A tavern or inn is a place where people gather to drink alcoholic beverages and be served food. In some cases, travelers may also be able to receive lodging. In Thedas there are several taverns and inns that can be encountered, usually close or inside populated areas.
There, except other things, the player can meet other characters as well as listen to rumors. Furthermore, the Dalish tribes as well as the Qunari, do not seem interested in establishing taverns or inns.
