Pie Shop is a food shop in Wehnimer's Landing. It was located in a bright yellow building in the Small Park, just south of TSSW. The pie shop was burned down the 4th of Olaesta in unknown circumstances (unknown to Ordim).

[The Pie Shop] RNUM: 25985
Bright yellow paint coats the walls, which are bordered with grinning white skulls outlined in black. The mishmash of variegated unfinished wood plank flooring is topped by several chairs and tables that surround a broad pristine display counter laden with pies and other edibles. Snaking through three large street-facing windows, swathes of moonlight mingle with smoldering candlelight, though the illumination does little to chase away the darkness that engulfs the far corners of the shop. You also see a swinging door.

The sign will change its name from time to time

Inky black liquid tendrils lethargically seep out of a large wooden sign titled "The Pie Shop: Once Eaten, Twice Pie", wrapping it so completely that the lettering at the top is completely obscured.  The tendrils languidly slink around it, then recede completely leaving the shop with a new name: "The Pie Shop: Live Free and Pie Hard".

In the display counter you see:

a tart lemon-cherry pie 400
a fluffy cranberry pie topped with swirls of dark chocolate 400

Kitchen

[The Pie Shop, Kitchen] RNUM: 25986
Spick and span, the kitchen is well-stocked with various baking paraphernalia, all organized in handily placed cabinets and wicker baskets, several of which are attached to the bright yellow walls. Situated adjacent a swinging door and an open hearth, a spacious grey stone counter provides substantial ingredient preparation and dough-rolling space, and a wide chalkboard spans the wall above it. Two large ovens and an oddly shaped machine share the back wall, opposite a basin, some wooden buckets, and a stone case of midding size.
Obvious exits: none

Backroom

[The Pie Shop, Backroom] RNUM: 25987
Dim candlelight flares, waxing and waning to create uneven, writhing streaks of luminescence in the otherwise shadowy surroundings. Constructed of mismatched planking in a variety of hues, the floor's unfinished wood provides a distinct counterpoint to the bright yellow walls. A large display counter takes up the majority of the room's space, nearly obfiscating a rickety stairway leading down. You also see a dark-curtained arch.
Obvious exits: none

a glass of chilled clotted blood 250

Basement

[The Pie Shop, Basement] RNUM: 25988
Well-packed earth sends a loamy aroma floating through the chilly air and makes up the entirety of the capacious basement's walls and floor. A small, disordered pile of crates and an exceedingly large mountain of crates are stacked near one another behind a rickety stairway. Flickering lanterns hang from several hooks in the plank ceiling, casting three charcoal-hued couches, a dead root table, and a partially preserved cook's assistant corpse in a dappled mixture of light and shadow.
Obvious exits: none
