Kelvin listened to the screams and the crashes and smiled.

He rose when the brute came back down the stairs, bouncing a purse in one hand before putting it away. Kelvin approached and asked, "Gronk want job?"

Gronk looked around unsure where the voice came from until Kelvin tugged on his pant leg. Gronk looked down onto the halfling that barely came up to his waist and laughed a whole hearted belly laugh.

"You want Gronk work for you?"

Kelvin held up his hand, fingers spread. "This many silvers per day, or twice half that if you do a good job. Also, ale."

Looking around the room, you all see a number of interesting patrons.

Roxy, the busty red-headed barmaid serving your drinks. She alternates between enjoying the attention from the groping patrons of the bar, and slapping those she finds unattractive with enough force to send them spinning out of their chairs.

In the corner, by himself, sits a man with a dark hood drawn over his features. There is a longsword on his belt, and a dagger, both of which seem to have seen a lot of use. He wears worn but serviceable hard leather boots, and his travel cloak bears mud from a long journey.

An old man with a long white beard sits at one table. There is a wooden staff propped his chair, and he wears a wizard's robes.

Three figures sit at a table: a dwarven fighter with an axe, a human ranger with a sword, and an elven ranger with a bow.

A large, fat man walks into the bar. He is dressed in merchant's robes. Puffing hard, he mops his forehead with a silk handkerchief. He walks up to the bar and orders a dram of whiskey.

"Best that you've got," he says. He pulls a silver coin from a large purse on his belt.

Kelvin looked around the room and noted the position of all the various patrons.

He wondered if the fat merchant was stupid or very stupid.

He decided to find out. He readied himelf in case there was a precipitous action on the part of his compatriots.

He addressed his employees. "Him. He's the one who owes me money."

He waited for them to absorb the words.

Ferdinand craned his neck gawking at the pervert. He felt somewhat saddened as he regarded this wretched specimen of manhood that had treated Squirt just like Old Olaf did his goats, compounding the shameful use with a larcenous refusal of the fair, agreed upon payment. His brow furrowed in anger and he patted his weapons, making sure all was ready at hand.

Kelvin looked at the... the... Ferdinand and the half-ogre steeling themselves for a fight and briefly felt a sense of remorse at taking advantage.

Briefly. The feeling quickly passed, as he estimated the contents of the merchant's purse.

If they waited, some of the other denizens of the tavern might get the same idea, amd that would be terrible.

He looked at his employees. "Well? Go get my money! You take him from the front and I'll take him from behind."

At that, he quietly pushed back his chair and walk up to the bar. He climbed up one of the stools in arm's reach of his target purse and waved to hand to get the bartenders attention.

He slapped a coin on the bar. "An ale, if you please."

Gronk walked up to the merchant and took the whiskey out of his hand. After downing it he growled "halfling say you owe money. You pay now!" Gronk smiled relieving his fangs and waited for them to work their magic.
