With the 132nd Map of the Week we take a look at the Three Rivers Inn in Storm Mill, the county seat of Slovania's tropical Grainland County.
Key to the Three Rivers Inn Floor Plans
The Three Rivers Inn is a relatively luxurious hostelry, despite the fact that it is not expensive. It also is the only inn in town. It is owned by the 48-year-old human male merchant Vitěslav. His wife, the 46-year-old, Jindřiška, a human female artisan, is both the chief cook and alewife. In the kitchen, she prepares a variety of dishes that range from local beef to fowl to freshwater fish from the Vichr. Meals run from 4 to 9 bronze pieces. In the brewhouse, she makes a delicious, light and golden top-fermented ale that sells for 2 copper pieces per pint/half-liter tankard. The inn's guest rooms, all with double beds. cost 7 bronze pieces per person nightly. Vitěslav and Jindřiška employ a bookkeeper, a human female merchant; a journeyman cook, a human male artisan; an apprentice cook, a human female commoner; a waiter and waitress, human male and female commoners; two chambermaids, human female commoners, and three stable boys, human male commoners. The main buildings in the inn complex are the inn itself, the brewhouse and the combination stable-coachhouse. Vitěslav and Jindřiška live in an apartment on the inn's 3rd story. Their two adult children elsewhere. A few factors account for the inn's relative luxury and prosperity. One is that the Vitěslav and Jindřiška are proud of the house, which has been in Vitěslav's family for four generations. They try to keep it in the best shape possible. Another factor is that Storm Mill is relatively self-sufficient; outside of hard goods, the village produces most of what it needs. Local products are cheaper than those that must be transported from elsewhere. That makes Vitěslav's costs relatively low. Finally, most locals would pay higher prices less often or not at all, which would diminish Vitěslav's business volume and profit margin. As is, he turns a good profit, one that lets him run and maintain a good house.
