House of Pain

Work in progress!

Slightly NSFW!
The House of Pain is the ideal destination for those who enjoy getting their knickers in a knot. It is conveniently located just outside the city walls of Bridgeport and provides amusement for anybody who can afford it while also ensuring that every request is met, no matter how difficult the task.
This is GM information
However, not everyone who comes to this place does so on their own accord. They were enticed to the location or even transported there in a sack with the intention of extracting important information from them.   Thessaly Cadenza is the mistress of the house, and she only hires the most beautiful and skillful ladies she can find. Women with specialised skills, such as surveillance, assassination, thievery, and information retrieval, are also employed by the House. Their garb is that of a nun, and they are never seen in it when they are about the House in order to prevent anyone from making the connection between them and the House itself.


A series of modest houses near the main structure has been purchased and converted into an empty shell in order to conceal the building in the back yard of the property.

"The House of Pain is the ideal destination for those who enjoy getting their knickers in a knot."   That is one hell of an opening sentence! Bravo, sir! And I love the style of your map, too.
