Cravin is a retired warrior who now runs The Ticklish Ogre. He knows a lot of people and is a great source of information about local affairs and exotic weapons. It is said he has a collection of unique weapons from his adventuring days.
Hodges has struck upon the idea of having his serving wenches be scanily clad. One of his regulars mentioned the coconut apparrel some natives wore he encoutered while on a voyage a year back. This has brought in a massive amount of business, despite being frowned upon by the “respectable” citizens of Sasserine. Ironically this has not stopped the Merchant’s guild from having business lunches there. Coconut sales also recieved a bump not long ago.
