You are in a wizard's study! This is a large but cozy room of tall walnut bookcases, thick, persian carpeting, and velvet upholstered furniture. The room is lighted by several tall brass candelabras and a merry little fireplace is set into the east wall. A large rolltop desk sits in the middle of the room. And, in the corner, an old TV is playing a baseball game. In an open drawer of the desk is a black chess rook becomes raven on click laying on its side.
There is a curtained passage leading south.
