Torfeld Palace

A mirror image of Thistle Palace in the Dreaming, Torfeld Palace also has three main buildings—the central Palace Hall, the eastern Dolomite Hall, and the western Marble Hall. State business occurs in the central palace, while administrative duties occur in the west hall, and public events occur in the east.

  1. Dignitary Lawn.
  2. Marble Hall—Entrance. The palace guards—distinctive in their green uniforms—defend this entrance.
  3. Dolomite Hall—Entrance. Guards also watch this entrance, but in fewer numbers.
  4. Grand Lawn.
  5. North Colonnade. The primary entrance for guests and dignitaries.
  6. Entrance Foyer. The skeleton of a slain dragon tyrant from Ber hangs from the ceiling by wires.
  7. Guard Post.
  8. Drawing Room.
  9. State Dining Room.
  10. Antechamber.
  11. Diplomatic Reception.

  14. Balcony.
  15. Royal Gallery. Paintings of former kings.
  16. Principal Minister's Chamber. Harkover Lee has a few attendants, whom he dismisses twice a day to take his meals in private.
  17. Archdruid's Chamber. The archdruid is away making funeral arrangements for the late court skyseer.
  18. Noble's Gallery. Risuri nobility take turns offering art to hang here. Additionally, a trap door under the carpet here leads to the palace’s vault and bunker. The tunnel down is a highly defensible chokepoint, and the bunker has supplies for thirty people to last a month.
  19. Commons. Where people gather to meet the king.
  20. Party Hall. The wedding reception will occur here.
  21. Clayton Gallery.
  22. Offices.
  23. Unseen Garden. Pedestals stand here, each with footprints but not figure, to commemorate the lords of the Unseen Court.
  24. Lantern Garden. Numerous lanterns hang amid the flowers and topiaries.
  25. Titan Shrine. An identical set of statues in the Waking depicts the five fey titans.
  26. Stables.

Move Actions
> Polymorph x.gif At-Will
“It’s been quite a while,” Harkover says. “I’m afraid I’m out of practice.” He shrugs off his robe as his skin transforms into thick red scales. His face shifts into the snapping
maw of a dragon, and he swallows his golden orb as his body grows to the size of an elephant. Black necrosis slowly creeps from his wings toward his torso, but he ignores
the odd wound and rejoins the battle.
Effect: Harkover becomes a huge dragon, giving him access to some new attacks. His speed increases to 9, but he cannot fly, despite his wings. He has ongoing 5 necrotic
damage as long as he is in dragon form. He can return to human form as another move action.

encounter power other than this one.

Harkover interposes himself between the king and harm.
Trigger: An attack hits the monarch of Risur.
Effect (Immediate Interrupt): Harkover moves half his speed. If he can move adjacent to the king, the attack hits Harkover instead.
