The most prominent building around the hamlet was the stone keep which housed the titular inn, which was run by Bentley Mirrorshade. This establishment was a popular stop for people traveling on the Coast Road.
Apart from the inn, the wall surrounded a temple, a handful of houses, a stables and accompanying horse pond.
At the Friendly Arm, peace was secured by the guards, who insisted that all weapons be left at the gate and that all wizards and clerics tie one thumb to their belts, a practice that spilled over to fighting monks as well.
