The Rilk is a clean, reasonably pleasant, and crime-free tavern for one very good reason- it is a front for the Slayers' Guild, where assassinations and other crimes are planned, paid for, and recorded. Tavernkeeper "No-Nose" Grossel ( the reason for his nickname is obvious) is a retired assassin who now enjoys pretending to be a simple businessman. Several secret rooms in the tavern's basement contain income from guild operations and list of operatives. They are well guarded by traps and human sentries.
