[Scholars' Museum, Gallery]
The glow of gaethzen lamps blocks all view of the night outside, giving the gallery the air of a well-lit stage awaiting the opening curtain. High arched windows reflect the interior like black mirrors, creating a double image which reinforces the sense of unreality. In the soft light, images in the tapestries and paintings lining the walls flicker, and dim shadows cluster about the display cases and pedestals. You also see a formal portrait of a regal Gor'Tog, a massive fresco centered along the long wall with a small gold plaque on it, a panelled coral-and-bone filigree room divider, and a carved mahogany archway.
Obvious exits: none.
On the pedestal you see a delicate silver and amethyst crown and a small gold plaque that reads, "Diadem of Ferdahl Diaesele".
