The Velvet Embrace
NOTE: Work in progress. Information will change and get added.
The Velvet Embrace houses are places where nobles can gather and spend an relaxing evening. There are beautiful women(and men) available to entertain the customers, be it through conversation or between the bed sheets. There are games and gambling available as well as music, singing and good food and drinks.
In essence, the houses are a combination of bar, brothel and gambling house, but they are of high quality and aimed solely at nobles.
Important Out-Of-Character Notes
- The “guild” is 99% role-play. There isn't really any other purpose other than to offer a place for some fun RP. If you can't handle that, don't bother joining.
- The Non-Player Characters described for each guild house are freely controllable by all players
- Your character is unlikely to know of the guild unless some other noble has mentioned it to him or he has been in a region with a guild house.
The In-Character Basics
The entertainers in the houses are well dressed and trained. They bathe daily and they have been taught to act in a manner that is appropriate in the company of a noble.
Customers are free to enter the houses openly or secretly, both options are available. They can hide their true identity behind masks if they so wish. All business done inside the houses is fully confidential and precautions are in place to thwart any information leaks.
