The Motivation Into Greatness
The waterfront curves around quite a lot of the island. Away from the bustle of the main pier, in a part of town farther down the coast, is the Tackle Biscuit, where ordinary fishermen as well as those seeking things a bit more reasonably priced and local. The beer is cheap, the liquor is homebrew, and the food is simple. The proprietor is an ancient old halfling woman (Deree Sunnymeadow), whose family was shipwrecked here years ago. Her son generally tends bar now, and one of her unmarried daughters tends the food side of things. It is a small family business, for certain. The proprietor generally does not do much other than chat at the bar with the various customers. Her son Baris is lame, and would never have made an effective fisherman. But he does garden, doing what he can, and he runs the bar at night. Her daughter Mel is rather homely, but is an excellent cook. They have never been choosy about the sort of clientèle that visit, and cater to both the big and the small set. The building itself is small, and the inside is cozy. But regulars don’t mind.
