Inside, the common room is bustling with activity, with adventurers from all walks of life gathered around tables, sharing stories and making plans for their next quest. The decor is rugged and rustic, with animal skins and weapons hanging on the walls, and a roaring fire in the hearth providing warmth and light.

The owner of The Bloodied Mace is a seasoned adventurer himself, a middle-aged man named Tordek who wears a suit of battered chainmail and carries a broadsword at his side. He is a friendly and affable host, always eager to regale his customers with tales of his own adventures, and to offer advice and guidance to those who seek it.

The staff at The Bloodied Mace are all experienced adventurers as well, hired by Tordek for their knowledge and expertise. They are friendly and outgoing, always willing to strike up a conversation or lend a hand to those in need. The service at the inn is prompt and attentive, with food and drink served quickly and efficiently.
