Dark Sun: The Tyrant of Tyr
House of Fingers
This bizarre inn is a clandestine safe house for bards. The establishment gets its name from the hundreds of ancient human, demi-human, and creature appendages that adorn the walls. The thousands of fingers that line the wall create a surreal and macabre atmosphere. The fingers are now so brittle with the passage of time that they crumble to dust at the touch. As such, shattering a finger in what is now regarded as a shrine is punishable by death. An uneasy truce exists in the establishment: No poison is administered, bought, or sold within its walls. Likewise, all bards can consider themselves safe from other bards. While there is no honor among thieves, even bards must have a place to go and be safe from other bards. The owner of the establishment, Sarkea, is convinced that the fingers protect her. To that end, she never leaves the dark confines of the inn.
