Downtime at the Inn (Generic)

Sometimes, the characters need a break – and by break they don’t really mean another story hook. This generator covers ordinary day-to-day things happening at the local inn in town which the characters are familiar with. A lot of entries here are simply background noise that characters resting up or waiting on somebody might act upon if they wish.

This table is designed for a European inspired fantasy set in a technological and cultural age equivalent to the Middle Ages up to the Early Modern Period (ca. 1100-1750 AD.).

This generator currently has 54 entries.

Give me five!

A thief is stealing from the rooms left unattended. Bonus points if they manage to make patrons suspect the characters instead of themselves.
A group of old soldiers or guards tell war stories and make fun of each other, having a jolly old time reminiscing.
A wealthy patron eats, drinks, and makes merry and yet the innkeeper seems disgruntled. As it happens, this man holds a powerful position in town or has dirt on the innkeeper and he never pays for what he consumes.
The City Watch conducts a routine inspection; patrons are questioned and their looks are compared to posters. Everyone is asked about escaped prisoners, exiles, and other criminals.
A newcomer to the town appears to watch everyone intently as if searching for somebody. Maybe they are – and maybe they just have poor social skills and are desperately trying to sort out who's a potential friend and who's a potential enemy.
