The Innkeep, Jade Sapbrew, is not the greatest or wisest Brewmaster in Pandaria. Her brew is neither the strongest, nor the tastiest. But it is the most unique brew, in that it uses the Amber of the Kypari tree to make it sweet as sin to the taste. This keeps the Mantid, who would normally be against an inn inside one of their sacred Kypari trees, docile and civil, even in this time of war.
Besides Pandaren and the occasional Mantid, Yaungol, Jinyu, Hozen, and Grummles also occupy the bar, each being constantly reminded to keep the others alone.
On this particular day, Jade was rather annoyed. She had been gaining rather low custom, and hadn't had a good chat in ages. And when you live in the forsaken home of the Mantid, a good conversation is a remedy for the anxiety and boredom you often suffer.
She looked around, seeing only the two very drunk, barely-concious Hozen she served earlier, and a very large, very quiet Yaungol who had yet to order a drink. These were not creatures of conversation.
She sighed, mentally preparing herself for another day of disappointment and re-washing already clean mugs to keep her mind off of what she actually felt.
She had not been in the Dread wastes long, and she did not plan on staying long. The creatures here were vicious beyond her ability, and the herb she sought was scarce and rarely unmolested by the local fauna.
When a battalion of Mantid soldier flew overhead, it was all she could do not to scream and run, but she knew better, and she stayed hidden, blanketed in shadow.
Then she saw it, a beautiful, shining Lotus, right next to one of those trees; the big ones, that the Mantid love so much. She finally had one, "This will make a fine potion" she thought, but then she noticed something. A door, carved into one of the exposed roots of the tree. It wasn't Mantid looking in architecture, but she approached tentatively. When she reached it, she paused.
She had never been anywhere as dangerous as Pandaria, she had never done anything as terrifying as fight and hide from the Mantid. But she couldn't just leave, and so she let her curiosity get the best of her. Pushing the door open, she entered... slowly.
She nearly dropped the glass to the floor when the Elf woman walked in. She was lost for words.
"Uh, w-welcome! Can I... get you a, um, drink? We don't see many of your kind around here, or um, I don't. You're one of the 'Hordes' right? All you new Allied and Horded people around here make things so... different! What's your story frie...Customer?"
She poured a mug of her finest ale and readied herself to give it to the new woman.
"If she doesn't stay and chat I'm going to die." she thought.
