The Seeress's Prophecy
The Hotel is one of the important sites in the Market of Three Pillars. In one corner of the market square a column of golden light streams up, and inside it can be seen a comfortable room with attractive occupants. When you enter the light, you are transported to the foyer of The Hotel itself, from whence you can book a room. The Hotel can cater to all tastes and all pockets: the penthouse suite is so costly that – according to local lore, at least – no-one has ever stayed there. At the other end of the spectrum, there are filthy rooms little better than sewers that can be rented for the price of a drowned rat. The Hotel is run by Alara, a sphinx with an enigmatic smile and a placed manner.
