The Devil’s Riddle: Interlude: More town building

As I’ve hit two dead ends I’m going to send my party to a nicer inn to regroup and  rest up. My random inn generator gives me:

Inn: The Crossed Axes
Location: On Great Well Close, in a residential district of decent row houses and wealthy merchants. The street outside is lined with a simple iron fence.
Description: The inn is a single storey timber framed building, with a small fenced yard. Accomodations consist of several large rooms with beds and straw mattresses and wooden cots near the hearth. The inn has recently become infested by pixies.
Innkeeper: The innkeeper is a young female human named Aldgith.

Rumors
1. Something has been delving a maze of twisty little passages beneath the town.
2. Bizarre monsters have been encountered in the Great Greenwald.
3. The town magistrate is also the master of the Assassins Guild.
4. The elves of Blackbriar Forest are savage and worship a fierce troll.

Now we have a location, let’s see if there’s anything of immediate interest:

Any sign of Ranji? (Very unlikely): No
Anyone seen Ranji? (Very unlikely) Yes. Finally! A lead! First let’s see who saw her:

R: #8: ⅞: Rafnhe, the dwarven scholar.

Now I know there is something to learn, which a great step in the right direction. Next session I’ll have to see what the party are able to root out.
