The interior of the taphouse is warm in every respect: a great firepit dominates the center of the main room, surrounded by trestle tables on all four sides. Round tables with red coverings cluster around a small stage where one of the local minstrels is plying her trade, singing a local epic and strumming a lyre. The far wall is dominated by a bar flanked by crimson tapestries, each embroidered with gold thread and depicting images of Khor'minoan heroes and mythic beasts brawling — imagery straight from local legend. The other walls are decorated with frescoes, huge illustrations of salamanders wielding flaming spears and hammers.



Interactions for the taphouse go through Vitra, the barkeep for the establishment. You can Get Food to heal the party and grant Well Fed for six hours, or Get Drink for a boon.
