Languard Locations: The Shambles

Storied Languard— the capital of Ashlar and its greatest city—stands hard against Hard Bay’s turbulent, stormy waters. To the north lies the Mottled Spire’s brooding spray-drenched mass, the curse-haunted ruins of Greystone and Gloamhold’s doom-wreathed halls. Ashlar’s greatest—indeed only—city, Languard is a noisy, dirty place. Here, amid broad, muddy streets teeming with life and shadow-mantled, danger-filled alleyways there is little beneath the sun that cannot be had somewhere—for a price.

Languard Locations: The Shambles presents ten additional locations designed for use with City Backdrop: Languard. While the locales within are designed with Languard in mind, they are easily convertible for use in your campaign. This instalment deals with locations in the Shambles district.

 

Shambles Locations

  • S1 Raisa’s Curios1: Idle adventurers often come here to browse the eclectic range of goods on offer.
  • S2 The Bloody Eagle1: A seemingly destitute merchant runs this tavern, which is a Shadow Mask front.
  • S3 Veera’s Corpsewear: While most Low City haberdashers obscure their products’ provenance, Veera makes no excuses. The clothes in her small shop come straight from corpses.
  • S4 The Broken Elbow: A rough tavern famed for its cheap beer, cheaper women and arm wrestling contests.
  • S5 Kardagg’s Discount Emporium: This large shop is where failed adventuring groups come to sell off their equipment.
  • S6 Crier’s Corner: From this dubious vantagepoint criers read proclamations, merchants advertise wares and drunkards rail at the world.
  • S7 Kaino’s House: Here in this ramshackle house dwells the ill (or more accurately cursed) scribe Kaino.
  • S8 Mongrel Alley: Light barely reaches this dismal alley through the overlapping roofs, and the thin, rough street feels all the longer for the shadows looming over it. Something terrible lurks on Mongrel Alley.
  • S9 The Spinning Coin: Coin and valuables flow through this aged, unassuming shop, which sells everything from ancient art to newly-forged weaponry.
  • S10 The Stone Cauldron: This infamous tavern is run by the former thief, Havu, who sells the cheapest alcohol in the city.
  • S11 The Rookery: Crows and ravens perch on this building’s crumbling stone overhangs and branches of nearby trees. Here the druid Irja trains her birds.
  • S12 Well of Dreams: This is either a great place to throw away hard-earned coppers or a site where earnest wishes come true, depending on who you ask.
