A hamlet and the location of ‘The One Eyed Newt’ The tavern is essentially the centre of this small settlement, although no one remembers whether the tavern came first and the rest of the houses and businesses followed or vice versa. Being on what passes for a main road in Thauem ‘The Newt’ as it is known relies largely on passing trade for it’s business. It is frequented by travelling merchants, farmers and even the occasional missionary. As well as the tavern there is a small general store (run by the Innkeeper’s wife), a blacksmith’s yard and the stables where travellers can rest their mounts. The proprietor of the stables also sells and repairs riding tack and equipment and trades in livestock.
