    About Us

    The Bar

    The Stray Sheep is a friendly bar with a warm atmosphere, hosting events for Lich server, and a hub for roleplay. We are located in the Lavender Beds, Plot 3 Ward 11 and are open for business on Sunday evenings. The bar is also free to use during the week for roleplay if it is not already in use.
    We host our own events but are also available for hire for an event of your own. Check the events page for more information.

    Private Bar

    We now have a private bar available for use in private chambers #2. This bar is available at all times and is to be used when patrons would like a quieter space to drink. This bar is run by Chadki Qestir, who is of no relation to Chad, but also does not appear to be able to speak.
    Please let a member of staff know if you will be using the private bar so we can keep track of people inside to stop it becoming overcrowded.

    Etiquette at the Stray Sheep

    We care about safety at the Stray Sheep, and ask our visitors to follow the below rules:

    ● Please refrain from using magic inside the premises
    ● Please put all weapons in the changing room area to the left of the bar (right of the stage)
    ● Any disagreements must be taken outside - no fighting inside the premises
    ● Please do not partake in explicit activity or overly excessive public displays of affection in the bar, it is a public place. We do have beds available upstairs. (and keep it to private chat)
    ● Please show respect to the staff and patrons, we have security on hand and will escort you from the bar or ban you if we deem you undesirable
    ● Non roleplayers are welcome to come and visit, but please show respect for those RPing and do not run around, jump on the furniture or spam the chat with emotes or out of character (OOC) chat.

    Please speak to the bartenders or Chad (NPC) to order.

    Thank you and we hope you enjoy your visit!

    The Staff

    Mina and Minato Kimura - The Owners

    The siblings Mina and Minato Kimura are the owners of the Stray Sheep bar and FC, working together to organise events and run the bar. Minato is the quieter of the two, shying away from the hosting duties and preferring to serve behind the bar, whereas Mina is more outgoing, and loves to be the center of attention.

    Silvy Rosethorne - Bartender

    One of our oldest members of staff at the Sheep, Silvy loves to create interesting drinks challenges for our patrons, which are deceptively difficult to beat! She also hosts exciting events for the bar, namely her ever popular Singles Nights.

    Kara Jhargo (Ki'quara) - Bartender and Security
    Kara is one of our staff members who is multi talented, being able to serve behind the bar, act as security and as an entertainer. She is a mysterious Viera who often charms customers with her smile and grace.

    Seb Qestir - Security
    One of the security staff at the Sheep, Seb is quiet, literally, and likes nothing more than a peaceful evening with no trouble from the customers.

    Lilac Yatsuragi - Bartender and Security
    Lilac is a part time barmaid at the Sheep, showing up to cover for Silvy in most cases or while she has time off from her little 'adventures' . She's not as skilled in making drinks as most of the other older members, but still she gives every drink her all. She especially loves making hot chocolate, adding a lot of cream to the top.

    Mjern Hyskaris - Bartender and Security
    A soft-spoken Viera behind the bar. While she's friendly, it's not easy to gain her trust but she will lend you your ear as much as possible. You can occasionally see her on the stage entertaining guests with a dance.

    Amethia Almendine - Bartender
    (info TBC)

    Hide Mori - Bartender
    (info TBC)

    Chad McGee - Bartender (NPC)
    The ever quiet man behind the bar, Chad is always there to serve drinks without uttering a word, and will always listen to your stories. He will never complain. Or will he?

    Chadki Qestir - Bartender (NPC)
    Another man of few words, but only because he cannot speak at all. This doesn't hinder him from serving the private bar all by himself. Just don't ask him to tell a joke.

    The Fellowsheep

    The Stray Sheep has our own fellowship! If you would like to join the Fellowsheep, then please let Mina Kimura know!

    Secret Starlight

    This year's Starlight Party will be on December 20th! Just like last year, we will be hosting Secret Starlight! There are two options to take part, either by signing up in advance, or by bringing a present on the day!

    This is an OOC gift giving! Don’t feel as if you can’t participate if your character wouldn’t.

    Rules

    Option 1
    Names will be drawn at random and matched up, letting the gift giver choose from the wishlist of the gift receiver.

    Gift Receiving - Make a wishlist between 2 - 4 items. Please bear in mind most folks are not rolling in Gil, those difficult to obtain/craft items may be a bit of a stretch. For those with housing, indicate if you’d be accepting of outdoor/indoor furnishings. Be as specific as you like - this will help you get a gift you will love.

    Gift Giving - Gil itself is an option (but less fun to give). To those giving crafted items, remember if you are the crafter, your name will be attached to the item, causing the ‘secret’ to be out! Gift only ONE item, to make this fair for everyone and easier on everyone's inventory space. If you are struggling, check the character’s profile on the Lodestone to see what minions they already have. Please do not give Mogstation items.

    Sign up using THIS FORM

    You have until Midnight GMT on December 13th to sign up! Names will be drawn on the 14th with gifts to be given out at the party on the 20th. If you're unable to come to the party then you can still take part! You will need to send me your gift in game so I can give it to the recipient at the party. Likewise, anyone not at the party at the time of the gift giving will receive their gift at a later date. Please make this easy on me so I don’t have to chase up gifts from people.

    FAQs
    Q: If I'm going to be late to the party can I still take part?
    A: Of course, we will likely be holding the present giving near the end of the evening around 8:30/9pm to give people time to arrive.

    Option 2
    Too late to sign up? Would you rather give a random gift to a random person? Then simply bring something nice on the day and I will give it to a random participant also doing the same!

    This works as follows:
    You bring one SINGLE random present to the party on the day. Mina collects all the random presents and then they are mixed up and given out to participants who also brought random presents! Those participating in option 1 will not be included! Once again, please do not give Mogstation items and bear in mind not everyone is rolling in Gil. Minions are a great gift idea if you are struggling to choose. You will need to be able to attend the party to take part in this option!

    Please note: You can only participate in ONE option! If you would like to sign up for option 1 then you cannot also bring a random gift on the day!

    Contact me on Discord at Frainy#5826 if you have any questions.
