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 well written novel to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Tywin' scribed in blue ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Tywin's book..


Author: Tywin Date: Wed Aug 26 18:29:11 2009 Subject Rats and cheese These past few days, it was the rat... i am usually accompanied by an animal companion, they help me forge and scout ahead and guard for me. they are drawn to my presence, they sense in me the hunger the longing for the hunt. lions, snakes wolfs and many different more. though, the last few days it was a rat...heaven knows what i did to draw IT. big enough, with sharp teeth and a nasty bite no doubt, but still a rat. so u understand when i blame cheese as the chief architect in my guards laxness to worn me of the incoming attack. i was relaxing at the pit in P A L A N T H A S. honing my favorite arrow ( i have one, i don't shoot it, its a long story) when a foul figure emerged. it eyed me closely, and left abruptly. i sensed something amiss, when my ...rat failed to notice the figure or to check on its business in the larger yard to the north. i looked and to my horror discovered the rat no where to be found. quickly i got to my feet, the feeling of incoming danger growing in my bowls heavy and rancid. there was battle to be had i concluded. i must be ready. in my hurry i forget my curative devices in my backpack and headed north. a lingering doubt caused me to look instead of strike, that cost me dearly. the figure was in the midst of readying his soul for combat; deadly unbalanced combat. we started dancing. it was unarguably decided that his physical combat skills were much inferior to mine; i easily jumped out of his Pound's, parryed the ones that got throw, for every one he missed, i landed 3. with dagger and sword a blaze' with speed and touch of thunder i slashed and pierced, i was glorious!! for all but 10 seconds. when i think of it now i remember that a man can have more the one weapon ( i myself offten use two), and some weapons are harder to see or comprehend. and i should have been ready for that... so it was. the man said the words and as the dust settled and his mouth rested, i - the hunter, was blind. quickly i rose to my sense from the early shock reminding myself that all those years and hunts have made me more the simple dagger wilder. i listened for the blows, i felt for the air move, making way for the incoming swing and i reacted. even with no sight, his skills were not enough and he fled, and then came back, i could not see or attack befor attacked myself so he was calm he said words and struck again, same result . he tried few times more, but seeing i was taxing him more the he was taxing me, his attacks dwindled. as i realized i must change this situation. i started running seeking refuge in some dark ally. i believe in my dash i cleared the city streets all together, finding refuge in some dank barn, and waited for my eyes to clear... and then i remembered...where in Mishakal's name was the rat?!?!!
