From rags to riches, a Tale of High Adventure
The Jade Jug
On the northwest corner of the intersection of the High Road and Waterdeep Way stands what has been called Waterdeep’s plushest inn. It deserves its prime locationmany noble families would envy the spotless, luxurious accommodations. Every detail, from handsoap bowls beside the piped-water baths, within easy reach of a reclining bather, to the bedside icebox filled with shrimp snacks and chilled wine, has been thought of.
Guests are attended by a personal servant of their choice for the duration of their stay from those not presently engaged with another customer. Their every need is attended to: Food is brought, a coach (or, in icy winter weather, a sledge) is brought around if the guest wishes to go out in the city, and anything a guest gets dirty is instantly whisked away and replaced with a clean duplicate.
Decor is muted, not garish or in bad taste (unlike the Unicorn’s Horn across the way). Quite simply I felt like a pampered king during my one-night stay. But with rooms 12 gp to 30 gp/night and suites 25 gp to 50 gp, one night was simply all I could hope to afford!
Until youve been bathed by a cheerful, skillful, beautiful maid who wears white gloves as she
soaps you, you havent lived. If youve gold enough, go to the Jade Jug. Ill never sneer at pampering again.
