Against the Elemental Evil
This modest sized building is a trading post owned by the Lionshields, a merchant company based in the city of Yartar, over a hundred miles to the east. It is constructed of finished timber, with a fieldstone foundation. It features a hanging sign shaped like a wooden shield with a blue lion painted on it. The windows are clear and clean. The interior is lined with shelves containing all manner of finished trade goods, including weapons and armor.
The Lionshield Coster is run by Linene Graywind with great efficiency and skill. The merchant company crafts goods in distant Yartar and then ships them to be sold in Phandalin and elsehwere. Linene can usually special order almost anything, given enough time and the proper amount of gold. Upon rare occasion she manages to get her hands on magic items.
