Set back from the Portside docks in a narrow alley facing the harbor is a two-story mud-brick
building covered in plain whitewash. Above its front door is painted words that read “The Sargava Club.” The bottom f loor is split between a shop and a tavern, while the top floor serves as an inn. The Sargava Club is owned by a feisty and outspoken half-orc named Briga.
Since opening, Briga has faced her share of discrimination, not the least of which has come from Lady Madrona Daugustana. The matriarch of Eleder has levied both fines and threats against her, but Briga remains unyielding in the face of her prejudice. The Sargava Club is
one of the few places inside the wall where prejudice is not tolerated, and Briga demands that all who enter her establishment treat each other as equals.
The bulk of the ground floor is dedicated to a small but well-stocked pawnshop specializing in adventuring equipment, information, maps, and magical items. Those serious about launching expeditions may also use the club to contact and hire native guides. A modest tavern occupies the remainder of the ground floor. It serves reasonably priced local fare — mostly fish — along with beer and a sickly sweet but potent Zenj liquor distilled from pineapple and sugarcane called mupute.
