Make Achaean inns have actual rooms for rent which provide privacy, and with artefact beds included
There are inns in Achaea, be they in a town like the Dancing Boar of Cyrene or out on the road like the Brass Lantern. In a real-life hotel, which is of any real quality, the walls are thick so you can have privacy, and if artefact beds were added, that would get house-like privacy for rent even for those who don't actually own a home or a bed in it.
So basically, make a floor or two in each existing hotel with a couple rooms for rent. Paying the bartender for a room unlocks it for you and reserves it for you for 24 rl hours. Each inn room itself should have the Privacy house upgrade, and there should be a bed in each room for the... uh... EXTRA privacy. For those twenty-four hours, only you can open that door, as if it were a house with your perms letting only you enter. After that, it can be paid for and occupied again. If all the rooms are filled, the innkeep says he or she has no vacancies.
Some people will want a private place to talk, and real life hotels do sometimes serve as a meeting point to talk away from prying ears. And, of course, sometimes you just want to say "get a hotel room, you two," and this would actually do the trick. I really doubt it would decrease house or bed sales; sneaking into a hotel in real life suggests some things, so you probably don't always want to risk being seen going in the hotel. If anything it probably will make people want homes and beds so they don't need hotels anymore. But regardless of the particulars, I think this will fill a real need in Achaea, and it will definitely up the realism of the game.
Thank you for reading my idea.
