Bad Soph Bar: There’s one everywhere, typically right in the middle of startown. Even in most of those places which are, otherwise, quite a long way from being Wretched Hives, or anything like. Oddly enough, they never seem to be closed down, or attract much of a response from law enforcement unless something quite extreme happens.
One might, if one were a nasty suspicious type, think there was some sort of conspiracy to keep the type of soph that form the regulars in this distinctive type of bar away from the decent, upstanding folks who might otherwise wander in. Or maybe even a well-concealed franchise.
But who would possibly be involved in that sort of thing?
The Eldinimieuthunimis? Naw, couldn’t be them….
Or possibly the Fourth Directorate. Or maybe even both…
