One of the most expensive (and easily
the most over-priced) restaurants in Stormhelm, the Crested
Falcon caters to the whims of the city’s elite. The menu changes
each day and only relates what the kitchen has in stock.
Patrons may request any meal made from the listed foods on
hand, and only find out the cost of their meals during the
check-out process. To ask for the price ahead of time is a serious
social faux pas. Those who receive the bill and cannot pay
in full are subjected to magic that compels them to serve the
restaurant until they work off their debt. These unfortunates
often begin their service washing dishes, but they quickly
graduate to wearing sandwich-board advertisements for the
Crested Falcon. Rugged and capable-looking clients receive
more fitting tasks, such as hunting pheasants, fishing for jigsaw
sharks, or trading for thileu bark with Vistani.
Clientele of the Crested Falcon go there to see and be seen, and the quality and expense of the food never truly concerns them. Nobles more interested in substance than style cross into North Point and dine at the Posh and Turtle.
