The Hungry Hound

The Hungry Hound is a famous pub in Bradstowe, captial city of The Isles of Orlend.   The pub is situated in The Architect's District of the city and is just on the southern side of Old Bridge and is speculated to be one of the oldest pubs in the entire city.   The Hungry Hound serves many patrons but is also a headquarters for The Spunkhearts Guild, a group of hearty, hedonistic adventurers. They came into the posession of the pub after saving the day during the events of The Rupture some fifty years ago, which caused riftbeasts to invade all of Melior (including the city of Bradstowe).   The fearless Spunkhearts were able to fend off Magic weidling nightmare-beasts whilst still not spilling a drip from their pint glasses. The owner lost his sons out in the streets that day, and so as a token of his grief and gratitude - handed the ownership of The Hungry Hound on to them (on the condition that they protect it with their lives, and make to never have cheap swill on tap).   The Hound has a few rooms upstairs for guests, and the attic hosts three rooms of permanent guild residence. Hot food is served from noon until sunset, and beverages are served until sunrise.

Hot food only until sunset? But..but what if you were fighting Riftbeasts until 9?? :O   And between sunset and sunrise, how does the Hound avoid the...unpleasantness...that comes with patrons drinking on an empty stomach?

Ah yes, a wonderful business model. Give the tavern over to the people who fight monsters and don't spill their drinks. Wonderful little snippet, as usual.

You should check out the The 5 Shudake, if you want of course.

Aw, I really like the history of the tavern, though I question the previous owner's decision making skills. XD Seems to be working out for them, I guess.
