This is where you can post information about the world of Temeraire that you feel is important. It is all about worldbuilding and hopefully will help you imagine the locations where the action takes place since this is not really dealt with in the roleplaying chats.

Loch Laggan – Inverness-shire, Scotland

-lake with yellow sand
-forest with pines
-gravel road from northern shores to the complex of the covert
-covert on low mountain
-quadrangle of several large wooden sheds on a level clearing near the top, open fronts, where harnesses and aviators’ equipment are stored/repaired
-main building: medieval sort of fortification, four bare towers joined by thick stone walls, framing an enormous courtyard in the front and a squat, imposing hall that sinks directly into the mountaintop
-courtyard: heated flagstones, where dragons sleep, heated from below thanks to Roman bath
-building: narrow and dark corridors
-another open courtyard on the other side of the building (?, not quite sure about that), framed by building and steep cliff with an outcropping on the right where Celeritas can watch formation training
-valley, feeding grounds at the far end of the training valley

-captains seem to live in tower rooms
-Roman bath, close to where dragon eggs are until they hatch
-dining hall: captains and lieutenants dine at smaller round table, midwingmen and ensigns at long rectangle table, cadets eat earlier
