 +=== Alehorn Patrons === 
 + 
 +**Alston Stumbleduck** is a Gnomish bard who regularly plays the Alehorn. He is average height for a gnome, with well quaffed blond hair and a robin-hood-esque goatee and handlebar mustache. He sings and plays both the lute and the hurdy-gurdy,​ and greatly enjoys elven wines. He travels between the nearby towns and cities and will usually only be in one place for a week or so. 
 + 
 +**Jheri Drachedandion**,​ or Jheri Broken-Fang,​ is a large dragonborn with bright bronze scales. She stands slightly smaller than most dragonborn, at about 6'​1"​ and bears a scar that gave her her nickname, a large gash running across the left side of her snout that broke several fangs and gave her a bit of a permanent scowl. She never talks about her background, but the most common rumors are she was either a pirate and retired, was a highly paid mercenary, or found wealth in the yaun-ti ruins to the north. She likes to drink spiced wines and meads, and loves to try the different cheeses the Alehorn brings in. 
 + 
 +**Sir Alistair Brighton** is a former captain of the town guard. Still strong of build and with salt and pepper hair, he likes to spend his evenings at the Alehorn watching the bards and other entertainment while drinking fine liqueur. 
 + 
 +**[[https://​i.pinimg.com/​736x/​d4/​13/​cb/​d413cb901818c0d794498ff5bac6302d.jpg|Amber Fireforge]]** is a freckled redheaded mountain dwarf, and one of Tessia'​s best friends. Amber owns a smithy (known as Fireforged) in Thanes landing, and loves to come to the Alehorn to eat, drink, and forget about the stresses of the day. She is still considered young and lively at 60 years of age, and will drink just about any beer you put in front of her.(but she does have a penchant for beers of her mountain kin) 
 + 
 +**Thamior Strongbow** is a half elf ranger who hunts the forests around Thanes landing. He is of average build, with medium length, well groomed silver hair. He usually drinks wine, but his guilty pleasure is dwarven spirits. 
 + 
 +**Grubs** is a assumedly homeless gnome. No one is sure how he gets the money to drink as much as he does, but he always has enough money to get pleasantly drunk off bottom shelf booze. He gets thrown out regularly, but always ends up back at the bar.
  
 ==== Taverns ==== ==== Taverns ====
Line 20: Line 38:
  
 The **Silver Goose** is a huge single-floor establishment,​ popular with locals, attracting a wide spectrum of patrons, including families. This is partly because it is run by a couple with seven children, all of whom help out with some aspect of running the tavern. It's a boisterous, upbeat place; always slightly chaotic but in a warm way. The **Silver Goose** is a huge single-floor establishment,​ popular with locals, attracting a wide spectrum of patrons, including families.

 +
 +The **Alehorn** is run by a minotaur family, and offers upper-scale food and drinks. They'​re well known for the organized fights that occur behind the tavern. Some of their most expensive drinks include a 1375 Sword Coast cabernet and a dwarven double-distilled whiskey.
 +
 +The **Silver Heron** up the street is run by Anna Fairchild, a large tiefling woman, and famous for its fish.
  
 **Whiteoak Tavern** is one of the better taverns in the city, but it really comes alive at night. The upper rooms are often reserved by private parties, who often get increasingly boisterous as the night goes on, which is usually matched or exceeded by the atmosphere downstairs. Regular patrons talk of a competition between upstairs and downstairs over who has the better (and louder) night. The servers are all well-constructed flesh golems in maid outfits. **Whiteoak Tavern** is one of the better taverns in the city, but it really comes alive at night.

 The **Goblin Queen** is another larger inn run entirely by goblins. While goblins are often the target of fear and mistrust, these goblins are hard-working and honest. Two call themselves the Goblin King and Goblin Queen; the King is responsible for ordinary guests while the Queen takes care of special guests. Prices here are quite reasonable and accommodations straightforward but comfortable. The **Goblin Queen** is another larger inn run entirely by goblins.
