Blackwood Manor is The Pack's home. A strange and mystical house, it has many rooms, which, can change and alter themselves to said inhabitants any desires, including the look and feel of being outdoors. The manor has been moved several times by Pierce Verros' transportation machine; despite Taylor Verro and Syllve's magical wards keeping the manor invisible to passerby, they have been discovered multiple times and have been forced to move. The manor now rests in the southern lands, just outside of Haven.
Before becoming the home of The Pack, Blackwood Manor was the home of Lady Katrina Blackwood, a noble of Haven. She was secretly the leader of a sect that worshipped Lilith, and as such, there are many dark rooms hidden within the Manor.
With the exception of Tai and Kong, the manor is currently not inhabited. This began with the Aranos Saga, with The Pack not able to risk such a deadly enemy knowing where they lived.
Blackwood Manor is a massive mansion consisting of a total of eight levels, including the roof and the two basement levels, and also has two secret sublevels as well. Everyone has their own bedrooms and even their own personal use rooms, for example, Taylor has his own great Library, while Archerios has his own forge.
The magical nature of the Manor comes from a spell that Raith cast, and as such, there can be quite literally, an infinite number of rooms if needed. These rooms can take on the form of whatever the person desires, with reality itself being bent and twisted. An example of this is the very real forest grove within Raith's own room.
The Manor houses many, many, hidden rooms and secret passages, some of which are yet to even be discovered (though Eamon knows the entire layout). Some of these rooms are also extremely dangerous, as they are traprooms designed to kill (or grievously injure) those who enter.
The mansion grounds itself is very large, consisting of a few acres of land. While at first this was mostly woodlands, ever since the mansion was moved to the current location near the southern border, it has since become beach front property, and even the trees became tropical palms and more.
The lagoon that surrounded much of the mansion while at its original location, has magically, as well as the rest of the surrounding land, been teleported to all the locations thereafter.
The Manor holds many guest rooms and bathrooms. Most of everyone's private rooms include bathrooms of their own.

Trap Room 1Edit
Formerly secret, was discovered by Taylor on accident. A very, very dangerous room. It is more like a tiny empty closet. Once inside, the door shuts and locks, the floor gives way, and the person is sent plummeting below into a pit of spikes. Needless to say, Taylor had a blast.
Erykas' and Taylor's RoomEdit
Erykas' Medical OfficeEdit
Also known as the sick bay, the infirmary, or Erykas' Medical Lab. Contains all of her medical equipment and needs, and is almost always where someone ends up when they're badly injured. Countless lives have been saved in this room.
Directly connected to the Doctor's lab, this room was designed to contain anything, and escape is almost virtually impossible.

Not even a rampaging Archerios was able to break through the glass, but he did manage to cause quite a few cracks.

As such, he keeps them locked away.

This room is both Taylor's personal Elemental training room, and on occasions, his prison. The floor is made of steel grating, with a pool of lava below.

This room utilizes the mystical expansion properties of the Manor to the max, and is quite possibly larger than the Manor itself. It is made up of multiple areas, each just as dangerous as the last.
The Science LaboratoryEdit
Also known as the R&D lab, this is the main lab where all of the duo's scientific experiements and projects are carried out. Contains multiple things that can end all life as we know it.
