In The Shadow of Nerath
Cross roads isn’t a town per’se but a place where several major roads intersect. On this intersection sits a farmstead belogning to the Becker Family. Several generations ago they decided to capitilize on thier location and built an inn with adjoining stables and small Smithy on the southern tip of the farmstead. The Inn is known simply as Becker’s Inn. This has allowed them to make a steady income from the many travelers who frequent the roads. At one point the Knights of Nerath used the inn as a staging area to fight off a masssive orcish hoard that wondered in from the Ruinous Belt and threatened to overrun Chith. Hints of this proud history can be seen on the family mantle that sits above the fireplace on the main floor of the Inn.
The inn is a favorite of merchants, travelers and adventurers; because of its laid back atmosphere, good food, strong ale, proximity to a several important settlements and most importantly a complete lack of any organized authorities, though Cornellius Becker has been known to lay down the law from time to time.
