House Rules

(Posted on the front door)

  • Absolutely no weapons in the main hall. All weapons must be stored in cubbies in the foyer. See a staff member for keys.
  • Brawling is strictly prohibited in the main hall. Please keep altercations to the yard.
  • No pets allowed in the main hall, unless they are good mousers.
  • Tabs may be settled at the end of your visit.

OOC Code of Conduct

  • Be courteous and kind to all your fellow RPers. If your character is rude or disruptive by nature, we encourage you to give others a heads up OOC via /tell so they know what to expect.
  • The Broken Cask is a heavy RP tavern. This means you must be in character at all times! If you have something OOC to say, please keep it to tells, or mark it as OOC by using parentheses, etc.
  • If a staff member (anyone wearing the Broken Cask kinship tag) asks you to do something OOC, you must comply or you may be asked to leave.
  • Please do not spam in /say or /emote. The Cask can get very crowded, and it's hard enough for RPers to follow their own conversations as is!


Today's Menu (MM.DD.YYYY)


With a side of stuff


Drink List

House Golden Ale — Light and sweet, this honey-colored ale is a regular favorite, so much so that a giant cask of it is always kept brimming in the main hall. Guests are welcome to help themselves to a tankard (or two, or three…)

Dragon-heart — Considered the king of wines in the Westfold. A smooth, rich, and powerful red wine with notes of hay and woodsmoke.

Saermelui — Named by one of The Cask's most frequent elven patrons, this dry, bittersweet red wine is true to its name. Light and powerful at once.

Scholar's Red — Rich and oakey with a hint of cranberry, this complex wine is a favorite amongst patrons seeking a drink with sophisticated flavor.

Swan-feather — A pale white wine with a sweet, fruity flavor. An imitation of the wine with the same name made in Dol Amroth's legendary vineyards.

Boronbereth's Autumn Leaf — A whimsical golden white wine popular because of its warm, spicy flavours of clove and cinnamon.

Axe-maid Stout — A strong, dark and bitter dwarven stout. Named for Synnova Aethewyn of Dale, the first patron with a gut strong enough to handle the stuff.

Bolger's Lager — A warm, cheerful malted beer lovingly brewed by Alfiric "Papa" Bolger of Bywater. More discerning palates might notice a distinct nutty, cheesy flavor underneath the malt.

Bubble and Buzz — A thick, complexly-flavored honeymead brewed exclusively for The Cask.

Applejack — A strong hard cider made with mulling spices. A favorite winter brew said to have a smell much like that of a snowy evening.

Ashmead's Pride — A mysterious hard cider of unknown origin, masterfully crafted to be the perfect blend of rich and delicate. Tart, with a smokey aftertaste that lingers like soft fire on the tongue.

Tumbledown — There is a brew so sweet and brown. The locals call it "Tumbledown." An that's because that's what you'll do… Right after you have had a few!
