The Devourer Awakens
Inn at the Top of the Mountain
This well kept inn is at the top of the only mountain pass through the Great Exodus Mountains from the northern lands to the southern lands. It is run by the Stormrider family of dwarves. In the past when there was a much heavier trade between the north and south, the inn was a busy place and a popular stop over for caravans and travellers.
It has fallen on hard times since there is little traffic between the two areas now. Duroth Stormrider ran the inn with his 3 children and his wife of many years: Garret Stormrider, his oldest son, Opal Stormrider, his only daughter, and Narin Stormrider, his youngest son and his wife Olga Stormrider. He also had two helpers, foundlings he took in and sheltered: Grol and Saul.
Things are even more desperate now. Olga Stormrider was kidnapped by her own son Garret Stormrider and apparently sold to slavers in Port Liston. Duroth Stormrider is beside himself with grief and it is now up to Opal Stormrider and Narin Stormrider to run the inn. They are relying on help from Grol during this time as Saul has left to travel with the PCs.
