The Fire Hall(s)

Before you lies a large hall, devoid of tables. At the far end of the hall, a large marble fireplace has been set into the very foundation of the house. Two large pillars flank the fireplace, reaching from the high ceiling to the wooden floor. A portrait on the east wall catches your eye.
The south door is closed.
The only obvious exit is south.
A fair elf smiling shyly
An elven minstrel
A fireplace
Erestor the counsellor
