Right you horrible lot it’s time for the next one, brought to you by out last Winner @GreyMatter:

Even in the dark warrens of the underhive, where unspeakable toxins drip from above and the prospect of accidental death is constant, the human need for semi-neutral social drinking, eating and to see and be seen is a powerful one:

Ye Ol Taverns have formed along road sides & tunnel intersections for as long has humanity could call itself such.

Before a hive would have been built, there would have been a shack off beside the colony motor pool where engine parts were used to distill mostly non-toxic beverages for consumption.

As the shape of the hive took form and the domes were built, expanded upon & sometimes collapsed in on themselves, watering holes & waystations would form along transit ways for hungry travelers and thirsty locals.

In the mid-hive a tavern might form beneath a ventilation shaft enticing customers to get a breath of fresh air and drink after a long day (though the former would probably be the biggest draw than the latter)

While in the underhive livable space is at a premium, and that which roughly matches this description is constantly fought over by the residents and other things that dwell in region.

Enterprising proprietors might setup temporary establishments from the backs of mobile cargo containers in locations where foot traffic is high & random gunfire is suspiciously absent

Others will be lucky enough to have the connections to setup inside a settlement around a transit gate, semi secure behind the walls as long as they can keep up the security payments.

The particularly brave (or mentally lacking) have been known to setup shop in the no man's land between 2 or more large gangs, hoping to capture the business of all sides as a neutral location and the promise of cheap alcohol & edible food-stuffs. Though these locations have been known to be short lived and burn particularly brightly at the end.

Yakcomp 28, will focus around the denizens of these smoky establishments where hands stray to holsters when the door opens too quickly.

Your task is to tell the story of one of those underhivers (or maybe the establishment itself if you want) who finds themselves at Ye Ol Watering Hole at "Happy" Hour.

Closing date is approx 6 weeks from now when the world last says good bye to Sunday 9th June 2019.

Anything goes for this build the bar or just a regular visitor - it can be based on any gaming system supported by this site.

I prefer the broad entry requirements comps it’s more fun. At the end of the day the voting public will decide if you are worthy enough to join the Yakelite or whether you should drown your sorrows....

The only folks who should be drowning their sorrows are those too scared to even enter!
Everyone should have a crack at this one! You just have to make one mini and explain why they are at a pub!

I’m In!
And I’ll be making The Lash Club of Mankfester and it’s resident DJ Eyeball Steve!

Happy St George’s Day yakkers.

@Punktaku, I feel you Brother. I’m having a dry April, so I’m not allowed intoxicating beverages for another week. I’ve survived my birthday, a staff party, and a 4 day Bank Holiday without any alcohol, so feel I could reasonably model this comp and it’s backstory on myself!

aww.... i’ve been straight edge for nearly 20 years... i can’t enter on moral high grounds....
The answer to me is obvious, you need to make the man/mutant that is the leader of the Wildsnake Anonymous group!
Maybe he is holding a placard and standing outside the bar? Perhaps he is doing a bit leafleting highlighting the effects of drinking the juices of fermented mutant creatures?
I’m sure you can think of something!

I’m in, sounds like fun!
I was due to start making a bar for the upcoming Manchester tribemeet so this should work out nicely. Not sure I’ll get the bar done in 6 weeks mind but I’ll definitely get a bar room regular modelled and painted in time. My squig wrangler for the campaign will be my bar fly.
Mick fungee, the sump croc wrestling, squig wrangler and local piss artist. greatest hive tracker on necromunda, even the native Ratskins respect his knowledge of the hive and ash wastes outback. :p

Would Cawdor have any sort of Temperance Movement among its members? "The Emperor doesn't drink Wildsnake, so why should you?"

Brilliant.

[I cannot promise I will get much of an entry put together for this one either, but ideas are percolating. We shall see...]
