About Black Thorn / Sacred Muse / Inner Sanctum

Inner Sanctum is coming

We can build it with your help.

Are you ready for another well equipped, beautiful Bay Area community dungeon? Of course you are! Buckle your seat belt, because beneath the floors of Black Thorn, Inner Sanctum is coming!

A new basement dungeon, bigger than Black Thorn, with 9.6ft ceilings, and 1,500 sqft of open, usable space, Inner Sanctum will offer more room for bigger classes and bigger community play events. Build it with us! We can do it with your help.

How exciting it will be to create a beautiful, new dungeon together! You know we can do it, because we already have. From The Looking Glass to Black Thorn to Sacred Muse, to The Attic, and now Inner Sanctum, we have and we will.

Why are we building Inner Sanctum?

Community play spaces are important.

Community play spaces are important resources. They provide a safe space for community building, a place to express ourselves in a non-judgmental, supportive environment, a place to make deep connections and break out of restrictive, social constructs.

Community play spaces allow us to be creative, to be scary, to confront our fear and find empowerment, a place to learn from one another, celebrate diversity, and find common ground.

Community play spaces are where we can play and in doing so experience personal growth, empathy, boundary setting, and communication skills that enrich our lives and benefit the lives of others.

How can you help?

Thank you.

In general, any ongoing patronage will benefit our community members by investing in all the dungeons with improvements, maintenance, toys, implements, equipment, repairs, and supplies Managing three popular dungeons takes time, energy, resources, and a lot of Love!

Specific to the Inner Sanctum creation project, our goal is to raise $100,000 within one year. This is about how long we expect the building process to take. Construction workers are scheduled to arrive on the property and begin work on Monday, March 16th!

Updates will be posted here regularly as each milestone in the construction process is reached and new tiers of financial support are met.

Once our monthly patronage reaches $2,500 a month, all patrons who are backing this project with at least $100 dollars a month will receive a 1-hour dungeon rental gift certificate in a dungeon of your choice!

What is the challenge?

Together we got this.

As we all know, building in the Bay Area is expensive, really expensive. Inner Sanctum will feature floor to ceiling concrete for sound insulation, sound glass windows for natural lighting, new plumbing, new electrical, sprinkler system, HVAC system, padded flooring, new play equipment, furnishings, and so much more! A loan will cover some of the construction cost but not all. Raising the money we need to complete this project is crucial. With your help, we can make it happen.

A history of success

The Sacred Muse building project was a great success.

Several years ago I was faced with a decision, to either demolish the dilapidated, old carriage barn behind Black Thorn, or repair and rebuild it. You know what happened next. Now, Sacred Muse and The Attic are gorgeous, well-equipped play spaces that people have been enjoying ever since. A big Thank You again to those whose contribution helped to build those community dungeons. We did it!

Goals
60% complete
When we reach $500 a month, we'll use that money to, once a month, buy a new implement, toy, set of cuffs, or some other delightfully devious device for Inner Sanctum.
