The Castle of Pine Library
The Castle of Pine Library is situated in the mountains that divide the Lands of the Scholars and The Great Desert. The Castle defends the pass that connects these two lands, keeping the citizens of the coastal community safe from the Githyanki Hordes that reside in The Great Desert. On the desert end of the pass is the castle’s main fortification. A large city has built up behind the wall. There are few Westward fortifications and several smaller villages in the pass that leads down to the valley.
The Library has been in a state of emergency in the past months. The emergency is predicated on reports of an army being built across the desert by the City of Brackland and compounded by reports of a Gith plague spreading in the Southernmost Valley, an occurrence unknown in living memory. Troops and supplies have begun to flood in from Sand Library, the Library on the peninsula where the Council of Scholars is seated.
