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.
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.
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.
