Barkeep (Human Expert 4/Warrior 1)
A barkeep is the proprietor of an alehouse, saloon, or tavern, often
with an inn attached. While some are sly, weasel-like, and unfriendly,
most are garrulous raconteurs, seeking to entertain their customers with
a story or joke and keep them happy and drinking. with patrons from
across the world visiting their taverns, most barkeeps know a smattering
of other languages to communicate with foreigners from far-away lands.
Barkeeps are used to trouble in their establishments, for drink often
brings out the worst in their customers, and most barkeeps are used to
facing down and intimidating drunks and bullies. For times when words
fail, a good barkeep keeps a weapon beneath the bar, and is not afraid
to use it. Changing a barkeep’s Profession skill to (innkeep) creates an innkeeper, possibly with Diplomacy instead of Intimidate, and his Perform skills changed to other Profession
skills, such as cook.
An average barkeep has four barmaids on staff, with two guards or street thugs working as bouncers (CR 6). a barkeep might also be found swapping stories over a pint with a shopkeep (CR 4) or guard officer (CR 5).
