Forget your average scruffy fantasy tavern where adventurers go to quaff ale and wait for a brawl or someone looking for adventurers... The Vintners is a different kind of place, an upmarket oasis of luxury with a fine wine cellar where travelling nobles will feel quite at home.

In this product there's some backstory to set the scene of how The Vintners came to be established, with a noble family falling on hard times and a neglected vinyard resurrected by a curious guest who spotted grapes ripening when out for a stroll. The establishment is described in evocative terms and there's a sketchmap of the main building and its environs - you'd need to do some work developing it if you like detailed floorplans or make use of miniatures, but there's enough to go on for at least a casual visit. It's all fairly self-contained, just find a suitable location in your campaign world and plop it down, changing anything necessary to make it fit in completely.

Some of the notable characters you'll find there are described in detail (you'll need to add game mechanics of course), and several adventure ideas. These may be enough to get you going, especially with the plot twists included, or you may feel more comfortable developing them in more detail before play begins... or even combining more than one should you like busy, multistranded plotlines as much as I do!

An excellent resource with plenty of potential for some interesting adventures, especially if interaction and intrigue appeal.
