The Hobbit bartender is a good and friendly trader NPC, who will be happy to trade with anyone that is not evil. They sell much food and buy materials to produce even more food.
Upon trading with a Hobbit bartender, the player earns the achievement "Welcome Customer".
Hobbit bartenders will keep their place behind the bar of their tavern, waiting for anyone who wants to buy drinks or food. When you kill anyone in the tavern or have a negative Hobbit alignment, Hobbit bartenders will refuse to trade with you.
When attacked, they will try to flee.
In each tavern, one bartender will spawn behind the bar table. They will not naturally spawn anywhere else.
