The Great Library of Palanthas

An Aesthetic shows you to the private room of Skol. A banana peel on the floor is overlooked and then... WOOOOSH!! You slip and slide headlong through the open window and land face first in...

Skol's Dump

The room stinks, not just that it's bad, but it isn't even a room... You're out the back door of the library, between buildings, in the middle of a garbage pile. Good lords the stench is overwelming! A small gully dwarf dressed in rags looks up and says 'You read book? Me write em good!' He beams innocently and looks around with the glee of a small child. Skol glances up as Astinus carefully climbs into the 'room'. 'Lo lo Gil... Astinus!' he beams with pride 'Me remember!' 'Yes, but I think I hear Reorx calling little one.' Astinus says as he clears the debris from a small table in the pile. He grins as Skol rushes off on some building project, 'Strange gully that one, but he does well, take a look for yourself.'

Stories of Ansalon from the view of Skol.

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 small volume on the table in front of you.
You note the spine bears the word 'Skol' scribed in dark red ink.

Subject  Rats! Weeeeee




Skol was flying through the air screaming at the top of his lungs...

'WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!' he screamed as the lands whipped past
him in a teary-eyed blur.

Landing with a loud thump, he looked up and saw the most beautiful lady ever.
'Mommy?' he asked with the voice of a giggling three-year old.

'No little one, not mommy' said Goldmoon as she noticed the little gully
dwarf with a start. 'But I do have need of your help...'

'You are good at catching rats are you not little one?' she inquired.

Skol agreed absolutely, 'Me good smash rat, can eat, them yummy!' Goldmoon
shook her head with a slightly hidden smile.

'Not this rat my anguished one.', she stated 'This rat is a foul beast
of the great plagued one, it's taste would be fatal..'

Skol looked dishearted and sad, then brightened almost immediately.

'Me smash still? Me good smash rat, yup yup!' he burst out. The gully
rubbed his hands together with eager anticipation.

'Yes little one, go smash the rat, smash it good and dead.' she said in
with an uncharacteristic grimace.

Skol quickly ran out the door of the inn to where the dread beast was, seeing
it spreading its disease to all within it's reach.

'DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE' the gully screamed as he launched into his attack,
his makeshift dagger flashing in the sun. The rat made a strange face then
spoke!!!

The astonished gully dwarf quickly fled as fast as he was able, little legs
pumping as he giggled... A talking rat!!! As the dwarf began to run into walls
and doors he began to notice that he seemed to be quite confused.. even more
than normal for one of his mental capacity.

Skol found a nice quiet spot behind a trash bin and curled up for a nice long
nap, smashing the rat would have to wait, how gully smash rat when no can walk
straight? Eventually he woke, only to find that someone else had smashed the
terrible disease-ridden beast. With a sniffle he walked off through the trees
to find another rat to smash.

(Morgions diseased rat quest, lowbies, gully like much) Skol agrees
absolutely.
