The Library

"The Library" as it is known throughout Avalon City houses a vast collection of books and scrolls, one of the largest in all Therafim, rivaled by only a few, and surpassed by even fewer. This majestic marble building is a beautiful work of art, with numerous statues and fountains decorating the outside, and many windows providing a great deal of light in the reading areas. The storage areas, however, where the majority of the books are kept until needed, are held in highly secure, windowless areas, and are impregnable from the outside save through something as powerful as dragonfire or similar attacks. Only nobles and noted scholars and wizards are truly accepted at the Library, although merchants are tolerated, and adventurers willing to pay for use of the library might also be admitted. Those coming from the slums are thrown out immediately.
