A Roman inspired bath house meets laundry. The structure is divided into four main baths, Male, Female, Other, and Combined; all sections required undergarments to be worn at all times. The water is constantly flowing, heated in the central building, it then pours out into the other baths, which are built in tiers to promote water flow and cycling of old water out. You’ll find similar bath houses in cities, however towns usually only can manage a single bath if that. The baths are favored for a meeting place as it’s extremely hard to hide a weapon on your person when you’re down to your skivvies, it’s also a public and relaxing location. There are a few private rooms, pools sized comfortably for groups of eight, where they’ll draw a warm bath for you and a small group for a fee of four silver.
