The Library

From Alathra Wiki

The Library is a tower located in central Gaushan that acts as a massive collection of information on anything from highly technical machinery to ancient arcane relics. The exact process of it's creation is unknown.


The Library appeared after a light shot out of the ground at the center of the ruins of "The Vatican", the remains of witch can be seen at the base of the tower. Over time a large tree grew around the light, becoming wrapped in rising stone.

Near the entrance of The Library is a partial submerged ruin, which historic records indicated was the last place of worship of the Goddess "Miku" of the The Holy Pantheon.


The Library sits atop a large hill overlooking a flat valley. Near it's entrance is a small open area. There is a road from it's south facing exit towards the east.
