Candlekeep

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 Alaundo, who among other visions, foresaw the doom of Bhaal. To gain entry to the halls of wisdom, a visitor must gift the library collection with a new tome of immense value. The path to Candlekeep is called the Way of the Lion.

The monks of Candlekeep call themselves the Avowed, and are ruled by the Keeper of the Tomes, Ulraunt, and his assistant, First Reader Tethtoril.

Candlekeep has been your home for your whole life, and you know it well, from Winthrop’s Inn, to the Barracks and Storehouse, to the Temple of Oghma, to the great Keep itself, which you have never been allowed to enter. The sage Gorion, your occasional guardian and father-figure, also makes his home there.
