Legacy of Fire
Bayt al-Bazan is a massive efreeti citadel in the Noble District of the fabled City of Brass on the Elemental Plane of Fire. The palace is constructed entirely of living brass and abuts the great brass wall that encircles the city, overlooking the surrounding Sea of Fire. Its highest dome rises 250 feet above the surrounding streets, and it includes a sublevel that lies below its foundations. Each level is 50 feet high with 40-foot ceilings and 10 feet of living brass separating one floor from the next, providing an extremely open and airy atmosphere for the Large-sized efreet who called it home. The living brass walls vary in thickness from a foot to many tens of feet. Doors are of living brass 6 inches thick, and have a handle on each side. Unless otherwise noted, all doors have locks.
Almost every room has one or more wall-mounted lamps fed by pipes nested within the walls that channel fire from the surrounding plane. The lamps provide bright illumination in every room unless otherwise noted. Windows and arrow slits likewise allow in the outside illumination of the burning skies above the city, but these can be closed from within by locking iron shutters that are equal in strength to iron doors. The temperature within the bounds of the city, including Bayt al-Bazan, remains at a fairly constant 101º F, despite what conditions may exist at the time outside the city walls. In addition, all spells and spell-like abilities with the fire descriptor are both maximized and enlarged when cast on the Plane of Fire, and those that use or create water are impeded, and require a Spellcraft check (DC 20 + the level of the spell) to be successfully cast.
