The Palace Commons is a large chain of taverns spread across the Tosa/York realms. Recently they opened a Palace Commons in the City of Amber.
These are usually substantial and well appointed Inns that include many of the amenities of a good Las Vegas Hotel and those of a fine Apartment complex.
These places are usually sprawling affairs with dining halls, meeting rooms, fires, stables, practice grounds, apartments, even residential communities. They often offer financial advice, equipment storage and long term animal care. They frequently have hospital or convalescent space as well. Hiring boards, guild arrangements, tailoring, and equipment sales are common as well.
Founded in Wall, Tosa by Lop, a retired adventurer, the need for this kind of space caused the place to grow and franchise to expand.
CHAD-Clean Halls and Dens, is an unofficial guild of adventurers in the sword worlds that the Palace Commons is on. It hires caravan guards, mercenaries and other specialists as needed.

He is an imposing and often frightening presence. For reasons unclear, children seem to like him and he is often kind to them, telling them stories and giving them beef jerky or candy. He is not fond of crowds and usually acts as the Tyler for the Palace Commons or CHAD hall, sitting in his big chair, just outside the door. A friend of the Fairhands, he is often found in the presence of Venki Fairhand, singing softly, smoking, or sharing beef jerky.
