The Briar is a tavern located in the Humble Quarter of Tyrst. It is run by an Elf by the name of Rosewood. He’s a generally cheery fellow though the constant attacks on his establishment tend to make him a little gun-shy. The Briar is possibly the only place in own where non humans get treated the same as everyone else. So it is a haven for monsters. It is closely monitored by the more racist in town to see who is monster or monster sympathizer. So staying there or even visiting there can cost you in the city. Though it is the most well protected place in the city with many magic wards and is the only place in town protected directly by “Shoals swords”. Damage done to the Briar is only ever superficial so it is a perfectly good place to stay and shows are legendary.
