[The Great Tower, Antechamber]
Large cushions of plush, deep purple pile in the corners of this small room, ready to provide seating should the wait for admittance to the Ferdahl's inner chambers be a long one. Twin gaethzen orbs frame both entrances, the pale, steady light lending a feeling of warmth to the red-violet walls that enclose the chamber. A small indigo rug sits to the side of the door, hosting an array of soft slippers.
You also see a small plaque, a door leading back to the stairwell and a curtained arch.
Obvious exits: none

note: This area is not always available, it is on the 3rd floor as part of the Formal Meeting Room & Ferdahl's Residence.

[The Great Tower, Hall of Feasts]
High, curving walls arch upward in the muted light, meeting to form the domed ceiling of this great chamber. At the apex stretches a chandelier so skillfully spun from gaethzen and glass that it resembles a spider's web, dew-coated and cradling the stars. Thin marble pillars, also studded with gaethzen, form a wide circle, and between them rest long tables rimmed by benches. You also see a long ebonwood table with several things on it and a silver arch.
Obvious exits: north, south.

[The Great Tower, Narrow Hall]
A miniature potted cherry tree flourishes here despite the lack of natural light, coating the walnut floor surrounding it with a snowfall of delicate pink blossoms. Across from it opens an ash archway, its surface carved with a flowered vine motif to match the standing lamps that curve out of sight with the rest of the hall.
Obvious exits: northeast, southeast.
