At the start of the first encounter here ask:

How does this place record your family’s history?

Learning this place’s name unlocks:

Some families might keep a library of written records, but in a largely post-literate world, most archives will likely take other forms. Paintings might aid bards in the performance of oral histories, providing prompts, a particularly apt stage, or both at once. Perhaps a path through a statuary garden leads you through your family history. Perhaps the archive represents nothing more than the site where a chosen member of your family recites your history each year during at a particular festival.
