The Wicked Witch

[Prior to this point, Sabella had enlisted the aid of Myronides to help her find 'pretty' clothes. He had done so, but the best prize was out of her grasp thus far - a specific pair of shoes... but no one was sure where the elusive footgear could be found. Unable to accouter herself to her standards, Sabella fell back on her favorite thing to do - seduction and corruption.]
The Baths
[Exits: north]

You are in a spacious chamber. Marble benches surround the room, facing in toward the large bathing pool that fills its center. Steam curls up from its waters, and you are aware of the warm humidity that fills the air. Water flows forth from a statue in the center of the pool, keeping it hot and fresh. A marble archway leads out to the north.
Abender is here.
Rubicant is here.
