The Spindleweb Inn
Est. 1st of The First Moon, 109 AC
The Spindleweb Inn is a locally-owned and operated business located on the West Island of Shade’s Dock. The Inn maintains a bar offering a wide assortment of foods and drinks, including a variety of fine liquors, to sate the appetite and whet the whistle of even the saltiest sailor. Spindleweb Inn also maintains five rent-able cabins for travelers arriving by wagon or vessel, and a rent-able second floor for guilds and companies that need extra space and accommodations.
The shipwreck that is now known as The Spindleweb Inn has a long and storied history. Dating back to the First of The Midyear, 48 AC, the infamous pirate Lazy-Eye Louie and the crew aboard his vessel, then known as the Llorona Louise, were on the run from privateers off the Western coast of Enarion after pillaging a merchant vessel. The chase took the Llorona Louise and its pursuers many miles into the deep, uncharted ocean amidst a terrible storm which claimed the lives of many privateers and pirates alike. Before they could escape, the Llorona Louise was swept into the air by the powerful winds of a hurricane and disappeared.
The next morning the citizens of the newly formed Shade’s Dock came outside their homes and rubbed the sleep from their eyes to find none other than the Llorona Louise sitting neatly on the cliff-side at the Western side of town; damaged, but intact. Upon investigation it was discovered the entire crew, the captain included, were gone. The mysterious and some say, supernatural, occurrences that happened that day have given rise to many stories centered around the ship, but the key elements within all of them remain the same; that the vessel is cursed, haunted by the souls of Lazy-Eye Louie and his crew.
For the next fifty years the shipwreck went on to house many different businesses until being claimed by its most recent proprietor; the beautiful and talented Mistress Desidae Araneae, who went on to establish it as The Web & Whiskey Tavern, before expanding two years later and rebranding as The Spindleweb Inn.
The fighting pit (located on the ground floor of the Inn) regularly schedules ranked competitions between fighters across Enarion seeking gold and glory. Keep an eye out for posters advertising the next round.
