he cottage wasn't always used as a public inn, as it was once owned by a private owner rarely ever seen. This owner was commonly called by the locals 'La Verde Strega', a sort of magic woman who kept to herself. It all changed when three wanderers thought the cottage to be abandoned and decided to spend a few resting nights there. Enchanted by the cottage's charm these nights became weeks, and soon months, and all this time they weren't once kicked out by 'La Verde Strega'. However, the new residency of the cottage didn't go unnoticed by the locals, noticing how the cottage seemed more alive then ever, they began to wonder if 'La Verde Strega' left the cottage after all. Which was a very foolish thing to believe. Then one day came when the three wanderers found proof that they weren't the only three in the cottage; for on the first day of them noticing, all the food in the cottage seemed to disappear, and on the second day all the currency in the cottage seemed to have vanished, and on the third day by a pitcher of water and daisies was a note scrawled on stained paper instructing the three wanderers to head to the boarded up astronomy tower behind the cottage. Having followed instructions the three headed behind the cottage to the old astronomy tower, and knocked on the boarded up old gnarly door. And upon the third knock the two were able to phase through the very door itself as if crafted by magic! It was then that the three wanders met the owner of the cottage who was still very alive and well. Returning the food money which she had only taken to get their attention, the witch would express her gratitude for bringing her old cottage back to life, and hoped they would be able to continue doing so, under the condition that they allow wanderers and travelers of all shapes, size, race, origin, and so forth, the chance to also take shelter and warmth there as they had once done, as well as run a few errands for herself. The three were reluctant at first, thinking this to be some sort of trap or trick, but with much reassurance from the witch they would agree to honor the witch's wishes.
