My vote is for common occurrence.

Yup. Even if he weren't being so casually matter-of-fact about it, he just finished saying that he'd expected plenty of adventurer business.
Cater to adventurers, and they tend to bring adventure with them.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

Agreed. Suddenly dead people can mean lots of things.

Honestly, Sitting in one place like this could be a pretty good way of gaining XP. Thwarting Assasination attempts on your customers, tracking down unpaid bartabs, Deliberately not paying your Protection money to the local mob, are all good sustanable ways of getting enough trouble to justify CR appropiate encounters without having the trouble of leaving town.

Tankards and Taverns 3rd Edition.

That would actually be an interesting premise for an RPG. One might think that things would get kind of same-y after a while, but I'd think a popular tavern would always be attracting new and interesting people with new and interesting problems. Plus, you can have the city itself go through changes, like getting conquered by a foreign power, or having a new crime lord rise to power, or a corrupt cop takes over the police department.

Really, you don't have to leave town to find adventure, you can always make the adventure come to you. You could also expand the idea to include more NPC type jobs, like playing as shopkeepers or local guards. You could be the guy who cleans the sewers, lots of potential for adventure there.

This actually sounds like a LOT of fun. After I get moved and get back in touch with my group, I'll see if anybody else shares my interest. One of them is big on adventuring, so it will probably just be a fun idea to consider and nothing more.
