-The [servants'​] stairs led up to a second floor, and beyond that to a third, probably just an attic for storage. Halaren opened the second floor door and found himself in a concealed alcove, wide enough to carry a serving tray, but still invisible from the rest of the hall due to a hanging tapestry. He emerged into a hall, where a long, brightly colored rug ran the length of the floor, and carved, gilded sconces lined the walls, just a few feet apart. Between the sconces were small paintings, and maps of the baronies around Huerten, and one map of the entire kingdom which was outdated enough that it did not include Ostmark. Twenty feet away, the hall turned and continued out of sight. At the turn, which had been constructed to appear round rather than square, was an expensive glass window, one central pane almost clear, and the rest stained in browns and greens, to form an impression of the Sign of Morenth. The snake heads popped out of the window as delicately crafted glass sculptures. Halaren guessed that the window alone was worth more than most homes in Maelbourg. Doors were spaced along the hall. In front of the last door before the curve, a man stood at attention, wearing the distinctive outfit and ribbon of Ulan’s closest bodyguards and courtiers.{{zioth>​t,​157}} That room is occuppied by Leera ([[zioth:​pc:​korisca|Korisca]]).+The [servants'​] stairs led up to a second floor, and beyond that to a third, probably just an attic for storage.

-A large, semi-transparent glass window – or large for Maelbourg, anyway; ​[[zioth:​pc:​halaren|Halaren]] had heard that in the king's city of [[zioth:​place:​duerstadt|Duerstadt]], glass was more common than wood – let enough light into the room that it was probably brighter inside than out in the afternoon. To either side of the impressive thing, at some distance, were more traditional shuttered windows, and as luck would have it, one was open.{{zioth>​t,​157}}+A large, semi-transparent glass window – or large for Maelbourg, anyway; Halaren had heard that in the king's city of Duerstadt, glass was more common than wood – let enough light into the room that it was probably brighter inside than out in the afternoon.
