The Murdered Manticore, or simply the Manticore, was a nice inn to visit in Arabel, Cormyr, particularly if you wanted to hear juicy gossip or participate in illicit activities such as forgery.[1]


Heavy tapestries were prevalent through the Manticore, absorbing much of the sound from its occupants. Unbeknownst to the guests, secret passages connected every room.[1]


Despite the activities occurring under the roof the inn, the Murdered Manticore was a great place to stay because of the reasonable pricing and privacy afforded.[1]

Though the Manticore did not serve food, drinks could be had aplenty.[1]
