Guild Stations are found in almost every town and city. They serve several functions. They have distinctive red doors and a lamp that is always kept burning to its right.
The front room is a counter with a stool and a few chairs hanging about. There is always a scribe or two hanging about, looking to pick up a job scribing a message.
Older Red Caps are stationed as these Stations and their larger cousins Homes. While not able to handle the rigors of the road, they can still put in a day of work. These silver belled capped fellows organize their runners, take in messages, and keep the station in supplies.
In the back, guild stations are small mini-inns for RedCaps. It is a place where they can catch a meal and a few hours rest, perhaps even trade in their horse for a fresh one. Most Red Caps do not travel too far from their station, as most people send messages short distances. Other Red Caps specialize in messages along certain routes. Certain runners only take messages to nobles or certain guilds. There is no hard and fast rule, it is who ever comfortable with the run and who is available.
