Shadow of the Demon Lord @ Gamezilla RPG night
Free Scholars Library
The two-story library is run by live-in elderly librarian Mrs Ellis, who is familiar with all the books stored there. The collection includes scholarly works, but also fiction, children's stories, and books of magic.
The library was established in Chuton by the Free Scholars, to give scribes and academics a place to study and write outside of the cities, and also to share ideas freely that might be unwelcome in certain political circles. Henri the faun srcivener is a frequent visitor, as is Alaric Clay, but all are welcome to read the books.
During the events of the recent Festival of Forgiveness, a curse was placed on the library which sucked all the ink from the pages of the books, causing them to become animate and go in search of ink to renew themselves. The ink was stored in Mrs Ellis' pen, the focus of the curse, and tried to prevent interference in the curse by forming itself into a giant spider-like form. Thanks to the actions of Henri, Waylon, Bzzzantine and Alaric, the books were restored and the curse lifted, but not without the destruction of a few tomes and major injury to Mrs Ellis, though she is now recovering well.
