The inns, boarding houses, bars and taverns which cater to adventurers. Not an exhaustive list, but deals with the more prominent places. Quarters are given a double listing for quality/price.
Quality of an establishment is a reflection of privacy and furnishings of the rooms, the worthiness of the kitchen, the cleanliness of the help and the amount of water in the ale.
Excellent (E) implies first class accommodations. For inns, private rooms with baths; for bars and taverns, excellent food and drink. Base prices (modified by the price rating) are city rooms and inn lodging at twice ´common´ price, while meals are considered ´good´.
Good (G) means fine quarters and food; not the best, but above average. Rooms may or may not be private, with a communal bath. City rooms and inn lodgings are common, while meals are good.
Fair (F) indicates average to below-average quarters, passable and filling meals, cheap drinks. City rooms are at common prices, inn lodgings are at poor prices and meals are common.
Poor (P) means the quality is well below average-thin walls, watered drinks, surly help. Rooms are cleaned yearly whether they need it or not. Meals, rooms, and lodging are all priced poor.
Prices for quarters represents a modifier for the base price determined by quality.
(E) at least double listed price, can be much more
Moderate (M) listed price
Cheap (C) halve listed price
