“The tiles of the white marble floors are spotless, but the deep grooves between them are filled with blood that sticks to your boots and leaves rusty prints behind you. The fluid flows steadily from an ornate marble basin, ornamented with writing female forms.

The first section contains shine-rooms, reliquaries, meditation chambers, vivisection tables, and basins filled with vital fluids kept liquid by dark and subtle magic. Secret corridors link the disparate sections and allow the priestesses of Caela Lormeth to move freely.
Finally, an ornate adamantium portcullis protects the Inner Reclusiam from invaders, but it can be bypassed by the vampiric inner circle.
