The Homestead Motel was an average seaside motel with 72 channels on the TVs and free air conditioning. This motel once offered rooms at affordable prices in order to accommodate tourists visiting Point Lookout. One of the rooms, 1D, was the safehouse of Dr. Jiang, a Chinese agent pretending to defect to the US.
By 2277, it is uninhabited apart from three vicious dogs occupying the parking lot, and only three motel rooms and the office are accessible.
The exterior of the motel complex is a square with the entrances to rooms on both sides of the building, only 4 rooms are enterable as the other rooms are boarded up. The exterior may have 2-3 vicious dogs and maybe another small creature in the immediate area. The dogs often patrol the dirt square inside the motel grounds.
Homestead Motel officeEdit
This section is on the outer southside of the motel grounds. The motel has a backroom, an area behind the counter, as well as a unisex bathroom to the right upon entering the door. There are no beds in this room. The keys to the other rooms can be found here.
This section is the safehouse of Dr. Jiang and contains a bed as well as Dr. Jiang's safehouse terminal (to the left of the bed), with a message. Upon reading it, the quest The Velvet Curtain will begin. On the bed is a skeleton, which is assumed to be Dr. Jiang.
This room is located in the inner northside of the motel grounds and is to the right of Room 1D. It is a relatively ordinary room in the motel with no distinguishing physical features. It contains a bed.
A place of ritual sacrifice. This room is located on the outer northside of the motel grounds, and appears to have been part of some very bloody, and judging by the steam in the room, very hot ritual. There are crucified corpses in the room, as well as several skeletons, laid out in a way reminiscent of the many bony totems dotted around swampfolk territory. There is a Pint-Sized Slasher mask in the bathtub in the bathroom.
