Lucky Bones

From PathfinderWiki

For centuries, Lucky Bones was a notorious gambling house and drug den sat in the heart of Old Kintargo, but it was burned down in a raid by Hellknights of the Order of the Torrent. Unbeknownst to most, Lucky Bones had long served as a legitimate front for the notorious Gray Spiders guild which operated out of the basement below it.[1] The Gray Spiders ran an abduction and slavery ring linked with the Cult of Norgorber. When this was discovered by the Order of the Torrent, the Gray Spiders responded by assassinating the order's founder Lictor Reya Naulvaneti provoking the raid that burned Lucky Bones to the ground.[2]

The upper portions of Lucky Bones have never been rebuilt; the basements remain, and are still inhabited. They are mostly controlled by Kintargo's small cult of Mahathallah led by the changeling cleric Luculla Gens, owner of the nearby Sweet Tooth.[1] They upper dungeons are still haunted by the ghost of the Gray Spiders last leader Guildmistress Lorelu, as well as the spirit of some of the drug addicts she exploited, returned as wretchghosts.[3] Below even this are the flooded smugglers' tunnels used by the Gray Spiders to secretly transport their terrible cargo, and run their people-smuggling ring. Now, these tunnels are under the control of a tribe of skum led by an enchanter named Ungol-Pagh who serve the alghollthu master necromancer Menotheguro.[4] They have brought with them a veritable menagerie of guardian creatures including devilfish,[5] reefclaws,[6] and even shell sentinels.[7]

The Lucky Bones also has a large shrine that has been dedicated to two separate gods, both gods of deception. When under the control of the Gray Spiders, the shrine was dedicated to Norgorber but, with the coming of Luculla Gens, the shrine was rededicated to the whore queen Mahathallah.[2]
