Chronicles of the Moon
The Laughing Cow Inn
A backwater inn in a backwater frontier town, the Laughing Cow Inn is the only place to find drink, a warm meal and a bed, although the beds are mostly lice infested. The Cow, as the locals call it, is the best place to hear gossip, make deals and swap tales. It also serves as the village meeting hall, where Miller Wilhelm Braun addresses the rest of the villagers on matters of importance, such as village security, trade and crop failure.
Legend has it that the tavern was completed in the same year that a bad case of “Bonkers Bovine Bronchitis” swept through local cattle herds. The Laughs, as it is sometimes known, causes cows to cough in a way that makes it sound like hysterical laughter. The disease quickly kills the animal, and the carcass must be burnt to prevent the spread of the disease. The Laughing Cow was named after the plague, although most people would say that the Cow was named after a happier tale.
The PCs, Nicodemus, Becker and other “passers through” have taken up almost permanent residence in the Cow.
