The adventuring crew that walks into your inn is covered in mud and gore, barely wiping their feet before trekking across your floors. With a sigh you greet them and offer them rooms. They want a meal, and you offer them that, too. It’s easy to dish out some cold gruel and a few loaves of bread into your Inn Keeper bowl, after all.
While adventurers do make a mess of things, they also have great coin. You make sure to charge them double the usual rate.

The hornsling "Castagir", from the house Fucina del Drago was decorated with elaborate, Celtic knot patterns. It is shaped slightly conical to its underside, so every horn sits securely in its place. Curved lines and an antique finish make this hornsling a very decorative piece, that highlights the unique "nordic" character of a drinking horn. For LARPer and medieval fans, it is a nice and practical accessory in which signal horns and upholstered weapons can also find their place well. Thanks to the sturdy leather lacing on the front, the diameter can be extended as you wish.
