Where to find


[A select collection of the most notable letters sent from Candlekeep. Many are dry reports of celestial movements or incomprehensible details of arcane rituals. However, this letter catches your eye.]

To the Sage Elminster,

Over the past year, I've delivered many of your letters to Master Gorion, so I wanted to be the one to deliver this sad news. Alas, he is with us no more.

Gorion and his ward left Candlekeep soon after your last letter to him arrived. They departed in the middle of the night, but were waylaid shortly after on the road to Beregost. The Gatewarden tells me that Gorion saw to it that several of his attackers joined him in the next world before he was struck down. I hope this brings you the same grim comfort it brings me.

Of his ward, there was no sign.

In some better news, I received your letter to the library and was able to find much of the material you requested. It has been carefully secured and will travel with this letter.

Yours in honour,

Trystan P. Shale, Librarian at Candlekeep

PS. I hope you'll forgive my curiosity, but might I ask - why do you need so much information about Bhaalspawn? What exactly are you working on?
