Tales From the Yawning Portal
Durnan is the proprietor of the Yawning Portal and something of an enigma. Blessed with a seemingly limitless life span by treasures he brought back from his expedition nearly two centuries ago, he is as much a fixture in the taproom as the well.
He is a man of few words. He expects to be paid for his time, and will only offer insight and rumors only in return for hard cash. “We know the odds and take our chances,” he says, whether he is breaking up a card game that has turned violent or refusing the pleas of adventurers trapped at the bottom of the well who are unable to pay for a ride up. Despite his stony heart, he is an excellent source of information about Undermountain and other dungeons, provided one can pay his price.
He has given the information for the Sunless Citadel for free, do not expect further handouts from the dour man.
