] “You can have the rat bastard. The only thing I want from him is my family’s business back!”
  • Asked about Terralis:
    [Darhanna:] “That greasy sleaze is my husband, for my sins. But trust me I’m all about fixing that!”

Terralis

  • Asked about Darhanna:
    [Terralis:] “Her? She’s my wife. She’s a little upset about my newest business venture.”
  • Asked about his business venture:
    [Terralis:] “I’m selling up here, jumped in with a nice little business. A gentlemen’s club down by the docks. The Pussycat club.”
