[nbos] [FM8] Joerdhgardh Map of Week #132 Released"Mark Oliva" Sun Nov 24th, 2013
With the 132nd Map of the Week we take a look at the Three Rivers Inn in
Stormmill, the county seat of Slovania's tropical Grainland County.
Key to the Three Rivers Inn Floor Plans
The Three Rivers Inn is a relatively luxurious hostelry, despite the fact
that it is not expensive. It also is the only inn in town. It is owned by
the 48-year-old human male merchant Vitehslav. His wife, the 46-year-old,
Jindrzhishka, a human female artisan, is both the chief cook and alewife.
In the kitchen, she prepares a variety of dishes that range from local beef
to fowl to freshwater fish from the Vichr. Meals run from 4 to 9 bronze
pieces. In the brewhouse, she makes a delicious, light and golden
top-fermented ale that sells for 2 copper pieces per pint/half-liter
tankard. The inn's guest rooms, all with double beds. cost 7 bronze pieces
per person nightly. Vitehslav and Jindrzhishka employ a bookkeeper, a human
female merchant; a journeyman cook, a human male artisan; an apprentice
cook, a human female commoner; a waiter and waitress, human male and female
commoners; two chambermaids, human female commoners, and three stable boys,
human male commoners. The main buildings in the inn complex are the inn
itself, the brewhouse and the combination stable-coachhouse. Vitehslav and
Jindrzhishka live in an apartment on the inn's 3rd story. Their two adult
children elsewhere. A few factors account for the inn's relative luxury and
prosperity. One is that the Vitehslav and Jindrzhishka are proud of the
house, which has been in Vitehslav's family for four generations. They try
to keep it in the best shape possible. Another factor is that Storm Mill is
relatively self-sufficient; outside of hard goods, the village produces most
of what it needs. Local products are cheaper than those that must be
transported from elsewhere. That makes Vitehslav's costs relatively low.
Finally, most locals would pay higher prices less often or not at all, which
would diminish Vitehslav's business volume and profit margin. As is, he
turns a good profit, one that lets him run and maintain a good house.
