Swords and Deviltry in Lankhmar
Plaza of Dark Delights
In the southern part of the city, nestled among tenement buildings filled with tiny apartments, sits one of the great wonders of all of Lankhmar. The Plaza of Dark Delights is a merchant venue unlike any other. During the day, it hosts the normal assortment of street vendors hawking their bread, curios, and trinkets, but at night, when the sky grows dim, the daytime merchants clear out, making way for the purveyors of the unusual, the exotic, and the illegal.
By custom, few lights glow in the Plaza of Dark Delights at night. The only illumination comes from tiny, hooded lanterns, captured glowing insects, and more eldritch sources. Merchants do not speak loudly; they converse in soft whispers and beckon in order to sell their wares. Anything rare and mysterious can be found for sale in the plaza, and citizens from every part of the city find their way here from time to time.
