Default Name the RPGWatch location in Realms Beyond

We have a bunch of NPCs we can place in a location in Realms Beyond. This poll is about what we should name that place.
As the poll is limited to 10, I just made a shortlist of what was already mentioned, but added an option to add a better name in the replies.

I can’t say I am in favour of the Watching Eye.

I think Myrthos’ place would be nice as well.

Voted for The Watchhouse btw.

In modern English you don't have to care about gender, but I think "The Watch" is feminine. So we have to say Ealde Waecce in old English.

Had to pick the first option myself. I'm good with whatever wins, though.

I think The Untermenschen would be a good name for our pub in this game.

"The Watcher's Guild" is the best one to me, by far. This is assuming they will have guilds in the game, and they could even incorporate this guild into the game, with quests to go on for the guild, and benefits to joining it, like secret trainers with special skills, etc.

If its not so ambitious, and more of a one location type deal, like an isolated bar or pub location, "The Vigilant Watcher" seems pretty good (and also simultaneously, neatly fits rpg watch's theme).

I think Watchers' Rest is pretty on point without breaking immersion.

Dart's is pretty good. It gives our underappreciated slavelord and high master kudos for all his hard work.

Our Watch name is not going to be recognized as our guild - people will just see it as the city watch or, at best, a Terry Pratchett reference (Any Eye's would be LotR of course).

Its a difficult choice. That's why I was suggesting a tribute to @Rendelius. We've already done a tribute to good old @Dhruin.

In the words of Mcdonald's founder "Keep it Simple, Stupid”

So my vote is for The Watcher's Rest

Assuming the location is a tavern, I'll vote for The Watchers' rest (especially since I suggested it myself…).

I really like Heart of Myrthos though.

Hm, I’d think the heart of Myrthos is his wife.

Having 10 Watchers scurrying around in my wife is really a no go.
