Rise of the Demomancer
The Iron Oak is the sole public house in Carlstow. Savaric is its publican, with Wymarc operating her brewery in the building and Hallny working as cook. The pub is a large building parked right beside the High Road, the popular trade route that leads to Gereberge, the capitol city. It is large enough to straddle the Grau River, providing a unique scenic look at the environment and the town.
Traders and adventurers look forward to returning to the Iron Oak en route to further travels or to rest and recuperate after a prolonged journey. A storyteller at heart, Savaric takes much pleasure in encouraging his patrons to relax and share their experiences around the hearth. Likewise, this is a good opportunity to promote Wymarc’s house specialty, Carstow Rye Amber, as it’s soon to be presented to the king for royal sponsorship.
The king’s tither, Hakon, comes to the Iron Oak when his guard is understaffed or ill-equipped to securely escort the semiannual tithes back to the capitol city. Further, he relies on the insight and counsel of Savaric and Wymarc to choose reliable hirelings, as he mistrusts his own judgment. The Iron Oak is the hub of information and unusual employment opportunities for the region.
