Golden Helm Inn is a food shop in Kharam Dzu. It is a prosperous-looking establishment with a uniformed dwarf at the door, located on Ghorsa Isle on the river Muagh. Adventurers can CHECK IN at the front desk in the lobby to adjust their skills, and there are private rooms upstairs.

The Golden Helm Hearth Room is located through a wood and glaes door east of the entrance. Here there are tables, added in the year 5120, where adventurers may sit and rest.

The Golden Helm Bar is located through the curved arch east of the entrance. It is outfitted with comfortable couches and a hearth and basket of sticks to make a fire. Hanging on the wall is the vultite claidhmore that once belonged to Thorgig Ten-Killer, a giantman warchief who signed the treaty at Mount Sunfist.

[Golden Helm, Bar] RNUM: 12505
Two soft horsehide couches are set before a cozy stone hearth. From behind the rosewood bar, a bald giantman grins perpetually. Great hooded candles are set on low tables along the walls, providing a soft, reddish light. On the wood-paneled walls, two paintings are hung next to a great vultite claidhmore. You also see a spotted hound that is lying down, a basket of sticks and a curved arch.
