Examination Table

Info
A table where creatures can be examined and experimented upon. would need to have cages and wrist/ankle restraints, capable of holding still any type of creature.

Appearance
Would look similar to a medieval torture rack but instead of stretching out a victim it would have various types of restraints capable of holding any type of creature of any size for examining and experimentation. Would have knives, flasks and other arcane implements on a worktable near it as well where the items the Wizard is using for the experiments would be stored.

I have a suggestion for a name change for the room, Arcane Workshop! or to be punny, the Darkane Workshop! This is where you could develop items for rituals too (if those get implemented). In fact the Darkane Library, and Darkane Workshop could be two different rooms that magic using creatures could use to create and research new things.

Hmm, yes, those are good points. IMO a workshop would be more for building already available arcane items, which would be needed. A library would be another great place to research other types of arcane stuff, like new spells and rituals (if rituals get included).
