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 small volume to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Zielna' scribed in unearthly white ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Zielna's book..


Author: Zielna Date: Sat Aug 28 13:26:28 2010 Subject Green Sea It started like any other day for Zielna. She went out, foraged for supplies and returned to her home. Then the unusual happened. The lines she had dropped into the water to catch fish had nothing on them. She dove into the water to investigate, but came up empty handed. Shaking her head, she swam a bit farther, noticing that the sea life had seemed to evaporate from sight. She returned to her home just outside of Palanthas and packed up what she had managed to gather and started toward the city to sell the foodstuffs to the locals. Along the way, she heard the talk of the strange green that seemed to settle over the coastline and the damage that had been done to the docks. Curious, she decided to take a look and see for herself. She was startled at the amount of damage to the docks. She dropped her packs in a safe place and slipped off the docks, swimming under them to look for more damage. Luckily nothing under the water had been harmed, as far as she could tell, but still the sight of no fish worried her. Pulling herself back up from the water, she carefully wandered the streets, listening for more about the strange happening.
