Barley

Description:

Barley is an elf with a mustache and afro wearing sunglasses and a classy waiter outfit. To say he looks merely anachronistic is too generous. He always keeps a spectacular variety of spirits on his person, from which he mixes drinks to magical effect (literally).

Bio:

Barley is a mixologist from the mysterious Twilight Bar Room, home to a clan of master bartenders who devote their every waking hour to devising new menus every day. It’s said anyone with the fortitude to go in for a hard night’s drinking and stay conscious into the dawn can enter Drunkard’s Lemuria, and attain enlightenment. Though it’s unlikely that they’ll remember it afterwards.

Barley is over five hundred years old, and has spent much of that time gathering drink recipes from around the world. Many brave men have fallen to his menus. His secrets to youth are drink and dance; being an elf probably helps too.

Menu:

Bombs
208 Proof Dwarven Firewater (Fire Bomb) – “You gotta be careful with this one. If you pour it too fast, you could lose a hand.”
Whitethrone Royale (Frost Bomb) – “The winter wolves say it has a minty aftertaste, but nobody else can feel their tongue long enough to tell.”
Glitterschlager (Glitter Bomb) – “No one can resist the delicious taste of cinnamon sugar in their eyes.”

Glitter Bomb (Su): Causes a glitterdust effect in the bomb’s radius. The blindness effect only applies on a direct hit. Deals -1 damage per die.

Mutagen
Were-Whiskey (+Str, -Int) - "It's mostly just PCP."
Napaciza Retsina (+Dex, -Wis) - "Sweetened with lead syrup and with just a whiff of turpentine. I've never told anyone the rest of the recipe: nobody's asked."
Dwarfhead Double Stout (+Con, -Cha) - "Every cask contains a bit of hair from the beard of a high priest of Torag."

1st Level Drinks
