No New Posts Courtyard

Paved with stone, the courtyard is often used for impromptu practice of choirs and small orchestras, when the concert hall is already occupied or on particularly nice days. When the group faces the front of the building, the sound often arches up and back over their heads, creating a nice arena sound despite being out of doors. Though open and uncluttered, it is not as large as the courtyard of Ketrin or Mathon, so dragons are usually obliged to land and wait outside the grounds rather than in the courtyard.

No New Posts Dining Room

One of the larger rooms in the Hall, it nevertheless cannot fit all of the residents and students at the Hall who need to eat there. As a result, masters and senior journeymen often schedule their lessons to end at different times in the middle of the day, to prevent a huge rush at any one time, so it never gets too crowded to allow people a chance to eat.

It has the classical set up of tables for apprentices, journeymen and masters.

No New Posts Classrooms

A long hallway of the Hall is dedicated to nothing but classrooms, each with different purposes. Some have different types of student-class instruments--drums, strings, woodwind--while others have slate and chalk for lectures, others risers for singing, and a few smaller, private rooms where apprentices and journeymen can do private studying or composing, if they wish. Many are utilized for the dual purposes of classes for Harper apprentices and Hold children learning their Teaching Ballads or numbers.

No New Posts Record Room

Set up much like the Records Rooms in a Hold or Weyr, the Records Room of the Harper Hall is much cleaner and better maintained. Scribes spend most of their time at the Hall in this room, but it’s also used by Harpers who are studying or researching, and for lessons involving proper record keeping and history. Apprentices are often given the duty of cleaning or organizing the Records Room to keep it in good condition.

No New Posts Offices

Each of the masters has his own office, decorated to suit his particular style. In addition to the offices of the masters, there are a few larger rooms, divided with partitions, that the senior journeymen use, and junior journeymen can occasionally manage to squeeze into (if they’re particularly liked by the seniors or suck up to them, usually). There are more rooms than are needed for office space in this hallway, so the empty rooms can be used for testing.

No New Posts Concert Hall

Even larger than the dining hall, to accommodate for guests from outside the Hall coming to watch, the concert hall is a vast room with a vaulted ceiling, a wooden stage at the narrower end, and even a couple balconies along the walls for distinguished guests. Classes of apprentices often have concerts in here to practice being in front of crowds (these usually open only to other Harpers to lessen the stage fright of first performances), and it’s also used for instruction about acoustics. On special occasions, true concerts will be held, usually performed by journeymen and masters with apprentices ushering the crowd and working behind the scenes.

No New Posts Accommodation

Though not everyone who attends classes here, to learn or to teach, lives at the Harper Hall, some do, and there is an entire wing of the building dedicated to housing them. The lowest level with the larger rooms are reserved for masters or senior journeymen, with the rooms getting less desirable on the upper floor where the apprentice dormitories are.
