Saloons (synonyms: watering holes, cantinas; example mythonyms: the Dusty Gemstone) are bars or taverns often found in fictional wild west worlds. At these locations there may be drinking, dancing, and frequent bar fights. Saloons may have swinging doors, windows people are thrown through, a piano, a long bar, and a dark corner table where a game of poker (or a fictional game) can be played. There may be rooms for rent upstairs. Outside may be hitching posts for horses and a bulletin board. Saloons may be found in frontier towns. They are home to cowboys, gunslingers, pioneers, prospectors, and brothel workers.
When designing fictional saloons, consider the owner (who may be a wealthy or influential person in town) as well as the bars’ frequent customers. There may be more than one saloon in town they may not get along.
