What do you tink of these names for the tavern?: The Hanged Cat, The Fat Boar, The Peg-legged Goblin or come up with ideas for names?

Can you be somewhat more precise?

Where's this tavern? Is this something special in the Northlands? Is their some kind of story around its creation, etc...?
Think it could be a nice story but I'd like some more information what you've thought up before I give some suggestions.

Bye Koldar

How about The Black Water Inn?

I think what Art is trying to say, is what is the purpose of this tavern?
Is it a location in a story you are writing? Or for RPG? Or for the compendium?

How about 'The Tavern where All Sorts of Society's Scum goes to get Really Drunk and Create lots of Mass Destruction Later'? :lol  Okay, okay, sorry, am joking! I'm thinking, I'm thinking! Um...something suitably grand for a posh Orcish sort of place... 'The Hero and the Crown'? That's actually the title for a Robin McKinley book but it has a nice ring to it methinks. Something bawdy if you're having a low and illegal house of goblinish ill-repute....'The Naked Nipple'! Or a middle of the road respectable and neutral establishment....'The Dragon's Heart'?

Btw, Katya's pa's tavern was called 'The One-Armed Soldier'. I'm not precise on the grammer though, should it be One-Arm or Armed? I hate grammer :(

I like Darseidous 'The Black Water Inn'...
The tavern/inn is supposed to put the orcish civilization a bit more on the map...
Story? i am not so good at writing stories so would you,Greybark?;) (maybe not that important)

Well here is some info on the tavern...
Place: Somewhere in North-Sarvonia
People: Gnufruk is the tavern-keeper (ill write something about him later), a ogre (or oger, whatever) that’s named something like brutish, like Smash or Break or something.
A ogre is exactly what you need to show that there are orcs that not all orcs is smart…
Maybe some small Goblins running around with jobs like chefs and stable boys…
Well, im working on the tavern right now…

P.S. The tavern will probably be called 'The Black Water Inn'

Not be taken to literally, Gnufruk. You don't need to write a story but we of course would like to have more ideas concerning the inn. Why is it there? Where exactly is it Has it some sort of history? Is it an interesting meeting point? Why is it so famous? etc. You could collect various ideas about the inn and try to accumulate them in order to make a more detailed Compendium entry from it. At least that's what a good ideaprovider should try to have as his/her goal. Others could then work with this material, integrate it in their own stories. - How's that? Just try to be a little imaginative! I'm sure you can come up with something!

The tavern is not famous, its (almost) completely normal!
The tavern is supposed to describe orc normal life.
I have alraedy told you that im new to Sanharia and i dont know where Orcs, Goblins and Ogres (Or is it ogers?, never mind) live...

Well, they live mainly to the north, where your tavern is. And we know not very much about them, the north is pretty unexplored. Maybe you can find out some things - just ask your customers... Maybe they have a story or two to tell what's going on there in the north...
