Also, while you may get a high result for a given service, that does not necessarily mean there are that many businesses in a given settlement. For instance, your town may show 15 tailors, but the DM may rule that there are only 6 clothiers in the town … the rest serve as assistants/apprentices.
The Quevin Town Elders (comprised of 3 Female/2 Male Humans and 3 Female/2 Male Sylvari) had been issued the task, under the authority of Mayoress Alesta de Quevin, of coordinating strategies for dispatching a wide variety of adventurers to specific missions in answer to the decree that had been issued 40 days ago by the Mayoress Alestra de Quevin and the membership of the Quevin Quiver.
As any knowledgeable bowman knows, a quiver contains 20 sharp arrows. Therefore the 'Quevin Quiver' is comprised of 20 'sharp arrows with sharp points' to confer together and vote upon issues of possible War and Defense that would affect each of their respective kingdoms and races.
Roll Call for Quevin Quiver:
4 Humans of the Quevin Town Council (2 Females and 2 Males)
2 Humans from Ertain (1 Female and 1 Male)
2 Sylvari [Elves ]from Alloryen the Northern Sylvari Kingdom (1 Female and 1 Male)
2 Sylvari [Elves] from Londelirinen the Central Sylvari Kingdom (1 Female and 1 Male)
2 Sylvari [Elves] from Mealamin the Southern Sylvari Kingdom (1 Female and 1 Male)
2 Khords [Dwarves] from Kharolis (1 Female and 1 Male)
2 Brathunspar [Gnomes] from Brathnaii Hallows (1 Female and 1 Male)
2 Cidals [Halflings] Shawlin Priests from Kindwell (1 Female and 1 Male)
1 Human Mage from the Court of the Empress of Coria (1 Female)
1 Half Elf owner of the Blue Noob Inn (1 Female)
The Half Elf owner of the Blue Noob Inn represents the voice of the common people and newcomers who frequent the tavern. She theoretically serves as a tie-breaker for any stalemated votes from the Mayoress and the rest of the membership of the 'Quevin Quiver'.
Since the region of Coria is ruled by an Empress (ala medieval France) the border town of Quevin honors the Empress by including Females in important positions of government and decision making. This includes Females from the other races serving in the ranks of the 'Quevin Quiver'.
The 'Quevin Quiver' includes all races who may be affected by any unusual activities originating from the unknown darkness that spreads from time to time from the cracks and crevices of the mysterious and foreboding dangers lurking throughout the Chakran Mountains (or from within the borders of their respective kingdoms and from any unwarranted influences or threats from any of the kingdoms to the west of Coria).
The current ruler is Empress Isabella of Coria and she has sent the Lady Marquise (who is the Royal Mage serving Empress Isabella of Coria) to represent Empress Isabella as a member of the 'Quevin Quiver' with all honor and respect due her position as the Royal Mage.
Blue Noob Inn
The Blue Noob Inn adjoins the Scarlet Tankard tavern, both are owned and operated by the beautiful 100 year young Half Elf Ranger named Avarial who explains in her own words:
"The Blue Noob Inn is famed far and wide ... at least in the area surrounding Quevin ... as a place where first-time adventurers are wont to assemble for an opportunity to seek fame ... and fortune ... for the right price ... as well as the right reason."
