The House of Scarlet Hooks was a temple of Loviatar, the Maiden of Pain, in the city of Calaunt in the Vast in the mid–14th century DR.[2][1][3]


By 1358 DR and through to 1370 DR and later, the temple was managed by Whipmistress Shaleen "Talonkiss" Oomreen. She led twenty-four priests and priestesses, as well as 114 lay worshipers.[2][1][3] Among the priests were two Pains.[2] All were particularly eager to spread the so-called "holy pain".[3]


The House of Scarlet Hooks was one of two temples that dominated daily Calauntan life. It was an impressive building. The double-spired House of Scarlet Hooks was one of the few notable landmarks in the city, as were the muffled screams.[2]
