Eye of the Tempest
The Grey Oyster is a fish restaurant located in a large stone building next to the harbor, its large wooden sign in the shape of an Oyster swinging invitingly in the strong wind. Inside it is warm and dry, the fire in the large hearth providing the necessary heat in the big open common room.
The Grey Oyster serves decent food in good portions for a reasonable price and as such is favored by soldiers, merchants and craftsmen. Merchants and captains often use it for business meetings. Lord Garwyl Gos is the eldest son of the Gos family, an influential family in Mulmaster whose reputation has been tarnished somewhat in the recent months. Garwyl’s reputation is impeccable though, known as a pragmatic ambitious hard working man. While his expectations of his employees and clients are high, he is fair and seems to stick to his own standards as well.
Of course, the biggest topic on the street is the current weather. It has been storming for days now. There have been worse storms, but none has lasted this long and the amount of rain is also worrying. Few think the cause is natural, but speculations of its origin run rampant. For now there only has been some minor property damage, and trade has taken a minor hit, nothing serious. The weather is not conductive to the crops though, and people are seriously worried about failed harvests and the total collapse of naval trade.
