Near the docks district of Fairwind is an area with half a dozen taverns and inns. The names range from the upscale Dancing Gryphon to the seedy Staggering Wench. In the very middle of this spectrum is the imaginatively named Gerund Animal.
This tavern is an affordable but reasonably clean establishment catering to the less affluent merchants and more discerning sailors. The beer is strong, the beds are free of lice, and the food is palatable.
