The Tiny Cat

The best and only Tavern and Inn in Margay!
-Englebertha Girdz- Owner
Englebertha Girdz and Her husband Mervin built Margay's only Tavern during a particularly difficult winter. Mervin earned the coin needed to turn their home into the local watering hole during the "Wishy Fishy" craze that briefly swept the country. While Mervin says it is just another way to make money the truth is he just wanted to make his wife happy. Englebertha loves cooking and taking care of all that come through the door. She is not afraid to remove anyone that ruins the joyful atmosphere she tries to always maintain. Often times she will give free stays and even food to weary travelers much to her husbands chagrin. Englebertha's adopted daughter Strawberry helps keep things clean and takes care of horses in the attached stables. More recently, Vadania Siannodel has been helping entertain guest with her natural viol, signing, and dancing skills. Englebertha rarely closes shop except on the 1st of every month when she holds the monthly meeting of the town "volunteer" watch. Like most Taverns, as long as the food and drink are plentiful, the coin is too.

I really love the menu that you have and the CSS on this page!, Do want to know more about who works here and the other staff members. Overall a good article!

Thank you very much. originally it was just a nameless tavern but I can't wait to expand upon it more.

Nice job on the menu, I liked the added quote about tipping at the bottom. I am a bit curious as to why it is a "volunteer" watch. Do people need to be forced?

As always, it would be appreciated if you would stop by my challenge article The Storm Giant Empire and leave some feedback.   If you are looking for things to read from summer camp there is also my Summer Camp 2022 Reading Challenge.. Happy worldbuilding.

Thank you it is developing as i continue to create but currently i am thinking it is going to be mandatory for certain citizens despite everyone insisting it is a "volunteer" organization.

Love the menu pic!   I'd love to hear a bit more about the tavern like the staff or the building itself. Still, great article overall!   ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Feel free to check out my Tavern Challenge article if you want to see what I am up to!

Glad you like it! Started as nothing notable but it is becoming it's own entity quickly in my world.

NGL that menu is hilarious. And giving away free board ain't a way to make a living... -,-

Yea, her husband does not like when she does that. First Game session she hinted at discounting the room rates for the party and he was not having it.

Family dinners and restaurants have this warm and cosy atmosphere, which I feel in your article. The backstory and the menu with a dash of humour level up the atmosphere.   From the visual perspective, the warm and highly contrasting colour of the menu parchment was clashing for me with the overall cold/violet colour variants used on the page. Filling in the sidebar would also make the piece feel more whole.   But they're not deal breakers and it was fun to read. :)

Thank you. It wasn't originally going to be a thing but as the campaign continued It became one and I will be adding more to it as I develop it. I am looking forward to where it goes as I iron it all out.
