The famous Hall of Splendid Valor is run by Belende the Showy and is located in the Fire Quarter of the city of Kalsgard, in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings. It sits at the pinnacle, in terms of cost and quality, of the rather large number of brothels in Kalsgard, and especially in the Fire Quarter. Upon entering, guests are met by escorts dressed as azatas, their costume consisting of a pair of fake wings and little else. The patrons are then escorted to a feasting hall—supposedly modelled on those of Valenhall, in distant Arcadia—where warrior women, dressed in scanty and highly impractical 'armour', engage in mock combat. Once the feasting and combat is completed, patrons retire with their chosen escort to one of the many bedrooms.
