The Empyrean Salle is the Adamantine Arrow for the state of Oregon and originally extending to the few Arrows in Washington state as well. They are based out of Springfield, OR, though they have members in all the Oregonian Consilii, and more than a few who are part of no Consilium.
The Empyrean Salle has laid claim to an old Boy Scouts camp grounds, which includes a potent Hallow. The facility has seen life as a camp grounds and eventually a doomsday survivalist cult compound before the Empyrean Salle laid claim to it. The facility itself features extensive training grounds and is very rustic in nature, with magic performing many of the functions (particularly in security) that most people depend on technology to fulfill.
Though the Empyrean Salle is always busy with training Arrows, it is often a virtual ghost town (which helps keep it under the radar of nosy neighbors). The main exception to this is every four months (in February, June and October, when the Salle hosts its Grand Melee training weekends, four day intensives that feature extensive combat and military-style training, as well as discussions of policy and the tending to the Order's mystic initiations and similar functions.
