Kandorr's Fine Perfumery


On the intersection of Noble Avenue and First Street lies Kandorr’s Fine Perfumery. The shop occupies the entire building which is built in a classical style with majestic marble pillars and stylish stained glass windows.

On the intersection of Noble Avenue and First Street lies Kandorr’s Fine Perfumery. The shop occupies the entire building which is built in a classical style with majestic marble pillars and stylish stained glass windows.

Not only is Kandorr’s the place where the nobility and rich merchant families buy their expensive perfume, it is also a social scene in its own right. The topic of discussion at galas and in the Prince’s court, often is what this Baroness or that Duchess wore and shopped at Kandorr’s.

Kandorr himself is something of a celebrity among the rich and powerful. He favours extravagant close fitting shirts and all the trappings of a true connoisseur. Although he is getting elderly, his silver tongue and charming ways still makes young women blush and their male companions jealous. He has taken to wearing hats lately, as his hair is growing thin, a fact that has given him panic attacks on more than one occasion.

His expensive perfumes are made in the perfumery in the cellar. Unbeknownst to the general populace Kandorr is an accomplished alchemist and collector of rare material. In contrast to his shop, which is tastefully decorated to exhibit his perfumes, the cellar is crammed with shelves which are filled beyond their capacity. Indeed one must often squeeze between shelves filled with all manner of ingredients, an exercise of claustrophobic proportions. Not only is the space limited, the rank odours of both failed experiments and open cauldrons of perfume in the making, makes the room unpleasant to be in at best.

This is where Kandorr performs his research and a place that is forbidden to enter for anyone save Kandorr. Strange bubbling liquids and coloured powder, dead kittens in glass bottles and cages filled with colourful birds half-plucked of their feathers. Kandorr uses ingredients his clientele would find distasteful.

Kandorr’s way to the top was a hard one and at one time he served as a poisonmaker in the service of a powerful crime lord. This crime lord will not relinquish his hold on Kandorr, or "Death Nag"? as was his former nickname, and has lately made several threats against him. The head of the powerful crime faction wants to socialize with the powerful and sees Kandorr as the perfect opportunity.

Kandorr only wants to keep his current fame and fortune and does not at all want to introduce his former associate to his new found friends.

This is a good dramatic location. It gives you a story, some backstory, interesting NPC, with plot hooks attached, and places to go from here. Everything I could want in a location.

It not only gives you an establishment, it gives you a neighborhood.

I like the NPC. The little hat detail is cool. Now he is going to cause a whole trend of wearing hats.

Dead Leaves

       By: Murometz

An insidious creature, most likely somehow "related" to trappers and lurkers, the Dead Leaves (for no other name exists as of yet for this foul thing), hibernates for three of the four year's seasons, deep underground. Its active time is Autumn, when trees shed their leaves, depositing colorful carpets across the ground. The terror then emerges and blends in with the surrounding leaves, perfectly camouflaged, waiting patiently for unsuspecting victims. In appearance it resembles nothing more than a ten foot square, six inch thick, layer of bright yellow, orange, and red leaves. The only hint that someone is walking on top of it, comes in the form of an unusual amplified sound of leaves crunching underfoot. Too late usually, the victims notice this additional "crunch". The Dead Leaves will then swirl and "rise" up to smother and suffocate the victim, like a colorful, malevolent, boa constrictor.

Fire, as can be imagined, is particularly effective against this creature, but one has to *know* it's there before putting it to the torch. And there's the rub. The creature is impossible to "identify" in a large patch of fallen leaves by eyesight alone.
