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 elegant book bound in elf-skin to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Ulvak' scribed in deep grey ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

Author: Ulvak Date: Wed Dec 23 06:44:32 2009 Subject Farm Hand When Ulvak was always a very curious lad. He would always get into trouble for things he would do or things that he would ask. His father never quite accepted his Ulvak's ways, he wanted Ulvak to become a farm hand. Ulvak started out as a farm hand doing what he thought was normal but was really moving things telepathically. When he found out about this magic, he was relentlessly wanting to know more. Of course on the farm nobody knew anything about magic. Because of this, he set out to find out more about magic and eventually become a master at using magic. Author: Ulvak Date: Thu Dec 24 23:08:54 2009 Subject Revenge with Clide Once apon a time, long long ago... I had a best friend. His name was Clide. People would never see us apart, we were always at eachother's side. Everybody thought that we were brothers. One day, I got a wife. I started to hang out with my wife more and more and Clide less and less. He then started to get more and more jealous. One day he just cracked. He went out and bought a mace and came to my house determined to take her from me. My wife happened to answer the door and she didn't even have time to say anything because she didn't even see a thing. When I heared the commotion, I ran to the front door. I saw Clide running away. I made a 2" scar down my left eye to remind me of him and next time I see him, I would kill him. I found him North Palanthas and beat him bad. We sorted out our differences and the past. Now we are best friends again. Author: Ulvak Date: Wed Mar 3 17:25:56 2010 Subject One-Upped Up until lately, I had an older brother. His name was Pike. I was proud of him for getting into the Conclave. He told me all about how his spells bevcame stronger just because of this spirit inside of one of the rooms. One day I saw my dad crying. I asked him what was wrong and he said that Pike was dead. I told my blubbering dad that Pike was weak and that I will not die! Getting caught up in the moment, I beat my dad to death with my staff. I have always one-upped Pike. He found out that he had magic at age 12, I found out that I had magic at age 8. He started walking at age 2, I was walking at 3 weeks old. I know I will not die because if I do, then I would not of one-upped Pike again. One day, I might even be one of the leaders of the Conclave! The Conclave should be glad to have me, I don't need them but I will still join them. Author: Ulvak Date: Thu Apr 22 03:05:47 2010 Subject One-Upped(repost) Up until lately, I had an older brother.

Author: Ulvak Date: Tue Jun 1 06:59:58 2010 Subject A Master for Ulvak Artemis hears a knock on his door. "Who dares disturb me?" He says. A young mage enters the room and says, "It is I, Ulvak Bentali, Sir." "What business do you have here?" "You were recommended by the other Magi." "Recommended for?" He responded. "For a master, Sir. I have looked around thouroughly, but nobody would accept me." Said Ulvak. "I don't like being the last choice, Boy." "Sorry Sir, but I actually didn't know about you." Artemis looks at Ulvak like he doesn't believe him and asks "What do you know of me Mr. Bentali?" "Nothing except that you exist." I shall take you as my apprentice Ulvak Bentali. If you disobey me, not even Nuitari will be able to Identify that its your body he found in Palanthas Sewers." "Yes, Sir. I will not let you down." "Now leave before I change my mind," Ulvak Bentali leaves his new master's study quickly with his head held high.
