Worlds Shall Speak
Candlekeep is a many towered fortress library that stands on a crag, looking down upon the Sea of Swords. The library is filled with books and scrolls of knowledge, and it was the home of the great seer and prophet Alaundo. To gain entry to the halls of wisdom, a visitor must gift the library collection with a new tome of immense value. The shrewd gatekeepers accept tomes of no less than 1,000gp.
The path to Candlekeep is called the Way of the Lion. Candlekeep is also name for the small town encircling the keep which supplies the library and offers refuge to those not permitted inside.
