Madam Pernouds Alehouse

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.

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.

The selection at the bar is worse than poor. Watered down Orc-Piss ale, old grog, and soured wine are the only drinks available. There are a good number of whores at the alehouse, most are bored, hooked on potions, and drugs. There is a single room upstairs that the whores will use for some clients, but goin'upstaars costs extra. Most would prefer to handle their...ahem...affairs down at the bar.

The establishment is frequented by the pariahs, beggars and lowest of city dwellers. Thieves and criminals ply their trades in secrecy, using Pernouds as a front to launder money, set up meetings, and as a safe house. Informants also frequent the place, passing on their information unnoticed.

After leaving Pernouds, PCs should feel dirty, even if they didnt even sit down. If they sampled the ladies of the house, seeing a healer or apothecary wouldnt be a bad idea. Nothing at Pernouds is clean.

Short, Sweet, Direct, with dramatic elements that you can hang on to. One Paw!

It ain't a real town, if it ain't have an establishment of this kind.

One of the things that you can and want to paste into your setting without any consideration.

Solid location ready for insertion into a setting. Locations are the backbone of any setting and not all could or should be 5.0 ones. We need locations such as these to add believability, so take this 3 with honour for there is no disgrace in it.

Now that is the best description of a generic "dive" I've seen in a LONG time

Love it - 3.5/5

Ancient Gamer: Solid location ready for insertion into a setting.

The best choice of words by far.

I like it. Dirty city settings always are best visited at night when playing so the feeling matches what is being described. I like it.

A few questions however. Who is the owner? How long has it been there? Any exciting events happen there? Like did it burn down in a barfight only to be rebuilt back on the same spot exactly the way it was prior?

Hmmm... well, as for 'exciting events' there could be a failure of a bard playing now and then, to repay his drinking debts.

Short, yet solid, concise, and fun. You didn't waste any words here, and the form of the description really fits the blunt and make-no-amends nature of the tavern. Still, even though it's such a crap place, the description was so fun to read that I feel like poking my head in, just for kicks.

I see what you did there..
