The Rusty Anchor
Waves of drinking songs and hearty cheers flow out the wide-open double doors of the Rusty Anchor, a large, three-story tavern in the midst of the Pirate Exchange. Everywhere you look, a different sort of entertainment is in progress. A wide stage features jugglers, musicians, and other performers, while tables at one side of the hall are a venue for an intense arm-wrestling competition. Near the wide bar, a list of names and numbers is chalked up on a slab of slate. An adjacent cleared space serves as a knife-throwing alley, where patrons hurl blades and insults with equal dexterity. In the center of it all stands a railed platform a few feet above the floor. The tables there give a clear view of the Anchor’s entertainment, but are all currently empty.
The Rusty Anchor is a large tavern near the heart of the Pirate Exchange. Not quite as rowdy as the dockside taverns, the Anchor still serves as one of the hottest nightspots in Regalport, primarily due to its clientele. Merchant nobles, pirate lords, agents of the dragonmarked houses, and even Prince Ryger ir’Wynarn himself are known to frequent the Anchor, rubbing elbows with sailors, merchants, and common folk.
