First of all, apologies to everyone for being a week late. For those who didn't see my message last week: Our Internet connection is via UHF LTE transmission. The LTE station that serves us has serious problems last week that prevented our uploading anything of any size. Everything was supposed to be working on Thursday, but when I left for the weekend on Friday noon, all still was down. Things appear to be working just fine again today.

With the 73rd Map of the Week we continue in the borderlands town of Óđinn's House in the Kingdom of Slovania. This week we take a look at Šarlota's House of Healing, the largest house of non-magical and non-clerical healing in Slovania. Its success is due largely to the number of adventures who go into the ruins of the Ćsir Empire to the north and then return with serious injuries. However, adventurers with empty pockets need not go to Šarlota's; hers is a commercial adventure. Treatment is on the basis of cash only. The sizeable complex is a primitive version of a modern physician's practice with clinic and apothecary.

The building consists of a cellar, a ground floor and two upper stories. The cellar is a storage area. The ground floor houses rooms where the healers meet with patients who are not seriously ill or injured, the apothecary and a dining room and kitchen that serve both the staff and ambulatory patients making a convalescent stay in the house. The second story houses patients who need intensive care. The third story houses ambulatory convalescing patients.
