Ali Baba’s Shisha Oasis (Meeting Place)
(Owner Jamal Al Hajjar, second circle Initiate mage)
Ali Baba’s is just one of several Shisha lounges scattered over Seattle (Or wherever else you want to locate it). It’s larger then most, and its smoky environment makes an excellent place to meet contacts, or Johnson’s. There are several rooms upstairs for private parties, or clandestine gatherings, including one with just a table and chairs for more businesslike gatherings (Jamal the owner runs high stakes poker here several nights a month). The second floor is also host to Jamal's Large apartment, and his study. The deck sports several large bushes and plants, as well as a lurking earth elemental to put off trespassers. Jamal has a thing for aquariums and so there are several scattered throughout the lounge. Jamal also has a larger ritual space in the basement, which he will make available to others, for a price.
(A Shisha Lounge is a place where people gather to smoke Hookah’s, do a search for either on Google for a better explanation and pictures)

Its a freeware program called DungeonCrafter, most of what I used here and In the Gun emporium are custom tiles that you can dowload off of other sites and add yourself. Unfortunatly the site is no longer up, but since its freeware I might be able to zip it up small enough to mail. the basic set contains a while tile sety grey tile set out door village set, and classic black and white dungeon tiles. I also have about thirty or so custum tile sets I've gotten from various parts of the net, I primarily use only ten though. Its mostly fantasy based so its a little tricky to use for other stuff. But tiles are easy to make, and the maps can be opened as bitmap files in any art program. the shop here and the gun emporium represent less then an hour of work, including modifications, and multiple changes to the layouts, its very very easy to use.
