This building of clapboard and shingles appears to be a large, rough-and-tumble tavern. Great bay windows of leaded glass look out over the river, often lit by the revel ongoing through most hours of the evening and night. A sign bearing the symbol of a dented ale mug hangs above the door, and written discreetly beneath it in gold letters are the words “Publican House.” This raucous place is actually a temple to Cayden Cailean, god of adventurers and drink, and is a favorite among the ships’ crews and travelers that visit Riddleport for its fair prices and wide selection. It is overseen by High Publican Arnando Rolf, a bear of a man who is rarely seen without a notched sword swinging at his hip. The temple-tavern is open to all, with the one exception painted in bright red letters in several languages directly above the bar: “No Cyphermages,” a policy enacted several years ago after numerous problems between Rolf and some of the more egotistical and stuffy members of the Order of the Cypher.
