If you are not local or a Soldier, you find yourself fair unwelcome in here.
Halana Shauluth’s $$$
Halana is a retired adventuress, a warrior who fought as a mercenary alongside a dozen dwarven women. After she lost a hand to gangrene following a battle, she came home
and opened this bakery. She sells round, dark brown hardwheat loaves that stand up very well on the trail (2 cp each), and small buns with chopped meat stew cooked into their
centers, a delicacy to equal anything anywhere (three for 1 sp or 4 cp each). Halana has a small selection of good wares, and her prices are moderate to high.
Maerlbar’s Eggs & Fresh Fowl $$
This is a shop full of sawdust, blood, and stinks, where the thin, whining proprietor and his fat, whining wife sell eggs and geese, ducks, chickens, turkeys, and pheasants. All of the
birds are available live, plucked, or light-roasted. Over the counter is a little bamboo cage that contains a golden-hued songbird that Maerlbar swears is a Wizardess of great power,
trapped by spells into the shape ye see her now. Theres a fair selection, but it’s not very clean. Prices are low to moderate.

Halamar’s Horses $$$
At the east end of Beliard is a stable known as Halamars Horses. A stout, white-bearded, retired warrior named Blasko Halamar runs the stables with the aid of a dozen boys. Blasko does a steady trade here, buying tired or lame mounts and draft animals, and selling fresh, rested replacements. Hes full of tales about adventurers, orc ambushes, and treasure. He sells mounts for 25 gp each and draft animals, such as oxen and mules for 20 gp each. If you’re trading up for a fresh animal, he’ll buy yours for 12 gp, and then sell to you for 10 gp more.

per chest, respectively. The warehouses are run by Ahbhaer Mhilshoun.
The Stag at Rest $
The second tavern is a dark, low ceilinged place with a flagstone floor, rough-hewn furniture, and a quiet atmosphere. After a day of work, the townsfolk are usually too tired for more than a few tankards and a little chat, before they stumble home to bed. However, fresh gossip of the world outside will be welcomed eagerly. Particularly, the folk of Draventon always like to hear about the lawlessness and debauchery of the Capital. The only drinks served here are stout (3 cp per tankard), ale (2 cp per tankard), and sugared water (free). A meal is 2 sp, and consists of bread, gravy, and as much as you want from whatever is roasting in the hearth, usually bear, venison or boar. The place is run by an incredibly fat, grayhaired woman, known, oddly enough, as Delgara the Slim. Shes an expert
with a cleaver.
The Tasselway Arms $$
A stay at the Tasselway Arms only costs 7 sp per head per night, and stabling and a good evenfeast meal are thrown in. It is nothing spectacular, but rather a good, solid,
family-run inn that caters to families, honest merchants, and folk of peaceful
intent and manners. The Arms is owned by Edwin Demontouched, a Tiefling wizard of some power, he is a member of the Demontouched family that can trace their linage to Sir Wilhelm Demontouched, the half brother of King David the Third. his settlement here is purly based on the fact that few in the area care bout his demon herritage. he serves as teh Milita captain in the Village as well, and is a Yeoman of the Baron.
