However, not long before 1374 DR, Buldegas chose to build a new inn in Arabel, taking away his money and some of his best employees. He left the Wyvern in the care of his daughters, Asanta and Baerill, who increased its popularity.
The Wyvern Watch Inn lay at the western end of the Wyvern Ferry over the Wyvernflow River, opposite its rival, the Lantern Inn and Boathouse on the other bank. It stood right next to the ferry slip, and close to the center of town, with the Wheloon Watch House nearby.
The Wyvern Watch Inn was the biggest and best-looking inn in Wheloon, as well as the most popular and successful. This was thanks to its prime location by the ferry and its cheap prices. The rates were as low as 1 silver falcon per person per night, including all meals, drinks, and a bath. Mounts could be stabled, fed, and cared for for an extra 2 copper pieces.
For the low cost, the inn was not great, but it was cozy and sufficient. The rooms, mostly simple cubicles, were private and warm, with bolted doors and opening windows. There no were beds, only simple rope and straw mattresses tied from wall-to-wall, but always with fresh sheets. Each room was equipped with a chamberpot, a shelf, and hanging pegs on the wall.
The provender consisted of salty vegetable stews and coarse bread, but was nourishing enough. Buldegas watered down the beer and wine, though his daughters conveniently forgot his instructions and thus made the inn more popular. Asanta and Baerill's constant chat and noisy arguments also improved the atmosphere.
