Dirge for Ammad
As with any city, Ammad has those with worries and cares. For a bit of gold, people can spend their hard-earned money on Blood Lotus, allowing them temporary escape from their problems. The Lotus Houses are scattered here and there throughout the city, but the largest concentration of them can be found in the Swan Ward. Completely legal, these operations vary in style and quality. Most suit their clientele, but those in the Swan Ward are primarily meant for upper-class individuals.
The importation and sale of Blood Lotus are taxed in Ammad, and this provides a healthy portion of the city government’s operational budget.
