the guarderobe has no midden, instead it magically obliterates any filth that reaches the bottom of its short shaft, and there is no odor within the room, the door smells of roses.
Shroud, who while having traveled for weeks with Amelia, has barely been seen by her, except as shadow.

he does check outvthe other two rooms
"Got a pinkish maroon room and a silver room to match the gold and the teal, same deal, just ro es and slippers."

"I will take a pair of slippers and a robe from the maroon room." He does so before Amelia reemerges, checking the room for any other items. When Amelia does return, he also uses it and tries to determine the source of the smell.

the door, magical to the touch, has a strong scent of roses to it.

Haveron, who had stood watch while Amelia was within, steps away from the door while Gareth enters.  Var chuckles.

Gareth does his business and prepares to leave. He will be amazed if roses is the only smell there by the time he leaves...he tries to find if there is something about the doors.

Seeing the pause in the normally overactive mage Amelia asks, "What's the matter, Gareth? Are you ok?"

"Whoever lived here was indeed a powerful enchanter, and possibly also a clean freak. Unfortunately much of it is very much built in. I am concerned, however, where he could have gotten so. much magical power...was he even human?"

make a thaumatology or hidden lore magic items roll.


These rooms, nearly identical and sparsely furnished are probably guest rooms.
