Standing at the top of the Madridean hill, in the middle of the ring of guild headquarters, is the Guildhall, an intricately made stone building with shattered windows and crumbling steps. The Great Tree rises out of the corpse of what used to be the Guildhall, the centre of Madridean government. This tree grew during the time of Méadaigh's conquest and now is the subject of much discussion. The Council of the Twelve which now meets in the Auberon's Destiny headquarters instead of the Guildhall has yet to decide if the tree should be removed, how it should be removed, or if it should be left and the Guildhall be built around it or elsewhere entirely. The magical lamps that illuminate the Capitol Circle are still in action, despite everything: still, they shine bright enough at night to be seen in the distance.
