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 pulp magazine to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Omar' scribed in faded maroon ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Omar's book..

Author: Omar Date: Thu Aug 30 01:00:57 2007 Subject Omar's History As per yer request I'm tellin ye a bit about meself so ye know what my intentions be. Me real name aint important. People on the sea call me Omar. I aint captained a ship afore although I could. I aint the type to tell me mates to go hither and thither and do what I says. I aint got a family and I aint got many friends cause I aint from around these parts. If ye ask which God I worship I'd tell ye I don't worship any god to be true although I pray to the one they call Nuitari when I needs help with me magic cause I'm told that be who has the answers in that regard. I see the black moon in the sky just as clear as I see the others. If ye try ta give me a robe it won't fit. I wear a grey one I took from a dern braggart who tried ta keel haul me on me own skiff affer I was kindly enough to rescue him from a shipwreck. Oh, scuse me for forgettin the introductions but I'm an ogre. I'm about 10 feet tall and that's why I was makin such a fuss over me robe. Anyway, if ye try to find me a black robe it's gonna have ta be tailored fer me proportions. I aint got any needs except the robe and I can get me own if ye don't make habit o supplyin' em. I been around a lotta years and don't need treatin like I'm a wet behind the ears initiate. I can find me own way to the library and will work to earn me keep. I expect ta be treated with respect, and if I am ye'll get it straight back. We'll not mention what happens when I'm not treated like an equal. I been around a lotta years. Anyhow, remember I'm a Sea Dog and don't do well with livin in quarters on land, but I'm more'n willing to do what I have ta do ta get me magical knowledge improved. Let me know if ye need anythin at all. Oh, and if you're worried about puttin a giant up in yer quarters don't fret yerselves. Although I'm sure the Conclave can take care o their own, I thought ye might wanna know I aint never killed a man that aint tried to do me in first and I always try ta tie em up or somethin the first few times. This one feller kept comin after me after I let him go several times so I finally threw him in the water to the sharks. -Omar the Sea Dog, at yer service. [A bird-shaped seal is affixed to the bottom of the parchment in green wax.]
