The Great Library of Palanthas

Astinus' Office

Dominating the center of this room is a massive birch desk. Legend claims this desk has supported the thousands of volumes of history Astinus has recorded. A large pot of ink, a container of sharpened quills, and a candelabra complete the desks decorations. Small windows line the room, allowing light to trickle in and gently illuminate the entire room. A comfortable couch rests against the west wall. Tapestries hang on the walls between the windows. Shelves line the walls, filled with tomes of the more recent records of heroes and villians upon the face of Krynn.

The librarian notices you aren't reading anything... Astinus hands a pamphlet to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Dindom' scribed in light orange ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

Author: Dindom Date: Fri Jun 19 01:25:18 2009 Subject Another kender in the city So here I am, right? Just wandering around town, nothing really to do except enjoy the nice weather and suck on mah pipe! And of course there are kender everywhere, little things are like rats! They get underfoot and trip you up and leave you homeless. Anyway, I bend over to pick up what seemed to be a Doll that had all it's stuffing taken out.... just as I bend over, I recieved a swift kick in mah rear and fell to the ground. After I come to my senses, I notice a kender in the place of where I used to be. He's laughing at me and on his belt lies my money pouch. "What the Blazing Majere? Give that back 'efore I feed you to the lions!" "Never! You have a fat face.... fat face!". And with that, the kender ran off. After a brief pursuit around town, He ended up with my daggers in his back (which then went back into my sheath). I asked the local Quest Master for a pardon, and after eating a piece of paper, he said "You are now pardoned for your crimes" Anyway, I went downstairs back to the scene and I rummaged through Rurik's belongings, wondering what could compensate me for the cost of my Pardon. I decided a nice shiny lantern. After leaving the scene of the crime (for which I am now pardoned), it wasn't long before I noticed the same kender harassing me again and again. It was a long game of cat and mouse between him and I. He got the upper hand a couple times but in the end, I couldn't catch the quick little Kender.
(ooc: 1. story format turns stories into walls of text? 2. He tried to steal from me - I killed him - he chased me - I chased him - no one died again. and also, he broke his 24 hour protection by attacking me)
