Bill of lefts
Item Type: Artifact
- A bill left by a group of heroes to the last hero to wake up from a night of drunken stupor. Often with extra and/or mistaken entries (often of higher amount.)
- Some other hero's bill (usually seated at the hero's left) mistaken by the hero as his/hers after the other hero had already left drunk, forgetting to pay.
It is mistakenly (or not mistakenly) handed over to a very drunk hero to pay. This bill is commonly given by unscupulous taverns found especially in Beerburgh, Herowin, and Los Adminos. These bartenders usually add an extra zero to pad the bills amount, with the unfortunate (or fortunate for the tavern) consequence of the drunk hero seeing double the added zero.
The drunken hero usually pays without haggling or challenging the bill's amount due to "Drunken Pride" syndrome, or the fear of being laughed at by other drunken heroes for any internally made-up reasons or inadequacies thought up by the hero while drunk.
Plural form: Bills of Lefts
A slightly crumpled small piece of paper with the logo of the tavern, with unintelligible scribbles of numbers and zeroes.
Example in a Sentence
A very drunken and incoherent Conan The Barber Inspector is left with a bill of lefts by his very cunning and not-so-drunk guildmates.
Other Uses or Definitions
- Rarely, a bill with the word "left" written all over it instead of amount owed. Happens when a bartender gets drunk after hearing tall heroes' short tales. By tavern rules: no amount equals freebie.
- Nickname of William Of The Left Gates
