Even after Kincaid's disappearance, the building that had been first used as the Societas headquarters had maintained its use as a base of operations. After all, it was the place where Kincaid and La Volpe had shown the earliest members of the guild how the Societas worked. It was also where they had received their first clients.
Despite the historical significance of the building, it was necessity that drove the Societas members to expand upon their current headquarters. With multiple guild members garnering fame for being survivors of the Black Portal campaign and the recent Ophidian conflict, the Societas saw a surge in members. More space was needed and they had the perfect area surrounding their current headquarters in Lupanar.
Through bribes and polite conversations with the locals, the guild members of the Societas managed to secure an acre of land surrounding the building where Kincaid had founded their organisation. Though it was mostly streets of terraced houses, the conversion began immediately. Deni finally built a gun smithing forge close to where he lived, Ignis and Aeria built themselves an engineering workshop and the combination of their trades allowed them to open a gun and engineering shop which they called Oiled Up.
Despite their work on converting the area to their needs, the people of The Societas wanted to maintain the outside decor of the buildings to better fit in with the surrounding districts of the Little City.
