The Maudlin Maul is a well-know inn located in the city of Westcrown.The innkeeper, Jared Redland, loves hearing good music and listening incredible tales.
He invites all minstrels and bards to give performances in his establishment. Since he pays them well (3 gp), he gets the best ones for the pleasure of his clients. Jared is also a fierce guild master. He built a secret room in the roof of his establishment to hold secret meetings. Reunions are held late at night. During the meeting, all participants are requested to whisper so their voice could not be listening. The inn has 4 rooms to rent (5 sp per day).
In the entrance there is a target to throw knifes. The rules of the game are easy. Each participant has 5 knifes to throw; magical knifes are prohibited. The thrower is placed behind a white line on the ground standing away from the target by 10 feet. The center of the target, the red zone (AC 30) gives 10 points and a free throw, the yellow zone (AC 25) gives 5 points, the green zone (DC 20) gives 3 points, and the white zone (AC 15) gives 1 point. The participant who gets the more points wins the game. The record of 215 points is held by Jared himself.
A2. Main Room (called the feast room) A large room where people could eat or just drink while listening good music or stories. The inn has beer (4 cp), hydromel (2 sp), hippocras (spicy wine; 4 sp), wine (2 sp) and fine wine bottles (10 gp). There is always a beef stew on fire (1 sp) and the innkeeper could also prepare good meals as deer (5 sp).
