OOC: This is to keep some general information about the setting and the discussion in one place for you to look up when you devise your suggestions and arguments. I will add our decisions to this thread once the discussion moves on.
The council chamber was a large rectangular room that was divided into a central section with the great table and the chairs and an outer section with some sidetables. The central section had a very high ceiling with windows in the upper part spreading additional light on the table. Along the upper windows ran an arcaded gallery around the room which was accessible from the next higher storey and had in earlier times been used for foreign emissaries and other dignitaries to visit meetings that were of interest to them but in which they had no vote. The servants sometimes called it the ambassador's gallery for that reason.
On the lower level the outer section was separated from the room in a similar arcaded manner but freely accessible from the central section. The sealed windows were on two opposite sides of the room. On the third side was the large wooden, two winged door and at the other side some sidetables and wooden chests for storing things or disposing of no longer or not yet needed documents.
