The Saga of Rosemary Goodfruit
The Governor's Manse
The great mansion that sits high in the hills above Liberté is owned by the Governor of the colony. It is modelled after modern Montagne design, and would not be out of place amongst the élite of Charouse. Its walls, gardens, corridors and bedrooms are all intricately designed and adorned with expensive artworks and marble. It houses a grand ballroom for entertaining foreign diplomats and Montagne nobles, has a well kept stables (though the exotic environment makes poor ground for breeding most Thean horses, much to the Governor’s chagrin) and contains a sumptuous Numan-style bath-house where the inhabitants (usually only the Governor himself) can relax.
The road to the mansion goes through several miles of forest before leading up through a series of cliffs to the fortress that serves as the manse’s gatehouse, as well as the island’s gaol. It is highly secure from the gaol to the manse, but the forest road is rumoured to be watched by a group of partisans, though no confirmed reports of any such group have been made.
