I’ve just released a new product! It’s another entry in my RPG locations series, providing further depth for any game set in the City of Splendors.
In celebration, here’s a free bonus location.
The Steadfast Sturgeon
Dock Ward – Tavern and Inn
The doors of the nearby tavern are thrown open to the thoroughfare. Through the open portal you can hear the booming voice of the bartender, narrating some adventure or other to his audience.
“So there we were, cornered on the top deck as the Sea Devils stalked forward.”
The Sturgeon (as she is more colloquially known) is a three story row house that has been converted into a very traditional inn and tavern. The proprietor, Arthur Cobbleston, lives on the top floor having divided the second floor into rooms for rent and the main floor into a cozy taproom and restaurant.
Arthur was once first mate on a ship that sailed all throughout the Moonshae’s and Sword Coast. He collected many trinkets and oddities throughout his journeys, and enjoys sharing stories with anyone who will listen.
Arthur hasn’t been telling the full story of his tales. Turns out he was actually mate on a Pirate Ship, known for bloody raids throughout the Isles of the Moonshae. Several of his old shipmates have recently appearing in Waterdeep, and are hiding out in the Sturgeon, with threats of exposing Arthur’s history. Things are complicated when an agent of King Derid from Caer Callidyrr shows up in Waterdeep, hunting for one of the relics Arthur and his shipmates stole from the King’s Niece.
