The most famous inn and tavern in town, this establishment is named after its location. A large, many-roomed and heavily timbered structure, it has been added to several times over the centuries. Its architectural style is therefore eclectic. When the original inn was built, it wasn't known that it was directly on the site of an ancient cairn. In fact, some of the stone was likely used in its construction. This is perhaps the reason why a ghost has been in residence here throughout The Forgotten Cairn's history.
The ghost appears as a white-bearded, large, barrel-chested warrior. He carries a shortspear and wears scale armor with a holy symbol of Kord emblazoned on its front. The ghost has never actually attacked anyone, but does try to get patrons to fight by pushing one in the back while another walks by, draining drinks, and other tricks. Regular patrons just enjoy watching the reactions of newcomers, and always seem to stop brawls before they get out of hand. Adventurers, merchants, and locals all spend time here. The food is good and the drink is excellent, with exotic brews available. A large hall with stage is available for town meetings and entertainment. There are several private rooms with tables where business can be conducted behind closed doors, and the inn is almost always full. Interestingly, though neighboring buildings have burned in fires that have swept the town, The Forgotten Cairn has never even been singed. Furnishings have been burned, but none of the structure. None of the original structure has ever needed to be replaced.
