38 The Neighborhoods of the City function as both guards and spies; Yuimmith sells information as well as lending money. Any secret of the city that can be learnt, Menzoberranyr say, Yuimmith has for sale. High-risk loans (to merchants who must travel the Underdark before they can see profit enough to repay, a fugitive from drow justice, or someone widely known around the city to be in trouble with a powerful drow House) typically are at 20% to 25% or more, and require collateral left in the lenders possession, to the value of 150% of the loan.
Eastmyr also has at least four roominghouses useful to non-drow visitors to the city wishing to avoid attention, cold treatment, and high prices. Two of these, Narbondels Shadow and Symeeras, are recommended (both are run by careful, fair human ex-adventurers, who know contacts for the discreet hire or purchase of needed magic, healing, weapons, and other gear within the city). Typical rates are 1 gp/person/day (includes all meals, basic drink, stabling for a mount, and a private room with a glowglobe light source).
Guards are always alert, shopkeepers keep their establishments always open for business, and House agents are always trying to meet with visiting merchants, to make deals. To impress such visitors, and to discourage those who might secretly be examining the city for any signs of weakness, drow Houses put on special demonstrations of magic and martial readiness, to awe potential foes and rivals. It is common for House armies to execute precision aerial maneuvers in full battle armor, for high priestesses and wizards to fly grandly through the air while sipping drinks or playing at various games and gambling diversions, and even for staid and dignified masters of Sorcere to engage in spellhurling competitions, or in spectacular sequences of meant-to-impress shape changes.
