House Areas Open to the Public

[House of the Silver Star, Atop the Willow Tree]
High in the willow's branches is a smooth wooden platform with an unobstructed view of the nighttime sky. Towards the northwest, the massive black marble building which is home to the House of the Silver Star stands proudly, little visible through its drawn curtains. A downward glance reveals the city of Shard, illuminated with thousands of lights cut through by the pools of darkness where the rivers lie. You also see a massive trunk, a plaid waxed cotton blanket spread out on the platform and a small basket hung on a nearby branch.
Obvious exits: none.

[House of the Silver Star, Sitting Room]
Gazing down from the walls are portraits of prominent House members past, the glow from the large fireplace reflected on their gilded frames. Rich red curtains are open to reveal a view of the manicured grounds outside, and plush black velvet furniture is clustered atop a jewel-toned raw silk woven rug. You also see a long black velvet couch, an overstuffed black velvet armchair and a lacquered tea table with a couple of things on it.
Obvious exits: east.

[House of the Silver Star, Gardens]
White beeswax candles flicker with pale light, encircling a glassy obsidian fountain. The natural flow and warp of the stone cause odd reflections in the water before it spills into the basin below. Ringing the crushed marble gravel surrounding the fountain is an abundant moon garden that fills the air with a strong, sweet fragrance. A window of the building is barely visible in the darkness.
Obvious paths: south.


House Areas Open to House Members Only

[House of the Silver Star, Feasterie]
A stately piano sits at the ready near one of the the rich red brocade curtains, an elaborate golden candelabra atop it. An enormous silk-draped table piled high with food and drink takes up most of the space in this room, a dark ferishanloa chair at each silver-edged place setting. Underfoot is a heavy rug of indigo silk, silver-dipped threads running through it to sparkle in the candlelight.
Obvious exits: east.

[House of the Silver Star, Rooftop]
Thick stone blocks form the roof of the House atop which a gleaming silver telescope rises like a spire. Numerous runes are carved into it, though many are scratched and damaged beyond recognition. A hefty brushed steel kettle of hot cocoa dangles above a wide granite firepit within quick reach, ready to warm even the coldest late-night stargazer. You also see a heavy door.
Obvious exits: none.
