Having provided King Solomon somewhere to sleep, we can go on to provide somewhere for him to sit - a chair in the neighbouring room (along with one or two useful items):
solomonStudy : Room 'Study' 'the study'
"This is another square, cedar-panelled room, with windows to north and south
and doors to east and west. It is largely bare apart from a table and chair
over by the northern window. "
east = solBedroomDoorOutside
west = studyDoor
Okay, so you think a study is a bit of an anachronism in a tenth-century BCE palace; you're probably right, but then where did Solomon sit around while he was getting all that wisdom? The Baaras root, by the way, will be used for its exorcistic properties. In the meantime, we already have another chair, the one in the cabin of our ship:
cabinChair : Chair 'padded chair/cushion' 'chair' @deskRear
"It's a fine wooden chair with a round back and a padded cushion. "
initSpecialDesc = "A wooden chair sits behind the desk. "
