Cocktail Hour

Drinks inspired by tavern-goers of the Dark Roads Saga

Well met, Wayfarers.

If anyone knows the best drink to wind down with at the end of a long road, it's frontier travelers and wilderness walkers like the men and women of Geiral in the Dark Roads Saga.  From the hometown of runeweaver Serenity Walker, we bring you the favorites of heroes and desperadoes.

First, a smooth blend for a fine night in front of the fire, for any home-grown hero.
