Great Big Tracts of Land, or How I Bought a Castle

I thought I saw something about brewing beer on sight. And also mead. That would get me to Ye Olde Tavern.

That's be a pretty awesome super-power.

I will, from this day forward, attribute all of my grammatical errors to a subconscious desire to fire beer from my eyes. Or turn stuff into beer with my eyes.

If you learn how to do this, I will worship you as my own lord and drunken savior.

Yeah, but you know how all superheroes have a weakness or drawback? Costontine can make beer with his eyes -- but it's all Corona.

Elysium can have him then.

That's some straight up Frank Miller brutality there.

Eventually, the hipsters will get tired of PBR and switch to Corona, and you'll be rich, rich, rich! For a few years, at least.

I think you should begin upgrades to your castle like a portcullis, arrow slits, and a barbican. You just never know when York will grow tired of your impiety or jealous of the duchies you hold.

Not enough gold, sire!

Need wenches...definitely wenches.

'The Last Inn' is a must. Don't care about the other names offered so far

No lie. Pretty heinous drawback.

Especially when you consider all the people who will try to jam limes into your eyes to compensate..

Just make sure to vet your spymaster well.

That's less than an hour from me. Could you please board pm me the phone number, contact info if you get it? I will gladly visit and toss back a brew there.

Congrats! Look, I don't have much to add, but I do have what I believe is the quintessential tag line for Ye Olde Tavern:

"Here There Be Flagons"

I just may have to raise you to Knight of the Realm for that suggestion. Free mead for life!

Sure, it'll be a short, brutish life, likely to end at the point of a sword while fighting in a minor skirmish with the barons of the North. But hey, free mead!

I'll take what I can get.

Okay everyone. Pack it up. We're done here. Rubb Ed has won the internet.

He slays me.

Pretty much. I had been chewing on some ideas ... but I will stop now.

Eh, just find an actual spy. Given the breadth of job experience around here, there has to be at least one.

Check to make sure he's a eunuch, right?

Teneman, you have your catchphrase. Rubb Ed knocked that one into high orbit.

Should we just start a new thread? I think this one is finished.

Rubb Ed definitely locked down the catchphrase for the pub, no doubt. Still not sure I've got an equivalent for the B&B portion of the business, though there have definitely been some serious contenders.

We'll actually be doing the property inspections the next few days, which is one of the last major milestones to pass before we close the deal. Another few weeks and this thing will be official! As soon as we get to that point I'll start up an official thread with details on the location, the permanent Goodjer discount package, some of our long term plans, etc.

Rubb Ed's suggestion is brilliant. I'd make a minor tweak, since "Here Be Flagons" is shorter, and I've heard the dragon variant minus the "there" far more often than with.

Google agrees.

Not to take anything away from Rubb Ed's post, though - it's a great one.

Don't post details of permanent discount packages for GWJ here. It will come back to bite you in the arse.

It'd be like me running a restaurant and posting 'Anyone wearing red gets 15% off'. It would be a f*cking disaster.

It's OK to do things over email; it doesn't all have to be on the forum.

I read him write that all GWJers stay for free.
