The Boiler Room is a series of moist tunnels in which the entirety of Ja’luhhor’Alotha’s heated water is produced. The labyrinth is heavily tied to the Kenopsic Planes. It uses millions of boilers and other machinery to heat the liquids that flow through Ja’luhhor’Alotha, hence its namesake. There are rumors that within these machines hides treasures beyond imagining, inaccessible due to the heat.
The floors of the Boiler Room are decrepit, moist and damp with a plethora of liquids. A thick, filthy film of fungal growth covers the brick walls. Claustrophobic, the winding brick tunnels of the place are fetid. Scorching steam spews from the aged pipes tangled like vines throughout the area, and the remaining machinery is rusted and in disrepair. Despite this, they maintain function; churning onwards, heating and cooling the vital fluids found throughout Ja’luhhor’Alotha.
The tangled cogwork of machinery, piping, and cables makes traversing the place difficult. The Boiler Room was not designed to be traversed by a living organism, it was formed by Ja’luhhor’Alotha itself to supply its needs. It is one of the many organs in Ja’luhhor’Alotha that keep it, and its people alive. This is why the machinery is seemingly immortal, invulnerable to entropy and decay. This is why the Boiler Room thrives despite its withering.
The similar kenopsia that is felt when one enters the Boiler Room makes the place reminiscent of the Draft. The Boiler Room might be one of the first environments to be formed by Ja’luhhor’Alotha, as its uncanny resemblance to the Draft is easily recognizable. In a similar manner to the other “organs” of Ja’luhhor’Alotha, the feeling of not belonging overwhelms any living thing that enters the place. This feeling may drive a poor organism to suicide.
Aside from the sarcous and fungal growths that appear in every Ja’luhhor’Alothian organ, the Boiler Room is completely uninhabited. Unlike some of the other organs, this place is completely self-sufficient; independently functioning without assistance from artificial lifeforms.
