In the region where [female main name] is from, there sits a now refashioned three tier house that used to server as a luxurious hotel for the rich. The main floor had a service desk to the right, and to the left there held a great ballroom. In between its pillars were doors to respective bathrooms. Both upper floors had rows of rooms, the third tier being the most luxurious of its time as they had larger rooms and special service. This floor was often reserved for the elite and these rooms were large enough for meetings.

It was so popular that the reservations had a waiting list up to one year, unless someone canceled. There were a few Guardsmen to protect the place from dangerous monsters or visible Abominations. Even a protective barrier was put up around the buildings for extra measure.
The Silent Massacre
But that wasn’t enough for this one fateful night when every guest was asleep. Fewer Guardsmen were awake at this time, but they did alternate shifts to stay alert. However, they were not prepared for the Unseen Abominations. These ones played and toyed with the minds of everyone, even guests who were asleep had terrible nightmares and had even died in their sleep. Those were the peaceful deaths, despite its terrifying nature. The others who were awake were not so fortunate. To the outsider looking in, it was as if they had turned on each other and killed one another. In their mind they thought they were looking at something horrifying and not another human being.
This was the biggest massacre anyone in Mara had yet seen in their time.
