An Aesthetic shows you to a small reading room.

Stories of Ansalon from the view of Maddocks.

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 an elegant book bound in elf-skin on the table in front of you.
You note the spine bears the word 'Maddocks' scribed in brilliant purple ink.

Born into royalty, some may say, others may say captivity. As a royal
daughter, one tends to lead a sheltered life, protected by everyone, from
everything. As long as I can remember, I have had guards within earshot,
whether I wanted them or not. After a couple decades, it becomes something
you just get used to. It was quickly learned that I have magic in my blood,
and I was sent away to hone this magic. Now, when I say sent away, I don't
mean I was sent to the far reaches of Ansalon. Sent away, as a royal child,
means you board at the school, instead of the palace. So, I've been boarding
at the school for a while, kept seperate from the other students after
class. It's for my protection, they say, I think it's overkill, personally.
Finally, my parents have agreed to back off the security.

At first I lived in a cave. At age 5 I started learning about magic.
First ventriloquate, then detecting magic, then i was invisible, after that, I was harder to hit in fighting.
After a while, I acidently cast a lightning bolt at the head theiwar and was almost killed.
That is when I became an outcast.

Subject     The Finding of Magic

The first time I encountered my own magic I was playing with my friends
and one of them just started rising off of the ground. We were scared
because we didn't know what was going on. We ran to our parents and told
them. Luckily one of them spoke some words and the boy slowly floated down.
I found out later that I could use magic and that I was the one that made
the kid rise. I went to the man that dispelled the levitation and asked him
to teach me. He accepted. I quickly mastered the art, and moved beyond what
he could teach me and set off to find someone more powerful to teach me.
While I was looking for someone, I fell into a band of mercenaries. They
helped me gain experience in battle, but my art has seemed to suffer. I long
to find others that can teach me further in the art; but till then, here I
am with a band of mercenaries and looking for more.
