Our Philosophy

Times are tough, I have no doubt that. It has only been but a few years since the war ended, so I am sure many of us still struggle to rehabilitate, to return to our families and our simple lives. Such is the very reason why I created this establishment about eight years ago. I wanted our community to band together under one roof, so that we may share and confide in a common pain. At the same time, I wanted us all to see the light at the end of the tunnel, whether it is simply through dining here or drunkenly singing our hearts out with friends and family. By doing so, I believe that it will remind us of the simple times we once led. Many would say it is a foolish pursuit, one motivated entirely by escapism. And to some degree, it is. However, I found my peace here. Maybe you can find yours. It doesn't have to be here, but it is nonetheless a start. A good start.

Menu

Fried Rice Omelet

As the latest addition to the menu, this specific dish has quickly become a personal favorite among many. Made by our newest cook, this Eralan-inspired cuisine consists of fried rice topped with a creamy omelet. Be sure to give the omelet a slice, so that the custardy egg can flow throughout the plate. Then pour a generous amount of our rich demi-glace sauce, and watch as its flavor lights up your world!

Hamburger Steak

This one is quite a classic around here. It is a cheese-filled hamburger steak served with a sunny-side-up egg and some vegetables on the side.

Strawberry Cream Tart

Try out this delightful dessert made with a flaky crust, vanilla filling, and some fresh strawberries. Neither too sweet nor too bitter, it is a wonderful way to top off your meal.

Very Berry Pancakes

Craving for a large breakfast? Well then, why not eat our delicious pancakes? We serve them in a fairly large stack, accompanying it with some berries, cherries, strawberries, and anything that with the word "berries." Oh, and don't forget our quarterly Pancake Day!

Entertainment

Pancake Day

Damn. That, right there, is a heart attack on a stack.
"Egg Boy"
Pancake Day is a competition we hold in the first week of every four months. Here we challenge our participants to binge twenty-five pancakes as fast as possible. Whoever finishes first wins a free meal once a day for the whole month. Only four people may participate. A small tavern like this can only make so many pancakes, unfortunately.

Who's Who?

We may be very short on staff, but we manage to get the work done. You know how? Magic, of course! Through her phantasms, Illethia — bless her heart, by the way — is able to handle many jobs at once, whether it be cleaning, cooking, and catering. You get the idea. Over time, this inspired our patrons to create a fun little game called "Who's Who?" Here you make a bet with others and try to guess who is the real Illethia. If you guess correctly, well, free money for you! If not, then there's always the next time... assuming you didn't throw away your life savings.

Singing

Just 'cause my last name has "singer" in it, doesn't mean I can actually sing. Now leave me alone.
Ains "Egg Boy" Moonsinger
In the Red Reverie, we love to sing. And I mean, really love to sing. After all, what good is in a tavern if no one sings? Would be bland, right? Of course, not many of us are good singers, and a lot of us are usually too embarrassed to show that. So you might want to loosen up a bit with some drinks. Keep in mind, though, that we do not sing anything that speaks ill against the Volaines. Many of us here are Eralans, all of whom were once Volaines. Also, it makes our cook quite uncomfortable. We wouldn't want him to quit, would we? Besides, what would we do without those good eggs?

Quote of the Year:

"Every time I wear a straight face, someone will always give me an egg, thinking I'm mad. I mean, it's just my normal face, but I do love my free eggs. And so, I took 'em. At first, it was all fine and dandy until everyone started calling me "Egg Boy." Big mistake. Now no one even knows my real name. And you know you've fallen, oh so low, when you go from a future king to an inside joke at work."
 

Accomodations?

We have a second story, but we rarely provide accommodations. The maintenance is too much of an inconvenience for such a small staff. Though there are instances when we do provide a room for those who desperately need it, it is otherwise a living quarter for our staff.  

Conclusion

If you're interested, why not stop by at the Red Reverie? We would love to have you here, and I'm positive you would have a wonderful experience. Anyhow, that is enough talking on my behalf. I apologize for taking your time, though I greatly appreciate it.

Safe travels!
