Serving Wench, Civilized Most every tavern in civilized lands employ women to serve their patrons. Serving wenches are clever gatherers of information, friendly company or comely redistributers of wealth. Many a drunken adventurer has lightened his purse considerable in the company of a buxom serving wench. Serving wenches often endure their somewhat demeaning employment while they await a chance to enter a more exciting or rewarding occupation.
