The Mystery of Kars' Kathoon
Black Pick Tavern
A Hole in The Ground, would be a better name for this filthy establishment. Brock Dirge uses this tavern more for gaining patrons to his fighting ring, The Pit then for actually selling alcohol, which he does in large quantities. Due to the nearby miner’s guild there is always business for The Pick (as locals know it). It is not the only tavern in town, but it is most certainly the most successful.
Dirgan, the barkeep, has a reputation for a real people’s person, with a sympathetic ear and always willing to give sound advice to any seeking it. He has been known to give away free alcohol and food to the poor and destitute, much to the chagrin of his boss, Brock Dirge. In fact, Dirge would fire Dirgan outright, if Dirgan weren’t more critical to The Picks success than any other factor. The fact that Dirgan, a kind and cheerful man, would work for Dirge at all is a mystery to most in Hedgerow.
