Two concentric rings of high walls with gates that were barred at night.
Bargewright Inn housed dealers who bought and sold horses, mules, and oxen, blacksmiths, wheelwrights, coopers, and wagonmakers. It had inns, stables, and warehouses.
Though the thorp was run by a plutocracy of business owners, most of whom are in the pockets of the Black Network, the unofficial leader was Chalaska Muruin.
The Lords of Waterdeep and the Harpers both had agents within the Bargewright as the Zhentarim were vying for control of the surrounding area. Despite these power plays the inn remained a haven for travelers from all throughout the North. Eventually the inn came under Zhentarim control some time after the War of the Silver Marches, and many of the business owners in the area fell under the Black Network's sway.
Notable Inhabitants Edit
- Chalaska Muruin, "Senior Sword" and master of the militia. Human.
- Nalaskur Thaelond, half-elf innkeeper at the Old Bargewright and spy for the Zhentarim.
- Arik Stillmarsh, human vampire
The inn was fortified by Feston Bargewright after numerous attacks from bandits and brigands; this feat was accomplished with the help of several Waterdhavian merchants. The inn fell under Zhentarim influence some time after the War of the Silver Marches. During that time, any member or ally of the Black Network could find a discreet welcome (and few or low fees) within its walls.
