Ptolus, City By The Spire
The Savage Shark
The Savage Shark, or just “the Shark” as it’s known to most people on the Docks, is everything that one might expect of a harborside tavern, and the owner, Hanthan Yan, knows it. In fact, it’s intentional. Although he has the gold to make plenty of improvements to the establishment, or to serve better ale, he doesn’t do so, because he wants to give his patrons what they expect. Hanthan is of medium build, but thin. He has the dark complexion of someone hailing from Uraq, but his family has lived in Ptolus for three generations.
The Shark does not serve food but offers ale, whisky, rum, and cheap wine. Nights that pass by without some kind of brawl in this tavern are rare indeed. In fact, many count on it. “It’s so late, we’ve likely missed the brawl down at the Shark,” one sailor working late might say to another.
