It's Stax! Stax has arrived in your bar! After practically breaking down your previously locked door (you suppose it must have happened automatically?) he stumbles over to the counter, seemingly surprised that you're here. His ball-of-gas form is familiar! He spent a little over two thirds of yesterday hanging around, causing ruckus and trying his best to support you in his own rather unhelpful way. But he's back, with a lot of enthusiasm.

Well, there it is! Your first order of the day. It seems pretty open, so you think you're gonna knock this one outta the park.

Gotta start strong, Greene.

You've got two helpful panels still at the bottom here. The Cabinet is a great resource for finding ingredients that already exist in the YWUNIVERSE, and the Lineup is great for reading up on the many wacky folks prowling around. They're a constantly changing jumble of information, so don't be afraid to check up on it with every new addition!

RE: You Wake Up In A Bar
nothing intoxicating, it's far too early for that. molten vacuum as a base, suspending a small ball of dark matter. eye-of-the-lemon juice for bite. inner tongue's wishes for flavor. cut with regular cow milk from earth, which is not this world, for nutrition. to compensate for the attendant mildness, instead of a superfluous lemon, a "sliding cayenne" will be orbiting on the rim, dispensing its juices. for visual effect, a pinch of The Long-Lost Spirit Of Old School Rock And Roll. for texture and color, frozen plutonium. this is shaping up into a heavy drink, so let's lighten it with active christmas tree string lights. shake poorly before serving, lest you upset the unstable compounds. whipped deodorant shavings as decoration. and of course, green onion stalks for straws.

side dish: unsugar cookie, no plate. we need this guy CALM today, and we need something simple to contrast the complexity above. he can use it to dip if he likes.

well i was going to go against a whole lot of this
but Stax is literally a star and they've said they can consume almost anything
maybe just go a bit easy on the more abstract ingredients, since their effects tend to be harder to predict? maybe it could do without the inner tongue's wishes and The Long-Lost Spirit Of Old School Rock And Roll.

Gotta start strong, Greene.

You have known Stax for one year. You have known this bar and all its little quirks for one year. Two growths of your existence have been comprised of this place and time, even if the people around you do not yet realize it. Life is in standstill until you move, and for a little while now, you've not been in control at all, have you?

The world shifts back into focus. Terrats, in all its sunny emptiness, shifts back into focus. You're still here.

You're still here.

Gotta start strong, Greene. You begin preparing the starman's drink in all its complicated, messy glory, with two slowly-steadying hands. The glare coming in through the dusty windows is fueling you once more, and everything is beginning to make sense again.

With that relatively settled, you decide a good way to cap things off would be to serve Stax his drink, at last! You can't resist a grin as you place his swirling mass of colors in front of him, complete with green onion stalk straws.

As he leans forth to begin enjoying his new drink, glowing a bit with noticeable happiness, you hear the door to the Starwood Bough slowly peel open-- and the figure of a rather awkward gun-person saunters forth! With both of its eyes plastered on one side, it uncomfortably shifts the barrel of itself around, aiming wildly at you and Stax before standing perpendicular, trying to get a good view.

Thanks to your extensive work on the Shaken Starred, you have a wealth of wondrous and wacky ingredients at your disposal, with new information given about each of them. This information can be found in the Cabinet, and this Cabinet would be a great place to find existing ingredients for use in Clippy Butagun's order, as well as creating new ones!

Speaking of Clippy Butagun, this elusive character can be referenced later in the Lineup, a place to find information and bios on characters without having to search through YWUIAB.

RE: You Wake Up In A Bar
it's time for our first ever Second Try at a specific drink. let's go back Into That Foggy Night, but with hyperdrink like that fucker said, and also add some melon tones in
Quote
RE: You Wake Up In A Bar
Hmm. So Clippy likes "Flux"-y things, which I'm assuming would be things that move around a bunch. So by including lots of things to do with standing still or being slow, we can calm it down in two ways -- by including things it doesn't like, and by directly slowing it down.

Matterhorn chunks, honey, and caramel would be a good start, but it's a shame we don't have anymore Gonit milk, molasses, or Chloral Hydride. It's tempting to say, combine Urgency and Antipodal Shards, but both of those could be described as "helper chemicals" since they work to modify other properties.

