The ancient Ghyllians had a special fixation with furniture; it permeated all phacets of their lifes. They had furniture commemorating all and any ocasions, the passing of a loved one, the moving into a new house, etc. Even after death, furniture was present. By -300 EC, entire graves were filled to the top with dining rooms, bedrooms and living rooms, lefting little room for the burial for the bodies of Ghyllians themselves. This, however, stopped aproximately in -295 EC, as the rare wood found in the Cactus forests named Tablankel, became very scarce, due to overusage of chairs in burials. This forced the Ghyllians to develop a more minimalist approach. They finally came up with the Ancestral burial tableu. This, however, did not last long, as the Tablankel finally became extinct in -265 EC, and the Ghyllians, having forgotten about their furniture fixation, abondoned the including of any furniture in their graves.

Components of Ancient burial tableu

As with any piece of furniture, an Ancient burial tableu can be made of any sahpe, and with any style. However, there are many consistencies throughtout all of them.

The legs: These usually represent the overall view of the family and Society, of the buried Ghyllian. Proving that Ghyllians have no idealistic views of dead people, the legs of particullary evil and deranged characters are twisted, painted with dark colours and filled with accounts of their unspeakable horrours. The tablues of good, benefitial characters to Society, have simple and elegant legs, painted with a single even coat of a bright colour.
