Princes of the Apocalypse
Helvur Tarnlar, Clothier
Tarnlar’s is the only place to buy quality clothing for a hundred miles around. The square two-story building stands at the intersection of the Long Road and the Cairn Road. Its signboard is painted with the images of a well dressed lord and lady, one on each side of the board. Ornate scroll-work iron bars protect its windows.
The Tarnlars used to be wagon makers, but due to competition the family changed trades two generations ago. The Tarnlars reinvented themselves as vendors of sturdy but fashionable clothing to appeal to the merchants and travelers making use of the Long Road. After all, cloaks and boots wear out just like wagon wheels, and anyone trudging for tendays on the road in raw spring weather or bitter winter cold soon comes to value warm garments very highly indeed.
The clothing, boots, and accessories are all fine, warm and sturdy, even though few Red Larchers can afford to buy them for every day wear. The Tarnlars live in a comfortable apartment above their shop.
