The Widow's Web

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And tempted Miss Muffet away.
The Widow's Web stretches across the shadows; out of the way for many, but never as far as they might think. It serves a simple and singular purpose, the expression of desire. It isn't some grand show like the Cirque, nor anything as base as a strip club. No, instead the Web invites interaction with the Puppet Widows that serve the establishment and it's Mistress. It thrives on the primal need to dominate or submit, it binds and fastens both customer and captive alike into a tangled skein. It encourages all sorts of deviant play, in complete anonymity if one desires, for both the clients and the puppets. Come in, relax, be yourself; or even better, let the Mistress decide who you should be...

The Widow's Web is always willing to accept requests to acquire a certain hero or villain for a night of service if one is willing to pay the price. Money, favor, or even time spent as a Puppet servicing others usually serves as adequate payment.

Behind the Scenes

While the front of the Widow's Web is that of an intimate BDSM lounge, the web sprawls out behind it across many an interest. While some of the Puppet Widows did indeed consent, many more had some level of conditioning. The exact method or even the intensity changes from puppet to puppet, some temporary trophies, others so far gone they wouldn't know how to survive without the Mistress' care. Many are kidnapped citizens, a few others defeated heroes, and beyond that a few ill-fated villains as well. Of course, none of this is known publicly, brainwashing and mind-control is terribly tricky to prove, and many wear helmets or masks to hide their true identities when not under the thrall of the Mistress.

Past the business front itself is just rumor and layers upon layers of hearsay. Whispers of the Mistress growing an army, or finding new technology, studying magic, and dabbling in mad science. Some even suppose the Mistress seeks to resurrect an organization long dead even before the end of the world. It's funny how those rumors get started, and funnier still that those who try to investigate usually find themselves indulging themselves as a Puppet for a very long time.

We seek all sorts, those with the will to bind the Puppets to the web, those who crave the exhilaration of being bound, and those who just like to indulge in a darker side of themselves. Superheroics is all just a thinly veiled game of Sadism and Masochism after all, why not just cut to the core of it.

Those Involved

This seems like quite an interesting faction!

The way of being informed about it was a lot of fun to roleplay and I'm definitely interested in joining and learning more about it.

Seems like a good focal point to start roleplay.

This sounds fun once you get it up and running. Might even have a villain that could contribute to that ;)

So...... built a character that was along these lines even before I seen this forum. What are the chances it is still going to get up and running?
