Around the central pillar there are several skulls, including one troll skull on a table. The left half of the room is dominated by a table and chairs in the center. The table is set for two, plates containing a seared slaughterfish and two salmon steaks, as well as two goblets, a potion of regeneration, bread and cheese. Beside the table is an open crate containing a sample of fly amanita, a gourd and an orange dartwing.
