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 massive tome lined with fake jewels to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Aurelis' scribed in white ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Aurelis's book..

The boy cringed as the whip connected with his back.

**Crack**

The boy winced as the paddle thumped against his rump.

**Thunk** The boy stood stoically as a wooden sword landed across his bare arms.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ By the tender age of 17, the young boy of Caergoth was well developed mentally and physically. His eyes shone a cold and harsh blue, a dark blue. He had been taught by his father, at a young age, the distinct line that existed between right and wrong, good and evil. There was no gray area. He had been trained to take a rough blow and to dish one out. Physical pain did not bother him. The times he felt pain came only when good people suffered at the hands of the malignant. Raised in the city of Caergoth, his father played the biggest role in his life. The man had been a squire in the Knights of Solamnia but had dreamed of so much more. He lived those dreams through his son, whom he had conditioned from birth to become a Knight of Solamnia. His hopes came to fruition as he sent his boy on a ship to Palanthas. Failure was not an option. +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
