Fantasy isn't usually my thing, but I can't help but feel that this idea would just be too much fun to pass up over such a simplistic reason.
My character would be a man on his travels. More importantly, he'd be a man on his travels with money that wasn't his. For that aspect of his tale, I was thinking that he might be charged with seeking aid of some sort for his village from wealthier individuals in the neighbouring towns and cities. It's of little consequence, because the whole point of the idea is that he doesn't spend the money on what he is supposed to, but rather, he falls under the spell of something else.
The establishment in question would be the dwelling of exiled female elves. Banished from their own society and each with their own sense of wicked bitterness, they have chosen to rebuke by plaguing upon Men. In fact, the town in question would be somewhat dwindling as the brothel continues to sap male pockets dry throughout the region.
With various incantations in place around the establishment and indeed within it, it is a place that foreigners to the area can scarcely resist. Upon entry, men soon fall drunk to the heady aroma of elvish mysticism in the air, and become clay in the elven dancers' hands, filling the coffers at the sides of the stage in the hope of gaining some sort of favour with the she-elves of the House. Beyond the striptease area of the lower floor, there would be an area above for men of true worth, whereby they could purchase some rather expensive time alone with one of the elves, their pleasure heightened by the magic in the air, their senses dulled, allowing the fair females to ask more and more of them, lest they be denied any further attention.
I need . . . a banished elf :)
Please, post here if you're interested in my idea. It won't exactly be first come-first served, I'd rather choose the woman who'd be more suited to the role. Take a look at my O/O thread for further ideas regarding where we could take this. I imagine that a certain amount of Domination would be required, particularly in the financial sense, so as to have true control over every male pocket in the place.
Any thoughts or comments?
