OOC: Obligatory inn scene
You stopped at the Fair Maiden Inn for the night. There's a tavern on the first floor and rooms on the second floor. The barkeep is a portly gnome by the name of Gander, a retired Illusionist. There's 3 serving maids, a female dwarf (Lucinda), a female half-orc (Beaut), and an elderly female goblin (Granny). The tavern is half full when you arrive. You can see that it can seat about 50 patrons. There's a fireplace on one wall (unlit) and the bar on the opposite wall. A staircase leads up to the upper floor in the back. There's a doorway behind the bar leading to the kitchen. On the wall beside the front door is a poster board with various wanted posters and other notices.
