The Great Library of Palanthas

An Aesthetic shows you to a small reading room.

Stories of Ansalon from the view of Moctah.

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 heavy platinum-covered book on the table in front of you.
You note the spine bears the word 'Moctah' scribed in dull white ink.

"It has been three years now" the half elf sighed. Moctah often siged when
there was a subject of importance on his mind. This subject perhaps the
draining he had yet to face. 

"Three years of trying to maintain a ridiculous peace between the light
and dark living within me. This constant battle is tearing my very soul
in two."

Pulling on his thick beard the half elf groaned in frustration. "My 'guild' 
does not do well in relation with the light, and the darkness... she calls
to me"

Coming to an abrupt conclusion to his self examination the half elf said,
I believe it is time to be aligned with the forces of darkness, perhaps
even learning it's queens' point of view would do me well."

The massive doors of the keep stood before him. Impenetrable, immovable,
stable beyond description. The gigantic grey stone walls dwarfed the
gates which in reponse looked down upon the five foot 8 inch half-elf.

Seeing the fear in her new companions eyes Ayasana said "You have not
come this far to falter have you?" Moctah replied "No my lady I have come
this far that I would learn to never falter again"

"It is strange" the half-elf said. "There was a time not so long ago
where the light in me would have both cringed and raged at such a sight"
The half elf paused. "But there is no light in me to repel this glory
any longer"

Ayasana gave a solemn nod, then spoke. "It was a wise descision for you
to leave your weaker half behind. Our queen only rewards the strong and
there is not strength in the ways of your former god"

Moctah with an enthusiasm that had been missing for some time responded.
"I know. That is why I am at peace now. The weakness in me would not
allow my true self to be seen. But now I feel the absense of my torment
strengthen me"

Ayasanas' response was cold but not suprising. "Your strength or lack
thereof will be proven during your training. It is not wise to boast
untill or unless you have not only endured but embraced our code. You are
young and inexperienced, but perhaps your zeal will give you what is
required to wear the mantle of obedience that awaits you."

With this Ayasana signaled the gate guards to let her and Moctah though
the doors and they entered not only a new keep, but a new era of life.
