d100 Empty Houses In Shadelport

Shadeloport has many empty buildings. Not just the pre human haunted ruined areas where only desperate or adventurers go, but throughout the city. The wealthier areas are hard for adventurers to enter and wealthy houses abandoned are often guarded and and the militia will protect then more and listen to complaints from locals. In the poorer areas abandoned houses are common and many are inhabited by squatters.

Slum lords often pay adventurers to clean out houses. Such houses are cheaper and a good investment if you can repair them and chase out squatters. Many have worse things than squatters however and some are very long abandoned.

I had whole campaigns revolve around real estate empires.

Properties are seldom empty when purchased. Some have tenants with leases (some for life and cheap). The rest have squatters or worse.
