Trouble Brewing

[Trouble Brewing - 28413]
Beeswax candles drip from ornate iron sconces, the glow of the tiny, flickering flames nearly absorbed by the surrounding black stone walls and floor. An enormous cauldron fills a walk-in fireplace, the sickly green, bubbling brew within giving off a noxious odor. A wooden rack and a spindly oak table flank a curtained opening in the curved wall.

Workroom

[Trouble Brewing, Workroom - 28414]
A black raven perches on the sill of a small window set high in the curved wall, its eye turned toward a curtained opening in the black stone. A single lantern glows atop a long worktable crowded with alchemical equipment, which is covered in dust and cobwebs. The faint odor of sulphur and burnt hair lingers in this small space.
