The Swinging Sword was a stone and timber inn in the town of Red Larch.[4][1]

AppearanceEdit

The Swinging Sword was a three-story building of stone and timber, with a steep slate roof, many chimneys, and a covered porch that runs parallel to the Long Road. It also has a round turret that looks like it belongs on a large castle.[4][1]

AtmosphereEdit

The Swinging Sword is old, dark and full of secret passages and storage closets. It also has a lot of mice and cats who hunt them. Sometimes the Swinging Sword gets rowdy, as it's the favorite inn in Red Larch of adventurers, professional escorts, and those who are people of action.[4]

OwnershipEdit

In 1370 DR, the inn was owned and run by elderly sisters Jhandlatha and Peieyrie Taskaloath, who were both sorcerers, and loved to hear the tales of adventurers who stopped at the inn.[2]

By 1491 DR, the inn was in the possession of the Irkell family of Waterdeep, and run by Kaylessa Irkell.[1]

RumorsEdit

Around 1370 DR, there were rumors that a gate (or even more than one), were hidden somewhere in or near the Swinging Sword. Tales told of connections with the Moonshaes, The Vast, and the Tashalar. The rumors were supported by strange folk showing up in the inn often.[4]
