WIP: Office/Storage Room

From my current Work in Progress.


2B. Office/Storage Room 
This room contains a writing desk and the account books for the farm. The accounts are kept in a neat, tight hand in the common tongue and show that the farm has either broken even or made a slim profit for the past fifteen years. Each account entry is signed in Anders’ name, and there are signature lines for each of his brothers and his father, each signed with various scrawled Xs. Anders is the only literate member of his family, as Red Thanek will attest. 

A large barrel, a small barrel, and a large crate also occupy this room. The crate is empty. The small barrel is full of rye whiskey. The large barrel is half full of pickles. Floating under the top layer of pickles are two female human hands wrapped in a rubbery placenta.
