The Helm at Highsun

Right across the Long Road from the Swinging Sword Inn stands a ramshackle two story tavern. Rusty metal grills cover its small, dirty windows. The tavern’s name is clearly printed in large simple letters on both sides of a jutting wooden sign. Atop the sign is a rusting, oversized adornment: A warrior’s bucket helm with two eye slits.

Inside is a large dimly lit, wood paneled taproom. An open-tread wooden staircase climbs to the upper floor which is just as dim and darkly paneled as the taproom. Across the back of the taproom copper candle-lanterns hanging over it, and a stair leading down to the cellars.

This is where locals relax, gossip, flirt, jest, tell war stories, and above all get drunk. This is not a place for refined dining. The Helm gets rowdy from time to time with drunken fisticuffs. Behind the bar are three large oak cudgels and a cloak, presumably used for dealing with overly obnoxious patrons..

The Helm is run by Garlen Harlathurl who is assisted by his cellarer Justran Daehl.
