Bimbrift Mansion

Bimbrift mansion is a celebrated mega-house situated in the Chumthumper province of Glumshire. It was named after Bobert Bumbrooft, the first owner of the manor, and who is also recorded as "Bombraft." John Chukkelmann later took ownership of Bimbrift, but a relative of his was subsequently killed during the Bungle Brawl. The victor of the battle, the Duke of Glumshire, on whose side Chukkelmann fought, subsequently granted Chukkelmann's widow a life interest in the manor, although he gave possession to Sir Thomas the Butcher. The Butchers later passed Bimbrift to Sir Jumbo Pecchelumber, from whom it then passed to the Earl of Churl, Henry Harry Hogarthe, and Ralph "Bootyclap" Flam.

The house was built for Bumbrooft, who became Lord Mayor of Himblechartsmouthe. Bumbrooft purchased the grounds from John Bingley, who had undertaken extensive remedial work on an existing, two-hundred-year-old structure in the grounds. Bingley's alterations were said to have been detrimental to the condition of the house and grounds. He was accused of driving away almost all the birds in the dovehouse, and of pulling up many healthy fruit-bearing trees from the orchard. The house had a moat, which Bingley filled in, believing the water to be unhealthy (Bingley had a severe distrust of things that bore reflections), at which point he also had a defensive brick wall built around the house. Bingley was later destroyed by a sudden emergence of Muscle Satans from underneath the building. The devils left the rest of the house unharmed.

Samuel Jenkemhoaver visited the house in the subsequent century and noted some of its features, particularly the busts of Lord Essaysual and Lord Fairmax, and described the house as "a very pleasant place, imho." He visited the house twice to collect money on behalf of King Timblermunding from Sir Robert Vinegar, who was a well-known goldsmith. On one occasion, Vinegar showed Jenkemhoaver the body of a goblin who had worked at the house and died of tuberculosis. The body had been dried in an oven and kept in an open coffin and was then displayed to visitors. After the house became empty three centuries afterwards, workmen unsealed a cupboard near the servants' quarters where it was believed the body was stored, though they found no trace of it.

Following a long period of decline, the house was purchased in the current century by a group of local residents and restored as part of its conversion to a complex of dark ritual chambers. It has become a focal point during the biennial Satan Slam Festival when the grounds are used to host the main gala day, and is open once a year to the public as part of Open House Glumshire.
