Adderposts - junk and pawn shop
Named for its curious serpentine-carved spiraling door pillars, this notorious shop deals in secondhand and, occasionally, stolen goods. Because of the door detailing, rumors linger that this old, loftyceilinged building was once a temple to some dark serpent god. Adderposts enjoys a growing reputation in northern Sembia. It is the place to transact shady business for Sembians who do not want to be seen engaged in such activities by their fellows at any of the local Sembian shady establishments!
The proprietor, Duskar Flamehaern, is a soft-voiced man of few words and nocturnal habits who is known to have a loaded crossbow handy at all times.
The shop is a fascinating jumble of old masks, armor heaped up in piles, and rickety stairs ascending to this or that overhead bedchamber. (All of the bedchambers are probably linked above the uneven plank ceiling). Lamps hang in profusion from the ceiling on bars that can be lowered by means of pulleys, and clothes hang on shoulder racks from every tread of the various ascending stairs. Only Duskar can quickly find anything in the chaos of his shop, but he knows where everything is and is enraged by browsers who pick up things, carry them around for a while, and then set them down elsewhere. Adderposts is the place to come if you need something unusual in a hurry particularly in the line of disguises, where a certain type of armor or uniform must be had and no other will do. Duskar seems to have specimens of every sort of military garb from the Moonsea and Dragon Reach lands. Coins he takes in payment are poured into one of a dozen or so speaking tubes that stand against pillars here and there around the shop tubes that pour their contents down to unknown regions below.
