(short for “Houses of something-or-another,” or “something Houses,” though no one remembers exactly)

Established buildings where courtesans are trained, live, and do business. Mostly found in cities, or good-sized human towns. Must be owned by a member of the courtesans’ masters guild1 to advertise itself as a courtesan House.

Houses specialize in providing entertainment and companionship, and have rooms visitors may rent overnight or for up to a month at a time. However, they are considered distinct from inns, taverns, bars, or cheap whorehouses.

The masters guild pays for inspections to assure customers of compliance with its standards.

1 Offices are in Varalon and Trinity.
