The Stuck Chimney
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.
Oh, yes, they smoke here, and even if they wouldn't, the smell is deep in everything, and it would take years to fade away. Some smoke simple cigarettes made of leaves, others have fine cigars, there are common pipes and more exotic smoking accessories. Not all smoke tobacco or the local equivalents, quite a few experiment, and some of the back rooms produce strange smells indeed. New guests may (after almost choking) find their tongues considerably lighter, and heads heavier, even without drinking.
The personnel cares little for the guests; they serve what is asked for, but generally shows interest for only a few select customers. They drink little, leave good tips instead.
The patrons here are mostly higher servants of the rich and noble. Weary after a long and stressing day, they spend their free time here, with ironic remarks on other guests, and their own employers. While gossip can be found, if you listen, the servants know their duty and keep the real secrets for themselves. No one wants to loose a good job, right?

I am admused. It is a little quirk that has filled out the entire place filling it with life
I like the smoking idea a lot. I imagine this place has a fireplace and big smooshy chairs.
Perhaps the patron's family cures different flavors and varieties of pipe leaf or something.
Very, very cool. I love the name (a lot), and the entire idea of having a little smokehouse to stuff into a corner of your town is great. A little short, but the description is very well-worded and certainly rich enough to satisfy.
The name does rock, and the inn is cozy, and the smoke infestation is a nice touch.
If you need a place to talk with the head servant of town's archmage, you could do worse than come here. (Observed in live game! ;) )
Nice catch here. It's simple, yet quite effective in it's purpose. It looks like the perfect backdrop for a meeting. Nice work manfred.
I like this place...I don't think the introduction should be repeated in the body of the text though.
Other than that, its great.
I can drop this place into any of my towns. Nice job
An update after a long time. Forgotten part was fixed!
Cough 4 hack .5 cough.
A cigar bar for the fantasy realm.
I always like more detailed elements, but this sub doesn't scream for them. The setting speaks for itself for the most part, and I like the place.
A simple location. Quite usable as a backdrop for some skulduggery.
