The Nightshade Inn is a bar and inn located inside the Gallwood Outpost. It is where most inhabitants or visitors sleep, drink, or gamble. The inn was run by Elinor Chadwick until she stepped down to serve Queen Rosmund.
In "The Vex Rezicon", Everit Dred and his men arrived at Gallwood Outpost to purge it of everything that stands against the Prime Orders ideology. They storm the Nightshade Inn and Mistress greets him, asking if he wants food or drinks. He dismisses her and commands that his soldiers rally all the women in the inn together. When the women begin lining up only to have their hands ruthlessly cut, Mistress asks what he's looking for she might be able to help. Dred coldly responds that unless she can tell him who bleeds black blood in the Outpost, she's of no use to him. Mistress insists that she doesn't know, pricks her finger to prove it isn't her, then goes to leave. Because Mistress was confident toward Dred, one of the men throws her to the ground on Dred's signal. Munt attempts to intervene but was restrained and beaten by the soldiers. Dred then commands his soldiers to destroy every bottle and barrel in the Inn, as he wants the Outpost dry.
Dred's men gather up all the gold, silver, and dishes they can find under the grounds of Mistress breaking the law. When she delivers his food she protests against his methods and asks what laws she could be breaking. He informs her that gambling, drinking, and prostitution are strictly illegal. Mistress stands up to him saying that his soldiers brought prostitution in, not her or her girls. The soldiers deny the claims. Higgs even calls it the “spoils of war”. He threatens to assault Mistress but Dred stops him saying that he’s eating. Mistress spits on Higgs and tells him there, "won’t be a next time".
That night, Wythers, Danno, Mistress, and Munt take back the Nightshade and use it out as ground zero for the rise-up to retake the Outpost. They recruit dozens, if not hundreds, of citizens in the Inn to discuss the uprising.
In "We Only Kill to Survive", Janzo is still working as a master brewer and winemaker. He finds himself torn between his life as a brewer and his life as a scientist and master alchemist. The Mistress has become more demanding of him. Munt helps pick up the slack that has been created due to Janzo's multiple jobs.
