Round Table Meeting Hall[]

A large room consisting of a single circular table bathed in light, it stands on supports that lead down into darkness. The only method of sitting at the table is to walk a narrow path to one of the seats with a chasm to either side. This is where the highest ranking members of the Order including the Grigori, the Paladin and the Arc Knights meet to discuss matters.[1]
