The Zephir was a small tavern located in the village of Amkethran in Tethyr. It was frequented by the mercenaries of Balthazar around 1368 DR.[1]


The tavern was part a series of buildings, embedded into the rock and connected to each other by wooden ladders. The Zephir was the bottom-left most building, and had a small chimney built onto it.[1]


The tavern was divided into two rooms: the main bar room, and the sleeping quarters. There were only two sets of tables and chairs, and a small bar. The sleeping quarters were packed together and contained four large beds.[1]


The bar was manned by Zakee Rafeha, a kind gentleman. He may have informed Gorion's Ward about the lack of popularity for the ruler Balthazar, and his exploits.[1]
