This is the Haphaetus cabin. Little space is taken up by the beds, as they are in private rooms below. Tools, nuts, bolts, and other pieces of machinary litter the cabin. Schematics are tacked up on bulletin boards and a fire pole comes from above. All sorts of forged weapons are hung on walls or in cabinets.

Good if you are studying history; not so much if you are expecting a great history-based story. Tough reading!
