Manyfolk This large area of the city is home to the common folk, and is where most of the shops and businesses of the city can be found, from the Bluirren family (who make spiced sausages from Underdark creatures whose precise identities and origins are better not investigated too closely) to the Ulaver (whose luminous, sweet green wine is a growing taste among Menzoberranyr). It also home to the noble House of Oblodra, who have always had a treacherous, unpredictable, even insane reputation. Oblodren are known for fanaticism, reckless battle-rages, and for dabbling in the wildest magic and the most dangerous of the arts of the mind, continually pushing the boundaries of the dictates of Lloth.
When these do occur, they tend to be wild parties (extending, at times, to brawls and orgies), held because forces of the city have scored a major victory over foes outside the city, or because Lloth herself (her avatar) has appeared somewhere in the city, and not shown any anger or disfavor by issuing harsh decrees or meting out punishments. 51 What the Future May Hold Not even the gods can see all that well in to what lies before us, and has not befallen yet. Mortals peering into the future tend to see what they want to seeor fear most.

Her unadvertised sideline is providing material components for 28 making a deal first, and fighting later. In fights, Xalyth is known for keeping alert track of foes who work around to attack her from behind, while she confronts those in front of her. In her shop, Xalyth has several glass vials full of potent sleep-gas; if attacked, she can break one, forcing all within 90 to save versus breath weapon at -4, or fall asleep for 4d4 rounds.
