The Avenan Empire
Warm Hearth Inn
The first dining establishment and inn to reopen on the surface of the Ap’Leian volcano after the end of the Scourge. It is housed in one of the few original buildings to survive the ravaging of the volcano’s surface during the Scourge, with only a single wall, some interior features and the roof needing replacement. The structure has been extended fairly deep underground; located close as it is to the harbor, a network of pipes move seawater through the walls to keep the interior relatively cool.
The Inn retains the ancient gnomish architectural features that keep the interior free of the steam that blankets the city, rendering it one of the most comfortable buildings in the city. It is a coveted place to stay by visiting merchants, and its beds and dining room are usually full except during the height of winter when trade from Belix slows to a near stand still.
