Tsar Alexander's Palace
Tsar Alexander’s kingdom is a small, peaceful, rustic domain somewhere west or perhaps east of the Ural mountains. The palace, a modest but stately ancestral construction, is in the center of , the closest thing the kingdom has to a true city. Acres and acres of farmland surround it on all sides, though a small forest is just an hour’s ride away. The main trade road leads in the opposite direction to the neighboring kingdom.
The palace itself is a sprawling structure, well-appointed on the inside, but more like a wealthy merchant’s manor than a residence befitting a tsar. It contains a grand throne room for the tsar’s audiences, a smaller court for the village magistrate, offices for the officials, residences for the residents, a treasury for the treasure, a full complement of kitchens, larders, stables, washrooms, and whatnot. Underneath lies an underpopulated dungeon with a single well-guarded entrance. There is a single tower which has gone unused since the death of Alexander’s beloved wife. The center courtyard is the tsar’s garden, where he tends to his most treasured possession.
