Water bag icer gut! A nervous sausage bag ice! comes from the kitchen as the bat adds yet more hotroot to the yak soup. Turns out to be talking to Loris from Cul de Sac, who is zooming out of her hair ties as usual rustling up some meadowcream to cool les gueules de ceux qui craignent le pilipili.

Nothing like twice-hot (temp and spice) soup on a cold evening, eh?

The snow outside is turning to sleet, d'après the sounds against the windows. Hope the twigs on the branches on the boughs on the trees in the holes (and the holes in the ground) are ok for the gnats on the feathers on the wings of the birds in the nests thereupon!

One of Loris' hairtie rubber bands sproings towards the soup, but out of nowhere, a rapier flashes and deftly wings it back to Loris.

-Thanks! I am forever running -
-Yeah, we noticed, from the bat
- out of those, from Loris, with a sideeye upwards at the bat.

Faint applause is heard from the local contortionist.

The bat is now filling a row of bowls with fresh spinach, and setting out pistachios, almonds, and, with a grinning thankyou aside to Loris, the meadowcream, for the pilipili pityparty people. A couple of ladles of the soup just wilts the spinach and cools the soup from lava to still-hot-enough-at-the-end-if-you-eat-fast-enough-to-risk-innercineration.

An old woman grabs buttered crumpets and starts dipping.

An Ivorian, slightly ashamed of his Afcon keeper [allez, les zéléphants, du zèle !] and with one sock noticeably stretched out grabs some extra hotroot and doesn't even sneer at those running for extra meadowcream, eyes bleeding,

A tentacle snakes in, encircles a bowl, and slowly drags it out, without spillling anything. A rapier from somewhere flicks pistachios into the passing bowl, and another tentacle makes an elegant and grateful leg.

The bat sees that it is time to grab a bowl themself before it's all gone! Foregoing the meadowcream and scooping mostly broth, they grab the bowl with their feet and wing off to the table where the old lady had extra crumpets.

Just as well you didn't need the meadowcream, comments the Ivorian, it would have looked like-
-So! How about this storm? interrupts a squeamish Loris from the next table over.

-Whatcha guano doo? asks the rapier wit, foiling the attempt to keep the dinner conversation from dégringoler-ing into the gutter...

This *is* the Tavern, after all.

With a swish of their under-powered wand, the squib transforms the thread from Christmas Tavern 2021 to New Year's Tavern 2022. They walk quietly away with a dribble of green jelly plopping from the wand's end. At the edge of the property, the wand is deployed one more time to fill the horse trough outside the Tavern with a green jello starter kit.

Various compliments are scrawled on the outhouse's inside walls... One says, in ASL, Stokoe was a genius.

Another reads, in English: Houston, be advised: Rich Purnell is a steely-eyed missile man.

One in German was written in the old calligraphy but the ink has run, over the years, and over the knotholes, making it hard to decipher. There might be a reference to a Biergarten...

Something appears to have been painted by a drunken squid using multiple tentacles.

The Klingon one is too profane to list here. And that is saying a lot.

There are cartoons of famous people lining up around the bar. A voice from outside says Hey, it's Mohamed, can I join the party? and the bartender hollers No! And put some clothes on!

A thief runs, pantless and panting, into the night...

Could you deliver the dishonoring note to Lord Krawl?
General Corvo says "I can't deliver it because he knows I know you, perhaps that bat could do it"
(Giving the note to Lord Krawl will trigger the penultimte task in the "Pendleton's Note" side objective knowing if Corvo fails to deliver the letter, Pendleton will disclose his mistress and reveal that he likened the face of Lord Krawl's wife to that of a plague rat.)-
"you're right, the batitis" he says
The problem is he's not a homing bat.
That leaves the Wombat.
Do you have any tape to hold the note to its forehead.
It won't stick to fur
Furget it, Pendleton is an ass anyway. Crumpet?
OK...maybe we could mail it...

"Scale model" in that it fits indoors. Inside the kitchen, near the back door.

The bald mouse, being well-padded, is fine, but will not say no to a large decaf Irish whiskey, no Baileys, no mint, yes whipped cream!

The glass is about the same size as the bat, and *piping* hot. Really. The steam sounds like bagpipes. Impressed, and having been to both Draco's Tavern *and* the Long Spoon, la chauve-souris, avec courage, entame sa boisson. Irish coffee has to be drunk while still hot all the way down. The bat *has* to be drunk after that, and in fact will be drunkenly alert for hours.

Now, it's the bat that sounds like bagpipes, on every exhale, but, too drunk to figure out why the bloody piper never seems to finish a song, is trying to shout requests over the sound of the pipes. This does not go well for the bat, but since all the shouting and, in fact, all the piping, has been in too high a register for the Squid, or most of the adult humans, to register, not many notice anything much.

A bat head down in a nice warm freshly-enptied hot whiskey glass is no unusual sight on *this* bar, after all.

Eventually, the glass cools, and the bat extricates themself and lands upright, wearing a dashing melty whipped-cream beret. The pipes stopped when the steam ran out, so the bat whirls back off above the dance floor, scattering off-white blobs immediately mistaken for guano.

That doesn't go so well for the bat, either...

The old lady (in rather a bossy mood, using her retired teacher voice) stands up and orders everyone back to their seats. "Now, anyone who is caught turning off the heating will lose their playtime and stand in the corner. The monitors will fetch more wood and stoke up the fire. Everyone take out your Singing Together songbooks from your desks and we will sing all the songs from page one onwards!"
She toddles over the to upright piano and starts to bash out the accompaniment (rather difficult, because she's munching on a buttered crumpet while playing).
