The Glimpsy Glance
The one restaurant in town, it has the smell of a small town diner, but little else in common. It is filled with all different kinds of tables and chairs (none matching) including some that look like they were made for dolls. The border along the top of the walls shows numerous black stick figure-like silhouettes actually dancing. There are speakers throughout the restaurant that will play music upon request even though there is no stereo to speak of. The large windows have tinting that is cut into intricate patterns which change depending on who is looking through them. Towards the back there is a door leading to the kitchen which would be a health inspectors nightmare. The sink seems perpetually filled with odd smelling vials and beacons, pots and pans caked with grime, various cooking utensils (some of which look like medieval torture devices), and plates growing a colorful variety of molds. Wafe, the cook, is a chemist who combined his laboratory with the kitchen and sees no problems with mixing deadly chemicals right alongside strange and delicious foods he’s preparing for customers.
The menu for the day is written next t the kitchen door, since the food is free the menu is completely dependent on the cook.
The bar in front of the kitchen is made of a strong glass with rounded edges and dim green rope lights twirled and knotted throughout the inside.
The bathroom in the corner is fairly standard except there is a shark with wide open jaws painted on the urinal and graffiti on all the walls, one of which says “your friend, Jesus.”

The Library is the oldest building in Sendia. It predates the town itself, as humans gather and settle near water the people of Sendia were drawn to this building. On the outside the structure appears almost impossible with its waves and curves, not a single sharp corner to be seen. Upon entering one might find themselves convinced that this place was not built, but grown. For there are no seams in the woodwork or indications of it being cut. It’s as if the interior were worn down over time to its current state, shelves and tables included. The entire building smells of old books and lavender (Orma claims the lavender helps prevent mold).
Orma Whitefire, the dragon Librarian, Prides herself in her extensive book collection. She claims to have nearly every book ever written, even the ones that have been lost in time. Every few years Orma flies off to find new books to add to her collection. It is rumored that she has burned down many libraries in other lands so that she could take their book collections for herself.
Curl’s Sign Shop
The sign shop is made completely out of green metal street signs with one large metal sign out front that says “Thank you lord for thinking about me, I’m alive and doing fine.” Inside this small shop is covered top to bottom with hanging hooks filled with various different signs. The hooks of signs are labeled with their own signs with things like restricting signs, helpful signs, confusing signs, labeling signs, store signs, protest signs, and begging signs. Curl gets very few customers, but she doesn’t seem to mind, she loves her shop and even makes her own signs, though usually just for her own amusement. Sometimes she’ll hang signs up around town, labeling things that no one ever wanted labeled.
