Found in the mountains on the Hubward side of Wilinus Pass, the Inn of the Fifth Elephant is one of the first places to greet visitors to Uberwald. During The Fifth Elephant his Grace the Duke of Ankh somewhat surprised the patrons of the inn by appearing one cold night covered in mud and blood and with a loaded crossbow, having just fought his way through the bandits of Wilinus Pass. Those who dared venture out into the night found the remains of seven dead men, a number that rumor caused to grow to thirty by the morning.

The inn has a large picture of the head of the fifth elephant in red as its sign, a reference to the legend of the "fifth elephant".
