[h3 Rosy Lion]

As you enter the roadside inn, feet sore and throat parched, you’re greeted by a scene of warmth and welcome. The floorboards are worn and well-trodden, showing evidence of old spills and stains that will never be removed, but still freshly cleaned and highly polished by a loving hand. There’s a small bar and a few tables, all that can fit in that small space. The furnishings are simple but sturdy and serviceable. It’s the smell that makes you feel at home--roasting meat and spiced vegetables. The odor permeates the air, makes your belly rumble and your mouth water.

A woman with a pleasant smile greets you from behind the bar, a musical lilt to her voice that reveals a good nature. “Welcome to the Rose and Lion, traveler. You have the look of one in need of a hot meal and a soft bed. The sheets are fresh as spring daisies, washed daily and aired by wind and sun, as is right. Not a bedbug to be found, on my honor. My husband makes the food, and you’ll find no finer cook for a hundred leagues. Trained in Arcstead, he did, and could have been chef to the king. Ah, but that’s a story best told over a mug of ale.”

With a wink and a nod, she pours a pint of fine amber ale and presents it as foam rolls down the side. “Now. Sit, weary traveler, and enjoy what we offer.

No payment necessary, at least not your coin. Put it away, I say! All we ask here... is that you share your tale, and don’t skip a single detail. The ups and downs of your life, a life unique to you and you alone, that’s all we want to hear. Tell us of your frustrations and challenges, of the thrill of success and what you’ve accomplished. Start where you like, and leave nothing out. That’s payment enough. There’s no currency more valuable than a life well lived and sharing it with others. But first, let me fetch your meal, and my husband besides, for we both want to hear every word.”

[h3 Advancement]
