Inhabitants

The Blade and Stars was an inn in Baldur's Gate on the Sword Coast of Faerûn.[3]

StructureEdit

The long building was four stories with an attached stable. The kitchens were on one side and the upper room balconies were on the other. The rooms were tidy and clean. The front lobby hosted a small lounge where guests could meet citizens. Outside, the inn sign displayed a female hand clutching a lightly curved saber and several enchanted stars that twinkled softly. It was rumored the sign was plundered and purchased years ago from a raiding party in Amn.[2]

AtmosphereEdit

The inn was fairly quiet and sold of drinks of moderate pricing.[3] Meals were served in guests' rooms rather than a dining room and consisted of regular ale, bread, and fish. The bread could be ordered with cheese or melted eggs. On winter nights, the staff served ruby cordial, a sweet brew of cherries dissolved in sugared red wine.[2]


StaffEdit

The innkeeper, Aundegul Shawn, hired several guards to turn away street rogues and thugs from entering the establishment. They were especially on the lookout for dopplegangers, which posed a growing problem in Baldur's Gate around 1367 DR.[2]

RumorsEdit

Local legend stated a female yuan-ti was trapped within the inn's walls, imprisoned while fighting a wizard. Rumors said she would finally be released upon his death.[2]

PricesEdit

  • Rooms (included bath, stabling, one free drink, and meals) for 3 gp per night
  • Cordial for 3 cp per goblet
  • Ale for 3 cp per tankard
