staffed shop Shrunken Head Counter

The Shrunken Head Counter

Thank you to Pixie for the graphics.

The first thing you notice upon entering the Bowling Alley is the flashing banner right above the counter indicating that this is where the most important person of this shop is...and where to go first. The counter has the perfect spot, overseeing all the other areas of the Bowling Alley, so don't try to sneak your way past. A little further down the counter, you can find the Snack Bar, should you feel hungry.

This is the place you come to to get your bowling shoes. This is the place you come to to be directed to one of the bowling lanes. This is the place you come to if you need help with something or want to talk to the shopkeeper. But most of all, this is the place you come to to pay. If the shopkeeper is otherwise engaged or no where in sight and you want to pay, just ring the bell on the counter and she will be there for you soon.

If it's something else you need, simply wait for him to come back from wherever he is. He'll be back soon.


1 Round: 9 Sickles per person
2 Rounds: 1 Galleon 1 Sickle per person
3 Rounds: 1 Galleon 8 Sickles per person
4 Rounds: 2 Galleons 2 Sickles per person
5 Rounds: 2 Galleons 6 Sickles per person
Group (of 5 to 10): 7 Sickles/person/game
Larger groups/parties, please talk to the shopkeeper!

OOC: Costumers wishing to bowl must post here first AND receive permission from the shopkeeper (Felixir) before proceeding to the bowling lanes.

Bowling. One of the few sports that didn't require a broom that he still enjoyed. West grumpily entered the establishment and trudged his way to the counter. It had been a horrid day and he needed to blow some steam off before returning to the Ministry. The item in question was safely hidden away in his rooms, so the worry over carrying it around was relieved for the time being.

He arrived to the counter and desperately tried to clear the emotion from his face. It wasn't the shopkeepers fault he was in a poor mood. "Good day. I'd like a pair of shoes, size 11, and to bowl three games." He paused and glanced at the alley, "A lane away from the youngsters, please."

Having taken advantage of the relatively quiet day, Caspar had been off in the back room, re-organising and cleaning the place. It was something he usually liked to do outside of business hours, but there was only so much time he could spend manning the empty counter without getting the itch to do something else. Plus, he was his own boss, which meant doing what he wanted, when he wanted.

... And right now, he wanted to help out that customer who'd just come in. Hearing the door of the shop open and close, Caspar quickly abandoned what he was doing and stepped up to the counter just as the customer approached. He was about to start his usual 'hello good morning what can I do for you' spiel when said customer beat him to the punch.

"Right you are, sir," Caspar nodded, punching numbers into his cash register and summoning a pair of size elevens from the collection of clean bowling shoes. As they set themselves down on the counter, he gave the man his total. "Just for yourself, that will be be 1 galleon and 8 sickles. Lane Three is set up and ready to go for you." And a good distance from where the kids tended to hang out, over at the gaming corner. Let nobody say he didn't give his customers what they wanted.

He did his best to keep a pleasant face as the kind gentleman behind the counter assisted him. His prompt service was much appreciated and the arrival of his shoes and announcement of his lane assignment started to melt away the tension in his shoulders. He'd soon be working off some of the added stress of the past few days.

"Thanks." He glanced down the lane number to better see his assignment. "Lane three looks like it will work just fine." He mustered up a small smile before grabbing the 1 galleon and 8 sickles out of his pocket. "If everything is in order, I'll be off." He picked up his shoes and started to step away before turning back. "I'll be up after a game to order some refreshments." He gave a little nod towards the snack counter and noted the fine assortment of terribly unhealthy options. They would be the perfect thing to further improve his mood.

*sappysapper* MAJNOO, YO!

Shopping for your supplies was exhausting, also very boring. So fifteen year old, Zachary Lowe made his way inside the Shrunken Head Bowling Alley and approached the counter to spend the last of his money for the day.

Leaning against the counter, he looked around to see if anyone was around before ringing the bell.

Having been down at the food and drinks area serving refreshments to some of customers, Caspar strolled into sight at the sound of the bell. Seeing his (hopefully) newest customer, Caspar leaned on the counter with both hands and smiled. "How can I help you today?"

Matt strolled into the Shrunken Head Bowling Alley looking forward to what the evening would hold. Working hard and training was great and he genuinely LOVED that, but relaxing and having a good time was also on his top priority list.

HENCE bowling. Awesomesauce.

The 19 year-old went over to the counter and rang the bell that was on it. Multiple times.

Bennett was looking for something to do to take his mind off of work. It had been a busy day and he was in much need of a break. So there he found himself.

He spotted someone around his age. That's what he was missing. Everyone knew that bowling was more fun if you were competing against someone. Maybe he'd just casually partner up here.

From the back room, Caspar suddenly heard the dulcet tones of the counter bell being rung repeatedly. Expecting to find either a very young child or perhaps a troublesome school kid out there (it was the wrong time of year for the latter, what with school being in session, but not entirely impossible), he was therefore just a little taken aback when he emerged and saw only adults. Masking his surprise, he fixed his best customer-greeting smile onto his face and took up his place at the cash register.

"How can I help you today?" Caspar asked, addressing the one who looked as though he'd been ringing the bell, and casting a glance across to the other individual as he did so, unsure whether the pair were there together or not. He supposed he'd find out shortly.

Bowling was, Ren had decided early on in his life, something that sit fairly high atop the small list of things that he enjoyed. And that was saying something because he much preferred doing nothing. Bowling with shrunken heads was pretty much the icing on the cake.

Running a hand through his hair, the twenty-something approached the counter.

Lola was not here to bowl.

Lola was here to see if she could convince some shrunken heads to leave with her. Why? Just because. She wanted to see how useful they could be, and it was a lot easier to source them from the alley than it would be to kill someone and shrink their head. The latter was doable, but most likely tedious, so she'd eliminated it as an option.

For now.

She was eyeing the board wondering how many rounds she would need to achieve her goal when someone else approached.

Oh good, perhaps she wouldn't have to pay now. She offered her absolute best, most charming and disarming smile.

Possible scapegoat too? Useful.

As he neared, Ren blinked, his brows coming together slightly at the girl who was giving him what she probably thought was an irresistible smile. He was suspicious. Girls who smiled like that at strangers usually had an ulterior motive. He was sure it wasn't because she found him attractive or anything like that. Or did she, hmm.

Unless she was a newly hired personnel?

But Ren had been to this establishment enough to know that she was not the main shopkeeper. A thought that he wanted to point out. "You're not the shopkeeper."

But if she indeed was a new hire then she needed to work on her 'hi, welcome to the bowling alley' smile. Or others will think she was offering more than shrunken heads.
