Stormhaven Siren Song
The Doublecross Tavern is one of Stormhaven’s more rambunctious drinking establishments. It’s location, (right on the waterfront) ensures it the (un)enviable position of being the first port of call for any sailors, sea-hags, surfriders, pirates, mermen, dryads, water-wizards, island-dwellers or other seafaring visitor to the city.
Due to wide-range of clientele, and to the fact that many find the tavern before finding their bearings around the city, many an altercation can kick off within the Doublecross. It’s not unknown for arguments between sailors of rival ships to spill from the decks of the ships to the boards of the jetty and from there directly into the Tavern.
The only “official” law enforcement comes from whichever guards the Seafarers guild feels like having patrol the area on any given day. Owing to the fact that Glint the bartender would rather handle security himself though, any guild guards that do find their way into the doublecross quickly find themselves growing increasingly intoxicated as they’re plied with drinks by Glint and the barstaff.
Unofficial law enforcement comes from Grunt and Galeena, two Orcs that Glint pays to uphold some semblance of peace and quiet within his bar. As the Orcish definition of “peace and quiet” differs somewhat from the human definition, this can mean that nights at the Doublecross tend to be a little more exciting than at rival establishments.
