Welcome, friends, to my library. Once just my workplace, it’s now my greatest treasure. To introduce myself, I am Acanthus, this region’s foremost sage.
Over the years since King Tokolvor expanded the Klavek kingdom, I’ve helped adventurers, merchants, and travelers alike gather vital information. Whether about where they’re going, who and what they’ll encounter, or how to deal with all three, I’ve been there. As fine a collection of views, thoughts and facts as exists in all Klavek is upon my scrollshelves and bookcases. Perhaps nothing rivals it in all Aventyr, but that is for others to decide!
However, now I’ve made my own fortune and live an easy life, I intend to share it all. What I know to be true, surmise to be broadly correct, am in the process of clarifying, and imagine is worth further investigation, will become yours. Topics will be wide, allowing interested parties to gain insights wondrous and delightful, amazing and awe-inspiring, and hopefully entertaining. They’ll be worthy of a pipe of tobacco at a campfire, if not a meal at a prince’s table, during their retelling.
Welcome to the Future
Of course, I’ll take commissions, and happily dig into my resources, giving you my opinions on any and all topics. But remember, what you hear and read in my reports may set your feet inching, heart pumping, and mind racing. Far horizons and distant adventures are yours to discover when you know where to look. For what is a visit to a sage if not the key to the locked chest of unexpected but great rewards!
So, my friends, I await word from you with regard to your questions and queries. Until then, I’ll make my thoughts available on myriad subjects whenever something interesting comes my way. Good fortune to you all!
