The House of the Hungry Merchant

Inn in BerDusk.

This former shrine to Waukeen offers poor visitors and beggars of the city a warm bed and a meal. The meal is usually thick beef-and-carrot stew, enlivened by anonymous lumps of
chopped meat and vegetables. The House is a big, drafty barn of a place run by merchant donations.

Traders of either sex and most races are allowed to stay here. The House is staffed by the city guard, who keep a close and constant watch on guests to prevent brawls, thefts, muggings, and the like. All weapons must be surrendered to the staff during a visitors stay.

By city law, six nights at a stretch is the longest a person can stay in the House. Guests who are found to have more than 4 gold pieces worth of coins on their persons are ejected
from the House because it is considered that they can afford their own meals and accommodations.
