The Penance of Duty
The Prancing Sage
There are now two taverns in Herenton, but this was the first, and is still by far the most popular.
Run by the redoubtable Callista Ashmore, it’s a two-story building (plus cellar, of course) situated prominently on the main road into town. There’s a sizable list of services available – the requisite food & drinks, as well as couriers within the town, scribing services in four different languages (translations also available), equipment maintenance and repair, and an open-posting job board. In short, the Prancing Sage is the unofficial main hub of commerce in the town.
It’s a happy place to be, but they take their rules seriously, since they’re located near the guardhouse, and thus the tavern of choice for guardsmen.
