[Builder's Warehouse, Interior]
An entry area to the warehouse lies just inside the door. As the space stretches away from the docks, rice paper screens partition it into private sections that shopkeepers rent to display their wares. Fluttering overhead, a paper mobile hangs out of reach and dances wildly in the breeze each time the door opens and closes. You also see an open ricepaper screen, an archway, an exit door and a low bench.
Obvious exits: east.


[Smoque's Screens]
Translucent ricepaper screens in neutral and pastel colors are on display along the walls of the shop. A sliding arrangement near the door allows the purchaser to judge the colors in the light when selecting furnishings for their home. You also see Smoque and an elegant ricepaper notice.
Obvious exits: east, out.


An elegant ricepaper notice reads:
Milords and ladies, please note that my wares are walls.  When installed by my craftsmen, 
they will replace any wall you currently have in your home.

[Where There's Smoque, There's Fyere!]
Fires burn in small braziers and stoves, each carefully screened to protect the ricepaper screens which form the walls of the shop. Designed to sit upon the floor, the low braziers provide a surprising amount of warmth for their size. You also see Fyere.
Obvious exits: west.

[Thymes' Tables]
The fragrance of freshly carved sandalwood doesn't quite mask the sharper smells of the lacquer used to provide the glossy finish so popular on the island. An assortment of tables and desks are on display, providing the homeowner with a good selection of both traditional and modern styles. From the abstract shesegri design of the meditation table to the more representative floral images on the rose and lotus tables, the shop bespeaks fine craftsmanship and careful attention to detail. You also see Ynez Thymes.

[Builder's Warehouse, Sectioned Corridor]
The screens form a passageway to move deeper into the warehouse. A sisal runner covering the wood planked floor and the scent of burning sandalwood lends warmth and comfort to the practical space. The muted shouts of workers on the dock drift into the interior through partly-open windows high overhead. You also see a shifting silk-curtained arch and a soft blue ricepaper screen.
Obvious exits: east, west.


[The Lap of Luxury]
Pale gold ricepaper screens enclose the small shop. Within, piles of cushions in various fabrics and colors are scattered upon the floor. Traditionally, local homes use these cushions in place of the mainlander's chairs to offer a comfortable place for guests to sit or recline while eating dinner at low tables. You also see a clerk.

[Fenwycke's Floormats]
Samples of the local floormats -- woven reed or grass floor matting which conceal the floor of a home -- are on display along the walls of the shop. The shopkeeper, Fenwycke, plies his trade as he works, waiting for customers to make their decisions. You also see a distinctive reed-rimmed sign and Fenwycke.

[Builder's Warehouse, Sectioned Corridor]
Several open screens lead into various sections providing wares for the homeowner or builder. From somewhere in the farthest reaches comes the soft cry of an infant and his mother's singing coos to calm him as she works. You also see a gracefully curved arch and a wide doorway.
Obvious exits: west.


[Tredwynne's Bedding]
Translucent ricepaper screens line the walls of the shop, the austerity complementing the black stone columns as well as the neutral color of the woven reed floormat. Against the understated neutrality of the background decor, the sleeping mats on display around the shop provide bright splashes of color. You also see Tredwynne and the back room.

[A Room With A View]
Thin metal chains hang from the ceiling, supporting metal-framed frosted and stained glass windows. The windows are more decorative than functional, keeping insects out and allowing light to filter through the cut glass surfaces. You also see the glazier.
