I was really hyped for a roleplay event along the lines of wow beerfest or just hanging out at the prancing pony in lotr. I was hoping for dancing / music making mini games. Darts. Cards and dice. Dwarf kareoke.
Drinking and fighting skaven just seemed nightmarish to me.
Sometimes just chilling out drinking, playing music and smoking is enough. maybe mild violence punching each other. Adding hordes of screaming skaven seemed a bit meh to me.
It was like when I first started as a GM / DM over relying on combat.
People sometimes like to be silly and chill.
In adventuring lore the pub was a place to chill out and get new work.
