Whore Street

On plainly named Whore Street prostitutes – or trollops, slatterns, tramps, strumpets, courtesans or harlots – stand in doorways and lean from windows throughout the day and night. As men walk by the women call out to them and list their virtues and each virtues price. The women have no pimps or Madames. Instead a gang called the Whore’s Bastards – many, but not all, of them the sons of the women who work the street – provides the women with protection from rough clients and those who refuse to pay, or simply beats anyone the women take a dislike to. A member of the Whore’s Bastards wears a woman’s undergarment hanging from his belt.

At the end of Whore Street is Lowtown‘s shrine to Kypris. Across the street lives the priest, Holden Littletree, a quiet and humble old man whom the women and the Whore’s Bastards are quite fond of, he’s been there for decades. This shrine is the only one in Lowtown with any congregation to speak of – the women gather every Kypris Day in the morning to listen to Holden Littletree speak a few words. It’s also the only shrine to receive any offerings of coin on a regular basis, these usually coming from the whore’s customers.
