House Areas Open to the Public
[House of the Rowan Branch, Inner Foyer]
Tanned from dark leather, a large mat lines the center of the floor, following the shape of the walls. In the corner is a small square table, a tall glass pitcher of ice water set upon it. A single paper lantern hangs from the ceiling, illuminating the way. Clean walls of rice paper line beams of rowan, the hallway ending at a paper screen.
Obvious exits: west.
House Areas Open to House Members Only
[House of the Rowan Branch, Hall of Silence]
Prayer mats of braided grass are spread out on the floor in front of a simple altar, meant to be used for quiet reflection. Nearby, a single low table is set out with some tea and seaweed-wrapped sainyuso rolls, inviting worshippers to partake. A small, perfectly trimmed tree stands in the northwest corner of the room, set into a rectangular pot. You also see a paper screen.
Obvious exits: east.
