Welcome to The Thirsty Herald, a rather good tavern just a few hours ride north of the city of Strata. Here all kinds of people meet: travellers from the north who have crossed the unforgiving desert, be it the long way through from Bardavos, or the shorter from Thalambath, coming to the famous harbour of Strata, artisans from the city itself wanting a cool glass of ale before going home after work, merchants, traders and smugglers trying to sell their goods to you. And don't forget the strangers, who maybe disembarked just yesterday, coming from the west or south or east. Strange people they can sometimes be, those wanderers from other continents, but everyone is welcome at the tavern, as long as you don't disturb the merrymaking with quarrel and fight.

The owner of the Thirsty Herald is a young woman named Tristessa Stonebridge. Her father had originally owned the place, but had left for the big city with her daughter, Claudia. Triss is in charge of the kitchen, as well as the common area activities. One can also find her preparing rooms for guests. She has hired two people to help her out, Synder Nytefall and Ash Tyr. They are mainly there to help the guests when Triss cannot and to keep the peace.

Pictures of the Thirsty Herald provided by the Santharian artist, Seeker.
