Where to find

Text

...with the dust of their journey still clinging to boot and cloak, the canny traveller will no doubt seek to secure accommodation within the city, post-haste. Below are some establishments that are typical of what the city has to offer:


The Blade and Stars

Easily identified by its sign - a wooden shield boasting a curved blade against a field of stars...


[A handwritten scrawl in the margins notes that the sign is currently not in place.]


...this inn is comfortable, quiet, and highly recommended for travellers seeking to recuperate from their journey. Expect unassuming fare at a reasonable price, moderately clean rooms, and passably clean patrons.


The Blushing Mermaid

For those seeking an altogether rowdier night in the city, The Blushing Mermaid should be the first port of call. Named for the life-sized wooden mermaid on display, this inn is known for its ill-reputed patrons, frequent brawls, and altogether unsavoury reputation. Nevertheless, I feature it here owing to great interest from my readership. I can only advise that you exercise extreme vigilance should you choose this establishment.


Elfsong Tavern

[Most of this passage is illegible due to water damage, apart from the words and phrases nearest to the inner margins.]


...dimly-lit...

...proprietor, Alan...

...disembodied Elvish singing voice...
