The Dreadwood Tavern
A Promise of Pickled Gnome
The liquor is stocked. The beds are made. The tables are set and the stew in the kitchen is bubbling away. The stables are empty; the hay is fresh. Everything and everyone is ready for the grand opening.
Everyone, that is, except the guests.
Advertisement decrying the tavern is being circulated in the nearby town that the inn is harmful for the native rocs. These leaflets were created by a competing tavern in the area, the Pickled Gnome. Upon being confronted the owner of that that tavern, a kobold named Yraalik, agreed to cease distribution. Additionally, they accepted an offer to include mention of the Doomed Bowl with their own materials for 6 months in return for the retrieval of an idol from the Gauntlet, a nearby abandoned kobold construction.
