Rudolph's years-long waiting has proved worth it: the Solo clan is waking!
They say, somebody saw the gates opening - but who or what came out of there? Rudolph himself remains tantalizingly silent.
Historians and archeologists hurry to investigate archives and finds discovered in Arcon, seek to learn what will citizens of Elenia encounter when the Mansion's doors sweep open. Various institutions send their investigators to watch every movement at the entrance, to look for any hints and any tips.
And they have already succeeded to find out a thing or two!
The manor itself is much more vast inside than looks from outside. The Arcon-side entrance takes you to the magnificent mansion, property of the Solo clan long before the last lord got carried away with dark rituals.
The long spacious corridor starting right benind the doors descends below ground and goes up to the mansion itself. This corridor hosted many celebrations in the past - if the weather was too bad for open-air festivities; long ago, with neighbourhoods not tainted yet by Morra's malice and lords and ladies Solo caring about their subjects. Once upon a time the mansion was inhabited by the big family and thousands of people worked there; now the first floor is roamed by half-wild irexes, undead remains of ill-fated adventurers and stupefied servants who were kidnapped and turned long before. The clan does not need living ones for now, except as food supplies.
The mansion exit opens into famous Solo garden. A walk along this place may soothe one's heart even now, but lovely arbors have fallen into decay, bridges became decrepit: Morra's minions are not fond of the beauty contemplation. Breeding grounds adjoin the garden: the Solo manor had been famous, beside rare plants breeding, its riding irexes, best in Elenia. Now the legendary trainer breeds man-eating irexes for the Solo hunt, always ready to gobble an intruder. Still the local people don't mind: in fact they have never left theirs own home, just moved to the more comfortable place. More dark, more cold…
Walking through the garden one can reach the private cemetery of the Solo clan and descend to their family vault. The vault, alike to the mansion in whole, had been constructed with many generations in mind: sufficiently vast to house all the clan. Just wondering: do lords and ladies Solo sleep in coffins, or they have rebuilt the vault in some way? Nobody knows for now. No living soul have succeeded to leave the vault for now, to tell us the truth.
Both the Secret Office and Inquisition need volunteers, heroes who will be able to disclose the Solo Mansion's secrets and mysteries. Besides, long-year knowledge accumulated by the Solo clan will excite Varlone traders and scientists for sure.
