Laughing Lamia Inn


The Laughing Lamia Inn is one of the largest and most prominent taverns in Emon.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Laughing Lamia is located in the Abdar's Promenade district of Emon.[1] The tavern is four stories tall, centered around a large tavern room filled with dozens of tables. Surrounding the tavern is an eclectic series of rooms built at various times in the inn's history, each with varying themes.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The Laughing Lamia was built some time shortly after Emon's founding, likely in the mid-to-late 400s PD. As such it has had many owners over the years, and each time it traded hands the building was built upon and expanded until it became the four story tavern it is by the 800s PD.[2]

When the adventuring party Vox Machina first arrived in Emon to investigate who had sent Skysunder's egg to Westruun, they stayed at the Laughing Lamia.[3] The inn became their base within the city until their keep, Greyskull Keep, was constructed. Thereafter, it remained their tavern of choice whenever the party went out for drinks. After successfully rescuing Kima and defeating K'Varn in the Underdark beneath Kraghammer, Vox Machina started their celebratory pub-crawl at the Laughing Lamia.[4]

By 836 PD, the Laughing Lamia is owned by a cheerful and brash woman named Luthania Wells.[2]
