Thoroar Silverkin is the personal scribe of the king. He is living in a beautiful three-story stone house inside the castle walls. The house is surrounded by an 8-foot high green hedgerow. Two arches carve openings in the hedge, one in front of the house and the other behind. Starting from arches, two paths of carved stones give access to the property.
A1. Main Arch
The front arch is made of a cold blue iron that irradiates magic. Any person who crosses the arch triggers a spell that sends a warning to Thoroar.
A2. Dining Room
The dining room can accommodate four guests to eat. A small cellar annex to the dining room contains some very good bottles of wine. Among the thirty or so bottles, three bottles of elven wine twenty years old are visible.
The kitchen can cook for a household.
Several weeks of food are stored in the storage.
A5. Rest Area
Somewhat away from the house is a peaceful resting place. Some rare flowers perfume the air. This is where Thoroar just relaxes and wanders in his thoughts. The smell of flowers gives a +2 bonus to knowledge while sitting in the area.
A6. Back Arch
The arch behind is also made of a cold blue iron that irradiates magic. Any person who crosses the arch triggers a spell that sends a warning to Thoroar.
The boudoir has a comfortable reading chair.
The bath is located near the chimney. Heat from the fireplace heats the room providing an ideal place to take steam baths.
The office contains a working table and a shelf.
B4. Tower Entrance
The room is the main entrance to the tower section of the house.
The bedroom contains a bed, a cedar chest, a shelf and a desk.The bed is located close to the fireplace to enjoy the heat from it.
The shelf contains several kinds of inks and several types of waxes. The shelf also contains several types of feather for writing, each with a specific function in the writing of letters and official documents.
The desk is beautiful; it is made of solid wood and is richly decorated. On the desk are letters on which the scribe is working. On the desk is also a seal used to seal letters.
The clothes of the scribe are folded carefully and stored in the cedar chest. The scribe has normal clothes, but also richly decorated clothes. The chest has a false bottom (Search DC 15) that hides 200 gold pieces.
The library contains several books on various subjects including calligraphy and magic. The calligraphy books teach several types of cursive.
