The Vagabond Taproom

The Vagabond Taproom is an old log longhouse. The few windows it has are all shuttered against the draft beneath a peaked roof layered with rotting wooden shingles. Anyone near 6’ tall has to duck their heads through the creeky narrow door marked as the entrance…

Inside the Vagabond Taproom is very earthy and low-key. A stamped earthen floor strewn with straw lies beneath your feet. A long bar that can seat 20 is placed down one wall, with a half dozen booths that can seat four along the other. The entrance sits at the corner of the far end of the common room. To your right against the near wall is a large fireplace blazing through a pile of logs. Chains hanging from center of the high vaulted ceiling hold lanterns that spread out a warm yellow light. At the far end of the room a free-swinging door opens leads into the kitchen…

Behind the bar a bearded man with a poor posture and a large gut cleans tankards with a wet rag. His scowl is dampened by the cheerful warm smile of the lone bar maid busily bustling food and drink around the room. There appears to be a dozen large kegs propped up behind the bar providing a healthy selection of ales, beers and meads to the taverns patrons. Each booth in The Vagabond Taproom has a single small candle.
