... now they must watch their abundance of luxuries fall away, making room for the tools of survival, and witness this time of relative peace wither into the same fears that harper's ballads had warned them about for generations.

Streets of the Hold (General)

Similar to ancient Rome, the roads leading into the Hold are created of layered rock and gravel several feet thick. The streets nearest the Hold are cobbled. Drainage ditches have been included every few feet.

Market & Gather Grounds

A relatively centralized location where vendors set up shop once a week in larger Holds and once or twice a month in smaller Holds. Similar to a farmer's market or a bazaar, stalls are set up to display goods for sale, barter and trade. Both, local and outside Traders and Craftsmen attend.

Inamourata's Mask

Inamourata's Mask is a posh entertainment (pillowcrafting) establishment geared toward a high-class patronage, run by the veteran pillowcrafter, Inamourata herself. Now in her 40s or 50s, she has established two reputable locations, in Telgar River Hold and Southern Telgar Hold, which have become well recognized for their place in society, even if at the cost of a few jealous wives. On the outside, it is rather unspectacular, nestled in a fairly well-to-do neighborhood with streets lined by candle-lit lamps. A single lamp glows outside its street-side entrance which, when lit, means that their doors are open, but when snuffed out, they are not accepting new visitors. The interior is finely decorated, many of its rooms thrown about with many floor pillows and low tables, from its ceilings hung sultry swags of charmeuse curtains. Narrow halls run between a maze of rooms which become a place to host individuals or group parties, its unique construction of thin, sliding doors were more like sliding walls, as they could be adjusted to open rooms into large party areas or slid to a close, partitioning off more private rooms. This often creates an interesting environment for giant games of intimate hide and seek. To make things even more entertaining, Inamourata's Mask maintains a rather masquerade-like theme, requiring that all guests who enter acquire one of the various Venetian masks at the door, or provide their own. Masks come in all shapes and sizes from feminine metal filigree, feline-esque or colourful, nature-inspired masks to half-masks and a heavier, more masculine sort resembling the fore-part of a helmet that frames a fuller-faced variety. Other masquerading affects are also greatly encouraged, as the entire venue is set up in hopes of providing an escape from the daily doldrums for its customers. Considering the elite clientele that Inamourata's Mask caters to, the pillowcrafters employed there are trained in the arts -of conversation, song and dance. Brand of entertainment, food and drink, are the choice of the patron -all at a very fine price. It is not unheard of that a patron would request only one woman during his visits there and offer to be her sponsor of sorts in exchange for an exotic, talented, high-class mistress.

Holdless Settlement

The Settlement itself, has become an extension of the outer walls and ongoings of Telgar River Hold. The Westernmost gate, actually facing South West, which used to lead outside the Hold's walls, now leads into this new and somewhat independent district. There are two main roads that lead through it, though many others now create cross-sections of land which have been developed into a small, weekend gather square and areas for proper crafters' workshops and lofts above for living space. Intermittent, are other locations such as public baths, a localized infirmary, and somewhat larger estates for officials to live and office out of. There has also been added a dragon's landing pad near the centralized gather square.

The Amber Room

Though it might be a correct assessment that most of Telgar River Hold was grande, but not overly pretentious, this room happened to be one space that TRH's Lord Holder had truly indulged in. There were windows with large bronze shutters to secure them in a time of Thread, which lined the far side of the meeting room. A single large table with enough chairs to seat 12 to 18 people was situated at the center of the room with a long golden and amber hued runner down the length of it. An ornate, gold candelabrum and crystal bowls supported by golden dragon claws, inside of which fruit was displayed, became the table's centerpieces. The floor was warmly coloured hardwood and the walls were like none seen on Pern before. It was as if nigh every surface had been painted in gold. But no, there was little actual gold respectively in the room compared to the looks of it; rather, nearly every inch of the room's walls had been faced in polished stones of Amber, carrying the warmth of the natural stone as the theme throughout the entire room. Many wall sconces were situated along these walls, where periodic displays of mirrors were used to create a fantastical array of reflective lighting, causing the entire space to glow with absolutely regal warmth.

Chorong Rebel Hideout

Though rumours may spread about its existence, the true location of the Chorong's Headquarters remains a mystery to all but those who serve the rebels there. Not all rebels are aware of its exact location, though it is said that it is located deep in a forest that is so dark that sunlight does not reach the ground. It is also rumoured that all those who seek it are killed, and that all those who manage to enter its doors never leave alive.

Fight Club

The fight club is a stone structured building that is not an open-air establishment, but above the platformed arena built at the center of this two-story building, is a large sky light. The vaulted skylight is roofed like the rest of the building, but is built of windows that allow natural light to flood the interior, in order to spotlight the arena below, so to speak. 
The bottom floor of the fight club has also been used for other types of performances, and around the stage are spread tables and chairs for spectators. A kitchen in the back of the house provides food and refreshment. There are usually waiters walking the crowds with trays full of beer-filled mugs to be sold. And of course, there is a station to place bets on the matches that take place.
The top floor of the fight club is much like a VIP room. Three sides of the establishment have balcony overhead, looking down on the stage where brawlers gather to have their fun.

There is a minimal door price, but be quick to get tickets, they sell out fast.

The Dusty Crone

A tavern whose owner was an old Harper woman well past her prime. Of course, 'crone' tended to illicit a more haggardly image, when in fact, for an old broad, she was rather comely.  The harper woman turned entrepreneur, was in fact also a keeper of a good collection of her own books and records, and owns a side business of selling writing tools and books. The woman lives in the loft above the bar, keeping all of her writings and old Harper materials there. She still actively entertains the gathering of patrons that join in nightly festivities of their own kind, making merry with friends and family, but she has not made the Dusty Crone into an Inn. She does keep an extra room however, for the rare occasion someone might be in need, unable to find a room elsewhere. But generally, once the woman was ready to turn away customers for the night, business is closed. Not having patrons at the establishment 24/7 cut down on the trouble that could stir, and also tends to draw business of locals who make it into a place of community rather than a place of strangers. She preferred things that way. And where people were comfortable around the company they shared, they tended to drink and also talk quite a lot.
