Shadows of Absalom
Vipers Nest Pub and Games
A grey stone house made with rough Cairnlands stone, and covered by a thatched roof, the Viper's Nest is a two-story dwelling which features a pub and bar on the first floor and games of chance, including dice games, including Rickets, card games, especially Three Dragon Ante, baccarat, and Towers. The Viper's dealers are known to be mostly on the up-and-up. Allegedly, there are some darker dealings involving the small but profitable black market going on upstairs in the Viper, but then a nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat, know what I mean? Say no more!
Downstairs, the fare is mostly pub-grub and snacks, the most popular of which are Viper Bytes, which are deep-fried squares of dough and spicy cheese, with a pocket of dark, strong ale in the middle.
The Viper is run by Sieger Blackthorne, an unsavory half-elf from Daggermark with too wide a smile and a habit of constantly cleaning his fingernails with the tip of his masterworked dagger, a black curved dirk he calls 'Fang".
