[nbos] [FM8] Joerdhgardh Map of Week #74 Released
"Mark Oliva"
Mon Sep 3rd, 2012
Vacation time's over, summer officially has another three weeks left and a
month from now the first frost might be on the pumpkins. In other words,
vacation is over and we're back With the 74th Map of the Week. We continue
in the borderlands town of Óđinn's House in the Kingdom of Slovania. This
week we take a look at Skáldar Meet Tavern.

The Skáldar Meet is a small tavern that draws a mysterious combination of
doers and dreamers. The patrons are mostly adventurers who have returned
safely from the draug lands, but also of those who are en route there and
have tales of their own great deeds elsewhere. Never mind whether those
tales are true. There even are very infrequent nights when two or three
visiting rangers from the Northern Circle might pop in and take a dark table
in a corner. Maarit, a 37-year-old human female merchant, owns and operates
the Skáldar Meet. She makes no secret of the fact that she is a native of
Ganndarkahlaamo in Karelenland. However, she does not tell the Slovánska
that she left her homeland with a broken heart after her childless marriage
with a half-elf there crumbled. After that disaster, she entered into the
service of the light elven Prince Lemminkaeinen and agreed to spy for the
Kareli in Odhinn's House. The employees are Pravoslav, a 35-year-old human
male commoner, who works as a waiter, and Ingrid, a 33-year-old human female
commoner wife of a sergeant in the town watch, who doubles as a waitress and
Maarit's cleaning lady.
