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

Author: Mystearica Date: Mon Sep 15 18:31:44 2008 Subject Mystearica's backstory I was born in Qim Sudri, the City of Stone. My father is silvanesti, and basically left us when she was still pregnant. I dont think he ever knew that she was pregnant. I lived in that desert city my whole life. When i got older, my mother noticed my intelligence and wisdom, along with my hardiness and strength, and asked me if i wanted to join the army. pushes a young squire into the next room! I quickly agreed, i didnt want to stay in that town anymore than i had to. I was trained in the intelligence division, my first mission was to head out and find a powerful artifact that had supposedly resurfaced in a neighboring country. Me and a small group of troops headed out, only to find that it wasnt an artifact, it was an army. we were led straight into the front lines of the enemy army, who was "hiding" out in this area, waiting for an opportune time to strike. I immediately withdrew and took the troops back, and told my commanding officer, whom i had befriended. My commanding officer, Legretta, told me to flee. Apparently, I was wanted dead, and that she had already packed my things in her private quarters. she came back with them, along with some fireld rations. I quickly thanked her and left, hoping to one day repay her somehow. I left and lived with a friend of the family, who was a Magi in the Conclave. Interested, I asked if he could teach me the basics. He was old of age, and died not six months after agreeing to teach me. With incomplete training, i headed out, looking for another Magi. I traveled long and hard, ending up in Palanthas.
