[nbos] [FM8] Joerdhgardh Map of Week #135 Released
"Mark Oliva"
Sun Dec 15th, 2013
With the 135th Map of the Week we take a look at Pavel's Mill, a derelict
village on the River Storming in Grainland County that hardly would exist if
it wasn't for the 3200-man military garrison there.

Key to the Floor Plan of the Millstream Inn

The Millstream Inn has one of the largst footprints among Slovanian
hostelries. Its foundation – 100 x 40 feet/30 x 12 m – traces back to the
ruins of the old AEsir Landamaera Veitingahús (Border Inn) that stood where
the Mill-stream Inn now is. However, the AEsir hostelry was quite a bit
smaller than Vendelin's inn. Where there now is a kitchen, the AEsir had a
horse stable for visitors' mounts. The 2nd story of this 30-foot/9-m wing
on the inn's north side was a hay loft. Only the southern 70 feet/21 m
served as a public room, with guest rooms on the 2nd story.

When the county military claimed the ruin and restored it, the entire ground
floor was turned into a mess hall and kitchen, somewhat like the current
layout. There were plans to turn the 2nd story into officers' quarters, but
these never were realized. The 2nd story remained empty until Sáva bought
and remodeled the building. He constructed the guest rooms in much the
manner that we find them today.

In the years after Sáva's death, the inn became rundown again, with its
condition deteriorating until the current owner – Vendelin – acquired it.
He repaired and restored it, making it into a comfortable but non-luxurious
hostelry, and he added a 3rd story to the complex, which includes his
apartment and three rental apartments.

Ground Floor:

1. Kitchen.

2. Trapdoor to Storage Cellar (not mapped).

3. Beer tap.

4. Public Room.

5. Main Entrance.

6. Common Jakes. These are the jakes for users of the public room, guestes
on the 2nd story and the aparment dwellers on the 3rd story.

7. Side Entrance for Guests and Dwellers in the 3rd Story Apartments. The
door opposite this one, which opens onto the public room, is locked during
hours when the public room is closed.

8. Stairs to 2nd Story.

2nd Story:

8. Stairs to Ground Floor.

9. Stairs to 3rd Story Apartments. The door at the top of the stairs
always is locked. (The 3rd story has not been mapped.)

10. Guest Rooms. The numbers in parentheses are the room numbers.

11. Bath. A bath costs two bronze pieces. The chamber maids prepare it.

12. Broom Closet.
