Old Tom, they call me.  Of course, I was Young Tom when I started here, but that was many a year's gone by now.  Yes, I've been keeping bar at The Drum for a long time.

I've seen some things in my time, I can tell you.  Of course, there was all that terrible business with McGee, that started right here you know.  Yes, here in The Drum.  Lovely boy he was, that Sancho, it was a terrible shame what happened.  Terrible shame.  She was a lovely lady too.

But I'll tell you what, something happened the other day that put me right in mind of that sad tale.  Another diamond thing, it was, blue one.  Not the usual crowd at all, they were traveller types, know what I mean.  Anyway, he holds it up just the same as she did all those years ago, him with the funny hair and the accent, very learned gentleman he was, ever so well spoken.  They were all very chuffed about it anyway.  Quite boisterous lads they were, but high-spirited, you know, nothing mean about them.  Tipped well and didn't make a mess.

Anyways, thanks for popping by.  All the best to you.  Cheers


Note - two of the missing scenes from the Piscithopterwould have been our heroes assembling as is traditional in a tavern, and the mummies celebrating afterwards, but I ran out of time, so now it's a free build vig.  This pub is a Kaliphlinised plagiarism of WalterBoy's excellent Adventure Brews.  Nothing really new here apart from the windows, and it is my first time to try the partially studded floor for posing figs.  Old Tom is a tribute to the memory of my college Barman.

I really like the little roof over old Tom  :thumbup: And those windows are spectacular, they just shout Kaliphlin!  
The doorway on the left is also very nice, excellent work  :classic:

Great little vig robuko, those windows are brilliant, as is the doorway! Great idea. :thumbup:  I also like the little sloped awning over the bar, it really helps break up the "squareness" of the room.  :classic:
