“Storm Peace” proclaimed the gnome lass to each person on entry. (She appeared to be the Inn’s serving wench)
“Please check your weapons at this table as you enter, this establishment is considered a neutral sanctuary”.
“Storm Peace”, is a relatively new concept - one that Belkar was unfamiliar with. Under the proclamation of “Storm Peace”, an uneasy truce was forged between combatants while within an establishment.
The truce was enforced by the disarming of the patrons on entry - and usually backed up by a highly skilled warrior whose job was to keep unruly patrons inline - after their having imbibed one too many ales.
