Garden

[Cairnfang Manor, Garden] (DAY) Greenery around a charming manor provides a backdrop for the colorful array of flowers taking shelter under a grove of assorted fruit trees. Burbling brightly, a stone fountain is surrounded by three carved benches and a path of round, grey stones meanders up a small hill to the gazebo steps, then down to a stunningly azure lake. Occupying the ever-moving focal center of the garden, a muster of regal, vibrantly plumed peacocks struts amongst the verdure.

[Cairnfang Manor, Garden] (NIGHT) Bathed in soft moonlight, a large riverstone manor is surrounded by verdant greenery and a fragrant array of flowers and fruit trees. Moonbeams bounce off of a burbling stone fountain surrounded by three carved benches and a path of round grey stones meanders up a small hill to the gazebo steps, then down to a dark azure lake. Occupying the ever moving focal center of the garden, a muster of regal peacocks struts amongst the verdure, their colors eye-catching beneath the stars.

>l flowers Small bergamots and vivid green ferns huddle beneath the reaching branches of flowering orange, fragrant pear, reddish maoral, and sturdy oak trees. Amidst red and orange sirenflowers and yellow snapdragons, rhododendrons and foxgloves bloom, their sensual perfume drifting through the air. One distinctly different tree has been carefully cultivated to take root and flourish next to manor's large arching doorway. Its finely grained trunk extends up into raised branches, which grow tiny, red rowan berries.

>tap fountain You tap a multi-tiered stone fountain with crystal clear water cascading down its surface.

>l Carved with a simple, swirled pattern, each stone bench is wide enough to comfortably seat two. The lines of the benches are slightly curved, and the stone is smooth and slightly worn with age. Creeper vines and climbing roses spread out behind and up the edges of the benches.

>l Serving as a pleasant retreat for social gatherings or private, soothing reflection, a round marble gazebo stands proudly on the crest of a small hill across the lake. The smooth marble roof curves upwards into a simple, yet elegant, dome. Ivy-choked marble columns, set up in a circular colonnade, support the arched ceiling and effectively open the gazebo up to the surrounding garden.

>l Both stately and charming, the manor's architecture harmonizes with the beauty of the garden. Smooth grey and blued riverstone forms the outer walls and a steep roof, crafted entirely from dark, cut stone shingles, slopes up into elaborate gables. Under each gable, paired windows set with curved arches look out from the upper stories, contrasting with the oriel windows that grace the main floor. In front of a large arching doorway, a doormat is woven with the words, "Welcome to Cairnfang Manor".

Gazebo

[Cairnfang Manor, Gazebo] (DAY) Ivory marble inlaid with splinters of green and gold extend to the high dome roof, contributing to an uncluttered, open cathedral feel. Hanging from the rounded roof, a multitude of pots overflow with flowery growth, the tendrils draping down to mingle with the morning glory vines twining up the gazebo's supporting colonnade. Surrounded by verdant life and soft fragrance, several wicker chairs accommodate striking views of the entire garden and the lake below. You also see a muster of blue peacocks, a low wicker serving cart, and some carved marble steps.

You also see a muster of blue peacocks, a low wicker serving cart, and some carved marble steps.

>l garden The garden opens up in vivid colors that spread in all directions, just below the gazebo's higher vantage point on this small crested hill. Directly around the gazebo, tiny trumpet-shaped blooms of white and gold open up next to crystal white moonflowers and colored banks of wildflowers. A wide expanse of grass stretches further beyond, dipping down the hill towards the lake.

>l pond Through the branches of graceful weeping willows, wisteria, and azaleas, a large, smooth-surfaced pond spreads out in the midst of the surrounding garden.

>l peacocks Blending in with the beauty of the garden, a muster of peacocks struts back and forth in front of the gazebo like nobility on parade. The peafowl, puffing their blue chests, drag their magnificent emerald green train and gold tail feathers adorned with blue-green eyes along behind them. Walking amongst the males, several peahens hold their heads high to show off their feathered crowns.

>l cart A small wicker serving cart with pale jade handles Um... Food/drinks should be on this!!

POND

[Cairnfang Manor, Pond] (DAY) Rambling through the sunlit garden, a gray stone path comes to the pond's edge, which is bordered with lush azalea, nympheas, multi-hued wisteria, and bamboo trees. Soft colors line the deep blue water, as garden hues mesh on the reflective surface. Ensconced by purple and ivory water lilies, floating lily pads blanket the edges of the pond, and tiny green frogs lightly skip from one padded perch to another. A small dock bordered with weeping willows juts over one edge of the pond. You also see a gray stone path.

A small dock bordered with weeping willows juts over one edge of the pond. You also see a gray stone path.

>l lake Framed with water lilies and lotus, the pond's surface is marked by periodic swirls of water. Several fish, continuously moving, nip at the surface of the water in search of some tasty bug for food.

>l willows Majestic, despite their shorter trunks, several weeping willows with long, pendulous branches that droop airily to the ground, border the pondside adjacent to the dock. Their foliage is marked by distinctive lance shapes, and the undersides of their leaves glisten like silk. Arched across the dock and out over the mirrored surface of the water, the bend of the weeping willows' curvaceous forms seem to cry out with a sorrow that nearly overtakes their graceful beauty.

>l garden Exotic orchids and bleeding hearts, their scents intermingled with the strong aroma of nearby jasmine, are mixed with crimson nightshade in this far corner of the garden. Interspersed with the mossy grass and wildflowers reaching up the nearby hill to the domed gazebo, lilacs and foxgloves burst with color. Further beyond, a large riverstone manor peeks up over the distant oak, maoral, and fruit trees.

Layered petals of pink and white honeysuckle depict her blushing fair skin, while pale carnations mixed with golden aster petals form a heart pendant with a budding rose at the base of her throat. Black orchids and blue violets intertwine darkly in a halo of hair that is held back by a crown of anemone flowers above the curving tip of one ear. A scented parchment is affixed to the bottom edge.

An obsidian kraken sculpture

This obsidian sculpture is of an enormous kraken, its octopod tentacles coiling and uncoiling, its crab's pincers fending off anyone who comes near.

A man who strongly resembles the boy is plunging a javelin toward the kraken's octopus head and its one glaring ruby eye. A white ora plaque is fitted to the base of the sculpture.
