The Vestibule

[Perobler's Orlogs, The Vestibule]
A small vestibule lit by ornate bronze lamps occupies the space between an ascending flight of stairs and the street door. All the furnishings, from the polished lamps to the soft carpet underfoot, set a tone of quiet (and expensive) good taste.
Obvious exits: none.


The Lobby

[Perobler's Orlogs, The Lobby]
At a large landing at the top of the stairs, several gleaming oak chairs face each other across a dark blue carpet with deep pile. In the far wall, paneled double doors stand open, in limed oak matching the chairs. To the right of the doors is a window with a dark blue drape, and to the left is a smaller door that says "Repairs."
Obvious exits: none.


The Showroom (Daytime-only)

[Perobler's Orlogs, The Showroom]
The light gleams off polished glass in the showroom of Bergen Perobler, Elanthia's foremost chronometrician, where the wares of this inventive and artistic genius are displayed. The buzzes, hums, chirps, cuckoos, chimes, and ticks of his astonishing creations are a background to every conversation. A competent-looking guard by the exit doors keeps a wary eye on the customers and merchandise alike.
You also see a velvet-lined case, an archway under the words "Perobler's Orlogs for the Home" and a velvet-draped table with a few things on it.
Obvious exits: none.

For the Home (Daytime-only)

[Perobler's Orlogs, For the Home]
Deeply piled maroon carpets muffle each footfall in a room lit with candles in cut glass globes. A few carved and polished timepieces are placed artistically about the room, and a liveried clerk stands ready to answer questions about the furniture.
You also see a handsome sign and an archway.
Obvious exits: none.


A handsome sign reads:

Now you can own Perobler's Grandfather Orlog, a free-standing
orlog for the most gracious home.  Made from choicest wood by
master craftsmen, it not only tells the hour with all the ac-
curacy the orlog is famed for, it also precisely displays the
progress of Elanthia's moons through the heavens.  The unit's
mechanism is powered by weights so you need no key to keep it
running. And with the room inside its cabinet, you won't need
that old closet or trunk in your home!

The Repair Closet (Daytime-only)

[Perobler's Orlogs, The Repair Closet]
This tiny, almost bare room -- the workroom of Knobby Snaggle, Perobler's repairdwarf -- has only a small counter with a high stool behind it. What light there is comes from a small window in the rear wall, on which hang a handsome sign and a framed certificate.
You also see Knobby and a small door.
Obvious exits: none.


The sign reads:
