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.

       By: CaptainMayday

When running a new party, get around the question of plot density by having the first discovery to be a deck of fate, or whatever you call it. If you use a real deck, you should definitely stack it to have the desired outcome, which is to curse the party to attract weird things to happen and involve them. This should not be told to the players at the time, so that they won't just up and try to get themselves 'decursed'. Though quite why they would want to is beyond me.
