The sofa is so large that the entire party of PCs will be able to sit on it at one time if they desire. There is nothing unusual about the sofa, nothing is hidden or lost in its cushions, and it is in poor condition like most of the other items in these rooms. If all the PCs decide to sit on the sofa at one time, it will promptly collapse beneath them. Next to the sofa is a stone table bearing a metal tray and six crystal goblets. The tray has rusted and is worthless, but the goblets are in good condition (despite a heavy layer of grime) and are worth 25 gp each.
The skulls are in fair condition, some displaying the wounds that caused them to be here. This bedroom also contains three stuffed chairs, a small writing table and wooden chair, and a night table. All these are in poor condition. An oil lamp stands on the night table, its oil long ago evaporated. In addition to the skulls, the walls in this room are decorated with a large tapestry depicting a snake kingdom ruled by a giant snake, and a life-size portrait of the Falcon in human form. She wears robes, a cloak, and a tiara that portray her as royalty; she stands in a n arrogant, triumphant pose.
