The Cracked Flagon is the tavern on the road to Castle Macindaw.
The keeper was a man named Cullum Gelderis, a nice man who was kind to Will and Horace on their undercover journey to take the castle from the grasp of Keren. Will first came as a jongleur and was popular among the customers. Then Horace came, under the name Hawken, but his cover was blown by a delighted Will. He then became more cautious, but still provided the two with good information and famous blueberry pie and boiled potatoes.
