Tim Lanway Entry
1. LIBRARY STONE: It is a fist sized gem that contains the entire contents of a library of an ancient kingdom that prized itself on magical and engineering feats and that prized knowledge above all else.
This stone was created when the kingdom was overrun by barbarians. The caretakers believed that knowledge must be preserved, so with a great work of magic they condensed the library into a gem, along with the soul of the chief librarian.
This soul acts as a guide and index to access the books.
One uses this stone by entering a dream trance in the presence of the stone. In this dream he will enter the library and be able to talk with the librarian and read the books. Also, any book read in the presence of the gem will be placed in this library.
