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 bluish black leather-bound book to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Yuvir' scribed in rich blue ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Yuvir's book..

Author: Yuvir Date: Wed Dec 26 17:06:24 2018 Subject [01/13] Lost in the Abyss

Today, at a day of light snow... The Lordcity of Kalaman saw better days. In the middle of a turf war between the armies of Takhisis and the crusaders from Solamnia, every day living within the city, especially without its actual government lord, was quite difficult for Kalaman's citizens. Even in the recent wintry days, when visibility was often restricted due to the wildly unpredictable days of snowfall, war between the two sides kept everyone on edge. But Yuvir cared for none for that. She had a job to do. She strode down the recently brushed street, cloaked in a red and green garment carefully enchanted to be water-resistant. She walked right inside of the Night Goblin tavern, during the closing hours of the business when most of the drunkards and brawling regulars had already left. Caring nothing for the fight that was still going on between two straggling and drunk Dragonarmy soldiers, she wiped her cloak free of snow and took a seat at the front stools. The bartender, a large muscular male who was losing his hair, eyed her as she took a seat. "Yeah? What you want?" he asked gruffly. "Oh, just a shot of your hardest stuff," she sweetly replied and began to lower her hood, revealing her silver hair done up in twin tails. Her ears were long and pointed, and her skin was paler than anyone else's in the room. "And if you happen to be free after your shift, sir, perhaps you," she purred. The male snorted and folded his arms as he checked out the cloaked female. "Oh? And what are you offering to me?" he asked with a raised eyebrow. "Well, since you asked nicely..." Yuvir undid the front clasp to her cloak and opened it enough to expose her bare shoulders and a sizeable portion of her chest. Hers was only small by comparison to some of the bartender's more rowdy guests, but she wasn't completely flat. The black leotard she wore under her cloak, with its translucent nature, left little to the imagination. The Dargonesti was quite pale- skinned, and she exuded some sort of sweet scent the male couldn't help but notice that he smelled before. 'Where have I smelled that scent before... somewhere at sea, maybe?' "Well, sir?" she prompted with a coy and inviting look. "What do you think?"
