Good evening folks,

As per Jan's post, I'm putting together an IC guide to the taverns and inns of the Empire. Like Jan I think the tavern is kind of underestimated as a source for plot; yet how many times have people defended a tavern on a Myths or similar? Our characters spend a rather large amount of time in taverns (some more than others), and by giving more depth and continuity to these locations it'll give a greater immersion to adventures.

So! I'd love to hear from everyone about the taverns all over the Empire (and beyond, though the focus will be on the Empire itself to begin with). Mostly I'm looking for information from referees about taverns they've set. I don't expect you to remember the names of every place of hire you've shoved mercenaries in the past decades, but if people can remember the places of note then that would be fantastic. I'm not just interested in the tavern but in the people within it - the innkeepers and owners, and the people that frequent it. Any and all information you can provide would be fantastic. If you're a player who remembers a tavern of note then let me know and I can chase down the referee who set it.

The only thing that I would ask is that people absolutely do not PM me the information. Please email me at stantz@gmail.com instead - if you send me something via PM I'm liable to ignore it.

The sooner you do so, the sooner I can have the guide written up.

Thanks!

As an update to this:

Having trawled through the forums for locations of taverns past and present, I would especially be interested in people giving me information on taverns in the following cities, which seem to lack them at present - Gothiel, Keys, Port Miere.

Thank you to those who have already sent information.

THere should be a Grapevine in pretty much every city in the empire.

The one in Halgar is/was run by Sen (Dave Martin) & Natasha.

Doesn't Nex have a network of taverns? Huw's off in Canada at the moment though so I'm not sure if info on those will be very forthcoming at the moment.

There are some big Heroes based Taverns

The Fare Thee Well (Alguz)
The World's End (Port Miere and Everywhere...)
The Cart and Hammer (Forgetown)
The Yeoman (Halgar)

being some of the obvious ones ~ no doubt the respective proprietors will mail descriptions.

Hooray, I have all of those on my list already. Thanks Ian smile.gif


ETA: Please please do NOT PM me the information. It is much easier for me to have the information all in one place.

I have a full breakdown of all the descriptions of the Grapevine in Halgar, but slightly reluctant to post it publicly. Can I email it to you? (pm me your e-mail address)
