The Shaggy Bear is a Viziman inn and a favorite hangout of the Mahakam Volunteer Army. "Fixtures" there include Zoltan Chivay, Dennis Cranmer, Yarpen Zigrin, Sheldon Skaggs and Jarre. Many a dispute relating to promotions and the like was settled over a few mugs. It is also a favorite hangout of the Vizima underworld. Many rumors circulate about the beer there — in particular, that the beer is made from dog urine.
The Hairy Bear Inn is located in the southernmost corner of the slums in the Temple Quarter. It is just kitty corner from the Eager Thighs brothel, and if you lack the orens for a proper room, there is a conveniently located campfire just outside.
The Hairy Bear is the place for indiscriminate clientèle. The innkeeper obviously holds back on the lye, though he waters down the ale generously enough. Patrons share the thin mattresses with rats, but most everyone can find their entertainment of choice here. Illegal fistfight enthusiasts, hustlers and drunkards will all find something to do at the Hairy Bear.
This is a standard inn:
- A waitress buys and sells food, drink, and grease
- The usual storage, via the innkeeper
