While some may consider Domus Exsulis to be a rather angsty abode with a lofty-sounding Latin name, it can be quite a cozy place. There is a kitchen full of goodies to be swiped when the Kitchen Witch is not paying attention. There is a library full of books with a Guardian who is not overly fussy about curious fingers leafing through her books. Why would she be? After all, the books will fly back to their shelves at any given notice and have been known to bite at fingers that are ungentle upon their pages. The books on this island, as you may notice, are quite adept at protecting themselves!
You may find games and other curiosities almost anywhere not just on the Domus but on the island of Yrejveree itself. But for now, we wonder if we might interest you in paying more attention to the Antechamber? We hear there are several mysteries afoot there.
Failing which, you may want to amble downwards towards the Garden’s Bottom, where the watermaidens love to linger.
Beyond the gardens, you may find the roads that lead to the great forests of this island. The Faerie Woods lie to the left, while the Forest of Dreams may be found on the path that meanders away to the right.
