Red Lantern Society is tentatively opening it’s doors to players looking to explore content built by adults for adults. A delicate name inspired by the hanging crimson lanterns of Kugane’s own pleasure houses and districts, the Red Lantern Bordello serves as the focal point for the Society’s business – a brothel nestled in the quiet Lavender Beds, featuring breathtaking views both within and without.

 

Founded and managed by Tsukiko Tanshi, an exile from the Far East who entered into the profession as a means of making sure both she and her father would never need to risk themselves in their refugee status, the business is built two-fold; to allow prostitutes, companions, and other variations of erotic workers or those who dabble in the business a place where they can work safely and without threat to their person, and giving those who have no place to go but offer skills that can support the brothel under the Silver Lotus Rehabilitation Clinic.

 

Our desire as a free company is to add to the community in a positive manner; we’re adult-focused and aware of the stigma that comes with that, but we wish to bring together creative players and characters who are interested in not just participating in a brothel and rehabilitation atmosphere, but also engage with the community as a whole. We want to network, entertain, adventure, and just generally enjoy ourselves while maintaining high-quality interactions that leave those who choose to interact with us feeling comfortable about returning, and bringing friends.

 

We are not an entertainment company in the grandest sense of the term. While we might hire a performer to entertain for a private party, we do not encourage the application of those who absolutely need a stage to stand on. We’re not a theater troop, we’re not a cabaret, we’re not a discotheque. Our entertainment comes in the form of quiet and intimate lounge nights where patrons can enjoy the company of those who work in the brothel, loaning out staff and services to other free companies who might need some extra hands for an event they’re running, exclusive and playful events where all business members can enjoy a night off while getting to know one another, and more – on top of the obvious.

 

We’re small, and wish to remain such. We do not encourage the application of those who are looking for constant activity online – while we’re still figuring out just how many we want our ‘small’ to be, chances are that we will experience content and activity lulls harder than other free companies because we’re aiming for high quality over high quantity. We’re not looking for dramatics, and we are firm that our members are expected to maintain a positive face in the community, both in-game and on any media related to it. We’re adults entertaining adults, and expect all involved to behave as such.

 

We’re currently looking for:

 

     ✓ Employees of all types - the dual aspect of the free company is intentional, as the business is built to be able to support itself while offering characters the opportunity to develop their own skills. Is your character someone who lost their job and needs a place to get some funds between work? A trader who knows how to find a good deal? A craftsman who needs a purpose? A mercenary who wouldn’t mind a stable bed and a good meal in exchange for keeping a few workers safe while they go about their duties? Get in touch! You do not have to play a sexual character to be in the free company, you just need to be okay with knowing it happens.

 

     ✓ Alliances and Associates – we’re out here to network and ally businesses together. We want to add flavor to other free companies with the same heart as us. Do your broody sea swabbies need a night of decompression at a comfortable place? Does your bar need a few pretty faces to sling drinks and get those meals out? Do you have a job that might need a bit more muscle than what you’ve got on hand? Look us up! We want to help build your stories and add to our own, and keep the world feeling a little more alive.

 

     ✓ Freelancers – already in a free company and don’t want to leave, but you want to explore that side of your character? Hey, we want to help that. Freelancers are pseudo-members of the business, and the pool that we dive into if we don’t have what a client needs, which is going to happen with our size. We don’t care what free company you’re in, even if it’s another adult business! We just want to help you get out there and have some fun in a different way. You’re never pressured to join, and you’re always able to decline an offered job. Get your role-play, even if it’s not your current FC’s focus!

 

     ✓ Community – we’re not interested in unfriendly competition. We know the market has plenty of adult-centered venues and free companies, and we want to work with them however we can to enrich everyone’s play. If we end up not being the right brothel for a prostitute or companion character, we want to be able to suggest another that might be more up their alley. When we have characters who have reached the point that it’s time to move on, we want to be able to help them connect with people who will keep that angle going, and we want to be on the list for people to feel good about doing the same with us.

 

     ✓ Roomies – if you’ve got yourself a character that is capable of making a room and you want to lend a hand, we’d love to take them in! Room assistants are OOC members (usually) who have kindly donated characters to help us build up private rooms that expand on the brothel and rehabilitation clinic, as we have a small plot and space is limited. We’re happy to help finance decorating, and have several crafters and gatherers on hand. Can’t think of an idea for a room but want to help? We’re constantly considering ideas, so if this interests you, just let us know!

 

We’re not interested in:

 

     ✗ Drama & Gossips – we support in-character drama, we don’t endorse out-of-character dramatics. If you can’t play well with others, can’t share the limelight or take the time to help others who are struggling, you aren’t going to find a fit in the community we’re building. We are also very strict about our confidentiality and hold a ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ mentality for a lot of what we do. What people come to us for is their business, and we expect our members to respect that.

 

     ✗ Underage Players/Characters – while we may sometimes run an event made for all ages (a good example is our Wolf & Rabbit hunt, which is a playful hide-and-seek in the open world), the business itself is by adults, for adults. We require anyone who enters into the building with the intention of interacting to be over the age of eighteen, both in-character and out, and this extends to prospective members as well. This extends to your guests, as well. Please, don’t put anyone in an uncomfortable situation, it’s not okay.

 

     ✗ Expecting Handouts – this is a big no-go. While we allow alternate characters as well as main characters, and characters of all levels, we’re not a parking space. Our small size comes with the expectation that those who want to be a part of the free company are willing to help build it up, and this goes even into Discord. We get that the head space for a character can leave as fast as it came around, but if the only time that you’re around is when there’s gil to be made or you show no participation in collaborative discussions, we’ll consider ourselves an ill fit and you’ll be dismissed.

 

This did get long, so if you got through all of that, you’re wonderful. Have questions or are interested? Feel free to send me a PM here, or contact me on Discord @ Tsukiko Tanshi#9604. I’m happy to answer anything, or even begin networking!

[[ The Red Lantern Society will be closed to new applicants from June 28th - August 1st. As we close up the end of the first arc of one of our members and it heralds the start of new trials and tribulations for the business, we want to give our newest members and prospects the opportunity to integrate into the community and familiarize themselves with how we work while everyone enjoys the expansion content at their leisure and without stress. If you wish to apply, it is best that you do so now so we can get you in during this final period!

 

Recruitment will begin again during the first week of August, while our community events will follow sometime in the month. While we will not be hosting public events during July, we are still welcoming of drop-ins and those who just wish to chill out with our community, and it's a great way to get to know us before applying! Happy hunting during the expansion!

 

You can find a wealth of information about us on our Carrd and our application is here. ]]
