It's not an important inn. It's just a waystation at which something bad happens, if it hadn't happen there, it would have happened somewhere else. . . .
So I was pondering what sort of sign and name to give it. Too blatant -- the Necromancer's Rest -- and our hero looks a fool. But something like The Hound and the Hare, or the Fox and the Grapes -- no, I want something that the hero will think bitterly ironic after. If he doesn't blame himself for trusting it in an inn named that in a fit of excessive guilt.
I think I'm aiming for something with a Raven in it.
