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 large book to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Deviant' scribed in light orange ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Deviant's book..

Author: Deviant Date: Thu Dec 11 09:33:09 2008 Subject The Knife of Dracart Deviant was talking a walk through a particular forest when suddenly he fell flat on his face. He looked back to find the unconscious body of Khin as the object of his fall. He snickered to himself as he got up, and dusted himself off. He walked towards Khin's body and chuckled to himself. He was about to reach for Khin's pouch when he noticed a knife clenched in Khin's fist. He grabbed the dagger but it was clenched tightly. He pulled and pulled to no avail. Deviant finally placed his foot atop Khin's head as to acquire more leverage, and began to pull and pull, finally wrestling the dagger from Khin's grip. He looked at the blade for a while and thought "What an ugly looking blade" before throwing the blade into the forest. He then examined Khin's body and shook his head "Always a drug addled fool", he thought to himself. He then relieved Khin of his coin pouch and tobacco, and walked off whistling after delivering a sound kick to his ribs.
