The Jewel of the East
Green Tankard Tavern
A sign with a green-painted tankard of ale proclaims the nature of this establishment. The tavern’s large common room holds a gregarious group that includes townspeople, riverboat folk, merchants, farmers, and one or two individuals wearing the badges of the Loudwater Patrol.
Called simply “the Tankard” by locals (as well as its proprietor Marsh Laval), this roomy inn and tavern serves as the public house for the southern portion of Loudwater. The Tankard offers beer, spirits, and a variety of expensive wines. Meals are available throughout the day, and rooms can be rented for overnight stays. Regulars and travelers alike gather each day to drink, gossip, sing, and engage in games of chance.
