War's of the South
Durn is getting to be an old man. Durn had a successful career as an adventurer in the area before the royal expansion officially “settled” the area. Taking the fortunes he earned as part of a an adventuring company Durn built the Iron Tap in a portion of the Lower City in Goldguard.
From here Durn serves as a patron of would be adventurers. Perhaps feels some long lost connection with his roots, maybe he has a genuine desire to help lift up the people this sort of life attracts, or maybe he just likes to get paid still! Durn collects a small sum from the nobles he helps and adventures he coordinates with. Durn’s tavern provides a more or less safe refuge for those in the adventuring trade to set up shop in as well as direction to potential sources of employment. For his part in assisting powerful people he collects favors and good will which he then peddles for his own means.
Durn runs a tight ship however and tolerates no nonsense. He has a few employees to help him out, but isn’t above helping keep the peace himself.
