Lord Peter Alner, owner and builder of Alner Mansion decreed in his last will that upon his death, which occurred in the Great Fire of 1912, his very large collection of exotic pornography from all ages and corners of the world be donated to the Fluck Library.
Lord Peter was an avid collector of many exotic artifacts, but sadly, most of his collections were sold after his death to relieve the considerable debts of his primary heir, his nephew Arthur Roachwood. It would later be repurchased by Frederick Alner, and inherited by his son Damien, but would be abandoned for the last time after Damien's death. When the mansion was abandoned it fell into disrepair, and most of the remaining artifacts went missing over the years, in the hands of burglars and of children entering the mansion on a dare.
Strange rumors abound about the cause for Lord Peter's death, and later it was said that an unpleasant mood hung about the mansion. Whether there is any substance to this or not can only be answered by the survivors attempting to stay alive inside.
Starting in Spring of 2013, a new group, the Alner Household began operating in Roachtown from the Alner Mansion.
