Skellan's Enemy Within
Street of a Hundred Taverns
The Street of a Hundred Taverns is found on the east bank of the Reik, running from docks at the the river’s edge to the Konigplatz. There is a heady atmosphere on the street throughout the day and the evening. It is lit with lanterns and the air is pungent with smells of fine ales and tasty dishes. The thoroughfare is crammed with revellers, rakes slumming it amongst the common folk, women of ill repute looking to earn their keep, pickpockets, musicians, students, bunko artists, and drunks, lots and lots of drunks.
As the name suggests, the street is home to a great many hostelries, drinking houses, gin palaces, and taverns. Many of the premises licensed to serve drinks along the street are mere humble residences whose owners set aside a room and a keg for their friends, though there are also a large number of purpose-built taverns on the street. Despite the name, there are rather less than one hundred taverns on the street.
