The Dim Lantern
The Dim Lantern is positioned caddy corner on the south east quadrant of Treaty Square. Its namesake, a barely glowing mechanika lantern, hangs out front from a cast iron rod. The story goes that it uses one of the first accumulators ever made. The city watch often stops in for lunch and one particular guard named Bruno keeps a special eye on the lantern in order to protect it from would be pranksters.
The ground floor of the lantern is made of a white stone and a brown mortar while the upper floors are all wood. The front door hangs at a slight angle inwards and opens outwards. In the winter a slight draft always creeps in under the poorly hung door. The first room you enter into is the main dining room. Besides the doors to the kitchen, a large fireplace, and stairs to the next floor there is in the corner an old ornately carved mahogony desk and the room keys for rooms 1 to 30. Many guests have noticed that there is no spot for room 13, but the proprietor Lyn Eckhart always laughs and says it’s bad luck to have that room.
Rooms are 2sp per night or 8sp for five nights paid ahead. The lantern serves a special drink supposedly made in a nearby lab called The dimmer. It is served in a small sniffer glass. The drink is a semitransparent light brown liquid and smells pleasantly like sugarcane but tastes like any other fine whiskey.
