    The Dark Tower in the Village of Scythe houses one of the most extensive collections of Forbidden Literature in the whole of Britannia.

    It is not for the faint of heart. You can find tales of horror and detailed descriptions of the Towers eldirich rituals amongst the torn and dessicated pages. But be careful. The denizens of the Tower hunger and sometimes the price for such Dark Knowledge is more than one might be willing to give.

    Aha! A library thread. We just made a decision yesterday to change up our libraries a bit. We're making our book shelves into public secures and will place copies of our player books on them so those who want can take a copy for themselves. We'll replace them as needed.

    Thus I'll list the Foghaven Library which is the first library I'm working on for this new project. It's coordinates are:

    11'10" N 38'15 E, East of Britain in Trammel

    If you want a short cut to get there, there is a house teleporter in the home directly north of the Britain moongate. You can use this to reach our guild house in Foghaven. The library is just north of the guild house.