A fresh dawn, with a fresh start.
I've no specific recipe suggestions for our customer, beyond one ingredient being Bartender's Choice, but I do have one for the Bartender's personal cabinet.

Barkeep's #2 Knockout Special Wrote:(1) Whipped Dream (Diluted)
(1) Fractal Apple Cider
(1) Asuralchohol
(1) Honey
(1) Cinnamon Stick

Pour the honey, asuralchohol, and fractal apple cider in roughly equal amounts. Add a drop of whipped dream, stir vigourously with the cinnamon stick, crumble the stick into the beverage.

With no hesitation, you immediately set to the task of fulfilling Clippy's order and getting this day started off on the right foot! This particular patron seems like it's another minefield you'll have to navigate around to avoid exciting or upsetting it, and you get the idea to use last night's recipe for just that purpose.

You start getting things going-- with largely a different ingredient set, but overall the same flavors and textures. Something with a lot of variety, but fruity and sweet tones. Having some 'flux chemicals' in the form of shaved matterhorn also seems like a pretty great idea!

The main ingredient that the mysterious voice told you about, krokoan hyperdrink, seems especially heavy and brightly-glowing, but you manage to find a small canister in the very back of your bar.

Stax suddenly lights up like a star! Well, more of a star than usual.

[Image: 1B0kC66.png]
[Image: LhwOMs7.png]

Clippy Butagun swivels interestedly in the chair, hammer ominously clicking back and forth.

(You silently reflect on the fact that you weren't particularly given a choice. Clippy just came into your life all-of-a-sudden!)

The drink finally comes out after you slap a sticky-note face on the front, to assure Clippy of the cup's contentedness. It need not any sort of prodding or assistance-- it's a perfectly happy substance!

[Image: HTYIZB3.png]

Perfectionist activates-- you have gained an infinite supply of "Krokoan Hyperdrink" and found the Into That Foggy Night's quintessential ingredient!

Clippy Butagun instantly starts shoveling the Into That Foggy Night into its muzzle, slurping the lumpy Melon Tone Concentrate amidst huge swaths of dissolved cinnamon and thin honey. You intended the shaved matterhorn to last the whole drink, but Clippy's drinking it so fast that you suppose it doesn't really matter.

[Image: ViaVJTw.png]
[Image: GFBfPWa.png]

However, something seems to change once Clippy properly finishes the cup-- its whole cast-metal body suddenly stiffens up, and its loose-fitted mechanisms screech to a halt.

[Image: ViaVJTw.png]
[Image: 38jn7s3.png]

The paperclip who is a gun is now sitting very, very still.

[Image: 1B0kC66.png]

[Image: p5GFSyv.png]
[Image: mUgT34D.png]

Stax spends a few moments investigating Clippy, testing to make sure its eyes are still responsive to stimuli, which they are-- barely. Before he can get much better of a look, two large, clambering figures enter the bar, both with a tube trailing behind them! One of them appears to be the familiar face of Depricae, but the other is a more aggressive, bulky-looking variety of CES, and she loudly announces her presence.

[Image: PJKI5PE.png]
[Image: tiMuhjg.png]

You immediately adopt your welcoming demeanor, trying not to let Clippy's sudden catatonia get to you.

Mordicae's many, many eyes suddenly widen, and she grapples the meek-looking Depricae to bring them both up to the bar.

[Image: PJKI5PE.png]
[Image: FFoAbMP.png]
[Image: UDHmnVj.png]
[Image: Q5hf3ks.png]

That's... almost all the coins you currently have.

[Image: UDHmnVj.png]
[Image: qQbLopU.png]

Well, this is certainly an interesting opportunity! Hiring one or both of the CES would cost you a big chunk of your current funds (100 coins for the day, each), nearly everything you earned over the course of yesterday's work-- but they could easily lighten your workload in one way or another.

If you were hiring, you would also have to pick a job for each CES to do. A mismanaged pick could lead to disaster in the future!

Don't hire them yet. Tell them your current income simply isn't enough to pay them that amount, but maybe once you get more business you can bring them on. Ask them what kind of positions they would like to have if the opportunity comes up.
