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 brief catalogue to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Aedon' scribed in glowing maroon ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Aedon's book..


Author: Aedon Date: Sun Dec 6 05:57:28 2009 Subject A cold day The winds swept through the fridged temple of paladine as Aedon knelt on the flagstones. The metal of the symbol of paladine was freezing to his skin, but still he knelt, relishing the pain for his God. From the temple, a priest watched him, slowly shaking his head. Aedon's worship boarderd on fanatisism. He had once beat a fellow acolyte because of a dissenting opinion of sacred texts. The priest walked out to Aedon. "My son. Day after day, you have tormented yourself. And why? Paladine does not require such pain-laden devotion." Aedon didn't even look up. "But I require it, Father." The priest sighed, looking down at Aedon, kneeling in the snow. "My son, why do you seek such violence in Paladine's service? surely a life of healing would better suit the Gods needs?" Aedon seemed to flinch at the words, although he did not move. "There are many who are called to violence by our enemies, Father. Paladine has called me to right the balance somewhat. The fact that many others serve him by healing is of no consequence to my actions." The priest looked out over the fresh snow that coated the grounds. "And you will not be convinced that your path is contrary to what is right?" Aedon stared straight ahead. "No father." The Priest sighed, and walked back into the temple. Outside, Aedon continued to kneel in the snow.
