[B]Auric’s Story So Far…[/b]
Coming from a long line of pureblood wizards, Auric was raised within the Wizard’s guild and insulated from the harshness of the world around him. The young apprentice was attracted to the library and spent long hours studying the magic, history, and the gods.

As many of the scholars in the guild, he sought answers to the tragedy that had struck the other cities. Recently Auric has begun to believe that the answers must be found outside of the guild’s library in the cities of the past. He has set out to recover that knowledge.

Feature: Library Access
Though others must often endure extensive interviews and significant fees to gain access to even the most common archives in your library, you have free and easy access to the majority of the library, though it might also have repositories of lore that are too valuable, magical,or secret to permit anyone immediate access.You have a working knowledge of your cloister’s personnel and bureaucracy, and you know how to navigate those connections with some ease. Additionally, you are likely to gain preferential treatment at other libraries across the Realms, as professional courtesy shown to a fellow scholar.


There’s nothing I like more than a good mystery.
I’m willing to listen to every side of an argument before I make my own judgment.
No Limits. Nothing should fetter the infinite possibility inherent in all existence. (Chaotic))
Knowledge. The path to power and self-improvement is through knowledge. (Neutral)
I’ve been searching my whole life for the answer to a certain question.
I work to preserve a library, university, scriptorium, or monastery.
I am easily distracted by the promise of information.
