Grand Vault

From PathfinderWiki

The Grand Vault is an enormous hall within Azlanti Keep that serves as the final defense of the city of Absalom in case its walls and keeps are ever breached.1 The First Guard, Absalom's primary defense force, holds its assemblies in the room under the standards of the countless armies that have failed to breach the keep.1 The immense Grand Vault could once accommodate Absalom's entire population in times of siege (as it did during the First Siege of 23 AR), but it outgrew this capacity long ago.2

The Grand Vault also houses immense stone tablets upon which are written Aroden's First Laws of Absalom, which formed the foundation of the city's governmental structure.2
