"You must come to see my library, Stinger" Kathleen's message read,
"It would aid so many people in their travels throughout this land."
Once again, my interest was peaked and the travelling itch descended.
I arranged to meet Frarc at the Britain moongate in Felucca and from
there, we made our way west past the river's end and then south to
the library. All was quiet in the forest and we met little opposition
other than a few orcs and mongbats. Ettins and other such beasts have
been seen in the forest near there as well.
Eirene met us at the door and ushered us inside to show us around.
As she described the history and workings of the library many people
passed through, a few of them stopping to chat. Telia's Rune Library
was established November 24th, 1998. Telia, a mage scribe, met Eirene
and sold her a spellbook. With this small act a friendship was formed.
Discussions of a join project ensued, a rune library. It was a rocky
beginning and twice all the runes were lost, once under mysterious
circumstances involving a nightmare. Telia left long ago on a new
business venture and visits from time to time. Kathleen now runs the
shop keeping which is named in honor of her friend and co-founder.
The library is open to people from all walks of life. If you are accosted,
however, and none of the staff are about you can report the troublemaker.
(See webpage) The library has a vast array of runes to towns and other
locations of special interest such as treasure maps and dungeons.
(Visit their webpage for a complete listing) At the library you can
also find several purveyor's of fine goods offering a varied assortment
of provisions, arms, and magical items and any sort of thing you might
wish for. Grandmaster Bard, Lady Shira a neighbor had this to say
about Telia's Rune Library, "It's a place to forget time."
