Curse of the Crimson Throne
A fixture of Old Dock for more than two centuries, the Sticky Mermaid has seen more than its share of bar fights and death. This unwholesome tavern serves an unruly clientele made all the rougher by fishjack, a particularly potent spirit served only here and garnished with fermented eggs of Jeggare River salmon.
Every few months or so, the Korvosan Guard grows tired of breaking up fights in the Sticky Mermaid and shuts it down for a week or two. After the tavern’s owner appeals to the church of Abadar and pays a hefty fee, it reopens. These reopenings usually result in free rounds of the tavern’s special spirit for its returning customers.
