With the 68th Map of the Week finds we remain in the borderlands town of Óðinn's House in the Kingdom of Slovania. This week we take a look at the Trailsend Inn.
Innkeeper and owner Petr, a 51-year-old human male merchant, welcomes customers from all walks of life including adventurers. He also makes a point of hiring only waitresses who do after-hours business, a practice that has given the Trailsend a bit of a shady reputation but one that hasn't hurt business. The inn consists of a brewhouse and a three-story main building. The cellar is a storage area. The public room, the kitchen and the apartments of Petr's mother and sister are on the ground floor. Guest rooms are on the second and third stories. Peter's apartment is on the second story. The apartments of his two waitresses are on the top floor. Accomodations and furnishings are simple but functional. The inn is comfortable but it shows no signs of luxury. The 10 single rooms cost 6 bronze pieces per night. The three doubles cost five bronze pieces per person nightly. The two suites cost five gold pieces per week. The public room serves breakfast to house guests, but it remains closed during the day. It opens from 17 bells (5 p.m.) to midnight seven days a week. Drinks are limited to the house lager beer at 5 copper pieces per quart/liter tankard (pints are not served) and spirits from the Royal Distillery in Novýdomov at 1 to 6 bronze pieces per shot/0.1 liter glas. The menu offers simple, traditional Slovánska dishes of excellent quality. Prices range from 3 to 6 bronze pieces.
