Silver Chalice    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

The Silver Chalice is the shop (and market stall) where Fredius Cancian of Amar sells his fine wines.  His wines are a bit pricey, but worth the cost as they are generally better than the local wines. (note: He sells finer local wines as well, just they are few and far between).

The Stuck Chimney    Locations  (Establishment)   (Other)

Long ago it was the ‘Sleeping Bull’ or something, but everybody calls it The Chimney nowadays. All because of the atmosphere, it is thicker than the soup they serve here, as some patrons like to claim.

The Full Goblet    Locations  (Establishment)   (Other)

The Full Goblet is a modest-sized, working-class tavern (public house), run by Hilgar.  Hilgar is a bit over the hill and shabby, as is the general establishment.  However, good solid fare at a decent value, and a regular and noisy clientele, keep the place in business, and the bar is also well-situated to bring in travellers.

Madam Pernouds Alehouse    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

Located in the lower part of the community, Pernouds is the epitome of sleazey establishments. The floors are dirty and smell of excretement, urine, and worse. The chairs are ramshackle built, and the tables are all in poor shape.

Chrisia's ShadowShop    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

It is a colorful shop, full of dolls, puppets, mannequins, small statues, and other things that are just "shadows" of a human. That is what this shop sells.

Alanus's General Store    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

It was a single store that sold a variety of good made by a variety of people. It was such a novel concept that most people will dislike it. "It is just not the way we do things around here", they would say. Yet they still buy things here.

Argus's Cart / a Blue Cart    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

Argus is like most of the carter’s in the city. He works out of one of the inns, where they actually prepare the food. (It is loaded into the cart there and kept warm by stoked coals and ash.) The Blue Rose carts are served by a consortium of inns, while a bit more expensive than standard cart food is well worth the price.

Cashmirius's    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

Cashmirius’s is one of the finest cafes in the city.  It is does not have a large indoor seating area. The small tables with their crisp creme linens are crowded with stools.  If you sit inside, the host will often sit other people you don’t know at your table.  This is great for meeting new people, but it is tough if you are trying to have a private talk.

Establishments    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

Every city, town, or large village will have businesses. Some will be inns, some stores, some people providing a service. They are all places for characters to get what they need, spend money, and a chance for the GM to hook the PCs into a new plotline.  So we are looking for distinct establishments, ready to be pushed in a not-yet-complete place.

The devil's wind. Explains why people become crazy. They are caught up in this wind which steals their sanity which in turn feeds the wind. The wind is a leftover from when the air elementals banded together in a mass army at one point to attack the True Gods. The wind is leftover of their attack route and on the anniversary of the battle the wind sweeps through causing the madness.
