[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Antechamber]
Lavish furs and exotic furnishings adorn the hall, carefully arranged beneath the rows of colorful banners hung from the broad ceiling beams. Two curving stairways, lined with luminous red crystal balls, trail up the eastern and western walls to lead towards the stands that overlook the arena floor. Several gaudily dressed merchants haggle over a yellowed schedule, their loud banter about which of their champions will progress further in the gauntlet carrying over the muted chatter of the other guests. You also see a massive gate.
Obvious exits: north.


[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Amphitheater]
Countless levels of seating slants upward along the curved stadium walls, giving ample room to house the population of a small town with plenty of room to spare. Hung from curved wooden beams that encircle the stands below, a patchwork leather tarp practically guards the spectators from the unpredictable and unforgiving elements. Gaudily dressed vendors meander slowly amongst the crowd, aggressively hawking their wares to adult and child alike. You also see a brightly painted sign with flowing lettering.
Obvious paths: northeast, out.


A sign reads:

[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Amphitheater]
The sharp sounds of the battles' blows carry upward to the stands from the arena pit below, causing several mothers to hide the eyes of their children. With every shattering blow, the crowd reacts with fanfare and disgust as they cheer their champions onward to victory. Several guards stand watch over the railing that separates the fighting pit from the crowd, occasionally using their elaborate halberds to coax a blood-thirsty beast away from inner wall. You also see a brightly painted sign with flowing lettering.
Obvious paths: east, southwest.

[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Refreshment Stand]
A sturdy polished oak stand with a colorfully painted sign takes up a considerable portion of the stands. Its dimly lit interior has been lined with a fine selection of food and spirits gathered from all over Elanthia. Behind the notched countertop of the stand, several beer maidens pass overflowing glasses of ale to the thirsty spectators looking to quench their thirst. The air is filled with the hisses and hurrahs of the crowd, building to a roaring crescendo with the final blow of each fight. You also see a small notice near the keg rack, a brightly painted sign with flowing lettering, a keg rack with some stuff on it, and a polished oak stand with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: southeast, west.

[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Amphitheater]]
A constant flood of spectators flows up and down a twisting stairway that spirals downward to spill out into the entrance hall of the arena. A sea of colorful robes and cloaks worn by the gathered crowd gives the stands the look of a rainbow-colored sea of bustling people. A few darkly clad figures weave amongst the crowd, taking side bets on the combatants' chances in the pit, careful to stay inconspicuous under the watchful eye of the patrolling guards. You also see a rotten egg, a yellow origami hat, an azure origami hat, a lead pipe, a crimson origami hat, and a brightly painted sign with flowing lettering.
Obvious paths: northwest, out.

[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Entrance To The Pit]
Hordes of people fill the cramped hall as muscular combatants mingle amongst the spectators, awaiting their chance at the pit. A smooth ebonwood desk piled with stacks of parchment, scrolls, and inkbottles rests before the gated entrance to the pit, manned by an Elothean woman wearing a pair of dainty silver-rimmed spectacles. Behind the desk a small army of heavily armored guards flank the gated entrance to the fighting pit, keeping watch for any vicious beasts attempting to escape the arena. You also see a large sign with bold red lettering, Eilynis, and a registration list.
Obvious exits: east, south, west.


[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Hall of Champions]
Glass cases line the walls of the passage, their golden shelves loaded with the equipment of the long lost champions of the past. Several large iron-wrought lanterns dangle from the thick beams that reinforce the ceiling, casting a shifting yellow candle light across the surface of the thick red carpet that lines the hallway. Gentle curls of silver smoke waft from several incense burners hidden amongst the foliage arranged about the area, filling the air with the strong smell of lilac. You also see a massive iron door.
Obvious exits: east.


[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Recovery Room]
The room is a flurry of activity as the battered bodies of the fighters are unceremoniously hauled into the room and heaved onto the nearest available cot. Groups of weary attendants quickly shuffle between the wounded gladiators, their formerly white robes drenched in the deep crimson of fresh blood. Curiously shaped bottles filled with various different colored liquids line the inside of a cabinet inset into the eastern wall, the truth of their contents lost with the writing on their yellowed labels. You also see a double-laminate hickory longbow with a string of exotic feathers dangling from the grip, a basilisk head arrow, a huge sign with bold red lettering, and a massive iron door.
Obvious exits: none.


[Gazryan's Gauntlet, Souvenir Shoppe]
Rich red silk has been draped between the rafters that support the roof to the structure, creating a faux ceiling that encloses the shop. Groups of happy consumers peruse the wares placed on display for those looking to purchase something in remembrance of their time spent at the arena. Scantily clad Elothean women dressed in black leather sweep gracefully from table to table, assisting the customers with any questions they might have. You also see a polished oak table with a red silk runner with some stuff on it, a polished oak rack with some stuff on it, some polished oak hooks with some stuff on it, and a polished oak pedestal with some miniature Gorbesh battle spheres on it.
Obvious exits: west.
