The tavern does not serve casteless. Furthermore, it is also known that it shares some ties with the Carta when it was under leadership of Beraht, since the owner of the tavern seen in the Dwarf Commoner Origin allows the Dwarf Commoner to find one of Tapster's current customers and kill him.

A Tale of Orzammar Edit
- If the Warden is a Dwarven Noble she will not give you any information, otherwise she can tell you about the Shaperate, the Diamond Quarter, Dust Town, and the Proving.
- You can order some drinks from her, either an ale for 2, some mead for 3 copper or order the best brew for your whole party for 1 20. This does not seem to have any effects except losing money however.
- Dwarven drinking song
The Warden can also listen to a dwarven drinking song here:
- "Ooohh, I've heard of dwarves who get in fights 'bout every time they drink,
- And those who need to have a woman just to help them think,
- And if you want to see a dwarf whine and beg and plead,
- Just pour out all his ale and take away his mead!
- There's never been a Paragon of Wisdom or of Thinking,
- And though I tried a time or two, I ne'r got raised for stinking,
