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!

An aged local tries to sell homemade crafts items to the patrons; scarves, tooled leather belts, clay pots, whatever their trade happens to be. They have to pay the innkeeper a percentage of their profits to be allowed to hawk their items in here.
A patron tells the same old story about the same old monster out in the woods to the same old audience trying to recruit them to go fight it in the same old way.
The bartender or innkeeper gets drunk and starts offering free drinks to anyone who can tell a funny story or a tall tale they haven't heard before.
Sample every beer in the house to win a prize!
For once things are exactly what they look like: Another patron is actually an important nobleman out slumming, the patron making friendly with the innkeeper actually is just the best swordsman of the country coming through town today, or the four hooded men meeting in the basement are simply merchants meeting in secret in order to take advantage of a business opportunity – a perfectly legal one at that!
