The Madhouse [Barthelme's Residence]

As of Spring, Era XXII

Barthelme's latest abode was the largest space that he had resided in, ever. That still was not saying terribly much.

It was a modest home, devoid of ostentation, and located not terribly far from the asylum where the Twisted Mystic worked. Aside from being convenient for Barthelme, that placed it squarely in a cheaper area of town. Something about the close proximity to a building barely containing a small horde of murderous lunatics tended to drive the properties values down.

The house had three main rooms. A bedroom with attached bath, a combined living room and kitchen area, and a basement. It was mostly for the latter room that Barthelme had acquired the place. The upper rooms housed Barthelme's various knickknacks, mementos from his travels, and a little bit of Twisted paraphernalia whose nature was not immediately obvious. A broken mirror on one wall. His disassembled dreamcatcher. That sort of thing.

But down below, Barthelme kept the more obvious tools of his work. This included his Mask of Terror and Twisted Dagger... and, most of all, his Grafting equipment... and the exotic specimens with which he had collected in hopes of bringing his visions of the Otherlings to life in the physical world.

A trap door lead from the basement to the rest of the house. When he wasn't working, Barthelme kept a rug thrown over it. Best to let any casual visitors suppose that what saw of Barthelme's house was all of it that existed.

Items of note:


The painting hangs, framed, in a prominent place on one of the walls of Barthelme's living room. It depicts Usira, as she is seen by the Dreamwalker artist Hay'aan Malinconico. Not an exact likeness, literally speaking... but privately Barthelme concedes that Hay'aan successfully captured the essence of who Usira truly is.

A painting of Lyna, also by Hay'aan, hangs just next to the one of Usira. It was a gift to Barthelme from his former a'mael, and is therefore one of his most treasured possessions.
