The Green Door, popularized as simply the Door, was an inn and festhall in Essembra, Battledale in the mid–14th century DR, which also concealed a shrine to the forest goddess Mielikki.[1]

Location[edit | edit source]

The Door was located on the east side of Rauthauvyr's Road just north of Battle Court and the Silver Taproom.[2]

Structure[edit | edit source]

The Green Door had a green-painted front entry door that most believed gave the inn its name.[1]

Interior[edit | edit source]

Reflecting its name, the Green Door had wall tapestries displaying splendid forest scenes throughout the building. It was clean and simply furnished.[1]

There was no common dining hall or taproom, but there were harping chambers on each floor at the hearth end for patrons to meet and talk in.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The Door was once the most riotous and notorious festhall in the Dales, until Lashan Aumersair of Scardale occupied Essembra and ordered troops to murder its ladies, after which it became officially just an inn.[1]

In the 1360s DR, the Door was a place of pilgrimage for followers of Mielikki because it was the site of a pool of special waters, preserved in a wooded, backyard bower. The pool was the real "Green Door", whose tranquil waters held visions from Mielikki to her faithful.[1]

Rumors & Legends[edit | edit source]

Followers of Mielikki believed this is where their deity appeared in person to Florin Falconhand.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

The Green Door may be named for the song "Green Door", which is about a mysterious club and has been the inspiration for many real and fictional clubs.
