Places of Note
The Griffon’s Nest Inn and Tavern
Proprietor: Sarel Bankdown
The Griffon’s Nest is a three story building of wood and stone famous for its balcony dining. The image of a griffon rampant facing a clutch of eggs adorns the sign-board hanging over the front entrance.
[OOC: See the table under “Food, Drink, and Lodging” in the Player’s Handbook (p. 222) for prices.]
Tolm’s Superior Outfitting and Dry Goods
Proprietor: Kheldegan Tolm
Tolm’s shop is well-known for quality goods and fair prices. He supplies the population with mundane equipment for mining and farming, but he also carries a few more exotic items of interest to those with the coin to purchase them.
[OOC: Anything in the Player’s Handbook under Adventuring Gear (p. 221-222) and wondrous items from approved sources (see Bibliography) can be found in this shop for the cost indicated on the appropriate table.]
Priestess: Sister Alonsa
The temple of Moradin also serves as the biggest ironworks shop in Blasingdell. When Sister Alonsa isn’t preaching to her flock, she is working the bellows or handling a hammer at the massive forge adjoining the chapel. The forge is known to produce some enchanted arms and armor on commission.
[OOC: Simple and Military weapons as well as heavy armors are available here at the prices indicated in the Player’s Handbook. Enchanted items can be commissioned and take about a day to complete.]
Proprietor: Ashrem Dewitt
This odd wooden tower houses a surprisingly robust library, opened to the public years ago by the retired warrior mage Ashrem Dewitt. The inside is garishly painted but well appointed with comfortable chairs and ample reading corners.
[OOC: Ritual books, scrolls, and components can be found in this establishment for the costs indicated on the tables in their respective sources.]
