Dermot watches that no drunkard or other misfits disturbs the patrons and atmosphere, and if he does, the person misbehaving will be warned or removed from the place.

  • General Staff
  • Some Halflings and few Dwarves, men and women, work at the kitchen and floor service, but are not too recognisable by the regular patrons. They mostly just do their work as expected and don't seem to blend or stick out too much like the other staff members.
  • Sensory & Appearance

    Upon entering the tavern, one would usually hear the music of the bards performing at the middle of the pub. Smells of fried vegetables and cooked peas and other beans. The tavern's busiest hour is around pre-dusk, at the time many people finish their work and coming to relax and meet with friends after a hard day's work, before turning to their houses to prepare and rest for their next day.
    Sixth of days is a rest day for the Stout Halflings of Albariya, and so the tavern opens at noon to host the many workers and their peers and/or family, wishing to have a drink, snack and listen to music.


    As the city of Albariya is home to the Halflings, so naturally they are very common to be at the tavern. Some Halflings are friends or related to the Zreini family, and can be seen frequently.
    Alongside Halflings, the tavern is a "hot spot" for Dwarves and Deep Gnomes, as they are the main population residing at the Rehaniye District. It is a common sight to see a group of some Dwarves and Deep Gnomes sitting together and sitting around a table with beer pints and some group meal(s).
    Occasionally Elves and other taller people visit the tavern on their travels from their mainlands, or students at the city's colleges.

    Notable Patrons

  • Wajdi Ab-Rami
  • Wajdi is a short and fit Stout Halfling. Wajdi is a retired soldier of the Albarian Army. Though fairly young, Wajdi retired after a leg injury during his service, requiring him to walk with a cane. Wajdi is an acquaintant of Jobre, and can be seen frequently chatting with him at his visits. He gets some free drinks or meals, but overall treated the same and equal to the other patrons. Wajdi would mostly be seen drinking a pint of beer, with sour olives on the side, and smoking a pipe.

If alone, Ranni would dring a glass of wine while he seems to work with some documents, or reading the latest Akhbar A-Balad magazine issue. With his family he will very likely order a bottle of wine with various dishes shared between the family members.
  • Tierri Bioscaine
  • Tierri is a grey skinned Deep Gnome, born in the Underdark of Karlikisma, later moving to Albariya City after completing his journalism studies at Karlikisma. Tierri likes to visit the Nar Kham at the light hours close to opening times.

Drinking water while eating, and after the meal he usually orders hot tea. While sitting at the pub, one would often see Tierri sitting with pencils, a notebook and some pages of notes, seems to work on another entry for the Akhbar A-Balad magazine.
  • Architecture

    The building is very basic and uses the common Albariyan architecture.
    Based on hard stone, the floor is also stone, and the walls as well. From the inside the walls are covered by wood, and the support beams are of iron, and are also covered by wood.
    At its top, a dome like structure is built and set, as is traditional in Albariyan public places.


    The front door is watched by a Dwarf bouncer. If duty calls, the bouncer intervenes and forces the rowdy patron to either calm down or leave at once, by force if necessary.
    At the tavern itself, many armed adventures and the Halfling and Dwarf staff doesn't shy from violence if so needed.
