Let me tell you a little bit about myself…

Innkeep! That’s what they yell at me. Bring me more ale! Well let them yell. I’ll come along shortly with a smile and a joke. I’m their best mate. Especially if luck’s been blowin their way. Now, I’m no hero. I’d be the first to admit that. Can’t swing a sword. Rubbish with a bow. Nothing magical about me. But we’re not so different, them and I. My heroic and less-than-heroic guests. We’re after the same thing at the end of the day. Glory? Coin! Only, I leave the hacking and slashing beneath the ground to the young and the bold. Cos you see, whatever they unearth down there is gonna get spent. Plenty of the gold makes its way from a dead goblin’s loincloth to my open palm. The way I see it, it’s what some might call “a mutually beneficial arrangement”. After treading the halls of a musty tomb or dungeon filled with horrors a body needs a rest now don’t it? A tankard of ale. A laugh. A good punch up. A bed to sleep in with a reasonably low population of lice. Maybe a lead on the next quest when your purse has inexplicably become much lighter? That’s where I come in. You see I’m a business man. A respectable and upstanding citizen. A provider of various services. I’ll look out for you, now don’t you worry. I’ll make sure your drink aint too strong if you’ve had a few too many already. Maybe some company for the night for those feeling lonesome? Let me help you with that load there. Kick back. Relax. I’ll take care of everything.
