The Beached Whale
The Beached Whale is the most popular tavern in the least popular dock of Sharn. It is owned and operated by Tabitha “Rosie” Roseguard.
The thieves guild known as the Church of P, of which Pippin Eventide is a member, secretly operates out of the basement of the tavern. Rosie is an unofficial member of the guild and helps them by passing information along her own business contacts and keeping the tavern a safe place for them to meet.
The Beached Whale got its name from the legend of how Cliffside (and depending on who you ask, Sharn) got its start. According to the tale, a gigantic whale beached itself on the shores of Dagger River and supported a growing population of scavengers that lived off of the whale for years. By the time the whale was all used up, the surrounding town was large enough to start supporting itself.
