Blood of Rome
The Green Amphora
The Green Amphora is built into the base of an Insulae near the Flavian Amphitheater. A crude wooden sign hangs out front of an amphora painted sickly green. Inside, patrons are greeted with a simple counter, chairs and tables, poor lighting, the stink of stale ale and the leering grin of the Caponae’s hunchbacked owner, Spurius Paetus.
The Green Amphora has access to a cellar where vats hold watery ale. A few of the vats are hollow, lead lined and sealed closed by a special combination lock developed by Servius. Anyone trying to break through the vats using more forceful means may trigger pressurised salt acid which sprays forth when the vat is compromised.
Members of the coterie can access these vats to hide during the day when they find themselves caught too far away from home.
