The Evilest Little Cathouse in Freedonia
Visitors to the small, rural town of Butterwort, Freedonia, will find themselves encouraged to sample the pleasures offered by Stang House (supposedly named for the New Ylourgne madame held to have opened it in '52)--a “sporting house” in the antiquated local parlance. A short trip to the edge of town will reveal suggestive silhouettes behind gauzy curtains in the house’s windows, and the faint, but seductive sounds of feminine laughter, music, and general merriment coming from within.
Those entering the house will find things very different from what they expected. The inside is pink-walled and pulsating. The undulating floor is slick with secretions, and possibly strewn with glistening (and softening) bone. Should one try to turn and run for the door, he will find the opening tightly sealed. Then the caustic, acrid smelling liquid will begin to spew forth in gouts from the walls....
Living House: AC 6 (outside) 10 (inside); HD 20; Attacks: 1 (acid, 2d6 per round). There is a 50% chance that the house will disgorge its prey after it has taken 25% or more of its total hit points in damage.
The living cathouse was inspired by the gardinel from the stories of Manly Wade Wellman.
