Arcane Empire II
Location: Columbia Court; Suite 310
The team purchased a suite in a small office building in the gaslamp district of San Diego. There are three physical offices, a reception area, and a small snack room but the team added 5 gates to dimensional realms.
An android receptionist greets customers at all hours of the day or night and can help clients get in touch with team members as well as discuss rates and which team members might best serve their needs. The receptionist is fluent in English, Irish Gaelic, Latin, and Imperial.
The reception area has two chairs and a love seat for guests to sit in while they wait and the receptionist can provide coffee, candy, light snacks, and fresh fruit as well (bathrooms are on the opposite side of the courtyard from the office). The receptionist has a standard computer with access to a 60 in wall display behind her to run advertisements, television, or demonstrations and also has a duplex color printer to print out reminders, receipts, promotions, and so on. Coffee cups, water glasses, pens, and stationary are decorated with the company logo and the receptionist can also provide t-shirts, towels, hats, frisbees, and other promotional materials with the company logo for those interested.
Four of the dimensional realms are personal retreats, but one is designated as a safe house for high risk clients or guests (made to accommodate 8 individuals/couples or less if they bring children – up to 16 people in 8 bedrooms).

Safe House Security
The entire safe house realm is under the protection of mage’s private sanctum preventing any form of scrying and dimensional lock so the door to the office is the only way in or out. The door to the office can be blocked by an animated Adamantine shutter (Hardness 25, HP 28/56/84 with fast healing 5). A Circle of Clarity and Invisibility Purge covers the entrance as well to make it less likely for disguised or invisible foes to slip in when the door is open.
