Taverns: Rytande keeps one tavern open, despite the lack of customers. The doors in the Skratthinder remain open, and the torrian keeps a few barrels of ale and casks of mead on hand for when Gunbjorg requires refreshment or should new champions arrive to fulfill requirements of the compact. Other taverns that once overflowed with revelers include the Divine Fountain, the Champion's Chalice, and the Worthy Alehouse.

Supplies: When Silverstorstad was alive and vibrant, the Wondrous Market regularly set up Stalls and tents in the Gateyard. Other shops could be found in the Temple Marketplace that filled the area between the Gryningtempel and the Salavmästerskapet. Today, Rytande maintains a small stash of supplies in the Guardian's Tower for Gunbjorg.
