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 thread-bare book bound in cloth to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Kryonara' scribed in unearthly grey ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Kryonara's book..


Author: Kryonara Date: Fri Jun 5 18:24:33 2009 Subject A New Beginning After many years he was returning to his city of birth, Solace. The many years travelling with his parents, although letting him learn about foreign countries and cultures, had left a large gap in the studies of his true calling. He'd hated the endless weeks cooped up in a city while his father made deals and argued policy with his human counter parts. He remembered the early years as the son of a Noble, a low level diplomat not yet distinguished enough to deal with the Capitals, visiting other nobles he was always allowed to go where he pleased and when in castles or on estates spent a lot of time with the woodsmen and hunters that patrolled the estates and put fresh meat on the feast tables. As his fathers eminence as a diplomat grew he was more often posted to large cities. In contrast to the wonderful time he enjoyed when in the country side human cities where the bane of his existence. Thousands of people packed closely together never venturing out into the wilderness beyond. Often the nearest piece of natural land was days of travel through farm land. And so as his father received news that once again he was to be posted to a large city to over see trade negotiations Kryonara decided it was time to head of on his own and seek his own destiny. He declared to his parents that he was going home to Solace where he would forge his own destiny. And so he found himself in Solace his home town and yet foreign to him. He was determined to make it own his own without the help of his father or the family name and so stayed out of the political arena but did sign up to help the town watch.
