An Introduction to Candlekeep - by Ed Greenwood

WelcomeForgotten Realms

Well Met, traveler, and welcome ye to Candlekeep.

Thou art now in the grandest library in all the Realms. Seeketh out knowledge and lore within these halls, and may Oghma guide ye.

"It has been given to me to see glimpses of the future, moments of the measureless time that lie ahead for this world of Toril, called by some the Forgotten Realms. I sit here among halls upon halls and chambers upon chambers crammed with books, books that capture something of our great past. All too often, folk want to know where the bones of great kings or legendary dragons lie...or more precisely where their treasure may be found, if the truth be told. There are a few questors however, whose eyes hold the light of wonder, and who want to know more of this vast, glorious, historied world..." - Alaundo of Candlekeep
(taken from the Forgotten Realms Campaign Conspectus)
