[nbos] [FM8] Joerdhgardh Map of Week #115 Released
"Mark Oliva"
Sun Jun 30th, 2013
I have to backtrack on my announcement last week. I noticed that today is a
5th Sunday in June, so ... we owe you one more map before going on vacation.

With the 115th Map of the Week , we take a look at the Fjoerm House Tavern
in the Slovanian city of Mine Docks. The Fjoerm House is a pleasant tavern
for those who are welcome there, but that's a somewhat select group of
people. It caters to traders and many of those who are in the middle and
upper levels of the transportation business. Raftsmen, dock workers,
warehouse workers and teamsters seldom enter the Fjörm House. Their hangout
is the Water Rat Tavern (Our next release, in August). Tavernkeep and owner
Ludvik, a 55-year-old human male merchant, treasures and respects his
customers, those who are local and those who travel frequently to Minadoka.
He understands that they want their privacy and the ability to talk out of
the reach of prying ears. If unknown strangers enter the building, even at
a time when few customers are present, Ludvik will tell them that all tables
are reserved; they should go elsewhere. It is not wise to challenge him on
this point. Ludvik is a somebody who is under the baron's protection.
Ludvik's wife and brewwife Ingrid, a 52-year-old human female master alewife
and artisan, always is there but out of sight in the kitchen. If strangers
make trouble in the house, she will slip out and get the city watch. If the
troublemakers still are around when the watch arrives, they can plan on
spending at least a week in the jail beneath city hall. When their time in
jail is up, they'll be tossed out of town. In the communal brewing house,
Ingrid brews a top-fermented stout dark ale once weekly. It sells only in
the Fjörm House, for 2 copper pieces per pint/half liter tankard. The Fjörm
House serves no food, only ale. It has no waiters or waitresses. One must
pick up one's tankard at the tap and pay immediately. Ludvik and Ingid live
in an apartment on the second story.
