The Cutlass is a loud and dangerous festhall in Luskan that is famous up and down the Sword Coast. Owned by Arumn Gardpec, it serves to pirates and merchants (that they may boast to have been a patron), fences, mercenaries and all other sorts of colorful personalities. Notoriously dangerous, the Cutlass' common room is renowned for the brawls that break out and wind up turning fatal. This number has increased so much so in recent times that the High Captains instituted a "no weapons" policy in the attempt to steer business to safer venues. This was attempted to no avail as evidenced by the damages done to the inn after spell duels. The Cutlass is essentially one continuous, violent party.
The cellar of the Cutlass is guarded by a golem that has been anonymously dubbed "Captain Reaper".
