You ascend the stairs and emerge into the upper floor of the tavern. The wooden floor is adorned with plush rugs, and elaborately painted tapestries hang from the walls, giving the overall impression of either tremendous wealth or horrible fashion sense and access to a thrift store. Stepping forward, you are immediately waylaid by a shadowy figure that drifts from the corner. A tendril drifts from the center mass and extends towards you.

"Present identification, please!"

To the south a staircase leading downwards.
To the north is a door blocked by a moving shadow.

You stride through the door of the tavern, immediately being required to dodge an airborne mug and what may have been its owner. Feeling somewhat ruffled, but otherwise unharmed, you assess your surroundings.

A group of ridiculously over-muscled fellows play cards at a humorously tiny table by the fireplace. Somewhat strangely, each carries an enormous medieval weapon of some sort, whether it be stabby, choppy, or smashy. Upon further inspection, you notice that their deck is constructed of tanned and dried reptilian leather, the sort of which your Aunt Rita might make an umbrella case out of.

At the bar stands one of the fattest men you have ever seen, easily weighing upwards of 30 pumpkins! He looks extremely bored, and replies to any drink orders with a noncommittal grunt, driving off potential drunkards with a dismissive wave of his meaty hand.

Over in the corner, the darkness seems to coalesce into an uncannily spooky blob of plot point, partially concealing a cloaked and hooded man holding a two-handed sword and what appears to be a necklace adorned with tiny finger bones.

Thanks to the overexposure of scandalous behavior, you have become jaded, and find yourself thinking the most ungentlemanly thoughts. Good choice, I'm sure it will assist you in future job interviews. Your Acumen returns to normal.

To your north is a staircase leading upwards.
To your east is slum street.

The sloshed one seems evasive, but after several well placed anecdotes on your extensive history in the art of cricket, you manage to extract some information out of him. According to the man, "Solomon" is one of the rare Land Walruses, a species highly sought after for its luxurious fur coats, which it painstakingly crafts from nearby felines.

You walk west and find yourself standing in front of an enormous tavern, the sort of establishment in which many unsavory characters may be found, along with the occasional mysterious quest-providing stranger. In front of the tavern a drunkard weaves back and forth in severe inebriation. Scandalous! In his hand he holds a large jug of avocado beer. Upon sighting you, he stumbles over and attempts to shake your hand. With significant slurring, he informs you that he's offering a substantial reward for the return of his adorable pet, a being he calls "Solomon Fluffbottom the 3rd". When asked, he declines to tell you what happened to the 1st and 2nd. He accuses a local businessman of Solomon's disappearance.

You break into a softshoe routine that speaks volumes of your well-to-do background. Satisfied, you enter the cobbler's shop with all the grace you can muster. The cobbler himself is seated behind the counter, tapping out a substantial reservoir of gravel from a gnome-sized boot. He seems quite intent on his activities until you deliver a soft "ahem". As he looks up, you tip your hat in greeting, as every well bred man is wont to do; Unfortunately, a rain of sweat pours down your face and onto the wooden floor. Glaring at it for a moment, he directs his attention back to you. He asks how he may help.

To your south is slum street.

SPECIAL ATTACK MODE DISCOVERED: FISTICUFFS

Thinking quickly, you put up your dukes and have at the second Ruffian with a show of dueling how-to not seen since your grandfather wrestled a mighty Alaskan elephant on the plains of Costa Rica. He reels under the force of your highly refined pummeling and succumbs to the bleak obsidian of death.

Ruffian 1: 1/2 HP
Ruffian 2: DEFEATED

Finding himself rightly outmatched, the first Ruffian flees, cucumberless, into a nearby alley, logically dropping all of his carried possessions in a neat pile before you.

You pump your fist in victory, nay, dare I say fistory, and collect your winnings.

You obtained:
210 Superbucks
304.9 Gentsperience Points

Having obtained the proper gentsperience required, you may now level up!

4 Ability Points gained [You may distribute these to either Burliness, Acumen, Spryness or Pulchritude as you see fit]!

Hit Points boosted! You now have a maximum of 7 Hit Points!

Unlocked Scallywag Tree!

Gained Scallywag Ability: Villainous Chuckle!

You launch yourself into the air like a zeppelin and rocket towards the first Ruffian. Latching onto his extended cucumber, you whip your head about in a decidedly ungentlemanly way. Shortly, the vegetable is reduced to naught but chunks lodged within your gullet.

Your victim's skin is flayed by shards of flying cucumber, and he takes 1 point of damage.

Due to the ferocity of the attack, you gain 1 Scallywag Coin!

The second Ruffian rears back and delivers a numbing blow with his green cylinder, dealing you 1 point of damage. Chortling in amusement, he mimes the deliverance of further harm as you regain your feet.

Ruffian 1: 1/2 HP
Ruffian 2: 2/2 HP

To your west, slum street continues.

You toddle your way over to the west, immediately passing two hobos, a prostitute, and a prostitute that appears to cater specifically to hobos. In a startling turn, you suddenly find yourself in the slums. For a classy gent like you, this is a faux pas of epic proportions! Due to the horrible trauma inflicted by your surroundings, your Acumen is temporarily reduced by 2 points.

As expected, after mere moments, you are accosted by ruffians! Two thugs leap from the shadows, brandishing deadly cucumbers in a threatening manner.

Prepare for honorable duel!

The first move is yours!

You question the boy about Chiclets. He stares at you, multiple antennae twitching in contemplation, and after some deliberation holds out his box, crying "Superbucks! Chiclets!". Can't fault the lad for his enthusiasm.

A doublehawk passes lazily overhead.

One might consider this an homage to MSPaint Adventures and Zork at the same time. You probably know the deal; Whoever posts an action first has the character perform that action, if possible. If I manage to commit to this (which, although unlikely, isn't impossible), I may switch to actually illustrating. As of right now, however, I'd prefer to keep the workload low so I will be more inclined to come back to it.

You emerge into the scorching Abulonia sunlight. Sweat immediately pools beneath your bowler, causing your scalp to prune. Curses. You spot a small Abulonian boy standing on the corner by the apothecary, waving his tentacles at passerby and screeching about Chiclets. Curious, you approach him. Upon noticing you, he flares his gills in greeting and proclaims proudly: "Chiclets!" He holds in his claws a small cardboard box, which proves to be filled with tiny pieces of hard-shelled gum.
