"The Wine Cellar..."


The Wine Cellar sits as the basement of The Scarlet Bard, the only tavern that serves wine. Open for anyone to visit with permission of the owner of the Inn, its musty air from old wine can be a significant deterrant.

Also, the traps, and creatures that lurk in its walls and behind closed doors that desire only to kill and eat adventurers may also cause someone to think twice before descending.

One storage corner of the cellar holds fine wine as young as 10 years of age. Another holds rare wines from 50 years and older. Another corner is known to provide access to the deeper underworld of Skara Brae - the murky sewers.

"...the barkeep is overworked, and sent me down into the cellar after my own wine. No mere cache of fine drink in dusty bottles and skins in this cellar -- 'tis rather an extensive maze of corridors oozing niter and slime. We will return with our gear, and the remainder of our party."

~ Lord Garrick's journal
