Located in Zilargo’s southeastern most port city, the Library of Korranberg is the greatest repository of general knowledge in Khorvaire. In addition to serving as a resource for scholars and explorers, the library often funds expeditions to study ancient cultres or unexplored lands.
The library is based in Korranberg, but keeps safe houses in the capita*l cities of every nation in Khorvaire. These soffices provide shelter for library research teams. While the library does not focus on magic as much as the Twelve or the Arcane Congress, it has had centuries to fill its vaults. The restricted archives and secret vaults are heavily defended and shielded against scrying and other forms of spying.
The library appears larger on the inside than from the outside-and from the outside, it looks massive. When a researcher reserves time at the library, a clerk provides a catalog stone-an orange colored crystal keyed to the topics the researcher wishes to study. A private study cell is provided, which initially looks like a small pool of light in a vast, open darkness located somewhere in the library’s extradimensional space. Within the pool of light, a desk, chair, work table and a narrow pedestal are placed for the researcher’s use, along with quills ink, parchment and sealing wax. When the catalog stone is placed atop the pedestal, alcoves formed of shelves full of books and scrolls rush out of the darkness to create the walls of the study cell. When the researcher completes his work, removing the stone from the pedestal causes the shelves to fall away so that the researcher can exit the study cell.
