Chaos Scar in the Nentir Vale
The Stumbling Giant
In contrast to the cheap, crude accommodations at the Travelers Inn, the Stumbling Giant is the social center of the outer bailey. Most folk of the outer bailey can be found here at least once a week, gathered over mugs of Mother Aran’s Stout and swapping tales, spreading gossip, and arguing about the topic of the day. A huge fireplace heats the common room, while a few booths offer space for private discussions. It under the direct orders of Lord Drysdale, the warriors of the inner bailey are not allowed to enter the Stumbling Giant. Here, in the social heart of the keep, their absence speaks volumes; a sign of the growing rift within the keep.
- Mother Aran: Following in the footsteps of her parents and their parents before her, Mother Aran runs a tight ship at the Stumbling Giant. Her secret family recipes for both food and drink have kept residents and visitors to the keep well fed for many years. Generous and friendly, she sees herself as a grandmother to all who come into her tavern.
