You are greeted as you enter this store by a little person dressed as a hobbit. The interior is arcane, cave like with all manner of Tolkien gadgets and decorations. He leads you to the photocopiers which are green and scaled and puff smoke like dragons when they are used. If there is a paper jam, a tall bearded Gandalf - esque wizard appears and shakes his staff and waves his hands about, removes the paper and returns from whence he came. Orcs work behind the cash register and can only screech in an unholy tone and beat a handful of coloured biros against their chest plates when spoken to.

       Lmao this is very weird yet strangely compelling. I'd go to one of these copy shops just for the experience. I'm confused as to how they Orcs can communicate the prices to you though. This gets a [+] for the amazing pun in the description.

       //Gandalf - esque wizard appears and shakes his staff// Not the best of bosses.

       Ha ha ha, I love this. I'm giving you a + [ben], but sounds to me that a copy shop is not the sort of business that have enough income to spare in make up, wigs and characterisation (etc.) every day.

       It'd give all of hte D&D RPers on their days off something to do, though.
