The Sacred Leaf
Evon’s Tea house and palatial estate. Tea is important in Yunshan culture. The way it is taken, the topics of discussion allowed, and many subtle nuances exist. There are ways to have tea with family, with Business associates, and causally with friends. There are proper ways to drink tea for those who are about to go into battle, and for those meeting for the first time. Business discussed over tea is considered official and binding, and many ventures are started and launched from Evon’s tea house. The Sacred Leaf is surrounded by some of the most beautiful gardens you’ve ever seen. All of the Statues, fountains, staircases that seem to lead up or down to nowhere, and ancient pillars that adorn the flowered hedges and cobble paths of the garden, are relics from the original ruins of Lei Kun. There is a small house at the very western edge of Evon’s land, nestled between a grove of mandarin trees and an ancient wall, which Evon has generously allowed you to stay in any time. Not too far from there, in the basement of an ancient slouching tower, another relic of Lei Kun, is a stairway that leads down to a path to the Underworld Market.
