The antechamber to Aleister's laboratory is barely larger than
the workshop itself, though it does contain a great many more shelves and (perhaps
for the best) no open flames. One bookcase displays row upon row of dingy bottles
with labels like "Mandrake," "Toothpaste," and "Eye
of Newt". A metronome ticks very slowly atop a low circular stand.
The crooked wooden door leads back to the laboratory, while hallways branch in three different directions.
