To do: Document all the game's Museums:
- River's Rest Museum: needs room descriptions added
- Museum Alerreth: waiting on renovations before fleshing out the rest of the wiki. Already has a new fashion wing, but will also have fine art and archaelogical artifacts in the future
- Girvahk's Shop Museum needs formatting
- Stormbrow Gallery: needs everything
- Wehnimer's Museum: needs everything
- Consider adding The Northern Fury's museum, below:
[Northern Fortress, Museum - 18915] Filled with shelves of old books and diagrams of historical battles, this hall smells of dust and old parchment. Illuminated by three narrow windows set side-by-side into one wall are several tapestries and frescoes that liven up the otherwise bare stone walls. Providing a means of rest and relaxation, comfortable couches sit back-to-back on the varnished, oak-planked floor. A polished brass plaque has been affixed to the wall. Obvious exits: west >look book Several books of note stand out amid the dusty collection. The first is a work penned in an elegant script entitled, "Knighthood of Koar: The Mandate for Justice Through Strength." Also begging for inspection is a scholarly volume entitled, "The Effect of Sunfist Tactics on Today's Battlefield," and easily noticed on the shelf is a well-read, cerulean star-embossed manual entitled, "Northern Fury Training Manual." >look diagram The first diagram is inked with a detailed grid map carefully marked with lines and figures. The second image is that of a map of Wehnimer's Landing, penned with a handwritten plan of action detailing a shield-wall formation designed to protect a small melee force. The diagram, when viewed as a whole, depicts a plan for the siege of Thurfel's Keep. Scrawled into the margins are warnings and strong words correlating high casualties and the importance of working as a team. >look tapestries A series of scenes show a giantman chieftain leading an attack upon a dwarven formation, though the battle appears to be a stalemate. Next, the chieftain and a dwarven hero are depicted sharing a handshake upon the field of battle. They are wounded, but stand tall as they revere one another, showing respect. Above them, the image of Koar watches them with a hopeful smile on his face. The scene after shows a young giantman receiving a weathered book and an ancient rolaren morning star from an old dwarf. There appears to be something written on it. >read tapestries In the Common language, it reads: Thorgig's heir is called forth to defend the Realms. > >look frescoes A host of adventurers, in full battle regalia, rally around the banner of the Northern Fury as they drive back a horde of enemies. Following this scene, representatives of the Northern Fury stand before the seat of a nobleman. Offering a heraldic shield bearing the Northern Fury emblem, the nobleman pays homage, standing in honor of the heroes. There appears to be something written on it. >read frescoes In the Common language, it reads: Earl Jovery recognizes the sovereignty of the Northern Fury and bestows the noble title of Knight-Banneret upon Valicar. >look plaque This plaque has been polished to a high sheen and is hung from the wall with bright brass hooks. There appears to be something written on it. >read plaque In the Common language, it reads: This room is dedicated to showing some of the chain of events that led to the founding of the Northern Fury, as well as events that have shaped its success.
