[[Halls of Arcana]]
A watering hole for itinerant wizards and the haunt of sorcerers, sages and wise men, the Halls of Arcana is a delightful little tavern decorated with symbols, sigils and all sorts of things magical. Simrif Tallowstool, the owner is an ancient long-bearded wizardly looking man. Absent-minded and continuously wandering off in thought in the midst of conversations, Simrif is a vast source of knowledge of all things arcane.
…and the food and drink aren’t half bad either.
Well, at least that used to be the case. That is, until Simrif Tallowstool simply vanished. One night after closing up the tavern, Simrif simply walked through the city gates and never returned. The Tavern limped along for a few days, but then was forced to close when the employees just stopped coming to work and the clientele drifted away. Most everything of value was stripped away over the past year and there has been no word as to whatever happened to Simrif Tallowstool. A close friend of Gruel Falx and Theodore Dobbins, many folks still believe that the two had something to do with his disappearance.
