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

From the pages of Inna's book..

Author: Inna Date: Sat Jun 28 15:26:42 2008 Subject Strange things in the sky 'Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, ' Inna thought, listening to the droning voice of the instructor. Although the sun was at it's zenith in the sky, the young elven girl yawned, hiding it with the book in her hands. She shuffled, drawing the instructor's eyes to her. He shook his head, continuing his lectures. Knowing that he would continue, she picked up a writing stick and, dipping it in ink, started penning words on a blank piece of paper in front of her. The seemingly nonsense words on the page gave her a little thrill, keeping her mind occupied. In fact, occupied enough that she was unaware that the lecture was finished and the instructor now stood behind her. "Doodling again," the instructor asked, interrupting Inna's work. She sheepishly looked up at him, smiling shyly. "I'm not drawing," she returned, trying to hide the paper. It didn't work. The instructor picked up the paper. He tried to read what was written. "Shirak...what is this mumble of words? This is the not from the lecture today," he grumbled, shaking his head. He wadded the paper back into a ball, pointing out the door. Inna stood, gathering her stuff. She bowed deeply and left the room. As night fell, Inna watched the moon rise over the trees, feeling a bit of a spark. Then something else caught her sight. Something dark waited on the horizon, not on the ground, nor in the air. She shook her head, going to her bed.
