Rumors

  • You heard about our well. Yeah it’s been dry for years now. We lost a bunch of kids a few years back. Someone said a tentacle reach out and drag them to their death. Ever since no one goes by that damn well.
  • Primitive heathens are throwing parties in the woods.
  • Elves are lazy do-nothings, keeping dozens of specialized slaves; one’s entire purpose might be to turn a certain doorknob, while another would open the door; still another would remove a guest’s cloak, while a fourth hangs the cloak.
  • A chapman has the Green Sinew of Heir hidden in its cellar.
  • The cornerstone will be laid tomorrow for the swimming pool

Patrons

The following people are currently in the common room:

  • Monster’s best friend: repulsive to humans but nigh-irresistibly charismatic to unsavory subhuman types, ogres and giants find him especially amusing
  • centaur
  • A highly-skilled warrior filled with self-doubt has a mental breakdown every five minutes.
  • four patrons discuss which season of the year is best, and each has a different opinion
  • hill dwarf boasts about his son beating up the guard captain’s son – then looks about furtively
  • a tall gnoll and a dark-haired hill dwarf
  • overweight and stuttering blackjack

Valuables:

  • small box holding 14 coins: old goblin coin made of gold, worth about 8sp; the face has a proverb: peace, determination, lightning, the obverse shows a spiked chain [4]

  • Magic Item: shell trinket with glyphs; power: Twitch
