I'm expecting to have some D&D characters hit a city and want to find taverns. Therefore I need some taverns, right? So I turned to the internet, and found a random tavern generator. I just really like it when I think of something I need, and the internet has already provided it, for free.
In this case, I rather liked what the folks who made this decided were the important things to give you about a tavern.... Here's a sample.
