Sometimes, the dance called life is graceful. Sometimes, you step on a toe or fall flat on your face.

Garden Tower

Home of Rhiannon Brock and Eregor, this unassuming stone tower sits in the middle of a forest meadow off the main road south of Rhydin from the Old Temple district.

A short driveway leads from the road to a garage where Eregor's vintage roadster is kept.

The drive is bordered by a stone path that continues past to a large meadow, which opens up to reveal a variety of gardens, colorful flowers interspersed with herbs and topiary bushes from dozens of worlds. In the back of the meadow, behind the tower itself, there are some small but productive orchards with apple, peach, plum and cherry trees. There are also a couple of beehives that provide an ample supply of honey. The highlight of the gardens, however, is undoubtedly the mallorn tree, a gift from Queen Teleperien.

Stepping through the front door, visitors to the Tower find that its interior dimensions are far more vast than the exterior would suggest. That is to say, it's bigger on the inside, a phenomenon that would likely be more shocking if this wasn't Rhydin. The wide, circular, two-story entry hall is the size of a small ballroom, with a polished hardwood floor and elegant wood panelling along the walls bearing paintings of landscapes--some familiar, others wonderfully alien. The ceiling glows with a soft light, and there is a decorative structure not unlike a chandelier in the center, though it gives off no light. (*)

Double doors lead further into the Tower from the entry hall, with stairs curving up on both side that lead to a second-level walkway. Other doors open off from there.

There are too many different chambers and halls to describe within the the Tower, but here are some highlights:
- playrooms for children, including one with a built-in slide...

- a small but well-stocked wine cellar

- several interior gardens

- a very large library

- swimming pool

(*) - The Tower is Eregor's TARDIS, and the entry hall is the main console room; the description given above is when it is not moving. When active, the "decorative structure" descends to become the console and Time Rotor, while the paintings become viewscreens.

Gardenhome Orchards

While the apple orchard outside the Tower was there before Eregor took up residence in the meadow, he has expanded it and added additional varieties of fruit since then. The pathway leading from the Tower to the orchards is lined with berry bushes as well.

These trees and bushes, along with citrus fruits and grapes grown inside the dimensionally-transcendent Tower itself, have come to supply a small but robust business, Gardenhome Orchards, providing both fresh fruits and choice beverages to buyers throughout Rhydin. Many a homemade pie or cobbler has been filled with Gardenhome apples or peaches.

Although Gardenhome does produce some beverages, inquiries about ciders or brandies are generally referred to The Brambles Orchard.

Available products

Fresh fruit:
- apples
- peaches
- plums
- cherries
- oranges
- grapefruit
- lemons
- red and white grapes
- blackberries
- raspberries
- strawberries

- orange juice
