MARKET DISTRICT
“A toast to brave adventurers, just
returned from the Ruklands to the north!
Hail Law!”
—George Manes
Location: Southeast side of the city.
Neighborhoods: Middle-class and lowerclass.
Common Businesses: Any.
Watch Presence: Moderate (Day); Low
(Night).
Things to Remember: The Market District
is where the citizens of Dolmvay come for
entertainment, strange sights, and low prices.
Think haggling in the open market, brightly
colored clothing, fluttering banners, street
vendors hawking their wares, street performers,
and foreign merchants from all over Amherth.
Market Gate
The Market Gate provides entry to the
Market District and opens directly onto the
chaos of the Dolmvay Market. The Dolmvay
Road passes through the Market Gate and is
used mainly by farmers and herders to
transport livestock and goods to the city.
Dolmvay Market
The Dolmvay Market lies just inside the
Market Gate. It is a sprawling selection of open
streets, fountain squares, auction blocks,
livestock corrals, and vendor’s stalls, boxed in
by permanent shops, inns, and taverns. The
market bustles with activity throughout the day,
but quiets down considerably at night.
Inn of the Red Flagon
This large, modern inn is frequented mainly
by adventurers and prospective employers. It is
a four-story structure with a fenced courtyard
44
and stables out back, and a cellar below. The
first floor consists of a common taproom and
kitchens. The second floor contains private
quarters and common sleeping chambers. The
third and fourth floors contain quality guest
accommodations.
The Red Flagon common room provides a
variety of entertainment including minstrels,
poets, dancing fools, and animal shows. The
taproom is lined with adventuring trophies such
as maps of far off lands, foreign clothing, and
exotic weapons and armor. A shrine and statue
of St. Ronnad of the Flagon is located near the
main fireplace.
The Inn of the Red Flagon serves Good
quality meals. Their most famous drink is the
Red Dragon, a heady brew that is lit on fire and
served in the tavern’s signature red flagon. The
tavern is owned and operated by George
Manes.
The Pig Whistle
The Pig Whistle is one of the few pork
slaughterhouses allowed outside of the Guild
District. This is because the pigs are kept
penned in large, filthy, underground chambers
that adjoin the sewers. The ground floor of the
Pig Whistle is a butcher shop that sells excellent
cuts of pork. The Pig Whistle is owned and
operated by the wereboar Borlen Thammer.
The Painted Wheel
The Painted Wheel is a wainwright’s shop
owned and operated by the halfling Tobias
Quiggley. The shop is a two-story building that
consists of a small office on the first floor and a
cramped apartment on the second floor. A barnlike
workshop occupies an open courtyard out
back. Tobias builds and repairs wagons, carts,
and carriages and there are 1d6 wagons and
carts being worked on at any given time. When
necessary, Tobias contracts local artists to
adorn expensive, custom-made wagons and
carriages with paintings and carvings.
Orphanage of St. Lucilla
This fenced compound is owned and
operated by the Church of Law and Order. Its
mission is to house, feed, and educate
Dolmvay’s orphans in order to help them
reintegrate into society and become active
members of the church. The orphanage’s
reputation has been marred by negligence and
corruption and it has gone through several
periods of reform.
The Open Temple
The Open Temple is a three-story curio shop
owned and operated by Abah the Dealer. The
shop specializes in foreign goods and contains
an assortment of exotic artwork, weapons,
armor, clothing, and household items (lamps,
furniture, tableware, etc.) from all over
Amherth. Adventurers who frequent the shop
have occasionally uncovered a rare magic item
mixed in with normal items on display. Abah
lives in a small cottage in the shop’s backyard.
Trep’s Footwear
This cobbler’s shop is located on Shoe Street
amid several other rival cobblers’ shops. The
first floor contains a display room in front with a
workshop in the rear and a cellar below. The
second floor contains the private quarters of
Neason Trep.
