Picture yourself (with a little man) in a boat on a river.

Hanny had made up her mind and taken leave of King Innocent. “Why are you leaving me girl?” asked the King. “Oh Majestic Majesty, King of Kings, Lord of the Dance, and Suzerain of Suspect Undies!

Chapter 8 – Dumbell Ena

The atmosphere inside the inn was very much like that of any Public House anywhere in the Known Universe.
