The Iron Hearth Tavern was an inn and tavern on the west side of Kraghammer in the upper district. It was owned and operated by Adra with an all-male staff. Some of its employees included Shile and Belan.
The Iron Hearth served ale from Balgus Brewery, the only brewery in Kraghammer.
The tavern smelled of stale alcohol and smoked wood. Some of the tables were half broken and repaired. The ceiling of the tavern was vaulted by dwarven standards, about seven feet high. The tavern had at least three floors, with rooms on the second and third floors that could be rented by the night.
The Iron Hearth featured a brawling circle in the tavern area, an oval about 30 feet by 20 feet.
The tavern was a social center of the city, and the noise within could be heard several buildings away. Most of the staff and clientele were dwarves.
Balgus was the reigning (and undefeated) champion of the fighting ring, and he frequented the tavern to get drunk.
"Arrival at Kraghammer" (1x01)Edit
Grog Strongjaw could barely stand in the tavern. When the party entered, a group of dwarves laughed and offered to buy Grog a drink. The rest of the party took a table next to the dwarves. Vax'ildan slammed a sack of gold on the table and announced that he was buying every dwarf in the tavern a round. Adra, the owner of the bar, served up steins of ale all around.
Adra gave the party a discount on five rooms for the week at a total cost of 100 gold pieces, paid in advance.
