The Great Library of Palanthas

An Aesthetic shows you to a small reading room.

Stories of Ansalon from the view of Aikanero.

A little gully dwarf runs by and says 'Wordwrap Off 65 80.'
The gully continues 'Eyes hurt? Turn Color OFF!! (regular story dates)

Astinus says 'Enter the main library here to view only the author list.'
Astinus gently places a miniscule pocket book on the table in front of you.
You note the spine bears the word 'Aikanero' scribed in deep brown ink.

Subject     Dark moon rising

As I sat in dark forest only starts as my light I felt completely relaxed, this
was first time in many years that I had urge to go out and watch night sky. 
Years I had sold my services as a mercenary to those that can pay and newer did
I asked questions, I just did my job. Urge to get more money and more magic
items had driven me too far from what I used to be, now my soul was dark and it
still wanted more magic. As I sat there I felt that I had drifted away from my
good deity. Things that I have done to get what I needed had driven me to pray
other deity for better and darker magic.

As I watched night sky I noticed black disk cover some stars and I felt that my
magic was getting stronger. I stood up as  I felt that there was a question in
the air and word yes formed to my lips

As I got back to my hidden cave I looked around of my magic books and I felt
that they are too weak for me now, I needed more. Question was where to get more
magic knowledge and have a peace to study them? Answer was simple. I sat down
and started to write letter to my contacts but how to proceed? I needed to move
carefully as I had long been hiding from my enemies. I had tried my best to
cover my tracks and make sure that those that tried to follow me where dead. Yes
and my current knowledge maybe issue to them, I must hide some of what I know
and proceed carefully....

Subject     Travelling in the night

Today I received letter from my contacts in the Tower and I was informed that
people are not looking me anymore and that old "mistake" is buried deep in the
shadows. Letter also said that they would like to meet me and talk about my
services and other important issues. I thought while and then I decided that it
was time to get ready for this journey, maybe it will be a profitable or even
challenging one.

While I was packing up my travel gear and spell books I stopped to think about
fate and small things that toss us around in the path of life. Like in my case I
was just curious young elven playing with magic and small mistake with magic
pills caused two of my friends to die and of course I was accused and that night
I had to flee or face angry relatives. In that night I lost my family name and I
had to start to live as new man. Funny how I was tossed from light to darkness
and still I felt like I belonged here.

Night is coming and I need to hurry as it is safer to travel hiding in the
darkness than in bright daylight..
