West Athens Marches
The publican of the Lame Mare, an inn in Sunhaven.
The proprietor of the Lame Mare, Pate is notoriously laconic and gruff, rarely engaging even his most regular customers in a conversation about anything other than their tab. He has been at the Mare for over thirty years, and has seen one prior wave of adventurer come and go through Sunhaven.
Though he has little to say, Pate is an omnipresent feature of the Old Mare. He is constantly on the move in the common room, particularly when things are busiest. He may as well be dumb, but he is certainly not deaf, and it seems probable that he known more than one tale out of the Wild – if only he could be persuaded to tell it.
