Barb Street Flats

From Degrees of Lewdity Wiki

How to Enter

From Barb Street the player can choose to:

  • Cross the bridge to the flats (If project in Mayor's Office is complete.)
  • Cross the canal to the flats

Canal Encounters

Each time the player cross the canal during the day, they will encounter a group of thugs, who will ask for various favours from the player as the toll for passing through. The player can cross the canal unbothered after 9PM as the thugs are all asleep. Once the bridge is unlocked, it can be used as a safer path to the flats.

The level of danger (and cost) is a combination of chance and the thugs' "impatience" level.

  • Toll ranging from £10-50.
    • The thugs will let the player go if the player say they don't have enough money to pay (+ + Impatience).
  • Search for contraband, which is an excuse to grope the player.
  • Have player flash them.
  • Require player to cross in their underwear.
  • Inspect the player's mouth for contraband by kissing the player.
    • If NPCs are set to be able to strangle the player and at high impatience, the thug will tighten their grip on the player's neck while kissing. Shoving the thug away has no consequences. Enduring has a 50% chance of the player passing out and sent to an auction.
  • Inspect the player's mouth for contraband by having the player give oral.

The player can attempt to run past the thugs (+ + + Impatience), but it has a high Athletics check. If it's raining or snowing, not even an S in Athletics guarantees success. Failure to run can result in a six person non-consensual encounter if impatience is over 50.
