Aeterna Wiki

The House of Hades is located in the deepest depths of the underworld. It is the personal estate of Lord Hades, who resides here with his family and staff. The floor plan of the House was designed by Daedalus. Shades are often seen milling about complaining about their lives and deaths, or forming part of the procession Hades tends to as part of his duties.
