Closest we could get to an inn or tavern right now is if someone setup a guild hall in town, and stocked it with tables, like a mess hall, or mead hall Public access to the building, maybe even the tables / table buffs!
Honestly, the town square is currently filling that role, but a public access building for waiting parties of adventurers or those wishing to stop for a few minutes would be really nice!
Well, about 12 hours ago, I took the plunge, purchased a prime piece of real estate below the square in Tormouth, and started building a public hall / tavern. A little more than 3 hours later, the humble public Tier 2 Tormouth Tavern was completed. Over the course a couple of additional hours, 11 public tables were added to the tavern, serving at least 4 meals before I logged off.
So if you are interested or happen to be in Tormouth, feel free to stop by. I am interested to see if it is used and how it is used. Let me know!
If anyone wants to be part of the Tormouth Tavern project, also let me know in-game (my ign is also Zetecua)
As is, alone, progress will be slow. Upkeep on the plot is about 270 T3 mobs per day. Maintaining the tables comes second, and lastly upgrading the Tavern. Right now, getting the Tavern and all of the tables up to Tier 5 before the end of the test will be a good challenge.
Lastly, right now, the tavern will continue because I want to push for it, but, a serious discussion about how to make running a tavern a profitable profession would be good. If a way can be found, the prospect for additional taverns across Albion will rise.
