House of the Rising Phoenix - Documents

Meeting Minutes – 6/8/1999

Lumnea, June, Day 8, in the Year 5099

[House Phoenix, Library]
The library of the House is a largish room, with the walls completely hidden by bookcases. A wide selection of reading material can be seen from a cursory glance at the shelves. Treatises on science and history stand next to ancient volumes on forest lore and magic. One rather extensive section seems devoted to arms and armor and the many subjects dealing with the arts of war. Locked glass-fronted cabinets hold rare tomes and fragile scrolls and even the odd clay tablet. You also see a spiral staircase, a carved red sandstone pedestal with an ancient volume on it, a trash barrel and a plain wooden table with a gold-trimmed modwir plaque on it.
Also in the room: (Lady Evialla who is scribing), Tilone, Graffy, Lord Parfyon, Seldom, Lord Eahlstan, Lord Shidain, Coldmist, Marekhi, Namarie, Haephestus, Sephirosu, Apprentice Sydarix, Journeyman Theoderick, Germinal, Journeyman Torthos, Lady Hyssopp, Lord Tegaron and Lord Waldo2, who are all seated.
Obvious exits: north.

Germinal bows to Hyssopp.

Sydarix says, "ah say we send em some tainted grog"

Waldo2 says, "we need to be prepared but they sneak in where they can"

Waldo2 says, "oops i must attend to the initiates outside"
