Jon's Rise of the Runelords Campaign
The White Deer
This building is fairly new having been recently rebuilt after the old inn burnt down in the same fire that destroyed the original Sandpoint Cathedral. Run by a quiet Shoanti man, Garridan Viskalai, he keeps the prices of his rooms and board low to match the Rusty Dragon despite his rooms being much cleaner and more spacious. Garridan is the brother of Sheriff Belor Hemlock.
Known as much for Risa Magravi’s tales of ancient legends and myths as for its spiced potatoes and cider. It’s a favorite of the locals if only because of its out-of-the-way location ensures strangers rarely come by. Risa operated the tavern for the first 30 years of Sandpoint’s history but now she’s gone mostly blind and leaves most of the day to day affairs to her 3 children, Besk, Lanalee, and Vodger.
A favorite of patrons of the Sandpoint Theater because of a large stage for performances. Owner Jesk “Cracktooth” Berinni looks like a thug but he’s well read and posses a scathing wit.
One of Sandpoint’s most popular taverns among fishermen and gamblers. It is owned by a gregarious one-legged man named Jargie Quinn. It is named for the Varisian hagfish named Norah that lives in the large glass aquarium behind the bar. Anyone that drinks a tankard of “water” from Norah’s tank wins a leather pouch bulging with coins. It costs a silver to try and if you can keep it down, you keep however many coins have accumulated in the pouch. This tavern also has numerous games from dice to cards to darts.
Sandpoint’s most notorious tavern. Here bar fights are common as most of the clientele are less than reputable. Owned by Gressel Tenniwar, this tavern is oftern visited by Sheriff Hemlock to sort out fights and arrest Sczarni thugs.
