The Singing Mermaid, Randolf the Barkeep (Expert Smuggler/Barkeep Pathfinder CR 6)
The Singing Mermaid is an inn beside the docks, it is frequented by both sailors and sea captains alike, stocking some of the best spirits money can buy. It is rumored that for the right price Randolf the Barkeep can get hold of just about any type of liqueur.
For an ale house in the docks there are surprisingly few fights in the Singing Mermaid, any trouble is usually quickly dissipated by Randolf, either by calming every one down and offering a drink on the house, or by persuading those concerned to take their argument outside.
Randolf the barkeep is a 40 year old half-elf, he is rather handsome, 6ft tall with brown hair and eyes, though he has lost his left hand, and now has a hook. Randolf loves talking about the time he was a sea captain, most of the adventures are just made up stories though, he has five different tales about how he lost his hand, the best being the time he wrestled a shark. The reality was that a large barrel of smuggled dwarven fire brew came loose in a storm and dropped on his hand crushing it against the rail.
Randolf used to be a smuggler he has now retired, he does though, still have many contacts. He is still willing to buy and sell contraband to those he trusts, for the right price of course.
