Exalted South: Crimson Sands
Teahouse of the Pomegranate Moon
Abyssal Manse ●
Hidden behind twisting back alleyways and blind corners in New Chiaroscuro lies a solemn teahouse. The structure is dark wood and dingy rice paper sat atop a foundation of black glass. Here, the living and the dead mingle as this teahouse lies in one of the numerous shadowlands within the great southern city. The teahouse is not common knowledge, and though its power is small in the grand schemes of both Creation and the Underworld, the services offered within are among the rarest to be found.
Game Effects: (Manse’s rating of 1) x2 +3 Maintenance (simple cleaning and tea preparation), +1 Fragility (rice paper walls) = 5 Creation Points. These Teahouse of the Pomegranate Moon is located inside a Shadowland (2, available to manses of any level). Minor Tricks and Traps (1) obscure the building. A single Bound Servitor (2) in the form of a ghostly tea master is always on duty. A Ghost-Speaker’s Stone crystallizes in a soulsteel cage hanging in the main room.
