The building has been built since the Fall. […] The woodwork has been intentionally scuffed to make it look a few centuries older.


A Clay Man […] keeps the door. He admits Rubbery Men without question, but challenges the human visitors.

Description summary:
The second paragraph varies depending on your railway's charter.

CharterSecond Paragraph
1 (Wealth)There are a couple of well-dressed ladies ahead of you on the stairs, and you overhear a low-voiced disagreement about whether it is polite to wear gloves when shaking hands with a Rubbery person.
2 (Charity)Two or three urchins are sitting on the stairs, but they move aside when you approach.
3 (Scientific Knowledge)A couple of scholars from Benthic are ahead of you on the stairs – not wearing their academic robes at the moment, but the tweed and spectacles are hard to mistake.
4 (Worker Ownership)Ahead of you on the stairs are a couple of members of the Tracklayers' Union. Slightly surprising to see them here, perhaps, but they have a variety of interests, after all.
5 (Expansion of the Church)Two deacons are ahead of you on the stairs, one rather self-consciously holding a stack of pamphlets labelled Witnessing to the Rubbery Man. […] After a desperate and ineffectual glance round for a bin, he balls them up and crams them into his pocket […]
10 (Infernal Alliance)A couple of Devils are indolently ascending the stairs. You are offered a glimpse of leopard-spotted spats.
