The Golden Bell
Standing hard by the Temple of the Abyss, the Golden Bell is a pawnshop for the poor and the desperate. The Bell carries weapons, armor, kitchen goods, tack and harness, jewelry, supposed spell keys, holy and unholy symbols, maps, and more. A few are magical or at least of superior workmanship. All goods are available for half the usual price, with no returns or promises of quality. The Bell is also famous as the home of a fence named Marisha the Fox, an alu-fiend whose left leg was crippled years ago, forcing her into semi-retirement. Many believe she is a spy for the tanar’ri in Sigil, but in fact the spy is her human husband, Pincher the Exile, a servant of the Abyssal Lord Baphomet. Pincher isn’t much in a fight, but he has powerful friends among the Temple of the Abyss and the tanar’ri in the city; his store has been robbed often, but the robbers almost always wind up floating face-down in the Ditch. The store’s bouncer is an enormous prime minotaur named Crookshank. His cloven hooves are shod in spiked iron, and he always carries a shield +2 and a powerful mace +3 named Thunderflash. Crookshank is actually a draw for the store: He’s bold, smart, rude, and barmy in an amusing
combination. He makes people laugh, even as Marisha and Pincher swindle them.
