Having been a patron on a few occasions already, when I
looked out at at the warm evening sky I couldn't think of
a better place to spend some time supping a drink than the
roof-top bar of Blackmores Inn. I headed off to Skara Brae,
it's nearest town, and jumped on the ferry. I swear I could
smell, and almost taste, the ale coming from Blackmore's
as I reached the mainland docks. Heading south on the mainland
it wasn't long before I could hear the laughter and banter
of its patrons. As is common these days, there was a gathering
of adventurers enjoying the Inns hospitality before embarking
on a dangerous trip. It's a popular meeting point for local
guilds and friends of Blackmore Inoxi, the tavern keeper.
The ground floor provides an eating area should you want
to host a banquet.
Blackmore Inoxi works hard to provide a place of refreshment
for his patrons, and strives to open every night of the
week where possible. Entitled to a rest now and again, he
has recently taken on a bar maid, Gabrielle, to improve
the service even further. Vendors are also on hand should
anyone be calling outside of opening hours (european nights).
Blackmore served me up another ale and drew up a stool.
He sighed as he glanced about and explained that he sold
a couple of other homes to cover the loan for the building,
and to provide some long term finance for the running costs
and decor. He continued : "I grew tired of what seemed like
endless hunting and killing, and also being killed. I wanted
more. I longed to fulfill a dream that I have long held,
a personal goal." And after his hard work, we now sit in
Blackmores Inn and its staff generate a very welcoming
and friendly atmosphere and all I see around me are faces
wearing a smile, even those about to head off toward unknown
dangers. Tonights band of adventurers are heading out to
explore a far off dungeon. Armed only with my quill and
scrolls, I decide it's time to head for the safety of my
home. I gulp down the last of my ale and bid everyone safe
travels. I couldn't help but think of their return to this
very Inn later, retelling every moment of the nights excitement
to the taverner always on hand to listen and serve.
Editor's note: Since that review was written,
Blackmore Inoxi has left Britannia. However, the Tavern
is still open and the staff there is doing a terrific job.
This review will be updated in the near future.
