[Hotagi'rath Theater, Lobby]
Tall, fluted columns are spaced along each wall, framing carved niches hung with copper lanterns that keep the lobby brightly lit at all hours. Breaking up the long expanse of pale stone, an artfully draped crimson curtain adds a dramatic background to the small refreshment stand, which tempts theater-goers during intermission with an aroma of ale and hot popped corn. Greeting patrons as they enter the building, a decorative marquee hangs near the door waiting to announce the next performance.
[Hotagi'rath Theater, Rehearsal Hall]
Heavily quilted pads strategically blanket each wall, aiding the area's overall acoustics and muting from the rest of the theater any disruptive off-key notes created by practicing musicians. Donated by the Rathan High Council of Nine to encourage fledgling talents, a walnut harpsichord facing a padded bench, an ebonwood cello leaning against a straight-backed chair and some tall island drums hiding a bamboo stool are situated in front of shelves stacked with replacement tools needed to play them. You also see a curtained arch.

[Hotagi'rath Theater, Golden Lyre Club]
Welcoming citizens as they enter the club is a mahogany bar, stocked with a variety of complimentary libations to encourage a social mood. Thick, crimson carpets and heavy draperies help silence noise from the bustling city outside, their colors enhanced by the dim lighting emanating from a black iron chandelier hung from the paneled ceiling. Grouped around low, circular tables to invite conversation, overstuffed leather armchairs are placed to take advantage of the warmth a limestone fireplace provides. You also see some carpeted stairs.
Note: The Golden Lyre club is generally open only to Rathan citizens, with exceptions sometimes made for special occasions.
[Golden Lyre Club, Balcony Dining]
The balcony's scalloped rim juts out over the performance hall, giving diners a bird's-eye view of the stage. Positioned so that no view is hampered, a row of curved booths is generously padded in an attempt to add comfort during the lengthiest of concerts. Vents, cleverly hidden by decorative sago palms, allow a cool, refreshing breeze to circulate through the spacious room, carrying the aroma of the dishes laid out for the enjoyment of citizens down to the first floor. You also see some furnished booths and an abundant buffet with some stuff on it.
