Chronicles of Khaldun: Bread and Circuses
The House of Black Lanterns
The House of Black Lanterns is a two-story inn that services travelers passing by Dead Man’s Cross. If it is not there when travelers arrive, it often appears in a patch of fog accompanied by the tolling of bells. A (relative) place of safety in the Shadowfell, the House of Black Lanterns offers accommodations for those passing through — either the living in the Shadowfell by happenstance, or the dead on their way to judgment.
The House of Black Lanterns often changes hands, but its current proprietor is Nishimura Kumiko, a human ghost from distant lands.
