Rampant Griffon Inn

The Rampant Griffon Inn is a waystation on the northern coast of the Emerald Way in Ameo, located along the southern edge of the Plains of the Golden Paw, north and west of Westport, east of Sinclair.   Because of its location, the Inn serves as a common stopping place for trade caravans and adventurers. Its popularity has allowed it to expand in size from a hunting lodge to a walled thorpe.

Purpose / Function

The Rampant Griffon Inn began its existence as a hunting lodge located along the northern edge of the River Ameo ford. From the lodge, hunters would trek north into the Plains of the Golden Paw or west into the Giantwood Forest in search of game. It first became a waystation when traders began to come north from Westport on their way toward Sinclair and points beyond.   After the fall of the Ameo noble family, the Inn continued to act as a waystation for caravans traveling north and south along the coast.


The main lodge has grown significantly over time, rising as a three-story wood building in the center of the compound. The main floor is dominated by a common room of immense size (50 ft x 30 ft), the kitchens, and several small (5 ft x 5 ft), cheap rooms. The second floor is comprised of moderately-sized (10 ft x 5 ft), closets and bathing rooms (5 ft x 5 ft), heated by the kitchen fires below. The top floor is reserved for the most discerning customers and comprises of two massive (25 ft x 15 ft) rooms, each with their own bath chamber. The basement acts as a larder, dry storage, and secure storage. Outbuildings provide stables for horses not kept in the paddock, a blacksmith shop, and general store as well as quarters for the permanent residents and staff.
