Curse of the Crimson Throne
One of the oldest surviving inns on the mainland, Whitecaps is more than a century past its prime. It looks old, it smells old, and it even feels old once inside it. Despite its age and wear, though, Whitecaps remains a popular destination for visitors to the city.
Whitecaps’s popularity comes not from any quality or service it provides, but rather for its reputation for being both clean and cheap. And secure. Thanks to high quality locks and thick doors, patrons of Whitecaps have reported only seven burglaries in its two-and-a-half centuries of existence. Unfortunately, two of those reports have occurred in the past three months. The owners worry that the inn’s sparkling reputation for safety has attracted the attention of someone intent on disproving it. They have asked the Korvosan Guard to increase patrols near their establishment and have even hired a retired but half-deaf marine to act as an on-site security guard at night.
