The Standing Bear has a well-deserved reputation for excellence and is regarded by many as the finest of Olokand’s three inns. The innkeeper, Haselun of Elathel, caters to patrons with the means to pay for this distinction. For most of the year, the clientele includes wealthy guildsmen, caravan masters, well-off travelers, and Olokand’s more affluent locals.
During the Royal Chelebin Tournament of Chivalry in Larane, the Standing Bear is reserved for nobility and their retainers. The inn is closed to the general public while the nobles are in residence, although food and drink are still sold from windows facing Mycepris Square.
Freemaster ostler Narandin of Othendel is an expert horse healer with a reputation for saving animals that others consider hopeless.
