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 book to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Altarath' scribed in faded blue ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Altarath's book..

Altarath was strolling through the busy streets of Caergoth on his way to the docks for fishing supplies. It was early in the day and the sun beat down on Altarath's armor. Out of the corner of his eye Altarath noticed a tall minotaur woman arguing with two guardsmen about 30 paces away, outside the open gates of the city. Altarath began to approach to see what was the matter when the woman suddenly drew her swords and slashed across the two men's bellies with one swing, dropping them to the ground! Altarath made a prayer to Paladine and engaged the woman, and she tore into him, her slashes ringing loudly off of Altarath's shield and plate armor. She fought dirty, kicking the gravel from the street into Altarath's eyes, and he fell back. He chanted a prayer to heal his wounds, and re-engaged the woman, calling upon Paladine's heavenly wrath to smite her down. Altarath stood over the defeated minotaur fighter, and made a prayer for her soul to find the light and cease her violence.
