The Hall of Echoes
This is the main bardic library of Saragost, a repository of learning, lore and civic history. Arcane matters are not covered in depth, as the Sanctuary of the Seven Archways has the monopoly on those. The Hall is indeed echoing, owing to a quirk of the architecture. It is filled with bookcases stuffed with volumes. A good push would knock a row of them down like dominoes. Up the side of one wall are scroll compartments, with parchment rolls crammed into them – an easy surface to climb, if one was inclined to do so.
Michael Dunsany presides over this archive, assisted by a group of 11 bards. These others are rarely found in the library, as they spend their days travelling and learning new lore to add to it.
The Hall of Echoes is open for use only by appointment, and only by those that Michael Dunsany can trust to be respectful of the collection of knowledge.
