The Ordainment of Garland

The Tigers' Den
[Exits: north]

Stepping across the threshold, mental and physical defenses you did
not realize you had raised... lower. Something about this place calls
to your spirit, setting you at ease and giving you a sense of safety
and security. Here is a place of shelter from the hazards of the Realm,
where you can relax in the companionship of fellow adventurers.

Look Garland: 
The warrior that stands before you meets your gaze clearly, without shame or
fear, and returns it with eyes of the darkest brown, almost black. His thick
shoulders are squared, held with pride and strength and a courtly grace. At
a towering height of three inches past six feet tall, his bulk might seem
oafish on another, but he bears himself with skill and dexterity. It would be
easy to imagine him as comfortable escorting a lady to the dance, as it would
dispatching a wicked creature menacing the young or helpless.
His smile is gentle, his gaze gentlemanly and not lecherous. Well schooled in
the courtly arts, this warrior-priest calls to mind the anticent tales of
heroes who gave their all for the honor of a lady, or the protection of the
weak. His eyes flash with bravery and honor, passion and loyalty, but his
heart belongs to only the lady of his life, and his fellow Tigers.
A faint flickering light dances in the air before him. A slight frown creases
his handsome face, and he raises a hand to lightly caress the shimmering aura.
"Go in peace," he whispers softly. For a moment, he is surrounded by a bright,
incandescent glow, as he grants the soul release from its torment. His eyes
return to yours, and he nods solemnly. "Too often, the value of souls is not
given proper respect. This is a bloody land... but even still, grace exists."
Garland is in perfect health.
