Path of Heroes
The earthy scent of hay and manure is strong in this wide building. The whinny of horses and the snort of oxen indicates that the building houses many beasts of burden. Carts, wagons, and other transports are also parked nearby.
Mounts can be kept here for 2 sp per day. Riding horses can also be bought and sold at the stables. Darden, Dred, and Drer: These three dwarf brothers own the stables. They are the sons of Garwan, who owns Garwan’s Curiosities. They manage the facility and employ several assistants who feed, water, brush, clean, and care for the animals.
Roleplaying Opportunities: The brothers often grouse about their cousin, Zark. Darden in particular wonders how Zark has come so suddenly into money when he never appears to work and has no skill at cards or luck with dice. Darden expresses concern that Zark has gotten mixed up with Loudwater’s criminals, possibly with the Lady of Shadow’s gang. See page 17 for more information on Zark.
